You have fought thirty-six times in four countries in just over ten years. You have held championship titles in three organizations, never having a belt taken from you in the ring. You spent years at the pinnacle of your sport by fighting some of the very best to ever compete, while they were in their prime, and you beat them all. You tasted defeat early and spat it back out, refusing to drink from the cup again for nine years, six months and 4 days. Millions upon millions the world over have endeared themselves to you. You lit up the faces of children all across Russia when you carried the Olympic torch. You raised the pulses of everyone who laid eyes on you in the ring, rather they be an opponent or spectator. You are the G OAT and no one has a bad word to say when asked,

“What do you think of Fedor Emelianenko?”

 

 

Humble, fearless, focused, loving, spiritual, respectful, the GREATEST, these are the words associated with the Fedor Emelianenko. Fedor has always been a quiet, calm man who never pined for the big life. He had no interest in moving to America or Japan or England, Fedor just wanted to be with his friends and family and he wanted to support them. Fedor wanted to push himself to be better at all things and he found in martial arts what he did best. From Sambo to MMA, “the Last Emperor” rose from just another Russian citizen to the most revered man in the world of combat sports. His fan base spans the globe. Fedor has talent, drive, focus, and toughness but most importantly he had mystique. He was so quiet and humble you could never figure out what was he was thinking. If you got one of the rare opportunities to ask him, his answers were either too cryptic or perhaps just too simple and honest for you to discern any real information. Fedor wasn’t going to bad mouth his opponent to try to get inside the other man’s head to gain some advantage. Or did he do it another way? Was his quiet, reserved demeanor and almost inhuman calmness just a clever ruse to make people uneasy? No one can know but Fedor. We know it wasn’t the look of him that did it.

The undersized, Russian heavyweight was short, balding, and pudgy, not exactly wielding the average fighter’s physique. It didn’t stop him from quickly reaching stardom when he began to fight in Japan. Fedor was to be tested there; gone was the level of competition in RINGS, now he would be fighting in Pride. At the time Pride was the biggest name in the sport and as such had many of the best fighters in the world fighting in their events. Fedor would never lose a single match in Pride, defeating fellow legends of the sport like Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Kazuyuki Fujita, Gary Goodridge, Kevin Randleman, Mirko “Cro Cop”, and Mark Coleman all in their primes. He didn’t always win with flash or superior skills. In fact some victories just seemed to be a battle of wills. Nothing epitomized this more than Emelianenko’s fights with Nogueira. He would take a beating if he had to but you could not break his will. Someone’s will had to break and you could be certain it would not be his. In his time in Japan he reigned as the heavyweight king of the world for three and a half years. It wasn’t just what Fedor did that made him the greatest, it was how he did it.

He wasn’t bigger and stronger than everyone. He wasn’t the greatest tactician to ever strap on 4 oz. gloves. He wasn’t the most prolific wrestler the world had ever seen. He wasn’t even the most technical striker to step into the ring. He was, however, as tough as they come. Fedor Emelianenko had a heart the size of Russia and a chin chiseled from quartz mined in the Ural Mountains, fists harder that could drive a coffin nail, and a will that would not be broken. Fedor lost a fight early in his career, his 5th fight, on a technicality. He was cut and if you’re cut you lose. It was nearly a decade before Fedor tasted defeat again. When Fedor walked into the arena in San Jose, CA no one in the world expected Fedor to lose. When Fedor found himself trapped in the guard of Werdum it looked like so many of his previous wars, all of which he has won. Even when you saw the leg come up and over to secure the triangle choke you just knew he was going to step into it and pull out, like he did against Nogueira so many times but . . . he didn’t. When his hand tapped in submission for the first time in his professional life the world sat, stunned. Everyone watching went silent. This was a fluke and it would never happen again, right?

That “fluke” took place in June of 2010 and The Emperor didn’t fight again until February of 2011. His first fight coming off of a loss in over a decade was the main event in the quarterfinal round of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix. He was a 5 to 1 favorite and was all but scheduled to fight Alistair Overeem, a highly regarded Heavyweight and the Strikeforce Champion, or get a rematch with the only man to truly defeat him, Fabricio Werdum. Everything was set up beautifully for maximum drama. Once Fedor defeated Silva and moved into the next round the world would be guaranteed a bout of epic anticipation that would reverberate throughout the world rankings.

