Song-A-Day Meme - Day 1 My Favorite song [Jun. 25th, 2010|02:38 pm]
t3hteeks
Oh hi. I'm here to steal a meme from everybody else on Livejournal because I think it's pretty rad yo and I like music. SO here we go! It's the song-a-day meme! This time, it's my favorite song!


"When We Die" - Bowling for Soup



Sorry there's no official video, the bastards disabled embeding. Anyway, this is my favorite song ever for a number of reasons. First off, if you've ever listened to this band, they're my favorite btw, then you know this song is way different than most everything else they've done. I didn't think I'd like it so much but for some reason it just hit home with me. It's an amazing song with amazing lyrics. Specifically "Nothin's worth losin'/especially the chance to make it right." It's a sweet song with a lot of heart and a lot to like about it. Good job, boys.


Day 01 - Your favorite song: "When We Die" - Bowling for Soup
Day 02 - A song that makes you happy
Day 03 - A song that makes you sad
Day 04 - A song that reminds you of someone
Day 05 - A song that reminds you of somewhere
Day 06 - A song that reminds you of a certain event
Day 07 - A song that you can dance to
Day 08 - A song that makes you fall asleep
Day 09 - A song from your favorite band
Day 10 - A song that no one would expect you to love
Day 11 - A song that describes you
Day 12 - A song from your favorite album
Day 13 - A song that you listen to when you're angry
Day 14 - A song that you listen to when you're happy
Day 15 - A song that you listen to when you're sad
Day 16 - A song that you want to play at your wedding
Day 17 - A song that you want to play at your funeral
Day 18 - A song that makes you laugh
Day 19 - A song that turns you on
Day 20 - A song you've listened to after a break-up
Day 21 - A song that gives you shivers
Day 22 - A song you can't help but air-jam to

My list has 95% less anime characters than everyone elses [Feb. 2nd, 2010|07:55 pm]
t3hteeks
EIGHT CHARACTERS I LOVE:
1. Mario (Super Mario Bros.)
2. Toad (Super Mario Bros.)
3. Wolverine (X-Men)
4. Han Solo (Star Wars)
5. Dr. Teeth (The Muppets)
6. Jack Skellington (The Nightmare Before Christmas)
7. Mr. Potato Head (Toy Story)
8. Homer Simpson (The Simpsons)


FOUR CHARACTERS I'VE ABANDONED:
1. Will Turner (Pirates of the Caribbean) - This could also apply to Elizebeth. But after the first Pirates, all the characters but Jack started to suck. Will was an awesome partner in crime for Jack in the first film and was a total badass, but he became a huge douchebag in the second and third film. I dunno what the film makers were getting at there.
2. The Entire cast of Heroes - I cared until roughly episode two of season two.
3. Spyro the Dragon - I cared about him for two games and then his games started to suck. I'm stretching this list a bit cause I'm having a hard time thinking.
4. All The Guitar Hero Characters - While granted, not very fleshed out characters, I cared until Activision bought the series and then I decided I liked Rock Band more

FOUR CHARACTERS I'VE NEVER LIKED:
1. Superman - Superman may be the poster child of superheroes, but man does he suck. He's got every power known to man, he's got practically no weaknesses and he's so plain and boring.
2. Fawful (Mario & Luigi) - K so Meta already said this but Fawful is an awful character. He's not funny. He's not interesting. He's just annoying. And the internet makes him 374093742 times more annoying because they like him so damn much.
3. Master Cheif (Halo) - Oh hey, unoriginal, uninspired army guy, I didn't see you there!
4. Rabbids (Rayman: Raving Rabbids) - Why do I dislike the rabbids? They're ugly and annoying and have completely replaced the title character of the series. Sure, I never really cared much about the Rayman series to begin with but I mean, come on guys, what's going on here?

