I'll assume you meant to say "Oyasumi~~~~."

And goodnight, good sir.

That is exactly what I meant but I don't like to pretend that I know Japanese so I just sort of write words out as I hear them.

Things are starting to click for me in this game. Mentally I can separate between what my foot needs to do and what my hands need to do - I just need to work on reading transitions so I can tell what hand a run needs to start on. I could also use a new Minimaid driver that doesn't drop 32nd notes but that's a pipe dream :D

Cleared Black Horizon [EXT] which is a ballin' song and I cleared a bunch of other songs none of you have probably heard of. I almost cleared TL100S on advanced and I can probably get it soon for reals; I made it through the retarded part in the middle but failed on some random dropped note during an easy part immediately following.

Now that my cymbal has been fixed and the new drivers have been installed I'm going to start playing again! I played for a bit yesterday and holy fucking shit do the new drivers make a world of difference! Thanks MonMotha! Not failing a song because every other note in a fast roll got dropped breathes new life into this game.

Cleared Reaching for the Stars [ext] which is an 80
Cleared Endless Cruising [ext] which is a 73 or something but it's hard as shit.

Going to work on clearing Onihime [adv] and TL100S [adv] since I like to think I'm pretty close to getting those down.

This game is fun as shit and I wish more people could play it.

I still can't clear Onihime [ADV] but I'm consistently able to do 70s to 75s. WHY ARE THERE SO MANY SONGS IN THIS GAME?!?! I don't think I've touched even half of the songs in this game and there's like 600 songs.

I got an A on Chronos [ADV]. Yay for new drivers!

Cleared TL100s [adv] which is an 88 or something
Cleared Fairy Tales [ext] which is somewhere in the 80s I think

Either way I am clearing hard shit I wasn't able to do before so I feel pretty good about myself and I hope you guys feel good about me too.

Heyyyyyyy, I cleared Agnus Dei [ext] which I think is like an 87 or an 88. It honestly wasn't that hard compared to other shit in the same difficulty, stuff with consistent 1/4 or 1/8 note bass isn't too bad.

I also cleared Vanessa [ext] which is an 89 a while ago but it doesn't look like I posted the brag. I'm kind of 50/50 in terms of consistency on Vanessa anyway so whatevs.

Cleared a couple of 80s but I have no idea what the songs are since they're all in J-language

Working on getting an S on Vampire Killer [ext]. I'm pretty close but the sticking on the little solo at the end trips me up.

Cleared Panasonic Youth which is an 89

Greatly improved my Concertino In Blue and TL100S scores on Advanced

There was some other shit too but nothing I could immediately recall. You ever have one of those days where you just sort of effortlessly play well? Yesterday was one of those days. I think if I just take a more relaxed approach to the game and not spaz out during hard shit then I'll play better.

I cleared Timepiece Phase II on EXT last week, I think it's like a 94 or 95.
