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.

U.S. Military Actually Has a Zombie Apocalypse Plan!

This is not a joke, this is not a test!  The U.S. Military has plans sitting around for pretty much every contingency: kidnapped president, nuclear war, insect invasion, alien invasion and plant apocalypse. OK, maybe not the plant thing, but they could!

It turns out that they also have a very real plan for how to deal with a Zombie Apocalypse!  It's called CONOP 8888, and it was recently discovered.

What does it do?

Slayer’s ‘War Ensemble’ Rocked on a Ukulele [Video]

This could be the greatest thing to be posted on the Internet since yesterday's most awesome thing posted on the Internet!  

Yesterday was the orgasming ladies singing, which is still an image I go to sleep with.

But today's is for the serious (or not-so-serious) metalhead in us all.

SLAYER covered on ukulele, solos included! What more could even be said?

Dutch All-Female Band Films Itself Singing While Having Orgasms [Video]

I take everything else back that I've ever said about things being cool.

This could be the coolest thing ever posted on the Internet.

It's no surprise that they've gotten 7 MILLION views on this video in the last 5 days. The Dutch all-girl band Adam released this video the other day.

This is the New Hit Song from an Ash Tree; Still Better Than Miley or Bieber

If a tree is playing a piano in the forest, and there's someone there to record it, would it sell better than Justin Bieber?

I think the video of a tree playing a piano would kick Bieber's ass, yes.  

But what some dude actually did is a little different. It's music created from the rings of a tree.

How I Imagine Women Put On Their Makeup Every Morning [Video]

I'm not privy to the hidden secrets that are a woman's morning ritual of makeup, so in my head, I picture the last girl in the video.  If that was really how it went, that would be totally amazing, and I would high-five every woman I saw for doing it.

Unfortunately, I'm told that doesn't really work.  This makes me sad.

People Are Taking Video Games Further than Ever Before

Video games have become more and more popular over the last 30 years, changing from something only a few total dorks spent time on to something everyone is doing.  

Games are taking over everything, from TV to movies. All the commercials are for videos games, or are based on something from a video game. They're everywhere!

If you're playing video games, that's great.  If you're taking these games past the point of the game into something completely new, are you still playing or are you creating something else?

Belgian Drummer is a Kick-Ass One-Man Music Machine! [Video]

Most DJs just play crap from their laptops and check their email while people dance, but this dude rocks the hell out of the drum kit!

Okay, so technically there are two guys in SquarElectric, but the other guy mostly does video and some sound effects.  The guy controlling all the music and samples, as well as playing the drums, is Michael Schack.  He's an energetic Belgian drummer who has put together this project called SquarElectric.

Don’t Mess With the Ref – He Will Kick Your Ass [Video]

First rule of professional fighting should be:
If the ref for your fight has anger management issues, stop when he tells you to stop.
These two guys start their karate match (don't get technical with me if it's Tae Kwon Do or some s***), and when the ref tried to stop the fight, they don't listen to him.

Morning Host Gets Cute and Dirty – Her Co-Host Can’t Handle It

There's nothing sexier than an Australian woman who loves cute animal videos, unless it's an Australian woman who loves cute animal videos and accidentally says dirty things while watching them.  This is both.  I can't even remember the setup she used for this video, because I keep laughing at what she says.

I know, I'm immature.

Downtown Grand Rapids Time-Lapse Day into Night

Okay, I got bored last night, so I set up a GoPro camera to shoot a time-lapse out my window here at the station.  I've never done one before, but it's pretty cool!  I had to download a program to stitch them all together, but still, it came out pretty cool!  Watch my view of downtown as the sun goes down and night takes over downtown Grand Rapids last night.
