Odds and Ends: Mah Mah Maahhh Edition


Finally heard Gaga's acoustic Poker Face. Undoubtedly pretty cool. By the way, what a freaky bitch.

Also, re: The Fray's "You Found Me", there has been some discussion about the best part of the song. Some of you out there seem to favor the energetic:

And I've been calling for years and years and years and years
And you never left me no messages

When in actuality, the best part of the song is the last line. No, not because it's over. The segments "Why'd you have to wait" and "You found me" are consistently separated by "Where were you? Where were you? Just a little late..." At the conclusion, the song's primary concern is stated in a much more concise manner:

Why'd you have to wait to find me, to find me?


In SFIV news, in a ranked match, I won a Zangief mirror match against a player that was ranked at over 4000 (over 4000?!) Battle Points. This gives me confidence that my superior Red Cyclone can continue to climb upwards. Btw, I'm ~2585 BP and 2000 GP(G2) at last check.

Also got in a good set of Player Matches against Whatyasay, an Akuma (and occassionally Guile) player with whom I have a friendly rivalry. Facing his Gouki is definitely helping out my get-in game. Found some uses for jump-in Forward Kick, especially coming in over a projectile at distance. I've also seen the necessity of using normals to zone; this is essential against worthwhile Abels, as nothing short of a well timed EX Banishing Flat can beat a well placed Wheel Kick besides, oh yeah!, standing jab spam.

On the non-competitive, completist side of things, I only have two more Normal Trials to complete before I clear out the lot of them and start picking through the much more difficult Hard Trials. Haven't been able to combo Fuerte's Fierce Punch with his Gordita Sobat. Gotta look that up...
