Been away for a while. A calamitous fire wiped out several months work in preparation for a book, which is super depressing, and I've been furiously running on a hamster wheel since.
I have spared a quick second, however, to post this new entry in ESPN Grantland's new 30-for-30 shorts, which will doubtless be of interest to several Ferners here. It's not a youtube link, I can't embed here, so you'll have to click through the link to view:

[b][color=#000000][size=4]The first film out of the gate is [/size][/color][i]Arnold's Blueprint[/i][color=#000000][size=4], from acclaimed directors Michael and Jeff Zimbalist ([/size][/color][i]The Two Escobars[/i][color=#000000][size=4]). This 10-minute movie focuses on the years before Arnold Schwarzenegger was the "Universe's Perfect Specimen," when the young Austrian seized upon an opportunity to use the sport of bodybuilding to catapult himself to international stardom. Barrack escapes, tanks, and borrowed underwear all play key roles.[/size][/color][/b]
It's corny, it's inspirational, and it's without a doubt infinitely more interesting than his ridiculous Total Recall dvd audio commentaries.

Been meaning to comment on this for awhile. Hope the book is coming along RT, bummer dude !
Say what you like about the big man, he is one sharp cookie, nothing short of incredible to get a body like that without so much knowledge that is easily obtained today. Arnie is a legend in my eyes for a number of classic movies but also for having the most borderline ridiculous ( I mean that in a good way if that makes sense ) physique you could get. I think at his best he looked miles better than any number of todays juiced up muscleheads.......
