    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Why should I be skeptical? Without a little more research, I'm not necessarily convinced that's the best approach.

    Is an informed skeptic best for metal?

    you can bet with reasonable certainty anyone who self-identifies as a "skeptic" in fact believes some pretty whacked out stuff.

    I ask because, well, I consider myself a skeptic in regards to a few things. I wouldnt say that me beliefs are all that whacked out... maybe just a little.

    maybe. i'm basing this on personal experience, of course... people who bang on about being skeptics seem to be a breeding ground for conspiracy theories, ranging from unlikely to completely bonkers.

    it's a bit like someone telling you they're charming. if it's true, they won't need to say it.
