I bid you welcome, Haulin Oats.
It's quite a story you have. I'm lucky that I've never had to throw out music, though admittedly, I never chose much of anything that would've gotten me into hot water. It's only in the past three or so years that I've started finding music I really liked, regardless of what other ppl might think. What I like to listen to would shock a lot of good ol' x-ian folks out there. LOL!
I live up here in British Columbia, Canada; practically right on top of ya. There are actually a good handful of us BCers here on JWN. Just come up north of the 49th and say 'hey'.
