As we are accustomed, in statements Acclaim leaders say a lot and promise a lot … but practice is different.As many of you already know, Steve Elliot Altman is playing the role of ‘TheHermit’ in 9dragons (publish by Acclaim), the one who glorifies himself as the ‘ President at mind over matter & SuperGenius’. In many interviews he always have a favorite line to serve us :
I’m a student of Zen, and my belief system is predominantly Buddhist.
For those who don’t know what that means, sneak in * here *. Largely, buddhism system and religion have some rules, rules that S.E.A. just proclaim in statements only, because in reality he is something else. Seems that, after ending his meditations as zen student, he levitates directly to a party,to start meditate on the rhythm of Groove Armada as we found out from SuicideGirls Radio blog :
This week us ladies of SuicideGirls Radio were shakin’ our ass to Groove Armada, who were in town for a Sunday night gig at the Henry Fonda. (Unfortunately we were unable to make the show ’cause we were in-studio broadcasting live withGram Rabbit.) The next day the GA’s boys, Andy Cato and Tom Findlay, stopped by the SG Radio studio to talk about their new album, Black Light, which features vocals from Bryan Ferry, among others. The interview was pre-recorded on Monday and will be broadcast for the first time this Sunday. Later on Monday we headed over to the new W Hotel at Hollywood & Vine, where Groove Armada were dropping a DJ set for a select group of dance music fans. Among the crowd we bumped into our buddySteve Elliot Altman(see party pics above).
After the party, Steve Elliot Altman, spoke on that radio about his new book promotion, the book you all know, ‘The Killswitch Review ‘ ( Acclaim congratulates The Hermit for his latest Tome!, the old topic keep up artificially in General Discussion on 9d forum). If you have patience you can hear him at http://blip.tv/file/3161307
saboniukas3/ And what exactly this has to do with 9dragons
Seems that Steve, followed the Immoral Monk of Shaolin from 9dragons. In an interview by Dave Bonnewell we find out the mystery behind that monk :
The “Nine Dragons” of 9Dragons refers to the lost heroes of each of the clans. Characters like The Immoral Monk of Shaolin, who broke just about every rule of Buddhism there is (he ate meat, drank, killed ruthlessly, frequented brothels, so they say), is called a “Dragon” because he was the champion of his clan.
