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
