When I first wrote this article it was entitled “Dear Penthouse (Strip) Club – you suck!” but as you scan the commentary below you will see that I was invited to return by Daisy a dancer at the establishment. Needless to say after revisiting Penthouse and witnessing the change and return to normalcy, I will be returning again and again and it has been re-established as The Dragon’s preferred club for naked beauties and delicious food. When I entered the Penthouse, I noticed that there were more girls of diverse backgrounds, more open space and the food was great as normal. I dined with my fellows and paid attention to the names as I looked for “Daisy” since it was due to her that I returned to the Club that I had sworn to never return to after my awful experience not even a year… [Read more]

Once in awhile us single folks will have to bear the annoying sense of responsibility that a married friend puts on him/her self to marry us off. While in their minds they feel that they are doing you a service, the fact of the matter is they should probably mind their own business. One of the people I know even had the audacity to suggest parties where they could pool the resources of his wife’s single friends and his in what I assume would be a huge hook-up party. What was he thinking you ask? The answer is he wasn’t, he was just being the typical married guy who is high on his fulfillment delusions. Gauge your single friends All of us have THAT guy or girl in our lives who whines continuously about not having anyone to love or how they were meant to… [Read more]

This video is very old, but the point still needs to be driven home so that those of you who absolutely don’t get it will. Rap music is entertainment, it’s entertainment that has grown out of the urban outcast streets to the popular mainstream media. With the growth and changes in Hip Hop from black conscious lyrics to money bragging, there has always been an argument of whether someone was real or not. While the mature people who love the art-form can easily separate the abstract from the reality, many impressionable people believe or want to believe that whatever is said is fact by these guys. We can accept that Sylvester Stallone is an actor who really hasn’t shot up hundreds of enemies but when we hear that Rick Ross isn’t the drug lord of Miami we cry foul. In the second video below, Malice… [Read more]

Many women leave tell-tale signs that they are just not that into you. And men very seldom pick up on these for several reasons that can be discussed in another article. This is all about helping you decipher the difference between whether she just isn’t into you and never will be, or you just happened to be that guy to break down the wall around her heart and make it your home. Settling: She’s trying to change you. This is a huge red flag of a settling chick! She has assessed your every characteristic and has come to the conclusion that you may have the potential to make her happy. This woman is good for telling her friends that you “look good on paper”, as you have all the symptoms of a perfect man – good job, mortgage, not bad looking, and head over heels… [Read more]

Do not mistake this for another sophomorish frat-boy list of “rules” that is written for cheap chuckles. The Hall of The Black Dragon’s version of The Man Laws is not of the typical, our rules are the result of years of study, research and principle. To put it short guys, if you follow the laws then you will be a man amongst men, a gentleman’s gangster and a better man. Read and obey the Man Laws. Rule 01 (Girlfriends): If asked, your buddy’s girl is both beautiful and funny but she isn’t your type. Rule 02 (Medal of Honor): A good friend jumps on a grenade whenever his main man goes in for the kill. Translation: Normally women roll in pairs or more, although birds of a feather flock together, sometimes you may see a diamond with a piece of coal cock blocking all pursuers…. [Read more]

Once in awhile I’ll get an invite to a social mix-and-mingle type event. The goal of course is to provide a nice, friendly atmosphere to talk business with yuppies over drinks. Going into these things I automatically know that I’ll be wasting my time. A fine example of the time waste is the iPhone craze that occurred during the latter half of the 2000’s. During this iPhone craze, I had many people coming up to me saying “Hey, Greg, let’s make an iPhone app.” I knew that I was meant to be the one doing the coding since these people coming up to me weren’t coders,  and would not want to do it even if they could. So you probably think, if I’m the creator, then they’ll provide the ideas, right? So I ask “What’s your idea?” “Oh, I don’t know. Do you have any?”… [Read more]

Nerd is such a broad term isn’t it? And like most broad terms and generalizations for a subset of people it can be very easy to paint the good members of the group with the same angry brush that is meant for the bad members. Lately I have been making it a routine to visit the local bookstore since it gets me out of the office and allows me to concentrate on my writing. This past Saturday I was most unlucky to be in the vicinity of a loud group of obnoxious “nerds” who recited lines from Ice Age – snorting uncontrollably and making everyone pay for their jokes. I am sure that within their circle this was great fun, but for everyone else it was unbearable. Luckily I was saved by a pair of earbuds and a volume setting that worked. Another time I… [Read more]
