It shows up instantly to you if you're the one who uploaded it. But it won't show for anyone else until a mod approves it. That's when the automator posts.
So it goes...

I carted the Horkey, yesterday...I didn't go through with the sale, though. Don't think I've ever watched one of those movies all the way through.

Getting back to movie soundtracks - I like the sound track for this one. Across the Universe - Movie Trailer

Good stuff.

I definitely have to confess I haven't listened to a handful of the Mondo soundtracks I've purchased. The collectible aspect is what I think is really appealing to me. And the fact there's been a few for properties I really love. The Shaun of the Dead soundtrack never really stood out for me, but hot damn that Winchester Ale variant us purdy.

I think it's important to also differentiate a soundtrack from a score. Most of the Mondo records we've seen have primarily been the score, which is just the instrumental music. For Guardians of the Galaxy they used the recognizable songs from the soundtrack, rather than the instrumental music that was composed solely for the film. Not all movies have both. Star Wars, for instance, is just a score. I'm going to stop explaining this here for fear of coming off as TOO pretentious. And because I'm sure this is common knowledge to all of you.

Anyway, that's part of the reason I haven't listened to a lot of my Mondo vinyl. It's pretty much just passive, background music.

Coincidentally enough, that movie features a feather.

I'll disagree with you on passive (though admittedly, scores need to be taken on a case by case basis), but you say background like it's a bad thing. It's almost gotten to the point where I can't write if I don't have some score on.

Okay. That's fair. I listen to a lot of music, and for me if it doesn't have lyrics it usually becomes classified as background music. Which definitely isn't a bad thing, but just a less compelled. Once again, just my opinion. And I'll definitely agree this is on a case by case basis.

I'm guessing you don't really like classical music or jazz then... maybe you need to expand your musical horizons?!?
