Thanks for the feedback guys, and thanks for listening. I have the first part of a book done, part 1 of 6. I won\'t post it though because I just don\'t trust the net. However, if folks are curious and would like to help me in their feedback, it would be appreciated. You guys and gals are my audience. Email the show and Ill send back the attached word document. Its called, \"Breakworld.\" Any commentary or questions can be left on my Host Intro page, accessed by clicking on my photo on the right of the main page. Otherwise, thanks always for listening to Joe and myself and to those with the interest and patience to read my literary wanders, may the fates smile on you.

PS - All you Drivers, what car would make the ultimate drive. I know it doesnt matter in the end, but its a perk. So, come on, spill the beans. I like the Audi All Road, or, the Plymouth Prowler. Not that I\'d turn down a Dodge Challenger SRT8 lol. Let\'s have it!

Ultimate driving car? At the moment it would be the BMW X6M, speed, handling, and who gives a shit about the fuel economy, twin turbo V8. If I was just going for a cruise though, an old Chevy Impala, 67 or 68, or a 62 Cadillac, with a big old lazy V8. I did look at buying an Audi Allroad, but when I saw the price of the parts, lets just say I changed my mind, and I had a chance to drive a Volvo XC70 out to Bathurst and back, very Black, leather seats, awesome stereo, but they wanted 50k for it. But I think my next car will be a V8, whatever it is. Love that sound.

Oh the draw of that V8. Just once, I\'d like to tap on a V12, just to know. The parts always get you in the end though. Nice car, expensive parts, HUGE repair bills. Such a bitch. Those old Mercury\'s are fucking nice though, like Stalone drives in Cobra.

Great Show Lando.
I think what carl is saying is that someone as complex, creative and \'inquieto\' as Lando is going to bored in 99% of jobs.

I hope you guys use a similar pre-show topics idea format for your future shows.

Great Show +2

I got into weight training because of my brother, he was heavily into martial arts, but at about 130 pounds, he didn\'t have the mass to be taken seriously by the big guys. I was over 200 pounds at this stage, and 4 years younger, but not a lot of it was muscle. Strangely we are both of a type that develops strength, without massive muscle mass, so we soon out grew our weights, and had no money to buy more.

He ended up teaching martial arts for quite a few years, I did about 3, including lots of weapons training, sticks, staffs, knives and swords. We even tried a few more obscure choices, ropes, nets and shuriken. The one guarantee in knife fighting, everybody gets cut. It\'s next to impossible to get in close enough to do damage without getting damaged. We simulated knives with folded, rolled up and taped newspapers. They didn\'t leave a mark, but they stung like a bastard. If your going to a knife fight, definitely bring the machete! The one thing I got from the training that sticks, analyze your opponent, don\'t box a boxer, wrestle a wrestler, or kickbox a kickboxer, use something you\'re better at. And if they have a knife or machete, run, or start throwing stuff at them, then get in your car and run them over.

Speaking of driving, I love it, I go places not just because of the destination, the journey is just as important. I often chose the road less traveled, I check maps to see if there are alternate roads. I think nothing of heading out on a 3 hour round journey just to get to my favorite Hamburger shop. Even better if I have a few of my favorite podcasts to listen to.

Keep up the writing, it\'s your outlet. I take photographs, even if I only have my phone with me, but I hate it when people ask me to take photos for them, it\'s like there trying to control my outlet, and when I get asked to take shots of specific things, they don\'t usually turn out as good as the more spontaneous ones.

Great Episode. Joe and you are like mates at a pub that you meet at the end of the week to unwind and talk about the world you have read and/or experienced (and other listeners who comment on the forum no matter if you agree/disagree with them). Stating this it is great to get a glimpse of your personal side to see what makes you tick and why you have the opinions you have. Weightlifting for me is Zen/meditation experience where you escape the rat-race pleasing everyone else and you are just alone with yourself mentally and physically. Pushing yourself to the limit that also burns all the negative thoughts that race in your mind for a few hours is bliss. I cannot fight which my friends find amusing but I suppose if cornered or loved ones are attacked I don\'t think I would be an empty threat if went into a rage.
Re:Writing- Are any of your larger bodies of work available to buy at Amazon etc? It Just would be interesting to read.
Driving : I love long drives especially at night when my mind becomes very lucid but driving at day especially in cities drives me nuts.
I just find it strange that you do a mundane job with all your education and knowledge though listening to you for all these years i can also see why...no offence intended:)
Thank you for letting the Ozone community to know a little more about the man Lando.
