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.

There was a survey don't recently by and affairs website, Victoria Milan, to discover what kinds of music people who cheat listen to. Some people would think that metal fans would be disloyal, deviant, and ready for cheating on their significant others.

But apparently, it's the classy jazz peeps who like to do the extracurricular activities. Sleazy, jazz scum.

Want to Laugh a Lot and Maybe Meet Women in GR? Go See Avenue Q at GR Civic Theatre

I did something different last night. Something I didn't think I would ever do, but so many people have told me about how fun it is, and I caved.

I went and saw a musical. Avenue Q, at the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre.

I know, I know. But this musical is really funny, and adult. Not like most musicals, where the singing just seems out of place and silly. These songs are silly on purpose, and make fun of a lot of things, which I like.

Lzzy Hale Almost Performed in Grand Rapids with Lindsey Stirling on Monday Night [Video]

On Monday, June 8th, Lindsey Stirling appeared at the DeVos Performance Hall here in Grand Rapids, for her sold out show! If you don't know who she is, she's the 'Dub Step Violinist'. She's a classically trained violinist who writes her music with ambient and dub step style sound to it.

Why would care? One, it's pretty cool; two, it's impressive that she can play a violin and dance at the same time; and three, she recorded a song on her new album with Lzzy Hale from Halestorm! It's called 'Shatter Me', and is the title track to the new album, too.

Mayhem Festival Promoter Has Approached Pantera for a Reunion

Here's a bad idea:

The producer behind the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival has approached the surviving members of Pantera about reuniting, to 'get them out there'. He thinks it would be totally 'bad ass'...and people would have a chance to see Pantera, and of course he would make a s***-ton of money selling tickets.

I know, a lot of people never got to see Pantera during their heyday, and would really like a chance to see them. I totally get it.

But guess what? It's NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!
