BLURB

If you don’t know what you want then you really should get your act together. Look, it’s not that hard...I should know. I’ve been a professional mechanic for going on 20 years now. It’s my calling. There’s nothing more fulfilling then fixing a sound that’s really getting under someone’s skin. That ‘fucking rattling thing’ or that ‘occasional grinding squeal’ that maybe ‘sounds like top teeth against a blackboard’ I guess you could say I destroy any sound that isn’t normal and, well, that includes you moaning about ‘what it all means’ and all this...shit. It’s so simple I can’t believe you don’t have it licked: go get a job and get really fucking good at it. If you have sleep issues see a doctor because their medicine is getting really good. Last time I went for my sleep problems the doc gave me some great pills. They knock me right the fuck out especially after a few tall boys and with the TV on in the background of course.
