Well... .... ....I mean, you know, okay, look. I was at 100, but then I remembered there was that one more album, and I asked myself, do I wanna go up to 101? Yes! But it needs to be a nice number then, what the hell is 101? Let's make it 110 - I have many others in mind anyway. Then I kept going until I was at 137. And I thought to myself "Man... I'm gonna look for 3 more throughout the darkest corners of my memory, because it has to end with a -0. And thus, we are now at 140, and I would say "c'est fini", but frankly I don't know if it is
