  1. I started listening while playing games but i stopped playing games last year because it wasnt helping me in anyway other than being an escape from my reality.


    I'd say start off listening while youre gaming and if you might become more interested in learning and start writing while you listen instead. You remember a lot more when you if you take notes rather than just passively listening.

  2. LOL muu. If you don't feel like reading a whole book I recommend audiobooks. It depends if the reader is charismatic but you can go through entire books in 1 day which is awesome if youre like me and get sleepy after reading 10 pages :P


    Seriously though, learning feels amazing. I prefer self help genre at the moment its really helping me grow as a person and gives me lots to talk about in conversations.


    I posted youtube links for each of those books i listed. Theyre complete audiobooks if you wanna sample some and see if you resonate.

  3. Post amazing books!


    The way of the superior man by David Deida


    What is your true purpose in life? What do women really want? What makes a good lover? If you're a man reading this, you've undoubtedly asked yourself these questions-but you may not have had much luck answering them. Until now.


    In The Way of the Superior Man, David Deida explores the most important issues in men's lives-from career and family to women and intimacy to love and spirituality and relationships-to offer a practical guidebook for living a masculine life of integrity, authenticity, and freedom. Join this bestselling author and internationally renowned expert on sexual spirituality for straightforward advice, empowering skills, body practices, and more to help you realize a life of fulfillment, immediately and without compromise.


    "It is time to evolve beyond the macho jerk ideal, all spine and no heart," writes David Deida. "It is also time to evolve beyond the sensitive and caring wimp ideal, all heart and no spine." The Way of the Superior Man presents the ultimate challenge-and reward-for today's man: to discover the 'unity of heart and spine' through the full expression of consciousness and love in the infinite openness of the present moment.





    King, Warrior, Magician, Lover by Moore & Gillette

    Arguing that mature masculinity is not abusive or domineering, but generative, creative, and empowering of the self and others, Moore and Gillette provide a Jungian introduction to the psychological foundations of a mature, authentic, and revitalized masculinity.





    No more Mr Nice Guy by Robert Glover

    Glover's premise is that nice guys have been conditioned by their childhoods and by society to believe that they will be successful only if they make everyone happy and never cause any problems for others. However, this desire for approval results in self-loathing. In other words, nice guys want approval, but don't think they deserve it. This creates internal frustration, since nice guys never try to obtain what they want in life. In addition, the nice guy's desire to obtain approval from everyone (especially women), causes him to actually behave in very un-nice ways. This includes dishonesty (about themselves) and passive-aggressive behavior ("being unavailable, forgetting, being late, not following through...").


    Dr. Glover's prescription involves getting nice guys to recognize that their needs and desires are important, and that to make others happy they must first learn to make themselves happy. One of the primary ways advised in the book to remedy this is for nice guys to learn to embrace and develop their masculine traits, instead of fearing and suppressing them.

    I'm listening to Robert Cheeke on plant yourself podcast and sounds like his new book is awesome I gotta get a copy. Loved the motivation and integrity reinforced in Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness cant wait to read the new one!

  4. Western medicine says moderate masturbation will benefit one's health, and semen is a little protein plus a good deal water, it counts for little to the body. This evil theory is really harmful. It misleads young guys lose the vigilance to masturbation, it entices them to try, and get into the habit finally, the childish guys could not restrain masturbation, and step onto the dead way of losing Jing, Qi and Shen.


    Masturbation will harm one's body and spirit badly, what masturbation consumed is not only some protein and water, but also the essential matter of life - Jing. When Jing lost in excess, your marrow will be barren, and you will become old in an earlier time and die young. As for the body being extreme weak, it is merely the second expression.


    Body nourished by blood and Qi, blood and acquired Qi come from food and drink mainly. The spare blood and Qi will be transformed into Jing in deep sleep, and stored in kidney area and inside bones, to prepare for untimely needs. If ones stores Jing more than that is consumed, it is the guarantee of his/her health and longevity. If one consumes Jing more than that is stored, it is the reason of decrepitude and ephemerality. Masturbation and sexual act both will consume Jing; however, good sexual act can harmonize Yin and Yang, that can benefit the lovers some, but masturbation has consumption only, it is worse than sexual act. The cumulation of this supernormal consumption of Jing will result in one's life quality reduced and the death will be shifted to an earlier time.


