Ok, here's my last question: What are all these posters (including the Pastor) who agree with this load of crap even DOING on a website about film music??? I personally don't enjoy eating flaming monkey flesh straight from the bone....but I'm certainly not going to go to websites that share those recipes and start calling all the people there evil. I simply avoid going to those websites. It just doesn't make any sense where all these people are really coming from and why they're here on this site if it bothers them so much.

Maybe they've come to save my soul!!!! Whew....After reading three hours of that uninsightful email, I've certainly changed MY mind. Thank you SOOOO much for posting -- it's changed my life!!! Anyone want to take my almost-700 film score collection off my hands????

(yes, it's me responding to my own post)

> Wow! I actually took the time to read this entire post. And I have to say

> To start quoting Bible verses that supposedly prove that film music (of

> With all of the important issues in this world, film music should be the

*the car you drove to church

*baseball games

*the 4th of July (in America)
*Martin Luther King Day

*Veterans Day
*the Iraq War
*the price of milk
*airplane

*advertising

Honestly, hardly
