Current Thoughts:

- Had a nap, and I feel a little less tired.
- Should've been working on Logic assignment.
- But I walked by my piano. mellow.gif
- I sat down and actually played it. Haven't done that in a few months.
- Still can't play that song I composed. Why can't I play something I wrote? ph34r.gif

QUOTE(hitokiri @ Apr 3 2005, 04:13 PM)
depending on the style of kung fu being taught... i doubt its true shaolin kung fu, most schools that say shaolin aren't really shaolin they just know the five forms, so most likely it will be one of the various deriviations of win chung. the most basic difference between karate and most forms of kung fu is the fact that karate works on the principle of strength, mastery of the basics, and is a mostly external martial art; whereas most kung fu schools are based on finesse, speed, proper form, and is a far more internal martial art.  you will have to get use to hitting someone 3 or 4 times with fast, lighter hits, as opposed to that one good strong hit that karate teaches.
[snapback]146382[/snapback]


your description of karate sounds right, especially since i did shotokan, the "one-hit kill" style. and yeah, there was a huge emphasis on the basics, which i understand is important, but i didn't exactly want to pay and arm and leg to do the same things each week.

this is the description on the kung fu page (www.usakungfu.com): Traditional Hua Men Kung fu include 12 lightning hands, 36 seal hands and ancient grappling techniques. Contemporary Wushu include all northern and southern styles hand forms and weapons, such as Long fist, Southern fist, broadsword, straight sword, spear, staff, etc. Other traditional Kungfu such as Shaolin, WuDang, Baji, Pigua, Tongbei, Drunken fist, Animal forms (monkey, mantis, scorpion, etc.)

sounds really interesting (but how do you teach drunken fist? tongue.gif), i think i'll stop by this week with my mom and check out how the classes work. the only thing is that right now their new branch is really small, so classes are tiny -- like one to three people -- and my mom doesn't really want me to be alone with some guy. but hopefully it'll work out; i really need to get back into shape, especially with all the chocolate i like to binge on. tongue.gif

I've done that too. If you write on paper, it's usually easier to write it out than play it as you're probably got a better grasp on how it will sound and have more technical options when writing it than when playing it.

Toby-Chan
After researching a bit, trying to find the band who sings the ending theme to Boogiepop Phantom, I was disturbed to find it was not a band, but an individual artist, known only as "Kyoko".

Who is a woman.

This is disturbing, only because while listening to it, early on, I was always thinking, "Man, the guy who does the vocals for this song has a really sexy voice!"

::Blush::

Am I gay now? >.>

Current Thoughts:

- No more Logic assignments!
- But there is one more test . . .
- I've had about 10 hours of sleep in the past 3 days.
- I feel surprisingly energetic.
- And now, for some much-needed exercise, I am going to go Swiffering around my house.
- Then sit at the piano and maybe practice.
- Then I'll sit some more and read some Plato.
- Then I'll sit in front of my computer for another few hours.
- I sit so much, as well as eat. I probably need more exercise.
- But why the heck am I still a little underweight?

-Happy that I'm finally starting that fanfic....

- where are the persimmons when i need them?!
mei_tenshi
- I made honey nut white fudge. They smell good. Too bad I can't have any unless I pay myself the 75 cents that they're probably not worth.
- School today was...disoriented. Everyone seems to be hung over from Spring Break. That, or they're really having a hangover.
- Why'd it get windy all of a sudden?

-Yea I think I got allergies too. My nose was clogged up pretty bad last week.
Quistis88
Current Thoughts:

- Just finished playing my neglected piano.
- Managed to learn two songs. mellow.gif If this miraculous learning speed is the result of not getting enough sleep, then maybe I shouldn't sleep at all.
- I like how my typing speed increases dramatically after playing the piano. biggrin.gif
- Must work on Plato now. I am determined to have the entire thing read by Wednesday.
Slashrose1010