    Masturbation will not only harm one's life force of body, but also harm one'semotion. It will cause one being listless, getting frailty, being in two minds, being infirm of purpose, being irascible and verjuiced, and being distrustful and fearful. When anything crops, some will attack rashly, some will shrink back, the wankers are short of patience and perseverance, and lack the confidence and courage of being sure of victory. These are all the bad results of being weak of Jing, and accordingly, it could not produce enough Qi.


    Masturbation will touch one's intelligence too. Perennial masturbations will damage one's faculty of memory and thought obviously, if you are a student, you will find that your ability of study falling short of your wishes, and your study achievement will go down quickly. This is a result of lacking Jing, and it could not produce enough Qi, so that your Shen (mind and spirit) could not get enough nourishment.


    Masturbation activities have high possibility of addiction. Once get an addiction, it will be very hard to bridle it. That's why wankers feel obviously uncomfortable after masturbation activity, but they are still unremitting.


    Masturbation activities draw one's energy reserve by an easy way, it makes one cannot start a lash-up response when he meets a sudden accident. It will also cause many chronic diseases, and could not be cured for a long time, but get worse and worse.


    Masturbation overdraws one's multiplying Qi in advance, it will cause one's procreation ability goes down hugely, even if one can procreate later, the baby will be unhealthy.


    Masturbation is not cureless, so long as you can realize the harms of masturbation, make up your mind to give up it, and get the right way to do, you will be the victor finally. Wuji Standing is a good way to support yourself; it can help you away from masturbation. This simple practice can not only help you away from masturbation, but also cure the bad results caused by masturbation activities, and improve you life quality. Furthermore, they will also lead you approach the right way of Great Tao.

    Nice post.

  5. I just re watched the fight and the first 2 rounds were Mac's. 2nd could have been a draw at best but Mac really owned the last 2 mins of the round completely.


    No way could Gomi have won 2 rounds. He won he final round 10-9. That fucking sucks for Mac but at least he got 40k for fight of the night and Dana White said he thought Mac won.


    I hope there's a rematch.

  6. Thailand would be a nice place to live. Lots of Buddhist temples there you could even consider becoming a monk. Meditating till you see your new path in life.


    Sensory deprivation tanks are getting popular in usa now. Good for meditating deep when you don't have the time it takes to shut out all your surroundings through practice.


    Joe Rogan explains the tank





    Have you considered doing a podcast Robert? That would be something I'd tune into. You could just set up a couple webcams and broadcast on ustream.


    I bet you could get on Joe Rogans podcast if you twitter him. He had vegan triathlete Rich Roll on there a couple weeks ago and Mac Danzig so I think you would be the man to go on there next.

    Joe's a paleo guy and he has had paleo guru's on there and i feel like Mac and Rich left a lot of things out there about vegans.

  7. hey c.o., Durian rider is a raw vegan triathlete who runs a site called 30bananas a day.He also has a youtube channel which is successful, I believe he is a youtube partner.


    And if you don't already you should listen to the Joe Rogan podcast on youtube for learning to be a comedian. 70% of the guests he has on there are comedians and he is too.


    Lot's of stories about when they started out in comedy and tips and VERY entertaining.


    ^playlist of the first 250 of his podcasts ^


    I recommend starting out with anyone of them with duncan trussel hes been on the podcast 12 times and is everyones favorite guest even joes.


    ^duncan trussel podcasts^


    Good luck with your comedy and I hope it turns into a successful career ^__^


    ps. i know they avg 2 hours each but its worth listening.hard work and dedication is key to everything!

  8. Just for the record, they use naked men too. Why is being naked for a good cause bad at all. If it was just him giving an interview it wouldn't attract as much attention.

    Maybe because of that extra attention it reached more people who would have otherwise bought fur.


    I like how they mix the video up with actual footage of cruelty so people who just came for him get tricked into seeing what really happens.


    Its a good thing. No harm done. Maybe some religious people get mad because it's lewd or something....







    And i think using funds for spreading the message is very important. Because it stops the problem at it's source.The people.

    I want to open or help fund an animal sanctuary some day but it's not solving the problem, it's just trying to clean up others messes.

