My 13-DVD Chikara order arrived today.
I got a copy 'Sordid Perils of Everyday Existence' instead of 'Brick', so SmartMark's sending the correct DVD through shortly.
First DVD I popped in was 'Cibernetico Cometh', from 2004 - and man, it is weird to see all these guys exceedingly younger than now. Like, Larry Sweeney has only 150% presence, as opposed to today's 300%. And Icarus is a technico. He's actually getting cheers. This is officially Bizarro World.
Oh, but I have a certain soft spot for Rorschach. Like the first match I ever saw of his was the gimmick Ultimate Chikara battle royale thing from 'Face With A View', and he just stole my heart when he had someone in a headvice in the corner and starts doing a freakin' muscle pose. So sad he's retired.
And Jolly Roger! The party pirate! Gee whiz I like. (I wonder if any diehard Chikara fans watched Jigsaw's unmasking promo and wondered if Jolly Roger copied the spiffy tattoos and took over the character at some point. 'Cause man, Roge' and Jigsaw have got to be twins. Far too alike to just be brothers.)
I seem to have completely turned from my love of slightly...uh, chunky boys...to the long & lanky type.
