Most of you know by now that I have a wee bit of an obsession with Guitar Hero, yes? Right. So how is this for a tease from hell; my new GH World Tour drum kit is broken!

Yeah, I finally put the drum kit together and the bizzach is broken! The stupid wire that connects one of the cymbals just snapped right after I put the thing in. I did nothing to it at all to anger it or cause it any harm. Quite the contrary, I was extra careful to make sure everything fits in right and assembled it with loving care--like Ralphie loading his BB gun (please tell me you've seen A Christmas Story. If you haven't shame on you)--Then I went to play and the right cymbal wasn't working. When Evan looked down at it, it was snapped and dangling. Grrr!

So now I have to hit an electronics store to see if I can pick up a replacement wire. They apparently exist. I saw a few people selling them on e-bay and Amazon. I suppose I'm not the only one who experienced issues with this, but that's not much of a consolation.

Luckily, the mic and the new nifty wireless guitar work, but my fingers are curling in on themselves after hours of playing and I shouldn't subject people to my singing for too long. That's just cruel. Blech.

Ugh that sucks! I hope you can find a replacement.
