Ninjariffic! Mobile phones don’t give you cancer!

Niiiiiiice - looks like all those fears of cancer were unfounded:

Long or short-term mobile phone use is not associated with increased risk of cancer, a major study has found.

Mobile phone antennas emit electromagnetic fields that can penetrate the human brain. But a Danish team found no evidence that this was linked to an increased risk of tumours in the head or neck as had been feared.

1,000,000 MPS

Not long after his divorce, Peter Gilbert treated himself to a new sports car - a Saab 900 SPG, which stands for Special Performance Group.Seventeen years and more than 1 million miles later, Gilbert donated his car to the Wisconsin Automotive Museum. The car survived eight deer collisions, including one that punched a hole in the radiator, before it was parked for safekeeping at the museum in Hartford.

"I couldn’t kill that many deer with a gun," said Gilbert, a financial services salesman from Glendale.

He worked at that time as a programmer in one of the dot coms and had some free time which usualy he spent flying Cessna 172SP plane around NYC.

We have this photos today.

Just when he took off he spotted a smoke coming from WTC towers. He was very surprised and headed in that direction

Check Box Artist: DStruction

where are you from?

I’m from Massachusetts.

how did music influence your life?

Well, growing up, my mother always had a variety of music playing in the house. Lots of Stevie Wonder, Sade, Anita Baker, but also **** like Kenny G, Genesis, Billy Joel and Eric Clapton. My older brother got me into hip hop and rap with groups like Stetsasonic, NWA, Boogie Down Productions, and Run DMC.

how do you see music’s influence on the daily citizen?

Well, music is everywhere, even if we don’t realize it. Most people dont take the time to listen to **** that they aren’t forced to listen to, and that’s a shame. For the daily citizen, the average joe, music is just something to assist in getting through the day. For me though, it is much more than that. It’s life to me, without music, you might as well consider me dead.

what gear do you use to produce?

My mind is the best piece of gear I use, but I also use a few different MPC models, mostly the 2000. I also use my vinyl collection, which is over 2000 pieces now. It would be a lot more than that, but they take up a lot of space! I also use a Roland vs890 multitracker, a few keyboards every now and then, guitars, live drums, and other instruments, like the kalimba and didgeridoo.

how do you perceive the equipment that you use?

I’m used to the the MPC, but honestly it’s not the gear its the ear. I think I can make good music with anything. haha, back in high school I made some of the freshest beats just banging on different parts of the desk.

who should like your music?

Everyone can find a track they like. That’s the thing, my music suffers from bipolar disorder, hence my record label’s name, Bi-Polar Inc. Tonight I might make some trippy experimental **** the college kids might like, then tomorrow I’ll switch it up and do some commercial **** for the broads to shake some ass to. I like broads shaking ass so it’s fun to make music for that. The day after that I might **** with some heavy metal ****.

where can people catch you performing live?

Well, every Saturday I DJ at Stevie B’s in Onset MA. I’m not a real DJ I admit that but I’m a good DJ, meaning I keep the dance floor packed and your girlfriends all like to come see me do my thing, and shake those ****ies. January 13th at the same spot Stevie B’s in Onset, we are doing a Bi-Polar Inc show. We took a break from the live shows for a few months to focus on new material. Also, Febuary 17th at KC’s Tap in Pawtucket Rhode Island, we are gonna do the damn thing. So come check us out! Also, I do Hoodstock every summer.

myninjaplease turns 1000!

We’re 1000 posts old, my ninjas, but, how old is that in dog-posts?
Anyway… Congrats to us.

1000 post at mnp

Will the blogosphere ever be the same? Na. Is mnp even in the blogosphere? Hell naw!

As you can see we changed the grid of madness again. Just a quick rundown: the bottom two rows in that there crazy grid are all the categories here on myninjaplease. At any time you can click on the ninja and be taken to the main page. The rest of the grid is empty right now, as we are reorganizing or smattering of random posts (so stop with the hate mail, ya ninjas). [Ed: you might have to clear your browser cache to see the changes]

Things here tend to relate whether or not anybody likes it because of our sequencing- we will be working on getting posts a,b,c from past, present and future more integrated in the next few weeks. You know its not even about the numbers cause I’m pretty sure there’s something for everybody- this is just another post.

