|Also....other things in my life
I started playing WoW again. Wyrmwrst Accord. :)
I saw Mendal in a BBC DDR Documentary about K-Dogg the other day.
That was probably the highlight of the documenatry.
Going to see Ben Folds on friday in portland.
I got Keyboardmania and Beatmania DADADA.
I love Street Fighter Thursdays over at Scott's, most likely the highlight of my week. :)
Empress is overall dissapointing.... but still has a few gems in it.
Me and the girlfriend are still going strong. Been about 2 years now. :)
I got a new puppy. A black Chihuahua named Max.
It's my 26th birthday in 3 days. :)
|Checking one off the list.
Listed on my "things to do before you die" book, is to see my favorite Trance/Electronica artist live. ATB rarely comes through America.. but right now he is having his new album/2009 world tour, which sends him through 4 cities in america next month.
One of those cities is LA... where they are having the "Electric Daisy Carnival"... and huge weekend spectaclar with top DJs and general fun all around.
Tickets are spendy(55$ a day)... VIP tickets with added extras.. even spendier(125-150$ a day). Travel, lodging, food, gas will... be spendy.
Buuuut.. I'm gonna do it.
LA here I come. :) Current Mood: happy

|Keep Breakin' Barriers to Make the Beat Heavier!
Just a little (smile) IIDX update.
I seem to be forcing my way into 9s on hyper more and more these days... I thought I'd hit the wall pretty much when it came to 9s... but today I passed both D.C. Fish and Moon so I think from here on out.. I'm gonna start paying more attention to 9s. I also passed Snowstorm finally on a controller that dosen't belong to Scott. lol
10s though.... p"ffff"t... yeah right.

|OMG it's almost 5 in the morning....
and... Nekomata Master's new album "Rain Drops" is the best thing in my world right now.
I've loved every single song of his ever made so far. That's amazing.
Less then fucking three. Current Mood: indescribable

|I are teh winnar.
Game Crazy just called me and told me that I won the DDR tournament they were having at the Eugene Asian Celebration over the weekend. :D I only went the first day and played a couple times.. i didn't expect to win cause it was the 360 version of DDR with a crappy soft pad. O_O
But no! I won a 100$ gift card to the store. Time to pick up Street Fighter 4 tomorrow I guess. :D
|Thursday, February 12th, 2009|
I find it REALLY sad that 4 styles after RED and hundreds of songs of practice later....
I STILL can't come close to passing Gigadelic Light7.
I'll never pass that shit at the end. >.

|Before I forget...
I got a PS3 last weekend!
Currently I only know 2 people of have A PS3... and I've added them both as friends on PSN.
So... if you have a PS3... add me! My login name is xKDashx and I don't have many games to play multiplayer yet... but that'll change in a few weeks time. :)

Decided to pop in Happy Sky for today's IIDX session. Took me quite a while to get the timing down.. and I don't know why. >.< Happy Sky really seems different then any other style for ps2. Hm. Anyway.. after practicing for a while.. here is the progress I made:
Love Magic (H): BARELY passed this at the end of the session today. Highly doubt that I'm consistent on it. Buy hey, a pass is a pass.
Scripted Connection N-Mix (H): Didn't seem to have much trouble with this one this time. I used to flail on the keys and totally screw up the whole end of this song before.
Eden (H): I went into this one pretty worried. Kinda fast for me.. but somehow I came up with it.
Inazuma (H): haha.. Was REALLY worried about this one. Felt really good about passing it.
That song by Riyu from BeForU ????? (H): Meh. Wasn't too bad.
and then my crowning achievements of the day (along with Love Magic):
One More Lovely (H): I KNEW I could do this one.. it was the VERY end of the song that always got me... and I just went into it knowing and remembering that final part.. and I nailed it.
Votum Stallarem (H): Passed it first time trying. That felt really good passing it.
Trouble songs (shit I STILL after all this time cannot pass)
Green Eyes (H): SCREW that ending.
Poodle (H): The last 3 seconds of the song, I always fail instantly.
Tant Pis Pour Toi: I never play this one.. so I'm never used to how it sounds.
Still haven't passed a 10 yet. I came VERY VERY close to passing Abyss -Heaven's- today. That's one I need to work on a little more.
Haha.. sorry to bug everyone with my IIDX musings on here.. but that's pretty much what I made the LJ for. :P So I can track my progress as I play this silly game. :)

