"Janitor" Joe Rogan v. Wesley "The Wifebeater" Snipes

Okay, by now everyone has heard this rumor, in fact Rogan himself has apparently confirmed that he has made the offer of a fight to Wesley Snipes, but they can't agree on money. Why would I want to see to cheeseball celebrities duke it out on a PPV event under the Banner of the UFC? I'll tell you why: I don't think there would be anything more satisfying then watching two spoiled rich kids smash each others pretty faces in. Okay, okay, Rogan doesn't seem like a bad guy and Blade was one of the coolest movies ever, but seriously, doesn't this hark of mid-eighties "Battle of the Network Stars". Does anyone honestly believe that these two guys would actually risk losing a fight on PPV? I have noticed a number of celebrities watching events ringside, and Michael Jordan, Mike Tyson and others are regulars at K-1 and Pride events (Who could forget the ridiculous brawl between Tyson and Sapp during the 2004 GrandPrix), but do you really want to see them fight when we could be watching some real talent?Frankly I am much more interested in seeing St.Pierre/Hughes II.

Worst UFC Ever....

I admit that the return of Royce Gracie really surprised me. I can't wait to see him take Matt Hughes' face off, and it was amazing to see Hughes nervous in the presence of one of the greatest martial artists in history, but last nights event was horrible. Part of the problem I think is that a lot of these guys arn't use to the spotlight and haven't quite got their celebrity legs underneath them yet, it will come though. Unfortunately it don't make good TV! Dana needs to point out that their real priority should be making good TV. Had the event been a PPV, I would have been really pissed, but under the circumstances it was okay. I won an easy $20
though. How about Arlovski, will amyone ever beat him? Neither of the two guys fighting for the chance last night will survive a round with him. Sylvia needs to hit the wieght room. Dream match up: Bob Sapp v. Arlovski.

The Truly Surreal

Here is an excerpt from MSN website:

"A survey finds America’s attitudes toward overweight people are shifting from rejection toward acceptance. Over a 20-year period, the percentage of Americans who said they find overweight people less attractive steadily dropped from 55 percent to 24 percent, the market research firm NPD Group found"

I am so sick and tired of every deviant, perverted, and grotesque habit attributed to North Americans being slowly accepted and justified. Obesity is unhealthy and it is a sign of uncontrolled eating. It has nothing to do with glands, hormones or any other "victim" condition. If you are fat its because you eat too much, if you get lung cancer its because you smoked a pack a day for 50 years, if you like having your body rubbed down with ketchup while you are slapped by a monkey with a whiffle bat it means you are a sexual deviant. Stop forcing the rest of us to "Accept" your deviant, anti-social behaviours and join us while we try to have a civilization or do us all a favour and SHUT THE FUCK UP! Stop making excuses, stop justifying your grotesque behaviours and start trying to be better people. I am so sick of being "sold" on everything from perverted, random sex to eating so much our hearts explode in our chests. Have we become so mindless and spineless that we actually give up on trying to make our lives better and simply accept, no - not just accept, but prefer our disgusting, slobbering, fatass, no-neck physiques? MSN, you can go to hell. All you magazines I see at the grocery stores, you can go to hell to. And as for you, TV ads, if I ever catch you you better bring a baseball bat 'cause I am going to kick your fat, loudmouth ass.

What's next? Playboy's "Women that eat too much McDonalds". Gimme a break.

Time to Vote

Everyone remember that no matter how much you hate conservative ideology, the Liberal party can only be fixed if they are censured. That means you can't vote for them! The conservatives are going to form the government, so vote NDP and hopefully we can get a little balance this time. Martin's political existence is no longer relevant, who does he represent?

Alfred Levinson - A good friend and a good man. R.I.P.

On December 12th, 2005 my dear friend passed away from Cancer. Dr. Al Levinson, my moral compass, my mentor and an individual who made more then a lasting difference in my life.

He was a simple man, however you met him - as a professor, a teacher or a customer. He had an unassuming nature and offered consistently good advice during one of the toughest times in my life. I will always be envious of his amazing ability to sense B.S. and to give those who spewed little of his time or consideration. He supported my goals and my dreams, and always pushed me to make the right decisions.

I met Dr. Levinson while I was a bartender at the University of Calgary. Amongst the many grouchy, rude, and cheap professors that I met, he was an oasis of kindness and gratitude. He always ate at the same table, he frequently ate the same dinner. He always drank his coffee black and always tipped generously. He was never too busy to offer his help or just talk about the worlds affairs. I made a point of making him feel welcome every time he entered the lounge, and although I did not always succeed in being the best waiter, he was always the best customer. It was an honor and a privilege to be amongst his many friends and proteges.

The last time I saw him, at the end of the summer of 2005 he was well and happy, generous as always, remembering even the smallest details of my life that I had ever mentioned to him. I was on my way to beginning the next phase of my life, and he was as excited about it as me. He offered generous praise, but always cautioned me about being flippant or callous. Even into his last days I imagine he never stopped working or offering his time to those who needed him. I cannot say enough about a man whose character I shall judge all others against.

His accomplishments are too many to list, but always impressive to me, was that a mineral had been named after him - Levinsonite, although he always considered this only in passing, and perhaps with a hint of shyness. He was a role model and should be what all university instructors strive to be: friendly, helpful, and discerning. Never would Dr. Levinson be in a bad mood, or surly towards even the lowliest of students, staff or service people. A kinder man God does not make.

So, Dr. Levinson, I seek to make a tribute to you but I find myself unable to do you the justice that your character and your life deserve. So I will simply say that I will lead a life that you would have expected of me, as I was always determined to be as good a person as you expected of all those people that you let into your life. I thank you for your help, I thank you for you instruction and I thank you for allowing me into those last few years of your great life. May you always be remembered and may your spirit be given the rest you deserve. I hope you finished whatever project you were working on, because I know that if you didn't you are working on it as I speak. Rest in peace.
