rocking with the band

went to visit Claire in CT over the holiday weekend.  it was a great time especially since we got to spend some quality time together PLAYING ROCK BAND.  the slight enjoyment has blossomed into full fledged addiction.  i love feeling like i'm shirley manson of garbage throwing down a hot guitar solo to "I Think I'm Paranoid".  

our band was completed when MC strolled into the house with his rockin' rhythms.  we funneled the power of all great rockers to achieve "easy" greatness on Bon Jovi, All American Rejects, Foo Fighters and other classics.

after all the Rock Banding was done, Claire and I hit the stores and enjoyed some new purchases.  we also saw a house with a pediment full of fruit.  only on the east.  :)

now i just need to bring the joy of rock band into my own home.  apparently it is very hard to get but i won't rest until the band can come together in the city.  

new found joy of palladia HD

channel surfing recently i came across an HD channel that was showing counting crows concert footage. now i'm not a huge counting crows fan but the thought of additional concert footage broadcast in HD really whet my whistle. i scrolled through the guide and found that the Goo Goo Dolls (a favorite band) were part of a show called "music in high places". of course i recorded and enjoyed their live performances while seeing the beauty and majesty of Alaska.

i think Palladia just might make it onto my "favorites" list. just goes to show that channel surfing can bring great results!

while riding the Alaska train, the Goos performed "Here is Gone"

a slight sabbatical

don't know what it is about the holidays but they are always very, very busy.  doesn't help that work is also hectic along with the Primary responsibilities.  i needed to take a break from the things that make up my the blogging was the casualty of too much to do with too little time.

went to Connecticut to visit Claire and the Munchkins over Christmas and spent New Years chillin' in my crib.  so often it is my dearest wish to stay home, order some food, put on my pajamas, watch a cheesy chic flic and put my hair in a pony tail.  that is what i opted for this Christmas.  so very, very nice.  

also this Christmas made me miss my family more than ever.  hopefully i'll be able to spend it with them in 2009.

very happy new year and merry christmas to one and all and welcome 2009!
