Double-A! [Dec. 1st, 2005|12:15 am]
While Greg and Jerry were off at kung-fu this evening, I played DDR, because I need to get more exercise.

And after a good hour of increased heartrate, a moment of personal triumph:

This is a song on DDR Max 2 (also known as the "sonic death scream" song, because it starts out with that la-la-la-la-la aaAAAAaa-aa-aa high-pitched wail from that "lovin' you is easy 'cuz you're beautiful" song before it transforms into this lovely little instrumental techno piece) that I have done over and over and over, trying to do it without missing the combo. (That is, hitting every step at "great" or better, so as not to break the combo.) It's a difficulty 6. It has triplets. And tricky step patterns.

And I got it tonight. ON THE FIRST TRY! Woooo!

And I have to give credit to one of my sweeties (kung_fu_monkey), because it's his fault we have DDR. One of the things I really love about him is that he exposes me to new things I would never have encountered otherwise.

It's not "A A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules From The Center Of The Ultraworld (Loving You)", by the Orb, right?

*pauses, fires up iTunes* No, probably not. Not really danceable...

You SUCK! I mean, it rocks that you were able to accomplish what you did (and boy, I keep meaning to buy some flavor of DDR), but I don't know the techno song, and that $%^&* cheese-ball song is STUCK IN MY HEAD!

Pain! Agony!

D'oh! It really has nothing in common with the original song but that one vocal sample at the beginning. Sorry to inflict in on you!

OK, now I have to get my DDR legs back and then show up in Colorado to play with you and your boys. You can blame Andrew for hooking me on it a couple of years ago, but I've not played since I started biking. THough now, with winder training (indoors for the most part) looming, DDR gains in temptation....
