I recently bought Guitar Hero World Tour, which means that I've spent altogether too much time over the last few days flailing about with a toy guitar.

Picture our scene thus: our Guitar Heroine is playing the gig with the Lacuna Coil song Our Truth in it, and is perched on a small footstool in the middle of the room. And doing well, too - I've neither missed nor invented a note so far, and I'm about two-thirds of the way through the song.

And then my thigh starts to itch, posing a dilemma: full combo, or maddening itch? Thinking I could choose neither, I cuddled my toy guitar close and started playing Guitar Pretzel as I brought my other foot up to scratch.

Which worked just fine... until I tried to put my foot back on the floor, overbalanced, and fell over with a Most Undignified squeak.

So there I am, itch-free, horizontal on the carpet, still playing, and now discovering that I've fallen over in such a way that my toy guitar is now upright and has set off star power. I'm not sure this is a recommended way of doing it, but who am I to argue with bonus points for falling over? And better yet, while horizontally flailing and trying not to laugh at the absurdity of the situation, I still somehow managed to get the full combo.

So there we have it: falling over can, on occasion, make you awesome.



(Also, I has a Dollhouse icon. I suspect I may now be ejected from the Internets for actually liking it.

Plus, point of interest: Firefly, The X-Files, BSG, Burn Notice, Leverage, NCIS, Dollhouse - is there anything Mark Sheppard isn't in?!)

You missed The X Files. He was in the season one episode 'Fire'.

Also, I am giggling like a loon at your heroic exploits.

And so I did! *edits*

I was just about to say "X-Files"!

Also, I really liked last night's Dollhouse, so we'll have to be exiled together.

I may or may not have added it in, which just adds to my point.

Me too; and if it's a sign of things to come, I shall be well pleased with the series. I'm happy so long as we're exiled to somewhere that still has BitTorrent. :D

Things Mark Sheppard is not in:

Conan the Destroyer
Pride and Prejudice
Eastenders

I have also found that falling over can have many beneficial side effects, bizarrely in the 'making myself attractive to women' stakes. Because uncoordinated is sexy! Or something. =/

Falling over often makes genuine rock stars awesome, too, so you may be on to something there...

Quite possibly! And at least I didn't fall out of a tree upside-down.

You, madam, are a Guitar Hero hero.

Might I suggest taking up Heroin Hero?
