Replace lucha libre w MMA, then.

The fact that violence isn't officially sanctioned by the rules of hockey doesn't mean it's not there culturally. Why else would the NHL be so scared of concussion research?

Point taken re rugby, but it's still not totally clean

lol bullshit. Sounds nice until you consider rugby, lucha libre, ice hockey.

Violence in sports is definitely not a uniquely American phenomenon.

Adding on: please please please take lessons if it's at all possible. I taught myself for ~2 years before finding a real drum teacher and I had to do so much unlearning. Not to mention how much more quickly I progressed with my teacher's guidance: I can't afford lessons now and my skills have almost totally stagnated.

    Do you wake up with songs bouncing around in your head, hubski?

I have never woken up without one.

The song from this morning:

I've not, but I've seen a few of Herzog's documentaries. They take time for sure, but I think I'm warming up to him.

To Ireland!

I almost added a link to the movie's wikipedia page to my post :)

Only wish I could find the film somewhere online...

    The reason working class black voters aren't part of the conversation is because they did what was expected.

    If black voters want the Democrats to pay attention, stop with the blind support. Vote third party.

I may come back later to respond to your last paragraph.

Where in this piece do you read Coates "yelling at white people"?

We have Brisk Mate now though! Or at least we do in the southern US, might be worth looking for for you.

It's not the same as Club Mate obviously (which Ive only found once at this weird ass gas station by my old school) but it is still a Mate-based energy drink thing.
