    INDEX of Bloodgroove

    SFI is proud to present it's own little pocket-universe of humor: the comic strip archive of "BLOODGROOVE"!

    The comic strip was originally called "Lo Fat" but the character Bloodgroove totally stole the show from the very beginning. Perhaps Master Lo will one day return.

    Characters

    Bloodgroove - A man of the Seventies, he is a lone cultural warrior in a never-ending journey to seek self-improvement through attaining or obtaining the perfect sword! He also believes in studying various aspects of all the martial arts and wears a trademark purple suit with a big "Peace" emblem around his neck. He is President and Founder of International Brotherhood of the Groove!

    Real King - Is this the real "King" returned from the dead? Did Elvis Presley really die? Is this the man, the myth, the legend, the wonder himself? Find out, as he brings an inexhaustable wealth of knowledge and experience in the secretive and deadly arts of the ninja!

    Half Groove - The young and impressionable nephew of Bloodgroove, he is a young prodigy of computer science and technology, but desires to become a world class fighting martial artist like his infamous Uncle!

    bloodgrove

    Isnt it true or a myth that the bloodgroove was created so when you pull a sword out of a body it wouldnt get stuck as easily due to stop the vacume which might keep the sword in the body or make it harder to pull the sword out

    Bloodgroove

    Its for making the sword lighter.
    John Stuart Mill once penned, "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

    In addition to the above, the fuller also ads a bit of strength to the blade.

    (think - bending a flat bar versus bending a round pipe...)
    "The way to experience ultimate happiness is to let go of all worries and regrets, and to know that being
    happy is the most satisfying of life's feelings. Reflect back on all the progress in your life and allow the
    positive, creative and joyous thoughts to outshine and overwhelm any sorrow or grief that may linger in the
    recesses of your mind. Knowing that disease and disaster are natural parts of life is the key to overcoming
    adversity with a calm and happy spirit. Happiness is waiting there in front of you. Only you can decide
    whether or not you choose to experience it. Take this to heart!"

    Thumbs up *sigh*

    Well... i would laugh at this, if, I didn't live with the real Bloodgroove... My brother acts like this... in fact currently he has me trying to track down a "real" ninja sword... and about five miniutes ago he was out back with his " 28 inches of 440 stainless steel" trying to kill bottles. First it is dull so he is basically hitting a bottle with a club and he has never had proper instruction AT ALL. Then to show me how strong the blade is he was banging the tip on the ground anf hitting it lightly with a hammer. Meanwhile i was behind two sheets of reinforced glass and a concrete pillar.

    This is why i want instruction before i swing a sword and i will only buy truly functional swords. So basically the type of attitude that was praised for me having on the forum is just me trying to not be like my brother. God it feels good to rip on my brother where he will never find(a sword forum with an academic tone and with real martial artist who train).

    The new guy
    Joe

    P.S. he does call a fuller a bloodgrove and does think it is for running blood of the blade and such.
    Her: Aww you are moving?

    Me: Yeah but dont worry i will send you things from arizona

    Her: Thanks

    Me: Like snakes

    Her: HELL NO!!!

    Me: Not whole ones

    Her: EWWW!!!

    Me: How about knives?

    Her: Sure my parents would love that

    Me: Umm... how about...Puppies?

    He: Awwww

    Me: ... Baked in a cake

    Her: *you have now been blocked*

    Hey Adrian, how 'bout a new character? A warrior, a braw an' hardy son of Scotland who could emit balls of lightning from. . .well, you get the idea.

    And with an appropriately heroic name. Such as, perhaps. . .(drumroll). . .

    wait for it. . .

    Brawfart!!
    'S coma leam, 's coma leam cogadh no sith,
    Marbhar 'sa cogadh, no crochar 'san t-sith mi.


    It's all the same to me war or peace,
    I'm killed in the war or hung during peace.

    Dale,

    The word "fart" is in "Brawfart." Is that intentional?

    Funny comic, but is it picking on Angus Trim, or what? I don't get those parts.

    Slide Viewer Request

    Any chance you could add a slide viewer for all the comic strips so I can peruse them more efficiently? Something along the lines of PennyArcade?

    Best Regards,
    Jason

    We'll see... we have some new technical help and expertise recently join us, but the priority will be adding functionality to SFI.

    Bloodgroove #15 just added (retroactively) but is drawn literally today!

    We need more on the impact of the sword on the sauce...

    Or the bouillabaisse.
