One of my friends (a young lady that we’ll call Veronica for the sake of this article) is on the market for a guy. Like many of us who choose life over romance throughout our years, Veronica finds herself on the north side of 30 and in want of a guy who will accept her. Given my history with Veronica I knew what it was that she enjoyed. She is active, she does martial arts, dances in parades and is a big time artist. These qualities make her atypical of the standard black girl mold and it was what attracted me to her in the first place (forever and a day ago when we were a thing). Now I am in one spot and happy and she is beginning to feel the need for love after many years of flying solo. The few guys that… [Read more]

Getting sucked into an argument with a comment troll on a blog, e-zine or forum is an embarrassing thing once you figure out that you’ve been had. As a former master troll (fresh out of rehab) and site owner it makes me sad when an obvious (at least to me) troll trap is set and some clueless commenter walks into it. Sometimes it’s not even trolling that is meant to be trolling, sometimes a commenter is just an ass who puts something out there to devalue your post or just to make themselves feel better than you. Well enough is enough, The Hall of The Black Dragon does not want the trolls to have it so easy, so we offer up some clues for you to “get a clue” on the troll game. Either don’t respond to these people (which makes them look dumb) or… [Read more]

I remember the day my man Lawrence broke up with his girl he volunteered me some photographs of her topless bodice. While I feigned interest because that’s my man and I know he did it to satisfy his wont to humiliate her, what he had done was to burn her breasts into my brain so that I can never be in a state of wonder when I see her again. This humiliation is also performed by women that want to humiliate their ex, but it is done in the form of describing your anatomy if you should be born with less than a hammer in your pants. See fellas, this is the main reason I tell you that when you do get some panties you had better lay it down hard like your family’s life depended on it. You need to go full throttle Brian… [Read more]

At the risk of getting no reads on this article (the ones that I write defending women seem to do the worst in regards to interest) I wanted to explore the stigmas and fears that men have for women that lift weights heavily. I don’t mean all men but rather the more vocal of our number that have relayed their disinterest and disgust when it comes to hard bodies. We can begin with the term hard body and for all of you men reading that wish to broaden your dating horizons to include the gym. I will attempt to debunk the myths that surround a lady gym-rat. Muscle on Muscle is Not Always Desired While it may make perfect sense for a male bodybuilder and his female counter-part to link up, marry and have droves of muscular babies. Many bodybuilders are just as content finding… [Read more]

A woman that has fallen head over heels for a guy will not have the clear judgment needed to see that everyone else in her life wants to cut his head off with a rusty blade. You may not know your douchebag boyfriend is hated until you break up and everyone admits that they thought he was an ass. But luckily for you there are tell-tale signs; normally you can judge through the thoughts and actions of male family members and “friends”. The latter is in quotations because male friends more than likely want to be more than that with you so they will probably give you a bad report on the guy anyway. So read the signs and ask your brothers, uncles or father and get multiple answers, don’t just trust dad’s feelings. Jackass Signal 1 – Short visits from male family members If… [Read more]

I don’t know what it was that made me avoid them, maybe it was those terrible pictures that come on the packaging of a dude sans shirt in a pair, looking like nasty spandex guy. Whatever it was I didn’t want anything to do with them, them being of course boxer briefs. The ex-girlfriend used to stay on my case to “try” them and I was so hesitant and against it that I didn’t even do it, see for me swinging wild in boxer land was the place to be. As a general rule it would be boxers daily except on the days where you had to do slacks (having a “print” is not cool, despite what Meatballs 3 tried to teach you.) Now I simply don’t want to wear anything else, boxer briefs are the perfect combination of both worlds. If you have to… [Read more]

Cee Lo Green is on another plain of existence with his voice, space-age suave and well THIS VIDEO. Not a few nights ago we saw the man dressed like some sort of War Cockatoo alongside the lovely Gwyneth Paltrow but now a new video and single has sprung up for our enjoyment of his new song “Bodies” directed by Mikael Colombu. “They say that chivalry is dead, then why is her body in my bed?” The video was shot completely with a Nikon Camera, has some cameos of Hall favorites: Janelle Monae, Raphael Saadiq and even Common… there is a bit of James Bond in there, some TRON and Cee Lo Green in a purple tint, collecting bodies in his bed. Watch for yourself and enjoy:

Many times on this site we present a side of macho that is super traditional and biased in its stance. The idea of “man” that we normally present is mistaken for the brawler athlete jock who goes to parties, gets the cheerleaders and grows up to inherit daddy’s company. We realize that it can be seen that way but it is far from the ideal that we want and that ideal is to give you that James Bond edge. I don’t mean the Roger Moore slapping women and taking the booty swagger but a bit of that Sean Connery / Piers Brosnan flair. Since it’s hard to explain to a person how to channel Bond without him trying to actually “be” Bond, we offer you some steps to get you close to the ideal for which we strive. The 007 Steps of Cool will put… [Read more]
