Johnnie Walker

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.

Iron Maiden’s New Album Came Out Today – I’m Celebrating with Tons of Live Maiden [Video]

I'm a huge Iron Maiden fan...have been since I was a wee lad, and heard the twin guitars, the wailing vocals, and the bass that was playing interesting things! I've been following the band around while they tour, seeing them as many times as I can, and will continue to do that until I die.

The new Iron Maiden album, The Book of Souls, came out today, and I've only gotten to hear about 20 minutes of it, and so far, it's freaking EPIC!

Avatar Returns to Grand Rapids on September 13 at The Intersection [Video]

Avatar comes back to Grand Rapids on September 13th, with Gemini Syndrome, and First Decree, to rock the Intersection. Last year, I saw Avatar for the first time, at Rock on the Range. And yes, every time I'd heard the band name before seeing their videos, I always pictured them as super tall blue people playing guitars. (I'm easily influenced by the media.)

Weird Sciencey Thing Wednesday – 11,000-Year-Old Statue Is Oldest Carved Thing Ever

A while back (1894 - okay, quite a while back), archeologists found this cool wooden column in a peat bog in the Ural mountains, and they saw immediately that it was old. I mean, really old. They eventually stopped standing around saying, "That looks really old", and did some science on it to determine it was 9,500 years old.

New sciencey stuff actually shows that it's much older. It's really 11,000 years old!

What if Joffrey Was Supposed to be the Hero in Game of Thrones? [Video]

There are a couple characters in Game of Thrones that are so vile and malicious, you can't help but hate them with every fiber of your being. They never seem to do anything that would redeem them in your eyes, and you've cheered for their deaths throughout pretty much every single episode.

Joffrey and Cersei.

If you're just getting into Ghost (or Ghost B.C. as they're known here in the US), they're a great band from Sweden that dresses up like the Pope and some 'Nameless Ghouls'. It's a fun band, and they're on their third 'Papa Emeritus'.

You Know Star Wars – The Force Awakens Details Are On Lockdown When…

We're all really excited for the new Star Wars Episode VII movie coming out this December, and part of the reason is that we're not getting a lot of details from the filmmakers. We don't know the plot, we don't know how much 'canon' they're following, and how much 'fan fiction' they're incorporating. So little info is in our hands about the story that people are getting excited to find out how long the movie will be!

What?!
