Mid-Atlantic / Regular Training - An invitation to come play
« on: October 24, 2008, 06:54:39 AM »
My schedule on Tuesday afternoons opened back up, so every Tuesday I am going to be out training for a few hours starting around 4:15pm.  I usually just train at home or at the small park nearby, but I'm going to venture to Glen Burnie High School again and train there for the next few weeks.  After that, I don't plan to travel far, but I will alternate locations every few weeks, perhaps every month.  I am simply putting this out there as an invite if anyone would like to come out and play.

Socialize / Parkour in 'The Incredible Hulk'
« on: June 15, 2008, 07:02:00 PM »
So I just got done watching 'The Incredible Hulk'.  There are several scenes in the film that appeared to have movements inspired by parkour.  Then the final time you see the Hulk run away from a helicopter, and lo and behold a dash vault all but confirmed it.  Check the credits of the movie if you go.  They credit two guys (Ilja Nikitenko, and Mohamed Elachi) as 'stunt parkour' and Cyril Raffaelli (of B-13 Parkour fame) is credited as the parkour stunt coordinator.

Not important or huge, just another sighting of it in the mainstream media.

Socialize / Dead Fantasy 2
« on: April 02, 2008, 07:54:02 PM »
I am not sure how many people here know of Monty Ohm and his work, however he just released the much awaited second episode of his Dead Fantasy Series.

Monty Ohm is the man behind Haloid, where Halo's Master Chief fights Samus from Metroid.  In the Dead Fantasy Series, he pits characters from Final Fantasy against characters from Dead or Alive. 

If you like anime, action, violence, etc.  then I recommend you check these out.

Greetings everyone.  Doc Akh was nice enough to film and edit some footage of me training one cold and damp morning.  The video turned out awesome, so take a look.

Greetings everyone.  Akh just finished editing our entry into the Assassin's Creed Short Film Contest.  We had to create a film less than 6 minutes in length that contained at least one of the following themes:

    * Planning, assassination, escape
    * Social stealth - using crowd as a means of disguise or escape
    * Assassination in public and in close proximity to the victim
    * Assassination of historical figures
    * Conspiracy surrounding historical assassination

If you want to check out further details on the contest check out the Official Contest Page http://medialab.ifc.com/content.jsp?pg=assassins_creed.html.

Hope you all enjoy.

Suggestions - What can we do better???!!! / Words Under Name?
« on: June 26, 2006, 06:33:03 PM »
I was wondering how one goes about changing the captions under your name on the forums.  I have seen several individuals with what appears to be personalized quotes or nicknames for themselves there.  I tried to find something in the profile options, but I have been unsuccessful thus far.
