Beats to Pillage and Conquer By...

Between Rhapsody and Pandora, I have spent a lot of time finding good background grooves to keep my practices moving and also to keep a subtle layer of smooth beneath the stress. I stumbled across Rob the Viking while I was searching for something else entirely.

Go ahead. Type "Rob the Viking" into your Pandora playlist. You will be introduced to some of the smoovest instrumental, experimental trip-hop tracks and artists you never found because you didn't know you were searching for them.

Seriously. It's not a rap thing. Give it a try. You can't deny the awesomeness.

I think I'm in love...

I love you, Royal Red Robin.

There; I said it. It's out there now and I can't take it back.

I know that our relationship started in a way that might seem dirty and lustful to most. We met at the bar. I was intrigued by your bottomless fries and I thought that the way you wear your fried egg was cute, almost as if it were a throwback in honor of a comforting breakfast sandwich from my youth. I decided to muster up the courage to order you and I have never looked back since. One flirtatious glance, and I was all yours.

I have been trying to eat healthier, really. I choose salads when I visit Wendy. With the Colonel, I have switched to the grilled chicken. Even last night, in the throes of our passion, I only ate two baskets of fries, when in the past I might have eaten so many more. I feel our relationship has matured over time, but I still am worked up into such a frenzy when you are near, that I couldn't resist adding the extra burger patty and gulping down that chocolate shake last night.

I am hooked on you.

Royal Red Robin, I guess what I am trying to say is, I am ready to commit. Let's cast away the trivialities of the modern hustle and bustle of city life. I no longer need other foods to sustain me and even Chinese buffet's now seem promiscuous and silly. Let's run away together. I am on my knee here.

I can't believe I am doing this...

Royal Red Robin... will you marry me?

Red Robin... YUM!

You’re watching TSV, your source for swim-celebrity gossip!

Wait... What's this? She's the last person I thought I'd see here!

That’s right! If you’ve had a night out clubbing in LA recently, you might have run into Aussie swim star Stephanie Rice out having a good time. But she is not just hitting any clubs; she is gaining a presence on the gay scene in an effort to restore her image after losing her Jaguar sponsorship over an anti-gay slur posted on her twitter account. Apparently, lots of people were upset over the tweet in which she told the South African Rugby team to “suck on that, Fa**ots!

According to her publicist, Steph will be rebuilding her marketability on a 12 city American tour of gay bars that will end with an appearance on June 26th at San Francisco’s gay pride parade.

When asked about her anti-gay tweet, Steph had only this to say, “I did not mean to cause offense and I apologize. I have deleted it from the site. I only hope that people understand that I am an avid rugby fan and I tweeted in the high emotions of a hotly contested match. Many of my friends are gay South African rugby players. Really! I only meant for the word fa**ot to come across in the most non-homophobic way possible.”

Good luck with that Steph! We at TSV support your efforts to bring a little tolerance to the world of sports, and to look good doing it!
