About 10 chapters into Insurgent and enjoying it.

Badass? Wow I didn't know it was possible to be badass with a cookie ;)



It is.  The guttural growling vocals that death metal bands like Cannibal Corpse use are referred to as Cookie Monster vocals.

And like baby bears or baby tigers, they're adorable at first but they're gonna get bigger and more menacing.

Or maybe I've just been playing too many games that look all sweet but can be hardcore difficult, hence the whole cute=badass thing.  (E.g. Battle Princess, Squids Odyssey)

So batoto and Crunchyroll it is for Yowamushi Pedal... until I can buy the books and blu-rays in English.

Is there a better fan translation out there?  Right now, there isn't any legit English language publications of the manga or anime.  When there is, I sure as hell will plunk my money down because the series speaks to me.

Just started reading Yowamushi Pedal and I think I have a new favorite manga (and possibly anime when I get around to watching it).  I relate to Onoda.  I'm obviously a dorknerdgeek, definitely not as smooth as I let on in social situations, gym class joke, etc.  And I've gotten flak from skinny-tire riders a lot about my "heavy bike" with "fat tires" (I ride a hybrid).  But then, I smoke 'em going up the hills.  Skinny tire riders who'd wipe me on the straights, I'd nail them on the hills, because I've become a half-decent climber.  Kid sorta looks like me too.  

Methinks it's a sign.  

EDIT: Cut the sentimental fat.

From Sunday's bike-a-thon.  This was taken near the finish line so the brutality of those last 10 miles definitely shows on my face.

Love them.  They're adorable, they're badass, they're adorably badass. Second one's expression is priceless.

I was straight-edge for 2 years till I fell off the wagon for a year and a half.  And I haven't had any alcohol or other intoxicants for the month I was training, and I've never felt better.  I don't regret the time I fell off the wagon, but I felt like fate gave me the call to arms to come back to the 'edge.

EDIT: And big ups to my riding partner.  He's a cancer survivor, talked me into doing the ride, and is awesome.  I call him "Captain Jack" because his name's Jack and he was our team captain.  

I was more referring to the after-effects of the long bike ride

A lot of cyclists do drink a beer post-ride to quickly replenish carbs.  

But, yeah, I'll probably be a smidge sore tomorrow.

Thanks.  With a metric century under my belt (65 miles= about 105km), my next goal is to ride a century (100 miles).

Deutschland won.  The better team prevailed.  Although the ref was an idiot.  The guy who clawed Schweisteiger's eye should have been carded and Germany should have gotten a penalty kick.  And I call bullshit on the call that gave Argentina a penalty kick.  That was a legit tackle.

At 1:17PM today, I officially rode my bicycle (affectionately namedTamara Ny) 65 miles in the Philadelphia Bike-a-thon. Words simply cannot describe the experience. I rode Tamara Ny longer, harder, and faster than I ever have, and she took it. We (yes, my bicycle has a soul) soared up the hills (after skinny tire riders would smoke me on the straights, I'd roar past them on the hills), we danced in the rain (there was a 15 minute stretch when it rained; it was glorious!), and survived those last 10 brutal miles. Strong headwind, my leg cramped up at the 56 mile mark, but I just dropped to granny gearing, worked the kink out, and powered to the finish.

My legs are aching, I'm absolutely spent, but I CANNOT wait to do this again next time and do more distance rides like this.

And I definitely want to make a return to the straight-edge lifestyle. Cycling is the only drug I'll ever need. Waking up at 4AM this morning has NEVER felt this fantastic!

(1)  Decided to change my profile picture to one of my creations. :)


That's a cool piece.  Will you share more pics of your creations?  

Haps:
Bike-a-thon's tomorrow, so today's a recovery day for me.  

And lol at Yoda's Pool of Thorns gifs.

After we got done with band practice, we watched "We're the Millers."  It was hilarious, if a bit choppy.  Will Poulter played the dorky kid really well, so now I actually want to see Maze Runner to see him play the bully.

I'm glad to hear the game is good.  When I went to E3 2012, I visited with Larian to get a preview of the game and I liked where they were going with it, but in the back of my mind I kept saying, "this is ambitious.  Can they pull it off?"
