I can’t tell you what it is.
I can tell you what it’s not.
We’re not getting a pet dinosaur for the office. We’re not naming him Esteban and we’re not feeding him a balanced diet of cherry trees and small buildings, and we’re not ordering him a hot pink leash for our daily walks through Central Park.
That’s not happening.
But if you’re really good, we’ll tell you what is happening in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
Folks, we HOBOs like to be creative. That’s just a fact, and music is no exception. HOBO composes the freshest music for commercials, for TV shows, for films, and for you! Because of the industry’s wide range of musical demands, we’re versatile in many musical styles and genres. Take a listen, won’t you?
After five years here at Hobo, engineer extraordinaire Julienne Guffain is moving onward. She’s not moving far away, but we’ll still miss having her in the office every day! We’re so proud of everything Julienne has done and will do with her career. Once a Hobo, always a Hobo.
The staff would like to take this opportunity to say their goodbyes.
Julienne has been an outstanding employee here at HOBO. We’ve had many great times both professionally and socially, and it’s been a personal pleasure to watch her mature as an engineer. So, before another ICE gets chugged, we want to wish her the best on her new adventure. I’m confident she will do well wherever she applies her skills.
As the now only remaining female in the office, I will certainly miss Julienne! I will miss her effortless bohemian-chic style, her never-ending quest to educate me in all ways news and politics and especially her sensational RockBand singing talents. I will even miss the countless cat and rat videos sent to me throughout the day. I wish her all the luck in the world and hope she some day gets to meet her life long celebrity crush: grumpy cat.
It goes without saying that we will all miss Julienne beyond words here at Hobo. I think each one of us is proud of the fact that Hobo is like another family to all of us. She has grown with us for almost 5 years, and that is not a relationship that gets forgotten so easily. She has so much talent and a very unique energy that allows her to really fit in with every person that meets her. I will probably miss our annual stay-late-and-play-dj-and-get-
But I won’t miss her cats. I’m a dog person and my dog stories would eat her cat stories any day. Bring it. :)
Besides being a great audio engineer, I’ve come to admire the fact that Julienne always orders red clam sauce instead of white. And then makes it extra spicy! Thats bold and respectable. Just like her audio work. She’ll certainly be missed around Hobo. But maybe not those weird cat noises she makes when watching cat videos on youtube. Its been real fun crushin’ the 0′s & 1′s with you! #KTHXBYE
Not often in life do you get the opportunity to work in a family environment. Since I started at Hobo, I have that feeling, and Julienne has been a big part of it. I have to thank Julienne not only for being a friend and always having a smile but for all she taught me during my journey at Hobo. I truly wish her the best of the world in this new step she’s taking. Best of luck J!!
Julienne, we won’t be the same without you. We hope you left at least half of your personal belongings in the office–that way you’ll have to come see us soon. Thanks for five wonderful years!
I like forcing my friends to watch/ begrudgingly fall in love with my favorite TV shows. It’s one of my top five hobbies. So yes, I did just introduce a friend to Alias last month, and yes, she’s hooked. But something just doesn’t sound right.
Netflix apparently had to change much of the show’s soundtrack due to licensing costs. I know it’s part of the business, but it’s also killing me slowly, because what are these moments without their music? Sound is like the weather–it sets the whole tone. This is like waking up on Christmas morning and finding out that it’s actually 90 degrees outside. Everyone keeps telling you that it’s still Christmas, but it doesn’t feel like it. (Growing up in Florida has given me personal experience in this area.)
But as a new hobo, I’m also glad to know that sound MATTERS. All of those noises and voiceovers and musical interludes come together to change how we experience what we watch. Now that some of my favorite songs have gone missing, I’m a lot more aware of what they lend a scene (because yes, I’ve watched this show enough to know exactly what music belongs where. No regrets). I’m a lot happier for the plucky little songs that managed to stick around. And I’ve definitely developed a new appreciation for Michael Giacchino’s original score, which, for the record, is genius. Check it out if you’re aching to feel stealthy and international.
So next time you turn on your favorite show or movie, take a minute to really listen. Appreciate everyone who made it happen, because you might never hear it like that again.
