    How many CDs / Records do you own?

    I'd say around 200 CDs and records. I buy a whole lot of downloads, however, from Amazon MP3 and such.

    Is there an MFSL of any of the Elvis Costello albums?

    Why do public these days always flock to the worser player (piano)

    I just looked this guy up on YouTube, and.... wow. His performances are so ho-hum. No variety whatsoever. "Bang Bang" certainly is accurate - I played like that when I was 10.

    I finally "got" Ellliott Smith. Ever happen for you that way? With what musicians?

    multiplication before addition

    Quote: Originally Posted by Arainach Having 5^-2 = -25 makes no sense; it's 0.2 because we process the - first. The - is processed first because it's in the exponent. And when all else fails: ps: I don't argue that -x doesn't always equal -1*x in some algebraic...

    I've never been a fan of the actual taste of jalapeño. They're okay, but I prefer habaneros.
