201  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Despicable Me / Toy Story 3 / Inception on: December 01, 2010, 03:55:52 PM
Although Despicable Me / Toy Story 3 are "kids' movies", my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it as did our children.

Despicable Me was touching in that the protagonist is a villain and he adopts 3 girls with the idea of using them to steal back a shrinking ray gizmo from his competitor who stole it from him earlier in the movie. Along the way, he begins to love the girls as daughters and not as pawns in his evil machinations.

Toy Story 3 is about Andy all grown up and off to college. He wants to save his toys and put in storage but somehow the toys get donated to a pre-k daycare center. The toys' mission, find their way home while dealing with some 'evil' toys. Fans of Toy Story 1 and 2 should definitely watch 3 if they haven't already.

Inception blew my mind, I really liked the complexities of the storyline. Not a Leonardo DiCaprio fan, but liked him in this. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was awesome in this. I kept scratching my head thinking he looked so familiar and I couldn't place him. After the movie, my sis-in-law mentioned that he played Tommy from the TV sitcom Third Rock From the Sun and it hit me. Christopher Nolan did an outstanding job on the story as well as direction IMO. DiCaprio is a thief who can enter people's dreams and steal their secrets. He is hired by Saito for a job to plant an idea in Saitor's competitor. Of course DiCaprio has his own demons he deals with. There is one scene where Gordon-Levitt does his own stunts and he is fighting someone else.. they are both floating, much like zero gravity. Don't want to spoil the movie too much with more details.

All 3 are highly recommended by me.

03. It's Cool Whip time!
04. If I don't undo my pants, I'll burst!
05. That's one terrific spread!
06. I'm in the mood for a little dark meat.
07. Are you ready for seconds yet?
08. It's a little dry, do you still want to eat it?
09. Just wait your turn, you'll get some!
10. Don't play with your meat.
11. Just spread the legs open and stuff it in.
12. Do you think you'll be able to handle all these people at once?
13. I didn't expect everyone to come at once!
14. You still have a little bit on your chin.
15. How long will it take after you stick it in?
16. You'll know it's ready when it pops up.
17. Wow, I didn't think I could handle all of that!
18. That's the biggest one I've ever seen!

19. Stop playing with your meat and eat it!

Woof Guro Crafty,

I've always wanted to watch The Mentalist and Lie to Me (forum member ponytots reco'd Lie to Me on the Movies/TV thread)... alas, no time to watch TV. However, coincidentally Mrs. Stickgrappler is watching a Hong Kong TVB crime drama called "Every Move You Make".

Every Move You Make is a 2010 Hong Kong police procedural television serial drama produced by TVB. ... In the show, Senior Inspector Yiu Hok-sum (Bowie Lam) and his colleagues of West Kowloon Police Headquarter's CID unit use the Facial Action Coding System, body language study, microexpression interpretations, and applied psychology to solve and assist in criminal investigations.


Crime Unit Senior Inspector, YIU HOK-SUM (Bowie Lam) has learnt his mind reading skills overseas. He is efficient and, by far, the most competent cop in his unit. He is able to analyze and read people’s minds just by observing their body language, facial expressions and from the tone of voice. In addition, he is also highly skilled when spotting disparities in testimonies and evidence.

Sound familiar? I didn't make the connection as I haven't watched The Mentalist nor Lie to Me until reading your post.

There was an episode where a female impersonated a male to throw the police off when she went to an ATM. The camera caught her checking out her fingernails. Men generally curl their fingers up almost balling into a fist and would check their fingernails that way. Women would splay out their fingers and admire their nails. I was surprised when Sr Inspector Yiu revealed that tidbit as it was true! I was walking by and caught that scene. Intriguing! Now I gotta make time to watch Lie to Me LOL

Salamat Po.



Oh! Dayum! Dr. Ekman's site is loaded with info/articles!

Will be reading some of his articles shortly.

Copying and pasting some pix posted by my friend Ausgepicht from elsewhere.

Dana White looks disappointed that Lesnar lost.

What a cut on Brock's face!

Congrats to Cain! I really like him. I was anti-Lesnar to begin with, thought it gimmicky of White to have him in the UFC. But after Brock beat Shane Carwin (who I also like) coupled with Lesnar's coaches (Erik Paulson and Greg Nelson = JKD!!!!), I started to like Lesnar a little.

Think Junior Dos Santos is next up for Cain Velasquez, which should be a good fight, but the fight I want to see is Cain vs Shane Carwin.

