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.

With all the llama on llama action in Thursday's news, CNN decided it needed some deeper insight into the minds of the rampaging beasts that were terrifying the streets.

So, who did CNN bring in to offer unique insight?

Hardcore Power Rangers Bootleg Brings Realism and Violence to Your Childhood [Video]

I was never a Power Rangers kid. Sorry, I know it's sacrilege to say or write, but it wasn't something I ever got into. But if it had been like this, I would have totally been into it!

Take the modern action style, throw in some Transformers, lots of violence, and you've got a pretty cool Power Rangers show!

Just in time for the Power Rangers reboot, too!

Awesome Video Lets You See an Explosion Shockwave [Video]

Okay, this is freaking bad ass. You see a lot of explosion videos, and even a lot of cool slo-mo explosion videos, but this is the first one I've seen where you can actually SEE the shockwave distorting the air as it travels!

Some crazy British guys used some PE4, which is a British military high explosive, so don't go trying this at home. Ever.

Nickelback Rocked a Packed Crowd at the Van Andel in Grand Rapids [Video]

Nickelback's "No Fixed Address" tour hit the Van Andel arena in Grand Rapids last night with a slightly scaled back production than I've seen before, but still played a great show, and kept the crowd total into it!

The Pretty Reckless opened the show with a solid set, that included "Heaven Knows", "Follow Me Down", and "F***** Up World", and more!

Nickelback hit the stage nice and loud with their latest single, "Million Miles an Hour", and then proceeded to play a million hits an hour, it seemed.

The Pretty Reckless Rocked the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids with Nickelback [Video]

The Nickelback "No Fixed Addess" tour rolled into the Van Andel arena last night, and I was pretty excited to see a full set from The Pretty Reckless opening the show! I'd seen a bit of their show last year at Rock on the Range, but didn't catch it all.

This time, I caught the set, and they were really good, even if they did seem a bit tethered to the center of the stage.

Violent Leaked ‘Frozen 2′ Footage Shows Story Going in Different Direction [Video]

Frozen is probably still the biggest movie out there -- with countless children still singing the damn songs and parents still contemplating suicide every time they hear the music.

I'm not sure if a sequel is really being worked on (it probably is), but there's a great claymation video that's surfaced that would be a great scene from it!

‘Kung Fury’ Looks Like The Best Movie Ever! [Video]

Trolling around on the internet can either get you into trouble, or land right smack in the middle of the best stuff you've ever seen!

Luckily, this morning's surf-session landed me in the awesomeness of KUNG FURY!

It's a project that was up for funding on Kickstarter, and had a goal of $200,000. It not only reached that goal, but tacked on another $430,000 on top!

Danish Archer Does Amazing Things with Bow and Arrow [Video]

Think Legolas from The Lord of the Rings, or Hawkeye from The Avengers. That's how ridiculous this guy is with a bow and arrow. I mean, Jesus, the guy CATCHES AN ARROW FIRED AT HIM AND FIRES IT BACK!

Do NOT f--- with this guy.
