As an apartment-warming and belated birthday present (oh yeah, I’m officially twenty-three), a friend of mine sent me and my two San Fran roommates a copy of Rock Band for Wii. It arrived in an Amazon box so big the UPS guy could barely speak while carrying up the stairs. Even once I got it open, I had no clue what could be inside. I stared at the blue cloth sack it was wrapped in–since it was too big for wrapping paper–and wondered if someone had sent up a midget in a coffin.

Of course, when I opened it up, I realized it was the perfect apartment present: it brings the three of us together, plus we can piss off our new neighbors. After only a few nights of note strumming, we’ve already received a note under our door telling us to rock out less hard. Oops.

While playing Rock Band, standing between my fiancé on drums and our buddy on guitar, I sometimes can’t help but think of it as the threesome game. We already know that the Wii is the system of swingers. Heck, if I sprung for a base guitar it could be a straight-up orgy. That would really piss off the neighbors.

    There are just so many puns to make.

    Though I apologize for this one in advance, I had not heard it till recently, but a friend’s sister made the comment while the two of us were playing Guitar Hero: “Jam out with you clam out.”

    Yeahhhhh I bombed the song after that cause I couldn’t stop laughing.

    Also, there is the distinct possibility that after hearing some of the songs played 10 or 20 times the neighbors would welcome the noise of an orgy over say Sabotage.

    Sorry, I’d give some thoughtful response, but I’m still stuck on the idea of “jamming out with your clam out” :).

    You have no idea how spot on you are about this. Or maybe you do. ;)

    Oh trust me, I know exactly what I’m talking about. Not in this current arrangement of people, but… Heck, I’m going to see you in a month and change. Remind me to tell you about it ;).

    I once played Rockband at one of the other local gamestores. I was playing drums and this one girl was playing guitar. After 2 hours we got a microphone so I gave another customer the chance to play the drums and went on the mic…. I could sing two songs before they snatched the mic out of my hand. Though my vocals are already not the best. My WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII at the improvising parts really didn’t help either.

  6. Bonnie Ruberg Says:

    Dude, you got in two hours of Rockband in a public place? Whether or not you can sing that’s a pretty impressive streak! When I’m in a Target I can barely ever bring myself to wrestle controllers from the hands of greedy seven-year-olds.

    Let it be noted that I considered calling our band “Three-Way”, but I figured our flatmate’s out-of-town girlfriend might not appreciate the joke.

    So very true. So very true.

    Bonnie I am great friends with all employees of the Digifan. The customers usually think I am an employee myself so basically only some asked if they could. and those two hours weren’t everything all together it was 5 hours and the employees themself snatched the microphone because they found it a bad idea to let me ruin a mic that still needs to be sold. So after the mic was snatched I went on the drums again.

  10. Bonnie Ruberg Says:

    I’m curious which instrument you prefer. I find myself still leaning toward guitar, though drums are a nice challenge. I still haven’t warmed up to vocals, but I do enjoy watching the wind sock move up and down as I make or miss notes…

  11. Soulofaqua Says:

    I prefer the drums as a condition with my health makes fine motoring skills difficult. Wich immediately makes it difficult to reach more than buttons on the guitar. With the singing part I don’t know much of those songs wich makes it less enjoyable and also even less appealing for those who are in hearing distance.

  12. Bonnie Ruberg Says:

    Yeah, when I don’t know the songs I find myself humming along, trying to follow the ups and downs of the windsock. Sometimes it works surprisingly well, but it’s sure not a lot to listen to :).
