Special Thankyous and Shout-outs:

I really want to thank everyone who made this album possible both by being around in my life and/or directly contributing to the music so big ups, thanks, high fives, hugs, and manly fistbumps to:

My family, and most importantly my parents Michael and Debbie Woods, who decided to let me live a weird life based around making music and not pursuing a real job, and all the friends and collaborators who have hung out with me and gotten drunk: Michael Sweeney, Barbara Huntley, Nicholas Carman (congrats on the baby), Steven Rush, Indiana Felix De la Cruz, Marc Sidoreus, Josh Katz, Robin Thompson, Phillip "Madman" Shea, Josh Montgomery, Mark Schaffer, Bryce Case Jr., SJ the Wordburglar, Patrick Nelson, Eli McGinnis, Daniel Snyder (who I apologize to for getting verses sent to me and then never using them), and everyone who sells me energy drinks, beer, and all the other stuff I put in my body that I probably shouldn't. lol, "stuff I put in my body."

In closing, I'd just like to say that nerdcore is racist and dead, and we should all ignore it forever. Free High-C. Rhyme Torrents forever. Nerdcoredrama.com was a joke. Etc.

Ok, I think that about wraps up the last two years.

Peace out,
Benjamin T. Bear
(The "T" is for "Tiberius")

(ok, not really. I never made a fake middle name for my stage name)




Benjamin Bear Reading, Pennsylvania

In 1750, Benjamin Franklin was observed by over fifteen residents of Philadelphia as he branded an unidentified man with an Illuminati insignia. He was overheard telling one of his associates, “my work will be done once Benjamin Bear arrives to complete it.”

The reliability of these findings has been verified.

Benjamin Bear has arrived.
