Bear: Most importantly, thanks to Idle for being the best co-owner a girl could ask for and thanks to all the bands and labels we worked with to make this happen. Thanks especially to Greg and D-Ray from Community Records and Adam Alive from It’s Alive Records for being so great to us, and all the bands who took the time to write us songs. A million thanks to my childhood friend, partner in crime, and constant source of sunshine, Whitney Weydert for providing our AWESOME album art. Thanks to Jake Mcaulay for being my best friend, stress reliever, and “bandmate”. Thanks to the boys that I’ve been talking to on facebook 24/7 because I’ve spent my entire life on the computer working on this compilation- you know who you are. Thanks to my cat, who tested all of these songs with me and puts up with dancing to Direct Hit! and House Boat with me. I won’t say any favorites- but thanks to the bands that have been our friends for so long now and were so great about working with us on this. Thanks to Nissin for making Top Ramen- I can’t work without food. And most of all, thank YOU for being our readers, fans, and friends and for downloading/buying this compilation. We love you! Bear hugs.

Idle: I would like to thank all the awesome bands and people who worked with us in putting this out. A special thank you to Greg and D-Ray from Community Records, Tim McGowan from Ghost Aviary, Adam from It's Alive, and The Bear for being a badass co-owner. Working on Idle and the Bear has been one of the most rewarded experiences of my life. I love the bands and I love the people. If you read our blog, you're awesome and I fucking love you. We hope to do this for like, forever. We want to put out so many more awesome compilations for our fans to enjoy the hell out of. God speed, lades and gents.
