Ok, so why am i getting into this crazy dance thing? i mock reality shows on a regular basis, and i only truly like the auditions when they show the horrible ones. those are the best.
But i do like dancing. Movies like Take the Lead keep me on the edge of my seat. So that must be it. I caught SYTYCD about half way thru last year. My wife was watching it. I thought it was interesting, but nothing special. Then i saw some of the contemporary and ballroom stuff, and was pretty much hooked for the rest of the season. Hip-hop isnt really my thing, but ballroom is beautiful, and contemporary, especially as coreographed by Mia Michaels, always is so emotional. I've downloaded my favorite dances from YouTube.com and last season's stuff still brings it on for me.
This year, everyone is so much better than last year. Their level is so much higher. Last year was good, don't get me wrong, but the first weeks last year, from the replays i saw, were naive and juvenile compared to the performances this year. I'm excited to see how the whole thing turns out.



Now i have to pick another favorite.
He's just freakin awesome. His brit accent on a japanese face is just cool, and then his moves are tight. winner or no, he's my fav guy this season.

Girl: Toss between
Lauren or Shawna
Both hotties, both great dancers. and when it comes down to it, that's the most important thing. Them being hot. heh.. well, pos def helps.

Faina Savich kicked off SYTYCD.

I had a difficult time with this one. For one, she's sexy as hell. She's a fantastic dancer, beautiful, everything. She has a sweet personality, and seems very down to earth. She was quickly one of my favorite dancers on the show. Now that she's gone, this is my personal homage to Faina Savich.

Gun Bunny

<- Gun Bunny
heh.. that's just hot.
I've been reading a lot of manga and watching anime and playing BESMd20 lately with my son, Demon. My wife wants to play a gun bunny in our campaign, so here's a pic for her. heh..
Just something about the Japanese i find exotic and beautiful. art, music, culture, all of it.
Demon's character is an American/Japanese (mom was Japanese) 14yo who's father died in Iraq. he's staying with his Japanese uncle in Tokyo and going to high school. He's very good at the RP for only being 8. He has a great imagination and adds details in conversations with NPCs that I was surprised and pleased he came up with. It's more true RP, instead of just hack & slash, which is what i generally expected out of a 8yo. True RP is rare and hard to come by. We have fullon conversations with the NPCs, discussing daily plans and such. I thought he'd be bored by RP gaming, but he loves it and keeps asking me when we're going to play again. Heh.. i havent even had time to flesh out the details of the storyline. i was just intending to make his character. *chuckles* he's having fun, tho. so its all good.

Demon gets out of school early today. Its raining, so i dont know what we'll do. i was hoping to go up to the dam and go swimming, but that's out. maybe we'll do that this weekend if it warms up enough. freakin 100 degrees last weekend, 56 today.
Sammy is still at her mother's. She's had some good and bad times. her dad can be a real bastard. he has issues that he is too lost in his own sickness to look at. pisses me off sometimes. he treats her and her sisters like crap, badmouth's their mother to them, and has already run off his second wife. i think that one lasted less than 3 months.
I miss her bunches. we txt during the day and she calls me at night when it doesnt cost her any minutes. it's been tough to be on my own again. havent done it in so long. half the time i dont know what to do with myself, which is really surprising, because i usually do my own thing anyway. dont think i'm doing anything fun tonite. prolly pick up a movie or something to watch with demon. he prolly just wants to sit and play games. does that a lot. not that i have any trouble with that. i'm a gamer myself. i would just like to see him do other things as well. he's pretty creative at drawing, and making creatures and things on his computer with paint. i gave him photoshop, and he's done pretty good with layers and adding texture and stuff. ... and he's 8.. that's what still blows me away.
He played his first paper/dice game of D&D last friday. he's played NWN, Baldure's Gate and Icewind Dale, but never paper/dice. so that was kinda exciting. i bought him his own polyhedron dice and we rolled him up a halfling druid named Orian. he went to play with Skipphag and his kid and friends.
i've been kinda burned on them myself. not knowing what to play. i would like to run some shadowrun or cyberpunk. time has been kinda short, since Demon moved in and was in school. we had to work on his homework and that pretty much took all our time afterschool for the last two weeks. this week, luckily, he hasnt had any homework, since he gets out today, so we've had time to just hang out and watch Star Wars movies.
I have quite a bit of Warhammer that needs done with. 4500 points of Skaven rats that only a handfull are painted. then about 1000 pts of Grey Knights Demonhunters that are 90% painted, and i dont know how many Black Templars that are partial painted. I did most on the Grey Knights, because i bought them slowly and painted them as i went, instead of buying it all, like i did with Skaven. Sammy has some Witch hunters (Nuns with Guns) that she's done some on, but is still working on her color scheme. She also paints watercolors. I've been working on drawing lately, but i'm not that good. i get frusterated with faces and hands and feet. Bodies i can do pretty good at :P, but faces, hands and feet i'm having issue with. I guess practice makes perfect.
I've been blog-surfing quite a bit the last two days to see what some of you post. Some of it is pretty interesting and i've been intrigued by the things you post. Some of you i wonder what you've been smoking.
some of the things i did like, are:
the last one, the deafeningsilence-k one, is a japanese girl that types really strange. i wonder if she talks like this in person. it was entertaining, tho.
enough for now.

No, not the globs of meat stuffed with odd things like onions and green beans that mother tried to make you eat but ended up more on the floor and in the dog than anywhere.. Why do people actually expect me to eat things they know I don't like? i'm pretty picky. I love meat.. but putting weird things in it, baking it like bread, and then coating it in catsup is just... well, revolting.

But that's not the topic of my post. My good friend Frosty, over in Georgia-land, suggested i write today on Meatloaf, because at the present, he is listening to Bat out of Hell II.

While BOOH2 was a pretty good album, with goodies like Life is a Lemon, and:

"I remember every little thing as if it happened only yesterday... I was barely seventeen and i once killed a boy with a fender guitar..."

That poem always cracks me up..

Anyway, I'd still have to say that i like the first one better. Paradise by the Dashboard lights is pos def my favorite song on the entire album. At one point i had that album on 8track, vinyl, cd, and cassette, all at the same time. i think i still have the 8track and vinyl...

Many people think that Meatloaf only put out the two albums, and is currently working on the third, Bat out of hell 3... because he's not good at titling albums aparently... but those werent the only ones. I found another several years back in the basement of a used music store, back corner. Can't for the life of me remember the name, but it had nothing to do with bats and hell. i do remember it wasnt nearly as good as BOOH, but still pretty good.

And after his acting debut (Rocky Horror Picture Show), he disappeared into obscurity once more, only resurfacing about every 13 years to release another album named after his only sucessful one.

I'm starting to think that Meatloaf is a vampire. His need to release an album of the same name is like coming up from the grave to drink blood to sate his hunger for another epoch before slinking away to rest once more on his pile of money in the underworld.

huh.. maybe that's what the catsup is for.