My thanks to Ausgepicht for posting the pix as well as to the original gif makers.

sounds like a modified Warrior Diet or Eat Stop Eat

controlled fasting

consistent conscious exercise is a truly beautiful thing to behold

Woof 5ROF:

I didn't read Eat Stop Eat, but thought I read a blurb about it somewhere and it advocated fasting/skipping 2 meals only every few days? Vs eating 1 meal per day?

209  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Herschel Walker (48) breaks fitness rules on: October 12, 2010, 08:43:38 AM
Walker eats once a day and trains 6 to 7 hours in mixed martial arts

This is mind-boggling!

Copied and pasted from

  • Herschel Walker, 48, is training for his second mixed martial arts fight, set for December 4
  • Former running back: "I'm in better shape than I've ever been in"
  • Walker eats once a day and trains 6 to 7 hours in mixed martial arts
  • He's also had stints in ballet dancing and Olympic bobsledding

(CNN) -- Javier Mendez, a mixed martial arts trainer for 32 years, scoffed when he heard that retired NFL star Herschel Walker, who's nearing 50, wanted to compete in ultimate fighting.

"Yeah, I didn't think he could do it," Mendez said. "I thought it was a joke."

Walker had been out of football for 12 years. Aging football players tend to get flabby, play golf or relive the spotlight under "Dancing With the Stars."

But the 1982 Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Georgia always had an unorthodox streak.

After stints of ballet dancing, Olympic bobsledding, running track and field, gaining a black belt in taekwondo and retiring from a celebrated football career, Renaissance jock Walker has dived into the most physically demanding and controversial sport of his career.

At 48, Walker is training for his second Strikeforce mixed martial arts fight, scheduled for December 4.

"I was in great shape when I was younger," he said. "This is the toughest thing I've ever done. I think that's the reason I'm in better shape than I've ever been in."

He was chosen to pose naked for ESPN The Magazine's "The Body" issue, out last week, to show his muscular physique.

"I'm going to do something different, to be a little different than the average person," he said. "You can't be in the same cookie cutter."

Walker has never followed the fitness norms.

He eats once a day, skipping breakfast and lunch. After a long, intense day of training, he eats salad and bread for dinner. He doesn't care for meat or fuss about getting enough protein. Walker's a vegetarian.

"It's a mindset -- something I've been doing for a long time," he said. "I don't worry about protein. I don't worry about all that. I'm from old school. I grew up in south Georgia. They didn't worry about cholesterol or protein. They went out and worked and lived a long time, so I don't put a lot of worries in my mind. I just get it done."

Sometimes, Walker doesn't have an appetite and will go through seven hours of wrestling, kickboxing, sparring and practicing jujitsu without having eaten for three or four days.

"It's just unbelievable," said Mendez, who trains Walker at the American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, California. "He shouldn't be able to do what he's doing. I don't think it's possible to eat as little as possible and work out the way he does. There's no way. He's an unbelievable athlete."

Mendez doesn't try to change it either.

"You can't fix it, because it's not broken," he said. "You can try to understand it -- good luck with that."

And no, Mendez thinks it probably won't work for most people.

At 5:30 a.m., Walker wakes up to do 750 to 1,500 push-ups and about 2,000 sit-ups.

"I try to show the world at my age, I could do it," Walker said. "I'm not trying to be arrogant. My parents say you can't make excuses in life, you've got to get it done."

And he did. In his first Strikeforce fight in January, Walker defeated Greg Nagy, a fighter almost half his age.

Walker's genesis into a Renaissance jock sprang from chubby beginnings.

He was a pudgy boy with a stutter who was picked on and shoved as a child.

At 15, he said he "started working out after watching 'Love Connection' and started doing push-ups and sit-ups," he said. "I started doing it on my own -- that gave me confidence."

As he developed into an athlete, his interests varied from two-man bobsledding to ballet.

"When I started out as little kid, I didn't say I just want to run football. I wanted to be a great athlete," he said.

"It's mind over matter. You got to work at it. You can't assume you're a great football player so you'll win in bobsledding. It doesn't mean you don't have to work."

Walker's recent return to competition sends a different message to middle-aged men who believe that getting out of shape is the inevitable part of aging, his trainer said.

"It doesn't matter your age," Mendez said. "You can do it at any age. Look at your desire. Don't let age be a barrier to prevent you from doing something you want to do."

Shortly after his retirement from football in 1997, Walker began having symptoms of mental illness and struggled with dissociative identity disorder, or DID, formerly known as multiple personality disorder.

