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.

Watch Popcorn Pop in Awesome Super Slo-Mo

I love the crazy Russian science hacker geek dude.  

I have no idea what his name is, obviously, but I think the stuff he's doing on YouTube is fun, and made even more entertaining by his accent, and when he says "Eh...close enough!"

He's doing more Slo Mo Lab stuff, and has some really cool things shot in like 25,000 frames per second, so you can really see things happen. He also does what most other slo-mo shows don't do.

Metal Being Blamed for Another Suicide – People Are Dumb

A guy hanged himself in the woods recently, and guess who's fault it is?

Slipknot's, apparently!

Why can't the media stop tying every suicide or murder to heavy music?  If he'd had Justin Bieber playing n his iPod, no one would have said a word about what he had been listening to.  But because it was metal, then the music must have had something to do with it!

Fired Slipknot Drum Tech Confirms New Band Member Identities

If you're trying to keep a secret, things can get difficult if someone in the inner circle gets fired.  So far, Slipknot has tried (not very successfully) to keep the identities of their new members a secret.

Today, this has officially ended.

The new former drum tech for Slipknot, Norm Costa, has posted the complete band list on his Instagram page, with some not very nice hashtags on it.

Watch as a Bass Player Ruptures a Testicle With an Air Cannon on Stage

Dutch band Delain was playing a show in England on November 26th, and the bass player forgot something really important.

Always protect your nuts.

During "The Gathering", some air cannons go off to start the wrap up singalong section of the song, and the band members are supposed to not stand in front of them.

Guess who forgot?

Judas Priest Headlines a Day of Rock on the Range 2015

The mighty Judas Priest has been tearing through the country, supporting their new album Redeemer of Souls, and sadly, they missed Grand Rapids.  But there is still a chance for us to go see them, as they're headlining a day of Rock on the Range 2015!

The three day festival hits Columbus in May, and Judas Priest will be wrapping up day one, probably.  If they keep the setup similar to this year's, when GNR played the first day, then I'm thinking Priest will close the show that Friday, May 15th.

These Sexy GIFs of Girls Playing the Wii Explain Why We All Bought It

Okay, let's be honest.  When the Wii came out, and we all heard what it was about, we all knew that sexy ladies wearing very little clothing would be the best thing about it.  That's why you couldn't get the damn thing for so long, it was always sold out to people making amazing things like this happen:

Halestorm Rockin’ New Music Live: ‘I Like It Heavy’ [Video]

Halestorm recorded their new album in October, trying a mostly live approach to the album, and trying different things along the way.

When they were here in August with Theory of a Deadman, they played one of their new songs, even before it had been recorded, and everyone loved it.

Now that it's been recorded, and they've got the final version of the song, they're playing it more around the country, and we get to see it some more!

Watch Monday Night’s Craig Ferguson Show with Metallica Kicking Off the Week

Metallica kicked off their week-long stint on the Craig Ferguson show with not only a funny interview where "Morgan Freeman" called and asked Lars to take off his shirt, but a blistering performance of "Hit the Lights".

Metallica is stepping in to replace U2, who had to drop out because they're freaking lame. Or something.