As usual on February 12th, 2011 the smaller, older Emelianenko stepped into the ring as a heavy favorite, this time over the giant Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. Fedor’s face locked in the same expressionless, determined gaze. The bell sounds. The fighters begin to circle and exchange blows. Silva moves about smoothly, towering over Emelianenko but, undeterred, Fedor charges in with punches landing some heavy shots and eating a few for his trouble. They engage one another in a clinch against the cage, Silva pressing on Fedor trying to tire him out. They are reset to the center of the ring and it begins again. Fedor striking . . . the fight going from standing to the clinch and eventually to the ground . . . twenty seconds . . . a flurry from both men . . . a right, a left, a right. Swinging wildly and connecting repeatedly are both fighters. DING DING! A close round, much closer than anyone expected. Fedor’s trainers speak to him in Russian, Silva’s in Portuguese. The bell sounds again. Fedor moves forward toward the center of the cage, unloading a huge overhand right and is met by the powerful, lowered shoulder of Silva. The GOAT on his back and cannot shake the bigger man from his perch. He begins to eat punishing blow after blow to the head but he defends himself and continues to try escaping his predicament. Emelianenko rolls over in an attempt to sneak out the back and the humongous BJJ black belt has the Emperor right where he wants him, but he can’t submit him. Fedor’s will shall not be broken again. He survives the rear naked choke attempt and he is again under Silva taking punishment. Another rear escape attempt and Silva tries again to choke him out. For nearly 5 minutes straight Fedor is being smothered, squeezed, choked, and pounded on by a 280 pound man whom has every intention of finishing this fight without the judges’ input. All this punishment, yet he’s still there, still fighting . . . twenty-five seconds . . . Silva has Fedor in a knee bar, but Fedor still has the capacity to reverse into a leg lock attack of his own . . . 10 seconds . . . both men attacking the other’s leg. DING DING! As Fedor rises to his feet you can’t help but notice that his right eye is completely swollen shut from the abuse but his expression is the same. His will has not been broken and he is prepared to go into the third and final round to finish this fight.

The referee and doctors call a stop to the fight. A good decision as Fedor was completely blind in his right eye due to the immense swelling. The facial expression now changes. I know that look, that’s sadness. He knows what we’re all about to hear but all hope we aren’t. This may very well be the last time we ever see him in the cage. If we never see Fedor Emelianenko fight again, we can all be proud to say we’ve seen the greatest and that we’re just fine with that.

You, Fedor Emelianenko, were the greatest heavyweight of all time, without a doubt.  Millions would say the greatest to ever step in the ring. For a decade you captivated millions and reigned atop the sport as a valiant, humble, deserving champion. In the end you went out the way a warrior should, in a blaze of glory. You took more punishment than any man should ever be able to take in a fight and you took it from a man 50 pounds larger than you and smiled, ready to go in for more. You owe us nothing, and we all owe you the immense respect you have given every opponent that you have faced. You are the GOAT. You are Fedor Emelianenko.

 

Here are the review quickies as promised, all except The Curious Case of Benjamin Button which had horrible sound issues and a lot of unbearable watermarks.

Here we go you big bunch of dick loving cum swappers ….

Transporter 3 – Jason Statham and strangely attractive  freckled red head Eastern-European broad – Action movie. That really is all this is. No real plot to speak of. I mean there is a story but the plot has more holes need plugging than your drunk mother on St. Patrick’s Day. Girl kidnapped for political reasons Statham forced out of retirement to transport said girl. Statham takes of his shirt beats up baddies. Girl finds this erotic, bangs Statham. Statham drives a car all crazy and shit, here’s the twist ….. you ready …. huh … he can ride BMX  like a Dave Mirra. Oh, and also there is a bomb strapped to his wrist and he can’t go far from the car (75 feet.). Lots of beating and punching and Statham and mostly over done (highly sped up frame rates in most action shots) directing. Other than the flow of the directing I’d say its as good as the last 1. I would still take The Transporter as the best of the 3. I know shall begin my search for Crank 2!!!

6.3/10

moving along …

Milk – Sean Penn, James Franco, Josh Brolin, and Emile Hirsh – Firstly All this Best actor in a leading role nonsense, sorry Mr. Penn, You were awesome in this movie, I’ll give you that but I give my vote to my man Mickey for The Wrestler! His performance in this movie was as good and as powerfully, and crisply delivered as any role he’s done. I would put this performance up there with Mystic River, I am Sam, and all the rest. Josh Brolin was amazing. Better even than he was in No Country For Old Men (didn’t see “W” … yet). Emile Hirsh was amazing in Into the Wild and gave an great performance in Lords of Dogtown( so I’ve heard but yet to see) alongside the late Heath Ledger. In this movie he was totally believable as a cock sucking queer, pulled it off beautifully…uh..i uh…mean he was a faggot!!! James Franco, whoa, i think he enjoyed kissing Sean Penn a little too much, that smile looked a little too genuine (closet queen). Great all around performance from the entire cast. Rather gay stuff grosses you our or you’re a homophobe or whatever the case may be you aren’t interested in this movie… SEE IT. Its is a good movie and more than about being gay this movie is about civil rights (also watch Mississippi burning for a great civil rights movie).

