This too shall pass.....
Over the weekend I had a few hours to do some errands. Mrs March was working 3-11:30 Fri, Sat and Sunday. I needed to get a new radio for work. You might be saying..Why? I like having a cd player that is not my computer. Turning stuff up/down, pausing you name it..bugs me. Couple that with the fact that some days I load in cds and you'd swear the computer was going to explode. The cds would "whir" so loudly in the computer co-workers would wonder what was going on.
I had a cheapo cd boombox for work and it recently decided it no longer wanted to open to let me put cds in. I did get 10+ years out of it.
I went to some local stores to "look". I don't want anything too fancy. I went to Target, and of all places Kmart..i haven't been in one of those in YEARS. Finally I went to Best Buy. After finding what I wanted (less than 40.00 after all) I just poked around some. Hey, guys are like that..beer, BBQ, electronics stores..don't try to understand..just accept it.
Near the video games they had Guitar Hero connected and I had heard about it..but never played. I strapped on the guitar and the idea is pretty basic..a series of color patters scrolls along with the song. You press the color that is on the screen down on the guitar as you "strum" (press another button). The more you get right, the more your rock. Well I just don't rock. It was harder than I ever expected. (Easy level is just as complex as 3 color codes..it goes up to 5). I tried it again and completed the song and was given "rock status" but I didn't feel so rock and roll. Its fun to play, you botch a note (or a few in my case) and the audience groans in disapproval. It is fun enough to consider buying..but I don't have any gaming system so I'd have to start from scratch..and right now..I can't go there. So, I hope this will pass..it will but I am ready to rock again.
Oh the song I played and botched..."Radar Love" and the game tells you "Made popular by White Lion". Oh...popular and White Lion..never thought I'd see that sentence..
