Long live rock, I need it every night

Video Games Killed the Radio Star

Another sign that I am quickly losing touch.

First this:

All Things Considered, April 12, 2008 - In May 2004, a composer named Nobuo Uematsu joined the Los Angeles Philharmonic for a single performance of his most famous work. The show sold out in three days. In fact, there was almost a riot at the box office when people couldn't get tickets.

What was the music? Uematsu's soundtrack for the popular video game Final Fantasy. [Read More].

And now this:

LOS ANGELES (Reuters), April 16, 2008 - In a nod to the ascendancy of video games, rock 'n' roll bad boys Motley Crue became the first group to release a new single through Rock Band, said the developer of the wildly popular game.

"Saints of Los Angeles," the first single from the group's upcoming album, became available for download for 99 cents this week via Microsoft Corp's Xbox Live Marketplace and on Thursday via Sony Corp's PlayStation store, said Viacom Inc's MTV Games. [Read More]

Apparently, I need to play more video games or risk missing out on some new music. So for the philanthropic, please send me a Wii ASAP. No XBox360, or PlayStation8. Too many confusing buttons. If the AARP endorses the Wii, it seems like the perfect fit for me.

Though I can be convinced to go back to playing SuperNintendo too...

I can't believe these photos didn't generate any comments. So I will comment on the lack of comments for such commentable photos.

Check out these crazy looking old people with their computer magic.

And how about this hot young lass all tangled up?
