    Re: Close Up and Personal: Faces in the Crowd, Pt. 2

    Thanks, WKS.

    Actually, the first and second photos were shot while I was at a standstill waiting for traffic to pass by (for over five minutes -- I thought it would never end!) and, in the third, I kept my eye on the road, pointed the cell phone at the accident scene, and hoped for a decent photo as I drove past.

    Regards,


    Juan

    Hillarious: Best Phone Prank!

    One of my friends forwarded me this hillarious handling of a telemarketing call. You have to hear it to believe it:

    Solution to Telemarketing Calls Link

    I received this on the tail of a stay at a hospital, where I'd gone in for chest pains. After extensive testing, it turned out the problem was acid reflux. Now, I have to be more consistent with diet, exercise and take some pills.

    Thank God it wasn't my heart!

    Juan, I'm posting this article here because if I post it anywhere else it will probably get deleted

    BoxingInsider.com
    Talkin’ Boxing with Golota-Trainer Sam Colonna
    Published by BoxingInsider

    By Scoop Malinowski

    On a three-fight win streak, Heavyweight contender Andrew Golota is training hard in Chicago for a crucially important Nov. 7 clash with Ray Austin. If Golota wins without injury, it has been reported he will likely qualify for a late Dec./ early Jan. WBA world title opportunity against Nikolai Valuev. Boxinginsider.com spoke with Golota’s long-time trainer Sam Colonna a week before Team Golota’s departure to Chengdu, China.

    Boxinginsider: Sam, can you tell us what is the state of the still going strong Golota Express?

    Sam Colonna: We’re getting hard workouts, Andrew is training very hard. I wish we were ten years younger, you know [laughs]?

    Boxinginsider: Who is he sparring?

    Sam Colonna: He’s sparring with Marcellus Brown, this guy D-Ron Johnson and Jason Robinson.

    Boxinginsider: How is he looking?

    Sam Colonna: I mean, he has his days, you know, when he looks good, he has his days, you know, when he isn’t looking as good as I want him to. But in all, he’s in good shape, he’s working hard, he really wants this fight here. The style I don’t like of this guy they’re giving us but hey, we’re gonna have to deal with it.

    Boxinginsider: Ray Austin - what are the problems he presents?

    Sam Colonna: Well, he’s been in with some very good fighters. He’s 6-6, 6-5, 240 pounds. Klitschko stopped him in two rounds but if he would have got past that first couple rounds I think he would have given Klitschko a helluva fight. He’s a good fighter, I watched his tape. This guy’s no joke.

    Boxinginsider: Andrew gave an awesome effort and performance against Mike Mollo. Since we haven’t done an official interview since then, you must’ve been impressed by that?

    Sam Colonna: Yeah I was but Mike Mollo is no Ray Austin. Mollo is 6-1, 220, this guy is 6-6, 6-5, 240. It’s a big difference. And Ray Austin has fought much better guys than Mollo has. It could be a 50-50 fight for us, whoever gets their shot in first.

    Boxinginsider: And if Andrew can win this fight, Valuev and a WBA title shot are next? Is that true?

    Sam Colonna: That’s what’s on the table, yep. Yep.

    Boxinginsider: How is Andrew responding with these two sudden golden opportunities?

    Sam Colonna: Well, this is what he’s been fighting for. This is what he’s been looking for - another title shot. I mean, this isn’t an opportunity we could say, Well, we’ll think about it.

    Boxinginsider: What is Andrew’s weight at now?

    Sam Colonna: Right now he’s at 248.

    Boxinginsider: What will he go down to?

    Sam Colonna: He wants to be bigger in this fight. He wants to be bigger because he’s fighting a big man. He doesn’t want to be pushed around. So we’re gonna try and keep that weight on as high as we could. We’ve been training and everything, he’s just keeping his weight up. He’s been training already about three months for this fight.

    Boxinginsider: Wow, he really wants this. He showed it clearly in the Mollo fight. It’s pretty obvious he almost desperately wants this something fierce. We saw it against Mollo, how are you seeing it in the gym in Chicago?

    Sam Colonna: Well, we’ve been training at 8:30 in the morning.

    Boxinginsider: Why so early?

    Sam Colonna: That’s the time that fits our schedule between both of us. I just opened up a gym, I’ve been training up on the North Side because that’s where he lives. (Note: Sam’s new gym is called Chicago Boxing and is located at 3508 South Halsted.)

