Metalhead Ned Ran a 5k and Finished

If you saw my previous post about me running a 5k, you will know that I am no runner. However, I decided to give it a shot. It seems like everyone is doing runs these days and there is a 5k for everything. My wife's workplace at KDL had a fun-run this past weekend, and for some crazy reason, I decided to join her on the run.

Kid’s Reacting to the Apple II Makes Me Feel Old

Here is another edition of 'Kid's React to Technology!' When I was a kid, we used the Apple II Computer in our classes. We didn't really use them that much because we wrote everything on paper, imagine that! I did know how to use DOS quite well to boot up Hard and Floppy disk, but seeing kids these days react to old tech is quite humorous.

Metalhead Ned Preps For His First 5K Run

I am not really a runner, nor am I a fitness junkie. Jackie and Eric Zane are the runners at this station, so when I look at them, it can be pretty intimidating. They run 25k's, which is just crazy, but inspirational. They are also quite fit. Me on the other hand, not very fit and have a significant amount of weight, also not that much motivation. So what did I do? Signed up for a 5k of course!

Metalhead Ned’s Random Pic of The Week – Updating to The 21st Century

I have been wanting a new computer for quite some time. My wife and I don't really have computers that run the best. They also have Windows XP loaded, which dropped support a couple months ago meaning anyone can hack my account info. I have been wanting to dive into the world of Mac, and now, I finally took the plunge.

Free Beer & Hot Wings: 50 Things Science Can’t Explain

We live in an extraordinary time.

We can send a space ship to Mars and communicate with it as easily as making a phone call or sending a text. We can regrow body parts in a petri dish. The sky is the limit on what we can accomplish. Science is pretty great.

But as great as science is, it still can't explain EVERYTHING.

Metalhead Ned’s Random Pic of the Week – WGRD Throwback

I went surfing through my normal stops for records a few days ago and went through a couple of the CD's. I could use this picture for a Throwback Thursday, but I felt as though it fit the Random Pic portion better.

Time to fly back a long time ago and look at some of the CD's that WGRD used to sell that featured local artist and everything!

Metalhead Ned’s Student Film From 2009 [NSFW]

I was sitting with Jackie in my office this morning and we were talking about our time in College. She went to Ferris State University and I went to Eastern Michigan University. We had pretty much the same classes, which included a Film class. I then remembered that back in 2009, I filmed a movie named 'Man Competition' that makes you wonder what the heck we were thinking showing this to our class.

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday – Cleanup in Aisle 5

I have worked in retail for a number of years. When I wasn't dealing with horrible customers that felt as though I owed them the world, I was worried about how the store looked. Specifically when I worked at GameStop in Rivertown Crossings Mall. I think people moved games and had fun by putting them in the wrong spot so I would get pissed trying to find it, and I would get PISSED! Then this happened.
