LOL, you got me.
Michael, did you listen to the Rob sermon from two weeks ago, where he correctly points out that if people were to put as much time into practicing an actual guitar as they did playing guitar hero, that they would easily be playing the songs they're now pretending to play?
Stef, I need to catch up on Bell. With my classwork this semester, I have been behind. Heck, I didn't even know anyone had responded to this thread.
I don't own or play Guitar Hero, not since I freaked out one night while watching other people play it.
I was sitting at my best friend's home, and his three children were all taking turns play the game. I was talking to my friend and his wife, but I was passively starring at the dots and lines scroll the screen. At some point, I turn my head and out of the corner of my eye, they have an impressionist-like painting on the wall. The painting was moving. I was not sure whether it was moving, so I shook my head and looked again. It had stopped.
Five or ten minutes later, I turned my head in that direction again, and again, the painting was moving. It was swaying in and out, it was like there was a three dimensional quality to the painting. I asked about whether the painting was meant to do that. My friend and his wife did not understand what I was asking. After a minute the painting was not moving but I started to become concerned for my eyesight. I am legally blind, and I started to wonder if I was developing a problem.
Twenty or thirty minutes later, again, I had been starring at the screen talking to my friend's wife, and I look up at their ceiling, which is textured, and the ceiling is doing the same thing as the painting was doing. I freak out, yell, and scream that something is going on or I am losing my sight.
After some thought, we figured out that it was from watching Guitar Hero on the TV. My friend and his sons could recreate it. Then it became an actual activity - watch the screen and find something in the room that was cool to look at as it warped in and out and up.
