Just out for a walk and caught this gem. I love the "smile" he's got going. 

Gina Carano Interview - Article from the Vault

I was looking through old files on my computer and stumbled across an old article from 2007 that I wrote for Skinnie Magazine where I was lucky enough to interview Gina Carano (on the phone; boooo, no picture), who was training for an MMA fight at the LA Coliseum. 
Carano would eventually pull out of the fight due to illness and the article never made it to the light of day. 
That is.... Until now!!!!

Gina Carano The First Face of Female MMA By Bobby D. Lux
Gina Carano got into martial arts because someone called her fat. 

Four years ago, Carano went into Master Toddy’s gym in Las Vegas to watch an ex-boyfriend train.

“One of the masters came up to me,” Carano says, “and said, ‘oh baby, baby, you fat. You overweight. You come in, you train. I was like, ‘alright.’”

Nathan Bransford, an agent based out of the San Francisco offices of Curtis Brown Ltd., is perhaps the most accessible of all the literary agents who have embraced an online presence. During any given week, the thousands of visitors to his daily blog,, are provided with a front row seat to the ins and outs of the publishing world from a perspective and insight that has rarely been available to them before. And if they’re lucky, Bransford, …

Two Gentlemen of Lebowski - Adam Bertocci Interview

As appeared on Onomatopoeia Magazine in Spring 2010. 
“Shakespeare is the greatest writer in the history of pretty much anything ever, but he also just loved a good dick joke.”

The Writer Abideth Adam Bertocci, author of “Two Gentlemen of Lebowski” as Interviewed by Bobby D. Lux

   A skill required to survive the doldrums of the ever-unchanging world of the desk job is the ability to find things on the Internet to amuse yourself. So if I have to choose between work andHey, check out this link, it’s hilarious, I choose the link every time, no questions asked. Some days, it’s a picture of a normally cute cat making a disturbing or condescending face. Other days, you find your entertainment in a re-imagined version of Shakira’s Hips Don’t Lie with Glen Danzig singing backup. And then there’s other days when you strike pure gold.    One morning, just like that, I stumbled onto Two Gentlemen of Lebowski by Adam Bertocci. For the next hour I was absolutely tickled (which is a phrase I’ve never us…
