No Jeff! 
Edit: I was almost the first comment... only to be beat by Jeff... I feel cheated, yet honored.

John Drake-ob Jingle Himerschmidt? 
 
Great interview. I like how he threw down the gauntlet to (at?) Ryan.
 
Also, shut-ins don't vote. So you'll have to campaign harder to earn my one vote you won't be getting.

I love it when Giant Bomb hangs out with people they fairly know well. Only because the interview and such are more loose, so everybody can dick around a little.

Nice careful wording in the title there. Not an interview, but a conversation.

Oh my god, AMAZING interview. Also, I had that exact same Bohemian Rhapsody moment yesterday with a buddy at the Outback. Was in the middle of a conversation, and boom, everything had to stop. That song is dangerous.

What did I take away from this video? Colourful glowing outlines around people look awesome.
Also, I will be disappointed if they don't go through with this dancing throw down at PAX.

I like that guy.  I'm quite a Guitar Hero fan (apologist, even), but I have loads of respect for Harmonix and Rock Band 3.  I'm totally *that guy* who actually buys (and enjoys) all those Guitar Hero games that aren't necessary.  I need to be refreshed by Harmonix and reminded of how much devotion can be put into a game like this.

Drake is a menace.

The PAX dance-off is gonna be like the Chris Farley vs Patrick Swayze SNL skit.  My money's on Drake.

If you mix the ideas of the Quick Look Road Trip with Video Thing you pretty much get this hilarious video.
