I showed the last one to Sensei Bunkessa. She said jump kicks are risky, that your adversary could react and block, which means you’re likely on the ground. Not sure if the vid is legit, or staged for a demonstration video, so any help to verify the source would be appreciated. We’ll give you some awesome credit and splatter it all over the internest.
This is the 491st .Gif Friday Post. That means that there’s over 14K .gif animations in The Archive and even I am amazed.
Top image is a sculpture entitled Malinche by Jimmie Durham.
Born ca.1500AD, La Malinche (also known as Doña Marina) was a female Nahua from the Tobasco region of Mexico. Enslaved by the Chontal Maya, she was given to the Spanish conquistadors led by Hernán Cortés in 1519. She was reported to be a hottie, was savvy enough to cozy up to Cortés, became his translator and mistress, and aided the Spaniards in defeating the Aztecs. She’s now reviled as a traitor… to those who enslaved HER.
I don’t like the title of this YouTube video at all because mocking young naïve idealistic Marxists is not a good way to explain basic economic principles and move them toward a rational frame of thought. On the other hand, this video illustrates the patience, sentience, and simple brilliance of the late Milton Friedman.
The Knitts. I like the sound. Kinda retro, kinda young, kinda wow. There’s hope for music after all.
This video annoys the hell out of me, but it’s kinda fun at the same time. Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band is Rev. Peyton-Guitar, Washboard Breezy Peyton-Washboard, Ben “Birddog” Bussell-drums.
Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more really important worldly stuff.
