...but my unscientific speculation and gut says the shimmer won't last long. Here's hoping to the survival of stupid gags and other funny Coco business. Either way, what a case study.
I got a Wii this wiikend. DID YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE? It's red, and it looks like a candy bar. However, it is not edible and it plays video games.
It was also a very calculated, well-thought-out and educated purchase.
THE WOMAN: What do you want to do tonight?
ME: I dunno. We've been going out a lot. Let's just stay in. I don't feel like getting ready and driving and blah blah blah. It's bad when you've forgotten what your house looks like at night.
THE WOMAN: Okay. Movies?
ME: Due Date?
THE WOMAN: I wish you had video games. That'd be bad ass.
She plays video games a lot. She has a DS and gets giddy over the Mario Bros. franchise.
ME: Like a Wii?
THE WOMAN: OH MY GOD LET'S GET A WII PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
But Beatles Rock Band! That's good, yes? YES? Please say yes.
I'm not too familiar with purchasing a game console since I never really had an interest in buying one myself, but I was blown away by Nintendo's remarkable up-sell structure.
You buy a console at a very sexy price.
But you need games. So you need to purchase games.
You also need other controllers if you want to play with others.
You also need credits to purchase older games.
And you need little straps to avoid throwing your controllers at your television.
And you also need batteries.
Don't forget to buy the complimentary joystick. You'll need that to play many other games.
At first I was like ~_~
Then I was like O____O
It must suck to be a parent.

THE TONY: yeah at first it was subliminal, like i started singing it in my head then i realized it was playing in the STORE! im going to get to the bottom of this
"I'm going to get to the bottom of this."
Dave Barnes was really kick-ass when he was making sick pop-soul jams. I hope he gets back to that someday. I'm sure pandering to 38-year-old Grey's Anatomy fans will eventually get boring.
No offense, Dave.
WHOA. Props to The Rob for this killer track:
Put this on with headphones. *To the tune of Oprah's voice* Guhh-looo-rrriii-ouuuss!!!
You actually did the Oprah voice in your head, didn't you? Ass.
