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

ToeJam & Earl to Make an Indie Return, Needs Your Help [Video]

In the early '90's, a very strange video game by the name of Toejam & Earl came out for Sega Genesis. You played as either ToeJam or Earl, or played 2 player Co-op and played as ToeJam & Earl. Through it's crazy exterior, it is one of the funnest games of all time!

The first game garnered 2 sequels, and has been missing from the gaming landscape for a long time.

Older Episodes of ‘The Simpsons’ Are Way Better Than New Ones [Video]

The Simpsons have been around for more than 20 years, making it the longest running animated sitcom of all time.

It's hard to remember a time when the yellow family was not on our television. During the '90s, though, The Simpsons was at the height of its popularity and everyone knew who the Fox show's characters were.

After two decades, though, is the show still as funny as it was years ago?

I really like this game! However a few nights ago, I remembered that the last level was pretty difficult. The funny thing about this level is that I can beat it, but it takes me a decent amount of tries.

Can I repeat history?
