Random LiveJournal update of mine from November 2004:
—Yesterday I was up for about 26 hours before I fell asleep around 11:00 am. I woke up at 6:30 pm.
—Today I am going to see yet another (My Fourth in less than 1 week) Carl Theodor Dreyer film,A Day of Wrath, today on TCM at 1:00 pm.
—Man I got this really bad cold, it sucks.
—On Sunday I will probably go to see the play Anna in the Tropics at a local theatre.
I totally forgot that I went to see that play at UTPA.
you kids these days with your rapidly growing concern for the state of the world and your knowledge of important issues at increasingly younger ages despite having been told your opinions don’t matter by the adults who put you in these situations
Excuse you, what!?!?!

Growing up, I collected a lot of films and pro wrestling events. This one is one of my favorites.
A lot of people don’t realize how big women’s pro wrestling was in Japan at several points between the 1970’s to the 1990’s. Some of these all-women shows were drawing more fans than what major American pro wrestling events were doing in this same early 1990’s era. This event took place in 1993, and drew approximately 16,000 fans. That was double what WCW Starrcade ‘93 drew, which was their biggest PPV offering of the year.
The best match on this great show was also better than anything I saw in America, and possibly the world, that year. I’m talking about Akira Hokuto vs Shinobu Kandori, which was an wild, bloody, brutal brawl. It’s one of the greatest matches of all time.
Happy 37th Birthday, Manu!
