Those of us who troll the comments of this blog on a somewhat regular basis would have seen Matt Beauchamp's challenge to Kade to bench press 255 pounds some time ago. Well, I think it's about time the challenge got its own post, no matter what the age of it.
Here's the details of Matt's challenge:
255 lbs, INCLUDING the bar (which weighs 45 lbs); that's two 45 pound cookies on each side, then a ten and a five on each side.
He's making it very easy for you, Gleaming Face with Spam. As Arnold would say, "Do it. DO IT!"
And if I had my way, Kade would be doing Mike Mentzer-style reps: 5 seconds to lower the weight and 5 seconds to lift it, none of this half-rep bullshit where the bar goes down to a point where it's 5 or so inches above the chest and then the user starts to press back up and the lower back raises up 10 inches off the bench (the amount of guys I've seen do bench press with horrible form like the aforementioned is sickening). The shoulders and triceps take the brunt of the weight in the bench press exercise, but since Kade has enormous, Adonis-like shoulders, he should be able to handle it no problem.
So step up Kade, there's 500 American dollars in it for ya. Speaking of which, why haven't there been any more Kade workout videos? Has he become embarrassed to release videos of himself in the gym since the hack job I did (with his other workout videos) that were featured in Yakety Kade?
You saw the new banner? You like it or what? I'm an old-school DOOM fan, so it made sense to me to copy & paste Kade's (un)likeness into that good ol' game. Hell, if I find the time one day, I might even create a KadeDoom WAD file, complete with sound clips and characters images based upon our lisping hero. I have CamStudio 2.0, so I could probably record a demo of it for y'alls enjoyment. How many of you people own a copy of Doom, or Doom 2, or even Final Doom? How many of you know what Doom is? For those of you who don't, you should be ASHAMED of yourselves!
On a completely different note, what about a LegoWigKade theme song? I've noticed that Kudos is quite adept at lyrical composition, so I have a challenge for him: how about a reworking of Motorhead's "Ace of Spades"? I was thinking that the title could be "He can't get laid" or "Debasing Kade" (or something to that effect)? Is there an instrumental-only version of "Ace of Spades" out there (and I don't mean the damn karaoke version)? If such a task were to be undertaken, who would record the vocals? Initially I thought of Brett (the guy from Australia), but I saw a comment from him awhile back saying that he was "out" (I know, I know, Lemmy is from England and Brett is Australian, don't jump all over me). Are there any Englishmen who would do it? I don't have the vocal fortitude for such a job, and I know I'd do a horrible one of it. But this is an example of user-generated content, or, more specifically, a collaberation. Who's with me, WHO'S WITH ME?
Here's an awesome compilation someone came up with that features both the Mad Max films AND "Ace of Spades":
