View Full Version : News Gangfight at Rain Man and DaFace headquarters


Rain Man

We're sitting around working in our quiet office, and I keep hearing a lot of high-pitched yelling. Since we're near the state capitol we semi-frequently have protesters march by, maybe four or five times a year, so I figured it was either that or a big school field trip with a bunch of noisy kids.

So I rise up from the couch and, lo and behold, it's catfight city six floors below us. It was some big mass of teenage girls, and there were multiple fights going on. They're rolling in the streets and whaling on each other on the sidewalk. DaFace's windows point a different direction, so he saw the fights start, and I saw them after they were rolling.

There were no shootings and nobody lost any clothing, so that's probably all the news I've got. A police car rolled up and they all ran, probably 30 or 40 of them.

So what's the most exciting thing you saw at work today?

I see crackheads and just released prisoners all the time outside of my office building. It doesn't help that we're across the street from the courts and we're surrounded by bail bonds places.

I win.

I probably win unless there are acts of prostitution going on.

Christian rock band?

I win.

Holy rollers?

I don't know exactly what this means, but I think I win.

Snoop Doggs driver

Hmm. I think I win if it was just the driver.

Someone shitting and pissing his pants.

I definitely win.

So what's the most exciting thing you saw at work today?

I met with some extremely high level creatives that asked me to join their new boutique media company, as a partner, that will oversee and direct the careers of more than 20 producers, 30 bands (all with major label record deals), help create a new music library, place new music in film and TV and create new revenue streams with existing works through advertising, streaming, placements and more. I was assured that I would still have time to compose for film and TV and would of course, oversee the creation of the music library.

Oh, and the usual yoga pants Yummy Mommies walking up and down my street all day to keep their hot little bodies fit through my studio window.

It's important to realize that "rolling in the streets" is literal, and said street is one of the more major streets in downtown Denver (three lane, one way road), and this was right in the middle of rush hour. I saw a number of these kids just about get run over.

Definitely not the usual scenery outside the office.

That's awesome, man.

So are you going to do it?

Thanks, guys! I'm not sure because there are a lot of parameters to work out.

Also, and this is kind of a strange thing to admit and I don't want to come across as an arse (although I probably will), I haven't actually worked the past two years because of the baby and my wife's cancer, yet my music catalog has generated substantial income. Now that the two year old is in full time preschool and I have 7-8 hours a day to actually work again, I have a half a dozen meetings set up and I want to listen to what everyone has to offer before making any commitments.

My ultimate goal (well, as of today) is to score a limited run TV series and feature films on a regular basis. As anyone would probably guess, those gigs are hard to get and very few composers can meet the demands of writing 20-30 minutes of music per week for a TV show and/or compose an incredible score of anywhere from 60-90 minutes for a feature film. But, I *think* I can handle it, so it's just a matter of finding a production company or producer that believes it, too.

So, I guess the bottom line is that I want to leave my options open until they've been closed for me.

Thanks again!

PS - Thanks for allowing me to ramble. Often times, I open up Word and write to myself to think things through. Crazy, I know, but it's effective.

That one was right in the sweet spot [along with Blue Thunder and Starman] that were grownup movies that I was still too young to go with my parents to, but old enough to watch my sister back at home. Those were 3 of their 'date movies' from that time that I recall. My mom loathed the very idea of a sitter and they never did anything that wasn't family style until I was old enough to stay home alone [well, with lil sis in tow].

Saw Officer and Gentleman later on my own, but never the other two.

Legit good movie, and the basis of one of the early classic Simpson's bits.

I was tarping a roof, and there was a cute chubby goth mommy 2 doors away blowing bubbles with her kid. Occasionally she would bend over to talk to the child, and when she did..... I got a panty shot. That was my exciting thing at work. After that the next coolest thing was a "gang" of Hispanics using lawnmowers, weed eaters, and blowers on that same neighborhood.
