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.

Mortal Kombat X Has the Most Gruesome Fatalities Yet! [Video]

Every new Mortal Kombat game works really hard to out-gore the previous game, and so far, is succeeding! They evolved into other options, like Babalities, Animalities, etc., but still the most exciting thing MK has is the Fatalities.

The X-Rays are pretty brutal, too. So, to celebrate the release of the new Mortal Kombat X, here's a cool video put together by IGN, of all the Fatalities and X-Rays (so far). In glorious HD, so you can see all the gore and violence in High Definition!

Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson Narrates World’s Largest Aircraft Fundraising Video

Bruce Dickinson, aside from being one of the greatest singers in the world, is also a professional pilot, and investor in a fantastic new project called Airlander.

Airlander is a giant lighter-than-air craft -- basically think dirigible (a balloon with engines). It can take off and land anywhere, can do it vertically, hover, stay up for long periods of time, and carry heavy loads. Oh, and it's also much cleaner and greener than airplanes.

Sounds freaking amazing, right?

Swedish Bands Do Some Fun Things for Their Fans [Video]

Last year, I posted a fun video of one of my favorite bands, Sabaton, rocking a spinning class. They weren't just playing for the people in the class, but also riding the bikes while they played, for exercise! Only in Sweden would people be cool with that.

Now, another great band, Hammerfall, has been playing for customers at a tire (or tyre) store!

Have a Laugh or Two With These Bring Me The Horizon ‘Drown’ Parodies [Video]

Today, I saw this link posted on my Facebook wall, and I had to watch this silly cover version of Bring Me The Horizon's 'Drown'. It's done by 4th N Goal, and is a bit faster, but the Hawaiian shirts probably do that to you. I like the Freddy Krueger glove that comes out of nowhere.

The other fun 'Drown' parody comes as a

New Megadeth Drummer’s Knee Revealed in New Megadeth Recording Video!

The wait is finally over! Those of you who have been speculating on what the new Megadeth drummer's knee will look like, can now sit back and bask in the glory that is said knee, in action, rocking the double-kick-drum madness!

While this knee is a bit more hairy than I like my unclad knees (I prefer lady knees), what the knee is helping do sounds pretty freaking bad-ass, actually.
