In true TED fashion, he struggles a little to find something suitably highbrow to talk about... but who fucking cares?!?! It's GWAR!!!

What was his role in the Slave Pit? Was he one of the roadies?
Oh shit, wait a minute, he's the original Beefcake! Also Blothar! I had no clue he'd become an academic, but that's fucking... actually, that's fucking terrible. SCUMDOGS HAVE NO NEED OF BOOKS AND LETTERS. Bow before Blothar, puny human, and beg forgiveness!

I'd be surprised if he wasn't. Gwar is totally an academic band.

infinite zest
Eh.. I couldn't make it past 5 minutes. It's like being told that Santa Claus doesn't exist in your mid 30s, you've heard it before and you know the truth, but you don't want it brought up over and over again either. To me, GWAR are NOT from Richmond Virginia!

Sanest Man Alive
"become an academic"? Dang Homer, most of GWAR's starting roster were disgruntled teachers, they come from academia. (Tangent thought: a Little Witch Academia series, but based on GWAR and the Slave Pit instead of anime Harry Potter and boarding school hijinks. Could you get behind that or no?) How can you or zest love GWAR and not even want to know this stuff about them? There's nothing wrong with peeking behind the curtain sometimes.

And zest, of course GWAR is not from Richmond, they are degenerate invaders from beyond the stars. GWAR was created by nerdy academics from Richmond, though, and there are aspects of GWAR that reflect that heritage. All of these things are true. Accept this and be elevated.

I knew they were well-educated art school grads (that's one of the things that got me into art), but I had no idea any of them had earned their PhDs, or had gone on to teaching! Are any of the others teachers, too?! And is there still time to sign up for their classes? I would be willing to move to Virginia.

^ Sorry, have to correct myself, I knew their FALSE HUMAN ALTER-EGOS were well-educated art school grads.

Not sure why they picked "nerds" as their secret-identities, but perhaps they believed it would be harder for their enemies to track them down.

infinite zest
I don't know why this popped into my head but I'd like to see GWAR vs. Ziggy Stardust.

Ziggy Gwardust. Perfect stripper name!

The Mothership
That's the original Beefcake the Mighty speaking there.

GWAR has always been thinking-persons' metal.
