Metalhead Ned

“Hey, the name is Ned, but you can call me Ned. Born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI. Went to Eastern Michigan University for radio broadcasting, so I suppose it worked out for me.

I can’t get over the fact that the pop SURGE is gone, I play so many damn video games that I may steal a car and kill hookers. I play guitar, sing, and all that good crap, so chicks kinda dig me I think. My musical taste vary from Pantera to Nobuo Uematsu.

Things I enjoy: Lava lamps, I have a man crush on Dimebag Darrell, Pizza, Beavis & Butt-Head, Star Wars, Schwarzenegger movies, and anything that is claimed as “bad ass” as well.

Tune in every weekend Sat. 7-Mid/Sun. 10-3  for stuff such as a video game talk, heavy metal, and other crap that will make you stay up all night playing Super Metroid.

Get to the choppa!

Schedule

Sa 7:00 pm - 12:00 am
Su 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Legacy That is ‘Friday the 13th’ [Video]

Every time the 13th of the month lands on a Friday, people always make some sort of big deal about it. Like there is going to be some sort of bad thing that will happen on Friday the 13th. Where did all of this superstition come from? I don't know, maybe it goes deeper than what I think, but I imagine it's because of these fine horror flicks named...

What is Your Favorite Horror Movie?

Halloween, the time of the year where scares are encouraged. You never watch a Christmas movie during Summer do you? Well maybe you do, but I classify you are weird. One type of movie that brings out the scares though are Horror films, and there a lot of good ones. Which one is your favorite though?

Five Video Games with Amazing Intros

When you pop in a video game, there is always an intro level or a full motion video sequence that just 'sucks you in' to play this video game. A moment in the game that just makes you yell, "YEA, LET'S DO THIS!"

Here is a list of games that made that happen for me, and just MADE me want to play that game.

The Evil Within Hits Store Shelves Today! [Video]

Finally! A game that I am actually excited about! It has been quite some time since I have been actually excited for a game to be released.

The only games that seem to really wow me these days are Nintendo games. Why? They seem original, or at least are improvements over their previous release which were already good.

This new game though named The Evil Within just looks awesome.

Hyrule Warriors (WiiU) is Pretty Awesome [Video]

I was finally able to pick up the latest entry into the Zelda series. If you stick to WGRD.com and on air, you will know that I am quite the Zelda fan. However, this is a first of its kind when it comes to the Zelda series. Koei Tecmo and Nintendo teamed up to create a pretty awesome version of Dynasty Warriors.

Metalhead Ned’s Flashback Friday – Last Years Halloween Costume

Even though Halloween is my favorite time of the year, I never really put that much effort into my Halloween costumes. Why? I never really have the time to do it! Someday I wish to create an epic Halloween costume like you see at Comic Conventions, but I never have the time to do it. Last year though, I went a little original with it.

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday – Make 7 Up Yours!

Lately at WGRD, we have been doing our High School Athlete of the Week. This past week, the recognized individual was from Kenowa Hills, which happens to be my alma mater! It was cool to see someone from my old school collide with my career. Which brought my back to my high school days, and dug up this old picture.
