We had an honest-to-goodness makeup artist at the photo shoot tonight doing me and the other guys' faces (I think her instructions for me were something along the lines of "Toby Kieth, but bishounen.") She did a very nice job (hopefully the real pictures will make this clearer...)

What ever she used on my brows + eyeliner, however, isn't coming off in the shower. I guess my eyes are just going to pop a bit for the next few days...

that is the greatest description of anything I've ever heard.

This is fucking trippy and also excellent. If the opening sentence doesn't hook you... "Honestly, who hasn't woken up in a hospital bed with no memory of how they got there? Like, that's a universal human experience, right? It's not weird? I'm asking because I actually don't know."

I wonder if this inspired xkcd's 'Mycology'? Timing is too perfect if it was incidental. Or maybe there was a common impetus for both.

Huh.  I usually hear this piece with a different arrangement.  This is recognizably the same idea but even some of the melodies are changed.

I really like it, though they have serious blend issues.

It is...really hard to photograph jiujitsu well. https://www.flickr.com/photos/mjbaltierra/26023089831/ (To be fair, the guy who did this--thank you so much!--got tons of spectacular action shots from other competitors. But this is the only proof I have that I showed up.) Also, damn that armbar attempt is sloppy.

I find that its almost impossible to take good photos of things where motion is important.

OK, normally I wouldn't post a shirtless mirror selfie. I'm sorry.

But I woke up this morning for my first BJJ tournament and this is the record I have of feeling ready to go. Right now I feel ready to die (or more likely, drink beer in the hot tub.) I trained hard, prepared hard...but not hard enough. There is nothing, nothing that preps you for how exhausting competition is. You can train as hard as you want in class (not that I did....), but it's just not the same intensity as when you're staring down a stranger with something actually on the line. I won my first match and felt amazing--but could barely stand and was seeing stars.

I did pretty well--2 wins, 2 losses (submission-only tournament), third place overall and I handily kimura'd the winner...so I'm OK with it. Not good enough--anything less than the best is a felony--but a good start.

So time to drill more, get the moves into muscle memory instead of real memory. Time to condition more--longer rounds and less breaks. Ruck with the dogs---no excuse not to get a workout while they do. Cut another ten pounds of dead weight.

I can be better. I will be better.

Good job, dude, keep it up.

If you want it bad enough, you'll find a way to make it happen. Our accomplishments and/or lack thereof are always necessarily a reflection of how bad we actually wanted them.

You know, I'm a fan of theater groups and theater spaces, and a sworn enemy of most people on Mercer, but every time you use the word "normie", sneer at anyone who likes open land or "sports" (sidebar: yes, "sports" is the only conceivable reason someone could want an actual nature space), the more I support them and want to ruin your plans.
I am going to ask you to care about a children's theater. You may think you don't care about community theater created by kids, but you do. Children's theaters inspire kids to use their imaginations while also teaching them teamwork, public-speaking skills, lying gracefully, and intergenerational and cross-class communications techniques. You need to practice all of that stuff in order to function at a high level as a citizen, employee, and human...

I kinda agree with you on the 'normie' usage, but I think you're reading too much into the mentions of open space and sport. I believe the author is criticizing people who falsely claim those interests as a reason to oppose this sort of project. After all, they make a point of noting that this proposed project doesn't actually impact those interests, rather than dismissing them as valid concerns in general.

If you're curious, I now have N=2 anecdotal evidence that meat thermometers substantially overestimate human temperature.

(Or perhaps my thermometers are poorly calibrated, but Thermoworks is supposed to be better than that.)

I am finding it difficult to get hard information on this plan, surprise, surprise. They won’t say which lines will be shuttered and there is talk of “six months” for the shutdown, which I translate as “quite possibly more than a year.” They are not even saying it will happen for sure, but I find …

Funny, that. See my Facebook for a note on the safety implications of the one day shut down. Tldr: probably a few dozen excess injuries, but not measurably or visibly Metro's liability.

Correction, here's a slightly better photo: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mjbaltierra/25996908322/ in which I'm about to flip this guy on his ass (bend left hand back to the mat and do a handstand while yanking on the leg). Then I realize I'm holding his ankle, go for a lock, realize I'm neither sure which variant of ankle lock is the single one that's allowed at white belt and won't get me DQ'd, nor sure how to finish it...try to complete the sweep to mount and don't get it. We then go back to a more even fight. (He eventually arm triangles me. Conditioning, man.) But at least you can see me!

My understanding is that at high level tournaments you are required to bring both a white gi and a non-white gi and switch between them so you can be distinguished from your opponent (which is why people have multiple colors).  At this sort of level no one cares.

I need a pair of pants that are

- flexible enough to move in
- somewhat breathable
- tight enough to show lines (in the ballet sense)
- not so tight that I get complaints about wearing them

so basically, you know, dance pants for men. totally generic dance pants for men.

As far as I can tell, these aren't sold. Even in the Amazon category of MEN'S DANCE APPAREL, there are only two options:

- incredibly baggy parachute pants
- women's pants cut for women in women's sizes with reviews from women

Seriously.  Where can I find a cheap, totally anonymous pair of pants I can wear to dance calls and ballet classes?

Update: Dance pants are comfy, move well, and fit well.

Fit perhaps way too well.  

I may need to wear a dance belt just for propriety's sake.  But they're so uncomfortable.

I certainly correct "blacked like a...", but I don't use all the verses so elliptical doesn't come up.

Great selection of meats, like twenty choices for sides. Friendly service. Four sauces, all good, all different. Sides of excellent quality (if perhaps overpriced.)
