Rock Blog Tuesday 08/14/07

edited September 2007 in Announcements
How was your day? Sadly there will be no LoveBucket practice tonight as we are one member down today. I think a name change may have happened as well - to "Revenge Pretty" which I also like. I am aching to get on the game and play. Sometimes I start jonesing a little. Our next practice is Thursday and then we only have one more before PAX.

Speaking of PAX, who is going? You should PM me and let me know so I can make sure you get at least one turn on the game (I have a feeling there will be lines.) I can't have community folks getting short shrift. Also, there will only be two members of LoveBucket/Revenge Pretty out there and we may need a few fill-ins. Who better than you lot?

    Revenge Pretty. Incredible. You guys...that just so owns...seriously to me you guys are the rockstar equivalent.

    Now let's talk expos: Do we have an official list of which expos Rock Band will be demoed? If so which of those will actually have Harmonix bands (reps or employees sounds lame)? And lastly, and maybe more answerable, can we expect any pre-release DLC on Live or PSN? Trailers, themes, picture packs, anything?

    Sorry, got more questions tonight for some reason. Normally I can contain myself to 1

    Why does the East Coast get the crap end of the stick? And Harmonix is here! You guys should use your influence and bring us our PAX/E3 hybrid. But not down south. Like between DC and Boston somewhere.

    when was this? I got an email from him yesterday inviting me to come down sometime in the next two weeks. I met the criteria also, but i'm waiting for him to email me back. I have my fingers crossed.

    Haha, I wonder...if I were to go to Boston, would they let me in the Harmonix offices? It's only like...two hours. And Xziliac, agreed, It sucks here on the East Coast. Especially here in Jersey. All we have here are toxic waste dumps and Bon Jovi...

    (Hah, I'm good at New Jersey stereotypes)

    Woo, I got a shout out for my crazy blog post.

    The celebrity status is already rushing to my head. Gotta go down some booze and go stupid crazy like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears.

    I'm pretty sure Harmonix wouldn't just let you walk into their offices and start playing their game...

    Sadly there will be no LoveBucket practice tonight as we are one member down today.
    Which one is gone? It's perfectly okay to continue practice without a member if it's the bassist who's missing. ;)

    My brother was supposed to come down and visit me this weekend so we could hang out and whatnot, therefor clearing up my weekend for next week (PAX). Sadly, he works for douche bags and they said he couldn't have this weekend off but NEXT weekend...............
    I love you Rock Band. I love you a lot. But, I love my brother just a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit more. I CAN'T GO TO PAX ANYMOREEEEEEEEEE. I think I'm going to cry :(
    This is truly a sad day. I was looking forward to meeting some peeps and of course Rock Band. ::sigh::

    How was your day?
    Bad. The first thing I read today was "EA confirms no Rockband for Europe in 2007". I was shocked and followed the link to Gamespot, and well, the EA UK guy said "I don't think it comes out in 2007 here". Ok, that's not really an official statement I guess. But it still doesnt sound good. :(
    Speaking of PAX, who is going? You should PM me and let me know so I can make sure you get at least one turn on the game (I have a feeling there will be lines.)
    Oh wow, I wish I could. But I would rather have the chance to go to Leipzig again, but unfortunately I can't be there too this year. Argh... damnit... what a bad day today :(

    I lived in Rahway for two years and I totally agree.
  • edited August 2007
    Umm yeah... I just looked up how much it'd cost me to get to PAX...

    Plane tickets alone are $3752, and I'd need another $500 for accommodation and misc stuff. I think I'm gonna have to sit this one out.

    Yes, because as we all know, a mini-fridge is more important than a bassist. ;)
