Cute, Sexy, Beautiful, Lovely, or Gorgeous

“Don’t call me cute.” “Why?” “Because I HATE being called cute. Call me sexy or beautiful, but anything but cute.” She was wearing a black dress, one that showed off her lovely figure. She could have modeled in that dress. Heck, she should have modeled in that dress. I remember…

It’s ok to feel lost sometimes

I've always said that women find themselves, and men make themselves. Is it true? Is anything true? Do you ever ponder stuff like this? And no, I'm not on drugs, other than a pretty strong ass Bloody Mary. I kept looking at my drawing pad. I was supposed to put…

A brief history on Western Classical Music

Awhile back, I was working on a book on orchestrating for Heavy Metal music. Most orchestrated Metal is just bad. Not going to call out names, but when I've heard several bands that actually have the budget to orchestrate their music, when they did, it sounded like garbage. That's because…

What 50 Shades of Grey will teach men

A few years ago, I had a long discussion about the decline of masculinity and sexuality with a heterosexual woman that I’m strictly on platonic terms with. She’s a big fan of 50 Shades of Grey, both the books and the movie. For the record, I have neither read the…

Some women

I have yet to meet a feminist with an ounce of culture. I love Camille Paglia, but I've never met her. The ones I've met? About as cultured as a garden slug. And yes, I've met a lot of them. I even regrettably lived with a feminist girlfriend for awhile…

Lift weights, eat steaks, and surround yourself with beautiful women

Roxy and I have a long running argument. She thinks she's average and I'm an amazing artist. I think she's gorgeous and I'm just painting what I see. It's funny how sometimes, beautiful women don't see what others see. Regardless though, her presence is magical. I get inspired whenever she's…

A generation without fathers – Part II

I don't just state problems. I state problems, then propose solutions. That's how I think. Women love to complain. They'll lay out all their problems and expect you to listen to them all. Then get irritated when a man proposes solutions. Well, guess what? This article isn't for the ladies.…

When masculinity disappears for a generation

The 80s really were a golden decade. If someone says they didn't have a good time that decade, they were either too young or socially retarded. I could tell people stories about what happened. People nowadays won't believe me. They'd think I'm exaggerating. But if I told someone who also…

Lessons, new techniques, and improving my morning routine

Discipline is something that takes longer to develop in some folks. I was bad at it forever. High school homework? Rarely got done. I rarely came to tests prepared. Usually either forgot they occurred altogether or crammed the night before. Both, the wrong way to do things. This kind of…

Prudes and the American rating system

In 2000, we took our son to the theater to see a God awful movie called Mission to Mars. Before going to the movie, my son said "I want to be an astronaut." We saw the movie had a PG rating. No, not PG-13. Straight up PG. So we mistakenly…
