Beatles Rockband!

So I say that I was born too late, having missed experiencing the debut of all my favorite movies, music etc ... But I know that actually I was born at just the right time, where I could enjoy all those things in an obsessive way thanks to DVDs and my iPod.

And now another great reason that I am living at exactly the right time: Beatles Rockband. One of my favorite old things (The Beatles) meets one of the favorite new things (video games where you pretend to play musical instruments)! Ok, yes, I love Guitar Hero and the like. Maybe I'm a dork, but I'm telling you, it's fun. It's not like I'm ever going to be able to play the guitar, so pretending to play guitar solos for my favorite songs is quite a thrill. And nothing could be more thrilling than pretending to play Beatles songs!

Unfortunately I have to wait like 3 whole months before the game comes out. It's going to be rough, but I'm fairly certain it'll be worth the wait.

Just this week they finally released some limited information about it that made me even more impatient. They also put up a trailer for the game (I didn't realize video games have trailers, but they do), and this kind of cool ... thing ... not sure what one would call it, but the second half made me feel like I was on drugs.

Needless to say, you may not see much of me come September 9.

Oh my. I will have to join you. I heard about this from my brother (who has rockband) and I am fairly excited and was wondering if anyone in my age demographic would share my enthusiasm. (Well, there are some, at least or they wouldn't make the game, but I am refering to those around my immediate places of inhabitance.) Good thing you're here! ;)

I may have to disappear with you...
