Why can’t you play a fucking G?

So I was talking to a friend of mine recently, he happens to live in the US, but I don’t hold that against him. He was telling me that he’d gotten into an argument with a couple of his friends .. over how they were doing when playing Rock Band. He’s up to Expert level, but the others are still down at Medium because, in his opinion, they’re not practicing enough and when they get together, instead of playing the game hard out, they spend too much time chatting and drinking.

He seemed quite put out that I nearly fell down laughing my ass off at this, but really, I couldn’t help it. The notion of a pretend band actually having a real-world rock-star style fight fills me with joy.

I did ask him if he said “I am fucking CARRYING this fucking band!” but he says he did not. I wish he had. Apparently he also didn’t say to his friends “You’ve changed, man.” nor did he tell them that “It used to be about the music”.

I hope he quits the band to start a solo project. That’s the perfect ending.

  1. Does the game come with virtual groupies for the band members to have pretend sex with and then throw away like used cyber-tissues? And ersatz digital drugs to go with the pretend rock’n roll?

    Just curious.

    1. Well, the Rock Band thing was funny to me because a pretend rock band is acting like a real rock band. WoW raid groups? I’ve never seen how a real group of magical warriors acts, so I don’t know if pretend magical warrior drama is accurate enough to be funny.
