^that's Vangelis. There's the synthesizer "victory" version of that as well.







FIFA usually selects a shitty soundtrack though. I believe Ricky Martin even performed in a WC final . They are worse than the UFC.

Pride could have changed the world. I really do think so

there was enough momentum back then for them to become a worldwide sport

and from there they would transmit traditional martial arts culture in a modern setting

they would transmit GOOD TASTE as the world would see and hear how well the shows were produced

PRIDE could have introduced a brand new aesthetic to the world of sports

the regular sporting shit was and still is very utilitarian and boring

pride had all kinds of special stuff like the bright white ring.. the screaming banshee lady.. creative pyrotechnics to majestic music

they had classy ring girls too

I also liked MAURO back in the day... he wasn't as generic and fake as most western sports announcers. I heard he is quite famous now

they didn't seem to have one this year.

Russia should have made one with BELLS.. to make a anti-nwo statement

the sporting events are getting really lame.

the pyeonchang olympics were prob the sorriest olympics ever in terms of design and effort. no effort. all utilitarian

Those who know, know! Big Grin

even though 9/11 happened there was still residual "good feelings" from the relatively peaceful and prosperous times of the 90's

in the mid 2000s PC culture was not yet that ingrained.. and you had a good mix of high tech internet along with the old analog ways

it's amazing how the vibe of 100s of millions of people can change in a matter of 6-7 years. Up until 1994-95 you could still feel the residual reaganism in the air. By late 90s through mid 2000s that was gone, but it was still a relatively stable period to be alive. The late 2000s, the great recession and the Obama years is when things got sour. Despite the economic recovery on the surface I think the mood is the same as 10 years ago.

RE: PRIDE vs UFC Vol. 1: The Music
the mood is whack nowadays

people are richer than ever.. eating the best food everyday, and it seems like no one really cares

social media has made everyone feel like their own star

so there is less interconnectedness

some good did come out of the OBAMA years as nowadays there is far less open racism compared to the 90's and early 2000's

but that could also be due to the prevalence of camera phones.

key point is at the same time imo. People will watch the same netflix series but they binge watch it in like 2 days and move on to something else.

Live sports could still provide that community feel, but they are all shit these days. Soccer is bad, MMA is bad, Football, NBA, F1, all at their lowest point.

yep.

people want BUDO. sports nowadays just focus on the winners.

Pride had the best mix of top talent, along with people who exemplified the never give up attitude.

the biggest usefulness of sports is to see HUMAN POTENTIAL and WILL POWER.. from there you get inspired in your own life

life will get more regimented going forward, esp. after the clampdown on alternative/conspiracy communities online

They are living in the moment. The cheap electronics and food are nice, but for a lot of people the future looks very uncertain. No one optimistic about what's going to happen in the next 10, 20 years. It's the vibe similar to what you get in 3rd world countries. The american dream is dead.

RE: PRIDE vs UFC Vol. 1: The Music
there is no common cause.. no one believe the democracy bullshit.

no one actually believes US is doing good for the rest of the world

if there was a common goal people would feel better.

also there is no sincerity with people. everyone has their own agenda.

even if they are purporting to do something good it's full of fuckery like charities and eco groups.

it we had sincere leaders that wanted to make the deserts green, to explore space to unify the world.. to save the animals, nature.. to invent things that actually help people instead of creep technology.. i think people would feel better.

At the time I honestly felt Pride was going to be a major force for good in the world.. then it all went down

Quote:"Semantic satiation (also semantic saturation) is a psychological phenomenon in which repetition causes a word or phrase to temporarily lose meaning for the listener, who then perceives the speech as repeated meaningless sounds."

^ This is basically what is happening across the board all over the world in all levels of life. Oversaturation.

If you get interested in something like lets say Thai boxing, you can now binge on the thousands of Thai boxing vids out there until you kill your interest for good. If you are interested in architecture and city infrastructure, you can go to google images and binge on the thousands of pics of all sorts of amazing buildings, until you no longer find them amazing but trivial (in any case architecture is appreciated not on pictures, but by walking around and generally living you life in and between buildings and parks). Same with nature - the Alps are probably amazing, but not after the wall of pics I consumed.

Things used to have a natural pace about them. If the album you wanna hear is out, you get it, sit down and listen to it, and go on trips with no need for drugs. That one videogame you've been waiting to play for months, ever since you saw 3 screenshots and a 2 paragraph description in some magazine - take your time with it, it will be a few more months before your next one. No extra cash for entertainment - no problem. Walk for 50 minutes to the nearest Borders Books and Music, go over this weeks magazines, read a few mangas, a few walkthru books on games you might never get to play, then head on up to the music section and sample the goods. Occasionally you find a surprise masterpiece of an album that you will have to buy, but only once they take it out of the sample section.

Walk out the store, get yourself some cheap garbage snack and munch on as you savor the beautiful downtown night time skyline. Walk on home for another 50 minutes as you dream of all sorts of things, and go to bed in you tiny apartment with incredibly expansive mental horizons. This is the correct way to me. I feel bad for the binge generation that can't compare this current world to the previous one.

IIRC they dropped it for like 1 event, the fans bitched and the UFC changed it back.

UFC fanbase just like that's nonsense

that's why their audience is shrinking

if you watch Sacha Cohen's Who is America.. you can see perfectly why UFC did not make mistakes with its music selection

it's simply what the avg. American that likes fightsport wants
