This week is addressed to my haters. First off, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to read my column. Second, the things that I write and talk about are just one man's opinion. I just throw things out there and if you agree or disagree, it's up to you. I don't expect everyone to agree with what I'm saying, and that's cool. But there are a lot of people out there who see things similarly to how I see them, but they don't speak up or say it out loud. All I'm doing is speaking up for those people. I'm not trying to win a Nobel Peace Prize or anything like that; I'm just a regular guy, and I have a platform to speak, that's all. It's just an opinion, you either get it or you don't.

It's cool either way. I love the comments and want everyone to keep commenting, because there's a lot to learn from everybody, even the people who don't like my column. To the people who do like it, thank you very much, and the people who don't, good luck to you. Cheers.

Five Albums I'm Listening to This Week: 1) Terror, Lowest of the Low. 2) Baroness, the Red Album. 3) Cursed, I. 4) Jesuseater, Step Into My Death Ray. 5) Sick Of It All, Scratch the Surface.
