Less Than Zero

Are you going to allow other people to drag you down with them, or are you going to cut them loose to lose on their own?

The movie “Less Than Zero” is about three drug addicts.

All treea dem, Clay, Blair, and Julian graduated high school together.

Clay left for college while Blair & Julian stayed at home.

Before he left, Blair was Clay’s girlfriend. After he left, Blair was Julian’s girlfriend.

Clay (apparently) stopped using drugs altogether. Blair & Julian increased their cocaine consumption.

When Clay returns to town during the Christmas holiday break, he has two problems.

His best friend Julian is a junkie.

His girlfriend, who’s now screwing his best friend, wants Clay to help Julian.

Who Are You?

The reason I wanted to discuss this movie is because there are a lot of people who spend all of their time trying to get back *UP* to zero. Continue reading “Less Than Zero”

Women Without Makeup

A chick not wearing makeup can’t provoke anyone to do anything.

So HuffPo recently posted an article about Alicia Keys not wearing makeup to the VMAs (The MTV Video Music Awards), entitled “The Anger Provoked By Alicia Keys Not Wearing Makeup To The VMAs Is Sadly Not Surprising”.

The only reason I even clicked on this article was because of the words “Anger Provoked”.

First of all, Provoke (merriam-webster.com/dictionary/provoke) means to cause the occurrence of (a feeling or action) : to make (something) happen : to cause (a person or animal) to become angry, violent, etc.

So, for instance, if I punch you in your face, that means I’ve provoked you to feel hurt and/or to fall on the floor.

My action (smashing your grill) caused your reaction (feeling emotional or physical pain and/or losing the ability to continue to stand up).

Trumpesque Dating Techniques

How to apply techniques utilized in Presidential campaigns to increase the success of your dating career.

Now that I’ve become aware that you can’t be disqualified for attempting to become the President of the United States of America due to mental deficiency or illness, I think I’ll try some similar dating techniques that definitely shouldn’t work, but apparently approximately 50% of the women in this country might fall for them anyway.

Conversation Styles

Her: “Where were you born? :D”
Me: “In a crossfire hurricane…… And I howled at my Ma in the driving rain……… But it’s alright now. In fact it’s a gas. :D”
Her: “That’s so fascinating! :D” Continue reading “Trumpesque Dating Techniques”

Tinder: Prep & Concepts

This is a totally new game and it’s time to learn how to play it efficiently.

Two months after writing Tinder: First Impressions, I’ve finally had the time and impetus to fill out my Tinder profile.

I live in Manhattan, so according to /www1.nyc.gov/site/planning/data-maps/nyc-population/current-future-populations.page, as of July 2014, approximately 1,636,268 people live on this island, which means approximately 818,119 women within our 13 miles:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan – Although New York County is the United States’ second-smallest county by land area (behind only Kalawao County, Hawaii), it is also the country’s most densely populated county.[16] It is also one of the most densely populated areas in the world, with a census-estimated 2014 population of 1,636,268[1] living in a land area of 22.83 square miles (59.13 km2),[17] or 71,672 residents per square mile (27,673/km2). On business days, the influx of commuters increases that number to over 3.9 million,[18] or more than 170,000 people per square mile (65,600/km2). Continue reading “Tinder: Prep & Concepts”

Tinder: First Impressions

Pretending that people aren’t addicted to this hot-or-not turned dating app situation isn’t efficient anymore.

The best part of the Tinder dating app is when they stamp “Nope” on the chick before whisking her off your screen! 😀 hahaha I think I laugh at that or at least smile every time! 😀 hahaha oh man

Knowledge Changes

Tinder: First Impressions
For those’a youse that have been reading along over the years, you’re aware that I’m anti- dating apps.

For someone that is actually used to getting girls, scrolling through pictures on a phone doesn’t make any sense and it isn’t fun and it isn’t interesting. *YAWN*

However, having spoken to a few people and read a few articles about the situation, I realize that dating app presence may be the most efficient style at this point, simply due to the population’s dependence on it.

It’s like how people drink so much coffee but don’t want to admit that they’re addicts just like any other drug addict.

I don’t touch coffee, except an infrequent espresso, because I hate the taste. I’ve also never smoked a cigarette in my life. I drink a lot of beer.

So pretending like people aren’t addicted to coffee wouldn’t be the most efficient way for me to interact with them.

Similarly.. Pretending that people aren’t addicted to this hot-or-not turned dating app situation isn’t efficient anymore. Continue reading “Tinder: First Impressions”
