So I'm jumping onto this whole "blogging" deal kinda late, dudes. No worries. Bet it's a big deal to all of you, anyway, having a top-notch actor like me in here, right.

So...it's been awhile, okay? Cut me some slack.

I didn't show up to watch it, but they auctioned off my girl. Not a big deal, I guess. But she was a freaking '07 model; that stuff is vintage. They don't make bikes like her anymore. I picked up a chick with that thing pretty much every time I parked with it. Sure, I'm hot as hell - I mean seriously, would you ladies out there turn down a guy like me even without the bike? - but that model...that kind of torque.

You got no idea what it was like cruising on that thing while taking out the Strawberry Clan.

Well...

Maybe you got some idea...that was a sweet season finale.

Unless you're one of those purist Steel Samurai fans that's got a thing against bikes being on the show, in which case I'd tell you to get with the times, dudes. Bikes are cool.

What ticks me off the most about it is some twink got it. Like, some prodigy hotshot prosecutor rockstar. Who buys that, anyway. I was doing commercials when I was, like, three. More than enough raw talent, right there.

Whatever.

Been craving a nice Cognac lately. Maybe a Rémy Martin or a Martell Cordon Bleu, but seeing as liquor isn't even allowed in here, I'm trying to take my mind off it. Man, I'm not even an alcoholic, but they're sucking me dry over here.

I need some chicks to distract me.

Mr. Engarde, I hope it's not too forward of me to say that I loved your work in the Nickel Samurai! Though I confess, I have only seen the dubbed version that was aired in Cohdopia.

I thought the addition of motorcycles to the franchise was exciting. Especially the flying bike!

By the way, I know the young man who bought your motorcycle. Don't worry, he's very nice and talented, and I'm sure he'll give your vehicle a good home.

Yours,
Colias Palaeno
Ambassador of Cohdopia

Thanks, dude! Always awesome talking to fans. Didn't even realize that the Nickel Samurai was such a global thing, then again, I shouldn't be surprised. Either way, I'd totally recommend watching the original - my one-liners are ace and I bet a lot of that gets lost in translation. Like, episode thirty-five, with Tin, Aluminum, and me duking it out for Sayo and I'm pulling off Bruce Lee moves here, all, "Justice is a dish best served HOT!" -

...Intense stuff.

Anyway.

Thanks for not jumping on the bandwagon of haters about the bikes, dude. I'm all for Steel, but Nickel is where it's at - not to mention that Global Studios needed to dish out some cooler effects for the sequel, and bikes just happened to be the answer. Sure, they're flashy, but c'mon, what do they expect? Rickshaws?

That so, dude? I guess that's reassuring...knowing it's not some nobody that got it. 'Cause, damn, I know I sound like a broken record here, but I mean it when I say it was such a chick magnet.

I wasn't at the auction either. My name's Ken.
Sorry you lost your bike - I don't know very much about motorcycles, but it sounds like it meant a lot to you.

Three is pretty young to start your career, but lots of performers do that, I guess. My younger brother used to watch the show you mentioned sometimes - I know it has a lot of fans. You made people happy with your work. That's a good thing.
Matt Engarde: magibontry_the_wine on May 20th, 2010 09:26 pm (UTC)
Hey, Ken, dude.
It was a nice bike, but with the kind of dough I was making, it probably isn't too much of a loss. Didn't ride her for very long, either, so I never got much of a feel for her. Not like my Ducati.

You got experience with that? Starting young seems like the way to go, but it's a drag, man. Sitting through make-up and photoshoots and stuff - bad enough putting up with it as an adult.

Thanks, dude! Not gonna lie - it sucks here, but hearing from fans always cheers me up.

So, you an athlete or something?

Mimi Miney: What?chevrolady on May 20th, 2010 09:06 pm (UTC)
Ooh, you were from the Samurai shows! My younger sister had this friend (total fangirl) with a bunch of magazine pictures of you, like, all over her room. You and this other guy. I think he was, like, from that other show--Ninja something. No wonder you looked so familiar. But bikes make almost everything better! Nice to see someone finally agrees about that.

That prosecutor guy's like, really nice though, so I think your girl's in good hands. He knows the value of such a beautiful thing. Trust me man, it's better than watching it crash into a concrete wall and burst into flames. With you on it. Or watching some smelly middle-aged fart buy it, UGH.

Glittery fop, sure. Twink? Not so much.

Nice to know where he got the bike from though. I was wondering.
Matt Engarde: huuuhtry_the_wine on May 20th, 2010 09:53 pm (UTC)
My mistake, dude.

He just...kinda looked like the type. Not that I'd know.

It's a nice bike, huh?

Sword fights on motorcycles? I may have missed the last few years' worth of pop culture, but that idea sounds more ridiculous than most.

I can empathize somewhat. They auctioned off my coffee. It took me some time to perfect those blends. I'll never see their like again.

Matt Engarde: boredtry_the_wine on May 20th, 2010 10:00 pm (UTC)
I am forever reminded of DM vs 5Ds
I guess it's over-the-top when you put it like that, but the choreography is pretty amazing, dude. You should give it a watch when you can. It won't disappoint.

Sorry, dude. I'm not much of a coffee-drinker, but I do mix plenty of my own drinks, and I make a point of not wasting them on others - they can't appreciate the work that goes into making them.

Oh man I know exactly what you mean! I'm just an actor in the Steel Samurai stage show, but they made me watch every season of every show in order all at once in less than a week!

I really liked the Nickel Samurai!
Matt Engarde: magibontry_the_wine on May 21st, 2010 12:31 am (UTC)
Stage shows? Impressive, dude!

Glad to hear! Might be some bias talking, but as much as I like Steel...

Mr. Gavin's not a twinky, pal! You better get your facts straight before running your mouth off like that. At least he'll be getting a lot more use out of it than you are.
Matt Engarde: huuuhtry_the_wine on May 21st, 2010 12:30 am (UTC)
Look, dude, I'm sorry. Just an innocent mistake.

But, hate to break it to you, whatever mileage he gets out of it, he'll never look as cool as I did riding it.

But if you need any other kind of food, invite Mr. Lang over to have a chat about the law. He'll be happy to bring anything you like...!

Why, just yesterday he brought me take out from my favourite thai chain and all I had to do was ask.

Herr Narbe, show me another seventeen year old with a law degree and a band, and I'll freely admit I'm nothing special. It doesn't take any training to act, but in my chosen fields you cannot perform without the training. Guitar chords. Legal precedence. Courtroom procedure.

And rest assured, I'm taking very good care of the bike.

Can't say I've ever watched your show, but I've heard your name more than a hand full of times. Someone once told me I bear resemblance to you.

And I hear you on the drinks, but I suppose we've got to find other ways to unwind while we're stuck here.

Mr. Crescend, I was reading over these comments, and I'm wondering, what does the term "twink" mean? It's American slang I'm not familiar with.

Oh Mr. Engarde! I'm afraid I've never been much of a fan of the Samurai series shows, but I remember your commercials from years and years ago! I insitsted to my mom that she buy me a Skip-It because of you!
