Dark Lord beer was pretty good, though it was not as thick and syrupy as previous years. I've only tried one other year and it poured like motor oil. I traded one bottle for one of my roommate's older vintages and am selling one to my roommate's brother. One bottle is R's. So that leaves four bottles of 2009 to cellar and one bottle of 2007. I might give a couple away as time goes by. Excellent.
For some reason had a long debate about, really, nothing on Saturday evening. Some guy was talking about how he works out - inefficient bodybuilding routines with running afterwards, he was in the gym for like 2-3 hrs the other day, my roommate was going on about how one doesn't need to work out with weights and that bodyweight exercises will get you as strong/in-shape as one needs to be, and I was sitting there listening to them be fools and occasionally pointing out 1. the first guy is weak and working out inefficiently, there are much more effective and efficient ways to increase the amounts on your lifts and your general fitness (ie, he should be able to squat 300# in a few months of consistent work, but he'll never do that with the way he's doing things now) and 2. the second guy is weak and flat-out wrong, you're not going to be able to squat 300# without picking up weights and being able to squat 300# is a useful and attainable skill for most men in a matter of months - it's not thrown out as an impressive figure but a realistic one. Your life will be better when you can squat 300# and doing so is not orthogonal to other fitness parameters. Oh well. It's a free country, they can believe whatever they want. I can believe results. At least the first guy squats correctly even if he is programming poorly.
Speaking of which, I noticed on my cleans that I'm landing with my feet too far apart, I think to compensate for landing with my knees not bent enough. Easy fix: drill landing stance, consciously catch lower in the right way by bending the knees more rather than having a wider stance. It's only a couple inches of depth. The life you save could be your own.
I have to find a time to get my car to the shop. I'm busy every evening until Friday, May 8th. Wow. My schedule is pretty full. Well, maybe I'll have time on the 6th. Maybe.
This is very important and we have to get it right. I'm trying to give a shit about this presentation.
