No such thing exists. I was giving an opinion on one particular piece of "art" that I find pretentious. You have done the same.

If you prefer, I can accuse her of faking the funk.


What Michael said was quite funny.

Something about your response made it far funnier.

Well I surely knew you'd show up in due time. And I will admit I can have a way with a certain, shall we say, defensive posture.

Happy to amuse.

Noddy Holder - Brummie Foghorn gobshite. One trick pony.
Ian Curtis - Sums up the North in one miserable whining package.
Aretha Franklin - M25 background driving music.
Alan Vega - The endless search for a tune. Not big or clever.
Stevie Nicks - Reprehensible mellifluous shagnasty.
Joe Strummer - I had a glass of cider with him once, couldn’t wait to get away.
Sky Saxon - Drug-addled nonsensical nobhead.
Roger Waters - unworthy of any opinion.
Carole King - Blandly bland
Johnny Thunders - Talentless poppinjay
Fats Domino - Listenable, at least
Randy Newman - Too clever in his own mind, insufferable prick for the rest of us.
Lydia Lunch - I like the idea, the reality is unlistenable tosh
Todd Rundgren - A Wizard, A True Star, A towering Twat.
Diana Ross - Preening schmaltz, Chic made her sound great.
Wilson Pickett - 5th division sub James Brown tribute.
Ray Manzerak - plinky plonky bontempi virtuoso better enjoyed in airport lounges. In Albania.
Kevin Ayers - Twee wanker
Billy Fury - not as edgy as Cliff
Debbie Harry - one mans talentless chancer, another’s hip hop godhead. You decide.
Ginger Baker- One man cuntstorm.
James Murphy - why?
Roky Erickson - execrable arsehat.
Phil Spector - I like his work.
Annie Lennox - the very definition of wailing harpie.
Rod Stewart- hard to dislike but I’ll give it a good go.
Adam Ant- preposterous jackanapes
Bob Mould - I used to love him, it’s all over now.

By that I assume you like quite a few of them.

Which takes my blessedness to levels previously considered unachievable

Don't stop the magic.

These comedic tropes exist for a reason - surely my own darkest mirth-making moments have all derived from a similar self-seriousness.
