Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

I'm ADDICTED.. and I can't help it... I never in my life thought I would love a video game... NEVER... but this isn't your ordinary video game I guess....
My son bought...

I have never laughed so much.. I have never ignored so many things in my life to rock out to this!! Ok.. I'll admit it.. back in the 80's/90's I had my fair share of Rock Out Days.. YES.. I was one of those girls who used a can of aqua net a week.. ( sorry.. wasn't aware of the ozone back then like I am now.. or should I truly say I didn't care back then?). I saw so many bands in concert... and even went to a Motley Crue concert severely sick with Mononucleosis .. I landed in the hospital two days later... I had lost 30lbs that summer running the roads.. hanging out with friends.. working... and waiting to see the next hair band. You secretly want to know who my favorite band was??????? GUESS!!! That is if you remember the hair bands!! LOL LOL!!
Would I shock you if I told you my basement has Albums ( yes those record things) with "original" album covers to some bands back then.
A girl friend and I use to run to the record stores ( remember those) and grab the album the day it came out because we KNEW that the covers would soon be "banned" from the public.. thanks to Tipper Gore ( we weren't fans of hers back in the day)... But now being a mother.. I can understand WHY she went that route...
So now in my basement I have album covers that wouldn't SHOCK the public now.. like they would have 20 years ago...

That went a direction I didn't plan... so back to the Rock Band.. NONE of the boys that come and play want to sing... sooooooooooo GUESS who gets to sing... YUP.. you're "talking" to her!! I got to say... I usually kick the other members butt's with the final score.. my highest... 99% on Expert.. Thank You Bon Jovi for the endless nights and days running around singing your songs.. when others thought it would get me NO WHERE.. boy were they WRONG!!! It got me to be the TOP PERFORMER on ROCK BAND!!!!!! WOO HOO!!! LOL LOL LOL...
And something I realized... I guess I NEVER really knew all the TRUE words to Hungry Like the Wolf... ooopsss Sorry Duran Duran...

NOW!! What I would like to see.. is some Contemporary Christian Rock Band Groups!! Hey.. a Girl Can dream... right?

I am right there with you! My son got Rock Band for Christmas (though it is the 1st one). I love it! The boys prefer the drums and guitar although my son will sing, but most of the time I do the singing and we turn it up loud to get the full effect.

I am sure the neighbors are loving us!

YOU are such a GIRL after my own Heart! Trying to keep that contained in my NEW MOM form sometimes is hard. LOL OOO Motley Crue! Hey did you ever imagine that you would be bonding with your teenage son and his friends with a video game with BIG HAIR BANDS....HOW FUN IS THAT! Since my guys are still very young...we do not own video game thingys...I guess that will be in my future..I will remember this so that I can BOND with my BOYS tooo..LOL I loved this post

Oh I am so jealous, I am still at the easy level for guitar, drums and singing. So far guitar seems to be what I can do best. :)

We have Rock Band and I have to be honest and say that we haven't used it since the week we bought it. I'm just not crazy about it--probably since I have no sense of rhythm I just can't do it. And I hate to lose all the time! :)
