Has the Internet killed the thrill of the hunt?
Is there anything you can't find on the Internet these days? From clothes, books, dvds, dates - pretty much anything you're looking for - if you can't find it in a conventional way, all you have to do is turn on the old Internet and whatever it is you're looking for is only a click away.
Whatever happened to the thrill of the chase? The joy of finding something you've been looking for for ages.
Take Rock Band for example. If you don't know what that is - I guess it can be descibed as karaoke on speed. Guitar, bass, drums and vocals. As close to a band as us musically challenged will ever get. It was a hot item for the holidays this year and I've been checking for it for the last couple weeks and always managed to be at a store about an hour after they sold their last copy. Finally yesterday we were ahead of the game. We got a tip that Superstore had received a big shipment so a bunch of us skipped out on our morning meetings and got there just in time.
Now that's satisfaction. Take that Internet!
By the way, I'm now recruiting a singer for my band if anyone is interested...
