BLOG OF POOTENHEIMER... Fear it, Love it
The week begins
Monday. Thanksgiving week. Sort of lazy. It's not too bad not having a full-time job. I get to sleep IN. Very, very nice. Lounge lazily about until lunch, then head to work to give them a taste of my crazy efficiency. Then maybe some kung fu.
Yep, today I got some nice kung fu training, finished my latest form. Learning it, anyway. It's a rather long form. Most starting forms in the American schools of martial arts have a number of moves in the teens. 16 or so. Not too complicated. Our first form has over 80 moves. And it's not just "punch, block, turn this way, punch block, turn this way, do it again, and again, and again". We actually have complicated moves. And hand positions more than just the fist. Anyway, the form I just finished learning is in the neighborhood of 300 moves. It's moderately difficult. True Hung Gar stuff. (Google that, if you're curious about it.) This is the stuff classic Jet Li and Bruce Lee movies are made of.
I've been listening to a lot of Monte lately, too. My latest craze is the song "Tug of War". You should check it out. And the other obsession I've had is replaying Zelda. The Ocarina of Time. Except not exactly. I'm playing the re-release, with the legendary Master Quest. One of the best games ever made. Seriously. 'Nuff said.
My random link! This is something a friend of mine sent me, I thought I'd share. A nice Thanksgiving message.
