Things you don't get

Recommended Posts

Missus was listening to some Bruce Springsteen. While I just about managed to refrain from slapping her senseless, it got me thinking about stuff I just don''t get the appeal of.

  • The Boss
  • Country & Western
  • Cream cakes
  • F1
  • Bungee jumping
  • Avocados
  • Bagpipes
  • Chopsticks
  • Pet lizards
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger

Just don't get that either.

I do like Country and Western, Bluegrass and Jazz though.

I get Bruce Springsteen, love his music, but I don't consider him the new Messiah. I think he merely expresses the hope of two generations left behind by the march to globalisation. Plus he really spoke to the horny, teenage male (if only I had understood at the time...).

Country music is a broad church, much of which I acknowledge.

The rest can fuck off.

To add, bungee-jumping is really fucking silly.

Surprising, what with you being a musician and all. Although to be fair, quite a lot of his stuff is pretty meh. You should probably hear The Wild The Innocent And The E Street Shuffle (second album - before he got famous) before dismissing him completely.

Humour me and listen to a bit of this:

Keith and Julie Tippett, and any similar contemporary jazz

Trainers as day to day shoes

Any clothing wth a designer  'label'

Chinese take aways - it's just slimy goo

Champagne

Hoodies

Cars, other than a vehicle to get from A to B

Stand Up Paddle boarding

Any sunglasses that aren't polarising

Pangassius, farmed salmon and trout, bright yellow smoked fish.

The list could be endless
