      I think I really like it, the feed is something that I've been wanting and I think the new profile set up will lend itself well to images and information without becoming cluttered. What do you guys think?

      I'm going to copy this from my Journal:

      So I'm getting back into shape, that's no secret, but what is a secret right now is the AWESOME site Fitocracy.

      Basically, you get experience for the workouts you do based on reps and weight and you can even get credit for things like walking, running or, hell, using the stairs instead of the elevator somewhere. There's also quests based on doing different kinds of workouts either a number of times or across a variety of muscles. ALSO, there's achievements for doing certain types of weights above a certain percent of body weight, or getting a lot of fist pumps or even just using the site a lot.

      Working Out

      4 years ago

      Time for another check in on my journey to being not out of shape, I'll just copy this from facebook since it's concise and accurate:

      I feel like a direct forward shot is the worst possible comparison shot haha. I can do 10-15lbs more on every single workout and I'm down another belt notch between these two photos and only my shoulders look bigger.

      Although I think my face looks thinner here too, so that's rad.

      Anyone else watch UFC?

      4 years ago

      I am really into it now. I think to me it's just the purist form of sport I've ever seen which is also exciting and consistently available. I mean, swimming and running in the Olympics is also a no gear, no ball, just a single person being awesome sport but really how often is that on?

      MMA is all about a guy stepping into a ring with nothing but himself and showing what he has against another warrior.

      In related news my favorite athlete ever, Shane Carwin, lost on Saturday and I am disappoint. However, for those of you who saw the fight and/or care, he showed a fuck ton of heart, respect and endurance to keep going and finish the three rounds. Not to mention that if the final round had been 30 seconds longer he actually would have won, since he had Dos Santos is a wicked choke.

      Still a Cain Velasquez v Junior Dos Santos title fight is going to be intense.

      Halo 3

      4 years ago

      I haven't played Halo multiplayer in like three years. In fact I never even got any of the DLC after the first pack.

      Well, now that I've watched so much RvB over the last few days I decided to get all the DLC and mess around with some multiplayer. Screw Reach, also kind of screw ODST (I won't lie I have no idea how that game and Halo 3s multiplayer interact, but I have ODST maps downloaded I guess?) it's time to play a three year old game for basically the first time.

      So

      4 years ago

      I guess I've actually watched seasons 6 and 7 before. I just totally forgot just about everything they covered.

      So I just watched them again today and I think that before I hit up season 8 I'm actually going to re-watch the first 100 episodes again. Or maybe do season 8 and then watch the original 100 before season nine. The point is, fuck did I ever miss this show.

      Working Out

      4 years ago

      I used to be in good shape, then for four years I tried my hardest to ruin all the good work I had done. I had pizza Monday where I would eat an entire extra large BBQ chicken pizza while playing WoW. I got tons of candy after holidays when it was on sale and ate it with no regard for anything. I stopped working out entirely and basically put on almost 30 pounds of fat and lost almost all of my definition.

      Then about a year and a half ago I became a vegetarian and started trying to eat right and I stopped putting on weight.

      THEN about two months ago I started eating really right, working out, going on lots of walks and over all just making fitness a priority again. I've dropped about 15ish pounds of fat and put on some muscle again and I just this month started taking photo's to track my progress. Mostly because two months ago I would have been much to ashamed to even look at a picture of myself with a shirt off. That is not to say that I think I look good yet, but I look good enough that I can handle some tough criticism and maybe, if I'm lucky, even get some encouragement.

      So this is what I looked like on May 17th 2011:

      may17th.jpg

      I know I'm standing weird, I'll try to not do that from now on. Self timer and rushing to get into position = leaning on a leg while turning.

      Every month I'll be posting a new update and also a combo picture comparing that month to this first photo. Maybe in a year I'll look as good as I used to. Maybe I look better? Hopefully I'll be healthy, since that's the most important thing.

      Hi opaque,
      Ironically after reading the post below, I just logged in last week after being afk for about a year and still had you on my friends list.

      Anyhow, check out this forum thread? I'd like to get a few people started in it, see if it catches on.

      Dear Opaque,

      Hi. You may not remember me as it has been years since we have spoken (lame) but I am that girl who won that contest that one time. I think we used to be kind of tight. Anyway, I was meandering around Roosterteeth and came across FinchLynch's latest journal "poll chronicling the best things on roosterteeth (one of which is apparently you?) and it occurred to me how long it's been. Are you still alive?

      Sincerely,

      Lauren (lmf221)

      p.s. This is kind of a facetious comment but I really do miss seeing you around.

    • jackal5

      8 years ago

      I actually don't mind their older, "East-Bay-Hard-Core" albums (Answer That... and Very Proud Of Ya). Can't really compare them to the newer, darker stuff, but that's the kind of AFI I knew first, via Nitro compilations and that, so I enjoy it for what it is. Granted, once albums like Black Sails and Art of Drowning came out I was blown away with their progression, and what they were capable of doing. Sing the Sorrow too, they again took it to a whole other level, and that's easily one of the more overplayed CDs of all I own. Like I said, december.... isn't my favourite, but even their worse album is pretty damn good, so I shouldn't bitch.

    • jackal5

      8 years ago

      All I want from Davey Havoc is another Art of Drowing and I'm not so sure that's ever going to happen again.


      Or Sing the Sorrow.

      I've heard a couple BA songs so far. Sounds more along the lines of depressing Bauhaus style 80s stuff, which I know is a big influence to Havok and the others. I wouldn't hold it at the same esteem as AFI, but any side project from them is definitely worth a gander.

      Edit: Decemberunderground is still my least favourite of theirs, although maybe with their progression up to that point I'm just holding Art... and Sing... in a high regard. Thoughts?
