Journal: likah isa [modern arnis]

Journal by subgeek
i posted this over at my multiply page, but i thought i'd put it here too.
this evening i was promoted to level eight, likah isa. it's called "first brown" in english, but this is the belt that follows "brown," so it's actually the second one.

Journal by subgeek

i have to back up just a little. through the benevolence of another individual, both an xbox 360 and a playstation 3 have recently come into my possession. my benefactor shall remain nameless. even though this probably won't be read by that person, i'd like to state that i am deeply grateful.

but that's just background.

Journal: albums battle 1

Journal by subgeek

my sister sent me a link to this battle of the bands movie that i thought i'd share here. it might not be safe for work if you work where people would be offended by the cover of nothing's shocking by jane's addiction or if you wouldn't like to have your coworkers see you watching something that strongly implies various sexual activities without actually showing them.

this evening i had my level seven belt belt test, which is the first of four brown belts in modern arnis. the short version is that i rocked out. i knew the material forwards and backwards. my instructors also had me go through some stuff beyond my level, and i did pretty well with most of it.

i feel alright.

just a shout out to sielwolf for pointing me towards boxcutter. oneiric is available on emusic, apparently. this stuff is fantastic. it's like the techniques of venetian snares aplied to the mood of boards of canada. it's very purposeful in its composition, very much a cohesive point of view while managing not to get stuck constantly looking the same direction. i almost feel bad for using my free trial downloads to get it, feeling i should pay for good stuf

i just love the way the amen sounds. it's like a comfort food for my ears that i just can't get enough of. i prefer that people do something interesting with it, but i'll listen to uses that are less inspired and still enjoy it. for me it's become an instrument.
