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.

Bumblefoot's World Intellectual Property Day messageGuns N' Roses guitarist, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, wants you to get up, stand up for music rights this World Intellectual Property (IP) Day (April 26). #WorldIPDay

Posted by U.S. Embassy Singapore on Thursday, April 23, 2015

Check out this well-spoken message from GNR guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal on illegal downloading and supporting music. I think this is an important message that people really need to hear. Being a music freak, I want people to be able to create more music, and for them to be able to keep creating. Downloading their music is theft, and you shouldn't do it.

Smokin’ Hot Babe Out-Flexes Wannabe Dude on the FlexCam [Video]

This is the first FlexCam I've seen, usually it's a KissCam or something, but I think I like this! Especially when that smokin' hot woman shames the guy in front of her with her amazing physique!

He obviously made some kind of mean comment to her about her giggles while he was flexing, because when the cam came back to them, she quickly shucked off her jacket and made him look like a little kid flexing! A little teasing from her put him in his place!

Laugh at Sebastian Bach Falling Down On Stage [Video]

It's always fun to watch someone else fall down, when you know they're okay. You know how it goes...BOOM, CRASH...moment's hesitation while you check to make sure they're not dead or seriously injured...HYSTERICAL LAUGHTER!

It's even more fun to watch someone who's working hard to be super cool wipe out. It happens to us all, but it's still fun, and at least Sebastian Bach took it well, and made fun of himself. Check out the video of him falling on stage in Beverly Hills at his show.

This Video Shows What I Want to Manny Pacquiao to do to Floyd Mayweather [Video]

I think we can all agree that Floyd Mayweather is annoying and obnoxious. Whether you believe him to be an amazing athlete is beside the point. WIth all his domestic abuse incidents, too, I think we would all love to see something like in the above video happen at the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight on May 2nd.

Imagine Floyd as the guy with big hair in the video, doing all the flips and obnoxious stuff. Picture Manny as the other fighter, waiting patiently to deliver his punch.

‘Killer Rack’ Might Just Be My New Favorite Movie of All Time [Video]

"I have a set of fun bags with a hunger for human flesh!"

How Many Solar Panels Will It Take to Power the World?

How much power do you use every day? How much does the world use? Would it be possible to switch away from fossil fuels and go totally solar powered? Sure, you can cover your roof with panels, but you'd still have to be connected to the grid, so what's the solution?

Apparently, not as much (or as little) as you'd think! Or is it?

Disney is Really Piling Up the Bodies With All the Death in Their Movies!

I know I'm late to the party, but I just go the chance to go see Big Hero 6 yesterday at the theater. I really liked it, the story was good, the lighting and graphics were freaking unbelievable and, of course, how could I not love Baymax? According to Free Beer and Hot Wings, that's me!

But something happened sort of early in the movie that reminded me of Disney's love for killing people off.
