What’s Been New With Emptyeye

Lately, I’ve been putting a lot of effort into the Connecticon Rock Band tournament. I finally finished the spreadsheet of songs for it, containing all 661 songs you can currently play on my Rock Band 3 setup. The spreadsheet will be printed out to help people get a sense of what they can pick, especially …

Early Saturday Status Update

So let’s see here. Fresh off of my Connecticon Best Rock Band Vocalist title defense, I’ve been working on my Rock Band imports from the first game in preparation for next weekend’s GameUniCon. This tournament is a bit different than Connecticon’s; for one, it’s strictly score-based–two bands enter, play the same song (Or set of …

Connecticon 2009: Mission Accomplished

And I’m not quite sure how I managed to pull it off. (WARNING: The word is over-used, but this is seriously an epic-length [About 3900 words according to WordPress] post. It’s behind the cut here so you won’t have to scroll through it all to read the older stuff)

Woo-hoo, I Live!

Yeah, not a lot to say here. Now that my Endless Setlist odyssey is done, it’s time to get back to practicing the MAGFest Challenges. And that’s pretty much it. I may at some point write up a guide for the Endless Setlist to help people (Particularly vocalists) who can’t already gold star everything in …

XBOX 360 IS 360 ROADS LOL

Yesterday afternoon, I went out and bought an XBOX 360, after having been assured by a Gamestop employee (Admittedly not the most unbiased source, but more likely to follow this than I had over the past two years or so) that the famous Red Ring of Death problem that plagued early models had been fixed. …

My Title May Be In Trouble

Today was a Connecticon Member Appreciation Day. These things are pretty cool; they’re essentially one day mini-cons, with video gaming and the like available all day. It was really kind of surreal–the events take place in an actual office building, which gives everything a weird sort of vibe (Not to mention making it impossible to …

Random Thoughts of the Tuesday Variety

Heeere we go! Leading things off is this fun Rock Band video. There are a lot of “Full Combo” videos out there, but this one is a cut above the rest–clearly, much more work was put into it than just “film the screen” like lots of other videos of its ilk. Living right next door …

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 …

The Random Tuesday Return

Woo-hoo! I’ve been listening to Boston‘s 1976 self-titled album almost constantly over the last few days. This was partly Rock Band-inspired, yes, but the album itself is…well, popularity isn’t necessarily synonymous with quality (See the diamond albums recorded by various boy bands of the late 90s), but 17 million people have it right in this …
