      Back in BC at the moment. Man, you guys know how to snow.... Even if it is only once in 40 years. I'm loving every minute of it!

      If I'd have posted this a day ago, it would've been a very different journal, full of angst and 'woe is me' shit. And while that stuff is still there, today is different. I've been given some one on one perspective on it today, in a big-brother-ass-kicking sort of way that I've needed for fuck knows how long. And you know what? I think it's worked.

      I'm going to break my neck snowboarding on Cypress Mountain tomorrow smiley0.gif can't wait!

      Funny how a bit of 1930's blues can soothe the mind and soul.

      I had my birthday celebrations tonight, in lieu of my actual birthday on Monday. I wish you could all have been there.

      Ask me how it went.

    • Rock Band 2: Why?

      10 years ago

      Epoch157

      Thanks for you kind comments the other night. It was a moment of weakness, and I apologise. But I appreciate what you said.

      Anyway, on to another rant. So I was going to buy Rock Band 2 when it comes out this Friday. I loved the first game - we've had some hilarious nights at home with it. And I was kind of excited about the new drum kit. But it's expensive, so I was trying to figure if I could justify getting it.

      Then, I realised, there is absolutely no point to RB2. The drum kit is basically the same (really, it is, it's just a bit more realistic looks-wise with the cymbals and all). There doesn't seem to be that much difference in the single/multiplayer campaign, and all of the DLC tracks are backwards compatible with the first game. So what's the point in it? It's like you're basically paying £40 for some new songs. Ouch!

      GH:WT does seem like a lot of fun, but I don't really see how anyone could justify spending that much money to get the new kit, and not be able to use DL'ed songs from Rock Band. Meh, I'm not usually that cynical about games, but there does seem to be a certain element of pure, unadulterated money making about the whole thing.

      I think I'll stick to RB 1.

      Sorry for the delayed reply!
      I just found the idea of tracking eye movements quite fascinating. Being in the high-speed video industry I have actually filmed eye movement in slow motion and it is quite amazing how fast it can move and change direction.

      What kind of equipment do you use and what have you learned from people's eyes?

      1. I'll respond with something random about you.

      YOU + Guitar = Very sexy

      2. I'll tell you which song or movie you remind me of.

      Run To You by Bryan Adams

      3. I'll pick a flavor of jello to wrestle you in.

      How about oil instead? smiley8.gif

      4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me, if possible.

      Every time I hit the switch, I think of you. smiley1.gif

      5. I'll tell you my first memory of you.

      I think you started coming around in the Vegas thread, around the time I was holding a contest for custom made awards... I enjoyed your design quite a bit. smiley1.gif

      6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.

      An eagle

      7. I'll ask you something I've always wondered about you.

      I'll save this one for next time I see you on MSN.

      8. I'll tell you my favorite thing about you.

      You're intellect and large... creativity. smiley8.gif

      9. I'll tell you my least favorite thing about you.

      You're too often down on yourself when you don't deserve it.

      Eh, mostly Microsoft Office type things, internet, photo storage. Maybe maybe gaming possibility if I can afford it, but that would be bonus.

      Oh, I'll visit England soon enough. Unfortunately I'm going with a female friend who is a little wary of strangers, and even more unfortunately I told her that the only person I know in England is someone I met online, so she is royally freaked out and I cannot seem to persuade her that you are not going to chop us up into bits. I may have to make this trip a girls only affair, but I will almost certainly be back. England has my almost undivided attention at the moment.
