  1. I replied to this earlier but it disappeared. Nothing very intelligent, just that I appreciate your ongoing investigation of gender. I've been thinking a bit about the specifics of playful fight insults here in America ("don't be a little bitch", etc). These are obvious, broad sexist statements but there is also a lot of affection in them. Fear in other words is gendered female (at least in my American context), but there is also a playful understanding of the omnipresence of fear. I love these people tossing around the insults so I am not going to take them personally because why but..
  2. I am sorry it sounds terrible. I know the shutdown is for safety and it is the same here but its unsettling that life changes so rapidly. I'm glad the PM will take control of the whole country because a patchwork approach seems ineffectual. The US is so immense and things are proceeding piecemeal since the fucking "president" is doing nothing but damage. Many beautiful stories for example Ford is making ventilators, a former art student of mine is fabricating high end face shields for health workers. Thank you again for your Covid training videos. This is so strange - a truly global phen
  3. It's a bad disease. I had my first close friend die, quickly (guess that's a blessing). We are in the USA Upstate New York (NYC is epicenter). I don't like living in fear but I do like living in reality (well like it.. maybe not right now but better than la la land). Good luck.
  4. That sounds like the stage we were at last week - kinda desultory preparation and a few things slowing down here and there. But this week we are in full shutdown - schools, all large social events and people are being directed to limit their social engagements, maintain 6 feet apart as best they can (hard in cities but I am in a small town). I have noticed a gym offering classes for 4 people only to be able to keep the 6 feet apart. My gym and others are banning shared equipment. People have to bring their own and not leave them in the gym.
  5. Glad to hear it. Had a friend just come back from an art biennial in Australia (Sydney? Not sure). Seems calm at the moment.
  6. Just checking in to see what is happening around the world with Muay Thai and the pandemic. I am at home with a sick spouse and so unwilling to expose my gym in case I am a carrier. Supposedly they will begin online training soon, and I trained at home and will continue to do so. A fighter in my gym had his fight cancelled due to the epidemic (its a small gym). What is up with you?
  7. Janet Todd just "beat" Stamp Fairtex too although I reckon there is a lot of controversy about that (scoring looks weird). One Championships. Thanks for this, Kevin! Super interesting and congratulations to Sylvie although it sounds like she belongs on the list in a few classes!
  8. I would just add if you want to cut carbs for general weight loss but aren't following a well designed keto plan (like Sylvie and I think Kero, not sure) it was recommended to me to start by just cutting out bread and potatoes, substitute sweet potatoes and oatmeal. If that doesn't get you losing then you can cut carbs further but the energy problem applies to me too - time your carbs for half an hour before you train (little bowl of white rice is the ticket). Hope that helps.
  9. This is a seminar. I’ll be studying later. Night of the Hunter is a favorite. It’s all I can do not to tattoo “Love Hate” on my knuckles.
  10. There is the pragmatic element of shooting fighting at all, which is that its usually low lighting with no flash allowed - that kind of begs for noir! I am not all that experienced with fight photography and I really enjoy yours, Kevin, and Walt yours too. The coolness factor is interesting (this is a general remark so pardon me for not quoting); it is interesting how it dovetails with hyper-elegant masculinity. In Woo films, the love story between Chow Yun Fat and his criminal adversary is this kind of elite level of masculinity, where one is not afraid to be "feminine" (big quotes there),
