Top 10 Reasons to Get Excited for the Olympics: #3 Ass-Kicking!



Top 10 Reasons to Get Excited for the Olympics: #3 Ass-Kicking!

Did you read that correctly?
Damn Right.
The Olympics is a time when all the great sports of the world get to fight it out, and when it comes to fighting for medals, some fight more literally than others (worst joke ever, I know). This time of year, there is also some major attention given to sports that redefine awesome but get little coverage.



This includes:
Judo
Taekwondo
Greco-Roman Wrestling
Freestyle Wrestling
And
Olympic Boxing

I will be very excited to see the Greek Olympian Alexandros Nikolaidis go for a shot at a Taekwondo Gold Medal after coming in Silver twice at Athens 04 and Beijing 08.

 It would also be sweet if the Great Korean Champ Moon Dae Sung had come out of retirement just to kick some more ass.

 They might air sports such as Judo and Boxing at 3 AM on CNBC and Bravo, but that is no reason to count them out. Judo has become a special favorite of mine, for it is one sport where athletes from all over the world and in every walk of life can win and show pride.

Questions for You:
Why is it fun to watch people kick ass?
 But Not Like This!

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement
