    I wouldn't call it avant garde. It seems like he has succeeded in recreating classic jazz era film scores as it states in the dsscription. I think it's one of the more interesting things I've heard from Williams in a while.

    I think it cuts off because that was just the title sequence, of course. I'd like to look for this soundtrack. It's got a vaguely Bernard Hermann thing going on - or as if Hermann tried to mix classical with jazz. It also harks way back to the 60's when Williams was co-writing TV show themes such as The Time Tunnel (which I love -- the theme, that is).

    This is nowhere near avant-garde.

    The only way to stop it would be to make the minimum age for this forum 7 years old

    Actually both forms are correct and mean the same thing (dyslectic and dyslexic), derived form the noun dyslexia.

    Oh right. Maybe it's a British thing because I've never seen that spelling before, 'tis news to me.

    The point I was making is that it is Dy and not Di, That should have been clear and my other quote from the dictionary was to avoid any confusion. it really is not worth making a big deal out of it,
