UFC 106 - My Predictions
Gina Carano POW!

Forrest Griffin vs Tito Ortiz

This is a tough one to call because there are a lot of unknown factors: Tito's back surgery and being out of the cage for over a year. Was Tito's back problem really a factor in his last fight with Forrest? If so, how much? Is ring rust a factor for a veteran like Tito? Forrest taking the fight on semi-short notice and his loss against Anderson Silva. Is the Silva fight going to mess with his confidence or motivate him?

All these are huge x-factors in this fight. But if you give Tito the benefit of the doubt about his back and don't factor in ring rust and you give Forrest the benefit of the doubt and say the Silva fight is a motivator and he's a better fighter since the last time he fought Tito, it comes down to this:

If Forrest can fight a smart, strategic fight like he did against Rampage, he can win. He's gotta avoid Tito's takedowns and use a lot of strike/kick combos. Forrest's leg kick is a big weapon & he used it to cut down Rampage. Tito knows this and has said he'll take him down every time he throws the leg kick -which is a ridiculous statement but hey it's Tito. But that being said, Forrest wants to be careful not to telegraph the leg kick and perhaps throw it after a jab to avoid Tito's takedowns.

If Tito is able to take Forrest down at will, Tito will ground & pound his way to victory. If Forrest can keep it standing, I see Forrest's confidence growing as the fight goes on and capitalizing on a failed Tito takedown and ground & pounding to victory. I know decision seems to be the more obvious choice especially for a Griffin victory but I think that Forrest is going to have to worry about the takedown as long as the fight is standing and a good strategy would be to try and sprawl away from Tito's double leg takedown and get on top on him. Plus if Forrest makes it to the third round he's gonna look to erase the bad taste of the Silva fight with an impressive finish.


PREDICTION: Griffin via TKO (strikes) RD 3





Koscheck vs Johnson

Kos is great at coming in a pushing the pace and bullying guys. I think Rumble Johnson is even more aggressive and explosive and is gonna keep Kos in a counter or survival mode and take him out of his game.

Really tough fight to call though and Kos's experience could win out over Johnson's fury.
But I'm gonna give it to Rumble early in the second or late in the first.

PREDICTION: Johnson via KO (punch) Rd 2





Thiago vs Volkmann

Don't know much about Volmann but he seems like a tough dude. I don't think he'll get steamrolled but I'm gonna have to go with Thiago's experince on this one.

PREDICTION: Thiago via Decision (unan)






Cane vs Nogeuira

No idea. Cane is a bad ass but them Nog bros aren't easy to knock out. I'm gonna give it to little Nog and his big jujitsu.

PREDICTION: Little Nog via Submisson (Guillotine) Rd 2





Amir Sadollah vs Phil Baroni

This is another fight really hard to call. Sadollah's got the jujitsu and is a crafty fighter. then again, he's got a suspect chin and Baroni hits really fucking hard. I think Amir can win the fight if he uses his kick boxing to keep Baroni at bay, tire him out and wait for him to make a mistake that he can capitalize on (like leaving his arm out for an armbar like CB Dolloway did TWICE agaist Amir!) but that is a pretty big IF. Baroni's been training with a new camp which means maybe he'll come in with a strategy for once. Also Baroni's wrestling is underrated as is his endurance. Yeah, he doesn't hit as hard and furious in the 2nd and 3rd rounds but I think the perception that Baroni is worthless beyond the first round is very exaggerated.

I like Amir and I actually like Phil in the last year or so as he really seems to have been humbled by his many recent defeats but at the end of the day, I'm gonna say Amir will have a tough time avoiding Phil's haymakers for long enough to swing the advantage in his favor.


PREDICTION: Baroni via KO (Punch) RD 2





and without explaination he's 2 undercard picks:

Sanders vs Davis
Davis via TKO (strikes) RD 1

Grove vs Rosholt
Rosholt via TKO (strikes) RD 2

A Visit from Johnny Smiles
me 09
deadman
Friends,

I'm working on making a short film called "A Visit From Johnny Smiles" from a script I wrote. It's a dark comedy about a debt collector for a bookie who, despite his job, happens to be a really, really nice guy. He might have to break your leg but he'll feel *really* bad about it.

We have a producer, Grant Stoner and two really great actors on board so far.

Nick Lanier as Johnny Smiles ( http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0486834/ )
and
Dave Vescio as Dennis the deadbeat ( http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2057822/ )

We've been fortunate to have come up with some great deals and donations on time and equipment. Unfortunately, there still comes a price tag. Even with a bare bones crew, covering meals and enough for everyone's gas and a couple of bucks adds up.

Our budget is currently around $1,500. And we're hoping to shoot it in December and have the DVD done by Jan.

This is my plea to you! We're looking for potential "investors" and donations. I'm not asking for handouts. you'll get something for your investment -at the very least a DVD.
There are 4 levels you can participate with.
For a donation of at least $20 you will get a DVD of the film.
For at least $50, you get all of that plus an invite to a screening party and a special thanks credit.
For at least $100, you get all of that plus EXECUTIVE PRODUCER credit and profit participation (if any).
For at least $500, you get all that as well as a background role in the film. (of course you'd have to be available to be on set the day of the shoot, and is limited to the first 5 people)

If you want to invest more or even the whole $1500, we'll work out something REALLY special!

Please help support independent film! We are extremely excited about this project & plan to submit it to festivals, put it up online, etc.
Wouldn't you love to be a part of that?

