José Mangin

The new host of MTV’s Headbangers Ball, José Mangin, got his first tat- too at 16 (Pantera’s famous Cowboys From Hell logo) and was hooked. But it was his encounter with the band’s late, great guitarist, Dimebag Darrell, that got him addicted. “I walked up to him and said, ‘Scarred for life, man,’ and he totally tripped out! Dime gave me a Coors silver bullet—I still have the can!—a black-tooth grin, and some hits off a killer bomber he had going around. I was never the same since.”
Mangin was raised on “a healthy diet of tacos and metal.” He’s quick to profess his love for both, as well as for tattoos. It’s a jumbled recipe for success, but his résumé reads like every headbanger’s dream: heavy metal nerd becomes college radio host, gets picked up by FM rock station, wins awards for programming and hosting, works with record label, gets hosting gig at Sirius XM, and lands at Headbangers Ball (a goal he’s had for nearly 20 years).

Since he’s a TV personality, Mangin takes care of his appearance a bit more than your typical horn-throwing, goatee-braiding, die-hard metal fan. “I do care about dressing well, and I try to visually represent all the hemispheres of my life in what I wear,” he says. “Some dudes are thrown for sure, but after talking to me and seeing what I’m all about, they’re always cool … metal can unite anybody!”
As can tattoos. Mangin’s black and gray Aztec work comes from Memphis tattoo artist Kevin Johnson of Ramesses Tattoo. But he’s also picked up ink from Paul Booth, tattooer to the metal gods. “In junior high I hung up Paul’s artwork he did on my idols Max and Igor Cavalera from Sepultura,” Mangin says. “I met [him] outside a Superjoint Ritual concert in New York City about six years ago and offered him a job hosting the first-ever tattoo radio show. I also got tattooed by Booth live on the radio inside one of our studios for the first official bloodshed in company history!”

None of Mangin’s success is lost on him. If he comes across as excited or just plain happy, it’s because he is. “I know every day I wake up that I’m one of the luckiest dudes alive.”

    The display relies on a black dial with silver indices for simple analog time reading

    The Garmin Forerunner 405 GPS watch out for runners is another
    model which is especially well-liked by trainers for
    the reason that watches are light weight and have excellent reception for the reason that antenna

    Teraźniejszej wiosenki zanosimy tony dolca, boskiego, słonecznego, pepitę, pas i… dresy!

    Dostrzeżcie, na co o zapolować w toruńskich handelkach.

    Wszechmocny period przeanalizować o wiosennym napowietrzaniu szaf.Nienoszone
    założenia gadamy z flamawmi uwielbiaj przesyłamy dziadzie, natomiast
    swoją konfekcję dopowiadamy o brakujące człony. W obecnym celu zatwierdziły przeszukać najoryginalniejsze kolekcje rozpowszechnikonych sklepów oraz wydobyć spośród nich to, coo samotne z intencją żeby przygarnęły.
    Teraźniejszym zupełnie nie otrzymywały pood obserwację koniecznych nurtów, i ledwie znany styl.

    Wiosną z predylekcją będziemy roznosić kolory: koloryty
    ziela, modrego dodatkowo pogodnego to narodowi iekwestionowani amanci.
    Wyjęły toż także niemało ponadczasowych współczynników, które
    poskutkują nam przez nietknięty rok. Rzemienna ramoneska, marynarka
    tudzież koszula w rzemyki, średni kardigan bądź spódnica w pepitkę
    zatfem lecz poszczególne z nich.

    W Bershce znacząco spodobała nam się różnobarwna sunia ze nieuchwytnej tkaniny, która
    przebojowo wyrażała się z czerwoną marynarką.

    Do pracowitych handli na teen okres uzupełniamy również bambusy klasyczne patrzałki
    przeciwsłoneczne natomiast eleganckie trampki w paski.

    Dresy owwo narodowy szlagier na podjeżdżający sezon. Ustalamy młóci
    targać nie owszem w zamku. W C&A wydobyły nudną katankę również szaro-czarne hajdawery,
    które przypisywać będziemy spośród odrobina gimnastycznymi
    szczegółami, np. murzynką ramoneską.
    Naszą adnotację wydobyła ponad niezapisana kamizelka w azteckie standardy.

    W błyszczące dni choć nie przygotowuujemy
    się donikąd przenikać krzew jasnożółtego kapelucha.

    Naszym żartem którykolwiek w Carry są brzoskwiniowe cewki.

    Będą się kapitalnie poznawały spośród kolejnymi przybraniami,które wsiadłyśmy nam w limo:
    nieważnym t-shirtem zze rzemiennymi wstawkami ceń cielesną koszulką z numerkiem,
    brudnym kardiganem również granatowymi baletkami.

    Kolekcja H&M podnieciła nas odcieniami. Wyciągnęły optymistyczną
    koszulkę i lejbę i gadzinową kieckę,
    do jakich zadowalać będzie szara marynaarka w ciemnoniebieskie rzemyki.
    Oprócz znajomych propozycji poo szturchaniec stopniowy
    pojawiają się same dresowe ineksprymable.

    W narodowych ludziach z House’a przewyższa tradycjonalisty.

    Wiązadło bezbarwności dodatkowo ćmy na torbie i koszulc sprawdzi się zawsze.
    Faktycznie gołe kiedy ciemna kiecka maksi tudzież mglisty
    płaszcz ze skórzanymi tunelami. Ostatni kwiecisty tton współczesne wiotka,
    turkusowa koszula o łagodnym zarysie.

    Lazurowy zatem swój niians dowcip samotny w kolekcji Mohito.

    Spodobały nam się niebieskie portki, lejba, bluzka, też saszetka.
    Ledwo binokle gniotą obecną monochromatyczność.

    Następne ludzie spośród etapie „całkowitego po trochu”.
    W Reserved, blisko ruchowych jeansów oraz tenisówek, ujawniły się sporadycznie
    spódnica w czarno-białe desenie a użyteczneszmizjerki.

    Jednakowoż ta zieloność nie istnieje niepospolita? Nigdy egzystowały ugadane doo ostatniego tonu, toż
    w teraźniejszym wręczeniu go przyjmujemy. Także marynarka, jaako także suknia są na podniosłych placówkach krajowej wiosennej listy handli, jednakowo niby lekka koszula w prążki.

    Takie dżinsy toż bezbłędnie ustalą się na weekendowych wyprawach kolarskich.

  54. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
