Sorry I watch too much Futurama.



Did you know Adult Swim's contract with Futurama will end in January. I'm deeply saddened.

I have no luck at anything at all ever, and so when I was born I was given no natural talent in anything whatsoever, so the only things I am good at are the only two things in the world that require no natural talent, music, and weight-lifting/running/fitness.

I used to be a pretty promising bodybuilder...
When I was just 15 years old I, Benchpressed 120kg easily, squatted around 150-160kg and
deadlifted 160-170 kg, my arms were about 40-41cm(15,6-16inch.) can't remember any other measurements.

after that I cracked my right shoulder twice and my left knee ones(knee in MMA)
Then when I finally seemed to get things rolling a little better, I got this condition called overtraining(I think that's what is in english) and that condition is actually a lot worse the it sounds, your muscles heal slower, all your results start to drop slowly, you feel like doing nothing all the time, you are very tired all the time, you feel little soreness on your joints, and the recovery can take many many weeks and ofcourse you must stay away from the gym during the recovery... dry.gif

During that recovery time I started playing guitar seriously and after the recovery I just didn't feel like going to the gym anymore. I have been thinking about restarting that hobby, but we'll see...

Now what comes to my excersising, I smoke two packs of cigarettes a day and play the guitar all night long...

I live near the ocean, so I surf! Computers is my original hobby, but now most of my free time goes to guitar =)

I can't wait for summer, I hate surfing in the winter, water is too freakin' cold!

I am also into working out, I stopped a while and did what Tuubsu did, smoke cigarettes and play guitar all day. My endurence when through the floor and my body was starting to atrophe, so I'm in the gym every other day again!

I've done quite a bit of long distance running over the past year, participating in a couple events in the Netherlands. Used to hate running, now I love it.

And another quite recent passion of mine is Floorball, for which I train 3 times a week and play competition in the weekends.

None of the above is at a very high level, but it's good enough for me to enjoy smile.gif

Hm.. When I had the time to play I was pretty good at Freestyle Footbag but had real fun with Footbag on a Net. It's like volleyball but it's much harder since you have to hit a very small "ball"(the footbag) and you play only with your feet. Here's a video to get the idea.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=RQR77E7F-O8

And the other thing I really regret for having to quit was breakdancing. After 6-7 years dancing nearly all of my brightest memories are connected with it. The dancing in the neighborhood with a big casette player with people from all around the city coming to see us... The dance competitions which were really fun... But then I had a very big problem with some kind of nerves on my neck and had to stop dancing :/

Ah and the other thing I'm very good at - looking stupid on photos. For my new job I needed a photo and went to get one.. And it was a disaster again biggrin.gif In the moment I know someone's taking a photo I put the most stupid face ever biggrin.gif Damn..

I spent many years of my life fishing for bass. Had some decent luck in tournaments but fell in love all over again with these six strings. Now I would rather stay home and play while my bass boat collects dust. We used to say the 10% of fishermen catch 90% of the fis, I feel I am in the 10% when I go. cool.gif
