Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Perspective on Avatar

Posted 02-17-2010 at 07:01 PM by shastastar

I was late coming to this party for many reasons that are not important and did not get to experience Avatar until toward the end of January. Nevertheless, going in I thought I knew what to expect: over the top because computers now make it possible visuals combined with a plot similar to Fern Gully. By the time I saw Avatar I had read many things about it: the obvious and not so subtle references to unobtanium, numerous reviews, a perspective from native indigenous populations that this film reflected...

Macrobiotics and Other Things "Re-Imagined"

Posted 05-04-2009 at 08:27 PM by shastastar

This is a really great link about all the new macrobiotic restaraunts that are sprouting up all over Los Angeles.


It seems "macro" is becoming hip again, but they are calling it "progressive macrobiotics" I wonder if that's macrobiotics "re-imagined" like something else that Dirk was involved in that was "re-imagined" and probably not...

My Apparent Fall From Macrobiotic Grace

Posted 04-05-2009 at 08:40 PM by shastastar

Okay so in my quest to become super fit… I got a little impatient. Or should I say a lot impatient. I needed more energy and perhaps even more protein than what I was getting to get the miles and the training in that I need to be ready for trithalons and eventually in a few years when I believe my system is ready an ironman.

So the protein part is easily fixable, just adding a little more beans and seeds and watching my percentages carefully. At the same time in the process...

Starbuck's Perfect Oatmeal

Posted 03-04-2009 at 09:44 PM by shastastar

I find it extremely ironic that Starbucks is the only international chain with a drive thru where you can order plain unsweetened oatmeal ( in about a 140 calorie portion) for $2.45 a cup in the states and get sliced nuts and dried fruit on the side ( they will also give you a small bag of poison, I mean brown sugar, but skip that, you don't need it and it's very non macro).

Now I previously blogged on the evils of the drive thru... but this is almost an acceptable macro alternative...

A Positive Swimsuit Shopping Experience….

Posted 02-22-2009 at 01:18 PM by shastastar
Updated 02-22-2009 at 05:33 PM by shastastar

Okay really…...Swimsuit shopping is demoralizing as hell even from my honest brown rice induced macrobiotic perspective..

So I went to get a new swimsuit this weekend, and I thought (stupidly) hey I can wear a size 2 jeans now….. this should be fun…. I mean…. The crunches are paying off… I’ve almost got the four pack back ( I never had a six pack, even when I was a gymnast, so the four pack is good) I weigh less than I did in high school, so this should really be a treat...