|IIDX Milestones (GET IT?!!?)
After deciding to TAKE IT EASY from IIDX for about a week... I've returned to destroying my arm with this crazy game (s'been really sore lately). YESTERDAY while playing I managed to pass Quasar for the first time. :D
Today I had a friend over to play... and he decided to throw in 8th Style... so I started messing around with the flashing 7s on there.. and somehow came up with passing Colors(Eurobeat). :D
I'm so close to Symbolic I can taste it, too. Right now it's just 2hot2eat. (Come on.. how else do I work that pun in there?)
Anyway. Life is good. Going to the Country Fair this weekend. Anyone else going? I've never been before.

|The 10 Wall.
I offically passed my 12th 9 in IIDX today, Andromeda II on Gold.
Every time I try a 10 though... it utterly destroys me (except for Welcome).
How in the hell are 10s passable?
Right now getting anywhere past 9s looks pretty bleak.
Fuck my arm hurts. lol
I have like... 3 more 8s to pass on Gold... all of them being messed up 5 key revivals.
Anyway. Empress is pretty funny. Looks good though, girlyness aside. I tend to enjoy the more lighter, upbeat IIDX versions. Gold is already by far my favorite CS version, with 10th coming in second just because it has SO many Mr.T songs.
I'm gonna pack up the TV and the IIDX setup and head down to Medford over the weekend. I'm manning the IIDX booth at the arcade day that's happening on Saturday. Should be pretty fun. It'll be good to see the Medford crowd. :)
I get my car out of the shop today. (hopefully!) Life is pretty good.

I got a 78% on Ghost Revival Hyper after staying above 80% for over half the song. >.<
*throws controller across room*
*walks over, picks up controller and tries again*
I passed Boundary Hyper today and improved a lot of my previous scores.. so it's been an allright day for IIDX.
*EDIT* HOLY FUCK I passed Xenon and Zero-One Hyper! Current Mood: busy
|Saturday, June 21st, 2008|
I LOVE eugene community access television. I flipped it on during dinner today and they had local lip-sync bands preforming. HILLARIOUS stuff. It always seems like they have funny stuff going on on that channel. ..... anyways....
Didn't really have anything planned for an actual LJ entry. >.< Channel 29 was just so funny I thought it deserved an entry. haha. Hope everyone is doing well. :D Current Mood: amused

|IIDX hates me.
WHY is this game so difficult!!?? I've been playing for the better part of today... and I've still made no progress when it comes to 9s. I'm still hung up on a couple 8s (20,November I HATE HATE HATE you) but I've passed MOST of them so I feel like I'm ready to move onto 9s.
But 9s continue to destroy me.
I tried playing some 10s to make the 9s seem easier once I came back around to them.... and I couldn't come CLOSE to passing a 10 (except for Welcome Hyper) and the 9s didn't seem any easier after playing 10s for a while.
My form is okay while playing other then I'm still trying to get the pinky scratch down.
I hope I just wake up one of these days and see SOME obvious progress being made.
Maybe I'll switch to a different style tomorrow... maybe 10th or something.
Also.. I was thinking, could you imagine IIDX in reverse? Where the notes flow upward? They should implement that in a later style for the extra stage or something. Really throw people off.
EDIT: Passed Linus Hyper. Fuck yeah. I'm going to sleep. :P Current Mood: intimidated

|IIDX Fun Time
Passed 4 new 9s on Another during my IIDX session today!
Ahhhh feels so good. Also.. it is weird that I can pass 9s on another... but not on Hyper?
Also.. I got all cocky and tried a couple 10s.... yeah.. that's not happening. Current Mood: accomplished
