The Daily What has a great video out today!:
Lights Out: Genki Sudo and his World Order entourage perform the retired mixed martial artist’s signature faux-slow-motion “entrance dance” to a mesmerizing song off their self-titled debut, aptly titled “Mind Shift.”
Wikipedia says this about Genki Sudo:
Genki Sudo (須藤 元気 Sudō Genki, born March 8, 1978 in Kōtō, Tokyo, Japan) is a retired Japanese mixed martial artist and a kickboxer who, up until December 31, 2006 competed in the Japanese based fight organization K-1 HERO'S and before that UFC and Pancrase. He is notable for his elaborate ring entrances and unorthodox fighting style. His philosophy is "We are all one". Signature moves include the flying triangle and spinning backfist. He is also an essayist, amusician, an actor and a dancer.
I'm sure that Genki Sudo isn't too happy that Wikipedia says nothing about his music career which he started after retiring, but he has been trying very hard at it and he was a guest on a TV show I worked on in 2007 or so. He is a really nice guy and this is a very cool video.
Not bad for a guy who gets little respect in the music world... Hopefully this video will help him out in that area.
