    By the way, major belated kudos to Ray Toler for his award-winning design work. Well done, Ray!

    Mysta will not tolerate being addressed as “Moon Maid,” and I’m sure she was already angry even before her real name was not used by Ms. Bellowthon. It’s insulting to be objectified as “a lunarian woman” or a “moon maid” rather than addressed by name as an individual.

    Knowing Mysta’s short fuse, this doesn’t look good. I wonder what she thinks she can accomplish confronting Miss P.- oops, sorry- Ms. B.

    .

    I concur with those who think that Bribery is at the bottom of this.

    The poor Congressthing is beset on all sides today! She can’t trust her crooked employee, Selfy (imagine that!), and now she is being stared down by Mysta Chimera (who is not “Moon Maid,” thank you). Sometimes a racketeer just can’t catch a break!

    I’m afraid that Mysta will be the last person of record to see the Representative alive after Selfie is confronted for his “dipping.”

    I wonder if Mike has been watching the “Star Trek: The Next Generation” episode “First Contact” lately.

    Not “First Contact” the movie with the Borg. Shudders

    Mysta’s come to face off her racist persecutor, and it looks like she’s wearing her moon clothes. A bold move! She’s not backing down an inch from the hater, or her new lunar identity. Meanwhile, the racist slob and her minion refuse to acknowledge her new identity and demonstrate their hate by referring to her in other terms, seeking to diminish her. Contemptible creatures showing their true colors.

    For those of you who have expressed a desire to see Mysta “zap” Rep, Bellowthon, remember – that would be playing right in to her hands. If Mysta did anything like that, and if Bellowthon survived, it would be all over the media – “See. I told you all how dangerous these people are” Mysta (and Honeymoon) need to avoid anything like that. It was probably unwise for Mysta to go see Bellowthon alone like this.

    By the way, where is this? Did Mysta travel to D.C. or does the Congresswoman maintain an office in Tracy’s city?

    Direct confrontation is a bad idea. if something should befall Rep. Bellowthon by others would be placed on Chimera’s head.

    John Barry is certainly a favorite of mine, and a major influence on Michael Giacchino’s score for The Incredibles – nearly every track has an analogue among Barry’s Bond pieces.

    .

    I suspect director Brad Bird leaned heavily on John Barry while assembling the temp track.

    There are a few modern-era composers whose work I enjoy, one of whom is Alexandre Desplat, who first came to my attention when he composed the score for the film adaptation of the Belgian graphic novel series Largo Winch

    .

    .

    … as well as the score for Wes Anderson’s stop-motion animated adaptation of Roald Dahl’s *The Fantastic Mr. Fox."

    Still lament having heard – after the fact – that Ennio Morricone had conducted some of his works live in New York a few years back.

    Another thing about Bond films …

    .

    Typically, John Barry would rework the title song into one or more instrumental pieces and insert it – at various tempos – into the body of the film.

    .

    However, in the case of Skyfall

    .

    … singer Adele built the title song around the first four notes of the Monty Norman theme.

    Dang, meant to include this link to the Skyfall title sequence along with the piece I wrote about Adele …
