I am at best indifferent to Aerosmith, but I'll probably end up getting this anyway because I'm so starved for new Guitar Hero songs.  I just wish it were like $20 cheaper.

I've always wanted to get two mirrors looking exactly at the other, and to peek in the center. I should see an infinite line of mirrors stretching into infinity, but my head always gets in the way. Maybe you'll be able to fulfill my lifelong dream!
