Bryan Ferry is being Bryan Ferry in an article about Bryan Ferry.

That's funny. I only drink wine with ugly labels, because it has lower self-esteem and is easier to talk into my mouth.

Well how do you choose wine Balk? I'm with Bryan, it's all about the typography.

@LondonLee Alcohol by volume/price point

Him and Calvin Trillin:

"When I’m trying to select a bottle of wine in a liquor store I’m strongly influenced by the picture on the label. (I like a nice mountain, preferably in the middle distance.)"

I buy wine based on the box design.

@Tully Mills Only if it's a really pretty box.

I skip the middleman altogether, preferring to just eat old grapes.

Does this make him one of the 1%?

Well, John Taylor once said he couldn't listen to a band if he didn't like the cut of their trousers. This reminds me of that.

I can't listen to albums if they don't have at least one lady with her nipples peeking out of her slip on the cover.
