I slept for like 12 hours last night. It was awesome. I rolled into a work a touch late, locked some threads, wrote some emails, sent out some packages, saw the price that the guitar we signed for Scorehero fetched on Ebay... HOLY CRAP?!?!?! $1575??!?!?! In real money? That rules! As I have stated before we do love Scorehero, we've always thought JCirri runs a tight operation and it is a good place to talk about games. We are stoked that they could score some extra dough to keep their servers running tip-top. And whoever bought it - you rule. That was a really generous thing you did and I hope you enjoy the guitar.

I wanted to post this picture up because I am still nerding out about getting a chance to play the game with Jonathan Coulton.

I wish I had more to talk about but I am still feeling a little lagged trying to get back into a routine. Maybe I'll go home and play a little Bioshock?


Heather...briefly.

Leo loves Public Transportation!

    i'm still severely sad about missing pax. RB? Wil Wheaton? Minibosses?? Freezepop??? RB?????

    yeap. sad. anyways, good to see you guys attempting to spread some love to Scorehero, despite the fact that all their members ever do is talk sh*t.

    and I still want a t-shirt! let us know if there's a way we can score some leftover swag! :D

    I've just got to say... this shot is crazy. Those guitars SERIOUSLY look like a real Strat. I know this, I'm aware of this fact, but, still, it's just so damned close it's awesome.

    Whoah, is that a Shaimus Rock Band shirt the guitar player on the right is wearing? If so, awesome, I love Shaimus!

    Scorehero's a great community and all, but it just doesn't seem like there's enough love for Rockband there...

    LOL at spelling the band wrong twice.

    People shouldn't be surprised HMX is loaded with rock celebrities :p

    speaking of rock celebs in HMX... "Orchids and Ammunition" was a great album.

    I'm very impressed at your ability to get substantive daily updates onto the site. It's a lot harder than it looks.

    Are those actual Rock Band shirts, or are those stickers or something on the shirts? Either way I think it is about time for a Rock Band shop to show up, I need some Rock Band merchandise ASAP.

    Nice blogs today, Heather's was really short, and I really enjoyed Leo's, very enjoyable.

    Glad to hear you finally got some sleep Sean.

    When is DanT's next blog? I believe he promised some more info for us post PAX :D

    Isn't there a saying about wearing your own band's t-shirt?

    It stands for 'Super Heroes And Indians Make Us Smile.' Another reason why all of us are totally in love with them.

    Coulton was AWESOME!
    good thing i got to see him at the nerdcore concert, since i missed him playing RB...

    I think the Shaimus shirt just has the RB stickers on it...but either way it's pretty rockin'

    Every person in the Harmonix booth at PAX is the coolest person ever. Seriously, they all kicked ass.

    Go play Bioshock! I just finished it the other night. Amazing game and awesome story. Loved every second of it!


    Sean, seriously, how do I get one of those shirts/hoodies??? I really (and I mean REALLY) want one of those! I'll wear it every day and every night and walk around the mall or movie theaters or wherever else it is that kids hang out these days ;) The stink of it alone will get people to look at me in disgust and then be like, "oh wow, cool shirt. What is Rock Band?" And then I will bestow upon them all the knowledge I know of Rock Band and convert them! Hook a brotha up!!! :D
