You Can Never Win Or Lose If You Don’t Run The Race

March 30, 2010 at 9:38 pm (Rock Band) (, , , , , , , , )

Have been feeling the onset of another ear infection for weeks now, and I guess my weakened post-PAX immune system couldn’t hold out any longer, because man, my ear has been freaking killing me all day! Add that pain to my hoarse voice & allergies, and you have a condition that is in NO WAY conducive to singing, that’s for sure! Stubborn as I am, I couldn’t let illness stand in the way of the day’s FC, especially since I’m still 3 songs behind because of PAX! I chose “Love My Way” thinking it would be easy on my strained voice, which it was, but the session ended up grinding on for almost an hour and a half regardless. This was, of course, because I wanted a better-sounding take than the top-scoring run I’d finished about 25 minutes in. I swear, I make things so much harder on myself than they need to be, and yet, I can’t seem to stop myself even when I KNOW nobody else would care…argh!

I Want Your Love And I Want Your Revenge

March 29, 2010 at 2:06 pm (Rock Band) (, , , , , , , , , )

You may or may not know this about me, but I’ve been avoiding this whole Lady Gaga phenomenon, and never even listened to a single one of her songs. Yes, I HAVE been living under a rock, thank you! Anyway, all that changed this weekend while I was at PAXEast watching the final round of the con’s score-based Rock Band tournament, when the Enforcer in charge selected “Bad Romance” as the tiebreaker track to determine whether VVV Adrenaline or Interrobang would take the grand prize. After watching Interrobang’s rendition (with internetguy87 on vox, though I didn’t realize it was him until an hour afterwards, d’oh!), the song became irrevocably stuck in my head, and I knew I’d have to make it my first post-PAXEast FC. BTW, grats to VVV Adrenaline for taking 1st place in the tourney, and a special shout-out to all the members of the semi-finalist & finalist bands! You guys were all awesome…and very very VERY focused, hehe!

Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind Anytime

March 25, 2010 at 9:31 pm (Rock Band) (, , , , , , , , )

Alrighty folks, here’s the deal. I was going to try to stockpile a few extra FCs this week so I could update the blog while in Boston for PAX East this weekend, but I didn’t get around to it. Oopsie! Time sure has a way of slipping away from me these days, especially since the onset of my latest bout of insomnia. Anyway, while I’m hanging with all the cool kids at PAX (ok ok, you’re still cool even if you won’t be there, happy now?) I’m gonna try to squeeze in a couple of FCs on the official Rock Band stage, and I’ll do a few extra vids/posts after I get back to make up for the 3 days I’ll be out of town. Sound good? Yeah, I thought you’d agree! See y’all after PAX East! Wooooooo, I’m going to PAX! :-)

It Won’t Be Long And I’ll Be There

March 20, 2010 at 9:26 pm (Rock Band) (, , , , , , , , )

(Not so) fun factoid of the day: there are 3 whole – and continuous – minutes of tambourine hits in the middle of this song, during which my dog decided to climb onto the back of the sofa and sniff my head. Fortunately, he wasn’t able to break my concentration, ’cause I’d have been sooooo annoyed if his olfactory investigation resulted in a missed hit! Long instrumental solos might be great fun for all the plastic guitarists, bassists & drummers out there, but for us vocalists…BORING!
