I once read a manuscript in which the author went on and on about how The Beatles were the only good band ever, and the only song young people know is Yellow Submarine, but that's not even their best song. Needless to say, I rejected the manuscript. I can't stand pretentious authors who shit on younger generations because they think their shit smells like roses. That being said . . .
