Don't know much about the other bands, but I'm interested in seeing IWABO, and getting to hang out with their drummer Mikey. He's a really cool guy, and the rest of the band are also funny and real approachable people without any rockstar bs attitude.

Never wrestled any bears...but I did kick one in the snout one time!

It wasn't a very impressive thing, he was just a midsized black snuffler, and I kinda sandbagged the poor dude, though I had good reason to do so...fvcker ripped apart my gear stash before that, causing me a wee bit of annoyance ;)

This band is a more than a bit silly though...guess maybe that's the point eh? :)

Hey Overlord, check out the smiley following RMs post...tongue in cheek, ya see?

Eh now :)

I don't give a fvck who on here may happen to like these gapers, it don't dilute my perspective of them...I like all kinds of random sh!t that ain't got nothin to do with METAL, and if someone has a problem with it, well, that problem lies with them

You boast more than a few non-metal acts in your profile. I myself am a fan of Riverside and have been following Katatonia since the late 90's. Neither act is currently as heavy as iwrestledabearonce. Better perhaps, but not definitely not metal.

Ah hell, that didn't come out quite right...

Anyone liking a band like this doesn't affect my view of the LISTENER...obviously folks can (or not) be fans of whatever the hell they want, certainly not for me to judge

Just as long as nobody ever comes on here proclaiming this kind of band to be the 'best' METAL ;)
