I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

The Beatles Rock Band

My friend Tom Mitsos recently moved from his parents' house into his very own apartment. I borrowed my father's pick-up truck and helped Tom to load up all of his belongings. That consisted of a couple of boxes, some furniture and clothing, and, of course, his Beatles Rock Band set-up. Sure, he offered me Subway a week before as payment, but the real payment was getting to play Beatles Rock Band with him, my friend Adam, and my lovely girlfriend Amy (who I actually believe is miles beyond Ringo when it comes to playing the drums - MILES). Some have argued that this game gets boring because you play songs by the same band all day, but with four singers (I originally wrote "three singers," but then I remembered Ringo) and a versatile catalog of original material The Beatles have proven why they deserve their own Rock Band. Can you say the same thing of Green Day?
