The Greatest Album Ever?

I don't know the answer to my own question!! What I do know is that this album proved that the Clash could do ANY style of music and do it better than ANYONE else. There was a reason people called them "the only band that matters."

Political Compass Test

Want to see where you fit in the political world? Go to

I am center-left (almost equally) on economics and politically I am about 75% closer to being a libertarian than an authoritarian.

Things I'd like to do before I die...

...not that I plan on doing it any time soon.
  • Learn Scots-Gaelic
  • Travel to the South Pacific
  • Climb a mountain over 10,000 feet
  • Get a book published
  • Buy a custom-made suit
  • Live overseas
  • Sleep for 24 straight hours
  • Own a Nokona baseball glove
...there are probably other things, but that's enough for now- I don't want to appear too greedy or ambitious!

Top Six Things I'm Good At

1. Trivia: And I'm not humble about it either..."bad winner."
2. Soccer: Playing or coaching.
3. Seeing: I have better than 20/20 vision in both eyes.
4. Teaching: Not that I don't have bad days, but not many.
5. Cooking: I've only ever received compliments.
6. Writing: Fiction or fact.

Top Eight Things I'm No Good At

Not really in order, just as they came to mind...

1. Math: I can add and subtract, but after that...
2. Swimming: I can, just not well at all.
3. Being "social": Not surprising as I don't like people.
4. Taking care of myself: physically or mentally.
5. Relationships: Though, at the moment, I'm trying to break the cycle.
6. Chess: WAY too many things to remember.
7. Trying new things: Some have even said I'm "picky".
8. Drawing: But I still got A's in art class because I "tried"!
