Upsidedown in the air is not a good feeling
Monday. 3.19.07 11:02 am
Yeesh, talk about intense this morning. The team's gymnastics coach came to help spot us on tricks, so we could transition to the hardwood floor and hopefully get them down before regionals (for those of you who don't know, I do competitive jump rope and gymnastics is always a good element to have in a routine). So I had never tried a roundoff backhandspring before, even at gymnastics...and he wanted me to do it. On the hardfloor. For the first time in my life. It wasn't exactly the most blissful experience of my life, but long story short I got roundoff backhandspring in about a half hour. I'm pretty sure I'm never attempting it again unless my coach demands it of me....Ulgh, everytime I punched off the floor I kept thinking to myself "DUDE you should not be doing this."


Just a little vid my friend took while we were in chem. Heh, so much for science. That trick's pretty easy...basically the lazy way of doing a front flip.


So. I probably should be doing homework right now. And my parents will probably attempt to assassinat me if they find me on the computer. I'd rather live to blog again tomorrow, so good day all. Or...night

Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
When aliens attack
Friday. 3.16.07 6:42 pm
First of all, I would like to remind everything that I am terribly inefficient at math. No reason, just wanted everyone to know. Now onto business.

So maybe they weren't exactly aliens. But you can't deny it looked a little extraterrestrial. Or something from the Day After Tomorrow. I saw this on the way back from gym, and I whipped out my phone and snapped a few shots.



Stay in your houses!

Spoilers ahead, el capitan. How many? 300.
Wednesday. 3.14.07 3:14 pm
For the next few weeks the Federal Way School District is doing WASL testing in all its schools. To sum up the WASL: an incredibly simple, standardized test required to graduate from high school. Anyhow, since I passed it last year, I get to be exempt from the morning testing sessions meaning...waking up late! Or not , since all this week there's AP study sessions and a doctor's appointment. Curses.

Anyhow, turns out that tinnitis junk was just caused by a buildup of wax in my innear ear something or other. So now all is better. I scoff at my mother, however, for asking the doctor about ways to get me to fall asleep. I refuse to sleep, I don't care how much melatonin they give me.


[WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD]






I saw 300 yesterday with some friends. The movie is outrageous in terms of spectacle and how epic everything has to be. There is not one detail that was not exaggerated. How epic would it be if there was only a pile of the townsfolks' bodies? Not very, which is why there had to be a tree full of them. And a storm destroying a fleet of ships? Nope, it had to be a frickin tempest complete with hard metal music roaring amongst the thunder. Blo0d didn't spill, it sprayed, and the movie had so much slo-mo action it gave The Matrix a run for its money, and that's saying a lot. Considering how much I love The Matrix. I don't think I've seen another film that has such a small amount of clothing either. Speedos and red capes for the guys, revealing dresses or no clothes at all for the women. All in all, I don't think it'd be very easy finding a movie that even comes close to the degree of epic-ness in 300. Even the secks was epic. Beat that.
[SPOILERS END HERE]

On Monday we did speed drills @ jump rope practice. I was pretty excited about my score...172 jumps in 30 seconds chyeah . After several complex mathematical calculations I've determined that to be 5.7 jumps per second, and I don't even know how that is possible...but it is trust me.


---Edit---
Oh, and just to clarify...I DID like the 300 movie. My assessment of it may have come across as a really corny, cheesy, overdone movie, but it's not. It was pretty awesome. Go see it.

Tinnitus, dentists, rappers, and dramatics
Monday. 3.12.07 3:32 pm
I've had this ringing in my right ear for the past week. When I'm surrounded by the chaos of school, I don't notice it much, but now that it's relatively quiet I'm suddenly aware of its irritating presence. It all started some days back when I fell asleep with my iPod in my ears. The bass comes prominantly from the right earbud (I think), which would explain why the eardrum is going berserko. I took a little initiative--a big step for me--and looked up my condition on Web MD, discovering it was something called tinnitus. It can be caused by either continued exposure to loud noises or aspirin poisoning, and I can assure you it isn't the latter of the two. I was, however, a little concerned by this little tid-bit: "There may not be a cure for tinnitus, but your doctor can help you learn how to live with the problem and make sure a more serious problem is not causing your symptoms.". Oh yeah great. Really looking forward to it. If I'm not here tomorrow you all know why.

Haha I have to admit, all this drama going on around Nutang is pretty atypical...at least since I've been around. Normally I feel at least marginal pity for the users who don't have a clue, but this time things are just ridiculous. Anyone else notice how there've been two goodbye entries posted this week, each complete with "hey come here and feel sorry for me" sentiments? Nutang, the internet, or people for that matter, aren't always going to be dishing out sympathy when you're actions don't exactly fit your age. If you want a more friendly, cuddly, internet environment, I suggest visiting carebear.com. 'Nuff said.

