THC has moved in so we can make each other accountable for being productive.

Our refrigerator is now sporting a sticker to a Colmado that delivers and a piece of paper that says

MISSION

  1. GET FIT
  2. WRITE/FILM
  3. LEARN SPANISH
  4. BANG GIRLS

In category one we have been training consistently and eating very well.  Plantains, Coconut Juice, Yucca Root, Chicken, Pork, Fresh Veggies, Avacados.  We are killing it.

RVF member Caribbean Soul has been helping us get around and trained with me a couple times

He took us to the Olympic Plaza where you can go into any number of Olympic sporting places and workout.  I found the Wrestling, Boxing, and Judo gyms.

Today I went and did Judo for the first time.  Bought a GI for 2750 Pesos and kicked the shit out of all the guys.  Although I was dead tired.  It was my first time doing something other than maintenance workouts in what seems like forever. They aren’t the most skilled grapplers on the ground and BJJ is simply superior to Judo on the mat in my opinion.  I arm barred and arm triangled my way through their black belts until I thought I was going to puke my guts out.  I bet I lost about 10 pounds of sweat.

I’m going to keep training there. It’s right in the University which is close and there is all sorts of hot ass walking around.  Also, this is a great way to build a social circle.  I also want to get some of their takedown techniques mastered.  I like the footsweeps and trips the Judokas use. *Take note, things like this will make you friends anywhere when you’re traveling.  With the popularity worldwide of fighting, it’s an excellent way to meet people (except Thailand, Muay Thai is considered a low class sport, you’re better off doing BJJ if you can find a gym; BKK BJJ is a good option).

Also, I have to say.  It felt good to go to battle again.  I was walking home tired as hell.  Arms so tired they were aching just from carrying my sweaty GI and my face was scuffed up from the burns that happen when your skin rubs across that damn corse material and I just felt…..tough.

We’ve found some cheap and nutritious places to eat near the University and also a cafe that makes excellent coffee.

There are two colmados right next to each other as well and the owners of both places seem nice and helpful.

The apartment: I’m pretty happy with, it’s right on the water and it’s proximity to the University and other attractions are logistically sound.  We have new furniture and good wifi. *They tried to get all Dominican on me when I first took possession by trying to change a few things that were agreed upon but I took out my bucket of Kybosh and straightened that out with help from The Driver.

Writing has been pretty productive. I was happy with the way our cartoon “How Little Lindy Became a Fat Feminist, a Bedtime Story Read by Fisto” turned out.  All the positive feedback has been great.  We’ve got a lot more coming.

Filming has been good as well, we are going to have a great Video Data Sheet for Santo Domingo and we are supposed to take a road trip this week to see some 2nd and 3rd tier cities.

It’s going to be hard not to drink.

Learning Spanish has been slow going, I started my first lesson of Duolingo and I think I’m leaning torwards Michel Thomas as the method to get this up to the next level.

20Nation has been banging the hottest girls online of course, and also making our future travel plans which sound pretty epic.  Looks like we are going into some relatively uncharted territory soon. I’ve got to get my Spanish on point.

Banging girls has been the last priority, and while I’ve day gamed a lot when going for food or other things, I haven’t really smashed any new girls.  We’ve been actually working like it’s a real job.  THC and me are having some regular girls come over that cook and clean the place. So we’ve saving money on a maid.

My dominicancupid.com account has been blowing up with girls but I’m getting sick of having the same conversation over and over again. I know I’m gonna regret not being more vigilant at some point but I’m in “improving myself” mode.

I’ve realized I needed a vacation from my normal Modus Operandi so that’s where I’m at.

I think that about wraps things up for the moment.

I’m Fisto, I like to think of myself as a modern day adventurer. I have a roving foot, a desire to write, and a bit of a drinking problem, so having a blog seemed like a natural progression. Cheers.

    Sounds like things are going well bro. I’m in “business and fitness” mode as well. That’s the key to making sure the party never stops.

    • Fisto

      Yeah, investing some time into positive things like your health and productivity pays dividends. I’m just worried about a hangover after this road trip.

  • DESTRO

    Keep handling your grown man business Fisto. I aforementioned how motivating this is. Work-It and Workout Baby!!

    • Fisto

      For sure.

    • Fisto

      I’m definitely not rich but yeah, terrible problem to have.

    As someone who loves the DR (among other foreign countries) these “Video Data Sheets” can’t be good. Yes, shit already exists out there, but evolving it further is a mistake. In part I think that’s why Roosh stopped writing the targeted travel books.

    Tragedy of the commons (a libertarian philosophy) – “The tragedy of the commons is an economics theory by Garrett Hardin, according to which the depletion of a shared resource by individuals, acting independently and rationally according to each one’s self-interest, act contrary to the group’s long-term best interests by depleting the common resource.”

    I understand why you guys are doing this. You’re trying to make passive income so you can live like this on the regular and be kings. I respect it. The grind, the hustle, the dreams, etc. There has to be another way though. The more success you have with this project the more you destroy your own empire. Let that shit sink in.

    • Fisto

      We’ve discussed that, i think there are more people that love to dream than actually go.

      I don’t see our video data sheet as harming guys like ourselves, but helping the relatively small group of men that are willing to go.

      It’s something I have thought about a lot. The thing is, the world is so big, there will always be a pussy paradise for a man adventurous enough to venture there.

      Why are you hating on these dudes? It’s pointless-its like a college Professor teaching business to a room of paid brainwashing supplicators/students-he can tell you all about how the World supposedly works yet there’s a guy out there with some college or just a bachelors degree who closes deals on the regular and is a multi-millionaire. THe point-it all boils down to getting out in the field and getting your hands dirty. Theory, nowadays, is just intellectual masturbation. Like my favorite freedom movement author Kenneth Royce says-Liberals arent the problem its the house cat level courage Republicans and Libertarians who don’t have the balls to resist even if that means bleeding and dying.

      PS-
      Fisto- did you ever see live combat as a Ranger or was it all just training missions????
      What’s your favorite rifle (mines the G3-the 5.56 junk is like spit wads compared to the 7.62 logs).
      Did you ever fight in the UFC??? If you have I commend you. Those guys are the best athletes around pound for pound. Iv’e heard they have World class boxing gyms in Cuba from World class boxing coach-Ross Enamait-Rosstraining.com If you guys ever did Cuba that would make for an interesting trip-sparring with the Cubanos-those guys can fight.

    Good work guys

  • markysparks

    You all should check out Curacao and do a sheet about it. It’s a fun place and the women are crazy hot.

  • Matt jay

    I love this blog! I can’t wait for the Video datasheets from the DR. I know its going to be epic!!!

    “The apartment: I’m pretty happy with, it’s right on the water and it’s proximity to the University and other attractions are logistically sound.”
    What area/neighbourhood of the city was this?
    Thanks
