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.

Summer Craft Beer Fest 2014 – Pike 51 Brewing Sampling [Video]

Today, I got to sample some amazing beers at Pike 51 Brewing Company in Hudsonville.  They're part of our 2014 Summer Craft Beer Fest, happening this Saturday at John Ball Park.

If you haven't tried their brews, you owe it to yourself to stop by and do so.  They're very smooth beers, and don't assault you when you drink them, even the ones with higher alcohol content!  I really like how smooth they all are.

Community Saves Mother and Kids from Carjacker with Epic Beatdown!

Some people just deserve a beatdown.  Not that I'm a violent person, or like getting into fight, since I don't.  But when you carjack moms and their kids, you've definitely asked for a beating.

In the parking lot of this San Diego market on Sunday, some people witnessed a guy carjacking a mother and her kids.  He took her keys, and jumped into their minivan with them, trying to drive away.

WGRD’s New Studio Construction Diary – Part 2

The work continues on the new digs for WGRD!  We left off last time with Hot Wings, Producer Steve, and Johnnie Walker getting together for a painting party.  The walls were nasty, so things got painted up really nicely.

Then, this week was all about carpet, TVs, lights, and some radio gear!

One of My Favorite YouTube Guys Does an Amazing Thing [Video]

There's a British guitar player that I've been watching for a very long time now, and a few months ago he did something on his channel that is very cool.  His name is Rob Chapman.

He'd seen a "busker" on the street playing slide guitar one day, and filmed him and posted it on his YouTube account to show everyone how good the guy is.  Apparently, Jeff Beck walked up to the slide player (Nelly Niel) and asked, "WTF are you doing playing in the streets, you're so good!"

The amazing part is what happened a month later.

Babymetal Rocks Sonisphere — Even Bringing a Wall of Death!

So, the Japanese are crazy.  Not in the kill-everyone-while-in-your-underwear kind of way, but in a "wtf is going on over there" kind of way.

The big export right now is a band called Babymetal, which is their fusion of extreme metal brutality and cuteness.  Why?  Because that's what pops into their minds.  I'm telling you, there's something in the water or something over there.

How the Hell Do They Do That? Game of Thrones Edition

It used to be that CGI in movies and TV was so low-budget, that it was ALWAYS noticeable, and horrible.

But now, they've gotten it to the point where most of the time, you have no idea there are even CGI effects in the shots!  Subtle things, like smoke, or city extension, or more people in a shot can all be done really well in CGI now.

Game of Thrones has gotten so popular now, too, that they finally have the budgets to use this amazing tech to do some great visuals for the show.

This is Totally What I Think of When I Hear ‘Batman Versus Superman’ [Video]

A lot of people have been talking about Batman vs Superman for a long time, and I know that there was a really successful comic about.

And yes, there's a huge-budget movie coming with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill.

But whenever I was hearing about it, I'd think, "What could Batman POSSIBLY do to stop Superman in a fight?"

Hot Wings – Producer Steve – Johnnie Walker Paint WGRD’s Studio

In case you haven't seen or heard us talking about it, the GRD studio is getting a bit of an upgrade!  We're really excited about it, and it's fun to watch all the toys arrive, and to see the room get stripped down and rebuilt!

Last night, Hot Wings picked up some paint, and he, Steve, and I spackled (I love that word), taped off stuff, and got to work painting the studio.  Our studio walls were pretty...well...nasty.  After a lot of years and use, they weren't the kind of walls you'd want to touch.
