*snickers* I've noticed something about DDR. I've always seen all these people at school that are computer people, maybe even overweight.
Then I try to get on the thing, and have no coordination on it at all. As a matter of fact, I don't see anybody playing it that compete in sports.
This leads me to believe that DDR follows an inverse rule of athleticism. The more athletic you are, the worse you are at DDR. That's my two cents on DDR, at least.
It's DEFINITELY better than riding in place on a bicycle for hours on end, or running in place on a treadmill.
Sure, I think we can work out a deal... I'd also be interested in bargaining for some LJ user pics.
Dear Frith... Starcrash has become a medium of exchange...
Finally the respect DDR should have! :)
I'm glad we're all on the "early adopter" curve. I can't tell you how many people have bought pads because they've been introduced to it a one of my house parties. Prolly quite a few since 1999...
Can't wait for HHGTTG as well... that'll be awesome!

DDR vs. non-athletic
OK, maybe I'm the exception. :) School is in session when I play. :)
Sad to say, I'm not the exception to Griffin's assertion. I'm not much of the sporting type but I do really enjoy DDR. :)
Belts are a 10 minute item at best. Pouches are cheep when you get there, buy one. Cloaks are a little more involved and more expensive if you buy there. I have and old one I can give you if you want it.
Breaches are not to bad either, just fronts and backs sewn together. A basic viking outfit less cloaks should be no more than a day all told.
Yeah, the belts should be easy. The only wrinkle is that I'll be using leather lacing, which is new to me. Otherwise, nothing too fancy there.
The cloaks should be fairly simple. I've made a pattern mock-up that seems easy and effective. I'm saving time by not lining them or doing any fancy decoration.
The breeches aren't too tough to make except that I don't have a handy pattern. So I'll need to draft a pants pattern and test it first. I'm trying to make garb that'll fit comfortably, if that isn't somehow contravening the spirit of the whole thing. ;)
Look up "Viking Costume" in Yahoo or Google. There are NUMEROUS patterns out there on the web for simple breechs
Oh, yes, I know how to make the pattern. I just need time to size/alter it to fit. (I could just go oversize and not worry about it, but I'd like to try to tailor it a bit.) Thanks, though.
The HGTTG movie has been within 18 months of completion for nigh on a decade. my breath is not held.
and there is no shame in prefab garb as a starter kit. ;)
there is no shame in prefab garb
Of course there is... I'm a costumer! I've got to have my delusions, erm, pride.
I had somehow never pictured Marvin as the love-child of Rover and a stormtrooper. Silly me!
Oh, and speaking of PoA... Trelawney
. I can't decide if the casting dept. is really, really inspired or completely off its rocker....
I just wonder if she realized what she's gotten into. The part keeps growing for at least two more books... And I'm going with inspired.