FOUR CHARACTERS THAT HAVE PIQUED MY INTEREST:
1. The cast of One Piece - I can't really think of a close friend I have online that doesn't consistantly talk about these characters. I figure there has to be something there for me to like.
2. Yatterman No-1 - ...Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
3. Viewtiful Joe (Viewtiful Joe) - Meta really likes him and his games, he's cool in TvC and I just bought both the first and second game for the Gamecube for 3 bucks each.
4. Travis Touchdown (No More Heroes) - Again, a lot of people like this guy. I'm curious as to why.

2009, Everything's Just Fine [Jan. 1st, 2010|06:31 pm]
t3hteeks
Everybody keeps talking about how shitty 2009 was but really, I have nothing but positive things to say about it. Sure there were some bad moments but that's every year.

In 2009 I graduated high school and got a job on the same day. I learned how to drive. I held on to a girlfriend for almost a year. Sure, that's over now but it's still a notable feat. I went to LA by myself to see my friends and go to Disneyland. I got a lot of great games and saw some great movies. My two favorite bands put out new CD's and several other of my favorite bands also put out new albums. Blink-182 announced that they were getting back together, that alone could make my year. We got a new president. My cousin had a baby. I discovered the amazingness of the Muppets. My Mighty Muggs collection has grown to 80 strong. I'm sure there's even more I'm forgetting.

Okay, sure, so in 2009 Michael Jackson died and that was sad. I couldn't go to New York to see our high school band in the Macy's Parade because I couldn't get the whole week off work. And I'm sure some other bad stuff happened but off the top of my head, I can't name any so they must not have been that bad.

So why all the negativity towards 2009? I've got nothing against you. Hopefully 2010 can be pretty good too

Rock out with your block out [Nov. 9th, 2009|01:19 am]
t3hteeks
[Current Music |Fireflies - Owl City]

So I bought Lego Rock Band because I am Harmonix's bitch and will buy anything with "Rock Band" slapped on it. And it's pretty fun. I like the whole style of the game and I mean, it's more Rock Band, so that's always fun.

Few things though. I got the Wii version of the game and it's totally gimped. The Wii version doesn't support DLC, Online or song exporting to Rock Band 2. DLC and Online were in Rock Band 2 for the Wii and they work great. Rock Band 2's online has worked better for me than any other Online game for Wii. So why would they not add these to Lego Rock Band? It's not like the Wii can't handle it or anything. It boggles the mind.

The graphics for the Wii aren't that great. They're not as bad as every one says, but they're not great either. A lot of it looks bad, mostly background stuff. And it goes back to the blurry vision that Rock Band 1 for the Wii had. Again, makes no sense since Rock Band 2 looked fine.

But to me, the biggest problem with the game is how repetitive the tour mode gets. The game only has 45 on disk songs and since the Wii version doesn't support DLC, you're going to be playing these same songs a lot. There's so much stuff to do in Tour and that's awesome, I love it. But it's not quite as fun to play the same songs over and over and over. "Accidently In Love" by Counting Crows is a fantastic song but playing it two challenges in a row is not so fantastic. This problem could have all been avoided if my DLC for Rock Band 2 just fucking worked on Lego Rock Band. I mean, damn.

Also, one more thing. I wonder, who was this games target market? Obviously kids would be the most likely to buy it. I mean, Legos are for kids. Kids will buy it. It'll likely sell the best for Wii. But if kids are the target market, why does the set list look like this?

