It was such a small crowd into this stuff back then that it blows me away how popular the term and subject of ninja is today. Weird, it's taken on a totally different meaning with today's youth.

I COMMIT, DAMNIT!
Edit: Might I share - I was on a plane to Boston today.. on JetBlue (which is freaking awesome for the price). Nonetheless, they have DirectTV and on one of the channels, I believe VH1, perhaps Bravo.. was a "bad ass vixen" show or some crap. This freaking moron, I swear, goes on to say that the yellow/black outfit Uma Thurman wore in Kill Bill was supposed to portray the image of a superhero, whereas anyone with a freaking brain knows, was a tribute to Bruce. Fuck off cable TV. Had to rant. Thanks.

I think that Air Rift are easier to get a hold of these days... though the unfortunately (depedning on your gender and shoe size) come only in women's sizes
Freaking nice with the toes.
