I'm game, although I don't really have an outlet to practice.

I've never played Rock Band, but I've heard it's great, so I'd definitely be up for Rock Band parties.

Dang it, I tried to play Guitar Hero last week and I was worse than the 8 year old I was playing with. So, when you guys are having sweet awesome Guitar Hero tournaments this fall and you need someone who is really terrible to make you feel better about yourselves, just call me up.

Yeah, it's basically the same. I find Rockband a little more difficult because the rectangle notes seem smaller than the circular notes in Guitar hero, but it's not a big deal.

Hopefully someone is decent at drums and vocals - I'm horrible at both of those. It seems like most people I know only bother to learn one instrument. My friend held the online score records for several songs on drums (he's insanely good), but can barely do guitar.

AHHH. I wish I had known, I'm trying to sell my Wii and I already have Mario Kart and two wheels and some other stuff. I would have cut you a nice deal!


=( Two hours after I won it on ebay someone also posted an add on craigslist in my area for the exact same price I paid with 15 more games plus Mario Kart and the wheel...I'm trying to block these incidents out of my head because I refuse to have buyers remorse!

I haven't played in a long time, but I was pretty good at drums. I'm certainly not setting any records, but I could handle myself on hard for most songs and expert for the easier ones. I always wanted to play real drums when I was young, but my parents didn't like the idea of listening to that in the house, so when rock band came out I was finally able to semi-fulfill my dream.

I just watched the documentary "A Lawyer Walks Into a Bar." I'm not sure I will want to join you people in the Fall...I'm definitely not ever taking the bar in California. Someone had posted on a thread (not sure which one) how great this movie was...that person clearly wanted to improve his or her chances of getting off a waitlist. Bastard.

I bookmarked a couple of the books but haven't gotten around to ordering them... mostly because I haven't even gotten around to reading "Getting to Maybe" yet.

I re-read To Kill a Mockingbird, since I read it in Jr. High and didn't really remember it. I really liked it. I'd imagine it's on a different reading level than everything else, though. (But I haven't really looked at anything else on the list to verify that.)

I'm saving Getting to Maybe for last. Most of the reading list seems to be on the "fun" side [A Civil Action, The Man To See]. I'm also getting through Thinking Like a Lawyer, slowly but surely.

I read A Civil Action in a week and got halfway through Blank Slate in 2 months (before I put it down), if that tells y'all anything about the relative entertainment value of the two books. I'm going to start Remains of the Day but I always struggle to stay interested in fiction.

I think A Civil Action is the only one I'm really likely to read.

I'm hoping to do a moderate amount of reading this summer, I have done little to no reading since I graduated last year. I have been reading the same book for a month.

I read Remains of the Day in high school. It has its value, though I found it to be kind of slow. It has a lot of flashbacks.

For books, I really enjoyed law school confidential and I've heard enough good things about getting to maybe that I might give it a shot.


Crap, I'm so behind on games...the last game system that I owned was Nintendo 64.

I have a Super NES if anyone is interested.

I loved Super NES.

Also, one of my fav. games of all time was the original American release of Final Fantasy on the original Nintendo gaming system.

Classic game...
