So I'm about to turn 36, I'm unemployed and don't know what I'd like to do 
for a job, so I turn to my Jandek cds and think; make a
definitive Jandek sampler. And so, I did. And after painsakingly combing over 
each album and my choices, here's what I would
choose. I know it won't please everyone though. It's 5 cds long (one being a 
double cd) & I picked at least 2 songs from each
album (3 or 4 from my favorites) on the first 3 volumes, and only one from each album on the 4th volume. 
The titles look like birth & death years. I figure
each cover could have a different shaped head stone with the title on each
