    What's The Last Movie You Saw: The Sequel

    I watched The Favorite last night and Holy Shit, I already thought of Yorgos Lanthimos as the most interesting director working today but this solidifies him as My Favorite (see what I did there) Olivia Colman's performance was award worthy, not to detract from the other 2 main characters who were also fantastic. All side characters were interesting. It was hilarious, and dark. This is way more accessible than his other films (Dogtooth, The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer) but still manages to keep his aesthetic. This man is a master.

    Unofficial Jiu Jitsu thread

    I haven't competed yet. I plan to in the next couple months and decide how many times per year I will compete based on how much I like it. Funny story - another guy at my gym just competed for the first time. He always comes to class hungry, but 30 minutes before his first match decided to eat a giant sandwich. He was ok the first match but lost. Won his second match, and then on his third he was winning by 6 points but had to throw up. So he jumps up and tries to run off the mat, throws up just as he gets to the edge of the mat, steps in it, slips, and falls directly into it.

    I steal stuff from yoga and incorporate that into my before class stretching. I generally get there 30 minutes early to foam roll my tender spots and do some stretches.

    The best of outdoor style: Hiker, adaptive, tactical, etc

    I swear by Hoka for the rare times I actually do any trail running. My wife absolutely hates them, says they make her feel like she’s falling forward. I also use use them for day trip hiking and backpacking. I havent tried anything thing they have to offer WP wise, but I know that it exists. They do the color ways that you would expect from a shoe company that focuses on running. Usually pretty bright and vibrant colors fading into one another and all that other bullshit. They do have a couple color options that are nice color wise though.

    Heads up on Risk though. The host is quite possibly the most annoying person I’ve ever come across. He talks for about 5-10 minutes at the beginning of each episode. I highly recommend skipping it. There is no important information there, he just blathers on with the worst voice known to humanity.

    I first got interested when a friend of mine invited me to one of his ground pajama karate sessions. Fell in love. 1. How long have you guys been practicing? I've been going for 8 months. I've had to take 2 months off due to a rib injury though, so I generally say I've been training for 6. 2. Where do you guys train? Near Oakland, CA at PFMMA. It's a Caio Terra associated gym (who's main spot is in San Jose, only 45ish minutes away). Tyson Griffin (of UFC fame) owns the gym and trains there about once a week. 3. How do you guys train/build strength for it? I thought it would be all I needed but I've seen now that I need to work on my core, especially my lower back in order to stop getting injured. So my training schedule as soon as I go back full time (still got a slight rib injury) will be as follows: Tuesday - 1 hr strength and conditioning, 1.5 hrs BJJ Thursday - 1 hr strength and conditioning, 1.5hrs BJJ Friday - 1 hr No Gi, possibly more if others stay instead of going to da club Saturday - 1 hr open mat (maybe more) Will probably throw a Monday in there every other week or so of only BJJ 4. Do you guys where gis/no-gi and what brands do you guys prefer? It depends on the day. Friday's and Wednesday is no-Gi days at my gym. I prefer Gi though. My no-Gi stuff is some Under Armour shorts(not nut huggers) and one of those Nike sweat wicking shirts, both from REI. You don't really need BJJ gear for no-Gi so easier on the wallet at first. Gi wise I have two. a lightweight Hyabusa that has worked just fine for me. I actually prefer it over my normal Gi because I run hot and it allows more breathability. I also have the OSS brand one my gym used to sell. Now they sell Faze or something? I don't really like the design of it so I wont be buying one. If you're looking for recommendations just go and get a $100 one of any one of the brands I or ralphy listed.

    Slow Burn - 2 seasons the first one goes in depth on the Watergate scandal and the second goes in depth on the butthole cigar scandal and Clinton being a rapist. Risk/The Moth/This is Actually Happening - People tell stories about their lives. Risk can get really freaky, TIAH can get pretty depressing, I actually go to a lot of The Moth "story slams" that are put on near me. It's my favorite of the 3. Last Podcast on the Left - In depth fact based analysis of serial killers and other pieces of shit throughout history with stupid jokes thrown in. Recently did a several episode exploration of the stupidity of the Donner party. Dis/sect - long form music journalism. Super interesting. So far he has done To Pimp a Butterfly, MBDTF, and Channel ORANGE. And that graffiti interviews podcast Coupe did had its moments as well. I forget what it's called. Thursday Legends or some shit.

    Legal Weed Up North

    It’s been legal In California for a little bit now. The weed stores here seem to be a lot less GNC and a lot more “weed is flippin sick bro” I don’t really marijuana anymore though. It’s always fun for like 10 minutes but then I’m still high for another 2 hours.

    The "Your Day in Pies" Photothread (non artistic)

    I don’t take a lot of pictures. Rode out to Stanislaus national park this weekend. Rode about 5 miles in the dirt to camp next to the Tuolumne river and drink and shoot guns. Some of us went fishing as well, but that’s not really my bag. The weather shouldn’t be this nice in November.

    NuForce BE Sport4. i had a pair of Panasonic Bluetooth earbuds for about 7 years that were great. They had a piece that hung around your neck so the weight was always centered. If you were only using one earbud (which I do a lot) the one that wasn’t being used could be connected magnetically to the piece that hung around your neck. Those broke though. These aren’t as convenient for my needs as the Panasonic’s were, but they are still pretty good. Battery life seems to be about 10 hours of continuous use (switching between podcasts and music and gps). My my one major gripe is that there’s no “center of gravity.” If I just want to wear one earbud the other side can’t be affixed to anything and so I’m forced to readjust the unused side constantly so that it doesn’t feel like it’s trying to pull me down by that side. You would think something so light wouldn’t be that much of a bother, but it really does get in the way.
