      1. Actually, I’ve got another proposal: when we’ve all made our way through this, how about a release emphasizing, say, optimism (not misplaced, one would hope). Suggested opening track: “Here Comes The Sun”, penned by one of my personal musical heroes…


  2. One of those sequels, like The Empire Strikes Back / The Dark Knight / The Godfather II, that’s on par, if not superior, to the original!

  3. I want to think all these titles come from your personal vinyl collection but I am having trouble buying the Korn, and I guess I would need visual proof of the Eric Carmen and the Peggy Lee.
