(Me with Shinedown. I'm the one in the middle.)
I know you might not know me, but what can I say about myself that hasn't already been said (or yelled at me out of a car window)? Fatty...yeah. I'm a little chubby. Smart-ass...usually...but I prefer sarcastically inclined. You’re an ass...sometimes (most of the time). In general, I’m a normal early-thirties male except for one thing. I love music, movies, sports, and women (just like the other guys)...just not beer. But I do wear beer shirts to give the impression that I drink and that I’m cool. I have a house, a wife, a cat, a bad case of road rage when mood hits me, and an on-again/off-again addiction to video games (NCAA Football and MVP 07 NCAA Baseball). Everything else is pretty much explained by my chosen profession…radio guy. It’s the only job I know where you can dress like a slacker college student well into your 40’s, hang out in bars every night of the week, get lots of free stuff, and get paid to do it (albeit not much, but it pays the bills…almost). So, there I am. And please stop yelling at me from your car window. I can’t hear you over the roar of your Pinto anyway.
As a child of the 80's, I love all kinds of music. Rock (of course), Hip-Hop, Alternative, Country...everything. Well, not everything. I hate classical music.
(My Favorite Band)
Here are a few more artists/bands I like: Counting Crows, Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains, System of a Down, Tool, Soundgarden, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kanye West, The Streets, Fountains of Wayne, Hank Williams, Hank Williams Jr., Hank III, Johnny Cash, Shooter Jennings, and many more.
I grew up in the Ohio Valley, so it's a given that I like watching some hoops. I also like football, baseball, and soccer of all kinds, but unlike anyone else you know, my sports passion is college baseball.

When I'm not listening to music or watching sports, I have something in the DVD player, be it a movie or a television show (I'm never home to watch TV shows when they are actually on, so I have to buy what I want to see on DVD).
Movies - High Fidelity, Wedding Crashers, Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Almost Famous, Singles, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Old School, Anchorman, The Big Lebowski, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Daredevil, Thor, etc.
TV - The Family Guy, Man vs. Food, Lie To Me, Castle, That 70's Show, The Andy Griffith Show, One Tree Hill, etc.
And yes, I know some of those shows have been cancelled. Doesn't mean I stopped liking them.
The Ten Club- Home of the Pearl Jam Fanclub (it obviously needs to be at the top of the list)
U of L Baseball - Home of the U of L Baseball Cards
Rivals - Home to the Rivals Network, one of the biggest college sports sites on the web

IMDB - Movies, movies, and more movies
antiMusic - Great source for music news
I had a hankering for "Dirty Frank". Had to break-out Lost Dogs.
Sons of Anarchy
I'm a little behind this season (about three eps), but it has been great so far. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
I saw part of this on AMC last week, so I decided to check-out the entire flick. I'm a liittle sorry I did.
Jackie Earle Hailey's Krueger lacks the humor of the Robert Englund version. And while making Freddy a child molester may scare people with kids more than the original storyline, it just disgusts me.
It's not a terrible movie, but the original is MUCH better.
Watched most of the first season of Earl when it was on, but I kind of lost track of it after that.
I'm now two-and-a-half seasons in. Not too bad.
Sword Art Online
I got so hooked on the anime, and now I've read the first three books. Onward and upward to #4.
Pearl Jam - Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
Looks like Paul Bearer (real name Bill Moody), on the of the best managers in WWE history, has pasted away. Hard to believe he was only 58 years old. The details of his death are not yet know.
Here is a video I found when he was still the creepy version of the character in '92…
