Moves Like Prey

“It’s different nowadays; happiness is something that people seem to think is their right. There’s no worry about starvation, or having a roof over your head, or being invaded. So they worry about whether they are happy or not. I suppose that’s some kind of progress.” -Henning Mankell

You know the system is FOOKed when people find this offensive…


But don’t think twice about supporting (spending their skrilla on) this…

From “Super Size: The Dizzying Grandeur of 21st Century Agriculture”

Here’s some (info) ammo for the next attack from that one vegan we all know; the one with the “animals are my friends and I don’t eat my friends” approach. (A) That’s cool, but I eat mine, and they are delicious (and nutritious) AF. (B) And lest you forget we’re all in the circle…

Th | I know I should be able to write my own recovery workout, but fuck if I could figure anything out by the end of the day. An EMOM sounded nice, so I inquired about Ali’s recipe:

The Skipper’s EMOM Recipe:
•1 part something you enjoy
•1 part skillz you need to work on
•1 part elevate your heart rate

I ended up going with a combo that I’ve been throwing in the mix kinda frequently as Pappas agreed on it. Partners: so high-maintenance.

Sa | Snatches: from red light last week (air brakes) to yellow light on the catch. Widened my stance a bit. Felt really good, but by the looks of it there’s still lots of air there between the booty and the mat.

I hear some people argue static stretching is a waste of time, but I really like it after training. It’s the coffee after hiking; the reading after yard work; the spooning after sex. It’s a little time to chill out and consolidate the day’s work, in whatever capacity that may have been. Or a chance to hear some epic one-liners from Kay-tay. Either way, in the week to come, I’d like to find my corner of the new digs and come back to that.
