Game Store Confessions: ‘I’m Gonna Puke, I’m Gonna Puke’

Time for another fine example of a Game Store Confession.

This will always be one of my favorite days while working in the mall of Grandville.

I say this sarcastically speaking mind you. Working in the mall was beyond a nightmare.

This certain day was the definition of that.

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday: End of an Era

When I was younger, like around 2006, I was in a band called Groundswitch.

At the time, Pop Punk was pretty popular, easy to play, and was easy to write for. So why not create a Pop Punk band right? Chicks seemed to dig it! Plus I was balls deep into Green Day's 'American Idiot' so I was heavily inspired by that.

Today, 9 years ago, was the final day of my first ever band.

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday: Gettin’ Drunk and Saying ‘I Love You’

I have only been in one or two bands, and both of them were a lot of fun.

Someday I hope to be in a new one! When will that happen? I have no freakin' clue, but I hope within the next couple years.

In the meantime, time to reflect on one of my fond memories of my old band named 'The Drunk I Love You's'

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday: Gross Ass Dorm Shower

Living in a dorm room can either be a lot of fun or a living nightmare.

Fortunately I was one of those few that loved my roommates, and we all continue to be friends to this day.

While our friendships grew, so did the mildew and gross-ness of our dorm room shower.

Game Store Confessions: Supposed Guy with Gold in a Box

I have realized that when I used to work at a local game store, that I used to post on Facebook when someone odd, strange, or just plain annoying would come into the store.

I have worked at a few game stores in my life. One of them a well known company, and the other a local business here in town.

Over the years, I have met some interesting people, and I think I want to start sharing these stories with you.

‘The Sims’ is Still One of the Best Games of All Time [Video]

One of the biggest PC games of all time is 'The Sims.' A game where you take control of little people, build a house, get a job, have a kid, etc.

A life simulator essentially.

When this game came out, it blew a lot of peoples minds. We were no longer building cities, ant colonies, or towers. We were building homes, placing appliances, and then living a simulated life.

How Much Time Do you Waste Checking Your Phone? [Video]

Before the world of smart phones hit shelves, the only way you could check the internet was by physically sitting on your laptop or desktop. Meaning you had to take time out of your day and sit in front of a screen.

Now, the screen and internet follows you everywhere on your smart phone.

The big question is, how much time do you spend tapping away on your phone?

Early Memories of my First Computer [Video]

Believe it or not, before everyone had a smart phone, owning an actual computer was a luxury.

I can't think of one household that I know, friend and family, that does not own a computer. I am not just talking a game console, phone, etc. I'm talking a hardcore desktop computer. If computers didn't exist, I wouldn't even have a job I bet.

Do you remember your first computer though?
