07:39 pm - interests explanation meme thing If you're curious about any of the stuff in the interests section of my userinfo, ask, and I'll 'splain. Of course, if you do that, you have to post this in your journal, and blah blah blah and I forget how the rest goes, but your mother's a filthy whore, Trebek!
It was a joke - I was highly annoyed by the fact that LJ insisted on alphabetizing it to come in behind "mixed martial arts". The idea was for the interests list to read "mixed martial arts, mixed marital arts..."
(If you didn't know, mixed martial arts is a term referring to no-holds-barred combat using a style that basically consists of "what works" from any and every martial art blended together; a minimum of wing chun bullshit and a maximum of actual effectiveness against another opponent who may very well NOT use the same fighting style that you do.)
Yeah, familiar. I've read Black Belt magazine before, though it was at least... 10-15 years ago. Even the martial art I studied for 7 years, though based on a Korean art, borrows from a wide variety of other styles to fill out weaknesses.
I guess you could say "techno", but I was trying not to get into the dangers of picking some specific narrow-ass category of electronic music; sometimes it's a little weird how fanatically devotees of one group will say "techno" means this and "rave" means that and "jungle" means the other and blah, blah, blah... I was just trying to say "music that's entirely electronic/synthetic in nature" without getting into any of that shit.
