Rock Band

This has become one of my latest obsessions. (I say "one of" because "Twilight" takes the cake when it comes to my obsessions right now.) Hooper's mom got me Rock Band for our Wii for Christmas and we have had so much fun with it. At first it began as just a fun game that the two of us enjoyed, then it became a game that we played with my brother and sister-in-law also, and now it has turned into something the four of us would rather do on a Friday or Saturday night than anything else. When my mom offers to give them a free night and babysit for them, we usually just send the kids to my mom's and we all four play Rock Band for hours on end. It started out with just our guitar and our drums. Nobody dared to attempt the microphone. Then Anna and Eddie got Rock Band for themselves so that we could all play without toting the entire setup back and forth so often. Now we use the drums, the bass, the guitar, and yes, the microphone too. We laugh, cuss, get booed off the stage, and have our own system down- we rotate instruments after two songs, and the singer gets to pick the songs. haha. Last night we played for a while and I had to sing "Livin' On A Prayer" by Bon Jovi and it was so hard for me to hit the notes. I picked the song because I know it rather well, but apparently singing for myself in the car and singing with a small group is different. I like the guitar okay, like the bass, the microphone makes me nervous but excited at the same time, but the drums are home to me when it comes to Rock Band. They are my favorite. If you have never played Rock Band, you need to come over and play it with us, or find someone else who has it and play with them. It really is great. LONG LIVE TASTY PANTS!

I have watched people play, but have never played myself...it does seem fun, I just know I would be horrible. I'm just good at games, period! I'm glad you've found an obsession though. Imagine how fun rock band would be if you could play piano with Edward? LOL.
