double statistics and a survey

great count: 5,753. improved by 428 DP in two recent sessions. The big thing i achieved was AAing the last non-10 footers. Break Down! wasn't too hard once i figured out how to contort my body for two of the hard runs. Ska a Go Go was a fluke, and as far as i'm concerned will always be a fluke. I got 29g, i'm happy. i never want to play it again.

The other thing i did was whore HVAM some and eventually got that score down to 25g.

76 SDGs on double, which now matches my SDGs on single. And now i'm only 800 greats behind Jason. About one month ago, i was at about... oh.... 8,200 greats? Funny that i still think i suck.

i was planning on getting my great count on double lower than single, and if i didn't play any single, ti would have happened. But i did end up playing a bunch of single when i was getting drained from playing so much double, so i improved on a bunch of my single scores. ah well.

the biggest thing i did was play The Legend of Max on single three times in a row and i improved each time. I still suck at it, but i did manage to convert it to an A, increasing my DP by about 150.. PSMO is now my only B.



Yet again, jenni has done a survey that i like, so i'm going to fill it out before taking a shower and starting my day for real.

noob question
how do you put links into your journal? when I look at my friends page I only see two links. when I look at your actual entry, there are no links, but lots of text. ???

BTW, Break Down is one of my favorites, though I haven't played it in a while. without the bar, there are no real contortions, but it is quite a workout.

Tried PSMO today lol. never seen the stepchart before and got reamed about 20 seconds in. :P

Re: noob question
look in the FAQ for "lj-cut".

I think Break Down is kind of fun now that i understand what's going on. It's just damned difficult.

PSMO is one of those charts that you just need to have "click" in my opinion. study it, give it some time, you'll figure it out.

If I played more doubles, I think I would have finished a few more challenges. I will try to play more and make that gap bigger again :-P

*laughs* you should. it seems like it's been forever since you've played any double... you should get back in the swing.
