The Inspirational Celina Rei in the Los Angeles Times

leave a comment »

How wild is that? Yes, she is definitely above the fold, and great picture too! She looks so cute! I am very proud (and so very jelly). The gist of the article dealt with the issue of women making a name for themselves in a male dominated career. I don’t think I’m a hardcore feminist or anything, but I do love seeing women making career moves in my life. So I guess besides being an awesome tennis player, sports junkie, clothes lover, Hello Kitty fiend, etc etc… my friend Celina Rei is my inspiration too. I could only hope that one day (hopefully soon) someone will think I contributed enough or made enough of a difference… So I too can be an inspirational woman and have an article written about me. 😉

New Rockband Song…

leave a comment »

Well… I am not sure how new it is but Ed just told me about a few new songs — two in German and one in French. This is the French one — I like the tempo because I can probably play this on expert. 🙂

My New Rockband Drum Score

with one comment

Woo-hoo! New achievement for me! I got a 68% playing the hard mode on drums for Iron Maiden’s “Run To The Hills” and yes, I know… It is not a high score at all. But I passed — I usually die out before getting halfway through. I find that when I play Rockband with my brother Ed or my friend Andrew, I play on harder difficulties and they help me to be a better drummer (because they are so awesome).

Lol at “Unconscious” — Ed said the video game was asking if I was sleeping.

My Rockband Drumming Progress

leave a comment »

Ok, so not really a big deal, but it is for me. I am living proof that anything is possible with many many hours of practice and lots of focus/concentration. 😛

My Rockband Score For “The Hand That Feeds” on Hard

So the above one isn’t all that impressive — I was so close to getting a score of 100% though! Which I have not yet… and I’m not sure if I could even do it on the easier songs.

Emerald Sword from Rhapsody, Rock Band kits, double bass

Some people are really crazy — gotta show this to the peeps at work so they know I am not addicted… Or maybe I am because I am watching this stuff and sharing with everyone… Whatever.
