street fighter 4

March 17, 2007

so since I cant’ sleep, I’ll post… and suffer tomorrow.

The ritual of martial arts is a rich and varied aspect of human culture. I saw this the other day while exploring the interweb.

The Ag’Ya, Danmye or Ladja of Martinique

You know, sometimes it’s not just about destroying someone. This shows a physical expression of violence where both participants remain unharmed despite the expression. This is dope. Also it’s ill because of the duality of violent play and compassion for your opponent. This is a martial “art”, forreal.

TMAs and fighters would nodoubt question the effectiveness of this as a style of self defense. It’s a moot point to me. Foremost because a martial art is more than the ability to destroy a human being, or else the study of nuclear physics or balistics would be the ultimate martial art. Also, I do think it’s possible that this playful style could conceal practical skills, in the same way that other practical martial arts have ceremonial aspects. Indeed the physical dexterity exibited by these players leads me to think that these performers are rather fit athletes. They are very aware of their entire body and the subtle movements of human bodies interacting… which leads me to believe that that they could handle themselves in a streetfight. My favorite fighters dance (ali, bruce, any muay thai fighter or senegalese wrestler)

I think this would make a great character for a game. Looking back on the dying fight genre of video games, I remember missing a true diversity of fighting styles. I guess that’s unfair. Streetfighter was diverse in it’s own way, but wouldn’t it have been great to see an obscure martial art like Ag’ya, Systema or even Nuba wrestling in a fighting game. Like true “world warriors”

Whatup Ch’all?
“I just got back from another world, it was way, way past another side” (George Clinton, “I just got back”)… But yeah y’all. Just had my first signing at NYcomic con… man… It’s a thin line between love and hate, ya’ll… that’s all I’ll say about that… if you’ve been to a convention and/or sat at a table, you know what the fuck I mean. But Grimm handles it like a pro; it’s a testament to his hustle. I met some cool people though. Azarello, Haspiel, Vietch, Peter Gross, Dysart… whew! not to mention a some dope fans.

Glad to drop those names, they’re heavy. hahaha… you can’t really name-drop in comics, because no-one’s really famous. But I met becky cloonan too and that’s why there are tree monsters in my deviantart gallery now. I wanted to link with lots of people, because… well… comics is a lonely profession, and even when you’re in a crowd of people, the commercialization of the individual (talent) makes one feel isolated. It’s similar to the fine art world… But on that note, I missed Ross Campbell and only got to briefly build with Lesean. Just wanted to shout them out real quick.

Real quick… if you’re a fan of hip-hop… especially the wu… you probably already heard these but, if not, peep the new solos by Masta Killa and Inspectah Deck. Masta Killa dropped “Made in Brooklyn” and “No said date” within the last year. Both have some bangers. I’ve been rocking the Rebel Ins’ “The Resident Patient” pretty steady. Not to mention it’s my favorite Wu album cover since, “Cuban Links” or “Liquid Swords” (correction, like 5 minutes later: How did I forget Bill Sienkiewicz’s work on “Bobby Digital”, another favorite of mine)

Resident Patient

Also been listening to The “Good the Bad and the Queen” (off the strength of Tony Allen and Paul Simonon)… it’s good pop music.

If you haven’t copped the free “Chrome Children 2″ over at Cartoon Network, go cop it… It’s arguably better than the first one, my main argument for it being better than the first one, “It’s free!”

Working on getting some drawings up here. I’ll post some pictures of the NYcon once I get them. And if you’re reading this and you got them… run them!
