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.

GRD Cardboard Bobsled Derby 2015 Photo Gallery

On Saturday, WGRD joined Labatt at Cannonsburg for the 5th Annual Cardboard Bobsled Derby! It was freaking cold as hell out there, but that didn't stop anyone from having a blast racing down the mountain, and even falling apart halfway!

Here are some photos of the sleds before they exploded on the slopes, and some from the awards party afterward!

If you missed it this past weekend, check out the photos, watch the fun video here, and then join us next year for all the fun! Maybe you'll even build your own bobsled and join us going down the hill!


Cardboard Bobsleds Raced Down and Even Flew Over Cannonsburg! [Video]

GRD had a fun day out at Cannonsburg Ski & Ride Area in Belmont with you guys, Cannonsburg and Labatt for the Cardboard Bobsled Derby!

So many fantastic racers came out and tried to keep their bobsleds together as they raced down the hill.

Some didn't quite make it all the way down, some did get slowly down and some, well, hit record speeds!

Guitar World Takes You on a Tour of Dimebag Darrell’s House and Studio [Video]

I still can't believe it's been over ten years since we lost Dimebag. His contribution to music was so huge, and his playing was amazing, and he was always such a happy, fun guy.

It's interesting to see how the guy lived and worked, and now you can see more about his home and his studio, with this great tour by Guitar World!

Guitar Upgrades – Can You Hear the Difference in Pickups? [Video]

Today was guitar day for me, and I've been really looking forward to doing this video and guitar upgrade. I've recently gotten some new pickups for one of my favorite guitars, my EC-1000, from ESP/LTD.

It's a great guitar, and I've played the hell out of it for years, but the pickups have been bugging me for a while now.

Super Geek Defenders on Internet Are Hysterical

While trolling Facebook for something funny to look at, I found this article on insane but real statistics about fictional universes, like "Star Trek," "24," Disney movies, "Lord of the Rings," "The Lego Movie" and more!

It's a pretty cool article that gives you some amazing facts from these shows and movies you might have missed.

Like, for example, that Jack Bauer has killed 309 people over the course of nine days and two hours in the show "24." Or that the estimated value of Smaug's gold horde in The Hobbit is $62 billion!

What Would It Be Like If We Did Internet Things in Real Life? [Video]

Admit it, we all do some really dumb crap on the Internet.

I'm not talking about posting videos of us doing dumb things -- although we do that. I'm just talking about all the things we do every day: liking posts, hating on posts, stalking people, captchas, watching porn. OK, maybe that last one isn't as weird.
