Not able to post from my favourite sports magazines " Fast-Pitch Yearly." However, this is a great instructional on one of my favourite sports. I love the demonstration of "catlike" balance. FASTPITCH!! YEAH!!

May we all find Balance in our lives.

“Probably Sports Illustrated.”

Particularly the "Fast Pitch Soft Ball" edition. Ubluch!! August 24, 2011 at 2:18 a.m.

From the threads...Wha?? Never said I did not like sports. Sorry if I offended you, Nikki.

From Nikki :

punkrockmom (Nikki May) replies…

Hey, I like sports, always have. Sorry if it offends you. My husband warned me to expect comments, which I knew since I check these enough. Thanks for not disappointing.

I think your husband was correct, in a way. Don't take the comments personally.

And, BABBOY...

"BABBOY (anonymous) replies…

Nikki, I am with you. Some one needs to punch Odeo in the face."

That was not a nice thing to say. But, from what I gather, you are kind of grumpy anyway so I will hold my punches. -Odeo...

And, BTW- it would be my pleasure to meet you and have a "talk." Will but you a beer afterwards.

I've seen some male cops with child-bearing hips. Does that count?

I dig, Autie. I feel like a perfumed lady of the evening comfort woman, getting a job and all. As you well know, I consider work a legalized form of prostitution. But I had no choice. And the scenery is damn good. As for cops, Lenda would be the ultimate. She's hot and she could kick some butt. I'd break the law just so she'd throw me on the ground, cuff me, beat me, mace me, taze me, whatever. I would have the biggest O of my lifetime.

Hollis, "cute girls"....nothing else matters. You know, the genetic imperative, cop or not. Every single biochemical thingy ma jig our little brains do is all directly or indirectly wired to the ongoing propagation of ones immediate gene pool. You see a pretty female cop..your male brain says, oh...look pretty cop girl...good job with benefits....good mothering skills...carry my genes into the future successfully....Thus is the existence of the man on the street. Just don't swing at them with railroad spikes as they will not date you if you do that.

Autie, that's just a cheap ploy, like the new "invisible" cop cars. Sorry boys, but that ramming bar thingy on the grill gives you away every time.

Mother Earth and Farmers Almanac. Ah yes, learning the secrets of true organic gardening and where the moon's gonna be this Friday. And how to make sandals out of old tires. It makes for good chatter on my many trips to the Merc. I still can't find the cigarettes there. Honestly, I've been a steady subscriber to Rolling Stone since 1981. But this time they tried that automatic subscription renewal crap on me so I said bye-bye. Plus, they have gone way too far out into Left Field. I know, I know, that's what they were founded on. I just can't help thinking that Matt Taibbi used to get the hell beaten out of him in High School. Jann, you need to pull 'er back a little more to the middle.

Yep, last I heard, Lenda is still carrying a torch for me. She's about 50 now, and still smokin'! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7w8k1...

That's one of my most endearing Uncle Bob vids, especially at about 3:58.

Any mag with Lenda Murray in it. She was like, 6 time Ms. Olympia. We kinda got to be friends when she stayed in the hotel where I was working. I actually scanned the framed picture she gave me. I'm serious. You can barely read the faded red ink, but she wrote me a really nice message. It says, "Hollis Baby! I want you so bad! I wanna hold you, hug you, kiss you, and put you in a leg lock and roll around on the beach with you!! I need you, Honey! Love and Kisses, Lenda." I was tempted but there's only so much of Hollis to go around, and the hot Hawaiian ladies were lined up deep at the time. There are better pics of her on Google, if you're curious. http://i54.tinypic.com/2hi9dhj.jpg

I figured MyLife would say Highlights, that mag at the dentist office. Goofus or Gallant? I'm a Goofus man myself. Gallant is a boot licking pantywaist.

I love how they have all of these articles about how big bad man is destroying the earth after flipping through pages of ads for cars, SUVs and oil companies.

But, still a great mag.

