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.

BaCon is this weekend, and we're all excited for mountains of BACON!  This will be my first time diving head first into all the bacon, and it's also the first time for Chef Jameson Voss and Louis Benton to be bringing their bacon creations to the Deltaplex for the event!

Jameson came by the GRD studios today to talk about his involvement in BaCon, the dishes he's bringing to the event on Saturday, how he discovered his girlfriend is a keeper, and very importantly, pounds of candied bacon!

How to Disarm a Landmine with a Pocket Tool – DON’T Try This!

DO NOT TRY THIS CRAZYNESS AT HOME.  I don't care how many landmines you might have lying around.

In fact, if you have them lying around, you have deeper issues that you need to get checked.

This crazy Cambodian dude shows how to disarm a live mine in less than four minutes with a freaking pocket tool!  Apparently, he does this so often, he even has his kids around while he does it!

Do I have to say not to do this again?

Watch a Bowling Ball Fall at the Same Speed as Feathers – Because Science

There's one thing that's pretty cool, no matter who you are.  Science experiments.

Not the boring calculations, and theories, and all that stuff.  But the actual experiments that people do to prove all those crazy ideas the scientists have are true.  Whether it's a simple thing, or an insanely difficult thing to do, it's always pretty cool to watch.

Large Hadron Collider?  WTF?  But show me the stuff exploding when you collide stuff...I'm there.

Things falling slowly in a vacuum?  Hell yeah!

Sorry Vegans – Plants Don’t Like Being Eaten Either

The vegans are still on the rampage, trying to get everyone to stop eating the animals, and to switch completely over to just the leafy things.

Unfortunately, their party-line of cruelty extends to the plant world.

Plants not only know they're being eaten, but also don't like it and try to stop it!

Nekrogoblikon Is Going to Be Metalhead Ned’s Next Favorite Band Ever!

If you have ever heard one moment of Ned talking, you've probably heard about GWAR and Mushroomhead at least a few times in that moment.  He loves those two bands so much.

Just in time for Halloween, I think I've found another band that Ned can place into that same love-fest in his mind.

They're called Nekrogoblikon, and they're real goblins.  They're definitely not dudes in goblin costumes...that would be silly.

Avengers 2

Check Out This Cool Short Clip from ‘The Avengers 2′ Movie [Video]

I really liked the first one (Hulk stole the show), and so far all the trailers and peeks at the new one look equally amazing!

Check out this sneaked video from a Marvel event, with Iron Man and Captain America. It starts off as just a dialog scene, but you know they can't let that go on too long before someone has to show some kind of bad ass super power.
