All right, it started out making sense. Gary and I loved to sing the Gar yoke, and the PC with the Garyoke crashed, and, for a while ... that was the day the music died.
I insisted we buy a karaoke program for the Wii, and we did, but Gary didn't like the music available on American Idol. We don't know Britney and Avril. And Gary didn't want to put in the effort to unlock Doris and Frank and Elvis. He researched our alternatives.
This is why we are two of the millions who bought Beatles Rock Band. We never had the original Rock Band. We don't have (and never intend to have)any plastic guitars or drums. I've played Rock Band, badly, but I've also played American Idol for the Wii surprisingly well. (Here's the trick: don't sing the words, just sing La-ah-ahhhh-ah-ah. Get that? La-ah-ahhhh-ah-ah. Practice a little. And set Simon to "Pussy.")
So, we have no plastic guitar, no drums. No keyboard or bass, assuming they have those. We have a little plastic mic for the Wii. And of course, neither of us can sing because of the evil Adenovirus that has laid waste to our household. So somehow, the marketing geniuses out there convinced Gary to buy something that is utterly useless to us.
