Baking Soda Really Does Kill Your Body Odor

There are a lot of ideas out there that work despite sounding either counterintuitive or downright insane. Like the idea that you’ll get laid more simply by being assertive and confident, or that you can completely eliminate B.O. with ordinary household baking soda. Roosh was responsible for pioneering this method, and let me tell you, it […]

Calorie Counting for Your Brain

One of the things I’ve resolved to do as part of my journey is severely curtail the amount of crap I read online. An “information diet,” as Tim Ferriss puts it. Here are some examples of what I’m getting rid of. Politics. What a complete waste of time. No matter whether Obama or Romney becomes president, […]

Nobody Gives a Fuck About You

This is something that took me a long time to realize, but it’s the cold, hard truth. Of course, I’m being hyperbolic with that title. If you’ve got parents, siblings, friends, a girlfriend/wife etc., they care about you. If you’re famous, you’ve got even more people who care about you. But if you’re just an […]

I’m Always Watching You Through a Keyhole

Last Saturday, I went to go see St. Vincent performing live in Buffalo and had a blast. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a real music act (as in a professional musician, not some crappy local band), and no matter how technology advances, there’s no substitute for seeing and hearing the songs live. It […]

The War of Art: Winning the Inner Creative Battle by Steven Pressfield

I credit this book with encouraging me to get off my ass and change my life. The War of Art is a brief guide on overcoming procrastination and laziness on your way to accomplishing your dreams. Steven Pressfield identifies the enemy of artists as Resistance, a nebulous force that saps your will and prevents you from […]

Escape from New York

The first week of June. That’s when I’m heading out the door, never to return. I’d leave right now, but I have a couple of commitments I need to sow up. Once they’re out of the way, I’m gone. I’m from Syracuse, New York. You might have heard of it. We’re the middle-of-nowhere city with […]

Why Are Feminists Such Weaklings?

In 1971, feminists sang “I am woman, hear me roar/In numbers too big to ignore!” In 2012, feminists are driven to tears over Internet articles. Reading popular feminist watering holes like Shakesville or Feministe is enough to convince anyone that “hysteria” should be brought back as a medical diagnosis. Think I’m kidding? Here’s a case example. A while ago, […]

Unafraid of Virginia Woolf: The Friends and Enemies of Roy Campbell by Joseph Pearce

The South African poet Roy Campbell (1902-1957) is a perfect example of how “great literature” is defined more by politics than by actual talent. While far from perfect, Campbell’s verse is energetic, masculine and passionate, a joy to read. Think Hemingway in iambic pentameter. But the reason you’ve never heard of him is because he […]

Anonymity is for Guys with Something to Lose

The Geographer writes on how he very nearly nuked his blog to avoid seeing his career plans go up in smoke: The measure of your country’s intelligence is proportional to whom it allows to ACTUALLY speak. As I’ve already stated, I’ve made the suicidally brave decision of putting my real name on this blog. No, […]

My Goals

Some of you (all five of you) probably think I’m nuts for writing this blog under my real name. Beyond the fact that I don’t care what panty-wetting liberals think anymore, tying this site to my identity forces me to shit or get off the pot. I’m making myself accountable in a way that I […]
