"I prefer creative."

Excellent.  Her previous Secret Six is one of my favorite comic runs.  Gail Simone lets Catman loose in a fresh ‘Secret Six’ in DC’s New 52 | Hero Complex – movies, comics, pop culture – Los Angeles Times: "Now the secret can be revealed: Gail Simone is relaunching “Secret Six” in the New 52, and at its core is a mystery with an answer that she said all DC readers will want to know. The fan-favorite writer, who recently wrapped a well-regarded run on “Batgirl,” will introduce the new gang of rogues to root for in an ongoing series set to premiere Dec. 3, and she promises the same sort of “black humor and edginess” – and unpredictability – that won her previous run on the title a passionate following. “It’s so fun to write these characters that are really poor role models,” Simone told Hero Complex in a recent phone interview. Rather than “brightest heroes or the darkest villains,” the book lives in the gray area between, with “private detectives, mercenaries, bounty hunters, failed heroes,” she said...  the writer framed the story’s setup: It opens with six strangers trapped in a room and unsure how they arrived there. “They instantly do not like each other, and they instantly do not get along with each other,” Simone said."

Joe Rogan-Rethink Your Life | Earth. We are one.: "It’s all ridiculous. It’s not that you know, being a Muslim isn’t ridiculous, but being a Jew is. Everything is ridiculous. Being a Catholic is ridiculous, being a Protestant is ridiculous; being a Baptist is ridiculous, being a Buddhist is ridiculous, being an anything is ridiculous. You attach yourself and your mind to any ideology. You are going to be on a road, and that road may or may not leave you in a good direction. But you’re going to stay on that fucking road, if you’re attached to an ideology. And it could be a terrible road."
Joe Rogan-Rethink Your Life | Earth. We are one.: " The problem is no one knows. You cannot know. You can have your own beautiful personal experiences. You could have been the person that was actually touched by God. And it’s not that, you know, yoga is the answer or fucking mushrooms is the answer. There’s just questions. The human race is stuck in a giant quagmire when it comes to our behavior and our thinking about our behavior and until we’re honest about that, we’re never going to evolve. For lot of people now, religion can give you inspiration, but there comes a certain point in time, where you have to proper train yourself. And we have to recognize that, all this morality that you’ve developed is good, because it is good to treat other people good it’s good to treat other people the way you would like to be treated yourself. It’s a fucking golden rule, and there is a reason for it and that reason is that, we’re connected in some strange way that we don’t totally understand...

The right path to being like a happy, healthy person is to do all the shit that we already know you’re supposed to do. Take care of your body, take care of your health, take care of your mind, your stress, meditate, be kind. We all know that. You ask anybody they know how to get by and to be the most evolved version of you – you could be. Healthy foods in your body. Many, many vegetables, vegetables, a lot of good, good quality protein, a lot of water, stop the sodas, stop the bullshit, start working out your body and get a better sense of like how this machine feels when it’s moving, it’s flowing better. There is less tension in it, your mind feels like relaxed and you enjoy every single moment of the day better. Step one, everybody knows that step right? What’s step two? Be cool to people, be nice to as many people as you can. Smile at as many people as you, have them smile back at you. Tip well when you go to restaurants. Just do the most you can. What else? Do what you want to do with your life, right? Don’t be doing something you don’t enjoy. Don’t do something that’s, don’t get locked into, doing something crazy because you need money. Don’t, don’t do that. Do what you want to do. Do what the fuck it was that that you really want to do because if someone else is doing it, you can do it."

Training - "Some quit due to slow progress..."

9/4 - squats, leg xt, Smith calf raise 

T Nation | The Current State of S&C Coaching: "...barbell training with progressively increasing loads on the basic exercises increased strength, power, and all of the other dependent characteristics – for everybody, and for several years, if they trained consistently. The experience of every advanced powerlifter bears out the truth of this statement, and the testimony of athletes subjected to ineffective machine-based, functional training-based programs documents the time wasted on less effective programs. If your criteria for an effective way to manage the strength program include running everybody through the workout in under 30 minutes, making everybody vomit instead of making everybody stronger, screaming and yelling instead of coaching technique with precision and effectiveness, and substituting conditioning and agilities for progressive improvement in basic strength and power, I'd suggest a rethink."

9/3 - bench, incline db press, incline db flye, dips 

Ming-Na Wen is fifty.  5-0.  And a bad-ass.  No Excuses.  Ming-Na Wen - Timeline Photos: "How do we #RebuildSHIELD? Make damn sure our "guns" are fully loaded! BAM! #badass @iambjbritt @nickdiscoblood"

"3. You're Not Mastering the Basic Lifts 
Strive for mastery while you train. I know you think you're impressing the girls by loading up the leg press and slamming the weights up and down over and over. Want to know what they really think of this? I asked them. They think you're an asshole."
