I checked out Tropic Thunder a few days ago and, aside from laughing my head off at a tremendously funny movie, I noticed something that I think most people would not have picked up on, which was really funny for me to see (spoiler warning but to be fair it's pretty negligible and really, if you haven't seen it by now I don't know what to tell you).

When they're showing the documentary about how Kirk Lazarus goes through skin pigmentation treatment to look like a black man, they show the doctors using this:

For all those of you who aren't familiar with this product, it's a liniment for bruises and such. This brought back so many memories of my Karate days - I used to be very familiar with this stuff, you see. I actually used to wonder if I kept using it heavily, if my skin would look darker. It made me smell terrible, but that was about it.

A small thing yes, but it just made the movie that much funnier for me.


Also, I can't be bothered to make a new post about this so here's a couple of pictures I just got (thanks, Rob!):

This is the mall courtyard where the Bangkok competition was held. This was taken just after everything was finished. I really liked that there was a fully-stocked supermarket 10 feet from where we were wrestling.

Here's me with Adam. I really liked this one as, well, it's the ONLY clear picture I have of him. And yeah check out the burns on my forehead. Every freaking competition so far, guaranteed, my face gets marked up.
