Moving Day

Today the movers dropped by the cove to package things that will be moved to Maryland. This was the first time I had to deal with movers by myself, but the process went very smoothly as I didn't have too many large things to have shipped down. Now my bedroom is all empty and dusty...

Introducing Guitar Band...

It looks like the war of the music video game between Guitar Hero and Rock Band is heating up as it looks like the next iteration of Guitar Hero will now include a set of drums that have cymbols as part of the game. Of course this will probably result in the Rock Band drum set being incompatible with Guitar Hero 4 and forcing rock banders who already have the RB drum set to go nuts because they already have so many musical controllers taking up space. At this point, Activision should call this game something else because it's not really Guitar Hero anymore if the focus isn't on the guitar. Having played both games, I will say that GH probably offers a better single player experience since the guitar parts are a bit more intricate than the guitar parts in RB, but RB is the king of the multiplayer stage. But still, this is pretty ridiculous that there will soon be so many different musical controllers out there...

New hoodie

After a three day stay at the body shop, Kungmobile 2 is now back in my hands as of yesterday without the scratches and dents :)  I talked to the manager on how the repairs were done, and apparently they have some magic filler that they spread on top of the hood surface after stripping the paint to fill in the dents, and then they put a new layer of paint and clear coat.  Whatever they did, they did a nice job on it as the hood and side fenders pretty much looks as good as new :)

Charles Barkley is not a role model

It's good to see that Barkley has a good sense of humor when someone plays a joke on him :P

In Preparation for VO4...

=VGI= members should listen to the Rock Band song list on Seeqpod so they know what to expect when they play :P  You might be surprised at what songs you might know (I didn't know that the song they played in that SNL skit with Will Ferrell and the cowbell was "Don't Fear the Reaper").  For those who have played Portal and finished it, I did download Still Alive, so warm up those falsetto voices if you want to sing this song :P
