Ted Nugent Wants You to Know How Great Ted Nugent Is

Just look at this thing.
Ted Nugent--everyone's favorite gun-toting, POTUS hating archery enthusiast--will release a double DVD/CD on October 22nd. It's called ULTRALIVE BALLISTICROCK and BOOM! your mind just got blown. The live footage contained within--from an August, 14, 2011 show at Penn's Peak--was captured by seven cameras, a surprisingly low number, given this is BALLISTICROCK we're talking about. Tucked away in the promotional email about the project is an attachment containing notable Ted Nugent facts and career milestones. It is a glorious slice of Self Importance. We present them all, annotated, after the jump.
