Britney is going to star in a video game. Which is cool and all, but the press release goes on to mention that she’ll be joining “the ranks of Michael Jackson, the Spice Girls, Kiss and Aerosmith, each of whom have featured in computer games”. Can anyone name any of the games these people were “featured” in? I thought not.

  1. What about Journey? It was even available for the Atari 2600!

  2. The hair band!? You gotta be kidding me. I wonder if I can find a ROM for it.

    I think musicians should stick to music. They just don’t “synergize” that well, you know? They’ve sucked in videogames… they’ve sucked in movies… they’ve sucked in literature (hello Britney)… they’ve sucked in television specials. I even tried out Aerosmith’s “Rock N Rollercoaster” at Disney MGM Studios last year, which – as an experience – pretty much mimics what I imagine playing the Aerosmith videogame to be like. The band’s pre-recorded likenesses weren’t very good, the “plot” was idiotic, their presence was totally unnecessary, and the soundtrack was ill-suited for the action. And at the end I felt like hurling.

  3. What an endorsement! (I didn’t end up riding the Aerosmith ride, mostly ’cause I was with someone who didn’t want to go on and I didn’t want to wait for an hour by myself.)

    I think the Journey game had something to do with the spaceships that were on their lp covers. Maybe?

    I agree about musicians, but I still have amazingly fond memories of the Kiss movie where the guys have super-powers. Did it involve a haunted amusement park?

  4. Are you sure that wasn’t an episode of Scooby Doo? 🙂

  5. Wow, glad to be of service. But how the hell did you find that entry in my archives?

    I like the idea of the Tungsten shirt, btw.

  6. Just started surfing back a few weeks and the actual post (which was about REM and U2) caught my eye. And I’m a big Pat Benatar fan. I’m with you all the way there.
