Viacom would like you to know that Beatles: Rock Band exceeding their expectations.Viacom would like you to know that Beatles: Rock Band exceeding their expectations.

What's actually a surprise from an IndustryGamers report on the matter is that even in our crummy economy, it's the $250 version of the game -- bundled with all the instruments -- that's performing so well that Dauman says he expects a sellout by November.

I'm itching to try this game out, the visuals look fantastic. Apparently my Guitar Hero World Tour controller will work just fine for this game (which is nice).

Beatles: Rock Band to get more DLC content sometime after official release.Beatles: Rock Band to get more DLC content sometime after official release.

Basically, the DLC content will fill in holes to make complete albums of the included songs. You can still play Octopus's Garden as much as you like.

A little strange given the fact that the White House already has an active Twitter account.

So far it looks like the service can't be used with Disney and Starz movies. You'll have to MST3K these movies in person.

This can't possibly be for real, but then again it is PETA after all so who knows.

God Street Wine and the Post of Terminal Fandom.

While aimlessly surfing the web this evening I came across this fantastic writeup about my favorite band, God Street Wine. Anyone who knows me outside of a nutshell knows that this is my favorite band. The irony, at least from what I can tell, is that its nobody else's favorite band outside of maybe one or two people (and the rest of the Winos). I was shocked tat one day I actually had to convince a fellow co-worker (and fellow jamband fan) that God Street Wine was not in fact, a Christian rock band (read that again, Inverso). That aside, I probably saw this band over fifty times throughout their career and loved each and every show. The music of the band struck a big chord with me and it still does years after the band stopped playing. So basically I'd like to share this article with all of you along with some YouTube vids that are making me even more nostalgic. Enjoy and happy GSWing.

God Street Wine on Conan O'Brien - tight performance of 'RU4 Real'

Live at The Wetlands - look closely I'm somewhere in that sea of people.

Borderline from 3/1/1998 - no idea where

Live at the Wetlands - The Ballroom
