5, not counting individual songs I have in my iTunes.



The Monks of Cool, whose tiny and exclusive monastery
is hidden in a really cool and laid-back valley in the lower
Ramtops, have a passing-out test for a novice. He is taken
into a room full of all types of clothing and asked: Yo¹, my
son, which of these is the most stylish thing to wear? And
the correct answer is: Hey, whatever I select.

¹ Cool, but not necessarily up to date.

Terry Pratchett, "Lords and Ladies", 1992

I have 21 of them on LP and 22 on CD...

Ken, I have the utmost admiration for anyone who quotes Pratchett!

I don't have any of these. Where does that leave me? I guess I'm hot.

I own 10 of these cd's however I can't remember the last time they were actually listened to. They have obviously been replaced by newer cool albums smile

I have 16. My numbers could have hit 21 if I hadn't thrown out all my cassettes.

11.

I think that's the cutoff of being considered cool. I just made it.

Still, though, I might stop returning PMs from some of you less-cool people.

Don't you know that being uncool is what makes you cool?

I don't know what you're talking about with a "brain trust".

I founded a "Cool Trust" a few years ago, but I guess you wouldn't know about it, would you?

Oops. I probably should also have not mentioned the meeting I had with MI6 yesterday.
