Just travelin' thru / Oscars

I don't usually shill for Apple, but if you enjoyed Dolly Parton's performance of "Travelin' Thru" (from the Transamerica soundtrack) at the Oscars Sunday night, you can get your free download on iTunes.

King Kong got several technical awards. It was nominated in the categories of Art Direction, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, and Visual Effects. (They won the latter three). Being a sound guy, I'm especially proud of them winning the sound awards.

Congratulations to Peter Jackson, Joe Letteri, Brian Van't Hul, Christian Rivers and Richard Taylor, Christopher Boyes, Michael Semanick, Michael Hedges and Hammond Peek, Mike Hopkins and Ethan Van der Ryn, and all of WETA Workshop! Let's hope this is just a warm-up to a screen version of the Hobbit.
