Re: Steven Seagal...
That interview was horrible. He came across as inarticulate and does wonders for the image of aikidoka. Such wonderful statements: "Gatemouth never said anything nice about nobody, but what a great player. I'm the only one he was nice to. He would show me techniques, which he didn't do for anybody." and another gem: ". . .but I don't think I've ever played in Seattle. I don't have any memory of it, at least, but I might have been drunk."
I noticed in some of his later movies he has taken on a street style of talk. Is this an effort at trying to be hip?
