Insert power ballad here

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Eighth wonder of the world. Guitar Hero II for the Playstation 2.
This game has overtaken me, and Ali is starting to crave it now too.
The concept is simple - you use the controller, which is the "guitar" pictured above, and you have to play various songs using the color coded buttons. Let me tell you, this would be a blast at any get together.
As you can see, I was really belting out a power ballad to Ali last night before I headed out the door to work.

In other news, I had to drop off my car at my mechanic's last week, and decided to go with my parents to Bemidji Minnesota for a day of shopping. Bemidji is a nice town, with a nice feel to it. It's on the lake, and it's a small town feel with big city shopping. The Target, 24 hour Wal-Mart, and Herberger's are a few of our favorites.
It's so nice there, my parents make the 1.5 hour trip every second week or so. My dad even said he would like to live there, and giving that he really doesn't say much about living anywhere, that's a big deal.
This is where I bought my game that forever changed my view of guitar playing. Ali has her guitar, I now have mine. I think I'll name him Joey. It goes with Ramona quite nicely.

For goodness sakes - Ramona's name has nothing to do with the Ramones. Nothing!
Joey is a good name though - so I guess I'll let it slide.
So now we have Ramona, Mack and Joey...quite the combination...

Well you certainly look like you are having fun with it.

I still maintain that it is harder than playing a real guitar...

I think I will name my guitar... @^*&*$!!! Because that is what the cartoon bubble over my head says that I'm saying to it every time I play.

Wii Guitar Hero? Now THAT could be good. A sensor in the guitar and another on the right arm so it would know when you were windmilling or striking a killer pose...

Rock chef,

never thought of the windmill... now I really can't wait til GH gets on the wii. It should be out next year.

I agree it is harder than playing real guitar. Of course I stink at both so maybe that has something to do with it. I still need ot pick this up so I can stop using my friends for their Guitar hero capabilities.
