Johnnie Walker

I've never been good at filling these things out, but here it goes. I like long walks in cold mountain air, preferably with snow on the ground. I enjoy drinking fine soda by the crackling fire, and deep tissue massage. I hope to one day grow up an become and astronaut, so I can fly to Venus to see if that's really where women come from. If it's true, I'll bring one back for you, too. Unless it's a dude you want, and then you're out of luck...sorry. My favorite month is October, because Halloween is the best holiday ever! It allows me to openly proclaim my love and obsession with scary movies without being seen as some sort of lunatic. Okay, not too much of a lunatic. I'm a huge fan of rock and metal music, and you'll often hear me blasting the control room speakers into oblivion every night during my show. My engineer doesn't like me very much, since he has to fix them. Sorry, Mike.

Scientists have been researching anti-aging for a long time now, and they think they've stumbled upon something that not only can turn back the clock in aging mice, but also helps mend broken bones faster!

Only problem, the cure is young blood, so you'll have to go all Lestat on some teens or something.

Scott Weiland Doesn’t Really Rock on the Range [Video]

A few weeks ago, Scott Weiland received a TON of criticism for an absolutely terrible performance of 'Vaseline'. Admittedly, some of it came from me. It was bad, and a lot of people accused him of being back on heroin. (I didn't, I thought being on drugs might have helped him.)

Weiland could have CRUSHED at Rock on the Range to show that his 'monitor problems and tiredness' excuse had any merit. Unfortunately, he sounds pretty much the same. Check out the video, especially when he gets into 'Vaseline'.

Hatebeak’s Parrot Metal Returns With ‘Number of the Beak’ Album

A few years ago, there was a small movement in metal, where animals were the lead vocalists of a few bands. The 'big names' of the genre were Caninus, and Hatebeak. Hatebeak is the band from Baltimore formed in 2003, and fronted by an African Grey Parrot named Waldo.

Not the most metal name, but an awesome metal vocalist.
