For all it’s intensity and attitude, originality in MMA is scarce. You got all these fighters coming in with the same kind of tattoos and the same stupid dye jobs and the same stupid pre-fight diatribes. And then the MMA ‘media’ all takes the same news and rewrites it 50 times on 50 different sites. Trust me on this … I suffer through that many MMA websites a day digging for nuggets of humor, so I see first hand how regurgitated the scene is.
So when I see something new and interesting, I like to give it some props. Even when that something is really weird and bizarre. Today’s example is ‘MMA Stick Figures’. Here’s the description:
Stick Figure MMA: A Tribute to MMA through what I do best… Stick Figure and MSPaint Art. I have the talent of a 7 year old but I do my best, and my mother told that’s all that matters. I don’t really report breaking news, I just write reviews and draw pictures.
I don’t really know what to make of the site … it seems pretty straight forward and earnest but I don’t really understand the point. Perhaps drawing these pictures is therapeutic for the guy … it may drive away the desire to kill or tide him over between masturbation sessions. From his writing he seems to be a pretty smart individual … past the weird Microsoft Paint obsession you’d never know he probably lives in a trailer and eats squirrels for dinner.
Anyways, here’s his myspace page to boot. As I said before, I don’t really ‘get’ his shtick, but then again no one seemed to ‘get’ my Homo’s Guide to UFC74 either. So congrats to this guy for at least doing something that isn’t being done 500 times already.
