First of all I don't even know if I'm doing this right so if I'm not please forgive me. Second of all I agree with most of what you said, esspecially the part on how the music won't really be good anywhere else except the movie. Actully you know what scrach that last comment, after reading it a second time I understand more what you are trying to say and I agree completly. Also I didn't say that because of reasons you might think though . ttyl Tim.
