    TUF 20

    That's T The U Ultimate F Fighter, season 20, which after 20 seasons might possibly make it the longest running "reality" show. I believe 'Dog The Bounty Hunter' currently holds the title? In any case it's an all female straw weight division (115lbs) fight-off, with a Championship belt on the...

    718 Cyclery

    Another season, and time for another chain. Apparently my local bike shop's Campagnolo11 chain rivet peening tool recently went missing. We have another pro shop close by in Brooklyn who I know builds a lot of high end bikes and is certainly in possession of the tool required to install my...

    Forget the Oscars, is anybody else watching UFC 170?

    And forget the men, it's Ronda Rousey vs. Sara Mcmann. An Olymic judoka medalist vs. an Olympic wrestler medalist... I love both these ladies, and they both love to bang. And since the only thing I may love more than racing a bike is sanctioned banging, and ladies that love to bang, I'm...

    Watch Riddick, Insidious 2

    Noting personal but I'm betting both these movies are ****. Instead see I Spit On Your Grave part 2. Our hero is savagely raped and beaten close to death, but unlike the sad ending in Irreversible, she comes back and kills all the fuckers who wronged her... slowly. Outstanding! Maybe...