    Notes: Golota, age 40, is ranked in the top 10 by three major sanctioning bodies, Austin is presently unranked. This will be Golota’s second pro fight in China, he defeated Marcus Rhode in 2000 by KO 3 in what was the first ever professional boxing event ever held in China (Guangzhou). He also won his bronze medal in Asia, at the 1988 Olympics Games in Seoul, Korea.

    Golota’s record is 41-6-3 (33 KO’s) while 37-year-old Austin is 25-4-4 (16).

    That's cool, Frank! Thanks for posting up the article.

    I'm thinking I had a late night Mexican dinner with the writer of this piece, along with Chris Guzman and Emil of Bolo Punch Boxing Hour, following a show at the Aragon Ballroom.

    Cheers,

    Funny Incident Before Class Started



    This morning in celebration of Halloween, I had a trance-house-dance CD playing and, just before class, one of my students had turned up the volume and was dancing up a storm. Joking, I said, "Why don't you get up on my desk and dance?"

    He did.

    I snapped a shot, which I thought was priceless.

    Happy Friday,



    Juan

    Helping Feed the Hungry in Chicagoland

    I received this email this morning and felt it would be good to pass on for those who are interested:

    Hello there, I received a request for help from a friend of mine with a ministry she has been involved with. Quite a simple plan, and very effective when volunteers are willing to give a few hours a month. I don't know about you, but I feel sick thinking that there is food being thrown out daily with all the hungry around us. Please contact Suzannah at chicagolandfoodrescue@gmail.com or me if this is something you can help with.


    Marc

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello Friends!

    I would like to invite you to share in a very simple opportunity to prevent food waste and help feed those in need.

    The background: Due to the nature of their business, many "fresh daily" food establishments throw away literally tons of perishable food every year. However, they would gladly donate this food to a non-profit organization instead. Through Food Rescue, a non-profit organization, we are working to make that happen. But we need volunteers to give of their time just once a month to be successful.

    In a nutshell, here is how it works:
    1. We find a Panera location (or other business) which does not already have an organization picking up their leftover food.
    2. We find a non-profit recipient organization in close proximity, who is able to use the perishable food if we deliver it.
    3. Great volunteers like you step up and commit to pick up the food and deliver it to the organization once a month.

    Our immediate need in the northwest suburbs is to pick up at Panera in Arlington Heights at 1736 W Algonquin (by 8 AM), and deliver to Clearbrook at 746 S Vermont in Palatine (at 8:30 AM). This one should not even be 90 minutes, but substantially less. Any Tuesday or Thursday morning is available. For example, you can select the 2nd Tuesday of the month, or the 1st Thursday, etc. If you would like to sign up, please let me know!

    For more background and wonderful stories, please visit our website at www.foodrescue.net. Although most FAQ's are answered on the site, you can also email me directly with any further inquiries, especially about the Chicago schedule - being refined day by day.

    Please spread the word to friends, family, colleagues, and coworkers in all of Chicagoland. If they cannot volunteer, they may know someone who can. If someone is interested in helping out with pick-ups in a different area, please let me know so that I can keep you in mind for future locations. We are slowly but surely growing this effort throughout all of Chicagoland!

    Thank you for your consideration, and for taking the time to read this.

    Jersey's Sports Bar



    I was at a popular sports bar in Barrington last night, where I met up with my friend, Ed for dinner. It was pretty dead in there, as the U.S. presidential elections dominated the news and the collective consciousness of the Americans.

    Interesting enough, our waitress told me that they were showing Ultimate Fighting Championship fights for free whenever they were broadcast, along with their line up of other popular mainstream sports, such as football, basketball and hockey.

    Yeah.

    Interestingly enough, on the way home, I heard John McCain's concession speech over the radio. Adn then when I arrived home, I got to watch Obama on TV at Grant Park in Chicago. I've been there many times. They say there were 100,000 people there for his victory speech.

    Without getting into the politics, I must say that it will be interesting to see how Obama does with our current economic situation. For the interests of all, I hope he does well.

    New James Bond Review

    I just read this at the Chicago Reader online:

    The Sympathetic Killing Machine
    An ingenious backstory lets the latest James Bond get away with murder.
    QUANTUM OF SOLACE Directed by Marc ForsterWritten by Paul Haggis, Neal Purvis, and Robert Wade

    By Noah Berlatsky

    November 13, 2008

    The problem with a long-running series like the James Bond films is that the formula doesn’t mean the same thing in different eras. Bond movies have a simple reason for being: the spectacle of a supersuave, supersexy, supercompetent manly man shooting and fornicating his way across one exotic locale after another, defeating every bad guy, bedding every attractive woman, and always looking great. It’s male wish fulfillment of the most obvious, gratuitous kind; indeed, its obviousness and gratuitousness are its charm.

