I am in week 2 of my dance training at the kabuki academy. Japanese dance is so different than ballet or jazz. Completely the opposite feet positioning. I am learning the nuances of kimono wearing too. Its hard work, but I am loving every minute of it.

SteamconIII Oct 14-16

We're now less than TWO weeks away from the third annual Steamcon in Seattle WA, and it promises to be an outstanding event.

Sepiachord will be there & we'll have a table in the Grand Mercantile loaded with stuff for people to check out.
If you're a sepiachord/steampunk music act & would like to send us items to include ACT NOW and drop us a line.
sepiachord at yahoo dot com

On a related note: if you are attending SteamconIII: Sepiachord is suddenly in need of help watching our merch table. Contact us at the above address if you'd like to lend a hand.

Finally, we still have room on the limited edition A Sepiachord Reliquary thumbdrive that we will be selling at Steamcon as a fund raiser. So if you're a musician and would like to lend us a song to use on this project let us know!

The Sepiachord Crew.

I start Japanese dance lessons next Saturday!
I do Kabuki Academy introductions tomorrow!

I feel like I should bring a gift. In fact, Im pretty sure I should bring some japanese sweets or something. just something small to show respect and as a thanks for allowing me to take the class.

not sure. I know its appropriate in Japan, but is it still appropriate here?

ah, etiquette, why you no let me be.

- I need to start posting more again :)

- I finally got over that nasty cold that kept me down for 3 weeks. Yay!

- I have a TON I wanna do, but housecleaning is the most important one right now. For reals, my house is messy. this must change.

- I am using the LJ 2 weeks to steal back all my scrapbook and icon images. I really cannot justify spending the extra $20 on LJ when I already have server space to drop all those images on. Im enjoying LJ's hospital game tho. add me if you like. I am also playing airport.

- Speaking of games, Jamie and I started another horror game last nite thats like silent hill but it isnt, Alan Wake...What Ive seen so far I like. :)

- Guess who's coming to Crypticon in a few weeks..
Bill Moseley! you should go say hi! Im dying to get a photo of him and my wife. or better yet, a video of the two of them having an "argument" both sounding like Otis.. :giggle:
guess who else is gonna be there??? Rose McGowan.

-aaaand, guess who's DJing our spookyclub: Ginger Fish. You should go!

- speaking of club events-- look! a smoke free Saturday! (for those of you not familiar with Seattle, all public bars and clubs are nonsmoking. Mercury is a private club, therefore, allows smoking... so smoke-free nights are exceptions at our spookyclub.)

- There's the Goth Prom this weekend. Maybe I will ask Jamie if he would like to go... ETA: My wife already has a prom date! LOL

but first, my house must get cleaned. No planning until I clean.

You were born during a New moon

- what it says about you -

You want to leave an impression on people and make your mark on the world. When you love an idea, you'll work hard for it, sometimes even dropping whatever it is you're doing to go on to the next new great thing that's captured your imagination. The more freedom you have to chose what you're doing, the busier you'll be.

What phase was the moon at on your birthday? Find out at
