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 and become an 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.

Should the Washington Redskins Change Their Name?

Football season is here, and everyone is getting set for the end of the meaningless games, and the beginning of the real season.  Go Texans!  Sorry, I'm from Texas.

One off-season controversy that we heard a lot about this past year, is the movement to change the name of the Washington Redskins to something "less offensive to Native Americans".

First off, maybe we should make sure it's actually offensive to them.

Check Out WGRD’s New Studio – It’s Done!

You've heard us all talking about the new studio we finally got to get into this week, and how we're all getting used to it.  It's really cool, and really open, which is unusual for a lot of stations.

Most of the time, you're buried behind a million computer screens, hoping the other people in the room are still there, and you're not talking to yourself.

Aussie Comedian Says What We All Think About the Westboro Morons Picketing Robin Williams’ Funeral

A lot of people are still sad about the passing of Robin Williams last week, and the family wants to have a small, private funeral service for the genius.

But the asshats in the Westboro Baptist Church are threatening to protest at the service.

Could it be possible for us to hate them any more?  I'm not sure it is.

Amazing Honest Flight Video Relays How We All Feel on Planes Now

Flying has become a crazed cattle-call, and you never know what you're going to get once you get to the airport.  When you're on the plane, things can get freaking weird!

This video pretty much covers all of it: from the random pilot ramblings, to the screaming babies, to the drunk asshat...even the obnoxiously loud strangers!  You want people shoving past you to stand in the aisles, waiting for 15 minutes before they can move off the plane?  It's here.