    Or were. The classic Bond adventures with Sean Connery and Roger Moore can still be fun, but feminism and changing notions of gender have made their pandering feel garish. In 1964, when Connery starred in Goldfinger, Bond could rape Pussy Galore and still seem like an elegant moral paragon. Today . . . not so much. Over the years Bond’s mix of virtue and violence, of smoothness and misogyny, has gotten more and more difficult to package. Since at least 1973, when Moore took over the role, the Bond films have grown increasingly pointless, like a dishwasher running through its cycles over and over with the water disconnected.

    Finally, though, the powers behind the franchise have figured out how to make Bond relevant again—by giving him a tragic backstory. In Casino Royale (2006), which introduced Daniel Craig in the role, Bond falls in love with Vesper Lynd (Eva Green), a British treasury agent who’s helping him investigate a shadowy terror organization. So smitten is Bond that he even decides to give up espionage for Lynd—only to discover that she’s double-crossed him and swindled the British government out of millions. Shortly after her betrayal, a guilt-stricken Lynd dies horribly in front of Bond’s eyes, and he learns she was forced into her treachery through blackmail. The betrayal and tragedy transform Bond from a vicious, sexy hunk into a vicious, sexy hunk with a revenge motive.

    The Bond franchise is old enough that it has touched on virtually every possible permutation of male genre literature, and it’s certainly used revenge narratives aplenty—Sean Connery’s Bond, for example, avenges the death of his wife in the teaser sequence of Diamonds Are Forever (1971). But they’ve always been a bonus, not the motivating force of the series. The genius of Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace is the recognition that the hoary revenge theme, taken seriously, could rejuvenate the hoary Bond series. Bond as perfect man may, in the present day, seem stupid and even distasteful; Bond as wounded man, though, can be forgiven anything. The dead he leaves in his wake—not only enemy agents but old friends, casual lovers, and innocent bystanders—just makes him more attractive, adding to the inner guilt and pain he keeps so nobly repressed.

    Recent movie reviews:

    Religulous

    The Lucky Ones

    Lakeview Terrace

    Babylon A.D.
    The sense of barely submerged emotions coupled with Craig’s nonchalant, smoldering brutality gives life to all the old cliches. The car chase, the boat chase, the foot chase through crowded streets, the walk through the desert in evening clothes—he plays them all with unnerving directness. Early in Quantum of Solace Craig and his opponent tussle in a bell tower, swinging from scaffolding and scrambling for two fallen guns. Hanging upside down by one leg, Craig secures one of the pistols. His face is nearly expressionless—not impassive, but relaxed, as if he were standing in line at a supermarket and had just thought of something amusing. Then he pulls the trigger.

    The moment is compelling because it suggests depth. For Connery or Moore, surface was everything: the impeccable suits, the ready daring, the ready quips that turned death into a supper-club joke. But Craig’s mask, thanks to his backstory, makes you wonder what’s going on underneath. He shows little, but it suggests a lot. He’s got a soul.

    The soul and pain together make Bond sympathetic again, absolving him, for example, of his casual seductions. Connery and Moore seemed to enjoy their bit of the other; with Craig, you can actually see him turning on the charm, consciously hitting the damsel of the hour with the full force of his attention and charisma. One nicely played minor character is an airline ticketer who dissolves into breathless flapping when Craig leans in and gives her a half smile. The fact that it’s a ploy only makes it more attractive. The poor man—he doesn’t want to sleep with all these women, but he must, for the sake of his lonely, bloody quest . . . sigh.

    The tragic backstory also provides much-needed cover for the Bond movies’ chronic narcissism: it’s an excuse for keeping 007 at the center of the world. In Casino Royale Bond falsely accuses fellow agent Rene Mathis (Giancarlo Giannini), which leads to his torture; yet Mathis is so touched by Bond’s personal grief in Quantum of Solace that he follows him into serious danger and ends up getting killed. He even uses his dying breath to tell Bond, “Forgive her. Forgive yourself.” When the female lead, Camille (Olga Kurylenko), who has her own big problems, walks away from Bond at the film’s end, she gives him a passionate kiss and tells him, “I wish I could set you free.” And in Bond’s intense encounters with his motherly boss (Judi Dench) and an American agent (Jeffrey Wright), the inappropriate sexual undertones are defused by our knowledge of the woman in Bond’s past. You can be as incestuous or homoerotic as you like, as long as you’ve got a dead lover to slap down on the table when questioned.

