The Official Ninja Homepage

I made the mistake of listening to the music embedded in this site for just a little while too long yesterday, and it is still in my head. Augh! The agony!

Still, the site's worth mentioning, because it's just so perfect. Granted, ninjas aren't everyone's favorite subject, and they're not the nicest folk on the planet, but this is perhaps the most beautiful website I've ever seen, right down to the postscript on the "Letter (to those jerks who don't like my web-page)":

you are dummies

I'd love to tell you more, but I just threw my computer out the window trying to get that music out of my head.

Update: The site has moved. And the letter is here.

Reading about the ninjas made me think that their spriritual home must be Las Vegas. Just as ninjas are cold and uncaring, yet demanding and precise, Las Vegas is a paradox. At first it seems fake. Fake New York casino, fake Paris casino, fake Pyramid casino. And cheap...none of these fake worlds bother with the achitectural integrity or even real sense of dimension of the originals. They're caricatures for people who think they know what New York "must really be like". But Vegas is not cheap. In fact it's ostentateous and pretentious. The casinos are fake, but the Rolexes they sell are real. The fat guys who come with an unimaginably beautiful rental date actually get to sleep with them; they laugh in your face when they win big, buy big cigars and juciy steaks and still walk away with a buck or two. But like the ninja, Las Vegas is a comfortable union of seeming opposites. It's a veneer of total pretentiousness laid over an absolute lack of pretention. Las Vagas is pure and true; in fact, it's in your face with its purity. It's all about fun and money. If you don't like fun and money, don't come. More accurately, if you don't want to spend money for fun, stay away. For those who demand truth, can recognize the central essence and ignore verything else -- like the ninja -- Las Vegas is the only real place where you don't have to sleep with one eye open.

I live in las vegas and i cant find a place to train in ninjutsu. The only place is an hour away from my house. And, theres a young guy there who i can guarantee is not a ninja. He doesnt know stealth or any other skills of a ninja. I cant seem to find any real ninjas in las vegas. If you know of any please e mail me.
