    I'm pretty savvy, actually for my age.

    Sorry, am I having a stroke?

    I will tell you a story that has a moral to it. Recently, I purchased some software with the kind support of all that have supported. I have been using Windows Movie Maker ever since I started. It's very simple and straightforward software that served me well. Meanwhile, my computer of 12 years died so I got a new one. My new software (Wondershare Filmora, if you must know) was tucked somewhere in the computer and me being an old fart stuck in his old ways, did nothing. till last night. Erev chag (Holiday night) is usually boring and this holiday, Shavuot, is exceptionally boring where one essentially eats a lot of cheese cake to commemorate the harvest etc.. whatever.. I decided to take a peek at the software. I peeked, I said OK, and went to sleep. Today's video was being edited with my old reliable software when suddenly it stopped working. Never happened to me in 7 years. It just stopped, halfway through the bouts. No editing. Dead. I did not panic (OK, I panicked to a certain extent..), opened the new software and proceeded to gingerly start editing. It took me twice the time, but I did it. Uploaded, but, well, a few glaring mistakes which have nothing to do with getting the hang of things-just dumb wrong copy/pastes that we have all come to love and admire. What's the point of this post? I'm uploading a corrected PROPER video so please be patient before pointing out the %$%$%^^& errors. Thank you and happy Shavuot. PS- My old software is now working perfectly again. I did nothing. It just works.

  8. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    "If my father cries, I will probably laugh.." he also said later. During his first interview after beating Hakuhou, he suddenly said: "I've got to report to my mom-can I go now??" and left..

    Maybe I'm naive but I think his back is acting up again. I don't believe anyone can go from totally dominant to kitten in 24 hours without a physical reason. It's happened before. He will suddenly become awesome again, you'll see.

    But has learned to fall back on something else once it fails.
  12. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    It has nothing to do with his opponents. He had been struggling against almost everyone lately but this basho the content is way better- maybe his physical condition is somewhat better. We'll see how he does against the top guys, when and if he faces them at M5.
  13. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    After beating Hakuhou yesterday, Abi phoned his mother. She started to cry, which made him cry. "I told her I will call her later since we weren't able to have a real conversation.." he said. He called her a few hours later and she was still crying.. Today during the interview after he beat Goueidou he was asked if he was going to call her again today. "I'll call my father.." he answered. "But what about your mother?" asked the tactful interviewer. "She'll be right there with him, I guess.." he answered.
  14. Takanohana used the mike to explain two mono-iis, for the first time since returning to shinpan duties. In Jonidan, there was a monoii in the Shinzan- Daishoukou match. "This discussion decided it was gumbaidori, the east person won the match," he said, very shortly and concisely, probably because it's been a while since he used the mike. Then there was a monoii in the Ishihara-Terumichi bout. "The gunbai pointed to the west rikishi, but the east rikishi won.." was all he said. "How about an explanation on why the decision was overturned??" shouted a heckler, very loudly. "I did it myyyyyyyy waaaaaaayy.."

    Yes, so I have been told.. But it was during Hakuhou's Black Basho so I guess I deleted it mentally.

  19. Latest kabu-babu changes

    Sekinoto Oyakata, the former Asanoshou, has switched to the Oshiogawa name.
  20. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    The "slap and grab" and the "forearm in your face" are not considered the same. The slap has been given the green light a few days ago by Ounomatsu chief judge, who specifically warned against the use of the fore-arm/elbow. YDC chairman Col. Sanders, OTOH, does not think the slap and grab is befitting of a Yokozuna.
  21. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Suddenly, with Takanohana and Furiwake (ex-Takamisakari) and 6 others joining the judging department, the shinpan (Men in Black) are becoming sexy. Suddenly, when the shinpan are announced laconically as they have been for many years, the audience cheers. Something that has never happened before. "We have some very popular ex-rikishi on the roster, and the crowd seems to be pleased, showing their feelings by clapping and oooing...." said Hakkaku Oyakata, who seems to be quite pleased himself. The judging roster now includes yusho winners like Takanohana, Tamanoi(ex-Tochiazuma), Nishikigi (ex-Mitoizumi), Tomozuna (ex-Kyokutenhou), ex-KaioU, ex- Chiyotaikai, ex-Dejima, among others.and other popular guys like ex-Musouyama, ex-Miyabiyama and ex-Wakanosato.
  22. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    The YDC were there in full force yesterday. So what does Hakuhou do? Yes, he goes for the slap and grab. "I guess his power has declined. He doesn't have the composure to do Yokozuna-like 'receiving' sumo. That is the truth.." said chairman Kitamura.

    And now you did..
  24. Yokozuna Kisenosato trained at home today with Takayasu, but they stopped after 4 bouts after Takayasu complained of a right shoulder pain. Kisenosato was leading 4-0 at that time, using his favorite left hand grip. "I'm feeling good. I was able to move my body well during the jungyo, and the same goes for today.." he said. Later in the afternoon, at the KKan, the rijikai and a special function were held. In conjunction with a live performance of the new Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, the rikishi were holding babies and people were taking pictures. The plan was to show that classical music relaxes babies. Didn't work for Kisenosato, though. Every baby he held immediately started wailing. "Even after doing this so many times, I can't get used to it.. " he mumbled, smiling wryly. Sergeant O'Reilly:
