Rock Band Rocks!

The kids came over late this Chrismas morning and stayed until about 8PM, which qualifies as probably the longest visit of the year.

We opened presents in about 30 seconds flat. The big gift was the Rock Band Bundle from MTV games. It was a smash hit.

We spent most of the day alternating between trying out the new game and shooting a bunch of 8-Ball. The latter activity gave rise to the band's name, "The Miscubes" ( some sort of bastardization of the word miscue, because there were plenty, especially once the beers started flowing later in the day).

We also managed to wolf down vast quantities of buffalo wings, pigs in a blanket, shrimp cocktail and other finger foods, which is we always do on Christmas, rather than have a traditional sit down dinner.

I didn't really participate in the rock band, but watched my older son on guitar, my daughter on vocals and my younger son manning the drums. It was clear they were having a blast but I may have enjoyed it most of all, just sitting there and watching them engage each other.

All in all it was a very Merry X-mas for this father of three who doesn't get to see enough of his kids!

We got Rock Band for my son Luke. We're all lovin' it as well. I had heard about some problems with the various controllers, but we haven't run into any of those yet. Just lots of fun! Merry Xmas
