March Reading Romp


March was a productive month as far as reading is concerned, even though I spent four days in L.A. networking and partying with people. There was a heavy focus on books that I would consider life improvement and challenging to conventional wisdom. I didn’t plan on the month going that way, but that’s just how things progressed. Okay, enough bloviating on my part. I give you the March...

February Reading Romp


What’s up with it my fellow bibliophiles? I hope your February treated you well and offered up plenty of time for you to read. I didn’t get as much reading done as I would’ve liked.

Little 5 Points is the bohemian center of Atlanta; full of artists, musicians, street murals, and other interesting characters. I wanted to move here because it reminded me of Austin, which remains my favorite city. My apartment is a...

12 Things I’ve Learned In 12 Years Of Lifting


I grew up in a really small town, and went to a very small school. There were 68 kids in my graduating class. The same weight room I learned to lift in was the same weight room my Dad worked out in. When I was 13 years old and in 7th grade I got my first taste of lifting. My friends and I used to walk into the gymnasium, and go up the stairs into an old and beat up weight room. The mirrors were...
