So Weird…

November 30, 2011

My life feels a little like a plot from the Disney Channel original program So Weird right now.  I thought of the idea of a professional wrestling match for to be the theme of my Kenan and Kel episode because it’s the kind of ridiculous thing that the show is usually made up of but hasn’t been included in the show in the past.  Since each episode of the show ends in a plan that Kenan has come up with backfiring on the two main characters, I had to find some way to get them into the ring.  My idea was for Kenan to read an ad in the back of a comic book promising proficiency in some kind of martial art in just one day.  Kenan would then put Kel through the class and send him to fight for the title and a cash reward.

But what kind of martial art could anyone possibly learn in one day.  It is supposed to be ridiculous but it still had to be fathomable.  So I decided to use a type of martial art that I had heard of called Dim Mak, which claims to give its practitioners the ability to manipulate pressure points in a way that renders their opponents unable to fight back.  I looked up Dim Mak by surfing the World  Wide Web and the first thing that I found was this guy named Count Dante who advertised Dim Mak lessons in comic books. Just like in my idea.  Isn’t that just crazy?


Well I kept reading into it and it turns out that Count Dante is now dead and there is this other guy who is a professional wrestler who wrestles under the name Count Dante.  Isn’t that just so weird?



Okay, and there’s this other guy who is named Ashida Kim who rights these ninja books that I read when I was younger and look at what he wrote to the Professional wrestler wrestling under Count Dante’s name:

“Most Honorable Count: So very good to find your webpage and know that you are alive and well. Gee! We all thought you were dead, Ha! Of course, you are not the original Count Dante, the one I met in 1968 in Chicago, but, since we of the Black Dragon Fighting Society do strive to carry on his tradition, we are honored that you have chosen the paths of professional wrestling and music and wish you the best of luck in both of these endeavors. As Grandmaster, I have some other wrestling contacts in South Africa and Australia I could place at your disposal. We have put on several Kick-Punch-Throw, win by Pin-Submission- or Knockout, bouts here and overseas. Or, perhaps there are some other projects we might find to be mutually agreeable. If I may be of any service, please do not hesitate to ask. I remain, Ashida Kim, the NINJA.” (
And get this: when I was a kid, I had a dream that I met Ashida Kim and he was white.   Several years later, I came across some stuff about him on the internet and it turns out that he is white and that Ashida Kim is just a pseudonym and that he’s kind of a fraud.
Does this all mean that I have some kind of super-mental capabilities?  Well, I think to go that far would be a little silly, but yes, I definitely do, without a question.
