favorite villain?

Here's a question for you all...what's your favorite villain character from any medium (movie, TV show, even cartoon if you'd like), and why?

There are some relatively obvious choices here, but I'll go with one that's just a little unconventional: Warden Norton from The Shawshank Redemption. There's just something completely sinister about the way he looks at Andy after Andy's been in "the hole" for a month, and gets that "I hold your life in my hands, and you know it" look in his eyes. "Am I making myself clear? Or am I being obtuse?" Just another reason it's my favorite movie.

Although I'm really tempted to choose (if only for the name) "The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs at Midnight" from The Tick.

Quick poll

This is just one of those random things I think about (and maybe you have at one point in your life too).

Think of your CD collection. Got it? Okay. Now of the CDs that you have, here's the question...if you could only listen to one track number off of each CD, what number would it be?

This means you can only listen to track #1 on each CD, or only #2, etc. Obviously, you want to pick the track that has the most songs that you like. And so that leads to the question of which track on a CD generally has the best songs.

My choice? In my collection, I'd have to say number 3, but 7's close. What do you think and why?
