I wanna Sword....
2003-11-05 19:54:18 ET

I just saw Kill Bill: Vol. 1... I have to say that is the most violent film I have ever seen. And it was fucking incredible. I really want to learn how to use a sword now. Just the grace of using something so deadly is beautiful.

And I even know the sword I want... (it's the first one on the page).

When I have money... It will be mine. Oh yes. It will be mine.

I'm obsessing, I know. And in another few weeks I won't care. Boys and their toys. yeah yeah yeah

2003-11-05 20:00:17 ET

that's.. actually a really cool sword.

And it's not just boys and toys.. I have a weakness for blades m'self. :P

And apperantly fully functional. I'd like to know how many times it's been folded.

2003-11-05 20:01:57 ET

Hm, I have seen that one before, and I to confess to liking it muchly. They also have a nice tanto version of it as well.

2003-11-05 20:02:56 ET

Well look at that! If I hadn't been so daft and had scrolled through the rest of the page I would have seen the tanto there.

Smoooooth playah.

As far as katana's go however, there is much grace to using them in the sense that a curved blade is by far the best for long sweeping slashes, but on the flip side, you really lose some of the more delecate and precise moves that a good striaght-edged blade can turn out. Katana's are definately a good sword for someone who can't stop moving. Get backed into a corner and you're done. Parrying isn't the forte of a katana.

However, if you're good enough, who needs to parry? ;)

(though I doubt you'd actually be using the sword in combat, silly me) =P

Yeah, a guy I know has all three of the blades on that page.. But I think he paid something like CDN $300 a piece. Even to buy from that website in USD, you still save a bundle.

I talk like I have money...

2003-11-05 20:08:21 ET

no, I just like the look of 'em

2003-11-05 20:13:02 ET

I love the look of swords, but I just can't get into the 'feel' of them. Derek has swords, but I have daggers.

*grins like a brat*

2003-11-05 20:13:20 ET

True, it is certainly a nice sword.

2003-11-05 20:14:33 ET

i kinda like the second one... just cuz i like double bladed... but yeah, first one nicey.

2003-11-05 20:16:09 ET

well, I should get to bed...
to dream of swords
and lopped off heads

2003-11-05 20:16:23 ET

dream well, then.

2003-11-05 20:16:53 ET

thank you... by the by, who do you think will be mayor?

2003-11-05 20:17:20 ET

you're welcome. ;)

You know, I'm afraid to even speculate. What about you?

2003-11-05 20:20:16 ET

Miller. I hope. He's not yer regular type politician... I think he has some good plans. and Tory, well... the name speaks for itself, but he worked in the cable industry before deciding to run. he's a business man, not a politician. look who we just had as mayor... a businessman.
and he's apparently quite the Green (at the very least NDP).

2003-11-05 20:21:07 ET

anyway, I'm really off ta bed...

2003-11-05 20:21:16 ET

Well, here's hoping someone gets in that will actually do some good.
*crosses her fingers*

"Tories," a then-derogatory (17th century) name applied to Irish-Catholic bandits who harassed the English in Ireland.
