Goodbye from the SoG

October 24th, 2010

It is time to finally say goodbye. Copy, print-out or rip off all your favorite recipes from the site. As of November 15th, www.sonofgrok.com will be no more. Its come time for renewal and I simply can’t justify renewing the site any further. It is not that I don’t have any content. I have tons [...]

Everyone knows about the Wii with its “Fit”, “Sports” and “Resort” games. Xbox and Playstation are each coming out with their own versions of body mechanics controllers and games as well. Its obvious that this is a definite trend in the video gaming world and it is here to stay. The question is… “Is there [...]

Not so bizarre foods

June 19th, 2010

Cable television channels have several shows where celebrity hosts travel the globe in an effort to educate the viewers on the culture and lifestyles of people who live in other countries (it’s obvious this is targeted for American viewers).  I think one thing that makes these shows so appealing is the “weird” and “gross out” factor some of [...]

I live on the edge of town in a High Desert Plateau. It is about 6,500 feet above sea level and there is not a tree in sight. It is a barren windy, sandy plain and it is where Roger De Rok and I like to hike, explore and do arroyo sprints. It is pretty [...]

Who is Manit you may ask? Manit is my brother in law (pictured above). Manit was an amazing person. He at a very young age (about 13) became addicted to crack cocaine and ran away to become a male prostitute. In his adult years, he overcame all this adversity. He managed to kick the drugs [...]

New Author = New Content

May 22nd, 2010

I know. Its been a while. Seems like I say that a lot. The computer has been fixed for quite some time but I have been working like a madman and neglecting the site (yes again). It is almost time for renewal on my domain and it isn’t free which means I am considering killing [...]

R.I.P. SoG’s computer

March 22nd, 2010

My machine that I built 6 years ago (which has performed admirably right up until this weekend) has finally died. I was writing my post yesterday when my fans went caput and the whole thing catastrophically overheated and fried. I am dead in the water without access to email or anything really until I can [...]

Get Fit With Me The SoG

February 22nd, 2010

It is confession time. I have been slacking. I could make a million excuses (which I have), but fact of the matter is that I have been lazy. I have not fallen of the primal wagon per say but I have not been doing everything I could/should. I have been eating healthy, but not with [...]

Lean Cuisine… yum

February 15th, 2010

I am not sure what is meant to be lean on these things. Lean in that the portions are so small? Lean in taste and flavor? Lean as in lean forward as your gut drags you around? Whatever the reason, the Lean Cuisine name makes it sell. It is crazy how well these things sell. [...]

I hate restaurants

February 8th, 2010

Ever since going primal and cooking for myself, I cannot stand going to restaurants. Usually by the time I drive to a restaurant, get seated, order, wait for my order, eat, wait for the check and pay… I could have whipped up an amazing meal and enjoyed myself more in the process. Then there is [...]
