Best Buy for the Holidays

I decided to stop in at Best Buy to pick up the new Halo. If you haven’t gotten your hands on this game then you are missing out. This game is exclusive to the Xbox gaming consoles. PlayStation doesn’t offer it. So if you have an Xbox, you should definitely check this out. The story line is where we again have to save the planet from total destruction as our beloved Master Chief, but it is no longer us against the Covenant anymore. We now face a bigger more impressive threat, and that is the Prometheans. A race of what is thought to be an alien life force that has come back to reclaim what is rightfully theirs.





While I was there, I also checked out Call of Duty:  Black Ops 2. Activision has upped the ante with the newest installment to their army based game by giving you a future outlook on warfare. This game is available on all gaming consoles. The game will have you wowed from the start as you embark on a journey through time playing as Alex Mason and then to a futuristic world that will have you blown away! I won’t ruin the story for you, but you are going to enjoy it. I am lucky enough to have a wife who loves video games just as much as I do, and she says it’s SO real. She says that while watching the campaign, it feels like she’s watching a movie (I agree).

So, for the Gamers in your life, make your way to Best Buy this holiday season, and get your boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband/nephew/niece, and any family member or friend this great new installment of an already great game. Just know this is not just for boys, this is for all genders. I’m sure someone in your family has already talked about it with you, so help them out this holiday season and make their dreams come true.

I Started out in 1976 trying out to sing in bands but no bands were interested in me. In 1977 I started playing guitar. The individual that was teaching me (who for now will remain anonymous) told me that I would NEVER learn how to play guitar because I had no sense of rhythm. I joined my first band in 1978 called "Dead Center" in Jacksonville, Florida. I played an Aspen guitar, black; a Les Paul copy and in 1981. I gave that guitar to the teacher who said I'd never learn to play. I wrote my first song in 1979 or '80. Over the years I have been in many bands but my passion has been songwriting. I have written well over 100 songs and though the early ones were kind of rough around the edges, I think that most of them could be dusted off and given a new facelift. Today I am still working on my songs. Currently I can play guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, harmonica, and Native American flute. The flutes that I play are ones that I made myself. My guitars are the Epiphone G-400 faded, an Ibanez RG370 DX, an Epiphone G 1275 double neck guitar. My acoustic guitars are an Alvarez 12 string and an old Kay guitar. My drum set is a Peace drum set. I do my recording on a Zoom HD16.
