Some ants screamed while rainbows burned holes in his retina and syrup from the cane in the field dripped fire down his throat. Nothing tasted good anymore but he was alive, maybe more than ever.

Reposting in honor of Froning’s fourth “Fittest Man in the World” title. You don’t have to be into CrossFit to get a lot out of this - which is actually kind of the point of CrossFit.
Again. Froning - Fittest in the World. I’m honored to have been there to see this man reach deep and come from behind to claim his fourth title. Physical fitness is not enough in this sport - it’s his ability to focus, take one breath when everyone else is taking three, and forge on that separates him from the others. It’s uncanny. #crossfitgames2014 (at StubHub Center.)
Congrats to the amazing Camille Leblanc-Bazinet for taking the women’s title - long time coming for this Canadian athlete making her 5th consecutive games appearance.
And congratulations to the other competitors. I saw a level of fitness out there that has to be seen to be believed. Just awesome.
Umm… Swizz Beatz waking up the house and a trio of Aussie CFers drinking it up - along with cheap American beer. #crossfitgames2014 @luvcynthiaenid (at StubHub Center)

I’m totally digging the work of Cornelia Parker right now. If art truly is finding order in chaos, then is the artist’s certainty to fail in depicting chaos - by virtue of their participation - a fete accompli? Can an artist be both observer and cat, as entirely separate entities?
Hello world, nice to see you again.
I’m squeezing the fucking life out of every remaining day of this summer like the last drop of water from a bandana at high noon in death valley.
I’d forgotten I could feel this sick.
