When you get told only old people listen to dubstep (my mind boggled a bit). I have no idea what they're listening to now. It appears to be ye olde fashioned drum and bass?


What is dubstep?

What's drum and bass???

Dubstep is the little platform where people kneel to be knighted by the queen.  Or alternatively the stage in film-making where they add the foreign language voice-over.

Sorry. While my knowledge is scant, it's a kind of unlistenable,  slowed-down version of drum and bass music.  I think.

Edit: apologies, shao lin.

As far as I understand, Dubstep is heavy on the WUB WUB WUB noises.

...when you get home feeling really achy after work, which mainly involves sitting behind a desk.

I did shift some heavy containers, not long before I left, but it's mainly my legs that were aching. (I do walk a while too, on the way home, but I do that every day. I don't ache that much usually!)

Now here's an interesting thing (to me).  This  medical bum fun has never happened to me at the Doctors. Nor indeed has the ball-cupping beloved of movie draft-board medics. In fact, at 44 I have never had what popular culture has intimated to me constitutes a 'checkup', never mind a 'full medical' - not even when I took out Life Insurance a dozen years back. In my defense while I'm overweight, prone to one bad cold and one bad chesty thing a year, and seem to be developing arthritis in my right elbow and both knees*, I'm otherwise in good health (physical, that is - mentally I'm a fecking trainwreck).  I'd say I darken the door of my GP once every two years tops, have spent exactly one night in hospital over 30 years ago, and last troubled A&E for stitches in 1991.

Should I be demanding a periodic fumbling of my nethers and measuring of my vitals?



*Steady now, it's exactly what you think.

Only if you missed-out on The Golden Age of Irish Catholicism.

So that's what a  Doctor of Divinity does, I did wonder.
