Day of rest? No... Day to ROCK!

I am such a dork.

Woke up early Sunday to finish Harry Potter.  Worked on putting together the new entertainment center.  Needed to get some tools and parts for mounting the bridge portion of it.  Gotta love ikea, right?  So off to Best Buy for a longer coaxial cable for the DirecTV.

While in Best Buy, the movies and DVDs were a bit distracting.  Picked up Poison'd, a CD of Poison covering such rock classics as Squeeze Box and What I Like About You.  Also the new Bon Jovi.  (Going to see Poison with Ratt and White Lion at PNC Bank Arts Center next Saturday and Bon Jovi at the not-even-finished-being-built-yet Prudential Center in Newark in November.) Updated The Lost Boys, one of my favorite Corey movies, from VHS to DVD. 

And then the game section.  Oh the game section.

I've heard rumblings about Guitar Hero and have wanted to check it out.  Almost bought it for the PS2 but the wily sales twerp with one weird eye (ala Mad Eye Moody) somehow finagled it so that right now there's an Xbox 360 Elite sitting in that new entertainment center and I've got bags under my eyes from staying up way too late learning how to play Mother and Cherry Pie on a little plastic guitar.

It's AWESOME and waaaaaaay addictive.  So today,  I'm allowing myself one song in between whatever household tasks I have going on.

Bang your heads, my friends, bang your heads.







PS for Mimi-- also brought home Star Wars Lego thingee for the new360.

My nephew wants to get us that for our PS2 for Christmas (well, his parents would buy it for one of the grab bag names if they get one of us) so that *he* could play it. Maybe I'll tell them not to if it's so addictive. Bruce wouldn't get off the couch for sure!

I would argue about the getting off the couch thing, since you canplay standing up, but I need to go shred Pearl Jam's "Life Wasted".

I was looking at that Dance Revolution game for the same reason.

I think, if I can tear myself away from the plastic guitar, that may be my plan for tonight.
