<p>so, i've been thinking about doing this for quite some time and i've been slowly putting it together over the past couple months. which means that i'm fairly sure i'm not forgetting glaringly obvious additions to the list. and yes, i know that i have two against me! records. well, eff you. i couldn't decide which i liked better. so they're a package deal in my book. they are in no particular order. and <em>EVERYONE</em> knows that top ten lists have 11 items. duh.</p>
