You thought I would never become a fan of them. You though that I was going to be against them for life. Well, turns out you’re wrong. Way wrong.
At first I was mad, and then I ignored them and gained a little respect for them cause I learned that this is just what they do, it’s who they are. I can’t do anything about that. Opinions are opinions, images are images. Then I realized, why dislike them? What did they ever do to me? Nothing. Come to think of it, I thought their image was pretty cool and I thought Oderus was a pretty humorous guy coming from the planet Scumdogia. It became so strange how he used to piss me off at first but then a few years later, he made me laugh instead.
I don’t know why but suddenly I began to like Oderus a lot more after enjoying the band’s music. What can I say about Oderus? Well he’s not so bad once you get to know him. All his negativity you might as well get used to. But in a sense he makes me laugh the way he is. If he starts to talk shit about any other band or musician I love then there’s no point in getting upset. Oderus is just being Oderus. I’m now kind of upset that he’s gone now. You know what that means: will Gwar continue without him or disband. If I ever saw Gwar it means I would see the band without him in it and I don’t know if that’ll be the same. I am still learning the names of the other band members but I also know Balsac the Jaws of Death and Beefcake the Mighty and that’s it so far but I’ll get to know the rest of them as I go deeper in to the fandom. The only challenge I can see out of being a Gwar fan now is dealing with anyone who strongly dislikes their negativity. To me I just see them as entertainment. Another band I can listen to to escape reality for however long I desire. I may not always agree with their views in life and aggressive approach to everything but that’s them. The truth is that I care about the music and image and that’s it. Nothing more, nothing less.
