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.

Enjoy Morgan Freeman’s Best Unboxing Video Ever

Morgan Freeman's voice is one of those amazing voices that you hear in your head any time you think of narrating something. Even if you just see his picture, his voice suddenly pops into your head.

This guy does a great Morgan Freeman impression, and I'm sure you've seen the movie this parodies.

Surprise! Men Are More Likely to Die Stupidly than Women

Can you believe people actually pay big money for research projects to determine what anyone with a brain can immediately answer?

A study has been done to see if men are more likely to die stupidly and win a Darwin award than women are.

Umm...just a quick guess before I read the study...I will say, yes.

How Does Royal Blood Get that Huge Sound with Only Two Guys?

The band Royal Blood has had an almost meteoric rise this year.  Since getting together in January of 2012, the band has played a few small shows, and then moved quickly into large venues, opening for bigger bands, in front of 30,000 people!

Their debut album, Royal Blood, has sold a bunch of copies, and their songs "Out of the Black", and "Figure It Out" have gotten a lot of attention, and have been top 5 singles for quite a while this year.

Their sound is a bit different, and comes from being generated by only two guys!

Guy Makes Music With Women’s Butts – You Know You Want to Watch This Video!

How do I get THIS JOB!

I'm not even kidding! I want to be able to just come up with some crazy idea about making music, get some pretty girl butts lined up in front of me, and play away!

I would put out a new album every freaking day! My percussion skills would be off the charts!

Some Former Child Stars Who Became Porn Stars or Went Wild Photos [Video]

Being a child star must be a freaking nightmare, because so many of the child stars we hear about have gone on to be total train wreck adults.

Lindsey Lohan, Miley Cyrus, etc.

Lindsey's probably only a step away from going full-on pron (yes, spelled that way on purpose -- it's a trendy thing or something), and Miley is sort of already doing it on stage now.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra Rocked Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids [Video]

I've been a fan of Trans-Siberian Orchestra since they put the project together, and I was a fan of Savatage before that.  

I got to see one of the first tours the band did, when it was much more stripped down, and it was really good even then.

Flash forward several years, and the show keeps getting bigger, better and more amazing!

Jackyl Hit Grand Rapids, Cut Down Trees and Rocked the Intersection with GRD

Saturday, Jackyl rolled into town for their show at The Intersection, and we had some fun things planned with Jesse James Dupree before the show!

First, we picked him up and went out to see the nice people out at Vormittag Christmas Tree farm, so Jesse could use his famous chainsaw to cut down a couple Christmas trees for some GRD winners!  Thanks to Grand Rapids E-Liquid for helping us get some people set up for Christmas!

Funny Things Audio Engineers Say in the Studio

We've picked on all the band members (except keyboard players so far), but we can't leave out the audio engineer who sits behind the keyboard and has to listen to all this stuff.

So, here's a great video of the funny things you'll hear audio engineers say during the recording process.

It really needs more "do it again" and "one more time" in there, though.
