Weird Body Parts Diptych
Stressed. Apparently its affecting my sleep. I'm getting sick of testing certain things at work.

Could I just stop caring about it? Then I might sleep better.

Yeah right. I have a meeting scheduled for 4 today to discuss better ways to test this wacky code that I can't test thoroughly. The code sends data to a third party application and we use the data it gets back. Of course, I can't accurately test what the system does or how it responds what with it not being ours. I can only make an educated guess which can, likely, not account for reality 100% of the time. Meh.

Sisyphus or Job? I'd like to return to Narcissus, please.

In Awesome News, Rock Band delivers today. I'm going to pick up a second guitar today so we can get bass playing too. I'm glad to see the PS2 is an open gaming mecca and that all Guitar Hero guitars work on PS2 Rock Bank. I can get the cool 80's style Kramer guitar.

Meh. Nose, meet grindstone.

Photo: Uh, I captured kiwikat's head for unknown reasons. i also had a picture of legs on the photowalk. I figure body parts would be a good diptych. Little weird but I like it.

Yeah. Carry on.

Current Mood: frustrated Meh

The strat is pretty unbeatable if you ask me (so long as it isn't borked), but bizarre swears by the guitar hero guitars. Admittedly, the wirelessness of the Les Paul is damn cool.

the effects switch is lame/useless but the lower frets are quite nice. the upper frets and strummer are less "clicky" on the strat, which I prefer.

I disliked the click of the Guitar hero guitars.

I will see what's available at Best Buy. I'll likely buy what ever is inexpensive. Unless I can find the funny tentacle decal for the Rock Band statocaster. Cuz guitars are better with tentacles.

There's a wireless strat too, but it is a little pricey.

What we found to be the best deal was to actually (gulp) purchase GH3 for 100 bucks to get the wireless LP which retails I think for 75 all by itself. The Xplorer goes for about 60 if memory serves.

I'm so confused how all this plugs in on the PS2. They something about a USB hub coming with the game. I had no idea my PS2 had a USB port...

the game comes with a "dongle"
it works quite nicely.

DONGLE

Don't you dongle me.
assfingers From: assfingers Date: July 2nd, 2008 04:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
I shall dongle whomever I please. Further, I shall do so whenever I see fit.

You're right re: price. I think I can get GH3 and the guitar for 70 at Preplayed. What annoys me is that the GH guitars don't work in Rock band on the PS3 should i ever actually get a PS#.

Are you coming out tomorrow?

Ms. Ma'am works until like a billion o'clock.
We've definitely got your number for rehashed directions (I have a fairly good memory of location) if she proves to be untired.

You can't go anywhere without her? WHIPPED.
assfingers From: assfingers Date: July 2nd, 2008 04:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
in this instance, she can't go anywhere (home, your party, etc) without ME.

i'm her ride, see.

I don't think my head qualifies as a weird body part.

Diptych is very powerful word on the scrabble board.

I don't like how the guitar for wii guitar hero clicks. The strumming bar bounces back too much so I end up double-strumming sometimes if I get excited (or, ahem, a smidge tipsy).
