  1. I didn't know there were so many martial artists on this site. Pretty cool. I've done Shotokan, Yoseikan Budo Aikido, Capoeira, Jiu-Jitsu, and a bit of Kali and Wing Chun. Has anyone practiced a more obscure style like traditional Muy Thai (the old stuff that still has forms) or Silat or Savate?
  2. I can't wait for this game. If the league happens, hopefully it will last a little longer than the Diablo one...or have better communication about when the game nights are ...
  3. What's upsetting to me is that he spent years making the series and it is probably his most well known work, yet right at the end he doesn't get to finish it. I just feel horrible for how that must've been for him knowing that he wouldn't get to complete his life's work. A sad day indeed...
  4. Very cool...I used to play Capoeira a few years back but then moved and have been unable to find a reasonable place anywhere near me, so this is good. Any chance you're going to release the music for download?
  5. Must be nice to be so popular Can't wait for the previews...
  6. Thanks for the link. I gotta admit...it does look pretty cool
  7. I've usually gotten excited about the superhero movies (especially some of the favorites like batman, x-men, etc.) but the poor scripts and worse acting have really started to put a damper on the superhero trend. Ironman should be cool though for the spiff special effects alone, but we'll see how the rest of it goes I guess...
  8. Mine is completely original....since I managed to misspell the japanese years ago when I first came up with it:tomatoface: but I like it now...
  9. I'm really looking forward to this. I'm a huge fan of your work so this should be awesome. Definitely joining the email list.

    Transformers

    I don't know if anyone has seen this yet but I figured "optimus prime getting his ass kicked" fit into this thread. ale-59+foot-gundam-robot-kicks-optimus-primes-ass-279774.php I'm not making any claims as to whether a gundam could take prime, but this is pretty cool and the nerdiest thing I've seen in awhile... (Basking in the greatness that is Transformers)
  11. A movie would be awesome. Sucks if they don't have Inigo Mont...errr...Mandy Patinkin in it though...
  12. (is hypnotized by the lights and sounds...) this is pretty interesting
  13. Pretty cool stuff and good job. Welcome, from one newb to another.
  14. I'll be there. Starting from the beginning or do we already need to be at a certain level?

    Fighting

    Don't worry about it. Like I said, situations like that tend to spiral out of control and people do things they wouldn't normally do. You're welcome for the advice too.

    Fighting

    I've been training in martial arts for awhile and I've helped teach a couple of self defense classes so I have a bit of experience. 1. Situations like that tend to spiral out of control. Obviously you should try to keep a cool head and calm the situation down but people tend to overreactive in situations like that. 2. Never start a fight, just be willing to finish it if need be and know when to walk away. If you start something 1. the person's friends tend to come help 2. you're open to legal liability which = no good 3. you have no idea how psycho some people are and whether they are carrying weaponry (i.e. knives, guns, clubs, etc.) 3. That's a question you have to answer yourself. I would suggest though, that you avoid fights/fighting as much as possible. Nobody wins, a bunch of people just get hurt and it doesn't solve anything. 4. Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the big ones as of late, Judo has some ground work, and there's always western/Greco-Roman wrestling. The most important thing to remember is to keep a cool head because it'll keep you out of trouble most of the time, and if you end up in trouble it'll allow you defend yourself more effectively.
  17. Anyone up for playing tonight (Sunday) at 9 central time?
  18. That sounds great to me. Fridays and Saturdays would be perfect. Sorry I didn't get your message Bardic or I would've been there. I wasn't even doing anything that evening. PM me next time and I'll be sure to get there. Anyone up for playing tonight? (Saturday)
  19. Glad to hear you're doing alright Zircon. Sorry I missed the card too...

    Transformers

    I think it'll be awesome. The '80's transformers movie theme is better than this new one...except that's not saying much...
  21. I would like to know why he is arresting them and taking the time to chase them down too. I just don't really think he was necessarily using "excessive force"...Like I said, he's not exactly beating up on them. The worst those kids can complain about is some minor bruises, maybe a scrape or two.
  22. I don't really see how wrestling some kids to the floor, who seem to be resisting and causing trouble, to cuff them is excessive force. Its not like he was beating them with his stick or even hitting them as far as I saw. I only skimmed the video though...
  23. I'm up for playing at night (like 9-12 or 1 central time). I can be whatever class too if people have requests.
  24. Ahh I see. I haven't been getting online much thanks to school and the start of summer. Just wondering since I wouldn't mind starting back up or even playing something else (warcraft or starcraft).
