go the distance


Tonight I watched Rocky for the first time ever.
OMG, maybe I'm an idiot but I think this is one of my favorite movies ever.

What you need to do is:
Watch Rocky. Watch the training sequence twice.
Download "Gonna Fly Now" and Eye of the Tiger" (which I can't really remember being played in the movie?!)
Draw.

GO THE DISTANCE. 15 ROUNDS!

"Eye of the Tiger" is from Rocky III, when Rocky has to beat Clubber Lang (Mr. T) and is running up and down the beach with Apollo Creed as his TRAINER (!?!)

Yeah, I agree Robyn, it's a very inspirational/motivational movie (or SERIES of movies). People always make fun of it, but it won best picture in 1977! And it's a really incredible story of how Stalone wrote it and DEMANDED to be in the picture, etc. etc.

"their" mom? No actually, I live in New York City, about 3,000 miles from where I grew up (where my MOM lives, thanks) But I do make Comics and if that makes me a geek, I'll PROUDLY be a geek!

Wow, it takes a brave anonymous to mess with comics geeks who're all pumped up on Rocky! Especially "thoose" geeks...

somehow these things always turn into arguments.

anyway, yeah, I love rocky. i watched 3 and 4 last night!
well, this morning at 3am ish.

and let's just say that if i went on mastermind, my specialised subject would be the rocky films.

n just 'cause someone knows a lot about something doesn't make them a geek, just means they have interests other than insulting people ::)
