At first I thought Metallica's ReLoad might've been my first

or Brainpool's In a Box (lol)

or The Fat of the land by The Prodigy

...but then I remembered I only borrowed those from my older brother. He was into DJing (still is, but not as much as back then) and was always playing something different in his room, so I'd borrow stuff from him even before I had my own stereo/cd-player. When I did get my own stereo, I'm pretty sure this was the first CD I bought:

Gorillaz' self-titled debut album. Really liked it at the time, still a decent album.

hmm, may have to call my brother now :P

Alright, as one of the Senior Citizens of the group I feel I must chime in. I remember when CD's came out... my family couldn't really afford the player.I want to say I was either a sophemore or a junior in High school when I finally got a cd, and back then we had these deals by mail, where if you ordered 2 or 3 cds at full price you got 3 to 5 for a penny each (just pay shipping and handling) And from this I started my collection.

Now I d't know which one I ordered first, I want to say I got about a dozen or so to start. This is really taking me down memory lane. I do know I too had Dookie... but then again I bought Shaq's album called Shaq Diesel. I also remember Simon and Garfunkels greatest hits being in there too. I had a wide range of music to say the least.

Eric Clapton Unplugged = Awesome
U2 The Joshua Tree = Awesome

I used to do those Columbia House deals. They were kind of a ripoff in the long run.

Place I'd like most to visit wins...

I have kind of a hard time picking just one place.... Here's a few places near the top of my list

Hawaii - My wife & I really want to visit Pearl Harbor sometime. And I'd really like to go to the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. (I think it'd be fantastic to see an eruption or lava flow)

Australia/New Zealand - My sister has been in Australia for the last 3 years and it really bugs me I haven't been able to visit. Mount Sunday (the filming location for Edoras in Lord of the Rings) and Matamata (the filming location for The Shire & Hobbiton in Lord of the Rings) are must see places for me.

Colorado - We had a Colorado honeymoon planned but we moved our wedding up because of health concerns in my wife's family. Still haven't made it there... would like to soonish. Colorado is probably the first place I'll actually make it to on my list. I'd love to go to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Maybe rent a sorta secluded cabin for a few days.

Ireland - Everything I've seen of Ireland looks incredible. I'd especially want to see the famous coastlines and a castle or two. A visit to a pub with some Irish music would be a plus. And a U2 concert in Dublin would be the icing on the cake. If I really thought about it I'm sure there would be some Game of Thrones locations I'd love to visit. I think Ireland is my #1.

Honorable mentions... Alaska, Canada, New York City, Boston, San Diego, San Fransisco, Washington State/Seattle, Germany/Berlin, Costa Rica, Brazil, China, Japan

This was indeed harder than i thought it would be. But I think i'm gonna go with Scotland.
Spoiler: show


I wanna see what walking around mountains and fields with no trees is like. Plus there are castles.

I really want to walk around and explore an aircraft carrier. I think they are one of the most impressive man-made creations of the last century. A US aircraft carrier can even outclass the air forces of some smaller nations. That's pretty incredible. Here's a picture of the USS Enterprise CVN-65:
