Do you want to know how to make yourself feel old?

Fire up Rock Band 2 on your PS3, hit the network for an On-line Tour and find yourself some bandmates. Last night, my band found itself performing with a singer in Massachusetts and a bass player in Washington.

After a while, we enquired about one another’s age; and so it was revealed that the singer of my band was just 11 years old, and the bass player an impressive 15.

At 3 in the morning, you suddenly feel quite old when you realise you’re playing a plastic guitar in a virtual band with a singer whose voice hasn’t even broken yet. That kid’s barely a quarter of my age and only seven years older than Eloïse.

At the same time, this illustrates how unbelievably cool, powerful and social the Internet is.

    Yes. Clearly you need to add a PS3 to your collection. 🙂

    Great news on the trip to Australia. I’m envious. Which city/cities?

    And how much longer do you expect to be contracting for this company?
