"A pessimist is never disappointed" *

With apologies to Reidski for stealing his manner of blog-posting (though I think he mentioned 'twas ripped from elsewhere...?), I hereby pass on this wonderful gem (scroll) recounted on Norm's site. What joy to all us pessimists!

* The Audience. The only track of theirs I ever liked.

Now look, I know artists like to come across as clever but when you steal an idea and change its clothes, that's not clever, it's theft. "A Pessimist Is Never Disappointed" is obviously and outrageously a rip-off of Ian Hunter's "You're Never Alone With A Schizophrenic", which was taken from a public toilet wall and given to him by his great mate and legendary guitarist Mick Ronson. This all happened in 1977. Don't think that too much time has gone by that some of us old buggers don't notice - we're not dead yet...!

Was never entirely convinced that a band like The Audience could come up with something that original. But appreciate the tip on whence was ripped.