1960's (2)
"Fire" - The Jimi Hendrix Experience (Classic Rock, 1967)
"I Want You Back" - Jackson 5 (Pop-Rock, 1969)

1970's (6)
"Crocodile Rock" - Elton John (Glam, 1973)
"Kung Fu Fighting" - Carl Douglas (Funk, 1974)
"Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me)" - Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel (Glam, 1975)
"Ride A White Swan" - T. Rex (Glam, 1970)
"The Passenger" - Iggy Pop (Classic Rock, 1977)
"We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions" - Queen (Classic Rock, 1977)

1980's (9)
"Crash" - The Primitives (Indie Rock, 1988)
"Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" - The Police (New Wave, 1981)
"Free Fallin'" - Tom Petty (Classic Rock, 1989)
"Ghostbusters" - Ray Parker, Jr. (Pop-Rock, 1984)
"Let's Dance" - David Bowie (Pop-Rock, 1982)
"Summer Of '69" - Bryan Adams (Rock, 1985)
"The Final Countdown" - Europe (Metal, 1986)
"Walking On Sunshine" - Katrina and The Waves (Pop-Rock, 1985)
"You Give Love A Bad Name" - Bon Jovi (Rock, 1986)

1990's (4)
"Aliens Exist" - blink-182 (Punk, 1999)
"Breakout" - Foo Fighters (Alternative, 1999)
"Song 2" - Blur (Alternative, 1997)
"Two Princes" - Spin Doctors (Alternative, 1993)

2000's (23)
"A-Punk" - Vampire Weekend (Indie Rock, 2008)
"Accidentally In Love" - Counting Crows (Rock, 2004)
"Check Yes Juliet" - We The Kings (Pop-Rock, 2007)
"Dig" - Incubus (Alternative, 2006)
"Dreaming Of You" - The Coral (Indie Rock, 2002)
"Girls & Boys" - Good Charlotte (Punk, 2003)
"Grace" - Supergrass (Rock, 2002)
"In Too Deep" - Sum 41 (Punk, 2001)
"Life Is A Highway" - Rascal Flatts (Country, 2006)
"Monster" - The Automatic Automatic (Indie Rock, 2006)
"Naive" - The Kooks (Indie Rock, 2005)
"Real Wild Child" - Everlife (Pop-Rock, 2007)
"Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast)" - Lostprophets (Alternative, 2006)
"Ruby" - Kaiser Chiefs (Indie Rock, 2006)
"Short & Sweet" - Spinal Tap (Metal, 2009)
"So What" - P!nk (Pop-Rock, 2008)
"Stumble and Fall" - Razorlight (Indie Rock, 2004)
"Suddenly I See" - KT Tunstall (Rock, 2004)
"Swing, Swing" - The All-American Rejects (Emo, 2003)
"Thunder" - Boys Like Girls (Pop-Rock, 2006)
"Tick Tick Boom" - The Hives (Punk, 2007)
"Valerie" - The Zutons (Indie Rock, 2006)
"Word Up!" - KoRn (Nu-Metal, 2004)

Now, think for a second. How many of these songs or bands can you name? Now think of how many kids 5 to 12 can name. I hardly know some of these bands but kids are supposed to know them? Sure, some of these songs make sense. "Life is a Highway," "Ghostbusters" and "Accidently In Love" are all popular soundtrack songs kids will likely know. But what about most of the others? Some of these songs just don't make sense. They're all family friendly, but still.

I think what bugs me the most is that "Swing, Swing" was the song picked by the band All-American Rejects. Why a song from their first album? Why not a song from their more mainstream albums? One more kids would know?

I like the way they handled it, I think it'll help kids learn some good music. But I can't help but feel it might not have been best to load it with mostly songs kids would be unfamilar with. At least make it half and half. I mean, I don't know even know The Zutons, Everlife or The Primitives

Rock Band 2 costs too much [Sep. 3rd, 2009|12:49 am]
t3hteeks
[Current Music |Savior - Rise Against]

I got the first Rock Band this past Christmas because Rock Band 2 had just come out so the stores all dropped the price of the original Rock Band bundle. I told my parents it would be cheaper to get the first game in the bundle and I'd just buy the stand alone Rock Band 2 disk later. It is now September of the following year and I just now got Rock Band 2.

