    Alright, we took a long weekend, with nothing to report.  Now we are back.  Some tidbits for you to start the short week.

    • Metallica offering 11 free tracks from Death Magnetic on Guitar Hero III (as downloadable content), if you pre-order the CD at Best Buy.
      • EDITORIAL:  Incredible deal, especially if you are a Metallica fan, and a GH III fan.  For me, this sort of hurts.  I’m an old school Metallica fan, but I’m a fanboy of drums and vocals (i.e. Rock Band and potentially Guitar Hero World Tour).  I really wish they didn’t release this as GH III content.  I personally think it’s such a waste.  Here’s hoping it comes to RB as DLC.
    • Working towards AN-I-MAL!!! achievement.  I have not got any further on drums expert for Rock Band.  Still have Run to the Hills and Won’t Get Fooled Again.  I practiced Won’t Get Fooled a few times this weekend and am hoping to have one of the two tracks finished by the end of tonight.  I’ve got to get a move on, since I have 11 days to reach my goal.
    • New Rock Band DLC out today.  Straight from the geeks at PAX (that’s a compliment).  Three more cheap (80 MS Points / $1) and relatively unknown acts:
      • “Skullcrusher Mountain” by Jonathan Coulton (80)
      • “Livin’ on the Corner of Dude and Catastrophe” by MC Frontalot (80)
      • “Shhh…” by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets (80)
      • NOTE:  As I’m focused on getting the AN-I-MAL!!! achievement, I don’t plan on downloading anything right now.  So, if someone get’s these tracks or the Locksley tracks, please post a review of them.  I’d like to know how they are.
