Its funny how impossible dreams manifest

I haven't posted in over a month. Most likely that's due to the pre-xmas hustle and bustle, and the post-xmas PlayStation 3 Rock Band drumming. Thanks A!

Yeah, I tried the singing (Simon wouldn't tell me I'm horrible, but I wouldn't make it to Hollywood) and the guitar, but the drums have me hooked. I'm trying to get past the medium level tour to unlock the rumored "Tom Sawyer" track. Yeah, I know, its a cover band, not Rush, but its still a Rush song, even if the vocals and drumming suck. the point is, I can finally play Neil's fills without having to really learn the drums and join a band, or look like a complete douche and air-drum (which every Rush fan does anyway, douchebaggery be damned).

Anyway, here's a sweet Windows app that lets you plug your Rock Band drums into the USB port of your computer and use them as a real drum machine!

Thanks to TechRepublic for finding this one (Rush reference included).

Oh, and the boys have extended the Snakes and Arrows tour, and are reportedly reworking the set list. See you in Ft. Lauderdale!

UPDATE: A got skybox tix to the Ft. Lauderdale show through her job (for free!) and we unlocked the Tom Sawyer cover Friday night. Yeah, its not a good remake.
