Reverted Waltons link.Edit

Hi Jg...just wanted to let you know I reverted the recent change you made to The Waltons. The attempt to link The Homecoming wasn't working, as it simply redirects right back to the main Waltons article. If in the future someone creates a Wiki for The Homecoming then we can reinstate the link brackets and it should work fine. Have a great Wiki kinda day! Sector001 (talk) 01:04, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Small Soldiers soundtrack/Jerry GoldsmithEdit

Regarding these pages, it appears that it's the same user that has been almost exclusively been deleting information regarding Small Soldiers. They've also deleted the human cast from the film's page time and time again. Talk page messages to the user do nothing as they have no problem other users' talk page messages and even an incident report on an Administrator noticeboard. I'm not sure what their deal is, but short of requesting indefinite semi-protection for these articles, it's best to just keep watching and reverting. Thanks for the help. --Jtalledo (talk) 21:37, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

30 Rock season 7 recolourEdit

Hey. I recoloured the 30 Rock (season 7) page to my closest approximation of the DVD box art, using the Wiki colour chart. I think it's pretty accurate, but I wondered: is there a more accurate way of matching up the colour, or is it just done like I have done it? One Among Many (talk) 23:51, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

I think that's as close as it will look (see seasons 4, 5, and 6), but it's a spectacular job! As soon as the DVD is released in May I'll begin touching up some of the middle season 7 articles that currently have some pretty underwhelming literature, too. Jg2904 (talk) 04:49, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. Yeah, some of those middle season 7 articles need work. I might go back and see if I can improve some of the season 5 and 6 articles that aren't very detailed, at some point, too. One Among Many (talk) 15:03, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Adams Chamber Symphony editsEdit

Thank you for your cleanup at the article and your edit summary. I reverted your edit since I believe that the italicized titles are in accordance with the Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Music#Classical_music_titles; John Adams refers to his (and Stravinsky's) work with italics in his program notes published on the publisher's website. I believe this conforms to the examples where "instances where a work has what appears to be a generic title but is actually a true title" like Copland's Dance Symphony. Could you please clarify whether the titles should be italicized? Fern 24 (talk) 10:29, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Fern 24. I'll defer to your interpretation of the Manual of Style, though I am on the fence as to whether Adams' own italicization of the work (and of Schoenberg's) should be the basis as to whether it's a true title or not. It's such a specific English rule that I wonder if he (or the guys at Boosey, or their webmaster) has given much thought to it. But if the title is to be in italics, they need to be added to the article title as well. Jg2904 (talk) 11:00, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
You're right. I added italics to the title but removed italics from the Schoenberg piece to conform to the formatting on Chamber Symphony No. 1. Fern 24 (talk) 11:12, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

PreciousEdit

Darkstar and recent concertos
Thank you, Jerry, for gems of articles, beginning with Darkstar: The Interactive Movie, then films such as Thou Wast Mild and Lovely, for teaching by (always diligent) edit summary and historic connection, and for pointing at concert music of the 20th and 21st centuries which would stay unknown without you, even a viola concerto ;) - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

--Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:37, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Gerda Arendt! I'm not sure they're all gems, but I certainly appreciate the honor. And if I do have any civility or diligence on here, I owe it all to the continued courtesy and forbearance of users such as yourself. Thanks again! Jg2904 (talk) 09:01, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
Too much honor for, - I believe that you "owe" the largest part of civility and diligence to yourself! - How do you like my latest composition article? - on 3 June 2012 we sang music in concert from the 20th and 21st century, did you know? - Any sourced article longer than 1.500 characters of prose (not counting tables and lists) and not older than a week is good for DYK, btw. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:08, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
I made a nomination for the Percussion Concerto No. 2 (MacMillan), feel free to suggest a better "hook" and comment, or just watch. How do you feel about adding an infobox to the article, example pictured, or this? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:07, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks again for the good marks; I think you picked a good tidbit. In regards to your second point, I admittedly don't make much of an effort to dress the articles I create, so there is probably incentive for the addition of pictures on an article by article basis. I am a stickler for uniformity though, so if I add an infobox to one article I'd be inclined to add them to the rest, too. Do you think it's something that should be done? Jg2904 (talk) 18:15, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
I think that's something that should be done but am hated for it ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:05, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
You'll get no hate here! I generally defer to senior editors on style anyway, so consider it something I'll look into over the next few days. Jg2904 (talk) 19:19, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Thank you ;) - Starting something new, you never have consistency at first. Editors who consistently add infoboxes to composition articles are Meneerke bloem (Bruckner, certainly senior), Ron Oliver (Berio and other 20th century) and Sgvrfjs (Sibelius, see thoughts at Talk:The Oceanides), - many composition articles on GA and FA level have one, - it's a little extra service to readers, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:52, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

