With the release of the final “Hobbit” movie, I thought it was time to have Doug Adams on one more time! Always great to talk with the author of “The Music of Lord of the Rings” to get his insight into the mind of composer Howard Shore and the amazing music that filled both trilogies.  We also talk about the “Lord of the Rings Live” concerts coming up in April in New York City…if you’re anywhere near when one of these concerts is playing, you MUST make the effort to see them.  It’s a truly moving and incredible experience.  Learn more about Doug and his work right here!

Then, the great Lucas Turnbloom (“Imagine This”) and I talk about how music affects how artists work.  When do you listen to music? What types? How does it change your mood? How about listening to a movie over at Listen to a Movie?

All this and another informative “Lemon List” from Jonathan Lemon of “Rabbits Against Magic.”  Find out about the only comics to ever run in the venerable New York Times!
