  • 10/29/00 I've been out of touch with the other Boingo sites around, and Michael Sutor pointed me to the Boingo Graveyard. Wow! He's got an awesome MP3 collection there. It's the sort of thing I was hoping to get to, but now I don't have to! :-)

I have to admit, I gave up after about 15 seconds thinking it was a Depeche Mode rip off band, but if you listen longer, you can definitely tell it's Boingo. Breese says "ALL TO PIECES is indeed Boingo, from the 1983 sessions for GOOD FOR YOUR SOUL, the band was experimenting with synthesizers and while the song sounds very different it is 100% boingo."

  • 10/3/00 Tim Burton's Stainboy is now on, featuring music by Danny Elfman.
  • 9/16/00 Got my Edward Scissorhands DVD. The commentary was pretty interesting. It has all of the music during the movie, and then Danny speaks when there's no music. It looks like there's also a Pee-Wee's Big Adventure DVD with a similar commentary. I guess I have to order that one too :-)
  • 9/9/00 Special Edition of Nightmare Before Christmas will be out in October. I love the special edition Laserdisc. You can also get a bundle with James and the Giant Peach.
  • 9/9/00 Edward Scissorhands: 10th anniversary edition is now available, including a running commentary by Danny Elfman!
