i have a copy of 7th style now.

i need to *not* *play* *it* *for* *four* *hour* *sessions* *at* *one* *time*, lest it eat away even more time that i don't have at the moment.

i'll probably play it a bunch tomorrow, but then i'm going to leave it alone until wednesday at least. there's too much i have to do on monday and tuesday.

the DDR tourney is six days from now. i'm not going to qualify well. and i haven't been working on my marvelous attack. i think my brain is already trying to think bigger picture, generally getting more consistent, trying to get more great counts down for not-so-hard-tunes and then gradually working the harder tunes.

it's silly, though. i mean, i'm never going to be good enough to be able to Really Compete. Not that that's the only reason i play - it's not even close to the biggest reason i play, but it can be frustrating to not be able to achieve what i want to achieve in the game just out of pure will power. I've always been a Mind Over Matter kind of guy which is what got me through a lot in late high school and drum corps, but i think the fact that i'm getting older is making it less possible for the Matter part to be ignored.

not that i'm going to stop playing DDR for a while or anything. i just might have to consider how much longer i'm going to compete in tourneys, how much longer i'm going to feel in touch with the DDR crowd. It'll be sad when i move out of Oregon, but i don't want to think about that right now because that raises a whole 'nother issue.

Meep. I knew I forgot to do something... Is it still possible to get a copy of 7th style if I didn't preorder?

I might stop in Eugene for the tourney on my way down to CA, actually. You should let me crash at your place and keep you off 7th style for an evening (so I can play!)

For some reason, last time i talked to tyler i had the impression that you were going to stay at his place.

as long as you don't mind being in a messy living space, i've got no issues... but i gotta double check with my roomie.

oh, no doubt there'll be 7th style playing to be had. it'll just depend on where.

and do you have a jps2 or a modded one?
