The obvious bank-balance draining, ear-shredding, friend-losing music obsessive stuff. Used to drink alcohol back in the days when my bank allowed me to extract money from them. But not beer. It tastes too much like bread. And why would anyone want to drink bread? Also partial to semi-peeved politiking of the left-wing variety, and reading poets who write about death and drinking and being rubbish with women. Somehow got dragged in to this writing-about-music lark by people who have better record collections than me, and now spend copious amounts of time shoving my opinions in the faces of people who don't want to hear them. Sorry about that...
