It Is What It Is.

Bonehand Reviews - An concise Introduction by S J Holetz. Full intro Here.

Letís face it, much of our time on this planet is occupied with the pursuit of keeping our little brains entertained. And as
long  as there has been something to entertain us, we have had strong opinions about it.When I first started mulling
over the the concept of what would become, I definitely wanted it to include a review aspect. When it
comes to reviews, I find the enthusiastic zeal of a fanatic infinitely preferable to the dispassionate, "fairly balanced"
air of the professional critic. As such, a more "unbalanced" philosophy (for lack of a better term) will be reflected
in these reviews, along with ALL the same originality, careful thought and variation that you've come to expect from

Hopefully, I will be able to turn some of you on to something cool that you never knew existed, or warn you
before you buy something that you might hate. Of course, some of you will do just that, based upon on a review
that you find here. Itís inevitable. So, if you do end up with something that sucks because of me, my answer to you is:

Youíll get over it.    As always, praise & hate-mail may be directed to
