"The Anna Avenger"

align boxANNA, TX Governments are known to sponsor things like Fine Arts, Symphonies, and other Nation-rallying pursuits of excellence. Things which are either too expensive, or too disinteresting to maintain through corporate sponsorships - and lets face it, some of our governments choices of programs to sponsor are either really, really long-term investments or...writeoffs. And I can guarantee that the proposed "Anna Avenger" falls somewhere in between!

I'm planning to approach first the Economic Development Corporation and then the City Council to apply for sponsorship of drax0r for purpose of bringing goods and services (and potential tourist dollars) to Anna, Texas by making headlines with the first City sponsored mixed-martial arts fighter, putting our little slice of heaven right on the map!

Superheroes are made - not born. Allow me to present to you, THE ANNA AVENGER!

The Anna Avenger is wrapping up his first month of training in building up the stamina required to compete in mixed-martial arts cage fighting. This marvelous machine of a man already has both the strength, and flexibility needed for competition having spent his youth in a variety of aggressive sports meant for just that purpose, such as wrestling and lacrosse.

But a decade spent as a highly-sought top-notch IT Professional has lessened his ability to project his super-strength and amazing bendy nature - think Zangief + Dhalsim - for any sustained duration. So he's been training something fierce these last four weeks, mind & body; body & mind, to build back the stamina to compete in any arena.

"We're proud to sponsor The Anna Avenger" I hope to one day hear the Mayor say, as we rally around one of the last true superheroes of this great nation. Please join me in support of drax0r as we move forward in this endeavor, for you shall be greatly rewarded in the afterlife.

The Anna Avenger!

It's at times like these that I wonder whether magenta is flattering to the complexion.

I think I had a cocktail like that once.

These colors are representative of the Anna Coyotes and are therefore sacred to Anna, and The Anna Avenger!

PURPLE is the color of choice in Anna. NOT Magenta. There is a difference

Everyone's a critic...

Hex codes or it didn't happen! There are 16,700,000 (sixteen point seven million) colors I'm dealing with here. That's a lot.

But I'm always thankful for the assistance in accuracy! Here's a mod of The Anna Avenger for your consideration:


Please let me know which direction you think it should go. While its difficult for me to keep Photoshop properly calibrated, I did notice once I got to work that my monitor there (which has a much higher contrast ratio than the widescreen I use at home) did indeed veer closer to the red spectrum than to the blue, much to my chagrin, as the GIMP is a poor, poor substitute for on-the-fly corrections of this magnitude. Thanks!

Yannow what? It looks dark purple on my monitor, but still magenta on my wife's.


Maybe I need to adjust the gamma correction on my video card?

If we get the Exhibition Fight off the ground, may I sign you up for a tussle? You have a choice of battling fresh, out-of-the-box early drax0r, or slightly beaten and bruised, later-in-the-day drax0r.

schpydurx has requested early drax0r.

Sure! Can I use chilled slabs of butter as my weapon?

Out in the West Texas town of El Paso...

We have burgeoning Lucha scene. Perhaps this could be a way for one to hone his skills?

Perhaps. Sometimes a man...wears stretchy-pants.

Dude, do you know any other line in the movie. Plez, stop saying that.

Re: Out in the West Texas town of El Paso...

There's always...

Precious Father, why have you given me this desire to wrestle and then made me such a stinky warrior?

How did you find me in the wilderness?

I like, I don't believe in God, I believe in science.

Not because that is my opinion, it was just a good comeback for Esqueleto to say.
