A proposal (not sure on the degree of modesty)

Freshly flush with xmas cash, I began looking for deals on video games; including my fuel for my addiction to plastic instrument-based rhythm gaming. Looking at the most recent entries Band Hero and Lego Rock Band to realize that between both games there were about ten songs I liked and around one hundred songs of varying degrees of crap. As I pondered this I realized the same thing about the on-disc songs of the games I own (Sturgeon's Law triumphs again!), but that 90% of the songs I had bought as DLC were awesome.

So he's the proposal: next major iteration of each franchise (GH6, RB3) ships with the no songs on disc, you get the full game engine and all the modes, but no songs just credit to download 60-80 songs from the online store and all the songs you would have put on a disc launching as DLC on the same day, allowing the user base to pick and choose what they want, making everyone happy. Or at least make me happy, which is all that really matters.

An open letter

Dear conservative Christian types,

It the time of year you guys stop uppity about the lack of passages from Exodus in the constitution, and start getting annoyed with the phrase "Happy Holidays" and begin ranting about the increased secularization of this time of year, which used to be all yours. This is not an attempt to marginalize or insult you all (for real, seriously) it's mostly just decent people trying to avoid insulting all the non-christians as the western world becomes increasingly multi-cultural and more and more religions seem to pop up.

On the other hand, I can see how you'd be upset that one group is co-opting one of your biggest festivals of the year, isn't that right guys?
Irony is a bitch, isn't it?
