    The music is so loud it always drowns out my headphones so I have to listen to their inane gym trance music.

    It's so lame. It's such a chore to go. I can't wait until I have a long term partner and I can get fat and not have to go anymore
    The whole reason I started going again was because I was starting to get fat and I was tired all the time. I started working out really hard to feel better but, come to find out, it was a real health problem that had me feeling ****ty. I just kept working out though because I liked the way I was looking again.

    I'm serious...hours of gym time per week is directly proportionate to the number of years younger you look.

    And if you go every day, you meet people and start doing things other than just boring weight routines with them. It becomes a social network after a few months.

    I guess there could be the possibility where self-awareness could just not be there at all, but those are the members whom I'd considered are under an unusual amount of mind altering drugs; I.e. Galenrox. In the culture we have goign on in America we see all these "slamming" bodies, and people who have spent way too much time not only in the gym but also in front of the mirror, and in the supplement section of their grocery store.

    I used to do a bunch of weight lifting, but I finally realized that the human body is just not designed to build muscle whenever one wants to build muscle. It seems the constant struggle of the body to stretch the muscle, tear it, and "replace it" buts too much strain on the body itself. But, I do realize the importance of those who do not have very "healthy" working lives, where they sit in a cubicle all day and they have to exercise in order to stay "in-shape" To suffer torments on their muscle in order for aesthetics.

    I stopped my extreme working out routine when I heard this story of a guy who lived in my home-town, who owned a gym suddenly dying from a heart attack because he was too big. No, not because he was obese, but because his muscles were too developed and they were just putting an extraorindary amount of stress on his heart.

    After that I started running a lot more. Running has always been my supplement to stressful times, and to stay releatively healthy; my dad got me into it, as he's an avid runner and he owns a running-shoe store. This past running season (for me running season are any times when it's not frigidly cold. So mid-spring to mid-Fall, I maxed at a half-marathon. I am going to attempt the marathon this next season, hoping I can get back into a good routine.

    Some numbers? Well. I started off college at 5 feet 10 inches and 230 lbs, but now, as a sophomore, I am about 6 feet and 170 lbs.
    It's also true that a body that is fit from just being active as a lifestyle is much more appealing than a body that is fit from just being at the gym 25 hours a week.

    Re: How do you feel about your own personal physique/figure?

    Well here's the thing, any workout I do in the gym is significantly supplemented by the amount of utility biking I do. Two and from my job is maybe three miles, plus maybe another 1 or 2 visiting people or getting dinner or whatever.

    Here's my actual secret to remaining competitive as a 34W 5'9 in a 28W 6' world: just look different. Everyones actually really bored with "hot" guys so if you look radically different (and do it well) you'll get a lot of attention.

    It sure is easier to pierce your nose and shave your head then it is to lose 15 lbs and grow 6 inches.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Yeah well that attitude begins to change the closer you barrel toward 30.

    But you are right...I find myself physically fascinated with guys that look different much quicker than I do with guys that look like they came out of the West Hollywood factory standard mold.

    I'm definitely going to be a real lame "weekend warrior".

    Punk as ****: M-F 5PM-2AM and on Saturdays and Sundays.

    In the subculture community there's a phenomenon known as "the rockabilly retirement plan" wherein people from whatever subculture, exactly as they hit 30, have to stop being in whatever subculture they're in and become rockabilly.

    You MUST grow a small pomp, sideburns and buy some flaming dice or pinup-girl-devil-sitting-in-a-martini-glass shirts.

    They take away your studded leather jackets and replace them with plain ones and don't let you roll-up your pant legs anymore to show off your boots. In fact, you're lucky if they let you keep your boots. A lot of times you have to give them in to the Subculture Aging Authority and have them replaced with leopard print brothel-creepers.

    So I guess I'll be hitting the gym in 8 years.

    Personality is so 17th Century.

    I'm pretty sure in the 17th century they were more interested in your last name.

    I was never much into any subculture fashion so I guess I dodged that one.

    I have found since moving to LA that my fashion is expressing itself more in my jackets and shirt combinations. I look great in a tight Christian Audigier print tee-shirt with a leather sportcoat, copper washed jeans from from express and these ****ing awesome half boots from Guess.

    That's what I am wearing today.

    You can't dress like that in the northeast, you have to wear muted colors or the Miserable Police will arrest you to not doing your share to make the entire area of the country as depressing looking as possible.

    A purple shirt with glitter and skulls on it would be grounds for permanent banishment. Unless you're black. Actually come to think of it, black guys around here LOVE Christian Audigier. It does kind of fit their style. I think maybe it's their revenge for white people stealing hoodies from them.

    Are they wearing Christian Audigier or are they wearing Ed Hardy by Christian Audigier? There is a distinct difference. I won't touch Ed Hardy. It's way too much...almost garrish in it's attempt but something about the Christian Audigier line is hot even though it's the same principle.

    That Stephen Sprouse tribute line that Christian Audigier did for Louis Vutton is way to dangerously close to bringing the 80's back again though.
