I have been more
gone than here this week. That can be taken in many ways. I haven't
been posting, I haven't been near a computer (or game console), and
I haven't had a good sleep...all for the last seven days.
Most of this comes
from a combination of good weather (meaning outdoor chores, like
lawn mowing and garden planting) and having a new puppy (which means
a lot of chaos in the house training area). Put those two factors
together and you have one chaotic week. However, while I haven't
been up to anything I'd post about (unless planting seedlings now is
"geek"), and despite not having any real time for games (about an
hour in the last week), I can post.
The post comes in
the form of a
damned fun sounding Rock Band DLC set for next week. This
includes a seven pack for the REO Speedwagon / Styx Tour '09 Pack
with three songs for each band and one big collaboration song
($2/track or $11 for the pack) and a three pack of Hautewerk
($2/track or $5.50 for the pack).
As for the oldies,
in the Styx/REO Speedwagon set, they will be damned fun. I mean it's
sometimes cheesy (especially with Styx), but it's also some great
old school rock. I'll take fun music anytime over complicated or
annoying (which is how I see Chinese Democracy) any day.
