James is a full-time writer, part-time coach and part-time wage slave with an extensive history of brain trauma. He was born in 1963, has been involved in sanctioned and unsanctioned boxing since 1976, and co-founded Modern Agonistics with Chuck Goetz in 1998. Since then he has fought in over 600 stick fights and more than 200 machete duels and is still able to tie his shoes. In 2012 alone, LaFond managed to write over 140 articles and 10 books; he has lately begun attributing this improbable creative output, as well as his troubling apolitical lack of social commitment to his supposed extraterrestrial origin.
