Most people agree that New Year's Eve is over-hyped. Much like Hallmark lives for Valentine's Day, bars, clubs, hotels, and DJs around the world live for NYE. When else can you charge a $50 cover and justify it by handing out 3oz of free "champagne"?
Don't get me wrong though -- my last two NYE celebrations were a ton of fun. My friends and I elected to go the all-inclusive route and dropped the big bucks to eat, drink, dance, and be merry till the wee hours of the morning.
So this year, the combination of fighting a cold and having no plans pretty much suffocated any dreams for a repeat blowout NYE celebration. That is, until I got a hold of Guitar Hero II.
In a very modern-day-American fashion, I literally ROCKED in the new year to none other than Rage Against the Machine's Killing in the Name. Ahhh yeah.
