Reviving this topic briefly to ask a question that recently came up: Does anyone here practice any sort of Yoga or Tai-Chi?

I've done a bit of reading (though I wouldn't actually call it in depth), but before committing myself to either one, I'd like to know if anyone here has any personal experience of either of these, and ifso, what they can tell me, recommend for me?

On a side note, another hobby I've recently discovered to be great fun: Baking. Cakes, bread, anything goes. And it's great fun as well! Esepcially anything with chocolate.

A little of each for me.
It's hard for me to judge really, since I was taking Yoga with this crystal-healing new-age lady in her 50s, and I took Tai Chi from a martial artist/sysadmin who spends his vacation months living with the Maori to learn their secrets on how to beat people up with sticks.

I'd say, find a good, non-dogmatic teacher. That'll help with the weaknesses of any one approach.

Falcon, two questions: What martial art, and have you gotten Yuri's Revenge?
Ok, three questions: Who do you like to play as in RAII?
Four words, and only those that play RAII in here will understand.
"My truck is LOADED!"

I have _the_ most devastating, non-superweapon attack with them...ask me if you want to know, I'll PM ya.  Grin

I perform quite a bit with a local band, and yes, we have wrote a few numbers. A friend of mine, whose in our band signed a deal with a record company. I can't find the link right now for the band website, but I'll post it on this thread later.

Well, my friend's brother wanted a tatoo, real bad. He actually needed one. That's right friends. The man had a desire that needed to be tamed.
So he went to the parlor, and decided that he should get something at least a little inoffensive, since he'd be "stuck with it for the rest of his life". So why not a tomato? I mean, who has anything against tomatoes?

Anyways, there's a music download above the whole text area. What did you think of it?

Either of those might work.
