Chinito Gomez

March 31, 2011

I played juco soccer with guys that really talk like this so i’m not even mad. I get the feeling that the Just Kidding guys are cool with Mexicans, but don’t really like Koreans.

Such great heights

March 28, 2011

$15 to get in, but well worth it. I was leaning over the railing when I first got i and ended up rubbing shoulders with Bea Mesquita. Literally rubbing shoulders. She’s cuter in person and seems to be a bit sarcastic, although it’s hard to tell since my portuguese is limited to words that sound the same as they do in Spanish. Kron Gracie was also milling around and he looked really peaceful, or maybe depressed? Best match of the day for me was the brown/black final in one of the lighter women’s weight classes. Gezary Matuda won via triangle/armbar. I googled her and in 4 years she’s gone from white belt to pan-ams black belt champ. Last year she won at purple belt with a triangle.

Pan-Ams

March 27, 2011

Pan-Ams are at UCI this year, and the black belts are tomorrow. I’m especially looking forward to seeing Hillary Williams compete. I’m a big fan of her blog and might be a little star struck if I get a chance to meet her. Hopefully I don’t chicken out like when I was 2ft from Nam Phan for half an hour and didn’t even say hello. I featured Marcelo Galvao on the blog last year and he’s a favorite in the mw division tomorrow. I think the coolest thing about the Pan-Ams though is Tim Peterson(who used to teach the BJJ class at UCLA) contested the black belt absolute title and won his first match. He lost his 2nd match to one of the eventual finalists, but it’s pretty cool that someone who’s choked you before is now competing with the very best bjj athletes in the world. Something to think about.

Faithless retired/broke up recently. Dido and Maxi Jazz were a big part of my formative years.

Heath Herring

March 26, 2011

Young Heath Herring was an incredible fighter to watch. An uncanny ability to land kicks on the feet and then crush people on the ground with knees to the body and head. Knees to the head aren’t allowed in the UFC, but they were in Pride. One more reason to miss Pride. Herring had so much confidence that he could avoid being submitted and that he could pound people out that he’d go to the ground with just about anyone. He fought and stopped men like Tom Erickson and Mark Kerr who were literally giants and even went to a decision with Nogueira. You can’t help but get excited when you see how excited Herring is too fight they finally stood them up in the Erickson and Kerr fights. His excitement is palpable and it makes for great fights. Great use of facial hair and mohawks too predating Dan Hardy and Tom Lawlor by a decade.

The Evil Genius

New DJ Green Lantern(aka The Evil Genius) Master Class mixtape is solid.

Breezies

March 21, 2011

The emergence of a new class of super skanky women poses a threat to men and women everywhere. Don’t be fooled by their attempts at rationalization, these breezies will assault you in broad daylight and try to take advantage of your man later that night and not even feel bad about it. I really wanna know where these ladies are coming from? Is it purely a place of hate and self-loathing or is this just the next evolution of girl on girl violence?

Piano rock is so catchy sometimes. Kim’s got great biceps.

Manos arriba

March 20, 2011

I’m sick for the second time this year. Need to hurry up and get better before my mom’s b-day. Spent the last few days working on a project, studying, and eating pho 2x a day.

I hate yall, yall got too much free time

March 16, 2011

Found a buyer for my extra front bumper and started the car on a diet. It lost 60lbs in about an hour. Took off 3 off the tow/tie downs, door speakers, style bar that came with the car. Fixed the passenger door lock so it locks and unlocks consistently. Gonna drill holes in the doors and then put the skins and armrests back on this weekend. Sliders and rails for the seat are gonna have to wait cuz I don’t want to pop for new ones and I haven’t found any used ones yet.
