    Just re-watched the scene. He never actually refers to the sword specifically as a 'katana'. I'm really sorry - I could have sworn that he did...

    SS: This sword is the 1000 year old one.
    JLC: Is this your most prized possession, Steven, in terms of swords?
    SS: Yeah, this is right up in there...

    SS: Okay, this one... is a museum piece - and this piece could be worth upwards of $1million, you know, because it's so rare...

    SS: Boy, a 1000 year old sword, man...
    JLC: Yeah.
    SS: And it looks as though it was made yesterday, doesn't it?
    JLC: Yeah, it does - it looks brand new.

    SS: The sword is the backbone - the foundation, of all martial arts.

    You are very correct, sir.
    If I may interject a comment regarding the Katana... The swords are often divided by age: jokoto ("ancient swords") - 795 koto ("old swords") 795 - 1596 shinto ("new swords") 1596 - 1624 shinshinto ("new new swords") 1624 - 1876 gendaito ("contemporary swords") 1876-1953 shinshakuto ("modern swords") 1953 - ? Oldest swords on record in Japan are the two that were sent as a present to queen Himeko from China during Wei-dynasty in 240 a.d. In 280 a.d. many more iron swords were imported from China to Japan. Katana is the most famous Japanese samurai sword.

    Dunno, really. Different things are worth different things (all boils down to what someone would be willing to pay for it) - but did they even have katanas in Japan 1000 years ago?

    My favourite part was when he was talking about needing both testicles, because without your balls slapping in behind your cock, you weren't doing the lady a proper service.

    Watching Above the Law all those years ago, I never imagined he'd be on British TV explaining that.

    That would be good for me. The stink of Tuna has cats all over mine!

    Just been re-watching it.

    He's got a new drink coming out. One that makes your dick big and hard. So hard that even a cat couldn't scratch it.

    Can't believe I'd forgotten about that. I'm sold.

    Re: Seagal giving JLC the runaround at first... I wouldn't like to say whether that was deliberate/aimed at JLC or not.

    IIRC, more than one person who's worked with Seagal over the years has mentioned that he's got a habit of just wandering off set and going back to his trailer whenever he feels like it. Pisses people off, but there's nothing they can do about it.

    In the Bedroom, he had a number of Guns secreted and pull out a Automatic Rifle coupled with a 100 Round Magazine. What is he expecting??
    Mafia guys, coming to 'whack' him, I expect. He may have a somewhat valid concern. Or at least understandable concerns.

    Bulletproof SUV too.

    Dunno, really. Different things are worth different things (all boils down to what someone would be willing to pay for it) - but did they even have katanas in Japan 1000 years ago?


    Also - totally unsurprised that Seagal's latest wife is young and AZN. Guy has 7 kids altogether, apparently.

    btw, It's on YouTube here, but I strongly suspect that no-one outside of the UK will be able to watch it...

    It was desperate stuff really. Desperate in this sense means Awful. Odacon may vouch/correct me. Anyway....it was some 22 mins into the 1 hour programme (less Commercial Breaks) before we got his Aikido-ness. That give you a clue?

    Collins went to Carlson Gracie's in Hammersmith, London and got Triangled. Relevance? None. He eventually met up with Seagal on Set in Vancouver and got a bit of runaround. This was deliberate and designed to unsettle him and make him realise that Seagal was the Attraction/The Boss. Stephen was dressed in Black - as ever these days - and drove a large Black SUV. Oddly, I thought Seagal looked to be wearing a Syrup, and Irish. Cockney rhyming slang - Wig. Well, a Piece He looked a bit like an old British Wrestler, Mick McManus. I could be wrong - it's just that in his slimmer days when he looked the Dogs Bollocks, his hair line looked to be distinctly receding...ah well.

    He realised Collins was there to Worship and he was allowed to go to Seagal's new home in Arizona. He has only had it 2 weeks but looked designed In. It is a stunning place and enviable. Marvellous Place and Vista. Collins was met by a Bodyguard...

    Steve was still dressed in Black and was playing things low-key. He took Collins to Sheriff Joe Arpaio...but so what? Seagal had an AR15 style Rifle laying against a Wall - so when his Baby starts to crawl, it should be point of concern. In the Bedroom, he had a number of Guns secreted and pull out a Automatic Rifle coupled with a 100 Round Magazine. What is he expecting??

    I might have written last night but it was poor so I went to Bed.

    If it's available on Cable where you are, don't wait up.

    PS When Seagal was originally on Collins' TV prog, Collins was awed claiming to be 6ft 3ins yet Seagal - 6ft 4ins - towered over him, prompting Collins to exclaim "...How Tall are you?!" Yeah, well, so what?

    Toodlepip! (Short, Bald, Specky...)

    That would be assuming Steven sets the pace, instead of JLC. Steven's business model seems to be:

    1. Wrist Grab.
    2. Squint, Eastwood style.
    3. ?????
    4. Profit!

    Who knew ????? was a teep to the chin?
    Anderson Silva?


    Watched the programme, btw. Wasn't really all that illuminating, TBH.

    Yes, Seagal does have a big fuck-off gun in his bedroom (hidden - wanted camera pointed away while he pulled it out, so as not to spoil his strategy).

    Also has a 1000-year-old aikikatana worth $1million.
    And a guitar (flying V) worth $1million.
    Says that choosing between them would be like choosing between his left and right ball.

    Oh, and he beat the shit out of a drunk in his dojo in Japan after he mistook the guy for someone who wanted a death match with him.
