1. Which album are you most likely to listen to when feeling depressed?
02. Which album are you most likely to listen to when feeling high?
03. Which album have you liked the longest?
04. Which album have you liked the shortest?
05. If you had to throw one album away, which one would you pick?
This is a dumb question. None. Why would I throw any of these away? Have we met? Do you know how many cds I have both physically and digitally?
06. If you had to offer one album to a friend, which one would you pick?
Probably #9 right now because I'm way back into Jens after hearing the new single.
07. Which album have you listened to the most?
It's probably between Patton and Martha. 2005 was the year of Patton and Martha and maybe Ron. I was driving a car with a CD player for a couple months and these got a load of rotation.
08. Which album have you listened to the least?
I feel like it's Maria Bamford and I can't even really believe it's in my top 10 albums, not that it's bad but I know I haven't listened to it that much. Maybe it's the brevity of the tracks.
09. Which album would you listen to to make you feel better if you were down?
Definitely Patton. The new CD is good too!

Probably all of them.

"The finger of blame has turned upon itself
And I'm more than willing to offer myself
Do you want my presence or need my help
Who knows where that might lead"
It's a comedy album...and Patton is quotable and I just can't think...wow, that's way too dirty and I can't remember it word for word, sorry folks.
