Actually the spiders aren't bad. I mean, they exist, but I don't go poking around in dead trees or sticking my head in attics, so I don't encounter them very much. And I don't live in funnelweb territory.
I live close to a big city, so bands do usually come here, but I've never been to a gig (probably just a function of my age).