A year ago, you were recipient no. 1228 of Precious, a prize of QAI! - I keep adding the little service to readers, one a day, at the moment Rossini's operas, such as Otello, - working on his last at the moment ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:01, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

I'm admittedly quite ignorant of Italian opera (I started with Wagner, which I was later told is a big no-no for opera novices), but an article of that quality only makes me want to learn more. Thanks for your persistence in making Wikipedia a finer encyclopedia and a better community! Jg2904 (talk) 07:17, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
I began one article on Wagner opera, didn't write Otello, only added the infobox, and want to still improve Rossini's "last mortal sin", going to sing it (again, in choir, one of three altos which is a challenge) in about a week ;) - Persistence (but still not enough) shown here (back to Wagner), and here (enough) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:31, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
Two years now, and I had a recent Wagner experience, when he stepped in as Siegmund, the master of stepping in ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:05, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

Britten's 3rd quartetEdit

TY for the smiley! As usual: after searching, drafting, brooding over the article for a week or two, adding one final tweak, and finally posting – within hours I fell across two new, good citations which needed adding...

No. 2 underway, No. 1 and the unnumbered D major on my to-do list. Narky Blert (talk) 00:58, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Don't you hate it when that happens? Anyway, keep up the good work; I'm just happy to see there's someone besides me churning out articles on classical compositions! Jg2904 (talk) 01:06, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Writer's Barnstar
Someone mentioned Silent Spring (composition) to me, and I was surprised to find we had such a thoughtful article on it. Lo and behold, the author has contributed hundreds of the same quality! Here's for your extraordinary efforts. FourViolas (talk) 02:33, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, FourViolas! I'm just happy to know that someone is reading them. Incidentally, I hope your namesake project for four violas turned out superb. Jg2904 (talk) 05:08, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 18Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Night Fantasies, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Magnum opus.

Please review my mergerEdit

Dear Jg2904,

After receiving consensus among interested prior editors I completed the merger. Since I am a nooby to editing wikipedia, please [review my changes].

Thank you for your time, 24.21.215.155 (talk) 22:40, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of File:Darkstar soundtrack.jpgEdit

 

The file File:Darkstar soundtrack.jpg has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-free album cover being used in a decorative manner in Darkstar: The Interactive Movie#Soundtrack. Non-free album cover art is generally allowed to be used for primary identification purposes in stand-alone articles about albums, but its use in other articles is generally only allowed when the cover art itself is the subject of sourced critical commentary as explained in WP:NFC#cite_note-3 and the context for non-free use required by WP:NFCC#8 is evident. There is no such commentary for this particular album cover anywhere in the article, and the use of soundtrack album cover art in articles about films or TV programs is generally not allowed for this reason as explained in WP:FILMSCORE.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and files for discussion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:15, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Jerry Goldsmith as a child.jpgEdit

 

A tag has been placed on File:Jerry Goldsmith as a child.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the file appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use it — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Creating an article for Les Espaces du SommeilEdit

Dear Jerry,
I am currently working on the article about Robert Desnos, and just noticed that you kindly created an article (October 2016) about Lutoslawski's composition for Chantefleurs et Chantefables. I am wondering whether you would mind that I re-use the structure of your article to create a new one about Les Espaces du sommeil, as both pieces were recorded and reviewed together; this would also enable me to benefit from your sources. Of course, if you were to object, or if this effort is currently on your list-of-things-to-do-one-day, then I'd obviously refrain from proceeding with this idea. Thank you for your consideration, and for letting me know of your intent. With kind regards; Patrick. ツ Pdebee.(talk)(guestbook) 15:12, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Pdebee, my name's not actually Jerry; the user name is merely a tribute to the composer Jerry Goldsmith. And of course! I could never have grown as an editor if I didn't liberally pilfer the style of other editors myself. Cheers! Jg2904 (talk) 20:01, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Oh, I see! (Silly meee!...  ). OK; thanks for your blessing and, of course, for leading the way with completing the first of these two related pieces. With kind regards; Patrick. ツ Pdebee.(talk)(guestbook) 21:51, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Looks smashing, Pdebee! Keep up the good work. Jg2904 (talk) 19:43, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
Well, all credit to you, since it was your example that encouraged me to create its twinned version for Lutoslawski's 1975 work. So, thank you once again for making that possible, and for your support.
With kind regards; Patrick. ツ Pdebee.(talk)(guestbook) 23:03, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