    Camille may be the first Bond girl who neither sleeps with 007 nor dies, which makes Quantum of Solace seem relatively enlightened. The clubby tit-joke tone of the early Bond is gone—and with it, much of the series’s humor. But this is a movie in which the main female character is dead and offscreen. In place of woman as joke we’re given not woman as person but woman as excuse. The purpose of the Bond girl, and of the Bond film, is still to stroke the male ego. Bond changes just enough to stay exactly the same.

    I won't be able to watch the event in real time, as I'll be DJ'ing a Christmas party for a bank office that night. Bummer, but it's hard to turn my nose up at the money...

    I look forward to viewing a recording of the fights!

    Inservice Documentation



    Well, today we had a big, athletic assembly for the better part of half a day, followed by inservice meetings. Whereas the former was entertaining, the latter was, um, not on the same level.

    So, anyways, in between group participation and note scribbling, I threw together the cartoon above...

    TGIF,

    Storms A' Comin' to Chi-Town!



    This is a photo I snapped of a squirrel sitting outside the window of a stairwell at work yesterday. Unlike tomorrow's forecast, yesterday was relatively mild at a balmy 17 degrees F.

    Gordoom had informed me they had terrible snow storms in the Northwest on Monday and, from what I understand, we're supposed to experience those same storms later on this afternoon and tomorrow. In fact, so bad are the anticipated storms that we will be receiving our paychecks today instead of tomorrow, as they may very well have a snow day at work on Friday.

    Oh well, guess that's part and parcel of living in this "Winter Wonderland."

    Cheers,

    It's Now Official

    I'd heard rumblings, but now it's official: All Waukegan schools will be closed on Friday, December 19th due to the anticipated storm.

    Well, I guess that's nice, but it's going to stink when we have to work that extra day in June.

    Oh well, everyone be safe!

    Re: Close Up and Personal: Faces in the Crowd, Pt. 2

    Here's a song I wrote this afternoon for a lovely woman I'm dating. It was written with some obscure Michael Franks tune playing in my head:

    Samba with Me

    By Juan C. Ayllon
    (Copyright 2008)


    You danced with me,
    Came up to me
    Asked me to be
    Your partner in chance
    At some drab singles dance
    You disappeared
    Only to reappear
    Enchanting me
    A year or more
    Across the floor
    Your radiant smile
    With some lucky guy
    You made me sigh
    Made me ask why
    Can’t she be mine?
    She’s so feline
    So sleek and curved
    She’s got such verve
    Wish I could get up the nerve
    Fast forward to
    Another year or two
    I’m seeing you
    It’s oh so new
    Sends quivers through
    My heart be still
    Don’t push the thrill
    Samba step by step
    Hips swaying
    To and fro, our
    Minds and hearts aglow
    I want to know
    But cannot know
    Will you be here
    When song’s end draws near
    Or will you be
    An exotic memory
    A hi-fi LP
    Played at 33
    Scratches and blips
    But rarely skips
    Come dance with me
    Guitar’s beckoning
    We’ll glide as one
    Song’s just begun
    We’re partners in chance
    Samba in life’s great dance

    Photos from New Year's Eve Gig

    I served as DJ for a church-based singles event last night, which proved very successful.

    Now, I don't know if you can reach the link without being a member of Facebook.com, but I'll post a link to some photos someone posted up from that party. If you look closely, you can see me in the background behind the DJ table in several of the photos. And, no doubt, if you enjoy good professional sound, you just might spy one of my Bag End TA-15 speakers sittting on the ground (the room was so small that I didn't care to mount them on their tripods, and let me tell you: They sounded fabulous and rattled the place with their base!).

    Here's the link:

    George Chuvalo looks a million dollars. He must be about 70 but looks 20 years younger.

    My Barcelona Chair

    Well, I finally bit the bullet and bought a Barcelona Chair on sale through Domicile Furniture. The catch is, it sits up in my bedroom -- Which is a cat-free zone in my house -- most of the time, as my roommate has two cats with claws and I don't want the leather scratched! I bring it down when I have guests over.



    I broke it in this Saturday, when I had a good buddy and his wife over for dinner and a couple movies. I'm thinking I like it a lot!
