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.

What if Harry Potter Was an R-Rated Movie? [Video]

It was only a matter of time, really. I'm sort of surprised this hasn't come out before now! I guess the animation took a little time or something. But here's a fun video of what 'Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone' would have been like had it been R-Rated in the theaters.

On Monday night, Ned and I joined some cool winners at Buffalo Wing Wings for some free food, hung out, had some amazing wings, and gave away some free stuff at the GRD Bromance! Everyone even got free bottles of sauce from Buffalo Wild Wings before we left, which is freaking awesome!

We were all really excited to head over the Celebration Cinema North, to see Ted 2! Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane are back with another ridiculous comedy about the teddy bear with a soul.

Neon Vibe 5k Was Fun and Glowy on Saturday Night [Video]

Whether you run or not, you'd have had some fun at the Neon Vibe 5k at Fifth Third Ballpark with WGRD on Saturday night! If you're a runner, it's a great 5k to do, since it's not just waiting around early in the morning to run. There's fun stuff going on beforehand, including Zumba, free stuff, and if you're a guy...a lot of hot ladies in running gear!

I know, I'm pathetic, haha.
