Quick Notes from UFC 139 Shogun vs Henderson

Great to have the UFC local again.  HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA.

  • I had it a draw for the Shogun/Hendo fight. I gotta watch it again. Instant classic. 
  • Cung Le fight seemed like a premature stoppage but you gotta air in the side of fighter safety.
  • Good win for Faber. He won in stunning fashion. I had picked Bowles to win.
  • Tom Lawlor got put to sleep by Chris Weidman. Tom dressing up as Steven Seagal at weigh ins was hilarious.
  •  Cool to see a lot of peeps I haven't seen in a while at this event.

86 Corolla Motor Swap

I stopped by my friend's place yesterday to watch him and his brother swap in a motor for his 86 Corolla, a car popularized by the anime called Initial D. All went well until we hit a little snag. It was a bit frustrating and much time was wasted but we managed to get over that hurdle in time for Wing Stop lol.

I felt the need to snap a few photos with my new Panasonic GF2 + 20mm f1.7 lens because Slickdeals directed me to a link where I could get 25 4x6 photos for free at the Walgreens site using a coupon code. Last week I printed 40 for free courtesy of Slickdeals once again. This came at a perfect time as I've been snapping photos like crazy as of late.

Here are the photos. I'm seriously enjoying the new camera and lens.
