We’re not only writers, we’re readers and below are some of the highlights of the past few weeks that we wish to share: Shatter Unnecessary Comfort Zones – About three years ago, I had one of the most exciting experiences of my life: I went kayaking.  As someone who cannot swim, the thought of kayaking is something I would have never imagined I would do.  One of my best friends, Dr. Renaldo Blocker, convinced me to go kayaking, although I was opposed at first.  Even though I knew there were some potential risks associated with kayaking, I did not allow those risks to prevent me from having a truly fun adventure… (REVPAID) The Side Chick Chronicles~ Part One – Let’s not be coy, infidelity has become the new normal. So for all the side chicks, aspiring side chicks and side chicks who don’t know they’re… [Read more]

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. He attributed his customary heartburn, constipation and the presence of blood in his stool as “normal” (to him), especially that hemorrhoids were common among his family members.  Well, a colonoscopy had this vibrant 40+ year-old saying “Oh shit!” Did you know you should be taking a look at your poop on a regular basis to keep an eye on your digestive heath? Stools are the end product of eating and digesting our meals, as the body rid itself of undigested foods and toxins.  Have you ever wondered what a “normal stool” should be like especially when we experience the hardness and looseness of this smelly necessity? Well, let’s take a look. Normal Stool should have the general color of cardboard, 4 to 8 inches long, and curved like a banana. It should leave your body… [Read more]

Recently I saw a Pepsi commercial with the lovely Sofia Vergara and it managed to turn me off of a woman who is naturally irresistible. How, you may ask? Well it wasn’t her obsession with wanting a can of soda so bad, but the fool of a man who put himself out there and thought her needy mannerisms were intended for him. I’m sure the women watching found it funny and the men were too busy watching Sofia’s lips… but it was a reminder of what every man fears when going for beautiful women. It was the intent of the commercial after-all  no doubt written by a man who knows how much it sucks but I am going to use it as a teaching moment for everyone. If you haven’t seen the ad, here it is: Mistake #1 – Turning Around After The Diss I think a man… [Read more]

You all know the narrative, a weak good guy gets burned, swallows the Red Pill, vows to stop “lovin’ dem hoes” and becomes a cannibalistic wolf to future women. Though this happens a bit to both genders, when a man gets burnt it’s a lifelong scar that he never recovers from… isn’t it? Well Issa Rae has started a web series to tell the tale of the Wolf-kind in a very funny way (I know I was laughing watching it) so we felt it only right that we shared this little gem of a show with you. One time for the poor SOB who got put to sleep at 5:21, somebody throw some cold water on that boy and tell him to get back in the fight! No seriously, this is a funny take on a very real transformation that happens every day. Dogs aren’t… [Read more]

One of the most common things that guys tend to do when they see an irresistibly beautiful woman or an ultra-hot dime piece is to ogle her like a starving dog and allow invisible nails to plant them to the ground. On the flip side you may have a pack of lames who make a game out of it in order to fire themselves up – each taking turns at approaching the woman with weak lines. This is even worse than saying or doing nothing as it drives a woman to become hostile instead of aloof at your distance admiration. When I was a younger man I would defeat the long-distance stare by forcing my legs to put me into a situation that my mouth had to get out of. What I mean by this is that when I saw a beautiful woman – that… [Read more]

The name Jamiroquai is synonymous with that of fast cars and funky disco grooves but they are a band that has created a sound unlike any heard out in the music industry today. With confusion to those unfamiliar with their music, people often assume that the band’s front man Jason “Jay” Kay IS Jamiroquai. Perhaps they’ve seen a few of their videos and one can easily make that assumption but the fact of the matter is that they are such an influential band musically and artistically. Jamiroquai is a derivative of the word “Jam” and the Native American Tribe “Iroquois” mixed together as one word but there is a much deeper meaning to the band’s name as they commemorate the tribe in a few of the songs from their first couple of albums. The centralized Native American theme is a representation on the subjugation of… [Read more]

As technology advances and women continue to roar with independence, it is only inevitable that age-old constructs meant to extend special privilege to one sex would fall apart in lieu of gender equality. Yes girls I am talking about that wonderful “chivalry” that you scream about being dead. The irony with chivalry is that in a perfect world it would extend to both sexes, but it hasn’t. When you want men to open doors, walk on the more dangerous part of the sidewalk, and pull out your chair then you should probably extend some courtesy too. You Are Not The Women of The 80’s and 90’s What has happened for so long that women got used to it, is that men would push, beg, and do whatever it takes to garner their interest. Now when younger, desirable men learn their worth, have accepted that women… [Read more]

Most people never set out to find and fall into a relationship for the wrong reasons, but it’s an unfortunately common process. Here are five of the wrong reasons to get involved in a relationship: #1: You Can’t Stand the Thought of Being Alone A lot of people prefer being miserable in a relationship than being single because “at least they are not alone”.  When you fear being alone, you’re much more likely to make bad choices and end up getting involved with and staying in bad relationships because it distracts you from feeling lonely. #2: You’re Getting Old and the Clock is Running Out A relationship should not be based on two people getting together because time is running out. Many women feel that 40 is the age where you should no longer have children because there is a higher risk of birth defects. … [Read more]
