So I noticed in the latest Yinz Luv Da Stillers episode that he had given Emmanuel "Crazy 88" Sanders the nickname "DeMANuel". I am a big fan of Jim and wish he would post a new Guins episode, but I am wondering if this DeMANuel is better than my "Oh come oh come" sung everytime #88 makes something happen. Acadia heard me do my thing last Sunday, so you can ask her for a rendition. Wutchu think bros?

1st night: Blue Album + Greatest Hits
2nd night: Pinkerton + Greatest Hits
Which one would you go to? I am not doing both that is just plain crazy. I am leaning blue, but kind of think Pinkerton will be less crowded?
Coming soon: Boot update week 3... 1 week to go!

Just came back from the premier of this guy (it was in Tahoe first, but they did one in SF too). Really, really good. Completely different than the other biz, gets even dudes stuck in giant plastic boots psyched. Now trying to decide on the length of my board. Gonna be a tough decision cause I've been riding short, and need to go either 157 or 159. Leaning 157.

Negatives: This boot sucks. Couldn't go out last night cause I was so sick of walking in it, and my foot and leg just gets really tired after a full day of activities. Ripping out my leg hairs somehow (thermos action??). Foot already feeling atrophy I think, squatted last night without the boot to plug something in and my foot almost gave out. I stare longingly when I see skateboarders or runners go by.
One More Positive: Less than 3 weeks!
One More Negative: Pretty much 3 more weeks.
Denny D gon be throwing mad bombs to El today. WHABAM!

So I found out Friday I have a stress fracture in my right foot which has left me in a boot for the next 4 weeks. After discussing this with my doctor this is probably from going pretty hard with the vibrams, barefoot running, and forefoot stride. This type of working out was great for my ankles, knees, glutes, hips, back, core... I was really digging it. Vanessa had told me before from Barefoot Ted's workshop that he had warned about "too much too soon", which makes sense as you are working muscles in a way you have never done in your life before. I thought this was mostly for major long distance runners, but just from the sprinting workouts I did combined with some longer runs and crossfit stuff, it was enough to develop the fracture. The doc told me this occurs over the course of 6-12 months, and I switched to forefoot about 9 months ago. Huge bummer. I know I've told a ton of people how much I liked this style of running, and I do hope to go back to it eventually, but taking it a little slower. So I hope everyone I recommended it to sticks with it but be careful, and don't overdo anything. I was blindsided by this injury, and I hope it doesn't happen to anyone else.
Since I can't really do cardio right now (no access to a pool) I'm gonna start a injury sketchbook, and try and sketch it up as a little replacement hobby for the next 4 weeks.

You know what Mariah would've done with this video? White sandy beaches, maybe some playful spy action storyline, lacy white sheets, fancy undergarments. She keeps it relevant and hot. Case in point.
Gaga let me just point you in the right direction. Even you can shred, and you don't even know it.

I accidentally bought this book on Kindle after Carmina recommended a book called Heat. This was not that book, which I figured out 10 chapters into it, as it was super corny. Highly recommended for some 6th grader who likes sports and sportsmanship. Not good for kids who are actually major league prospects, cause those motherfuckers need to forget about books and get back to do doing pushups in the sauna room.
One thing amazing about this book is that he is able to fit the entire usual story book ending stuff in like 5 pages. It's like been suffocated with warm kittens, it's too much too soon. Also, I cannot believe I finished this book. I hope this was helpful to you.

Saw this with Carmina Friday, general consensus "How did that slip by the haters?" Next with Steveo, "Maybe it's ok because they are from SF?" Saw it Monday with Mary got tagged up by haters, and painted over by employees, looked like crafty-design place... harmless, seemed in-line with general broness of the mish. Early this morning they had hired a night security guard to stop the haters out front (which goes against broness), security guard explained to some dude that they were only renting it for TWO MONTHS??
WHAT IS GOING ON??

This album had all sorts of weird hype, mostly centering around the fact that RZA had gone super indie with the beats and Ghost and Rae were not feeling it. I remember I listened to it like twice when I first got it fall of senior year ('07), and me and Joe agreed it sucked. Gone forever, despite how much I anticipated everything else Wu Tang did. Not to mention pitchfork was snooty about it.
Well, today I listened to it a few times in a row at work, and it's definitely an enjoyable album. Although the beats aren't something you are gonna be blasting at P-Days, you can pick out some really nice stuff here. The two all-stars on this album to me were GZA and Inspectah Deck, with Raekwon and Ghostface right up there. I think my fav track is windmill, which sounds like the intro to Kill Bill (also produced by RZA).
Other things that are interesting is that I definitely shared this song before anyone else on reader, but no one noticed it. Pots for my kitchen!

