Legendary scene at the end with Steve Vai and the Karate Kid mixing it up, providing one of the most often played "may I help you" riffs still used in guitar shops today :lol:

In fact, Youtube has the duel in it's entirity right here!


Yes Sammi, thats the film. Classic. Your clip has all the talkie bits edited out, but its still a great clip. probabaly should of also said you need DivX to run the film....

Echoes all above - loved that film and the duel is one thing that further encouraged me to pick up guitar playing!
Stand straight, look me in the eye and say goodbye!

Out in Leeds last night to continue fridays birthday celebrations, was stupidly fun! ran around every dancefloor like a big kid. In fact I think I ran around them more than I danced on them. Maybe the rainbow drops I ate made me hyper (not the shots and double whiskeys nooo..)

Looking forward to going to fight at berkeley castle on sunday.

Also my Brother, Sister in law, nephew and niece are coming along. I haven't seen them in ages so that'll be nice.

My niece will bawl her eyes out at the big scarey man with the sword (me) as usual but my nephew will love it!!!

Plus (weather permotting) there will be jousting which I've never gotten around to seeing before.

Should be a good (if painfull) day out!!


:D :D :D :D :D

Today, at work, a couple I was serving appeared to have a foreign accent when speaking English. I looked at the guy's wallet and saw it said 'NL', which means Netherlands. So on their way out I called 'Tot ziens' after them, which is Dutch for 'goodbye'. They loved it. I bet they don't hear much Dutch in the UK. :)
