WhiteTrashMessiah,
Afraid I must disagree. The Scilons have appropriated the main theme from Crimson Tide, not from The Rock. Have a listen:

Score to Freewinds video:
http://video.google.com.au/videoplay?do ... 1444815006

Main theme, Crimson Tide
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMXU_kj-es0

There are many similarities between the scores for the two films, which were released only a year apart … Crimson Tide in 1995 and The Rock in 1996. It’s easy to mistake a short clip of one for the other - especially the opening themes, which begin with the same 5-1 upbeat, with similar meter and background instrumentation. In any event, we can agree it is Hans Zimmer's music that is running on this Scilon promo video. All may be on the up-and-up, with permission duly given by Mr. Zimmer. In case not, his agent has been notified.
(BTW, I also lurve Zimmer's music.) :)

Dear OT,



Hello!



I am getting lots of feedback from those returning from the Maiden Voyage events on the Freewinds.



These events have already started being shown at PAC and this upcoming Saturday, July 12th, will be night 2!



The Freewinds has just undergone a complete re-fit and believe it or not, the facilities for the delivery of OT9 and 10 have now been built!



You are going to receive a unique behind the scenes tour of this Sea Org vessel and you will see footage from LRH from the early years of the Apollo and hear LRH in lectures previously unavailable to the public.



There is also going to be a special Sea Org Honor Guard opening performance that will totally blow you away!



I need you to spread the word to every Scientologist that you know to attend through calls and e-mails, the event starts promptly at 6:30 pm.

There is NO Scientologist that should miss this or the rest of the Maiden Voyage Events!



I look forward to hearing back from you on this.



ML,

Songbird,

Thank you. I sit corrected. The thing about Zimmer's music is that although it's very distinctive as his work, it has a certain commonality threaded through it. You know... It has a sense and feel of bravery, daring-do and high adventure about it when you close your eyes and listen to it, but.. well, all of his music sounds like that across most all of the films he's done this type of thing for.

See above :D

Excellent manning of the harpoons, Songbird!

With Zimmer's "chumminess" with TC, it IS possible that he's given his permission for the use of the piece, especially since the Failwinds and Red October have a common seafaring theme (I note that a lot of Zimmer's stuff winds up in stuff that has something to do with the sea(!)), BUT it's always better to be sure. I remember some time ago.... I have a "Rock Ghod" friend who was having his music being used by a guitar outlet who used a clip from a song of his to flog their wares. Now, it sounded like they were legit enough to afford the clip (according to him, it's more expensive to license the clip than the whole song!), but the fact was, they were using it without permission. The end result was him lawyering up and shutting the commercial down.

Anyway, the moral of the story is, if you think it may not be kosher, QUESTION IT. At the very least, it'll stop the SciFags from using a song source illegally (and they have the temerity to scream about "copyright"?), and at most, enough people writing in to question may make someone sit up and take notice... Often people granting music licenses have their hands full enough that they don't need the overload of multiple copyright infringement queries. It may make them think twice about licensing to the source of the irritation again.

I find it very strengthening and uplifting... When I'm tired and life has butthurt me by ripping me a second "alimentary canal", I slip The Rock soundtrack into the CD-R drive and get a new boost of strength. As I said, his music tends to become somewhat repetitive if you listen to it soundtrack after soundtrack, but if you pick a certain one or theme, it works wonders.. Hmmm.. I have the Miami Vice soundtrack on cassette somewhere here, I should dig it out xD

P.S.: I also loved The Rock as a film. It had it's share of apocryphal moments (example: VX nerve agent is clear to straw colored), but enabled me to suspend disbelief enough to enjoy it. I always enjoy Cage and Connery too, which helps...

Sorry all, didn't mean to derail... As you were.
MAYHEM. MUTINY. ENTURBULATION.

There are other emails professing the up coming release of IX and X, but I cant be arsed sifting through the hundreds of saved emails.

It's just moar of the regging for the attainment of non existent uber-man/abilities returned, scientology promises to deliver and never has.

I wonder what they could POSSIBLY offer for OT9 and 10?????
Could they possibly even suggest to an OT8 who has spend 100s of thousands of dollars getting there that he/she has YET MORE BTs to get rid of? I can't imagine that would fly with anyone. Not even Tom Cruise.
Are there more non-existant super abilities they can BS people with? Who would buy it at this point? Especially with LRH being dead and all.

For OT IX and X, aren't they building some kind of gym...because that's what is f@ckin' is you Scieno retards...a godd@mn GYMNASIUM....on the top floors of the SOOPER POWERZ building that has sh#t that spins you around and tips you upside down and rolls you around that's supposed to help you build up all these cohorts of your five senses.

I've seen pictures of one of the rooms with some equipment or a computer-enhanced drawing of it somewhere.

Do you remember all the tests they made the would-be astrounauts go through in "The Right Stuff"? That's kinda like the kind of shizz I've seen.

What a bunch of bullsh#t from the world's foremost long con.

Are they gonna give all the would-be OTs high colonics on the first floor and see if they can make it, bowls a-burstin' to the fourth floor bathrooms before they crap out their rice cakes and niacin? I lurved that movie....ahh...good times....good times.....but I digress!

Ladles and Jellyspoons, prepare for your perceptics to be blown away! Here is FIRST the OT X ScienTOOLoSTOOGE:

When I was in, the pre-requisites for OT 9 and 10 were Class VI auditor, or Class V Grad (both I believe around 50K, I think. I never was on reg lines so I dont know prices).
My story in a nutshell: Born into Scn, raised in the SO. Trained to Class VI (SHSBC) Golden Age of Tech, OT V, Supervisor. Sea Org for 17 years. SP declared.

I'mglib. I kind of equate $cientology with the ad,s that TIDE laundry detergent has been running since i was a child. TIDE, NEW and IMPROVED. After 40 odd years it would seem to me that TIDE would be able to do the frackin laundry all by itself. The same with $cientology. Since i worked on a cult film back in 1990. Every year, new Hubbard writing are found, new courses, ex-cetera, ex-cetera, ex-cetera! $cientology is the best damn corporate scam i have ever witnessed in my entire life, and that say's something. Why? Cuzz i work within one of the biggest scam's in America, that being the entertainment industry.

Lets see in the other levels they've been ejecting BTs from most areas of the body already so

OT IX - masturbating them BTs out of that special area (sounds like a level some may never leave)

OT X - pulling them BTs outta your ass (same place they got these two new levels to scam people on)

Will the BS ever cease! :roll:
