seven degrees of separation

it all started with hopping back and forth between wikipedia and youtube. i was looking for new stepchart material and decided to start by finding other videos of one artist i already did.

related videos led to finding some stuff that was okay but not great, but that led to being curious and thus looking up a wiki entry. That led to finding other artists on youtube which led to another wiki entry about a record label that led to about five artists whose works i perused. and found some good stuff.

But then i hit the fucking jackpot. after seeing two videos on youtube of a particular artist, i decided i wanted to stepchart both of the songs, so i went to find the discography to grab good versions of those songs rather than youtube audio captures, and oh my god. the albums are absolutely fantastic.

and now i have to figure out which tracks i truly want to stepchart because i could probably easily chart like... ALL OF THEM.

and no, i'm not telling you who it is because i'm just That Sort of Bastard.

DARN, I thought that since you capitalized That Sort of Bastard that you might be hinting at the name of the group... but searching has returned nothing :(

in dance dance revolution, i call the steps that you have to hit for a song a 'step chart'. there's a verison of DDR for home computer called stepmania that allows you to use any MP3 (not just DDR songs) to create steps to.

ddr is one of those things where you have to realize that anyone who plays it regardless of skill level looks absolutely ridiculous. if you come to terms with that, self-consciousness about playing completely goes away.

hehe.

for me, playing DDR isn't so much about dancing. DDR isn't dancing.

it's almost like drum corps tenor drumming for the feet, especially since if you're going to play competiviely you need to have precision that's comparable to drum corps accuracy.

dancing is fun too, though. haven't done that in a loooong time. and i'm not any good at it either.
