Metalhead Ned Chats with Erik of Watain on American Metal, Watain’s Performance, and More!

When I think extreme performance, Watain is the definition of that for me. I have yet to see these guys live, but after watching video's of them perform, it is one of the most awesome and disgusting things I will ever see.

It's metal as hell!

Then I got the email saying, "Hey, wanna talk to Watain?" Well, of course I do!

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday – Video Game Collection 2009

I love collecting video games! It's just a thing I enjoy to do. The quest for a cheap but rare game is a very exhilarating experience. Just imagine finding 'Earthbound' at a garage sale for $2? Good feeling right? Since 2009, my game collection has grown insanely, but here is the start of it.

Metalhead Ned’s Random Pic of the Week – Time For Sun of a Beach!

I was walking down the hallway yesterday and I couldn't help but notice that our live events manager was dressed up for a Beach Party. I don't know what exactly she was doing, but I figured it was a very random thing to stumble upon.

Metalhead Ned Ran a 5k and Finished

If you saw my previous post about me running a 5k, you will know that I am no runner. However, I decided to give it a shot. It seems like everyone is doing runs these days and there is a 5k for everything. My wife's workplace at KDL had a fun-run this past weekend, and for some crazy reason, I decided to join her on the run.

Metalhead Ned Preps For His First 5K Run

I am not really a runner, nor am I a fitness junkie. Jackie and Eric Zane are the runners at this station, so when I look at them, it can be pretty intimidating. They run 25k's, which is just crazy, but inspirational. They are also quite fit. Me on the other hand, not very fit and have a significant amount of weight, also not that much motivation. So what did I do? Signed up for a 5k of course!

Metalhead Ned’s View of All The ‘Pantera Reunion’ Chatter

Being a huge Pantera fan, I felt as though I better toss in my 2 cents on the issue. There has been a lot of talk about Phil wanting to do a Pantera reunion with Zakk Wylde on guitar, filling in the spot of the late Dimebag Darrell. Recently, Phil and Rex were joined on stage playing 'I'm Broken' with Zakk Wylde! The only missing living member is Vinnie Paul. Is a Pantera (minus Dimebag) reunion what we want though?

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday – Best Halloween Costume Ever

I know, it's really early to even thing about Halloween. It is my favorite holiday though! Dressing up in something awesome and going to countless parties. I will say though, I miss 'Trick or Treating.' Instead of a hangover, you had over 5 pounds of FREE CANDY! One year though, my Halloween costume topped many lists.

Metalhead Ned’s Random Pic of The Week – Updating to The 21st Century

I have been wanting a new computer for quite some time. My wife and I don't really have computers that run the best. They also have Windows XP loaded, which dropped support a couple months ago meaning anyone can hack my account info. I have been wanting to dive into the world of Mac, and now, I finally took the plunge.

Metalhead Ned Chats With Rob Zombie About New Movie, High School Life, and More!

When I was a kid, I had a tendency to listen to the 'pop' edge of music. I loved the 'Now' series and I still have 'Now 1.' One day though, my brother and his friends were listening to these new bands, one of them was Korn and the other, Rob Zombie. Little did I know, a little over 10 years later, I would be chatting with the man himself!
