    I got into the 90s in percentage for Aesthetics of Hate on drums. Only a matter of time before I get a new kit so I can take it into quickplay.

    Added over 200,000 to my career score, after I thought I had already peaked.

    Jumped over 200 places on the PSN leaderboards.

    2 more gold stars (one of them being Foreplay/Longtime, HOLLA!)

    Super pumped about today's events. w00t w00t

    this has been a wierd week.
    Broke my stock pedal. Made myself a new one with a real drum pedal and some sensors. Took weeks to calibrate till "perfection". Now im just braking all my records and goldstaring several a day (that is... when i play).

    It feelt good gold staring Vasoline... but im sooo angry that i wasnt awarded a 100% for it. Im sooo sure i didnt make any mistakes and recieve a 99% out of it was just crap.

    There is this other song on a higher tier... cant remember the name tho... i got goldstars and FAILED IT RIGHT AT THE END !!!!!!! OMG !!! what can be any worse than that !!!!. Tried several times to regain goldstar and be able to complete it. Didnt get the same score (gold star but not as high as it was when i failed it) but at least it was gold star.

    Thats it for this week.

    Just FC'd WGFA on bass.

    Scores me 11th on PSN (without using a path, as usual).

    Yeah. Pumped about that.

    was on a tight schedule, leaving for vacation extremely early Friday morning, front loading my time at work so i didn't have to use an actual paid day off for Friday, packing, etc, etc...............and my brother-in-law being over thursday night......and he will definitely want to play..........and usual "fighting" with the wife for the TV

    i did it, i got through all of the Marathon Challenges, and unlocked all the songs. my #1 goal before vacation. once i'm back, i'm then tackling BWT.

    i'm going to have to do a few challenges with my other band members to get them money and such, but that's minor


    i'm just praying........that doing the marathon and opening the songs with one band makes them available for another band i have. if not, i may be doing the marathon challenges again!

    Managed to pass DFtR Hard by way of conserving OD towards the end. I'll have to find a way of passing that section properlike if I ever want to make it through Expert.

    I'm one RttH away from Heavy Hitter.

    Mine was just being able to obtain a copy of RB2. I went into gamestop at 10am on Sunday and they only had 2 copies available that weren't set aside for pre orders. So being able to get the game itself was mine!

    Added 200,000 more to my career score and jumped another 200 spots on the PSN leaderboards.

    Back to back days of adding 200,000 to my career score and jumping 200 spots on the leaderboards, after I thought I had peaked.

    I'm pretty sure I'm done now, though.

    Gold starred Tom Sawyer on Expert drums yesterday with my ION kit. Checked the RB2 Leaderboards later in the day and I was 16th place! Wow. I'm not used to being that high.

    I made some sort of mental plateau leap and passed Constant Motion and Ride the Lightning on expert guitar, and can seem to consistently do well on them now. Only thing I haven't passed now is Thrasher and Snow.

    I sing on easy (all I have is a crappy 360 headset mic, and to be honest I'm not that good). I usually 4 or 5 star songs, and I have done a bit on medium....

    So I decided to try performance mode (tailor made for Vox I think).
    Skullcrusher Mountain - I song I know by heart, on medium.

    99%.

    Pretty cool.

    Finally beat Blackened on expert guitar (only hit 80% of notes, but oh well). Now if I could just conquer RtL I'll be done with Metallica...

    I DIDN'T play Rock Band to excess the last two weeks. I started college and need the time to study/work on assignments.

    I consider this a victory as I have a horribly addictive personality... My Rock Band victory was this: learned to play in moderation.

    (oh, and made it to 2160th in the leaderboards for Guitar ... that's probably changed since the 13th.)

    Conquered the Endless Setlist 2 on vocals! Got 80/84 gold stars and the Steel Bladder achievement. My hat goes off to anyone who can get that achievement as a solo player on expert drums or guitar.

    I went back to RB1 to try to get the last 3 songs I need to finish the Hard tour.

    Train Kept a Rollin' and Green Grass and High Tides finally got beat. 3 stars and it wasn't pretty. Had to hold on to Overdrive during those solos (came within a sliver of losing GGaHT a couple times when I'd get some white notes in the nick of time) but victory is mine!

    Flirting with Disaster is all that stands in my way.

    Scored Rock Band 2 Thursday and beat the Impossible Expert Vocal challenge 12 hours later. Spoonman is harder than Bob Dylan and the System song I don't know why it's listed as easier.
