WATCH: Akira The Don - Be Brave

Download Be Brave here.

Finally! The Street Fighter Mixtape has some kind of visual representation! Shout out Joey and Karl who sent through the footage. It's from Street Fighter Legacy - an truly ridonculously ACE fan-made mini-movie. Fits the music like a  glove.

Of course, once I'd uploaded it, with the usual issues that rendering and uploading entails, keeping me up till 4am, I noticed that dozens of videos of my Street Fighter music were already on Youtube. Looks like people have been active out there. Big up you active Youtube uploaders! That's a beautiful thing right there!

Speaking of which, I was blessed this weekend when one of my favourite writers, The Authority and Transmetropolitan scribe Warren Ellis featured Be Brave on his podcast, explaining:

Akira The Don. AKIRA THE FUCKING DON. Was kind of amazed when this turned up, and I’m privileged to have this for the podcast.

I was like, DAAAAMN HOMIE! Actually, I already mentioned this in the Blob Blog, so go read about it there.

In other Be Brave related news, check out the Hype Machine's radio show later today - they just wrote to inform me they're doing a feature on our awesome feat of Number Oneage last week.

Right I am gonna draw something now, then you'll be getting more new music. These are the golden years!

Yessir. The Doncast comes back tomorrow. And best believe I won't be able to do that forever. So get your requests, your shout outs, your letters, all that good stuff, get that in sharpish, via the email address that reads thusly: akirathedon at

Oh yeah - not only will be dropping NEW ISH later today, but we will also be announcing the winner of last week's Caption Contest. GO GO GO!
