A while back, Irwin posted a link to the Alaska Bearcam. If you watched for a while, you could see the bears devour salmon alive; gruesome sashimi. The don't even use wasabi or soy sauce, just gnaw right in.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44am Guido (Cologne):

hello everyone!

Liked the cover art of "Maggot Brain" the most. It never quite grabbed me so much music-wise. maybe because I'm not the biggest fan of guitar solos, maybe at the time I bought a dozen re-issues of Funkadelia in one pile, so it fell behind a bit.
