So Much Testosterone

A former English professor of whom I'm greatly fond once wrote me,
I can't hear what happens in rock music. Indeed, it's as bizarre to me as watching a baseball game or a football game--it's as though I see people moving but I cannot begin to understand how anyone can appreciate what is going on, which seems to be bodies moving around in a blur.
Rick Ernst's documentary Get Thrashed: The Story of Thrash Metal is unlikely to help him decipher these mysteries. But it goes a long way in explaining the mindset and passions of many young males in the 1980s and early 1990s.

Um ... myself included.
