Every year there is some game that shatters the narrow confines of the industry. Last year it might have been Katamari. This year -- Guitar Hero. A hefty investment of $85 for the controller and game, it has already changed our house after one day. Will it last forever? Doubtful. But considering it is the same cost as going to an NFL game, it is an amazining cheap source of entertainment. Rock on!

Books: Sadness of Sex by Barry Yourgrau
Sophia got me this book for Christmas from my Amazon wishlist. I didn't realize it was going to be short stories. And I didn't know anything about Barry Yourgrau. Very funny. Very thought provoking. One comment that matches my impression is "...they have the uninhibited honesty of a dream being recounted by someone who's not yet wide awake."
I'm planning on doing a couple of essays on some of the individual stories that catch my interest. It'll keep me busy for a couple of weeks worth of blogging.
Now go buy the book so you can follow along.
