Mommy Rocks


So I've been told I must post about my addiction to rocking out. You see Stephen decided he would like a Wii for Christmas. Easy enough, I liked the games okay but nothing life changing. Then around Father's Day we picked up Guitar Hero. Again, it looked fun but I had three kids to watch over and precious sleep to think about. Eventually I was coerced into trying it out one weekend night after the kiddies were in bed and I've never been the same since. Before I knew it I had played 18 songs. I went through the easy level like Sherman through Georgia.
Now keep in mind, I do not rock - I play, simply and efficiently like I do so many things. I hit almost every note with a mechanical precision based on speed and distance and with no regard to the true spirit of the game. No, I do not have rhythm, I don't even know the songs. But, I can play for hours, hitting upwards of 200 notes in a row and getting 5 stars without ever moving from my perfectly still, knee-locked stance.
So last weekend we rented the new Aerosmith's Guitar Hero and yes - I've decided not only that I must have it - I must conquer it. It seems the twins, especially Maddie (above) prefer Aerosmith to Foghat so isn't that reason enough?

For everybody's sake, you better hope they don't come out with "Guitar Hero - Robert Earl Keen Edition."

However, I will battle Stephen to the death on "Guitar Hero - Suicidal Tendencies Edition."

Robert Earl Keen would be awesome - they should so do a Rock-a-billy version. You could battle Reverend Horton Heat to beat the game!

I did see that there are some brand new hot pink girlie guitars coming out soon for Guitar Hero. I think we both need one. Can we bring the tv and wii to Kampfest III? I mean, we could charge admission...
