Look what’s coming for XBOX!

Kinect is a new gaming system that works with XBOX360.  It looks like a body movement game system somewhat like the Wii but there are NO controllers.  The problem with the Wii controllers are that sometimes they slip off your wrist and crash into your television.  No problem like that with Kinect.

You can check out Kinect and all of the new games that will be available for the system here. I want one!!!!

The book “Off the Bus and On the Record” includes “22 Candid Rock Interviews by the Teen Journalists of the Rock Star”. One of those interviews being with Rooney.

“The reader will be exposed to a very personal side of each artists and gain insight to what really goes on backstage of a concert; it is an opportunity to see artists in a new light,” said Zac.

Brittany noted that the interviews could not be compared to interviews that appear on MTV. According to Brittany, the musicians were more personable around “low-key teenagers” like the Rich siblings. She added that many of the interviews occurred “while the musicians were still living out of vans, before they were media trained.”

“The book includes old interviews from bands before they became huge such as Fallout Boy, Maroon 5, and My Chemical Romance,” said Zac.

Popdose mentions that even though “most musicians are still crass, dull, selfabsorbed, and none too bright” Rooney comes of as “bright and funny, without being puerile”.

Unlock Rock Band Game?



Did you get Rock Band over the holidays and are frustrated with the “unlocking” of the songs?

Harmonix has introduced “game modifiers”

into “Rock Band 2,” which includes such options as a long-needed no fail mode — and a secret song-unlock code.

The catch? You need to know the code! But we’ve already figured that out for you. You simply input the original “Rock Band” unlock code — Red, Yellow, Blue, Red, Red, Blue, Blue, Red, Yellow, Blue — in the game modifier screen.

Once the code is entered, the unlock song modifier will be unlocked. Voila! You have just unlocked all of the songs available in “Rock Band 2.”
