Happy Monday!

If you don’t dream big, then your dreams will be medium or regular-sized.

Does that make sense? Well, it makes as much sense as…

The lesson?

Start dreaming big today, preferably like the Bruce Willis character in ‘Die Hard’ or Arnold Schwarzenegger in his classic action films, or like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson trying to imitate Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger with obvious remakes of old favorites.

AND also start and/or continue watching the new season of the funny cop sitcom ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ on Thursday, January 10 at–you guessed it–9 p.m. as it heroicly jumps to its new home on NBC with star Andy Samberg by its side.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

The Sound of Returning to Yellowstone

Movie and TV soundtracks are a musical art form reliant on imaginative pressure points and successful through emotional connection. Somewhere between the macro and the micro of the sound is the sweet spot of where we find ourselves between the intricately placed notes of the composer.

And in the case of the Paramount original series ‘Yellowstone,’ it’s composer Brian Tyler who has created a theme song as unique as the famed western escape.

For me, the ‘Yellowstone’ theme song draws me in by the past of Yellowstone yet I remain for the prospect of exploring a place like Prospector, Utah in the future.

Music Will Never Fall out of Favor With Us

Music is one of the most powerful forces in the world. The right song, lyrics, and sound can inspire us in ways that are–forgive me in advance–impossible to describe. And this motivational dynamic can occur instantaneously from hearing a quick, short succession of notes or words. We recall fond memories, tough times and/or are reminded of a dream we’re in pursuit of via a full, intensely determined sprint.

Ok, enough sneaky wordplay.

Here’s an extended version of the orchestral theme song from the recently released ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ that, like the film, adds spectacular accents that elevate the song to something bigger and better from the song’s simple yet defining origin.

So who wants to skydive HALO Jump into Paris?

First:

Go. 

See. 

Mission: Impossible – Fallout. 

Figure out a way to see this surreal–yet very real–action film that takes the franchise and genre to new heights with insane twists and turns.
