Rock Band DLC, Week of 4 January

The first week of January 2011 and the first DLC to go along with it. Another large pack and a (primarily) single-artist week, but it’s a heck of an artist to start. Rock Band introduces the one and only Johnny Cash. * “Cry, Cry, Cry” * “Don’t Take Your Guns to Town” * “Five Feet High and Rising” * “Folsom Prison Blues” * “I Got Stripes” * “I Walk the Line” + * “Tennessee Flat […]

Loot Rundown, 2010

Christmas! And what is Christmas? Loot! (Yes it is and you know it.) I didn’t do these for a couple of years and later regretted it because I’m really sort of anal about knowing whens. I suppose I could do it in a private entry, or even personal offline journals, but then I lose the “LOOKIT MAH STUFFS” factor and really that is huge. So, LOOKIT MAH STUFFS. Made out fantastic this year, proving as […]

To: You. A Christmas Story. Love, Me.

As it so often does, the holiday season barged into my life well before I was actually ready for it this year. Christmas. It’s not just a word, it’s an idea. A concept. A lifestyle, for some. For me, when I was forced to acknowledge that the year was in fact getting ready to loop on me again, I was going through one of my … let’s say “less appreciative” times. Never pleasant, but often […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 21 December

So this is Christmas, and what have we got? An interesting assortment of eight singles, making a nice break from the huge packs of the past couple months. These tracks are mostly non-English language, and consequently not readily known, at least by me. Except the first one. I think I’ve heard that one before. John & Yoko, The Plastic Ono Band – “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” Anaïs – “Peut-Être une Angine” BB Brunes – […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 14 December

Right on schedule as previously announced, this week we have a honkin’ big pack of Billy Joel, thus continuing the trend of Crap I Really Want in Rock Band.

Rock Band DLC, Week of 7 December

Christmas coming to us a bit early this year it seems. So there’s this little group you may have heard of. You may have thought to yourself, “They need keyboards. They need harmonies. They need RB3.” And now they have it. HMX will give it to us one more time. Queen. In not one, but TWO packs. Mmm.   Queen Extravaganza Pack 01 “Hammer to Fall” + “Keep Yourself Alive” + “Now I’m Here” + […]
