I'm a big fan of, The Stephen Colbert Report, and just the different segments, interviews and more that Stephen does, but there's one segment on that show that has always been my favourite... The Word, it's basically a segment where Stephen talks about different world issues, from a conservative standpoint most of the times, and just gives his "honest" opinion on it.

So during some free time I had around Christmas last year, I decided to do something similar, and dubbed it "The E Report"® Anyways, The E Report is essentially my thoughts, opinions on a wide variety of issues ranging from current events, certain news articles and sometimes gaming, it varies from episode to episode.

So after showcasing this on AR, I'm bringing it over to AB to show you what its like. Think of it like an episode of radio commentary on an issue, filled with jokes, sarcasm, and whatever devices I use to get my point across.

Keep in mind though that these Reports, are done mostly on the fly. They were also done at different times of the year so some of what I may say may be outdated or something else that is odd, so keep that in mind. Usually done in one or two takes or more. That's right, I hardly ever plan how it's going to turn out, but I speak as the thoughts come to me, so there will be the occasional hiccup, but in most cases it turns out pretty well.

So I present to you a collection of some of the reports I have posted thus far, with my lastest one, The E Report Episode 35 for your listening pleasure, any thoughts, comments, or whatever comes to mind about any episode feel free to post away and I will address them if need be.

Just in to regards to episode 35, isn't Simon Says the originator of hitting buttons in a rhythm?

Yeah I believe it would be one of the originators of the concept. Basically what I was trying to get at in episode 35 was that guitar hero was one of the first video games that used an actual musical instrument in a rhythm based type of game, complete with licensed songs and whatnot.

I am the elitist and I would encourage you to watch the latest episode of south park to see the absurdity of the game.

If you can find me an episode of that show, that has not been taken down from youtube, I'll take a look. Heard that episode was quite good.

I say let the people who play GH have their fun, some people I know are pretty good and established guitar players and they enjoy playing a round of GH, even though its hard for them to play at first. :P But least it does one thing, and that is bring notice back to the guitar and maybe encourage some people after playing GH, to learn to play a guitar. Not everyone will do so, but heck least they can pretend to rock out, rather than spend a fair amount of money to buy one and then giving up later on, because it was too hard.

Here you can buy the cheapest guitar for around 40$, that's probably less than guitar hero will cost you. And anyone can learn the basic chords real quick, probably not much more then you need to pick up the basics of that game at least.

P.S. I've sent you a PM with a link for the episode.
