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.

A few years ago, you might have seen a pretty cool movie called, "Quarantine", with Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter's TV sister), where she followed some firefighters into a building that's, well, quarantined.  

It's a pretty cool flick, but the movie it's adapted from is kick ass.

It's called "". It's a Spanish language movie, but is more brutal, and scary than the American version.

An insanely challenging song, at a ridiculous looks like the video has been sped up, and isn't real.  But it's totally real.

This ukulele cover version takes all of that, and puts it on the Uke!

Alter Bridge Releases Cool Animated Video for ‘Cry of Achilles’ [Video]

Alter Bridge, in case you've been in a cave for the last decade, is the band that Mark Tremonti formed after Creed dissolved, to put out music that's a bit heavier than Creed, but still melodic.

He snatched up one of the best singers around right now, Myles Kennedy, and they've not looked back!

The new album, Fortress, came out last year, and it's freaking amazing!  If you don't have it, pick this album up and play it in your car REALLY LOUD. Or in your home. Either way, it's great.