I'm sending this out en mass and hoping for the best. If you can't afford to donate anything, I totally understand. Seriously, don't sweat it. Obviously, I'm broke ass myself -thus asking for your help. So, again, i totally understand and there's no need to apologize if you can't help out.



To make donations, you can pay via paypal to tom@missinglabel.com
Be sure to include the address you want the DVD mailed to.

Thanks!

The Genius of VISION
nick nora asta
deadman
Just when I think my time spent on the internet is waste, I find this and it all becomes worth it.

"Beedogs.com is the premier online repository for pictures of dogs in bee costumes."
BEEDOGS.COM!!!!!
Somebody created A WHOLE WEBSITE dedicated to DOGS dressed up as BEES!!!!
Doesn't it fill you with a childlike glee and make you feel that somehow, because of this, humanity is ultimately good and will be OKAY?!

I ask you my fellow humans... look at this:



And know that there are hundreds of photos at beedogs.com of dogs dressed like bees and tell me, don't you just feel in your gut "Hooray for freedom!"

And while seeing Anne Geddes make millions off of stupid photos of babies in costumes makes me sick.... Someone creating a website of dogs (SPECIFICALLY) in BEE costumes... makes me glad to be alive. If it were just dogs in costumes, it would be WEAK and saccharine sweet but the great vision of saying "NO! ONLY BEE COSTUMES!".... it's a thing of beauty.

Go forth, my friends, and enjoy a world in which BEEDOGS.COM exists!

Okay so, the game is to come up with characters, particular roles... not just the actors who are playing them. I'm leaving out TV here. Here's mine... or the ones I could think of... Try it in your own blog, kids, it's fun.





Alabama as played by Patricia Arquette in True Romance.

Annoying shit: part one.


(reposted from myspace blog)

Seriously, things that are unavoidable like long lines and shit or honest mistakes like when the poor kid who gets paid 2 bucks an hour after tax messes up your order and all you have to do is point it out and it's fixed... that kinda stuff doesn't annoy me at all. A few of the things that DO annoy me are presented here for your blog-o-tainment.



* Words or phrases repeated incessantly without the intent of being funny.


Car dealership commercials are especially guilty of this crime against humanity. It's always in that painfully irritating Top 40 DJ / Monster truck show announcer voice.
"At BIG DAN'S TOYOTA-CHEVROLET we've got deals that'll put your grandma in a coma. Come on Down to BIG DAN'S TOYOTA-CHEVROLET and we'll send you away in a car or truck with NO MONEY DOWN! At BIG DAN'S TOYOTA-CHEVROLET, we'll give you coffee, donuts and a handjob. No money? No job? No limbs? A Nasty meth addiction? NO PROBLEM at BIG DAN'S TOYOTA-CHEVROLET! At BIG DAN'S TOYOTA-CHEVROLET, we love you long time...."
If you fucking say BIG DAN'S TOYOTA-CHEVROLET, one more time I'm gonna firebomb the place and gut Big Dan like a trout!!!



There was also an abomination of a weight watcher's commercial where some chick kept saying "Look at me!" "Look at me! I lost 12 pounds! Look at me! I fit into these jeans again! Look at me! I'm 12 pounds less and 12 times the sexy! LOOK AT ME!"
Look at me! I'm the most annoying person on the face of the earth! Look at me! Christ Almighty, whyyyy won't you looook at meeeeheehhehe!!??


This can also happen in everyday life, often when someone is trying to explain something and they keep saying 'basically". "Basically, if you want to have sex with your best friend's dad, all you basically need, is some roofies, some lube and basically any sort of beverage. Basically, you find out what their dad's favorite beverage is. Basically..."
Dude, if you say "basically" one more time, I'm going to shank you in the junk!




* People who say and/or believe the stupidest shit.


Okay, now I say stupid shit all the time but I'm just being a jackass. Sometimes people believe this shit with utter conviction and sincerity!

An example close to home is those goddamn people reposting things like "If you don't repost this within 8 minutes and 14 seconds, no one will ever love you and you'll get crabs from a toilet seat but if you do repost it, you'll be the next Miss America (even if your [sic] a guy)" and then it comes with this dumb disclaimer like "Sorry, guys, I know these things are bullshit but I don't want crabs and I could really use the Miss America money." Wha...? HUH?! I'm going to post a bulletin that says "Now that you've read this, if you ever repost a chain bulletin again, karma will give you and everyone you care about bird flu, acne and a lifetime of bad haircuts and monkeys will shit in your favorite hat." What will they do when they get another chain bulletin? Which one do they blindly, slavishly obey?! Hopefully, the stress will give them an aneurism. Please, for the love of Mindy Cohn, stop with that shit!


Another example is stupid logic like "If a guy is a good dancer, that means he's good in bed" Why? 'Cause his hips work and he can move in sync to a 4/4 beat that just about any conscious living being could follow? C'mon now! Or "That guy's got big hands, you know what that means!" Ummm... His gloves are also big? He's got a genetic edge at handball? His liquid hand soap expenses are higher than average? I give up.


Also, annoying are trite beliefs and sentiments like "Everything happens for a reason" -but truth be told, I like this particular one because it gives me carte blanche to pimp slap 'em and say "You're right. and the reason there? You're a goddamn halfwit! Good day, sir!" and storm off.

** Note: You should always say "Good Day, sir!" right after you slap someone and right before briskly exiting. It's just proper.
