Sneakers! I love that movie! I especially love the part where the blind guy gets Robert Redford's character to describe the sounds and they find the place that way.
(And what's Tang Soo Du? Should I be scared?)

kirsten said...

i love the sneakers movie too!! thanks for participating, by the way. ;o)

and what the heck, black belt girl? i'm glad we're friends because i might be frightened otherwise. :o)

Wow...we totally have a Sneakers following going on here. You know, that was the first con/spy movie that I watched and I've loved them ever since.

The short version is that Tang Soo Do is Tae Kwon Do without the politics. When Japan occupied Korea, they combined traditional Korean martial arts with Japanese ones and called it Tang Soo Do, which is the literal translation of "Karate Do" (Japan's martial arts). When the Japanese left Korea, the Koreans renamed the art Tae Kwon Do. However, it has come over the US under both names.

The arts are slightly different, at least in feeling. Tang Soo Do tends to be more meditative and people who study it less into tournaments and that sort of thing, while Tae Kwon Do schools tend to be pretty competitive.

A CSI buff? I just said something on Kirsten's blog about that too. I love CSI. I like all of them (NY? so-so) I love Las Vegas the best though.

You have a black belt? Now that is funny. I don't want to run into you down a dark alley.


Christianne said...

The blowing alley?? What's that?

Sarah said...

tammy--I dunno if I count as a CSI buff...I haven't watched it very much. And yup...I have a black belt...but I'm not very dangerous unless you're attacking me ;)

Christianne--bowling alley (not "blowing ;) ). It was the room I lived in in Oxford...basically a converted closet, long and narrow...one of the worst rooms in the house, actually, but we had fun there.

Katie said...

That's one of my favorite parts in "Sneakers" too! I always think of it when I'm driving on an overpass or some patch of the freeway that is especially loud or seam-y.

I'm glad we're still friends :)

Love, k

Second degree black belt? So glad you're my friend... : )

The Poet's Pen said...

just dropping by to say hi to the Kung fu bad ass! :) I WILL find creative ways to harass you about that now.

Terri said...
