Japan is in dismay still from the earth-shattering (literally) 9.0 Earthquake that happened just a week and a half ago off the Northeastern coast of Japan, triggering aftershocks that would send most of us reeling, tsunamis that we got to watch wash away entire towns and cities live across the world and finally the uncertainty that comes from fires in nuclear reactors. It has already been rated about as much of a toxic disaster as 1979's Three Mile Island incident in Pennsylvania that scared Americans to death about the future of nuclear energy. So, donate if you can, to any charitable organization you feel fit.
Secondly, if you are like me, you had a few heroes in the MMA and fighting world in general. If you did, Genki Sudo was probably on the list somewhere. The guy was simply amazing on many levels; from his insane grappling ability, to the striking skills he picked up, to his incredible dance skills and intricate entrances, to his acting, to his people skills, world outlook and of course, now his music. This guy really has done everything.
Genki Sudo's message to the Japanese people and world remains as clear as ever; WE ARE ALL ONE. In his message, he talks about the darkness of these disasters eating up the light, but wants people to remain positive; "and I also believe that no matter how strong that darkness is, we can always use light to beat it back."
This same day, he released a mind-boggling, insane new music video that tops the last one for slow-motion dance moves over a real-time world. He also asks very serious questions, apparently; "Where's the world going, won't somebody tell me? Are these thoughts illusion? Are we all one? Can this world change, is this feeling an illusion?"
