lol you are nuts! Why would you not get rid of albums you could never get into?? Just sell it back to a used CD store and get something else!
I try to get rid of it, but it's stronger than me. I always end up in the used CD store without that album to sell.


And then I buy even more music.

Yeah, but CIB was the first one. I hadn't seen Beav being a copycat until later.

Now that answer is cracking!
Yeah, I understand that the tone's hard to pick up, but I'm pretty against using smileys except for the or every once and a while.

So cracking that it hurts.

BTW, 22 of the 100 albums made my Top 50.
And I have 56 of those 100 titles.

Not bad.

I wouldn't multiply by the number of lists that entered it that would be just way too much

Maybe multiply the total points by like a tenth of the total number of lists it was on.

Yeah, something like that is fine as long as it helps factor in list representation.

It's the balance that would be the hardest part to get right; too much or too little one way can change results dramatically

There's got to be something else to weigh the results down... not sure what though.

I'm a girl. And thanks,

Interesting to look at the gender breakdown of the voters. It seems to support the notion that list-making is a predominantly male obsession pretty well.

Saying Fox News is biased for conservatives is like saying Interference is biased for U2 albums. Which is just crazy talk.
