This one was for Tran, my first character, back when Elf was still a class, and to Neal, for introducing us.
Impotent Nerd Rage owes its existence to the many people who supported it, but these people in particular ponied up cash to have their names put in the credits (hey... I’m a word whore, and these were my Johns...): Tresi Arvizo, Sgt. Daniel W. Krenzke, USMC, Stacey Rigger, Arlie and Tricia Land, Felix Viator (Kevin Nolastname,) Les Howard (from the illustrious Signal Podcast,) Jason (Fougerhousen) Fougerousse, Sean Smith & Angela Gick (both of whom would’ve probably ended up in the credits, anyway,) The Fear The Boot crew (Dan, Chad, Pat, Wayne, & Chris,) Tim Golaszewski, and David & Jennifer Gray.
Oh, and ANTHONY MARKEL (because I really do still love you. Mad man crush, bro.)
Thank you to everyone who supported this album (and especially the Fear The Boot community who convinced me it was both a good idea and genuinely possible.)
Thank you to Jody for laughing with me (most of the time) and for being what it said on my silver yoyo.
Thanks to my brother, Neal, for bringing the Red Box home and initiating me in my geekhood.
And thank you to my sons for their constant inspiration and tolerance of my prolonged absences while on the road.
Thank you Ty Morton for introducing me to Firefly, and Kerry Anne Pritchard for being in the
She Don’t Like Firefly video, and to the Fickle Peach for being my favorite pub.
And thank you Spinal Tap (Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and Harry Shearer) for teaching me that it’s possible to parody a genre without parodying a specific song, but still create credible, viable music. I hope I was able to do that on this album.