NEXT!!! ….

Quarantine – Jennifer Carpenter (Exorcism of Emily Rose) and Jay Hernandez (Torque and shit) – A film crew doing a late night show called “Night Shift” (like a sober version of Insomniac w/ Dave Attell) follows a fire house, hanging out and having a gay old time till they catch a call. Landlord of an apartment building in LA calls in cause he hears screams from an elderly lady’s apartment. followed by silence, and gets no response at the door. LAPD and LAFD arrive with Night Shift in tow. Upon entering the old woman’s apartment she is covered in blood and incoherent, easily startled and aggressive, then she attacks. She latches onto a police officers throat eating his neck apart …. the entire group rally to subdue the old bitch gauze and place pressure on the open neck wound of the downed officer. Upon arriving downstairs they find them selves sealed inside and quarantined by the police, fire dept, CDC, and military. No way out and, shit, when crazy groaning people eat other people shit tends to hit the proverbial fan!….

That’s all i’m saying enjoy the flick give it a go… its pretty good as far as decently budgeted “survival horror”/”zombie” flicks go.

7.2/10

Slumdog Millionaire – Dev Patel and Frieda Pinto (GOD SHE IS SO HOT!!) – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire … in India!!! Contestant Jamal Malik has never know money, never know success, never known education…but he’s known love! Brothers who watch their mother slain in a riot as children grow up homeless and the youngest of the 2 finds love as a boy in his friend and fellow begger child Latika. The plot follows Jamal’s chance on India’s Who Wants to be a Millionaire as an 18 year old assistant at a call center. He gets more and more questions right leading up to the 20,000,000 rupees grand prize the movie opens after getting the 10,000,000 rp. question right. He is arrested for fraud (cheating), tortured, and tells his life’s story and explaining how he knew the answers to all these questions. The film is a gripping tale of survival, honesty, betrayal, and love. The most entertaining of all the movies I’ve reviewed here today. This movie took home the SAG award for best Ensemble Performance. I think it was well earned, as even the children playing he main characters in the flashback scenes were very good. Great direction and story. Character development was grade. Give it a watch people I think you will have a new found respect for the work that comes out of “Bollywood”. The film uses a mix of English (by the grown ups) and Hindi (flashbacks w/ children) even the way the Hindi/English subtitles are presented was well done.

8.9/10

[editor’s note – great soundtrack]

and for a freebie an old movie (2005) …

Me, You, and Everyone We Know – John Hawkes and Miranda July – CREEPY … FUNNY …ENTERTAINING …GOOD! This is one of those movies where you watch it..you keep watching it…you keep waiting for the “awkward silence” feeling you have to go away , but it doesn’t. It’s much like the movie Happiness (watch this clip) in that regard. Not much more to say but I liked it and was thoroughly amused, intrigued, and creeped out by the whole damn thing. Here is the clip that made a friend want to watch it which  he in turn passed along to me which in turn made me want to watch it too …. ))<>((

6.8/10 plus     ))<>((       equals 7.0/10

Sex and The Bible.

Posted: September 24, 2008 in comedy, life
Tags: , , ,

I’ve been meaning to blog about this for sometime now. Seeing as how I’m waiting for some stuff to finish downloading and I don’t feel like walking all the way downstairs to play COD4, what better time than now?

Sex and The Bible

Common beliefs in Christianity lead us to believe that many sex acts are a sin and shouldn’t be performed. Moreover that nothing should be done before marriage! Holy Shit! Are you seriously requesting a Man enter into a sacred bond with a woman whom A) he hasn’t sampled and therefore could unknowingly be headed for disastrous divorce and Ten Commandment breaking sins due to her lack of sex drive or skill. No Bueno!

here is an excerpt of a professional opinion of The Bible’s view on anal sex.

This is a common misconception. Anal sex is confusing to many Christians because of the attention paid to the Bible’s condemnation of homosexual acts. However, it’s important to realize that these often quoted scriptures refer only to sexual acts between two men. Nowhere does the Bible forbid anal sex between a male and female.

In fact, many Biblical passages allude to the act of anal sex between men and women. Lamentations 2:10 describes how “The virgins of Jerusalem have bowed their heads to the ground,” indicating how a virginal maidens should position themselves to receive anal sex. Another suggestive scripture tells of a woman’s pride in her “valley” (referring to her buttocks and the cleft between them) and entices her lover to ejaculate against her backside: “How boastful you are about the valleys! O backsliding daughter who trusts in her treasures, {saying,} ‘ Who will come against me?’ (Jeremiah 49:4) And in the Song of Songs, the lover urges his mate to allow him to enter her from behind: “Draw me after you, let us make haste.” (Song of Solomon, 1:4)

America is a great nation and a beautiful country. We have it all from sprawling metropolises, with their towering skyscrapers, massive populations, beautiful architecture, and rich history, to the majestic deserts, wondrous snow capped mountain ranges, beautiful beaches formed from 2 oceans.  We have the tranquil plains of the Midwest and the fertile soil in the low delta regions of the South.

