How many total albums do you own (CDs, vinyl, cassettes, 8-tracks)?

Do you download music, and if so, legally or illegally?

No funeral, please--how about the sound of critters crunching my bones? Ha!

Musically speaking, what do you love that your friends don't know about? What's your favorite guilty pleasure?

Shakira, and Jose Saavedra Iguina.

Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?

John Lydon, Psycho's Path suits me to a tee.
