i think this guy has been playing DDR every day for the past week and a half.

not short sessions either.

i sincerely hope that he has a friend like i do that lets me play on a machine for free. or at least has a JP machine. otherwise he's spending an awful lot of money.

long day today... got music to work on for an hour and a half, and then a lunch meeting with mark at noon, rehearsal from 14:00-17:00, section leader meeting from 17:30-18:15, band parent meeting from 18:30-19:30, then probably come back here and collapse for a little while before working on more music.

tomorrow might be a didder day. I feel like i haven't played in forever. it'll be even worse when band camp starts. 8:00-20:00 days for a week means that i'll probably have to take the longest hiatus from DDR in a couple of months. i might have to go to Putters or something to make sure i keep at it, because if i don't, the first session i have after that week is going to *suck*.

me too...
I wish someone other than a greedy mall arcade owned a DDR machine here in Spokane. cheapest machine here is $.75 per side. the Tilt at the valley mall recently offered us the "reasonable" price of $100 to use their machine on a sunday night for 4 hours for a tournament, even after I politely explained to them that it's their worst hours of the week (other than tuesday morning at 10), and that if we used it as a coin drop tournament they might cap at $30 depending on turnout (biggest Spokane turnout for a month-advertised tournament has been 13 people). and they had previously stated that we could use the machine for $.50 per side for the tournament then changed their mind. so the machine made $1.50 that night instead of $30. *applause*

and yes, long sessions in spokane are exceptionally expensive. I looked into buying my own machine and putting it into my garage, but the cheapest one I could find was $5800 plus $800 shipping. not useful. Maybe I just need to know where to look.

Re: me too...
DDR Machines these days go for about that price. When Tyler bought his, normal price was more abouts $3500-$4000, but the market on them went up for some reason.

i put some consideration into buying my own machine, but i don't think i need to at the moment, nor can i afford one. maybe at some point when i have more regular income and can maybe find a place that will sell one to me cheap.
