Guitar Hero II Will Take Over Your Life

I've finally rocked out hard enough on Reverend Horton Heat's 'Psychobilly Freak Out' when I am relieved to see the crowd go mad and cheer for what seems like forever. They are ecstatic and are crying out for more. "Encore you want?" I proudly ask my fictitious mass, "Then an encore you will get." I crack my knuckles and quickly stretch out both arms as I prepare to give my audience another relentless riff. The song I am to feed to them for their final helping of succulent shred is none other than Rush's 'YYZ.' After a brief meditation I convince myself that I will in fact hit nearly every note in perfect sync and will not fail to please my fans. I am ready to shine.

It is 5:30 in the morning.

In case you've been wondering where I've been for the past week, the above vignette explains my whereabouts exactly. After gratefully receiving the video game sensation Guitar Hero II (fake plastic guitar controller and all) for
Christmas, it has been my self-proclaimed duty of late to conquer every song in the game, no matter how long it takes. If only work and personal hygiene didn't have to get in the way, I'd surely have unlocked every string snapper by now (I keed!).

In any case, I'll try to post more this week, and not let this tasty candy of a game interfere with my providing you readers with music, news, and reviews.

Or then again....we'll see.
