Dropping out of high school to become a professional “Guitar Hero?” I’m speechless, absolutely speechless. It’s one thing when someone drops out of school to pursue a professional sporting career, to start up the next Napster, or even to play Madden, but this is just taking things too far. Guitar Hero is not on the same level of respectability of professional gaming as first-person shooters, Starcraft, or Madden. The absolute maximum people make doing this shit is $80,000 a year..and that’s probably not including the logistics of traveling to competitions and finding a place to stay.
In other endearing news: Greece is becoming the new East Germany as 15 Greek Olympic hopefuls thus far have been busted for doping. Does anyone else find it ironic that the same country that invented these fucking games is now resorting to CHEATING in order to win them? What ever happened to Greeks being the ‘natural athletes?’
