tbh I never really did, though I know their lead singer is a massive Misfits/Samhain/Danzig fan so that's cool
Ah fair enough, and yeah Davey is indeed hehe. He's got a side project band now as well called Xtrmst that are hardcore ('straight-edge' hardcore), it's pretty extreme stuff, the guitarwork is ridiculous...

I think I would probably like their early stuff - I should probably check it out

Wasn't sure if fiction or nonfiction, but apparently mostly a true story. Saw the movie yeeeears ago but have never read the book! Have had it sitting on the bookshelf for probably 15 years haha. Am sure it'll relate to martial arts too.. looking forward to it

It was an interesting read. The first book was better than the sequel. Not at all sure I buy the "true story" claim.

Dan is a good guy. Was able to train with him a bit during his Systema exploration. He is an experienced martial artist and gymnast. I enjoy his books and liked the movie. He had a cameo in the movie. Enjoy the read.

No way really... very cool Brian! I also had no idea he was a martial artist, just the gymnast, well there you go, can't wait to get started on it now :)

Marc MacYoung's new e-book -- Multiple Attackers- I'm reading it now. It MUST be an electronic purchase, and you want to read it on a tablet or PC to really be able to watch the videos that illuminate the point. He's gathered a lot of good information regarding the realities of dealing with multiple attackers, putting it into terms that you don't need to be a lawyer or martial artist to understand. And he's committed to keeping the links intact and current, and even tweaking if necessary or appropriate over time, meaning that if you keep your device/e-library synced up, it'll update itself.

@jks9199 Kris Wilder and Marc had a nice long discussion (as they are want to do) that covered info on the book and different things going on. It is worth a listen. Multiple parts.

Wake up, thread!

Just finished reading through just the four gospels in the new testament, but the Lamsa translation version (directly from Aramaic rather than through multiple languages), awesome.

Bought this book 8 years ago on the dot and realised I hadn't read it (this happens frequently), starting it now. Mainly on Hui-neng's teachings.