This country is a haven for those who do not feel welcome in their homeland. We have given shelter and opportunity to those forsaken by their leaders from all over the world. We bar no one from our borders because of race or religion. We strive to make everyone feel at home. We make accommodations for immigrants that often inconvenience our own citizens, but we adapt. This trait has made this country a hotbed for culture. From the Chinatowns on both coasts, to the Barrios on the West, the Hip-Hop breathing East coast, and blue collar working class of middle America we have a way of life that is as different from state to state as most continents do from country to country. There are places in America where if you’re only language is English we wish you luck. Spanish, Japanese, french, German, and Mandarin are quickly becoming pre-requisite courses for American business students. No matter color or creed we have welcomed you all with open arms. Invited you to share in the freedoms we enjoy. Yes, we have laws and restrictions. Yes, we do things a little differently than our European brethren across The Pond. Yes, we are big and strong. Yes, we seem like bullies. But contemplate the alternative.

All these things help to make us one of the greatest countries on Earth. Am I saying this is a better country with better laws and better people than , say, Britain…NO. That would solely be an opinionated statement based on my political views. That is not what I am wanting to do here.

We have laws that allow us to disagree with our government openly. There are hundreds of countries where that alone is a crime punishable by death. Imagine the feeling of hating everything about where you live, as you may well hate it here, and not being allowed to tell anyone, not allowed to leave rather you have the means or not. Imagine a world where day to day life is filled with death and dispair, I don’t mean the way it is here where murder and other violent crimes are commonplace in large cities, but where genocide has put everyone you know in the dirt and you’re only left because you happened to be a boy young and strong enough to fight. Image life in Sierra Leone.

Imagine life in countries where slavery IS still rampant. We complain about things that are so minute and not much more than an inconvenience on a daily basis, then proclaim we hate this country ? We sit in our comfortable homes, no matter where you live if you have a roof and a floor you’re better off than many around the world, and we toss around hatred for this country as if it has done nothing for us. We whine about things like universal health care, abortion, freedom of speech, same sex marriage, etc. America is the capital of “who can we blame”!

We live in the age of opportunism, everyone is looking for a reason to sue someone, to get rich quick. Make the easy dollar. Yet, meanwhile, all over the nation we have young people striving to improve the world through medicine, engineering, science, and other fields. The brightest minds in the world come here to sharpen their skills.

We want universal health care, “Canada has it!” we say. Yes and Canada has made how many advances in medicine in the last 60 years. Canadians may have made some, yes, but where did they make them? In the health care system of America. If you want insurance, get a job. If you get a full time job they will offer you health care for you and your family. I am 22 years old. I have had insurance (medical, dental, vision, automotive, life, etc.) since i was 18. Before that I was covered under my Father’s insurance plan, when he had one. I believe the give here is that all persons under 18 should be covered on insurance. Adults to fend for themselves.

We want freedom of religion, yet the same people you see at a freedom of religion rally will attend a pro-life or pro-choice rally as well. Freedom of religion you want ok you can have it, yet you don’t want freedom of body? Same with gay marriage. That’s the beauty, you can want both if you want. The way it works is that in some states it is legal to marry same sex, MASS and CALI i believe are the only 1 right now, and in some states its not. To outlaw abortion, rather you feel it against your religion or you believe it to be ok, could cause complications. Some women simply can’t have children and just the stress of pregnancy could kill them, should they notbe allowed to abort the pregnancy and be forced to die, because they were raped and impregnated? I know that is an extreme situation but is not at all a preposterous reality, is it?  If it’s simply illegal then what happens in that situation?

Same sex marriage even though i lean to the right, i have nothing against it. Homosexuality doesn’t make me angry, but flaunting that you’re different for attention does. Rather you are Gay or lesbian or Attractive or Fat or whatever, just be cool with who you are don’t shoev it in everyone’s face and people will accept you.

That’s all for today my fellow Americans. Remember we’re not so bad off, and we do allow you to leave if you want. We love you all. We only ask that you take pride in your nation and love your neighbors.

I leave you with this:

Look at that face I mean she’s just so damn beautiful!

Simultaneously Defines beauty and sexiness. She’s My mirror image, I must have her!

see she’s looking at me like, come make babies with me!

If only we were together, we could rule the world with our army of children!

I mean seriously!!! How could you not be in love with that? I’d kill my family for that!
