I know the economy might suck right now, but this way you can still be a supporter of Metal, you can still be a supporter of art, creating, books, heshers, David Lee Roth, girls who love to write. You'll also reap some good energy/karma, see the updates, and learn about my process. Obviously it's only a buck. But every single buck counts. And so does the rad effort. So, why not?
