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

Games To Try Before You Die: Resident Evil (Gamecube)

Resident Evil is still one of my favorite game series' that exist. Over the years though, it has really lost it's 'Survival Horror' roots and has become more of a shooter. The first game was filled with cheezy voice overs and clunky controls, but still was a lot of fun. At the time it was scary, but then other games really trampled it on horror. Resident Evil was starting to lose it's horror edge, then this game came around.

Studio 28 Making Its Way to Memories

A little over a month ago, it was confirmed that the building that once was Studio 28 would be demolished.

I went over to the old Wyoming building on 28th Street SW that held many memories for me to check and see how the demolition was coming.

The building now is unrecognizable.
