Having been around the block and back several times over I have had the pleasure of feeling booties from the bony flats all the way to the table-top stacked. Booties are booties, it’s cold on approach and warm to the touch (you feel me?) but it was only recently that I experienced an artificially enhanced booty… A little background: As a man that has encountered real breasts as well as silicone and saline versions I can solidly say that nature wins out in that contest all day, every day. I had one experience so scarring (they were lumpy) that I became hardcore about my anti-fake boob stance to where I can proudly proclaim that I would take a natural pair of A’s over a false set of D’s any day. Many men share my stance in this… but back to the booty. Recently I took… [Read more]

There are always people at work who you have to deal with on a daily basis and simply loathe the time spent with them. Because it’s your work place, you must keep the peace and act as if they matter until they are out of your space.  Here’s my list of the top ten annoying co-workers. Dog Talk Hear this dog lovers – not everyone cares about your dogs and the cute way he jumps in the pool with you when you are trying to relax. Truth be told, I think it’s kind of gross to be in any body of water with an animal (or the bed for that matter). Unless the person on the other side of the conversation is a known dog lover as well, keep your dog comments to yourself. Business meets Personal When you are at work, that’s the only… [Read more]

Have you ever been hooked up on a blind date by a well meaning friend, co-worker, or family member? If you have, I hope it went well for you. I have never been on a blind date, and all I can say is “Thank God!” I promise you, this story is not a product of my imagination or creative writing skills. It is the true experience of a co-worker (let’s call her A’Vonique) and is less than 30 days old. A’Vonique had to travel to the Midwest for a week-long work related trip. She excitedly notified a college mate who lives in that city, with the hope of visiting with her. Her friend, knowing A’Vonique was single, announced that she had a “friend” for her to meet and proceeded to set up a blind date. A’Vonique was dressed to a “T” in anticipation of meeting… [Read more]

The other day I was reading a blog by one of these so-called “relationship experts” and a man wrote in to her asking how he could master the art of talking to women. Her advice to him was not to get better at talking to women but instead find one that he likes, befriend her and get with her that way. I thought it was some of the worst advice given to a man because many women have told me how they hate when a man comes at them from the friendship angle. I can understand this as it is not a genuine relationship and pretty much a bait and switch for her. I always tell men that they need to get their rejection bumps in so that the jitters and unpleasant feelings from a woman saying “NO!” is no longer in the equation when… [Read more]

I may be at risk at sounding like a disgusting White Knight on this article but trust me I’m no White Knight. Quite the opposite actually, I’m like that rebellious, badass, Black Knight who blocked Arthur’s passage in order to see if anybody was worthy of a good fight. See when I see hive mind on something, my natural thought process is to ask questions and fight back against it. If we are going to have a nice utopia, then wouldn’t it be nice if everyone played by the rules? Recently I did a vote on one of my favorite game series Mass Effect to see which model would represent the protagonist in their alternate cover. Upon observing the results I noticed that the Blonde model had over 13,000 votes whereas all the others: Brunette, Asian, Middle Eastern and Black were at about 1,500 or… [Read more]

Nobody likes to hear about their favorite artists dying but it worsens when that artist is young and full of potential. Amy Winehouse was a songstress who transcended many of her peers by channeling the greats with her powerful voice. She was in tuned with hip hop, not an elitist who shunned it – one of her songs “fuckery” was even dedicated to Nas, that’s how down she was and she did a collaberation remix of “I’m no Good” with Hall favorite Ghostface Killah. I say all that to show how much she embodied my two favorite musical genres of rap and jazz, she was my soundtrack and I was one of her fans who was hoping she could kick her demons and deliver a 3rd album. Today’s loss is another reminder to all of you out there who think that you are smarter and… [Read more]

I do realize that Wiz Khalifa represents something that men my age and older absolutely hate. He represents a younger generation of what I called “sub-men” because a lot of these rules, codes and practices that we were raised under fell off somewhere after Generation Z leaving us with walking disappointments all over the place. Recently we committed Kanye West to The Basement due to his infraction of “fighting over a bird” especially since the bird in question is one Amber Rose whose fame, like Kim Kardashian before her, was afforded from her ability to lay on her back for a real celebrity and broadcast it. I can understand that Khalifa, like the Snoop Dogg of yester-year is a floating weed zombie, seldom sober and cruising through on the success rainbow, enjoying life. But for everything you say about Snoop, you could never accuse him… [Read more]

If you are a cultured individual, one of the best things that you can do for your not-so-privileged friends is to show them the beauty that is the art of eating. Many people grow up eating just to satiate their hunger and attain a small pleasure but never get the chance to really eat. I believe that social eating is one of the most intimate and special luxuries that we have as human beings. It is the reason why families in the old days made it a mandatory thing to eat breakfast and dinner together, but being forced to the table is a world of difference from being invited to the table. I have become a huge fan of the 3-course meal even though I pass on dessert. I start with the house soup, some finger foods and an adult beverage followed by the delicious… [Read more]
