My younger brother introduced me to guitar hero last week--very fun. He has it with his xbox 360 and just about everyone in our family likes simulating the "monsters of rock" experience and seeing the crowd get pumped up while your "guitar character" jams on-screen.
An unrelated thought: today when Ivy and I made lunch I tried out my old college food staple that some of my Asian roommates had mocked me unceasingly for: cheese rice. It's been 10 years since I last had it (rice with cheese on top--shredded mozzarella and provolone in this case, always microwaved to perfection) and the fond memories came back to me. I'm doing my part to help East meet West.
