Another New Look

I tweaked things out on the blog a bit today.  I hooked up a new banner, designed by Tash, and I changed some things in the sidebar.  I also changed the font to a sanserif one.  Now, a brief story about the header…

It may seem strange to some to have young Goku in my banner, but it actually makes perfect sense for a lot of reasons.  The series “Dragon Ball” is based on a story called “The Monkey King” (or “Journey to the West”.)  I heard about the Monkey King story shortly before my first psychotic episode and it ended up playing a big role in the roles I played while flipping out (riding a flying cloud is as much fun as it looks.)

Even before I found out about the Monkey King, I was a fan of Dragon Ball (like any proper japanaphile would be.)  I really liked the young Goku character.  Well, recently (about 2 weeks ago) I finished reading the entire Dragon Ball series in Chinese.  Seeing the cockiness of his character and the willingness he was to fight or display his skill made it apparent that we have much in common.

In closing, I like the parallels between Goku and I.  We both mirror the Monkey King, Goku by artist concept, me by choice.  We both keep the flame of eternal youth burning.  We both sport fly hair cuts.  And we’ve both ridden flying clouds.

We also both like competing in "World Tournaments."  I forgot to mention I confirmed my entry in the "The 1st World Cup Tai Chi Chuan Championship 2006" yesterday.  Speaking of Taiji…  A video has been uploaded to Youtube of me from when I visited Master Wang some years back.  I’m sure you’ll love it.

    The question is, did you learn how to do that? …or did you just learn how to get tossed around?

    Baby steps… I’m currently at the level where no one can toss me around. If I keep practicing I’ll be able to do that 🙂
