    I’ve always liked what I like, most often without letting (juvenile?) “quasi-political/sociological caring or bourgeois issues” cloud matters.
    Bland dinner party status? Change your circle of friends!!!
    Repackaged, boiled and forced? Avoid!!!
    Or at least ignore…
    Zep, Stones & Floyd are always loud and terrific at solving the bland conversation problem – you simply can’t hear it.
    Here’s to another equally successful 23 years of chain-busting, though it’s better if you can do it in 5 minutes.
    Tip – Avoid critics and try not to become one (too late with this one?).