In other news, I need a vacation badly, and Yosemite is just on the horizon. Hopefully weather will be solid and we can make it up half dome, and super awesome luck if we get to see the el capitan falls. Very rare indeed. Before that includes tryouts, and Texas Shootout with revolver. The Yosemite trip will start a waterfall of awesomeness that leads to poultry days and hopefully another deep playoff run.
To wrap this brief post up, I give you the obligatory Tommy Blog in geocities form. Not that great. Needs more blink.

it feels like you've drank 5 red bulls then been told to sit through a lecture on statistical analysis of demographics or something. OR SOMETHING!

Then I turn around and see it's a PRIUS!!! C'mon jerk! Obvi we are both trying to save the environment, I am just doing a better job than you (pending confirmation caltrain = better than cars). I am not sure whether you are honking out out jealousy or because you only bought that for the tax credit!

T: Look! It's your favorite shop, the one you wish you worked at! The, uh, homemade shit shop.
M: Well, I respect your hobby, your hobby of running around and throwing discs... with a bunch of... bros!
Bro with laundry: Harsh! Well, I hate that shit too... but, that's tough bro.

Lots of updates, I've been screwin' around and haven't posted in a little. Just finished a bacon sando oven-cooked style (via Mary). Let's just get right to it.
NEW BIKE! Got the surly (in black) cross check about a month or two ago, been crushing with it. It's great. Such an upgrade, it's quite a thing to get really excited to ride your bike. Got some toe clip pedals (on the one side, flat on the other), so things are REALLY great while riding. Super, super fast. Beefy tires to avoid the flats, fenders (poorly installed... don't install in the wee hours of the morning) to keep out the rain.
I'm writing this up while watching Gettysburg as I just finished Killer Angels for like the 95th time in my life (could you take Jeff Daniels seriously as your colonel?). Had to reread two super awesome books after the suckiness of the end of the Alvin Maker saga. First, Lord of Light, which is a really, really great book that just went back into paperback print. Highly recommended. Crazy futuristic Hindu/Buddhist religion stuff. The second was Killer Angels, which is the book of books. This bro at dirty thieves last week recommended Shogun to me, have any of you fools checked that out? Now reading Foundation and Earth, which is pretty slow so far with some jerk arguing with some robot chick the whole time. I will give Asimov the benefit of the doubt and hold out.
RANDLE EL! Holy shit!!!!!! How many times has this ever happened? 1. Griffey 2. Michael Jordan (which doesn't really count) 3..... Pee Wee Herman? Anyways, bros are psyched, and I am ready to rock my new surprise (supplies!) away jersey!
Unreal. But with the mega-awesome comes the terrible. WTF. Don't worry, the guy packing my bag up at the IGA, who saw my beanie told me it's gonna be alright.
Buford is killing it! Beautiful ground!

Lately I've been struggling to wrap my head around the new coming of bro and what it means to my vocabulary. I find myself using bro as a criticism and positive reinforcement, solely based on the context of which it is used it in. True, brolores is overrun by bros posting up, but at the end of the day I'm relying on my bros. Therefore, I urge you to seek the bro-ness in your life, and how you can better bro it up day in and day out.

The Cudi album rocks, and I felt dumb in Pittsburgh for not even having it yet. I like-a the singer-rapper dealie coming out with Drake and Cudi, and I like that Cudi opted out of autotune, which Jay-Z told us is dead anyways, so we couldn't even use it if a gun was pointed to our head by an autotune loving serial killer. I keep finding new tracks that I like more on somedays than the big hitters, and gives me hope that Kanye will keep finding sweet bros for the GOOD label.
Clipse is sounding like Lord Willin' again, which is both great and not great, because Hell Hath No Fury was so epic. Still, the bitterness is there a little, which lends to some sweet versus seen on the Freedom track, which also channels Russell Crowe quotes from Gladiator. I think the Popeye's track is my favorite, although I am confused, as Killa can be seen eating fried chicken in the video, which according to him, would immediately lead to terrible stomach pains and diarrhea. The "All Eyes on Me" is a banger as well, Andy is psyched to fist pump for sure. When Clipse said they weren't going to be going with the Neptunes for this album, I thought that meant NO Neptunes. All it meant not 100% Neptunes, more like 89% Neptunes. Yeah, these dudes rule.
Wale is a little disappointing... so many songs here sound so dry. Especially after Mixtape about Nothing and his other junk, this is not what I expected. Some tracks are alright, as linked above, so maybe it will grow on me. I still would love to see him live, I bet it's kicking, and Pusha T gives him props all the time so maybe he can just merge with Clipse in a human merger tank and make a super rapper. That sounds like a good way to salvage the album. Write it down. 1. Human merger. 2. PROFIT!
