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.

At Least One Michigan Man Should Never Drive Again

This is not some overreaction to the idiots driving the wrong way down one way streets during Artprize. Or the people not paying any attention downtown, as they try to find that "one kick ass art thing I heard my friend say he saw downtown". This is about a real guy pulled over in Lake Orion, MI, who's a bit of a danger to society.

Artprize Eight 2016 Survival Tips for Grand Rapids Workers

Artprize Eight is here! Wednesday, September 21st, downtown Grand Rapids filled up with thousands of additional people, wandering aimlessly through the streets and buildings, taking your favorite booth at the restaurant you love for lunch, and clogging the streets as they try to decided if they're really lost or not. Yay, Artprize!

I've had two years of experience with it now, and I've learned some valuable lessons from it, and I would like to share them with you now.
