Next we listened to the audio from My Breakfast With Blassie while listening to Bob James records

We kept the Bob James pretty low and it fit in really well. It seemed as if it was actually playing at the Sambo's Restaurant where Kaufman and Blassie were sharing their breakfast. If we played the music too loud, it made us feel like we were in a Kohl's Department Store back in 1992.

Next we listented to the audio from My Dinner With Andre while listening to Klaus Schulze albums!

This was a perfect match. Since the film was just two dudes talking at dinner the whole time, their conversation was a wonderful complement to Schulze's wonderful synthesized Moog drones and bloops.

Next we listened to the audio from All That Heaven Allows while playing Loren Connors albums

This was one of the best combinations ever! The unique subtleties of Connors' emotive guitar playing served as a really wonderful score to this film.

Next we listened to the audio from FM along with three White Rainbow albums

These albums sounded nice with this film. The new White Rainbow is really good. It was especially affecting as it was backing up Jeff Dugan's inspirational speech at the end. The radio station was saved and everything turned out just fine.

Yesterday we listened to the audio from What About Bob along with "New Age Of Earth" by Ashra

This sounded wonderful! I played the Ashra album twice in a row and it was the perfect accompaniment for the film. Its pulsating beeps and relaxing electronic drones soaked up Dreyfuss and Murray's comedic tension very well.

"Don't hassle me, I'm local."

Next we listened to the audio from season three of The Bob Newhart Show along to Raymond Scott's "Soothing Sounds For Baby (Volumes 1-3)"

These went together okay, but the combination wasn't anything special.

This morning we listened to the audio from Gremlins along with the soundtracks to two other talkies scored by Jerry Goldsmith

These went together really well! Since Jerry Goldsmith did the music for all three of these they congealed together just fine, even though the soundtrack for "A Patch of Blue" was done in '65 and "Sleeping With The Enemy" in '91.
