Oh yeah… me and MM are enjoying a glass of the special stuff tonight. And we’ve waited a bit for this. In the last two or three years, I’ve come across a few genetic mutations of female adult vermin of a highly toxic strain. But guess what? Tonight, at least, a little justice has been done.

They’ve gone where the goblins go, below… Well not really, but figuratively. So tonight’s music selections are with this in mind. I tell you, you cannot imagine what this means. A strike back for the small person. The pen is mightier than the sword and all that, but quite frankly (Mr Shankly) it’s what’s fair and right and just. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past couple of years, is that the right thing doesn’t always happen.

Well, we could have gone for Small Heads by Lisa Germano or Serves You Right by Howie Beck, but tonight, happy campers everywhere, raise your glasses to a little bit of vintage Eric B & Rakim with Paid In Full.
