Say You Want a Revolution

Tim owns an XBox. Although I usually fall deeply in love with any type of technology, I have never cared for the XBox that Tim enjoys so much. I don't care to shoot things. I don't care to score the hockey goal. I have never been interested in spending my time with trolls and elves while trying to through a golden ring into a volcano. Yet, I believe that the XBox and myself may have found some common ground.

The other day, I was searching for some gift ideas for Tim when I discovered this game called Karaoke Revolution for Xbox. To me, it looks like the glue to mend this chasm that has developed between the Xbox and myself. First, this game has everything I like.

1. A Microphone
2. Song lyrics that bounce across the screen.
3. I can earn points for singing.
4. I can do this at home with friends or more pathetically, by myself.

Even better, you can download songs from XBox live to add to your Karaoke Revolution when you tire of the songs on the disc. I think I will pine for this purchase until I can no longer stand it and MUST buy it.

I can relate to being an widow to the Xbox. My fiance loves it and will play it for hours. Luckily he goes in spurts. A week here, a week there.

Sounds like a fantastic Valentine's Day gift from the man at the other end of the chasm.

Sara,
Need I say anything? You know my love affair with xbox continues to grow every day. I'm thrilled whenever anyone gets excited about it. And I'm tired of being the only girl in the store into it. There's no respect for female gamers!

I am a playstation widow and it happened just this last week. I'm an enabler too. I got a 30 minute (uninterupted, mind you) back rub out of "letting" him hole up in the back room and play some clone trooper star wars shoot em and kill general grievous and stuff game all night. I'm not proud of it, but it was nice to have a night to just read a book and be self-involved....even if I did milk it for a backrub.