    PETA is attacking the root of it all. Power to them.

  9. They also killed 1,911 cats and dogs last year and about 28,000 in the past 14 years. In 2010, 84% were killed within 24 hours. They claim the animals are too sick or injured, but haven't provided real evidence. The only public evidence and testimony indicates many of the animals were perfectly fine. Their employees have also been caught disposing improperly of the bodies, and their primary facility doesn't meet their own shelter guidelines.


    In their defense, there's no doubt that they take in a higher percentage of unadoptable animals, and they've never claimed to be no-kill, but they also give the impression to people leaving animals with them that there's a reasonable chance of adoption. Their main "shelter" is, in fact, a euthanasia clinic, and they need to be up-front about it. They also need to get a better handle on their employees, because I know much of this behavior is condemned by the organization as a whole.


    they dont have a choice.how many more neuter your animals campaigns do they need to run.The problem is the breeders and shitty owners.they give their problems to peta and then complain about how they handled it.


    They are the #1 animal rights group and have helped spread animal rights more than anyone.


    Should spend more time talking about the meat industry. Sometimes people can become to preachy.Picking at their allies.tssk tssk

  10. The main reasons typically being that -


    1. Many view PETA's use of mostly-nude women in frequent events and advertisements as sexist and degrading. Think of the "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" campaigns using famous women with barely any covering, or the infamous "Lettuce Ladies" who they'll send out to events who use only a bit of...you guessed it...lettuce to cover their private parts. Or, naked women painted like tigers put into cages at circus protests. PETA has a tendency to use semi or fully nude females as a way to gain attention, and somehow, they always seem to avoid using mostly-naked men (which would at least make them consistent in exploiting nudity in general, not JUST female nudity). While I'm sure many non-vegan men have been titillated by images of mostly naked women, it's a safe bet that not a single one decided to go vegan because of sexual imagery used in a PETA campaign.


    2. Others think that PETA spends too much of their funds running absurd ad campaigns just to draw attention to themselves instead of working to help the animals. For example, PETA will make a public proposition for something that they know won't happen (like their attempt to get the Green Bay Packers football team to rename itself due to it's origin coming from the meat packing industry), throwing money out in such ways just to make sure that their name gets in the news again, but knowing nothing will come of it. Just simple "shock tactics" like that are enough to put many people off who would rather see them focusing on promoting veganism and animal rights instead of silly "Look at me!!!" ad campaigns that just make a mockery of the movement once the mainstream media picks up on it.


    3. Many people are put off by PETA's ability to be completely misanthropic in showing zero compassion for some who have gotten ill or been killed due to implied animal product consumption or other events. For example, many were upset at PETA's preposterous billboard campaign that poked humor at former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani's prostate cancer, attributing it to milk consumption without any real proof that it was a direct cause of his health problems. Or, the campaign they ran after someone was attacked by a shark in Florida that essentially inferred that "you go in the ocean, you get what you deserve for being in their territory", ignoring that a young woman lost a limb in that event just for going swimming. Or, the time they ran another wacko campaign in Canada after the case of the pig farmer who was a serial killer, equating the killing of his 17 (or whatever the number was) victims to pigs going to slaughter, being completely callous to the feelings of the families who lost loved ones to such a terrible person.


    4. Some think that the combination of points 1, 2 and 3, along with other factors, put more people off to veganism and animal rights than they help to convert over to a compassionate lifestyle. Endorsing sexism and misanthropy isn't something that's welcomed by most vegans, so that's why PETA is on many people's blacklist of organizations they don't stand behind.


    I'm sure there are others, but those are always the top 3 talking points I've seen come up over the past decade in relation to why PETA is pretty well removed from the bulk of the vegan and AR community.


    Yeah, well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

  11. "3. When people ask me how I maintain my vegan diet when I travel to remote places that don’t seem exceptionally vegan-friendly such as Alabama and Mississippi, or France or Poland, I am quick to remind people that every small and large town I have ever been to anywhere in the world, has grocery stores and some have farmers markets. One doesn’t have to find a vegetarian restaurant to find vegetarian food. Grocery stores are stocked full of produce. Go eat it."


    This is how i would go about it.Can't be fooled by wholefoods.
