13. You also have at least a few cds that cost a hell of a lot more than $5, bought as imports when the Aussie dollar was a bit lower than it is now.

14. After the first few seconds of listening to a blues guitar riff on above cds, no longer cared how much they cost.

Love it! Yes

15. After coming back from Bluesfest, your music collection has grown somewhat
16. Whenever you see a Flying V in the hands of some thrash metal dude, you think "Man, string that thing up-side down and give it back to Albert".

17. You're watching House on TV one night and then the closing guitar riff sends you straight to Google searching "what was that guitar tune on House tonight?". Next thing you know, you're listening to Maggot Brain. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAkW9I63b8M

20 You still pine for your old record collection you had 30 years ago but had to sell back then so you could afford to eat and you know you'll never ever be able to get them again.

21. Your baby leaves you or your mama took all your money and gave it to another man

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

B. Dylan

22. YOU KNOW THAT DJs ARE NOT REAL MUSICIANS

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

26. I was walking in the front your man was walking out the back door

Trumpet bells ringing
Bass drum is swinging
As the trombone groans
And the big horn moans