Is it just me, or are magazine subscription renewal letters becoming more and more ridiculous? Earlier this year I paid for a 2-year renewal on a magazine that still had almost two years left on it. About three months later, my wife did the same thing - same magazine. So this subscription is good through something like July of 2017, and I just received another "Your subscription is running out! Renew Now! Last chance!" letter from them last week.

But to answer the question, my favorites have changed over the years. Notable favorites: Hit Parader, Sports Illustrated, Cycle World, Car Craft, and Stereo Review.

"I bet old Martin Luther rolled over on that one" - autie, Hell autie, you don't know your small catechism. Good old Marty was a hip happening dude for the 1500s. I think he would chuckle. That saying the "full monty" is bastardized pronunciation from the "full Marty"
Yeah, he was in a similar situation.

"And when we canceled, they kept throwing the paper and billing us. "

Same here. And then the phone calls. Constant phone calls. Either wanting me to pay a bill that was already settled or to re-up.

Tough probing question today. My interests and attention flits from one magazine to another, so I can not name one I enjoy the most. That would like asking Brigham Young "which of your 55 wifes do you enjoy the most?"

But allay your fears, for when I enter my chamber of escape, privacy, solitude and sanctuary, to read from a magazine, I can sit down with the reassurance that the walls will stop 5.56 green-tip tungsten penetrator rounds.

"The KC Star does that. I quit subscribing. Treating one's customers like crap is a good way to lose business".

I could not agree more. We quit the Star earlier this year just for that reason. When the carrier handled the billing we did not have a problem for over 20 years, then the Star went to in house accounting and the service went to hell. And when we canceled, they kept throwing the paper and billing us. I know their financial numbers are in bad shape and I am surprised they are still in business.

I will resist the urge to joke about it and Hollis beat be to the punch anyway.

So, in truth, my favorites relate to my hobbies. Lifting weights and playing golf.

I like Muscle and Fitness which is fairly serious body builder magazine. I like Muscle Mag because of the supplement information, but it can be a little trashy (sort of like Hustler to porn magazines). I do not read the Men’s Health anymore because it just fluff and kind of lame (I think it is geared for pretty boys or something).

I also like golf and I read Golf Magazine and Golf Digest. Golf digest is little fluffy or at least a little full of itself, but Golf Magazine is cool.

Esquire - mine Garden Design -ours Johnny's Seed catalogs - mine Prevention - hers BH&G - hers Kansas Magazine - ours

about the Esquire - read it at the barbershop a few years back, had a really great article so I sent in the card & started taking it. They are so ridiculous. Features lotsa Interesting people, but the mag is pretty much full of itself. They do this automatic renewal roll-over thing. Very sneaky. missed opting out the last two years.

Used to love the Reader's Digest. It pays to increase your word power, you know. You can also bend the pages & break the spine to form a little Christmas tree. Spray paint it, throw some glitter on there - best 3rd grade art project ever. except maybe for the paper mache moraccas.

The video version of Frankfurter Weekly had this to say about the never ending condiment debate:

On a different thread. They might not be able to understand why someone would rather fight someone than go to a basketball game, but in the same vane they might not understand why someone wouldn't want to support a bunch of people financially. See, Good lookin out. Know what I am saying?

Why would anyone want to go to a sporting event with people there that are never going to support them financially for being an athlete themselves, artist, writer or privileged position otherwise. I would spend my last dollar out or cut rate pay to go watch someone else do something than buy more tools to work with too. Makes sense to me. I would rather watch someone go to Hawaii than do it myself? You wouldn't? You see it might not be as popular a sport as basketball or football but I play....

Nailed that one, Autie. Sometimes loading is half the fun. Otherwise a good reason to have multiple clips, or magazines, depending on which type of firearm one chooses. Magazines work well with rifles - mostly long barreled- including shotguns. Clips are more appropriate for hand help weapons - although they are still considered a magazine by trues'ts. I think I will allow one of my firearms to eject one from its' magazine tonight. Sorry if awakes you.'
