We’re all still learning…

We're all works in progress. Until we're dead of course. I look back at some of my drawings from only a few years ago and cringe. I remember the first few songs I wrote. Cringeworthy. And of course, my old writing. Cringe. Only a few years ago, I wrote a…

Inside the sad life of a beta male

Bless his heart. He’s not a bad guy. But James (not his real name) struggles. Big time. He’d always come over and he loved checking out my photography room. At the time, I’d always have new nudes of beautiful women. I was seriously into photography and the downstairs was a…

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…

Almost thirty years ago, I had my first misfortunate encounter of a psychic vampire. Afterwards, I felt like I had lost a part of my soul and it took quite awhile to recover from that attack. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, read on. You need to…

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…
