When I was maybe 10 and I first got a walkmen, I stole one CD from my parents for a road trip. It was Blonde on Blonde, I must have listened to it 100 times on that trip. Memphis Blues was my favorite.

I'll give it a try:

1. Blood On The Tracks
2. Highway 61 Revisited
3. Blonde on Blonde
4. Another Side Of Bob Dylan (madly underrated, in my opinion)
5. Desire

Honorable mention for New Morning, his most underrated record.

top 5 driving pet peeves

1. PEOPLE WHO DO NOT SEIZE UNPROTECTED LEFT TURN OPPORTUNITIES IN A TIMELY FASHION
2. people who zoom by you in the far right lane even when it says "THROUGH TRAFFIC MERGE LEFT" and then push their way in at the front
3. people who block intersections
4. people who slow down ridiculously to get into a left turn lane
5. people who park on the side of the road and then open their door ALL THE WAY

honorable mentions:

1. people who do not observe zipper merging and tailgate the person in front of them to box you out
2. bad parkers
3. people who drive slow in the left lane on a 2-lane road/highway (especially if they are an SUV and you're stuck behind them for ages, and then they finally switch right and you realize how slow you've been forced to go because you can't even see anyone in front of them for miles)

Interesting list, I would personally not include Filippa K (their menswear is so incredibly boring) or Han Kjøbenhavn. Mine would probably be something like:

1. Acne
2. Obscur
3. Carin Wester
4. OL
5. Henrik Vibskov

Honorable mentions:

1. Common
2. Hope
3. V Ave Shoe Repair

Filippa K is the very definition of OK. Good basics, occasionally interesting but not out there pieces, reasonable prices, reasonable quality. I think they're overpriced at full retail but on sale they're good to hit up for real. I like 'them.

None of that necessarily means a position in the Top 5 Scandinavian Brands though.
