I know just the person who’d love these. Ninja coat hooks.
This page links to archived copies of Teenage Mutant Turtles comics going bck to their original appearance. I never caught the comics the first time around, but it’s surprising how much of the origin story is familiar, if a bit bloodier, from the film.
The first try didn’t upload properly for whatever reason. So here is Dan the ginger ninja leaping into a pile of boxes. I think he’s auditioning to be Spinneyhead’s stuntman.
That wasn’t his first go though. Here’s how he fared when the boxes were further away from the stage.
This is the internet’s must have link today. So far I’ve seen it on BoingBoing and William Gibson’s blog. From there it’ll go everywhere. Like here, for instance.
The legend of the Mall Ninja- ninjitsu trained, heavily armed, long gun owning, former special ops assassins keeping America’s shopping malls, and the anal virginiy of the young boys who frequent them, safe.
But then again I think of the mayors nephew, his face distored with tears and terror, the GAP employees who asked for my autograph, and had to settle for a cover identity’s signature, the flashbangs, and their acrid scent, the small of napalm in the evening breeze, as I crouch behind a shopping cart in the parking lot, the target practice with my dearest comrades and friends, the members of my teams, and our live fire exercises-Can I leave it all behind? should I?
Or is my life better spent as the silent, alert, stalwart, invisible guardian of the free mall.
I cannot tell.
The scary thing is, before they descend into name calling and extreme delusion the ramblings of Gecko45 and SPECOPS sound uncannily like the editorial line of the imported gun magazines I used to read.
It’s got ninjas! Revenge! Dismemberment! Lots and lots of blood! What more could we want?
The Machine Girl. The trailer’s bloodier than the average action film.
Really, what kind of fool would piss off the Shaolin monks?
China’s Shaolin Temple, the cradle of Chinese kung fu, is demanding an apology from an Internet user who said its monks had once been beaten in unarmed combat by a Japanese ninja, Chinese media reported on Friday.
Shaolin Temple, in the northern province of Henan, became famous in the West as the training ground for Kwai Chang “Grasshopper” Caine in the 1970s “Kung Fu” TV series.
Ninjas – professional assassins trained in martial arts – date back to mediaeval Japan.
A message that is relevant to all of us, I feel.
First of a possible series of Ninspirations, inspirational messages from ninja movies. This Ninspiration is taken from Ultimate Ninja, available on Amazon for the princely sum of 35p (though we got our copy for 10p). It’s every bit as so-bad-it’s-brilliant as you’d expect a 10p movie to be.
