Origin of name

Nobody really knows what his screenname is supposed to mean. Perhaps it is an exclamation of rage screamed into the air from a woman he widowed. It could be a calling card in the form of a branding iron marking (usually to ignorant conservatives who think fetuses are more important than women). It could be an attempt to make up a Wu-Tang Clan moniker. Or it could just be his initials.


Controversy

Despite his happy-go-lucky and quirky nature, JRA is reviled in the forums for opinions and facts that others would find repulsive. He is completely burnt out on Guns N Roses, and doesn't comprehend how anyone can continue to put up with Axl Rose's shit. Axl Rose needs an ass kicking of Rodney King proportions by Boy George and the guys from Rosenshontz.

Music & Journalism

JRA would jump at the chance to write for a music magazine if most of the opinions in the music world weren't bought already. While his knowledge of music isn't as vast as say, Eddie Trunk's, nor is his record collection as big as, say, Ross Rifle's, he is quite passionate about it. He likes to spend time drumming up musical playlists, concert setlists, or just drumming in general (despite the fact that he sold his drumset about a year ago, he can't seem to resist the urge to air drum to most forms of music, and unfortunately that does on occasion include Eurodisco). Doesn't seem to care about Led Zeppelin's "plagirism" controversy, thinks such detractors can blow him. Wonders if "pop" music can be classified by anything other than high record sales.


His favorite band use to be Iron Maiden, until they starting fucking up by releasing that repetitive nonsense A Matter Of Life & Death, and claiming it was the best thing ever, not to mention being lazy in their live setlist. But at least they don't downtune from their albums in an attempt to sound "heavier" or make up for aging voices.

Politics

Despite his title being "Damn dirty liberal" and being a Bill Maher nutswinger, JRA actually thinks he's just right of center, as he cares slightly more about property then he does about people.
