oh surprise it's a rock band post

I manually calibrated Rock Band tonight. That is, I watched das blinkenlights and strummed when I thought I should, and the system went "brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp okay you are calibrated" and what do you know, the Strat doesn't feel mushy anymore. I'm hitting all the notes I should be.


But now I wonder if it'll feel kinda weird when I go over to someone else's place to play. Maybe they've already calibrated it to their liking, maybe not. (My sweet spot, by the way, is -48 ms. That's what the computer thingy says at least. I even did a spot check and played with my eyes closed; yes Virginia we do have a sense of rhythm and we stick to it.) Maybe they haven't, and have just gotten used to hitting the strum thingo 48 milliseconds after I usually do. Maybe their TV and/or monitor doesn't have the same delay that mine does. And I'd feel like an absolute sno[b|t] if I showed up at any other place and said "Mind if I calibrate your system?" (I'm sure there's a term for That Guy.) But on the other hand, maybe it just doesn't really matter.

That said, a lot of the songs on Hard have become a lot more fun to play because I'm not constantly overworrying about whether or not I'll hit the damn thing. I absolutely adore Queen Bitch and Reptilia and even Celebrity Skin, which I wasn't too crazy about the first time it came 'round.
