I Googled "Brizdaz" once just out of curiousity/boredom one night and found a screen shot of my review on someone's blog who went by the name of King Uke and who sounded royally pissed at my review.
Tokyo Zombie (2008)
So, I tip-toed over to his blog to see just how pissed he was.
Then I saw this photo -
Holy S#!+ !, it was the guy who drew that crap.
(just pulling your chain KU;-)
I even bet myself that he was probably missing a little finger as well.
But then I thought, hang on...how can this guy play a ukulele with a little finger missing?
So it could have been someone like this guy who is showing us that he is not a paid up member of the Yakuza, by flashing his intact pinkies about, or showing me how he was going to take my eyes out from criticizing one of his favourite comic books.
(it's OK KU, I know this guy is really Hawaiian, but it's hard to find pics of Kiwi uke players)
Turns out he was pretty cool about my criticism and probably wasn't going to kill me at all, because I found this -
"Update 7-Jul-2011: I saw this review on Amazon just now and felt I had to share it with you. Had me chuckling!
Thanks Brizdaz... you've made my day!
Just drop me a line if you'd like to do a post or two for the Ukulele Blog...
I'd love to hear from you!"
I thought this could be a trap and I had better just tip-toe out of his blog while I still have some brains left.
|"You're just mad cuz..."Now I see what attracts Kiwis to this comic;-)|
Tokyo Zombie (2005)
It turns out that he saw the movie version first and read the comic later, while I read the comic first and have only seen half of the movie so far...I found it on You Tube, dubbed in the English language.
That Movie Book: Awesome, Weird and Wonderful Flicks for Every Weekend of Your Year
There is a section on zombies -
And in that section on zombies Marc had to go and put this in his book -
So, with KU biting one ear and Marc biting the other, I thought I had better track this down and watch it.
I've got to say King that so far I'm actually enjoying this big pile of black Fuji.
I may even buy a copy on DVD, just as a motivator to remind me that this is the sort of stuff I used to draw in maths class back in school ;-)
You can catch Marc's weekly movie reviews here, on the JJJ website,
Update: 9 Oct, 2012.
King Uke has sent me a picture of his true identity
(I had the impression he was taller when I saw him performing with the Von Ukes in his last video -
but obviously the other band members must be extra tiny Timish ;-)
|The real King Uke? Would explain the uke fetish I guess?|
Although, maybe this was a shot he took at his initiation ceremony, just before he bit it off?!
He also sent me two links to this picture -
Where's the link of you and your son using the medium of Lego?
Or are you just pulling my Lego?-)
