Beatles Rock Band

I've decided to crash a Beatles Rock Band party tonight. I'm more of an Elvis man myself, but I'm willing to play a music-oriented video-game when there's food involved. However, there are a few complaints about the game that I'd like to air:

1. Too many buttons, not enough strings. I think players should be required to learn their instruments. If you're pressing buttons, you may as well play an autoharp. At least the autoharp has strings.

2. "Twist and Shout" and "Boys" are not Beatles compositions. However, they're on Beatles Rock Band, whereas "Tomorrow Never Knows" and "Revolution No. 9" are not.

3. No Rutles.

Gorilla Grumbles

I keep getting emails in my inbox about the so-called "best" photos of National Geographic. They're not that great. There's not a gorilla in the bunch. It's been a long time since we've gotten a cover like this one.

While I'm grumbling, I should mention that I still can't seem to get a proper endorsement for Seattle mayor. I also can't seem to get proper health insurance, but almost everyone is in the same boat around here. Forget dental insurance. You should see my teeth! On the other hand, you probably shouldn't.
