Friday Wrap-Up: Going to the (New Year) DecisionJan 7th, 2012 by dane
We are a week into 2012 and I have to say that the Budo Crew is doing marvelously. We started our New Year’s properly by getting up early, packing our training bags and we left our loved ones to do whatever they do while we train. Personally, I juggle between the beliefs that they literally go into suspended animation and only spring back to life when I park my car or they all mill about like actors that are off camera, a la the Truman Show.
Why do I mention this? Well, it’s been a slow news week and I realized while compiling my usual slew of links that this edition was pretty weak, and so I’ll leave you with what, in my mind, is the biggest news story in BJJ: Our boys are currently out in the world and filming an episode of Rolled Up (see inserted photo). To answer your question, I elected to stay behind to help man the offices and I made this transition so seamless that the rest of the Budo employees are unaware that I’ve left my “office” (four-man Coleman tent) at warehouse C (the planter in front of it) or I’m actually in the employ of Budo Videos. You know what they say, the best ruler is he that is not seen nor known of. Nor paid to be a ruler. If I were Caesar, my name would be Probonocis.
In response your other question, expect the episode to be up in February. Producing an episode of Rolled Up is a delicate process that requires elements of alchemy, Zen, psychology, zoology and the culinary arts – or at least I assume so. I’ve never actually seen the boys put one together.
