Dance Dance Revolution

Nathaniel's secret to weight loss and toning for summer?
Dance Revolution"

My friend convinced me to buy this video game --the one with the arrows directing where your legs should be flailing to next and the pad to record where your feet actually land. You know the one. I agreed to it largely because I wanted to feel closer to Lindsay Lohan. She played this game (or something like it) in the 'classic' Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. She had a dance-off with her rival who happens to be the schools queen bee bitch (this all sounds so familiar...). My Lindsay won with ease and extra opponent humiliating dance flourishes because she is the star of the movie.

One of the most difficult songs in this games playlist also brings up movie memories. It's "Battle Without Honor and Humanity" from Kill Bill. It is a deadly difficult routine because the beat is slow and weird. It doesn't even help to try to imagine myself in synch with Uma as she slays the Crazy 88 whilst I bust an awkward move.

I look like a complete fool doing it but I'm already in better shape so it's a small price to pay.

Go Nathaniel, go Nathaniel, go Nathaniel.

Whenever I think of Dance Revolution, I think of Debra Messing on "Will & Grace."

I have actually never played DDR, but I think I, as a musician, would have a natural advantage over those with lesser rhythmic skills.

My friend, however, is amazing at the version you play at the computer (that requires nothing more than fast finger jumping) well, at least he was a few years ago, I haven't talked to him for a while...

I'm awful at that game.

The End.
