Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday: Interviewing Rob Zombie [Video]

Definitely one of the highlights of my life was being able to interview the man that introduced me to the world of heavy metal. I can't 100% credit him with that, but when I was younger, my brother bought Korn: Follow the Leader and Rob Zombie: Hellbilly Deluxe, I quickly fell in love with the albums.

I never in a million years think I would be chatting with Rob Zombie.

Metalhead Ned Chats with Grand Rapids Symphony on Upcoming Video Game Concert [Video]

On February 7th, DeVos Performance Hall will be filled with the music of video games. Music that I am sure if you play older or newer video games, you will recognize the moment you hear it. It is some of the most celebrated music in history, and it overall just kicks ass!

Sean & Sam of the GR Symphony stopped by the WGRD studios to talk video game music with station nerd Metalhead Ned.

Metalhead Ned Searches for an Autographed Christina Aguilera Trading Card [Video]

Remember when trading cards were a big thing? You would buy a folder filled with plastic inserts that you could place your cards in to show off to your friends. Baseball and Basketball cards were big hits. To cash in on the success of sports cards, things like Movies, Musicians, and even television shows showed up in the trading card industry.

I went to a local game store that had some leftover 1990's relics, I bought a few packs, and hoped for the big money.

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday: Interviewing Mastodon [Video]

Another throwback Thursday! It's hard to believe that this interview is over 2 years old! Mastodon, Opeth, and Ghost were rocking at The Intersection in 2012 to a sold out crowd, and I was given the chance to interview Brann Dailor.

From what I was told, I had to wear the Mastodon mask during the interview...I later found out, that was false information.

Metalhead Ned Gets an Addictive Virus from Dr. Mario

You may or may not have heard of my podcast that I am a part of called The SNaCK, but were a bunch of gaming/comic book/movie nerds. We enjoy talking about anything from our childhoods and today's stuff as well. Since we love the old school stuff, we love to play old Nintendo games.

Lately though, we caught a virus, and that virus is Dr. Mario.

Nintendo Has Me Wrapped Around Their Finger! [Video]

Why is it that every time Nintendo announces something, I have to own it? I owe it to my Nintendo Fanboy-ism on this, but yesterdays Nintendo Direct video had me excited for a lot of things, but one certain item stood out.

I already own one of these, but why do I need to buy another one?
