Rock Blog FRIDAY! 10/12/07

edited October 2007 in Announcements
Still mostly under the weather from the Swamp Lung I got out in Seattle. I'll try to keep this short - while I am lucid.

Working hard on getting a bunch more info out to you all and clarifying things and breaking out some of the new heat and next week I'll also be introducing you to the first addition to the community team. He'll be helping me with a lot of the community stuff both here and in the world and on email and yes you can put him through a crazy initiation rite to make sure he is really up to par with a community of this caliber. Kick his tires, if you know what I mean. This conversation never happened.

ALSO, and this is the big news, we have a little something for you. We really thought that banner that the community signed thanking us for Rock Band was wicked nice and very awesome of all of you. Therefore we made this for you today-

CLICK HERE

So, you know, thanks. It will have a place of honor at Harmonix as soon as we find a wall long enough to hang it, for now it has a place of honor in the Freq Pit held down by hot sauce. In it's own way - that is a pretty rad place to be.


BLOGS!

Where is Moss?

    That poor sap will never know what him 'em. NEW FISH!

    The download keeps hanging up so I will try back later. I see it's a movie. If there's belly dancing involved, there will not be a second banner. In fact, the existing one may spontaneously combust. ;) :p :)

    I have the utmost respect for Apples for doing that banner. Its wonderful to see a company that cares about their community and would take time out of their busy schedule to thank their community for their support. I feel honered to be in such a group.

    What a nice video. The love just comes round and round. Now we'll have to make a response thank-you note for the video, as well as one to apples for putting the card together :p

    hell yeah! That's awesome! (the video)

    Hmmm listened to it again and heard something like "We'll have U2 and then we'll have HIM". My guess is they were just saying where everyone is going to sit and all. like "We'll have you two here and him over there." So I don't think it was any indication of the actual bands.

    Fixed.

    And this sentence is just to make the post long enough to satisfy the forum software.

    I'll be looking forward to some more answers and info next week, sounds good!

    Nice blog by DanT, sweet answers, its good to know that when more than one person fails and they get saved, all of them are saved at once.

    Great video too, I'm glad I got to be a part of that banner.

    Hehe, I think it was actually a joke to make us think those bands may be in the game.
    Or maybe it was a hint? I'd really love U2's With or Without you.

    Wow, I finally got the video to download, and it was awesome.

    It surprised me how big your staff was. This confirms my suspicion that Harmonix is secretly building an army to take over Boston and the greater New England area. (Except New Jersey, because no one wants New Jersey :D )



    So where's the new guy? I haven't seen him post yet. Maybe he's jealous of my new Companion Cube avatar. Don't worry, I have some cake to console him.... it's so delcious and moist. ;)

    Uh oh. Somebody cut the cake. I told them to wait for you, but they cut it anyway. There is still some left, though, if you hurry back.

    My poor state. Always getting ragged on.

    (but I share the same sentiment. The politicians ruined it.)
