The drastic increase in running since I got to Thailand has led to a revival of my love of melo-death for "keep your ass moving, you pansy" value.

I tried to post what I consider to be an excellent musical selection but evidently I'm functioning under the burden of a 'probationary status' of sorts.
I'll return when the **** blows over and I have attained 'regular guy' standing.

Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

Not my usual fare, and in no way an endorsement of anything Idol related. Regardless, heard this on triple j the other morning and was struck by the honesty in Matt Corby's mea culpa:
Dum spiro, spero.
Tada gan iarracht.

when I have the inclination and time, I've found this thread to be fun and instructive; some good music out there...
