Let’s face it, beauty can strike a man weak and beautiful women make for nice posters, magazine spreads and wallpaper, but there’s nothing like sexiness to trump the power of beauty. What I am getting at is a bit complex to explain but I can use a real world example to show you my meaning. If a woman is sexy, or has become sexy through clothing, walk, talk or working out, she can convince a man to be nuts for her a lot faster than anything else a woman can do. Now some of you men will argue that “ya but you have to wake up to that face in the morning” but I assure you that a woman’s aura can make you so drunk as to bypass all that “what if” nonsense and before long you will be the guy that has all the… [Read more]

I’m wondering if the recent Reebok Easytone settlement will open the floodgates for suits of other products whose advertising claims promise the moon. After all, what product really delivers on its promises anyway? My lashes are still not great or stiletto. Eating a NutriGrain has yet to  cause me to eat better all day. Yoplait light yogurt could never be confused with a piece of cheesecake. And while Nike’s ads are truly inspirational, generally speaking, I “just” put Nike on. Doing “it” seldom gets done. Add to that the thing with using celebrities to serve as ad men and women is the implicit promise that you’ll look like them, smell like them, and have some modicum of  success like them in life, love or happiness if you would only use the stuff they’re using. So Kim Kardashian is one of Easytone’s henchwomen. Surely by anyone’s standards, she’s an attractive woman who just happens to have pretty good… [Read more]

One night I was with this beauty on our 4th session of the horizontal mambo and things were really beginning to heat up. It was college, we were horny & experimental (isn’t that what college is all about) and I wanted to show her my talents. Going at it the way an 18 yr old with an agenda does, this girl raises up out of her cowgirl and straight hit me with a stream of golden you-know-what. Pause! The hell just happened? It happened so quick that I didn’t know what to do… should I channel my inner Mr. Marcus and continue to beat the dust off of “that thing” or do I go Bugsy Siegel and throw her off of me like “what’s the matter with you!?” I won’t say which way I went with that one but the two extremes I considered are… [Read more]

Believe it or not denizens, female Samurai are not restricted to the wild imaginings of anime and western movie plots; they truly existed. One of the premier names that tends to come up when you mix the words woman and samurai is Tomoe Gozen, a beautiful and extraordinary woman whose life was so dynamic that many think that she never really existed. Lady samurai were known as ona bugeisha, there weren’t very many of them and the few that lived came from the bloodline of samurai (Japanese cast system dictated a strict division between lords and peasants). Being as it was a rare thing to become a lady samurai, you can imagine that most who took on the title were very good at what they did. Tomoe’s legend begun when her master Minamoto no Yoshinaka took Kyoto and assumed leadership of the Minamoto clan. This… [Read more]

Those of us that have played or participated in anything competitive know that when all else failed and everyone else bailed there was one person who saw things through to the end: mom. When we were outmatched or outplayed, mom (sometimes embarrassingly) watched on. Maybe it was because she was our ride home (child endangerment charges could be a bitch, I’d guess) or just figured “Hell, I’m here now. No need leaving early.” Either way, she stayed. I remember one year playing on a team that just scoring was victory for us. We were a pathetic cluster of boys imitating a football team at times. During those games, I’d look to the stands hoping that she had been looking away and not seen the last few minutes. Hell, I felt bad for her. But never did I think I’d look up and she’d be walking… [Read more]

Day 105 of the NBA lockout came and went as many of the previous 104 before it had: without any meetings between the NBA and NBPA. But also like many of those previous 104 days, the most significant news was a loose statement made by one of the chief particulars. This time it was the Commish stepping to the mic to offer an outlook thinly veiled in disappointment: if no deal is reached by this upcoming Tuesday, games through Christmas Day could very well be cancelled. That just happens to coincide with a planned meeting of the owners and the players face-to-face. (The one change to previous meeting is that there will be mediation involved in this round of banter, though that guarantees nothing as far as an agreement is concerned.) This of course follows the pattern laid out by the Commish last week that… [Read more]

Smack! You feel tears streaming down your eyes but he just doesn’t stop.Your cries and screams instead urge him to hit you harder, with more brute force than ever before. Doesn’t this creature realize what a sin it is to hurt a woman? First, he makes you cry and then he hits you. Your body hurts from the beating and your face stings from the slaps but you’re made to think that it’s your fault; that if you hadn’t said or done something he wouldn’t have hit you. Don’t be afraid to leave this monster. There are friends and family that can and will help you, you just need to place a little trust in them. I am a passing ship in the night, but even I will carry your message through. I understand how hard it is when all you want is a man to truly… [Read more]

Nothing strokes a culture of mediocrity like Social Networking, I mean it is absolutely scary the way it works. Being a part of a Social Network is like being in a population of people forced to share one giant apartment complex on an island. See within that analogy you will have some people that want to know and get along with everyone (because this makes them “popular”), some who want to become famous and others who hide out in their rooms listening silently to the chatter going on outside. On Facebook – the king of all Social Networks I have found that the only people that cherish the space are those who can play the game, or those who are somewhat delusional about their importance. Playing the game If you were to take the time to examine your massive friends list of ex-classmates, ex-lovers, people… [Read more]
