Rock Blog Thursday 08/02/07

edited August 2007 in Announcements
The long and short of it- just got out of Love Bucket practice. Verdict? We're awesome, though I must admit my voice wasn't quite up to snuff on a few tracks and I almost let the band down in a huge way in some crucial moments when I didn't exactly know the song which to my knowledge is sung in a pitch hitherto unknown by me. That or maybe it was the ice cold 'Gansett provided by Matt. I'm not sure.

We're starting to chart out some super sweet awesomosity in regards to community stuff for Rock Band. Stay tuned.

Two blogs today. First we have a brief Sports and Weather from Warburg who extols the virtues of Garnett. Me? I miss Gerald Green but I think KG will more than make up for it. Next we have QA extolling the virtues of candy- weird-ass UFO saucer candy from the 30's specifically.

Warburg with sports and weather.


QA gets their weird-Catholic-UFO-candy-thang on.

    KG was well worth what we gave up for him, considering he signed on for more years.

    as for info, people need to be patient

    you miss Gerald Green? I think Al Jefferson is the real player to be missing. The guy's going to be a superstar, but so is KG.

    The kid I work with has been crying all week about the 7 for 1 trade....something about "trading their future away for KG". Something to that effect. Hopefully it doesn't turn into the Lakers where there's a couple of decent guys and an horrendous bench. Sure the Celts will win games, but how good will they be past that?

    hey Sean, I kinda asked this question on your "How did I get here" blog, but I am so paranoid that I thought I would post here too :)
    Anyway, I am a senior in high school and I am planning on going to college to be a 3d modeler. So my question to you is, how can I get a job at a major gaming company? Should I start as a tester like you? Please respond, my future career is in your hands!! :p

    more community stuff = kickass. Although if it causes me to lose my job I'll be sending my resume your way.

    Hey, the whole point of professional sports is (or should be) to win a championship...and you guys are definately in the drivers seat in the East now. I wish you all luck.

    Oh, and when you guys do finally end up throwing down with those 'other' game developers in a no-holds-barred cage match of death...I'll be able to pay-per-view that, right?

    Edit: And oh yah, really looking forward to the community stuff...my interest = peaked.

    worry about finding a good school for 3d modeling first

    thanks for the advice, I don't know if you know about this kind of thing; but do you know of any really good schools for 3d modeling in Southern California?

    I'm from boston, so no lol.

    Ask your high school guidance counselor. they'll find you one easily

    yeah, my counselor and I have talked. Seeing as this is my last year of high school I will be talking to her pretty often.

    Find good development houses in your area. As HMX is from Boston, most of their devs are probably from the Mass. area in the first place. As for SoCal, there are a huge amount of good dev houses down there, find some, and ask them, since they're probably natives.

    On an unrelated note, the photography school I want to go to is in Santa Barbara. :/ Damn me and my living in Sacramento.

    This is exactly what happened to the Kings out here... and look at where they are now. Sad.

    Thx for the reply. where would I find one of these Dev Houses? I tried a google search and only found this one in Boston.

    I was at the Incubus concert today and I was wondering if they might be in Rock Band?

    No one knows. The only purely 100% songs are on the songlist part of rockband.com and the who's "Who's Next" album for the first DLC album.
