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

It's even gotten to the point where I want to have at least the first 10 seasons on DVD! Now that dream has become a reality, as the legendary Simpson Family will be making it over to the internet via FXX.

Games To Try Before You Die: Sonic The Hedgehog 3 (Genesis)

Good things they say come in the three's, and with Sonic the Hedgehog, that is what happened. When Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis were at a console war, Mario and Sonic were the rival's of the 90's. Mario had some stellar titles and Sonic was kicking it with Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Then Sonic the Hedgehog 3 came around and kept giving Sonic that extra boost to keep in the competition.

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday – My EMU Dorm Room

Oh man, College was a blast! I miss it everyday! The friends I made, the freedom I had, etc. It was my first official time that I moved away from everything in my hometown. I went to Eastern Michigan University. Regardless of all the bad press this place receives, I loved every minute I was there and I got the true college experience out of it, meaning that I lived in the dorms.

402 Buell Hall!
