monty Cast & Crew
FUN!Man it's been over a month since I did any real moving.

This is the newest version of Pump it Up (Korean version of DDR) at the local Austin Dave n Busters. I try to go there ever week/2weeks and get like 4-6 hours of just straight up hardcore dancing in. It's a pretty good workout, it also keeps me creative as for most of these vids I'm only playing the song for like the 2nd or 3rd time. People often ask, "do you memorize it?" which in a way is trying to belittle this as a case of simple memorization rather than skill. If I did memorize it I'd be able to play without looking so no. My version of freestyle is kinda improve within the bounds of the steps given me.I recognize strings and react to them while trying to tie body shapes to it. Again I always emphasize the lack of freedom for character. My repertoire of moves itself is pretty limited. And I think I should go take an actual choreo class if I want to get any better... Or watch more music videos.

Dancing is pretty underrated if you ask me. Especially in the west where there's more separation of mind and body. Much of my timing, and beats come from keeping my reactions sharp. Although I pretty dull here. But there is a pretty neat phenomenon I notice on these nights when I go to play.

On the 20-30 minute drive to the arcade. I'll be listening to music on the way. After about 4-6 hours of playing of reacting to the notes I'll get back into my car and the song that I was just listening to on the way here will suddenly feel like it's play at like 60% speed. It's pretty neat to be able to activate my own sort of spartan time for a brief moment lolol

Also did I mention I love Kpop

This is what everyone who plays DDR/PIU thinks they look like when they dance.

also i think you should try lower levels of these same songs (for eg) and try to get a bit 'smoother', or less 'static' with your movements. have you thought of trying popping and/or liquids and adding them into your freestyling?

I guess it would make sense for the lead animator (that is his position right) to understand body movement coordination that well, those are some epic moves. They need to make a version of these games that incorporate hands arms etc. for pros like Monty. I'm sure there already is, but I mean produced enough so that you can find one at the local DnB.

Music is funny that way. It's one thing to listen and another to be part of it. That's why I miss being in a band.
#26  Posted 1 year ago
Dude I love dancing! Watching music videos is how I know most things because as you're dancing you remember things you've seen and integrate them into how you move. Shame that most people in clubs round where I live don't fully go for it and just shuffle like zombies.

DDR is the best game ever and dude you have mad skills
#29  Posted 1 year ago
I tried DDR once, and failed hard core. It gave me a new kind of respect for people who can actually do well, like Monty. I don't have good coordination but damn i thought just hitting buttons with your feet would be easy. I was super wrong.
Also I dont know if it was just me, maybe it was, but the girls in 'Online' seemed like they were mocking him. It irritated me, cause lets see them do better. But since I cant hear what they're saying maybe they werent mocking him. Just seemed that way.
