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.

The X-Rays are pretty brutal, too. So, to celebrate the release of the new Mortal Kombat X, here's a cool video put together by IGN, of all the Fatalities and X-Rays (so far). In glorious HD, so you can see all the gore and violence in High Definition!

Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson Narrates World’s Largest Aircraft Fundraising Video

Bruce Dickinson, aside from being one of the greatest singers in the world, is also a professional pilot, and investor in a fantastic new project called Airlander.

Airlander is a giant lighter-than-air craft -- basically think dirigible (a balloon with engines). It can take off and land anywhere, can do it vertically, hover, stay up for long periods of time, and carry heavy loads. Oh, and it's also much cleaner and greener than airplanes.

Sounds freaking amazing, right?
