Emptyeye.com Week 43- Skipping Weeks Is Fun

This past week, I actually posted some stuff. Amazing, huh?

I’m still trying to figure out precisely what to do with my stimulus check plus birthday money. Essentially, in one corner is waiting a bit and buying an XBOX 360 and Rock Band 2 when it comes out. In the other is actually addressing my recording obstacles full-on, getting either a new soundcard or adapter for the current one plus an honest-to-goodness updated copy of Cakewalk SONAR (The latter actually being the more expensive of the two); I know which one I should get (The second one), but knowing me, I’ll demonstrate a total lack of responsibility and commitment and cave and get the first next month.

Jess and I went down to New Haven today to eat at a place called Amato’s, which was pretty good. I had a huge lasagna, which I only managed to finish half of, and Jess had some chicken parm which she also failed to finish. More leftovers are always good, I suppose.

In Guitar Hero III news, I’m through 3 of 8 tiers on Expert, with all but 3 songs 5-starred. My most recent 4-star, “Paint it Black”, was probably also the most amusing in that I hit 96% of the notes. The problem was that six of the song’s 9 star power phrases were in the 4% of notes I missed. Oops…

Until next week..

    While you grind away at the rhythm games, I played through Castlevania 2 and Stinger yesterday. Long live the NES!