It’s amazing how we’ve grown over the last five months and we’d like to thank everybody and stuff. A bunch of ninja-lovers out here. OK, enough of that, let’s get to what you really want. The content.

Don’t forget to send any and all correspondence to suggest@myninjaplease.com

Our first story is courtesy of a regular contributor of ours, Pheezatron. Followed by a kookiecrumbles cinema extravaganza. Some architecture from orangemenace and a writeup of our friend and ninja Jason Krugman.

Bruce Lee gets own Theme Park!

bruce-lee.jpg

A Bruce Lee-themed park is to be built at the late kung-fu star’s ancestral home in China, the president of his Hong Kong fan club has said.

The park will feature a statue of Lee - who died 34 years ago - as well as a memorial hall and martial arts academy.

Newspaper reports in China have put the estimated cost of the park at 200 million Chinese Yuan (A£13m).

But fan club chairman Wong Yiu-keung told The Associated Press he was not sure who is funding the planned park.

Well that could be a little problem, you know, the funds and stuff. Still, in all, we’re glad to see one of the grand ninjas of all time get his own theme park. He’s no Bruce Leroy, but that’s OK. Those are big shoes to fill.

A ceremony to mark the laying of foundations at the park in Shunde, near Hong Kong, was held on Sunday, attended by Lee’s younger brother Robert and actress Betty Ting Pei.

Lee was born in the US but first shot to fame in Hong Kong, where he had moved as a child.

His most famous films include Fist of Fury, Enter the Dragon and Game of Death.

He died aged 32 in July 1973 from a cerebral edema - a swelling of the brain.

A statue of Lee was unveiled in Hong Kong last year on what would have been his 65th birthday.

Phare: Paris’ New Eco-Tower

paris1.jpg

This new ‘eco-tower’, ‘Phare‘ in ParisLa Defense district has been designed by Thom Mayne [previously of Morphosis, for y’all ninjas in the know], which will actually rival the Eiffel Tower in height.

"There’s a fluidity, a sensuousness, a softness to the form as it reaches to the sky," he said, describing the asymmetric twist of the building, which swells out over an elevated lobby in the lower portion before tapering off to a thicket of wind turbines on the roof. Mayne says it will be "a prototype for a green building" with a wind farm generating its own heating and cooling for five months of the year and a movable "double skin" to cut the heat from direct sunlight through the windows.’

Jason Krugman - Ninja in our Sidebar

Well. there’s a few things we can say about Jason. For one, we actually know this dude. His art is dope, his attitude is crucial and we can vouch. What else can we say about the man? His website is nascent (and ill), it’s about to blow up… And did we mention his art was dope?

jkrugs.JPG

What’s cool about his art, as you can partially see from the gallery on his "journals" page, is that he experiments with a lot of mixed media. His art has the quality of being raw and fresh out of a book. That’s why the journals format works so well on his page, because his art already gives you the feeling of being inside of (as opposed to outside) the artist’s life and train of thought. A lot of the stuff literally jumps off the page at you. I’ve seen some of his art in person and, needless to say, I was impressed.

jkrugs2.JPG

I could obviously say a lot more but, a picture is worth a thousand words. Go check out the man’s site, going forth with the knowledge that this is not the last you’ll hear about him from us.

This has been a thousandth post extravaganza. We’ll see you at 2000!

killah bees on a swarm…

bee.JPG

No, this actually has nothing to do with the Wu. Sorry to tease you like that.]

Aparently, the department of homeland [in]security is at it again, cookin’ up the ill ideas to keep us safe. Next on the agenda? Finish training bees, yes BEES, to sniff out bombs. Yep, you heard it right folks.

Next we’ll be using fireflies during blackouts [if that actually happens, I better get some credit for calling it].
