Twittercide – when you destroy or come close to destroying your career, character and relationships by tweeting offensive vitriol in 140 characters or less. This week the awful game Duke Nukem Forever came out and was lambasted by game review sites all over the internet. One spaz by the name of Jim Redner who owns The Redner Group that once represented 2K Games (the company that released Duke Nukem) took it upon himself to commit Twittercide through the following tweet: “Too many went too far with their reviews… we r reviewing who gets games next time and who doesn’t based on today’s venom” Well needless to say Jimmy’s attempt at a blacklisting rant backfired and his little company was dropped by 2K Games about as fast as it took him to click “tweet”… then came a mile long apology letter from him to try and… [Read more]

Let me tell you something, I cannot seem to settle on one thing at a time in my life and the blame can fall squarely on the grind. For years I juggled a managerial position at a day job with my own online business and I only mastered the art when it came to a social life coupled with love. There are many of you out there who like myself live the equivalent of 3 lives worth of effort. The term “doing too much” is the mantra of the lazy but for the workaholic the saying is “there aren’t enough hours in the day”. I have imagined the ability to freeze time in order to do the millions of things in my head and the ultimate vacation would be quiet time away from people and responsibilities. At this point I am either echoing your thought… [Read more]

A friend of mine recently came to realize that a lifelong friend of hers only called her when she needed something. She has known this friend for over 25 years yet this realization just dawned on her – how is this possible? Knowing her well, I realized that it’s due to her being a super nice, unselfish person with a bleeding heart. Kind people are so locked into helping others out that they tend to put their own feelings to the side and in doing that miss out on the fact that they are being used. This is even worse in relationships, a woman who cooks, cleans and pays part of the rent will not notice that all her man does is eat and play video games. Not everybody has the good conscience to check themselves when they are being a user. They will come… [Read more]

“There is much more… than dressing funny and sweet talking prostitutes” There has been homages made and props given to Pimps in the Hip Hop industry since time immortal and people listen to it, get interested, accept it as truth and forego the research into their reality. When I see people of my culture refer to themselves as Pimps or Pimpin it makes me shake my head at the ignorance – but how can I blame them when the game is still so much of a secret? Pimps are gamers and the high profile ones have written books, done documentaries and sold us a tale that is only about 10% factual of their lives. We look and laugh at their gaudy dress,  but there is much more to a pimp than dressing funny and sweet talking prostitutes. Breaking in New Girls If you haven’t a… [Read more]

I live in Florida, a state that I like to regard as the boob  job capital of America. Girls here for the longest time have been enhancing themselves with mixed results from the male population because I will be the first to  say that tits and ass don’t automatically make you sexy – excuse my frankness. You either have it or you don’t, some have it hidden and can bring it out by learning how to walk, talk and play the part but if you’re wack, you’re wack and the only person that can change that was your creator. In other words some people need to quit while they’re ahead. Now I’m not naïve, I know that girls being teased, ignored or dissed will lead them to go under the knife but this article is for women that are already sexy as hell who still… [Read more]

There’s nothing like a real hug, I mean this from men and women, a real hug conveys so much language to you it bypasses any well written letters, any speeches and any other gestures. A real hug breaks down your defenses, it’s hard to defend if you are trying to be cold, and it either endears a person to you or makes you afraid of them. If you’ve ever felt a real hug, you will know exactly what I’m talking about. Giving a real hug isn’t some thing people do as a way to manipulate, console or appease you. From what I’ve seen, it’s an art that is mastered to the point that anyone you hug can and will instantly be affected. Many of us hold the ability to do it but we wouldn’t, not in a million years, it’s just too vulnerable, too intimate,… [Read more]

Everyone has heard people use the term “keeping up with the Joneses”.  Many people make the mistake of buying into that as some sort of complete truth.  How you carry yourself is often just as important as what you’re wearing, and only one of those things can be flat-out bought with cash.  Status does matter in this world depending on the situation, but people often apply their status pursuits in the wrong way.  Buying material goods won’t get you the status that you are looking for, and people think the more they buy, the more their status meter is going to rise.  They could not be any farther from the truth. 1) Status should be about Self Confidence, not Material Worth Status is not simple, but it has more to do with confidence than wealth. This isn’t to say that it’s completely independent of wealth,… [Read more]

It’s always a good idea to balance out harsh living with something delicate. This can be any number of things that relaxes you and puts you in a different state of mind than that of work and stress. In feudal times the samurai would tend to gardens and were adept at flower arranging. Flower tending would be what they used to balance out the harshness of Bushido – the warrior’s lifestyle. The Samurai took great pride in their gardens; they were perfect, well-tended and treated with love. While the modern day warrior, whose war is the concrete jungle and the offices of his building, may not have the wont or have the capabilities to tend to a garden, he can and should find others ways to wind down. I would urge that non-artistic personalities find something artistic to do in their spare time.  An accountant… [Read more]
