The Invisible Web Episode 21 (0302) – Fighting 63 in Japan

On this episode of the Invisible Web I interview Roxanne Modafferi, who is one of the headliners for the inaugural GCM VALKYRIE MMA show on Saturday, at Tokyo’s Differ Ariake (doors open 1:00 PM Tokyo and 2:00 is bell time). We discuss the etymological origins of her family name, her mini feud with Megumi Yabushita, training with the Wajyutsu Keishukai Network (Caol Uno and Yushin THUNDA Okami), anime, and more. And as a bonus I read Time and the Gods by Lord Dunsany.

Roxanne’s official website.

Fightlinker, her top sponsors who sell her t-shirts.

Time and the Gods at Project Gutenberg.

UPDATE: Roxanne won the decision in her fight today at the inaugural VALKYRIE show against Chisa Yonezawa. Congratulations~!!

“For the last eleven years (yes, that’s eleven) we here at Blather have been keeping track of every lake monster, UFO sighting, satanist, pornographer, ghost, exorcism, banshee attack, ABC sighting, religious quack, police state action, alien abduction and friendly neighbourhood Kangaroo that we can scribble down in this here site. But the truth is, there’s such an abundance of these bloody things that keeping track of them has become somewhat problematic. Until now.

So allow us reader dear, to present ‘Blather.net’s Map of the Weird’, a first public presentation of what will become an ever-growing, all-encompassing cartographic apocalypse of filth, depravity, smut and forteana.”
