My mom really likes that reality show Intervention, where families ambush their loved ones in order to get them into rehab for drug or alcohol addiction. Well, I believe that my family is about to stage their own intervention, but not in the conventional sense. Maggie, my 9 year-old has become unusually attached to the video game Guitar Hero. From the basement at her grandma's house all you can hear is the music to Slow Ride playing over and over again as she tries her best to master the three finger chords and strumming. It is quite amusing to watch actually as her facial expressions change and she rocks out lifting her guitar and shaking it back and forth. Then again, she can barely tear herself away from it to go to the bathroom and even to eat.

In order for you to get the full effect Jon has prepared the following video for your viewing pleasure. You decide: addiction or entertainment?