Herschel Walker reveals many sides of himself

Walker said he receives therapy to control the disorder.

"I have problems and as long as you admit you have a problem, that's how you become better," he said.

He even considered an NFL comeback before deciding on mixed martial arts.

The high-contact, bloody sport has often been criticized for brutality as fighters can knee, elbow and kick each other in the face. Walker shrugs off the criticism about the sport.

Fans attracted to 'forbidden fruit' of violence

"The idea of football is just as physical as MMA," he said. "I don't worry about it."

What if he gets knocked down by a younger, stronger, more nimble opponent in the ring?

"I do this 'Walker shake,' " he said. "You got to get knocked down many times, shake it off. Life is about ups and downs, and you got to keep standing up."

Dogfight ends in owner slay

Last Updated: 11:46 AM, October 1, 2010

Posted: 2:39 AM, October 1, 2010

A popular bartender with a black belt in karate was stabbed to death yesterday outside his Brooklyn pub by an ex-con in a senseless fight over who had the tougher pint-sized pooch, police said.

The violence erupted at around 2 a.m. at the Branded Saloon in Prospect Heights when off-duty bartender Chai Eun Hillmann's miniature pinscher, Rocco, snipped at convicted killer Daniel Pagan's Maltese.

Hillmann, 41, a former karate instructor and sometime TV actor, had a sushi dinner with his parents at their Hamptons home and then drove to the Western-themed bar on his night off to play in a charity poker tournament while Pagan, 36, was downing drinks with his wife, witnesses said.

Both men had tied their pets to a fence outside the bar and were mingling when the little pooches began biting each other, according to the witnesses.

Rondel Sommerset, 30, a friend of Hillmann, said the dogs' antics attracted everyone's attention.

"The wife was trying to separate the dogs. Chai and the stabber were arguing whose dog could beat up whose. It was in a sort of joking way," Sommerset said.

But the dogs' leashes became entangled and Hillmann may have brushed up against Pagan's wife while unknotting the mess, police said.

"The stabber was saying, 'You pushed my wife's arm.' Chai said, 'No, I didn't. Before we get into this, ask your wife,' " Sommerset recalled.

"They started to tussle. No punches were thrown. People were trying to break it up."

Dan Hultquist, 36, another off-duty bartender then jumped in.

Pagan whipped out a serrated gravity knife and sliced Hultquist in the neck, police said. The wound was not serious.

"Chai and the guy ended up in the street. That's when I saw the stabber's elbow going back and forth [in a] stabbing motion eight times," Sommerset said.

"Chai stumbled. He got up twice and said, 'He stabbed me! He stabbed me!' "

Hillmann suffered two wounds to his chest and died at Kings County Hospital.

Pagan, who served nine years in prison for shooting a man to death in 1991 and wounding another, was charged with murder, attempted murder and weapons possession.

The short, bulldog-looking suspect refused to comment when he was walked from the 77th Precinct station house.

Hillmann recently had small roles in "Law & Order" and the USA Network's "White Collar."

He was adopted from a South Korean orphanage when he was 7 years old by Carl and Jane Hillmann. His father, speaking outside his home in Amagansett, LI, was filled with rage at Pagan.

"If the guy was in front of me right now, I would probably kill him," he said.

A friend is looking after the dog until the parents can take it in.

"That dog is our grandchild," the elder Hillmann said, adding that his son and Rocco "were inseparable and they had the same personality."

For years, Hillmann ran the Chai Karate martial-arts school in the Westchester County town of Ardsley, and wanted to open a school in the city, as well.

In a 1996 interview with The New York Times, he said people should study martial arts for self-defense.

"They won't be victims," he said. "They can choose whether to continue confrontation or get out of it and flee."

An amusing study in human interaction.  Any analysis?

I was hoping others chime in. Because I'm at work, I cannot have the volume that loud. Want to hear what was said and the tone/volume it was said.

My preliminary analysis/guesses as to what sparked the confrontation without further info of the possible interactions prior to video could be :

1) Grandpa and Daughter have to pass Young Man to get to their seats. Grandpa and Daughter having hard time going through Young Man who may not have gotten up to facilitate G & D's crossing.
2) Or G & D kicked/stepped on YM's feet.
3) YM had some beer in his system and may be a little buzzed.
4) The weather probably didn't help as it was muggy, hot and humid and people's tolerance levels were lowered.

