A. I had a dream where i was made fun of for calling these things records instead of albums or CDs. Screw that. To me, they're records. I bought many of these o record and many are available on record to this day.

B. I amy not think of 20 just now. Check back throughout the day for more details and/or changing of my mind. I have not given this much thought.

C. Honest. I'm trying to philosophically move past this odd High Fidelity/VH1 listing mentality that seems to have drowned my very generation like a pop-tsunami. However, I want to prove that I'm a team player and so...(oh yeah, these are just records that GRABBED me for a time and shook me up. They are not always the BEST records, they just meant more to me than say, OK Computer or The Joshua Tree or It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back or Enter the 36 Chambers)....
