Yes, there are plans for a B5 CD in the fall.

Lemme get this straight...you come on here, insult and slam Chris
Franke's music, accuse him of minor theft, fraud (by way of saying that
he is NOT using the orchestra that we're paying him to use), and being
talentless...and *then* you can actually come in here and demand to know
what label his CD is coming out on?

Screw you...wait in line like everybody else.

I didn't answer your first demand for information because I didn't
feel like it, and I don't have to. You repeated the demand, and I told
you to piss off. Lots of people here asked what *your* "credentials"
are in music...I don't see you responding to *their* requests, why the
hell should anyone honor yours?

There will be a mountain of publicity on all the B5 licensing that
will be coming out later this fall. The CD (as opposed to the CD Rom)
will be out in November, which is plenty of time yet for those who like
the music to find out.

So it's a question of waiting two weeks to inform the fans of the
show...or annoying you now in the present.

I opt for the latter.

I understand your concern; my sense is that, as a writer, my job is
to find the right word for the right job. I could describe a character
as "dumb," but somehow "breathtakingly stupid" just sounds better.

I could describe a car in a story as simply a car, or say that it's
a Mercedes 300E with silver finish and deep, plush seat linings.

I could tell someone to simply go away...or "piss off." And the
latter just tickles me a bit more.

The right word for the right job.

Once the CD is out, I'm sure it'll be able to be played anywhere,
including DJ'd stuff at cons. Go for it.
