10 Songs From My iPod That I Want To Play In Guitar Hero

April 15th, 2009 3 comments

For my birthday this year, my family got me Guitar Hero World Tour and Guitar Hero Aerosmith for the Xbox 360. In my opinion, Guitar Hero is the best game ever made! I have an extensive music background from when I was a kid (thanks, Mom!), so I’ve always like to play music. Guitar Hero helps fill a void in playing a “real” instrument, and allows me to jam with my family. We have the whole kits – two guitars, drums and a mic – so we can play together. It simply rocks!

As a result of playing so much GH, I now cannot listen to the radio (and neither can my son) without thinking whether a particular song would be good for GH. Scanning through my iPod today, I came up with these 10 songs that I would love to play on Guitar Hero. I’d absolutely love to hear what you’d like to play!

  1. The Chemicals Between Us – Bush
  2. Tusk – Fleetwood Mac
  3. Awake – Godsmack
  4. Work – Jars of Clay
  5. Somewhere I Belong – Linkin Park
  6. Smooth – Santana
  7. Mudshovel – Staind
  8. A Forest – The Cure
  9. With Or Without You – U2
  10. White Wedding – Part 1 – Billy Idol

What songs would you like to play on Guitar Hero or Rock Band?

Illegal Alien Trash Dumps

April 13th, 2009 No comments

This month I participated in my first “12 of 12,” which is a photography thing where you take tons of pictures (usually with a theme) on the 12th of the month and post the 12 best pictures. For my first go at this endeavor, I chose to take pictures of an Illegal Alien Trash Dump sitting on the outskirts of Tucson, AZ. We all know that illegal immigration into the United States has a host of problems associated, but the trashing of our environment is not one that often comes to mind. I invite you to view these 12 pictures I took, and consider what impact this has on our country.
