Posted by invizweb on December 31, 2009

In this brief epilogue and finale (for now) of the MMA Blitz Radio Network, I talk myself to sleep until I see Mark Danger on Skype and he tells me of his future prospects. Also (SPOILER ALERT) the Dream/SenGoku FIELDS DYNAMITE results, and I Tarot readings for personalities and promotions in the Combat Sport industry.

Fools’ Gold Opinion and Editorial BOXING DAY SPECIAL: On The Rules of Engagement: Face Punching vs Leg Kicking (and the Lack Thereof)

Posted by invizweb on December 26, 2009

Hello folks.  I   have an almost full-time retail job now (anywhere from 25-33 hours a week with 9 hour shifts, unless there are long lines) and am a part-time student (7 hours of classes each week over the course of 3 nights with an hour or so of homework for each class at least). Thus I lack the time to think.  However, I was watching some YouTube, and thought about a conundrum:

American Kickboxing, which spun off from  American Full-Contact Karate is a combat sport that prohibits the use of kicks or any attacks below the waist.

whereas Full-Contact Karate from Japan usually prohibits Face Punching.

Thus my latest poll question, if you were paid to fight in a week’s time notice and you are given the option of either being handicapped by taking a match which either bans kicks to the leg, or a bout which forbids face punching, which would you rather take?

For HobbitFriend: Meece Has Two Mommies (and She Gets to Play Longer)

Posted by invizweb on December 5, 2009

This story is for a friend who is like a mommy to two lab-bred white fancy mice she has as her roommates.  Maybe your two meece need a baby girl meece to raise so they can be more active and they all live longer 😛  Below an interesting study conducted in Japan determined that meece are best raised with two mommies (who they are cloned from) instead of a mom and a dad they get their DNA from.  Think If These Walls Could Talk 2 with Sharon Stone and Ellen DeGeneres.  Anyways, they make an adorable family.

Eddie Fatu (Jamal, Umaga) Passes Away at Age 36

Posted by invizweb on December 4, 2009

According to the Figure Four Weekly/Wrestling Observer site, Eddie Fatu who wrestled as Umaga, Jamal of 3 Minute Warning, and O.G. Ekmo, has passed away at 6:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.

I wasn’t very comfortable when Armando Alejandro Estrada appeared into the ring to confront Ric Flair and then introduced the world to his “Samoan BullDozer” Umaga. He seemed like a caricature. A racist throwback to times passed. To be honest though, I did not find hsi work as Jamal that exciting, and I did not see his work in Music City Wrestling (where WWF management had high prospects for him), FMW, or his apparently incredible run in All-Japan. Also, I thought he stiffed Flair that night. However, as time went on, the gimmick grew on me. Umaga was a scary archetypal “monster” who played the role perfectly crushing jobbers each week until John Cena stepped in. His series of matches where he carried Cena were very good.  His biggest career match was the Wrestlemania XXIII match against Bobby Lashley with Vince McMahon’s Hair on the line vs Donald trump’s Hair.  His last match was last Saturday in Sydney during the Hulkamania Tour.  Ken Kennedy was his final single match opponent.As a man born into the Pro Wrestling business, he treated it as such with utmost respect. He will be missed. I give my condolences to his friends, family, and loved ones.

On this episode of the Invizible Web, I interviewed  Fortean Times contributor, Disinformation World News senior correspondent, and freelance MMA blogger, Joe Nolan.  We compare life in the Motor City and Music City.  We discuss how Joe started writing with Fortean Times, hooked up with the Disinfo Crew, and prepare against Austin Gandy’s episodic Discordian barrages.  Finally we talk MMA and the Martial Arts: Who are some of his favorite fighters, GAMENESS, and what he really thinks about PRIDE compared to the UFC.


The opening song was Dick Justice’s “Cocaine.”

The second song was Joe Nolan’s “Walkin’ with the King.”  It is part of the King album.  Download it here with other tracks.

The third song was Joe Nolan’s  “The Night Comes.”  It comes from the Blue Turns Black album.  You can listen to it here on his Myspace Music page.

The closing track was Joe Nolan’s “Dead Man’s Song.”  It comes from the Blue Turns Black album.   You can also listen to it or buy it here on his Reverbnation Page.
