I know that I’m not supposed to like this; but, crap, everybody reading this is just as much part of the counter-culture as the band is, right? …No, really. There’s no such thing as counter-culture, actually. In fact, it only looks like there’s a monolithic culture for people to counter from the outside. From the inside it’s pretty much ‘weirdos pretending to fit in with everybody else’ all the way down.
I don’t know if that’s wisdom, or just me projecting my own weirdo status on everybody else. Assuming that there’s a difference.
