Bealtes Rock Band logo

Two of my favourite things in the world together at last! However, not impressed with the idea really… A little apprehensive. You can’t blame me for feeling conflicted.

I’m coming around after reading about it here but I still don’t know how to feel… Sounds like it could be cool… Three part harmonies… ok.

Oh, and there’s a trailer right here.

And I just watched it and I do believe I’m sold. Like really sold. My heart is beating faster in my chest in fact as I mark the release date of September 9th on my calendar. What a journey that was this morning, but you’ve got me hook, line, and sinker. That progression that you saw there should be a case study in marketing. So much money to be made from suckers like me.

hey now hey now
