  1. Thanks for ones blog loaded with so quite a few information. Stopping by your blog helped me to acquire what I was looking for.

    Heh – I didn’t realise there was a cover of ‘This Woman’s Work’ out there, especially by a guy (though listening to it for the first time, sounds like he does a great falsetto). I see it’s not exactly recent, as Google tells me he first did his version for MTV back in 1997, but then as I rarely venture past about 1993 musically, not too surprising I missed it. ;p

    Are you on, by the way? Always the first question I ask when the topic of music pops up, as I like comparing musical taste. I’m here.

    I look forward to reading the rest of the blog, having followed through from BJJ Grrl’s list.

  3. In my opinion one of the best forms of martial arts is Brazilian Jujitsu and one of the best teachers is Marcus Soares who has a Vancouver jujitsu club and is considered one of the best instructors in he world. He is a direct student of Carlson Gracie and is the highest ranking BJJ black belt under Carlson with 7 degrees. I think BJJ and grappling id the best for mixed martial arts.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
