*yawns tiredly*

I saw Anger Management last night... and I can't quite decide if I liked it or not.  (Ebert & Roeper sure didn't!)  It was funny, but the word that comes to mind when I think of it is... well, weird.  I guess that's nothing new for an Adam Sandler production, though.  *grin*  The previews really got me psyched, though... especially the one for The Matrix: Reloaded.  I can't wait to see that.  The sequel to the Charlie's Angels movie looks like it will kick all ass, too... and they're releasing it on my birthday, June 27th.  Woo hoo!  For the DDR people reading this, I passed a new Oni course on Friday while I was messing around at my part time arcade job.  I can finally say I've survived Naoki Neo-Standard!

I practically yelled with excitement when I finally passed that damn Memories song during the course... it always kicked my butt 'til then.  It felt good putting my initials up for that one.  As I regularly AA the Momo Mix of Burnin' the Floor (the final song on the course) on Heavy, I had nothing to worry about after passing Memories.  I would've beaten the course at the Metreon yesterday as well, but my damn left shoe is coming apart... and it tripped me up.  I can't wait to get paid tomorrow... I'm SO buying a new pair of Squall-esque boots.  Anyhow, back to DDR.  I can't believe I suck so much at Sakura on Heavy mode (as that song on Oni difficulty is "only" a 9 footer)... it has to be a ton easier than MAX 300, and I pass that pretty much whenever I want.  I need to start playing that damn song more.  I've also been having lots of fun with Edit Data... we loaded some really cracked out edits onto the 5th Mix and Extreme machines at the arcade.  :)

Since everyone's been calling me to ask, I'll just confirm it now... I will be hosting another LiveJournal gathering thingy at the Metreon.  It'll happen on Saturday, May 3rd at 4:00pm... and we'll meet on the balcony of the Metreon's top floor as before.  To get there, get on the elevator from the ground floor and hit the button labeled 4... even though the top floor is actually the fifth floor.  If you plan on coming, feel free to post a comment here and I'll include you in the list of attendees that I'll post next time I have the chance.  As for this past meetup, here's a list of who made an appearance.  I'll cut it to prevent your friends lists from increasing in size by two more pages or something.  ;)  I know I left names off this (hell, we had more than 30 people when we went to Mel's Drive In)... so leave a comment here if you're missing from the list, and I'll edit this post to add you.

Squall-esque boots! *dies* You are the bomb. He is uber-sexy.

Also: your birthday is 2 days before mine.

It took me a while to figure out what kind of boots would look most like his, but I finally found some Harley-Davidson riding boots that were a decent match... with the metal loops and all.  As for the birthday, I totally noticed that when I first saw your profile.  I knew I had to add you to my friends list when I saw that, not that I would have had any reason to think twice about it anyways.  :)

I hope you have fun down there.  Should I reschedule the party so you can attend?  ;)

You know what?
I need to get to know you better.  Yes.  I resolve to do that, because you totally rock.  I can tell that you're the kind of person who consistently puts others above yourself... so I hope you do your best to take care of yourself when others aren't involved.  Have a wonderful weekend, and let me know if you ever want to chat or talk on the phone or whatever.  Also... I'm always here if you need a friend, and I mean that.  Don't hesitate to take me up on it... just give me a ring at (415) 302-8869 if you ever need someone to talk to, or even just someone who will listen.  :)

I told you to get new shoes like half a YEAR ago!!! But NOW you decide you need new shoes?! :P

I'll see if I can come to the next meetup or something. Ohh, that's a day before me and na's 1 year anniversary. @.@ Well as long as nothing happens on that sunday. ^^;;

Awrgh, original comment got erased. Oh well, I had more to say, anyway.

First off, congrats on Neo-Standard. James and Bryan have surpassed me in the Naokis, now having both beaten Platinum (James got only 1 Good!) Seems like Onis are now the norm for all of us, seeing as we're now sorta at the level where most of them seem doable to some extent... that's a good feeling. Speaking of that, you should try World Tour on Extreme. It's long, but very fun.

As for Sakura? Well, keep practicing is all I have to say. Just know exactly what the tempo's doing all the time... this goes for the abrupt slowdown in the middle, and the gradual one at the end... I'm sure you'll beat it in no time at all.

And thanks again for letting us have a go at IIDX6th (heheh, sounds like Strong Bad's Japanese cartoon name 20X6) back at Starbase. That was much fun once I got the hang of it. So much more Bemani is popping up in the area recently.

Speaking of that, something that might spark your interest: I'll be stopping my personal comic pretty soon and going on to making a more general slightly plot-based DDR webcomic. You'd probably get a kick out of it, it'll have some general arcade humor as well.

Who knows, I might even try to make it to the Metreon on the 3rd if that'd be okay. But in the meantime, seeya at the Base!

Aww...
Of course it's alright... and in fact, I'd be honored if you would come to my LiveJournal party.  You'd have a blast, and probably win an invite code or two.  Thanks for the advice, and all of your kind words.  You're a good guy... and you have lots and lots of talent.  :)

Me too!
I miss talking to you on the phone even more than AIM, actually.  I'll try and give you a call later today if I have some free time.  I'm really sorry I didn't call you the next day like I had planned to... I hope you understand how busy I am.  :(

I hope you can make it to the LiveJournal party on Saturday, May 3rd.  I miss you already... but I'll see you tomorrow!  Please don't forget to call me about stuff, since I need to know where to meet your best friend's boyfriend before we all head to the beach.  :)

Re: Myo!
Ever since your cellular phone went bye bye, it's been very difficult for me to get you on the phone.  I hope you'll call me back if you're able, or specify a good time to actually reach you.  I hope we can hang out soon.
