when thinking about revising or adding to my step chart resume, i decided it would be a good idea to try to write a chart in the style of ITG as opposed to DDR.

talk about a *complete* shift in mentality. The chart i finished today is unlike anything i've written before.

in general i'm starting to categorize my feet step charts into four rough categories: early experimental, DDR imitative, ITG imitative, and "other" (or perhaps more "signature" or "original"). Obviously these categories aren't clear cut - some of my sight-read charts, for example, blur between what i would call DDR imitiative and "signature".

but it's good to have those categories in place so i can think about my "audience" per se, not unlike why i would compose this chord or that melody line for a marching band arrangement over a chamber work over an orhcestral work over a commission for this group or that group. So long as i know that the categorical lines aren't ink, they can serve a good purpose.

daylight savings time is dumb. i just woke up from a nap (i've been sleeping most of the day, still vaguely trying to recover from this cold/flu thing i've got), and it was dark enough outside that i thought it must have been 20:00 or maybe 21:00, not 18:00.

I was playing ITG down here and were talking about step file and the guys knew your step file and when I said I knew you they were like "hey this guy knows darknote"

yeah... i actually do know that, but i avoid thinking about it. i don't really want to be famous. i just want to be me.

what i really need to do is get more of an anti-mendel fan club so it can balance out against the people that like me. maybe i should start acting like an asshole.

haha whatever man. the way i see it, there is "darknote" and "mendel." Those who choose to know "darknote" are missing out on a totally cool dude. No need to act a different way.

My categories consist of "bullshit" and "not bullshit".
