    Simple evening. Got some dumplings and talked about dumplings (seriously some guy asked why his were pink and i offered him a chance to be our guinea pigs so we know its not poisoned lol), his passion for dancing and my passion for detective career. Talked about video games and other stuff until we were rushed out of the place because they were closing.

    Then we went to union square where I showed him some of my moves I learned in karate. We then played this game called "sticky hands" which I think was about using the body to respond to subtle changes while staying in balance

    (We must do that again Julian!!!!!!!!!)

    While doing that an old man came asking if he was an instructor because he did sound like one with his cool Australian accent. Then another asian dude came to chat with us. He asked for drugs and we didn't have but we gave him $2 bucks and he rapped and danced for us . pretty cool guy


    Then we just chat some more until the park closed down on us and it was after midnight so it was time to part. Ended with a goodnight Hug.

    Anytime you're in NYC feel free to hit me up Julian. Next time we go out and busk(music performance) or do some dancing martial arts at prospecticon_biggrin.gif

    Haha, I guess I don't mind being 'adorable'. *sigh* ;)

    I really had a wonderful time. In fact, I just woke up and it's past 1pm! Sorry you have to go to work! Prospect would've been fun today.
    I've got to relearn all my martial arts sets. I've been reapplying the information in all these different ways, but need to get back to the roots. Sticky hands is still my favorite game to play and teach. My master can play it blind on one foot and never stumble. Grrr, one day!

    I'm gonna head back to Philly after visiting Sephiroth in Massachusetts over the weekend, but I'll be back in a couple of weeks. icon_smile.gif

    *HUG!*

    Haha I love those dances.

    Ok, so this is the set that I was trying and failing to remember, called Da Hong Quan. This is my master in China, Shi De Yang. All praise. He's a demon.

    Wow thank you so much! icon_smile.gif he's amazing, no? I remember being around him. He would project a stillness and peace. Calm water. No matter how furiously he was moving. The power just radiated off of him. And loving kindness.

    If anyone would like to learn the game I taught Thomas somewhere along my travels, I would be happy to show you.

    Also, changed my name to Drift. Thought it more appropriate to where I am right now.

    I might end up staying over the weekend? Haven't heard from Seph, since he's gone AWOL. icon_sad.gif hope he's ok. Was going to visit Providence too, but maybe that'll have to wait till the following week.

    I too hung out with him in NYC recently and had a blast... especially when we were standing on the subway and he began to teach me his theory of how best to learn just about any skill... that is until some tanbur musician just happened to be next to us and stole his attention away from me. What are the odds...

    One of these days you're going to teach me how to learn!
