More DDR pics and a video for youse

For once, I had one of those magical "no school, no work" days today, so I made the most of it and headed to Golf 'n' Stuff to take part in some DDR stuff. Better yet, I brought my video camera.

So here's some stuff for you, in case your interested:

  • I cemented Naoki Standard! Not only that, but I actually Full Comboed D2R - the one song that never failed to get my goat. Even better, I did it despite my right shoe coming untied just before the last song.

  • Another pic of Naoki being finished, this one with my head in the shot as proof that yes, I was the one who passed it.

  • The Naoki Standard high score board - I was astonished to find out that I'd actually made the high scores, since the machine is pretty much "0wned" by two or three people. Since I figured Gyl would promptly remove my name next time he came, I figured I'd better get it on tape.

Also, as if I don't already have enough troubles with bandwidth, here's a video clip of me attempting to pass MaxX Unlimited, arguably the hardest song on MAX2. Do I pass it? Well, you'll have to watch the video to find out. WARNING: It's 11.3 MB, so it'll take some time to load.

Pat Connolly, 1936 - 2002

My uncle Pat Connolly died last night. He had slipped into a coma after having a stroke on Monday. Last year, he had been diagnosed with terminal cancer in his lungs, which later metastisized into his brain in September.

I didn't have much opportunity to get to know my uncle - the last time I saw him was when my sister got married in 1997 - but he was always a very kind man and very comforting to be around. As you can see, I am turning my front page black in mourning.

I'm gonna miss you, Uncle Pat.

Either I beat another Oni course or this is evidence of Bigfoot

Here's another DDR accomplishment I recently pulled off:

In case you can't read what the screen is saying, I've beaten my second Oni course - Naoki Standard - on the DDR MAX2 machine at CSUN. Watch out, GKSE - I'm coming after you.

And believe it or not, that was my best photo of the accomplishment. I hate APS.

Among the other things I've done in recent history: I currently own the entire Nearly 130 board at CSUN with scores ranging from 96.8% to 94.8%, I've gotten as far as 9:01 on a third Oni course (Pop 8), and I've pulled off my first full Perfect, with Young Forever. Boy, I wish I had a camera for that one.

Finally, there is only one song left on MAX2 that I have yet to pass on Heavy mode. It's Maxx Unlimited, though, so don't expect this to change, well, ever.

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me...

On this day at 12:15 PM, Timothy Daniel Connolly was born. And the world was changed forever.

A pretty easy-going birthday today: I was off from work today, so I basically slept in and played on the computer for a while. I did get a gift certificate for a new bowling ball, though, and we're having pancakes, bacon and eggs for dinner.

We have a winner!

Congratulations to Tyler Trykowski, winner of the Loogslair.com writing contest. The final results, as well as the submitted stories, are available for reading by clicking on the link.
