Three different hero related things:

1. GUITAR HERO II: I Think I May Have Been Bugged

I don't know who this would apply to exactly, but it's either Sony, Harmonix Music Systems, or RedOctane. One of those video-game-related companies has been stalking me. At least that's the first and, of course, most rational conclusion I can come to after reading about the forthcoming sequel to the popular PlayStation 2 game, Guitar Hero.

The list of songs for Guitar Hero II has at least three songs that I have specifically wished to be added to the game. This happened with friends, during many discussions concerning hypothetical playlists. But I definitely named the following songs in our conversations:
"War Pigs/Luke's Wall" by Black Sabbath
"Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns n' Roses
"Shout at the Devil" by Mötley Crüe
Actually now that I think about it, maybe one of my friends was bugged. That would make more sense considering that I don't actually own a PS2. No, wait, maybe one of my friends was IN ON IT. If I find out that it was one of you, I will demand an adequate portion of your stipend.

2. HEROES: The TV Show

They showed a marathon of this a few Sundays ago and I tivoed it for god knows what reason. It's pretty good and pretty addictive. It does a fair job of bringing comics to a "real" setting, although it can be alternately confusing and extremely obvious at times. But I do like how the guy who can paint the future can only do it after shooting up. That's funny. Anyways, I'm hooked. Anyone else? Goddamn I can't wait until 24 is back on.

3. I'M NOT A HERO: My Chemical Romance Update

I am now addicted to My Chemical Romance and I'm having a lot of trouble explaining it. Mostly, I can't. Except I can say that every MCR song rawks. I can't get sick of the second album, and when I do I just listen to the new one and then go back to the second one. Not cool.

Anyways, my current favorite part on the new MCR album is on the first single "Welcome to the Black Parade" where Gerard Way sings "I'm just a man / not a hero" and then the entire song punctuates the line "I - Don’t – Care!" and it does a drum break and the chorus comes crashing in for the last time. Awesome. Also, it has to do with heroes.

It pleases me to see I'm not the only one having the same problem. The MCR thing that is.

You have good taste. My Chemical Romance is the best band ever. You should check out their first album, if you don't have it. "I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love" is an amazing piece of work.
