I beg to differ. I'm not an addict. I'm just overly enthusiastic, obsessive, hands down won over by a video game.

To my past self who thought that this day would never come, I have two words -- ROCK BAND!

It has only been two days and yet I have blinded my eyes with the shifting colors of green, red, yellow and blue; calloused my hands from banging the drums; twitched my fingers to play those guitar riffs; drowned my ears from relentless repetition of “Don't Stop Believing”; strained my vocal chords power belting “It's My Life”; and drained my pockets of my allowance next week.

Where did I go wrong? I have done what many failed to do-- countered “Counterstrike”, defended against “Defense of the Ancients (DOTA)”, and planted “Plants vs. Zombies” in the trash. But I was powerless against Rock Band.

Technology gets you one way or the other. It catches up. Inevitably.

My sweetest downfall, my favorite regret-- Rock Band.

Welcome to the dark side.>:) The person who introduced you to Rock Band is a genius and probably a God send. *wink* Oh yes, sweetest downfall but never regret Rock Band.
