Got a few of those, dunno if it's the ones you want

I am getting a nice collection of reactionary gifs though.  I'm oddly happy about it.

EDIT: THE WINNER

I finally made my aforementioned big life decision.  I've decided that 2014 will be my final year playing with the band.  I love music and it's been a great ride (both with this band and my prior bands), but hot damn that whole "touring band" lifestyle's REALLY taken its toll on me and I look forward to closing that chapter of my life.  I have other priorities in my life that demand my time, energy, and attention.  

So, yeah, Dincrest will be hanging up his "rock star" spurs.  This was a super difficult decision and one I've been twisting myself in knots over for months now.  I'm not the type to make snap decisions, I always think them through often to the point of overthinking.  

The band is obviously not happy about this development.  It's like a painful breakup with a significant other (or in this case, four significant others).  But I gotta follow my heart and know when to say "enough is enough."  I think they'll be alright, though.  They existed for years before me and will thrive after me.  

EDIT: And Mesh, yes.  I naturally do walk fast and with a wide stride.  The only times I don't walk fast are if I have the flu, if my legs are destroyed from a massive bike ride, or if foot traffic's packed like sardines (though I do look for openings to slip through.)  

Looking for a post of mine I missed this bombshell.

Damn.  I'm sorry, I know over the YEARS this has been a big thing in your life and you've shared a lot of it here on the 'Fan as well.  I'ts for good reasons I assume, but I hope you still enjoy some wicked jam sessions with them or get into some new musical project.  You're a talent!

Meanwhile, I've loved all the bike-a-thon posts.  It's great you can do something for good health and for a damn fine (albeit tragic) cause.  You're giving hope to people; all charities do, I'm sure.  I have channeled "DIN" on my gym runs...  I still have little vitality, but it helps the fight to keep it going.


Believe me Dice, this was NOT an easy decision, but I firmly believe it is the right decision for me.  And I'm glad I'm an inspiration for your workouts.  I've had a lot of people tell me that lately.  I take it as a sign that the direction I'm steering my life into is a good one.  And, not gonna lie, I do use this song to help me pedal stronger and faster up hills like Onoda in YowaPeda: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrshPMtH0CY

As for Freudian psychoanalysis, yeah much of it is bupkis nowadays but if it weren't for Freud's (and later on Jung's) bizarre theories, psychology as we know it would not exist.  The fact that the human mind and imagination can veer off into such twists is pretty damn fascinating.  I was a psych major in college so I do respect Freud's contribution to the field.

My dad turned sixty on Saturday. My parents got a cavapoo puppy a few days before that. Statistically speaking, it's not unreasonable to expect the dog to outlive my dad.

Welp.

On the other hand, the guy sitting across from me on the bus had the same kind of boots that I did, which made me weirdly happy.

Also I think I need more baking soda for my floor. It still smells ungroovy.

Maybe I should start exercising too... I mean, cycling to the next town to buy groceries is fine and all, but I think it should do something more. Maybe get one of those exercise bikes? If I did, I could work and exercise at the same time.

In other, kitten related news: it's not going to Rolo/Lulu/Milla/whatever because my sister's boyfriend has a bad taste in cat names. But, my sister still managed to accidently name one after a Tales character, so yay for me! Mint is adorable.

Speaking of exercise, I've been bad. Between a lump of odd work hours, my gym partner being a fucking flake, and destiny sucking away free time, I've missed about a month of gym visits. Went back yesterday and am on the way there now. Trying to decide on legs or back today, such a dilemma.

Rough to get back into the floor.  Channel some Dice though! SHE NEEDS NO PARTNER.  
LONE WOLF, OOH-HA-HA

I also wear some awesome yoga pants, I recommend channeling that too... those things are divine.

Routine training ride was surprisingly eventful today.  

1) When going up my massive climb, a female motorist on the way down slowed down to check me out.  I didn't respond beyond a cursory head-nod, because I'm in the zone when I'm climbing and I can't let up on a serious slope.  

2) A few minutes later, I saw another rider who was younger than me and looked to be in good shape walking his bike up a hill I would consider a "bunny slope."  I roared past him.  

3) Not long after that, "tag, you're it!" struck again.  Car with a couple cute girls whooped at me as they drove by, so I sprinted to the stoplight, caught up to their car, said, "Tag, you're it!" and they were like, "Ooh, you're fast!"  Sadly, I didn't get their Facebooks or anything, because the light changed rather quickly before the dialogue got anywhere.  Looks like I need to work on making my pick-ups faster, since I'm most confident on the roll.

Agent Destiny....sounds kinda meh.

How about Strangent D.? Makes about as much sense as the stranger already, lol.

@Dice: Yeah, I caved on a partner, fuck it, I just play some Rules of Nature whenever I lift a heavy weight and then I bash a Metal Gear or 2.

It's like the new Guile theme. It goes with everything.

Sounds like a discussion: what tunes do you play (either on a device or in your head) when you work out?  

For me, it's either cheesy Japanese music like the aforementioned Love Hime theme or something heavy and fast like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aadmG5-k3w or this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYr-M5YcFg8 or this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lXYHwyC9GM

Returning to the straight-edge lifestyle back in June was one of the best decisions I've made, and good straight-edge hardcore just amps me up all the more to conquer things.

No clue how you wind down from a long ride without an ice cold beer.  to each their own though. 

For workouts and long rides, I tend to go with some off the wall stuff like chiptune.  Anamanaguchi is about as good as it gets from that genre.  which is so "not for everyone" that it's almost for no one.

When it comes to weight lifting, I try to play music that I would play for grinding in an rpg. Rules of Nature, Fighting of the Spirits from tales stuff, the battle theme from Digital Devil Saga 2, and Clubbed to Death from Rob Dougan usually are my favorites for heavy lifting. Also, Deadly Sinners from 3 inches of Blood usually is what I look for when I bench. (Not linking anything cuz lazy, hurr hurr)

When I do my tiny bit of cardio now, I just play a lot of video game music, usually green forest zone from sonic adventure 2. I do like pretty much anything for walking around, which essentially is my cardio.

I listen to music created by drag queens when I work out. Or more realistically, music sang by drag queens created by other people.

I tried listening to game music to get pumped, but maybe I wasn't listening to the right stuff but it just wasn't doing it for me. That being said, one of my go to songs for when I'm feeling down is Bayonetta's version of Fly Me To the Moon.
