Many big cities are too self absorbed. You go to Milan or Paris and the only bands playing are some local heroes who suck monkeyballs but through the size of the city achieve mega status nevertheless. Or the bars close at midnight and you have to move to expensive private clubs to continue your evening. I guess it's a little like getting Megan Fox or something into bed. It was good, but a slightly less perfectly build female might very well have given you more pleasure.
