    Probably a good idea to not get leg kicked by Stephen Thompson. Photos by Houston Jones / Instagram A self-described bodybuilder on YouTuber called Houston Jones says he "does stupid things for your entertainment." In a video he posted Friday on his channel he lived up to that billing as he continually dared Stephen Thompson, a renowned striker in the UFC, to leg-kick him.

As Jones questioned his life choices, Thompson appeared happy with his handiwork. If you've ever wanted to see a YouTuber get kicked in the legs, you should be quite pleased with the footage below.

    Out of crisis, creativity. Director of vocal pedagogy at the University of Colorado Boulder John Seesholtz and Houston-based musicologist Matthew J. Jones will present Music and HIV/AIDS — A Look at Then and Now, an interdisciplinary discussion via Zoom at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, October 12. During the free event, they'll look at the intersection of music and the HIV/AIDS crisis. "I think that it is very important that we have this discussion about the AIDS epidemic as we face our current COVID pandemic," Seesholtz says. "There are several parallels in the USA, as many in our sphere have become enraged about the idea of wearing masks, as well as a stigma in the religious community as lines have been blurred between politics and religion. The fear and anxiety of those facing HIV and AIDS in the 1980s and early ’90s are not widespread among many communities across the globe. I believe history allows us to learn and to find empathy in loss and struggle."Related Stories Glitter Bomb: Sasha Geffen's Queer Take on Pop Music and Gender Wheelchair Sports Camp's New Song Shoots Back...
