James Horner

I just got the news today that composer James Horner has died in a plane accident.

James Horner was one of the world's most wonderful musicians. He created some of the most powerful and emotional movie scores ever made. Below are three of my favorite tracks that he composed. I did not know this man, but his music touched me and inspired me deeply. It is a great loss that he won't be able to compose any more, but I know he will live on through his magical work.

I really, really, really, really, really want to go to Marfa, TX. It's calling my name. Maybe because it's artsy or maybe because there's a hotel that has old typewriters as amenities and unlimited paper or maybe because you can see the stars so well at night or maybe because there are unexplained lights at night in the sky or maybe because it's about as far away from the big city as you could possibly get... Or maybe it's all of the above. I want to go!
