Rock Band is my most favorite video game in the history of all video games.  I’m by no means good at it (I usually recruit someone to split drumming/kickpedaling duties with me, and have been known to fail singing on Easy) but I love it like no other.  I even draw nerdy literary comics about it. And this week, I made Rock Band cupcakes.

They’d be really nice to make if you were having people over for a Rock Band night.  (Do those exist?  They should.  If you host one, invite me over.  Perhaps I’ll bring cupcakes.)

On a somewhat related note, have you seen the trailer for The Beatles: Rock Band yet?  I’m pretty stoked.

It’s summer vacation, and that means it’s time to enjoy a bunch of things I didn’t have time for last semester.

Summer To Do Mosaic

From left to right, beginning with the top row:

1. Read my first graphic novel, Watchmen.  I’ve just finished reading it for the first time, and it surpassed all my expectations.  I need to read it again, then read Dash’s thesis on it and see the movie.

2. Watch the entirety of Firefly.

3. Go camping.

4. Make various DIY crafts.  I have in mind an earring organizer and a wallet woven from paint samples.

5. Learn how to decorate cupcakes using marzipan.

6. Play my first game of D&D.  See what all the fuss is about.

7. Attend BFD 2009, with The Offspring and MC Lars.

8. Pick up guitar again.  I’m not very good, but Davin is super patient.  Perhaps this summer I will vanquish my foe, the bar chord.

9. Keep running and swimming so that I don’t lapse back out of shape before I resume swim class in the fall.

What else should I do?  And what’s on your list?
