Word (on all points).

I think he was a little harsh on slamming him for the showmanship aspect of his performance since that is part of a lot of otherwise very respectable jazz musician performances. For example I saw Stanley Clarke play an outdoor free jazz festival a few years back. He is arguably an outstanding bassist (RTF and his own stuff as well). But that night he was hamming up some relatively simple stuff for the sake of the fanboys who were standing in front of the stage. Hell even some of the excellent Jazz Fusion (RTF, Mahavishnu, Miles Davis) in the 70s had a lot of showmanship in it, though it was based on virtuoso playing, like McLaughlin playing ridiculously fast and complex solos.

Dunno. My best 5k was 18:36 on very hilly unpaved ground. But I'm not that young anymore.

My best timed mile was 5:19, but that was 6th grade. I'm way faster than that now. I ran 2.2 miles in 12 minutes this spring.

Damn dude that's awesome. I did the mile in 8:45 today, only my second attempt at it. My goal is to get it down to the 5 ish minute mark.

GTFO, treadmill stores forward energy/momentum.

Mile in 6:32 up and down hill, half on dirt, half on gravel, and half on pavement (c wut i did thar?).

I'd be curious to know what I'd do in a real mile.

Default I'm raising the **** tomorrow

My week of summer has officially started. I'll be consuming massive amounts of alcohol etc... Drunken donuts, possibly.

Oh and I'll be testing these FM Vmaxx. Rolling around at 10-1/2" right now. The Clubroadster is strong with me right now.

Live it up! I remember what it was like to have a summer break... so long ago, hehe. Did I hear that you were going to school to be an automotive stylist?

Gary got the A/C fixed in the GTR (it hasn't worked since he left Japan) and we are going for a ride with the camera to find a place or two for some glamour shots of it.

BTW- It's good to have you on here a little bit lately.

That's a sexy kitty. On a side note, I came home drunk one night and decided to chase the cat around the house to show her my anus. Now, when I strip to shower (or lay a supermodel) kittah runs in fear, lol.
