I was over video games when controllers went from two buttons to something resembling a ten-key punch.

Then, last night, my 15 year old opened his birthday present .

Life may never be the same.

(And yes, son, I will pay for your therapy.) 

In the meantime: Rock on party people. 

Game Spot Score 9.0 Editor’s Choice:  Rock Band does a superb job of bringing out the wannabe rock star in all of us, and creates one of the best party-game experiences of all time.  –

  4. Update: Ice Cold Mother and the Radical Panic made enough $$ to buy a van and hit the road. While Icy Em enjoyed a nice glass of wine one night after rocking Chicago, no doubt working on her Behind the Music Story, TRP had a meeting. The word Diva was bantered about. Ultimately TRP decided it was time to part ways with the Ice Cold Mother due to “artistic differences”.

    They’ll be back. They’re nothing without me…..