222  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / US Open Tennis 9/2/2010 Djokovic vs. Petzschner match - Fight in the Stands on: September 03, 2010, 10:02:20 AM

Cut and pasted from above link:



Thursday night, the fireworks erupted in section 187, near the top row of Arthur Ashe Stadium.

During the eighth game of the first set between No. 3 seed Novak Djokovic and Philipp Petzschner, a fight broke out in the nosebleeds.

Arnold Florendo, 37, of Great Neck, L.I., caught the fracas with a video camera, which he turned over to police.

Florendo told the Daily News that a woman slapped a younger man, who in turn pushed an elderly man down the stairs. The elderly gentleman, who was wearing a Mets cap, was seen in a wheelchair on the concourse being questioned by a police officer.

The officer instructed the man to "get checked out."

The woman, who Florendo believed was the daughter of the elderly gentleman, and the younger man were both taken away in handcuffs by NYPD officers.

The USTA did not release any names. Calls to the 110th Precinct, where it is believed the two are in custody, were not returned.

SG's note:  I cannot play the volume too loud while at work, not sure if we can hear what words were exchanged, but apparently the young man used a lot of F-bombs. The weather yesterday in NYC was 90 degrees Fahrenheit or so (30 or so Celsius) and perhaps alcohol was consumed.

Only caught 3 fights.

Joe Lauzon was impressive. Unrelenting.

WOOHOO for Randy, called everything for the UFC Fantasy except the minute. Randy got a RNC on Mark Coleman, thought Toney being a noob at grappling, would give up his back and Randy gets the RNC. Randy mentioned to Joe Rogan that he worked on the arm triangle choke for a year, nice!

Man, did BJ cut weight again? Is Edgar THAT good? Is Edgar in BJ's head? Lackluster performance by BJ. Dude, if your hands ain't knocking him out, take him down and sub his @$$. Edgar's a purple and you a world-class BJJ'er. It's like his fight with Kenny Florian... box a few rounds, finally, take Kenny down and sub him. Should've did that vs. Edgar in both fight. Perhaps the cutting weight was a huge factor in the first fight, I don't know if it was for this fight.

p.s. Sorry Chad, I had partial picks in 2 wks ago, then thought I would finalize my picks before Friday. Of course, got busy and didn't remember. Measly 82 pts.

A blonde calls her boyfriend and says, "Please come over here and help me… I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get started."

Her boyfriend asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?"

The blonde says, "According to the picture on the box, it's a rooster."

Her boyfriend decides to go over and help with the puzzle.

She lets him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over the table.

He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says, "First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster."

He takes her hand and says, "Second, I want you to relax. Let's have a nice cold drink," and then, he said with a  deep sigh..........

So, did he tap or not?


Apparently it's not the first time he (Chael Sonnen) pulled this "I didn't tap". Looks like he was tapping to the armbar and not the triangle choke.

Im such a perv... cheesy

good one

It took me 7 seconds to realize I am a perv LOL


A guy is 72 years old and loves to fish.

He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard a voice say,

'Pick me up.'

He looked around and couldn't see anyone.

He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice say again,

'Pick me up.'

He looked in the water and there, floating on the top, was a frog.

The man said, 'Are you talking to me?'

The frog said, 'Yes, I'm talking to you.'   

Pick me up then, kiss me and I'll turn into the most beautiful  woman you have ever seen.

I'll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous because I will be your bride!'

The man looked at the frog for a short time,

reached over, picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front pocket.

The frog said, 'What, are you nuts? Didn't you hear what I said? I said kiss me and I will be your beautiful bride.'

He opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said,  'Nah, at my age I'd rather have a talking frog.'

With age comes wisdom.

Thanks, Stickgrappler!

We've exchanged emails in the past (i've posted on another forum as "the stewed owl") and sent you some photocopies of articles on JHR and Bando, and always enjoyed all the archives on your website.

Grateful to hear from you again, as well.

This will sound lame... but I saw "Mick C." and my kneejerk reaction was, "I wonder how 'TheStewedOwl' is doing... dayum lost contact with him... I wonder if "Mick C." is him"? Nah, what are the odds?!?!?!"

Are you still on the UG? I sometimes check there but I've less time at work to surf around all the forums I used to visit regularly, mainly lurk here and hang at Ausgepicht's forum. If you have time, check Spladdle out.

And many moons ago when you sent me that BB JHR article, little did we know thatBB would make their 1st issue through their December 2004 issues available free via Google Books LOL

Very truly yours,



Grateful for hooking up with old friends whom I've lost contact with!
