James Pizzinato in Alcatraz tonight, new interview with Bear McCreary & some space porn

James Pizzinato plays the prisoner of the week in Alcatraz tonight, in episode 1x06, "Paxton Petty."

The episode airs at 9 pm ET on Fox. Here is the synopsis:
Madsen, Soto and Hauser (Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia and Sam Neill) track a mad bomber (James Pizzinato) who is planting explosives throughout the city, targeting highly populated areas.

They're forced to apply methods from the past to their pursuit in the new episode "Paxton Petty." Robert Forster and Parminder Nagra also star.
Previews posted below.

The Nervous Breakdown has a new interview with Bear McCreary. Here are a few snippets (more at the link):
From what or whom do you derive your greatest inspiration?
My inspiration comes from so many different sources that it’s impossible to say. Ideas can come from just talking to someone or flipping through the radio. Ideas are the sum of everything on your mind at any given time. But, of the professionals in my industry whom I’ve been fortunate enough to know, the most influential on me personally was Elmer Bernstein.

Name three books that have impacted your life.
The Rest is Just Noise by Alex Ross really opened my eyes to the history of music in the 20th Century and why it evolved the way it did. The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller roped me into comic books in a big way. The musicians’ union phone book .… I randomly looked up a couple musicians in it who ended up working with me for years.

If you could relive one moment over and over again, what would it be?
Performing my Battlestar Galactica score live at the House of Blues in San Diego during Comic Con. That was euphoric.

List your favorite in the following categories: Comedian, Musician, Author, Actor.
I’m so indecisive, I don’t know if I could nail down a single favorite in any category at all. So, leaving room for multiple answers… favorite comedians are George Carlin, Louis CK and Dave Chappelle. Musicians include Freddie Mercury, Jerry Goldsmith, and Danny Elfman. Authors include music critic Alex Ross and fiction writer Laura Kalpakian. Actors… probably Jackie Chan, Sigourney Weaver, and Denzel Washington.

Bear has recently scored a time-lapse video created by Randy Halverson. For more info about what you are seeing in the clip, go to Vimeo. Here it is (discovered via Wired):