I learned that the Wii now offers downloadable support for all but like, 12 of the almost 700 songs avaliable for download for Rock Band 2 which were previously only on X-Box and PS3. Since the DLC offers up a lot of songs by bands I like, I knew this would be an awesome way to rock to some of my bands. So I went out and bought Rock Band 2 from Wal-Mart for 29.99, ten bucks cheaper than Target, Toys R Us and Best Buy. I thought I was saving money.

Little did I know, this damn game would end up costing me way more than that.

Naturally, I get the game and bring it home and play a little bit on tour. I made my character and jammed a bit, all fun. Then I decided to check out the Song Shop and start downloadin' some tunes. First thing I did was download "Still Alive" from Portal because it was free and free is good. Once that's done, I go to download another song to find out my Wii only had 41 blocks of memory left. 41 blocks. The song was 182 blocks.

Fuck. No.

So now I needed an SD card for the Wii. I went out and bought two 2-Gig SD cards for 14.99 each. One for DLC songs and one for back up because I'll need more space eventually. Rock Band 2 has now cost me 60 dollars, 70 after tax. 30 bucks cheaper than the whole Rock Band bundle I got for Christmas. So I try out the cards and I guess the Wii needs 200 free blocks in order to use SD mode. That's lame. So I had to move a bunch of VC games and some channels to make things fit. I ended up having to erase my Rock Band 2 file I already had because it took up 52 blocks and couldn't be moved. So now I have enough space to use SD mode. I buy 2000 Wii points, that's 20 dollars, 2 dollars a song. Rock Band 2 has now cost me 90 dollars. 10 dollars short of Rock Band 1 bundle.

So congrats, video game industry, you've finally gotten me to pay well over the asking price for a game. I hope you're all happy with yourselves.

Now if you'll excuse me, "Savior" by Rise Against is calling me...

Confirmed: Lego Rock Band = Awesome, Band Hero = Terrible [Aug. 19th, 2009|03:34 pm]
t3hteeks
First, look at the track list confirmed for LEGO Rock Band thus far;

"A-Punk" Vampire Weekend
"Accidentally In Love" Counting Crows
"Aliens Exist" Blink 182
"Breakout" Foo Fighters
"The Final Countdown" Europe
"Girls and Boys" Good Charlotte
"Ghostbusters" Ray Parker Jr.
"Kung Fu Fighting" Carl Douglas
"In Too Deep" Sum 41
"I Want You Back" Jackson 5
"Monster" The Automatic
"Ruby" Kaiser Chiefs
"So What" Pink
"Song 2" Blur
"Tick Tick Boom" The Hives
"You Give Love a Bad Name" Bon Jovi

Most of these songs are on my iPod. Thus making it awesome so far.

Now look at Activisions sad attempt at a family friendly Guitar Hero, Band Hero's setlist thus far;

"ABC" Jackson 5
"American Pie" Don McLean
"Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" KT Tunstall
"Dirty Little Secret" The All-American Rejects
"Every Rose Has Its Thorn" Poison
"Just a Girl" No Doubt
"Let's Dance" David Bowie
"Love Story" Taylor Swift
"Picture to Burn" Taylor Swift
"She Will Be Loved" Maroon 5
"Sugar, We're Goin Down" Fall Out Boy
"Take What You Take" Lily Allen
"Thnks fr th Mmrs" Fall Out Boy
"Turn Off the Light" Nelly Furtado
"You Belong With Me" Taylor Swift
Box Art for the "Band in a Box" version of Band Hero shows that Duffy, Duran Duran, Robbie Williams & Kylie Minogue and the Spice Girls will all feature in the game as well.

Now, I'll admit to liking The Jackson 5, The All-American Rejects, David Bowie, Fall Out Boy, Maroon 5 and I can even argue that Taylor Swift is a good little artists, but the rest of that list there is pretty terrible. I mean, the Spice Girls and "Every Rose Has It's Thorn?" God that's awful.


I'd also like to point out that in Lego Rock Band, one of the scenes involves you rocking so hard you make a building collapse and that's kind of awesome
