Had to go pick up some tickets to give away here at WGRD (stay tuned for those soon) and I stumbled past a reminder at the Van Andel Arena of an awesome show that I saw! This was the second time that I saw this band, and I remember being really excited to see them a second time in one year!
I love the Blue Bomber! Who doesn't honestly? He's freakin' MEGA MAN! I do love the old Mega Man games for NES, but Mega Man X was way better in my opinion. When you pop Mega Man X into your SNES, it's a roller coaster ride! The first one was amazing, the second one was just as good, so why stop there? Better make another one that is just as good! Good luck finding it though...
They call me Metalhead Ned, which means that I listen to metal 24 hours a day right? That is true yes, but only partially. For me to only listen to ONE type of music doesn't allow me to expand my mind that much. Remember, I am quite the video game nerd. Today, I have been jamming out A LOT of piano music...specifically Nobuo Uematsu.
I own a lot of video games, and I love each one of them! Nowadays, I am more of a 'video game historian' than really a 'player.' There is a game that I own that I never thought that I would own in my life, because it costs a lot of money. I amazingly received it as a Wedding Present from my previous employer and I had never played it before. It's a quirky but fun game.
Before I became any kind of version of Ned, I was just Mike. I was a Full Time student that needed and internship in order to graduate, and what better place to intern than 97.9 WGRD? Let's take a look at good ol' 'Intern Ned.'
I watch Internet videos more than I do actual TV, mostly because I don't have cable or satellite.The reason internet vids are better for me is because I can pick EXACTLY what I want to watch, and I have learned more from internet vid's than I ever have in a TV show. Gametrailers.com has a unique show that delves into video game myths, some of which have existed for more than 20 years.
Time for a METAL MASSACRE! Their may be a lot of great shows going on this weekend like Wayland and Acoustic Pop Evil, but don't forget that tonight is going to be a brutally metal show at The Intersection to start off the weekend, and that is with ICED EARTH!
There are a lot of video game reviewers on YouTube, like the Angry Video Game Nerd, JonTron, etc. These guys all really know what video gaming is all about, but what if a guy who doesn't play video games at all reviews them? Specifically, Conan O' Brien?
Have you ever gauged your ears before? Are they gauged now? Many people can live normal lives with their earrings, but my ears took a turn for the worse when I gauged them. I started to grow a keloid scar...and man, do they suck. Eric Zane has noticed them over the past year and they just needed to know, so I joined them on air!
The 'Art of Interviewing' is a creative thing. Not everyone can interview perfectly, and what you here in a radio interview is normally never live. Getting a perfect interview is rare, and I hoped that would happen with my interview with Korn's Jonathan Davis. Well...not so much...I lost my cool in a matter of seconds.
