Another boring ROCK BAND entry

I played a few more songs on Expert at 100%. I’m going through and doing all the easy ones — or at least getting gold stars. I still can’t get past about 84% on Green Grass And High Tides… Perhaps I will have to play Caitlin’s various brain training games to get farther.

My better songs I’m ranked around #100 on the worldwide rankings. I figure that’s pretty good. I’m #15 on “Gone Away”, but because that song just came out I imagine that ranking will drop down to a similar rank as the rest over the next couple of weeks. Tomorrow Saira and perhaps others are coming by so we’ll finally have a full band, which I’m looking forward to. Oh, what a small world I live in and what humble dreams I have nowadays.

Nefarious said to me the other day that it was OK with her if I cut my mustache but that she wanted me to grow my beard as long as possible, ZZ Top style (she did not reference ZZ Top of course, but she described what she meant). Not sure if that’ll happen — it grows in to this length pretty fast but then it sort of hits a wall I think… Yes, I’m bored and Caitlin is working late today.

    That Gone Away song is overplayed and I truly dislike it. *hates*

    Just noticed the finger tattoos. Looks like rock band is a way of life! I sell it at my store but never really give it a second look. I gotta admit though I’m more of an xbox 360 person.
    Let us know if you need testers for the new community site.

    Let’s just imagine for a moment that Rock Band has become an olympic sport for 2012, and Shannon has been chosen to represent his home team.

    Would those tattoos be considered performance enhancing and therefore qualify for disqualification?

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
