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

Halloween Kittens Stop by the GRD Studio!

One of the more fun aspects of my job is that every Tuesday, the Humane Society stops by the GRD studio and brings us an animal that needs a home. I don't think anyone can resist a kitten right?

Especially when they are entirely black or orange! Like Halloween!

I’m Slightly Addicted to Freshii’s Teriyaki Twist Bowl

Sometimes I forget lunch at work. Actually that happens quite frequently. I get up in the morning, forget to make my lunch the previous night, get to work, and realize that once again I have to blow money on food that I have a bunch of at home. However, there are sometimes that I am 100% OK with forgetting to bring food.

The end result? Freshii's Teriyaki Twist bowl.

Games I Own That Suck: Friday the 13th (NES)

For the past few years, I have always posted about video games that are good in a weekly (well, sometimes weekly) article named 'Games To Try Before You Die.' I have always been a happy video game player, but when I looked at my game collection. I realized I have a lot of games that are just awful. Why do I own these? Why am I attracted to crappy games? Starting today, I'm going to post about games that you really SHOULD'NT try before you die.

Games To Try Before You Die: Blackthorne (SNES/PC/32X)

BlizzCon is coming up this year and everyone is really excited about Warcraft, Starcraft, etc. Before there was the juggernaut that was WoW or Starcraft, there was this game that Blizzard released on home consoles that just kicked ass. It hasn't been looked at for years, and if they rebooted this game, that would be pretty awesome.

Shopping For New CD’s is Pretty Sad These Days

I went to go and pick up the new Slipknot album at Best Buy in Grandville a couple of days ago. I remember when I could go there and sift through thousands of CD's to find something obscure, but these days, that's just not possible.
