Funny how the advancing years affect you, and I ain't talking about bowel control. I'm sure you've heard enough about the goings on in my guts lately. They're still exploding, y'know - but it's more to do with the usual things like blind panic when there's tax to settle, or old scores, rather than any real medical worries at the moment. A camera up my arse at 32 - it's all downhill from here.

Anyroad, it's strange how when you get older, the things you used to really detest in life, actually don't seem too bad - or now you actually enjoy 'em.

I remember in the mid 80s watching Dire Straits become the biggest band in the world, if only for a month or two, and thinking 'If ever I get my hands on those Geordie wassocks, I'll throttle 'em purple with their bloody headbands. They're shit, they are.'
But once you hit 30, it's a proven fact that you find it physically impossible not to thrash your favourite air guitar about the shop whenever you hear 'Money For Nothing' on the radio. In drink, I've even been known to pop a tie around my forehead and crank the volume up to 11 whenever I hear those chords.

But even more frightening than this is my sudden appreciation for a band called The Proclaimers. I can't believe it's almost 20 years since I first saw them on Top Of The Pops and hollered "Turn those bastards off! Speccy-eyed, Scottish streaks of piss. I've never seen such rubbish!"
And guess what? Last week, I bought their Greatest Hits, and 'Sunshine On Leith' has barely been off full blast ever since. We even had complaints from the neighbours, and the nearest ones are almost a quarter of a mile away. Fuck 'em.

So what do you suddenly like these days that you used to hate? Maybe it's a group, a food, a TV programme. Maybe it's a poster on this forum. Maybe it's me.

If so, let me take this opportunity to say that you are a blob of diarrhoea on God's toilet bowl of life.

And I'm a bottle of 'Domestos'.

You silly sods.

In a similar vein - I used to really, really detest Robin Williams.

But now I'd probably only break one of his legs.

Honestly - Brussel Sprouts - but I don't think you want to know that considering your recent bowel problems!

I can think of nothing that I used to hate and now think great. If anything I hate them more.

For example old people shopping at the weekend when they've got all week to do it, fuckwits who play loud music while driving with windows down, socialists and the Irish.

That said I do like broccoli.

Hmm...I used to hate eggplant when I was little, but now I enjoy the occasional eggplant parm. I also used to hate trying new things, but how I try new things all the time and discovered I like random things like: alligator (well, ok...I don't eat it anymore), peas, tofu (love tofu), veggie burgers, cabbage, etc.

I used to hate salads, and now I like them depending on what they put on them.

As a kid I used to hate the song 'Betty Davis Eyes' by Kim Carnes because I thought the woman had a horrible raspy voice. Now I realize the song is quite great.

Another band that sound better the older you get are Status Quo - all 3 chords of 'em.

I just hope and pray that I'll never grow to like U2, REM or Coldplay. I'll be put down before that sad day.
