3 eggs, spinach, onions, sweet potatoes, tomato, bulletproof coffee, sunshine and nerdy podcasts. I've been predominately following the Paleo diet since 2009 before I even got into Crossfit. A few minor hacks (grassfed butter, lots of fats). Of course there are some cheat days/nacho benders but for the most part it's easy to follow. It's tasty as hell and I feel it works well for my body. I eat meats, good fats, heaps of veggies, nuts and a bit a of fruit here and there. Nothing in my fridge has a nutrition label on it. If it does it has one ingredient: (I do use a bit of siracha I'll admit) Throw away the sugar. Throw away boxed foods. If it says "low fat" it's probably just chemicals and sugar so throw that out too. Eat foods that grow. Not foods that are produced. Easy. Just do it. #humpday #indolife #thetruefreedommovement #truefreedom #beardgang #beepic #getstrong #eatwell #tattoos #Bali #backinbali #menandcoffee

#(LGBT)BlackLivesMatter Comments (0)

All of the white progressives disgusted by that disruption of a Bernie Sanders rally by #BlackLivesMatter activists might want to re-think the knee-jerk responses: One of the women who took over the stage turns out to be a Palin-supporting radical Christian, and both have been disavowed by the actual #BlackLivesMatter organizers.

I was pretty surprised by the responses of some white progressives, along the lines of, “That's it, I'm done with #BlackLivesMatter.” It implied that racial injustice and disproportionate police violence were only concerns to them as long as black people played nice. Not a good look, progressives.

That said, that fucked-up rally takeover (for which #BlackLivesMatter has asked those rogue activists to apologize, by the way) revealed Bernie Sanders to be scarily accessible to those who would do him harm, and it sure didn't help anyone's cause.

##########

On a related but unrelated note (because I've read some white gay people equating these issues), the uproar over Stonewall's racial representations may be premature, based as it is on a mere trailer, but there's nothing wrong with being a person of color who sees a perceived whitewashing of history, even in the form of entertainment, and raising concerns.

Cher Madness Comments (0)

Sonny-cher-billboard-mag-2015-650Don't miss Keith Caulfield's amazing, career-spanning interview with Cher in Billboard. It's very dishy, including behind-the-scenes info about how “Believe” wound up sounding that way, how much she dislikes “Dark Lady” and her '70s story songs and how Doris Day's husband vowed to bury Sonny & Cher.

I found some of it reminiscent of Maximilian Schell's Marlene (1984), in which Dietrich (in her early eighties; Cher is pushin' 70) crankily dismissed much of her work as kitsch, kitsch, kitsch! The main difference is that Cher comes off as honest and non-defensive.

What A Riot: New STONEWALL Movie Storming Theaters In September Comments (0)

UnnamedJohnny Beauchamp and Vladimir Alexis (Credit: Phillippe Bossé)

Director Roland Emmerich's Stonewall (written by Jon Robin Baitz), a fictionalized account of the Stonewall Riots, will be released on September 25, 2015.

A press release makes much of the fact that Emmerich and Baitz, are both out gay men.

The film stars Jeremy Irvine and newcomer Jonny Beauchamp, with Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Ron Perlman. 

From a press release:

Emmerich, who also produced the film, says, "I was always interested and passionate about telling this important story, but I feel it has never been more timely than right now." Less than 50 years ago, in 1969, being gay was considered a mental illness; gay people could not be employed by the government; it was illegal for gay people to congregate, and police brutality against gays went unchecked. Today, thanks to the events set in motion by the Stonewall riots, the gay rights movement continues to make incredible strides towards equality. In the past several weeks alone, the Boy Scouts of America has moved to lift its ban on gay leaders, the Pentagon will allow transgender people to serve openly in the military, and SCOTUS has declared that same-sex marriage is legal nationwide in all 50 states.  

"It was the first time gay people said 'Enough!'" explains Emmerich. "They didn't do it with leaflets or meetings, they took beer bottles and threw them at cops. Many pivotal political moments have been born by violence. If you look at the civil rights movement, at Selma and other events of that kind, it's always the same thing. Stonewall was the first time gay people stood up and they did it in their own way. Something that really affected me when I read about Stonewall was that when the riot police showed up in their long line, these kids formed their own long line and sang a raunchy song. That, for me, was a gay riot, a gay rebellion." 

 "What struck me was that there was a story in there, which I felt had an important message - it's the people who had the least to lose who did the fighting, not the politically active people. It was the kids that went to this club that consisted of hustlers and Scare Queens, and all kinds of people that you think would never resist the police, and they did it." And the events they set in motion would have a profound impact on the future.

It means nothing that Queen Elizabeth II gave a Hitler salute at age six ... if you're worried about her character and her actual feelings toward the man.

But historically, what an amazing bit of footage! Edward, W.E. know you loved Hitler, that not so bad chap.
