Bully messes with karate champ. [video]

The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:

The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.

The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.

This is a hero.

Bringing this back.

Irma (short film)

Irma Gonzalez is an old ‘luchadora’ (female wrestler) who bears the marks of a life spent battling in the ring, performing daredevil moves. Every day she goes to the gym to rehearse the moves that made her a star. Children watch her curiously. Somewhere in the distance, a song plays: Irma was once a singer, too. In her memory, grainy images of old television clips flicker. Shot in Mexico City, the film is a tender portrait of the multi-talented luchadora and an unusual meditation on athleticism and aging.

Interview with director of Irma, Charles Fairbanks.

Cee-Lo’s Lady Killer album was a phenomenal modern soul album when it dropped almost 4 years ago.  I always knew Cee-lo could sing, but on this album he really showed his gospel and soul chops throughout this album on songs like "Fool for You" (I actually like the version with Philip Bailey best), "No Ones Gonna Love You", and "Satisfied".  The album was such a unique blend of soul and pop, that made it so fun to listen to.  

On the song “Old Fashioned” Cee-Lo really gets into some deep rooted soul on a song that borrows from 60s soul man Joe Simon’s song "Trouble in My Home".  Cee-Lo gets deep, sounding in a way I’ve never heard him sound before.  

I’ve been waiting on a follow up to this album, I’m not sure if he’s working on anything right now. I know he’s on tour, but I missed him while he was in Dallas a few weeks ago while he was with Lionel Richie, but I may have a chance in the next few months since he’s performing at one of the casino’s in Oklahoma. 

Love this album & I agree that the original “Fool for You” was better than Melanie Fiona’s friend.
