That's clearly not the kind of "listener" Bosphorus was referring to Bob. Know folks like that myself who don't play but have offered some good insights on music.

He was covering the social standing {status symbol} types that are all over the music with what they have to say about it to gain the one up over others but really don't dig the sounds in real life they're on about one bit. Now THAT's pretentious human behavior.....
