  • Yeah, owning a MAME cab only leads to owning real ones. MAME just isn't good enough. It's a gateway drug.

Antonio Inoki has passed away in his home on 1 October 2022, after a prolonged battle with systematic Amyloidosis. The former pro-wrestler turned politician was 79 years old. He was from Yokohama City.

In the past 2-3 days, his blood sugar levels had dropped to potentially fatal levels and he had to continue recuperating at home. This morning, his condition took a turn for the worse, and he took his final breath before passing away.

He was born in 1943, and his father died when he was 5. When he was 13, his family had moved to Brazil for him to work in a coffee plantation. After having won a few fighting tournaments in Brazil, he had caught the eye of Rikidozan, who scouted him into wrestling. On 30 September 1960, alongside Giant Baba, he stepped into the world of pro wrestling and they made their debuts. In 1962 he had changed his name to 'Antonio Inoki'.

After having left the wrestling industry for a short and while and then returning, he married his first wife in 1971, and proceeded to form New Japan Pro Wrestling in 1972. He and Giant Baba double-handedly built the wrestling industry in Japan from that point forward, paving the way for both major domestic and international success.

In 1989, he turned into a politician and was successfully elected into Japan's House of Councillors. It was the first time that a wrestler had turned into a politician in Japan. Some of his legendary achievements include negotiating the release of 41 captive Japanese hostages in Iraq, and producing the most attended sporting event in history in North Korea to help bridge relations between North Korea and Japan.

The legendary figure had turned ill over the past two years, with complications from hip surgery that has resulted in ailing health, drastic weight loss and the necessary use of a wheelchair.

Itís very interesting to watch Coal Minerís Daughter with Sissy Spacek, as to the best of my limited knowledge it sets the blueprint for the music biopic.  Except it came out 40 years before the artist featured died.

Unprepared to deal with sudden success, falls into addiction, crawls out, beloved.  Youíve seen it 20 times before.

Still a good movie, though.

Mike Schank of American Movie has passed away at 56.

He always seemed like one of the nicest guys. Way too young to go. If you haven't seen this documentary, I highly recommend it.

Wow didn't hear about this until now. Always enjoyed his specials and wordplay. Got kinda weird with some racial stuff toward the end but he was OG comedian for sure.

Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools! I can fix it.
