Thank you so much, I'm humbled and honored. If it wasn't for this forum, I never would have met the Motorz, who in turn can be blamed to introducing me to the local scene and the fine folks who make it happen.

I've been accused of being the Motorz hype man. Well, so what? I owe them too much not to be.

GET OUT AND SEE A LOCAL SHOW OR I WILL BREAK OUT THE RUBBER HOSE, YOU DAMN HIPPIES.

When I saw this topic the only names that popped into my skull were Walter, snoqueen and kurtw, but I don't spend too much time here. Maybe Kenneth Burns is eligible now that he no longer works for Isthmus. Oh, and that dude that is really into food, particularly Asian cooking, forget his name. I like his posts.

The rest of us are trolls.

My top ten is a top five. Maybe I'd put snoqueen on there twice.

I agree with Stomach. Top three are Sno, Walter, and kurtw, in no particular order.

My last three local shows were probably the Wizenhiemers, Jimmy the Go Go Man, and Imminent Attack. I don't think I want to bump into Walter.

(Unless you count opening bands. I think the Anemic Renegades opened up for Raging Slab. They sounded pretty local)

Walter is definitely a huge asset.

I would include Mean Scenester in deference to his other ... contributions, and tack Wagstaff on for cultural memory. Sno is a gimme as is kurtw. I don't think it's fair to count professional contributors to Isthmus, but if it were, for sure Kenneth and of course jjoyce.

I don't have time to monitor this thread, could somebody please shoot me an email when my name is called? At this rate, it's going to take quite a while to get through the also-rans.

I disavow my poll. Too many names I forgot, some of them pretty important. I guess it really shouldn't be a popularity contest anyway. It's about content.

I'm just going to go ahead and assume that I was #11. Which is fine, as I'm used to lagging a little bit behind rrnate. A real trendsetter, that guy.

And we arrive at El Ocho, a pick that will no doubt stir some resentment: Ned Flanders.

Our conservative friend can often be troll-like in demeanor. But he can also be hilarious and even helpful. Though he appears to reside in the Twin Cities, Flanders has a wealth of knowledge about Madison that he uses for both evil and good. Those who can't stand him have to at least acknowledge how skillfully he raises the ire of most fellow Forons.

So raise your glasses, or your middle fingers, and join me in saluting the eighth wonder of the Foron world: Ned Flanders.

There's only one thing I can say about Ned; Clinton's Penis.

I figured he would be part of the list. He does submit to many other categories than politics so I'll give him that. Plus, I'll have to give him credit for trudging through a primarily liberal forum for so many year.

I'll raise you two Clinton Penis's for 'ol Neddy.

I can tell that Jann Wenner has nothing to do with his poll, because neither Springsteen nor the Dead have been mentioned yet.
