Rocking out

This weekend was Emory's birthday, so we had some folks over to Llama School before taking off to see Casino Royale. We KC folk all saw Goldeneye for Emory's 16th birthday all those many years ago, so this was nice bit of symmetry. Mike brought over his N64 with Goldeneye, natch, and we played that for a bit under some ridiculously arcane rules that Emory came up with in order to make things fair. So there was drinking and good friends and Goldeneye and there's pretty much no way to go wrong with those three elements.

Casino Royale rocked incredibly hard. Just rocked and rocked and rocked.

Speaking of rocking, Paul bought Guitar Hero II for Emory for his birthday, and that game and Emory are a match made in heaven. We played it most of the day Sunday, and Emory and Leslie even went out and bought the first game with an additional guitar controller for simultaneous rocking. Emory and I thought we were doing pretty well, and then Kim totally showed us up. She has mad Guitar Hero skills.

So should you need me in the next week or so, I'll probably be spending every waking moment at strumming a plastic guitar replica, trying to hit the chord changes on Ace of Spades. I'll see you when I beat it.

If you think Ace of Spades is hard, wait until you wrap your fingers around the guitar solos in Bark at the Moon!

If you don't know about it already, allow me be the first to invite you guys to join the ranks at Score Hero. Trogdor would be disappointed if you didn't.

I will be playing Paul's groupie during your Wednesday night session.

I made it "Dark of the Moon" last night. Let's not talk about it. Also, I hate the Queens of the Stone Age with all my heart. I did beat the game, though. On medium.

I just know that, much like Frequency and Amplitude before it, there will be a point in Guitar Hero where I will not be able to advance further without fully dedicating my life to its pursuit, so I'll have to give it up or be forever swallowed by the abyss.
