Michael Phelps back in pool, training for 2012... →
Watch out, world. You were warned. The world may be 70% water, but Phelps is 100% BEAST.
Groupon Deal - Tix To LA Symphony!
Jackpot! Just scored a Groupon deal for tickets to the Los Angeles Philharmonic. I’ve wanted to go for a long time, not only because the building is so cool, but the conductor (Gustavo Dudamel) is a total boss and really young (30, I think). I got 3 tickets for 75% off (yes, you read that right) for this Thursday night. I’m not sure what the show is yet, but I’m sure it’s...

Ders' Thoughts: People Who Are Anti - Vaccine
It’s been brought to my attention (by the show Frontline) that there are people out there who are anti - vaccine and who believe that vaccines cause autism and other disorders. This is total propaganda and scientists have never found a link between vaccines and autism or anything else. Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy (pictured above) need to use their celebrity for the good of the public...

two-dollars27cents asked: My college gives out free flu shots, I'm getting mine soon too, FO FREE!
Time For Flu Shots
Gonna take Blake and Adam with me to Walgreens after work today so we can all get flu shots. I get mine every October 17th and this year I’m making them do it so that come flu season our house isn’t a cesspool of germs and sickness. I think that people who avoid getting flu shots or vaccinations (for themselves or their children) are irresponsible and delusional (more on this...
Ders' Picks - TURNING IT AROUND!
Nailed it. Well, went .500. Turkey on wheat bread. Right down the fairway. But what’s important is that my two highest-confidence picks WON. World Champ Packers, Lochte of the Week on the Raiders, and we’re back in the black. So if you only trusted me at my best, like I do, you won big $$$ this weekend. Or were highly entertained, since gambling outside of certain pre-approved...
An Addition To My Art Collection
I found this “Spagett” poster at the comic book store near our house and scooped it up right away. Not sure if this is a poster for a new Steven Spielberg movie or an old one that got shelved or something, but either way it has to be a collector’s item. The clerk at the store kept laughing and asking me if I was a Spagett fan, and he even said “spooked ya” when he...
Working Like A Charm
Really engrossed in the Kama Sutra and all it has shown me. I’ve learned a lot of exciting new positions and a surprising amount about ancient Hindu culture. There are also two fascinating sections about “acquiring a wife” and “the duties and privileges of marriage.” Granted, these were written in a very different era and don’t really apply anymore,...
New & Improved DERS' PICKS - Week 6 Edition!
Want to get to know her better? Use my picks to win the money and influence that’ll make it happen… all at the click of a button. We’re back on track here at Holmvik HQ. My sub-excellent picks the last two weeks were the result of my straying from what got me to the dance, mainly picking which of the two teams monickers would win in a real fight, doing any kind of research,...
Too Talented For My Own Good
I’ve always thought modeling was easy because babies could do it, but now I know why they excel at it; they don’t have to deal with the business side of things. Three voicemails from Kyle Walsh last night, looking to see if I wanted to come in for some new headshots/body shots/free nude modeling seminar. I wasn’t born yesterday, I know this is how they get you; give you the...
The Art Of Love
Had to swing by the mall to pick up my laptop, which needed a really thorough cleaning after Adam defiled it (still can’t believe he did that. What a sick fuck). Anyway, not only do I have my laptop back, but I also came across The Kama Sutra (pictured up top) and decided to purchase a copy in anticipation for what might play out with Bunny - the young lady who poked me on Facebook...
Bunny Anderson, a very special lady from my past just poked me on Facebook. No big deal. She also sent me a message where she wrote that she wants to “reconnect.” Obviously I’m freaking out right now. We never dated, per se, but we always were totally into each other and it was one of those things where we were never single at the same time. More specifically, I was usually...
