There's two things I look at when I go to someone's house (No, I don't just dart to their shelves... It's just one of those things that catch my eyes when I'm waiting for something...): their books and their record collection. They seem to say a lot about a person, their likes, their dislikes, their serious side, their funny side... and it gives you a pretty good idea for when it is present time!

A simple e-mail message sent to the staff got back responses varying from the classical to the classics to... well, what you'd never figure them for!

Here it is, another insight of the skew staff, in no specific order and scrambled to see if anyone can guess (no fair poking through home pages!)
