Yeah...besides formatting issues from my spreadsheet I just thought the humblebrags could be interpreted as straight brags.   Plus my final entry was my 930 retro just shy of World's Fair -- so a good ending point for my entries.
Woulda be fun to keep it up for a year's cycle I guess...

I think I've revealed this before and been roundly mocked for it but the first CD I ever bought with my own money was Pocket Full of Kryptonite.

My first was YES 90125 but in 1986


An amazing sounding cd which sold me on the format…

This was a West German beautiful target  CD… I think I still have it but it’s scratched up to bits

I think I went to more concerts this year than any before, but I guess I didn't tell bandsintown about it. This kinda feels like they're trying to shame me.
