Paleo in the News

October 18, 2011


(featured image is Primal Girl‘s banner, used because that’s where I found these videos, thanks to Richard Nikoley of Free the Animal pointing the way, and she’s in two of the five videos.) In case anyone missed it (which is quite likely), CBS News San Francisco did a 5-part look at Paleo living, and it was approached […]

Winter is Coming. . . .

October 13, 2011


Fuck you, Starks. This is Canada and when winter approach’eth, it fucking approach’eth.  Every year, too, not every 10.

May 27, 2011


When I was little and living in the States, I used to shoot hoops with my Poppa (maternal grandfather). Being 7 or so, I loved to try different shots like throwing the ball up and over my head while standing with my back to the hoop, hook shots, etc. — anything silly that could make […]
