Rocking Out: Plastic Guitar Style

When I created my Amazon Wishlist a few weeks back ready for my birthday, I, like any opportunistic cad, added a bunch of different items on there, some of which I never expected a hope in hell to receive.

Well, today I had a coffee catch-up planned with my pal and Firefox / Python-testing super-hero Mikeal Rogers and he presented me with this accessory to rock-and-roll bliss:


Guitar Dork: World Tour.

That’s right metal-fans, it is a full-size authorized replica of a BC Rich Warlock made for Guitar Hero (and Rock Band, and I assume Frets On Fire). It also make me feel that little closer to living out my dreams as Max Cavalera from Sepultura during their 80’s heyday:


Spot the bonus mullet in the photo here.

This is actually perfect timing as I am planning a Guitar Hero competition at the next Ubuntu Developer Summit.

Thankyou so, so, much Mikeal!

    BUT GUITAR HERO IS NONFREE!!¡ STOP HAVING FUN NOW.

  • ethana2

    To extinguish nonFree software, you must first embrace and extend it.

    Jono!,

    Please turn away from the fake-plastic-guitar Darkness. Try something less de-masculinizing, like being a Furrie.

    love, bgryderclock

    A few weeks earlier I decided to stop by VMWorld in San Francisco and ended up spending about an hour playing Guitar Hero with a booth babe.

    Rock Band’s better :)

    Now that is bad ass, I just might have to get a console and some guitar hero/rock band.

    Subtle. Very subtle. :-)

    OMG a BC Rich guitar. I hope you have a real guitar at home. By real I mean not a BC Rich but a Fender or a Gibson ;)

    Rock’n roll !

  • But…

    I wish I had friends who gave me presents. And had money to burn.

    @Benoit Caccinolo… I detest that comment! :P

    I had a BC Rich for 12 years, a cheapo Warlock and I loved it to bits (after spraying it chrome)

    Times change and I love my PRS SE Custom and Omen 7 Gee-tars now.

    @Benoit, @Jono: What real guitars do you have?? :)

    I could post a picture of me in my underwear playing Rock Band drums now, but I think that would look far less badass =)

    (I don’t know how those indie drummers who wear suits manage without dying of heatstroke. they must have really world-class anti-perspirants, too. Where do you go to buy Speed Stick Drummer?)

  • jono

    Real guitars:

    • Jackson Randy Rhoads
    • 2 x Jackson Kelly’s