I have this friend who has to have about 6-7 teeth pulled, or something like that...problem is, she will most likely have a panic-induced siezure at the prospect of getting knocked out via gas. It's required for the operation! How else are they going to do it. Well, that was the question, and here are some potential answers.
A skillet to the back of the head.
A pen that is secretly a tranquilizer blowgun.
A Tazer
Rappers

That flippy feeling
Saturday. 2.17.07 10:01 pm
I got my backflips back! That was a little redundant, since backflips are supposed to be going back...but I mean I sort of lost them for a while. I'm going to try it on the hardwood within the next two practices. Promise.

My uncle came over for dinner tonight. He brought someone with him...she was err...interesting? Yeah actually by that I mean somewhat creepy. No offense to my uncle. She apparently enjoys doing dishes, and while we were all saying goodbye she says to me "Brian I enjoyed watching you do the dishes!" Oh yeah thanks! .

Haha I'm having so much fun with this iPod. I've downloaded like a half a gig of music since I got it lol...which reminds me nobody (except for Frosty) has posted their favorite bands/sons I'm basically just looking for new branches of music...oh and no country...plz . I got nothing against country, it's just not...my favorite

It takes a jump roper to know one, I've decided . At demonstrations, I've realized that the general public only "sees" the really big, impressive stuff like flips and multiples. The more intricate art portion of jumprope, like rope manipulation, are pretty much wasted on them . Not because they're jerks, but just because they don't know what I'm doing. I did a demo last night at my High School for a drumline fundraiser...it went moderately well. Elaine showed up out of no where! Haha it was really fun though I just decided to do pairs with her like 5 minutes before we went on, and afterwards we went to dinner. Grand stuff.

Basically, I need something to do. I have a 5 day week with nothing planned...hmm time to call some people up while avoiding homework at all costs
. I signed up for 3 AP classes next year...and physics. And 3rd year Spanish. AHH . I really don't know what I'm getting myself into...and the best part is, I'll probably have no friends in those classes either! . Yeah that'll be a fun way to finish off my senior year...

So pretty much I just babbled the hell out of this entry becuase I'm rather bored, waiting for my iPod to finish syncing. What's up with those sync libraries anyway? It sucks cuz I can only use the PC for music now . Wellll time for me to shut up and find something productive to do...remember to Note or comment some musical recommendations. [plz]

Ciao all

When rap battles go wrong
Tuesday. 2.13.07 8:03 pm
Bleh, I've been sick for two weeks now...I thought colds weren't supposed to last this long . I guess must be extra-qualified.

So half of my school is black, and on Friday there was a rap battle. I would've gone to see for myself, but I was to afraid of getting shanked or something. I hear both the guys sucked, but of course one of them starts trash talking on the bus. Long story short: fight! . Haha yes kids, let's fight about a rap battle.

There was in insanely long jump rope tournament on Saturday on Bainbridge Island...I woke up at 6 in the morning and got back at 10 at night . It was realllly fun though, I got to kick it with my new team and me and Elaine pwned at pairs. The whole stands were cheering afterwards...it was grand. Only problem was, I got no video! I think someone might have recorded my freestyle, but I don't know how to transfer VHS to digital . Oh well maybe next time.

We got Course Catalogs for next year's registration... Usually, they have our mascot on their...but somehow they managed to mess it up. Lol seirously how do you do that? Instead of being the Federal Way Eagles, there was a vulture watermarked onto the front of the catalog page. lol wtf?
=
???


Other then that, my life has been as dull as usual, although my parents have agreed to buy me an iPod since I got all A's moaha . And since that occasion is fast approaching, I'd like to be able to fill my new gadget with some songs...and as of now I'm a little short in that category. So if anyone has any good songs/bands to recommend, I'm all ears. Just no country please .

G'day all

P.S. Tomorrow is valentines day. Sucks for me lol

The more betterer news
Thursday. 2.8.07 2:46 pm
So here's what I meant to say yesterday, before my evil ranting took over.

Every two years, my coach @ jumprope has to make a decision. This decision involves picking groups of 5 to represent our team at the World Trials. Guess who got f*cking chosen, biatches .

Basically, if my group and I qualify at Trials...I'm going to be part of Team USA. And I'm going to go to Worlds. Omg. Hold on a sec I need my inhaler...


P.s. Shoutout to Ikimashokie...unfortunately I can't get on her site because my computer loves being an idiot, and she asked where I get my jump ropes, so here's the site: www.buyjumpropes.net. If anybody wants to pass on the word that would be grand
