Metalhead Ned’s Flashback Friday – Interviewing Phil Anselmo (The First Time)

2 Years ago, I was pretty new to the art of interviewing. Making sure you find the right questions and being able to spread out from whatever the interviewee has to say. So I was pretty green when it came to interviewing. Then I got an email that just flat out stated...

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday – Welcome to Jurassic Park

1993, that glorious film by the name of Jurassic Park showed up in theaters. I remember begging my mother to bring me to the theater to see it, which in the end, I saw it about 5 times in theaters if I remember right. I had action figures, play sets, etc. I freakin' loved Jurassic Park.

19 years later after the film was released, I finally got to visit Jurassic Park.

Metalhead Ned Someday Hopes to Own His Dream Car

Listening to the Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show today, they mentioned their dream car that they would like to own someday. I wanted to jump on air and say what my dream car was, but that would have been awkward. Once you hear about this car, you are going to say, "He just wants it because of Back to the Future." Yes, that was the first time I saw it, but my love for the car has grown over the years. Someday, I will own it.

RIP Robin Williams – The Mad Misfit King

Robin Williams' death last night came as a great shock to a lot of people, and really saddened me when I heard.  This will be one of the few serious posts you'll see from me, and I normally don't get incredibly emotional over celebrity deaths, since they only superficially touch our lives, but Robin Williams' passing really hit me.

I've been watching this guy work for so long, playing so many different roles, making me laugh, playing amazing dramatic roles...and one thing he mastered with a lot of these roles is the misfit.

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday – My EMU Dorm Room

Oh man, College was a blast! I miss it everyday! The friends I made, the freedom I had, etc. It was my first official time that I moved away from everything in my hometown. I went to Eastern Michigan University. Regardless of all the bad press this place receives, I loved every minute I was there and I got the true college experience out of it, meaning that I lived in the dorms.
