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.

Daniel Tosh Caught ESPN Stealing His Bits and Lashes Back in the Funniest Way Possible

Daniel Tosh has got a gripe with ESPN.  The sports behemoth "came up" with a new segment for their programming, called, "Awesome Video Segment".

Not a genius title, admittedly.

But during the "Awesome Video Segment", they blatantly took the "Web Redemption" idea of Tosh's, and "cheapened the brand".

Grand Rapids First Snowfall of the Season Caught on Timelapse!

I'm probably the only person in Grand Rapids who's been excited for the return of winter to town.  I know I'm certainly the only person in the building who's excited.

So ready, that I set up my GoPro in the window here at work, to catch the first snowfall to come down in downtown GR last night.  We've had little flurries, like the other day and on Halloween, but nothing that sat on the ground and stuck for a bit.

New Avengers 2 Trailer Has Even More Cool Footage in it!

Probably one of the most anticipated movies coming out is the new Avengers: Age of Ultron movie, that's due out next May.  A couple versions of the first trailer have been out a few weeks, a short talking clip is out, and now there's a new trailer, with some different footage in it!

The more stuff I see for this movie, the more excited I get for it!  The first one was such a bad ass experience, and they finally (IMHO) got the Hulk right...and he stole the show because of it.

For those of us with GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome), this video will be a bit of NSFW gear-porn.  Alice Cooper has three guitarists on tour with him right now.  Ryan Roxie, Tommy Henriksen, and the gorgeous and talented Nita Strauss.

Premier Guitar goes back stage to talk with all three guitarists and get them to show their guitars on the tour, what effects they're using to get the sounds they want, and the amps they use to get loud!
