The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

The Guitar Heroes Are Coming

Ok, blah blah blah, I haven't posted in a while ... I know.

Anyway, I was in Cleveland for the weekend hanging out with my girlfriend and her family. At one point on Sunday I had a chance to play a game that I'd been interested in for a while, Guitar Hero.

I'd played the game briefly at a Best Buy before but the controller was kind of damaged I think and there were a number of people waiting in line for it as well so I kind of quit right away when I started sucking.

This time I was lucky enough to get to play the entire song Cochise by Audioslave and it was a blast.

That's why when I got a $25 gift card from Amazon in addition to my $50 one I already had, I knew that it was time. Time for me to finally order Guitar Hero.

According to the confirmation email I received the order has been placed successfully and should be arriving on Thursday. Perhaps Chuckles will come over and we will rock out in a virtual guitar way.

That is all. Rock on.

Also, why didn't you have the game when I could have virtually rocked even harder!

One time, I rocked so hard, ninjas jumped out of the shadows and slew the entire audience.

I think that the only appropriate response to this comment would be something that involves Chuck Norris. Unfortunately I don't have a witty line about roundhouse kicks coming to my mind at the moment.

I thinnk you don't have a comment, teh, because you have taken to many Chuck Norris roundhouse kicks to the mind.

check out You Tube. There are about 50 vids of people playing Ann Althouse's favorite guitar jam on Guitar Hero.
