Apparently, every kid in school and every government employee got Wednesday off. I don’t ever remember getting Veteran’s Day off when I was in grade/high school. This may be a new thing, or possibly an Arizona thing. But anyway, I was the only person riding the bus in the morning and afternoon.

economic crisis: even National Geographic is cutting backSaving money is on everyone’s mind, so the Wednesday night fun involved a few free game demos over at Steve’s place. I got the demos for “Band Hero” and “Guitar Hero 5″, which use the same game engine. Play is pretty much the same as Rock Band, but the Guitar Hero Official Brand Identity Interface is much worse than Rock Band’s. The notes are harder to see, and the multiplier/star power indicators are much smaller than they should be. Too bad. Oh well.
