Many of us have had ideas that we wanted to turn into reality. Most of us sit on it, tell everyone we know about it, and let it drift off into the clouds of “what-ifs”. We are satisfied that everyone either said it was a good idea, or give up after learning that it has already been invented. Then there are those strange folks who think of things, build them, and then fly overseas with little else but a dream in order to get a factory to manufacture it… Most of us don’t know too many people like this but guess what? I got to sit down with one of these crazy people in order to pick their brains on what it takes to bring an idea into reality. It was a late night when I visited Master Hoon Park’s dojo “J Park Martial Arts”… [Read more]

Have you ever been out with a girl and she runs into her ex or another male friend, doesn’t introduce you, and the conversation turns into a lengthy one? Of course you have, we all have, but what did you do? Did you fidget, did you force an introduction, or did you make a scene? When this situation occurs, you can’t help but feel like a fool and you will either walk off to find something else to do, or stand there looking lonely and awkward. There is a way out of this awkward situation if you’re willing to listen, but it lies in the aspect of “becoming that guy” at the opportune moment. Normally a good girl will introduce you to the guy so that you aren’t left stranded, but some won’t remember and you will be left to fade into the background like a theater prop. If this is the… [Read more]

People always say that its only when pet peeves and annoyance comes into play that you realize how much you are willing to put up with when it comes to dating. Once you know how much you are willing to put up with (and what you definitely are not) you tend to migrate towards and settle with someone who fits that mold. Then there’s that woman.  We all know who she is. The one who for whatever reason makes her issues the sole controller of her emotions when she meets someone and gets close to a real relationship.  It almost seems that she is more comfortable when she is getting screwed over, doesn’t it? I have known women in the past who have put up with a lot of wrongdoing and they truly didn’t deserve it.  Makes me think that nice girls really do finish last.  It’s like when… [Read more]

bald woman holding head

“Ugly is a field without grass, a plant without leaves, or a head without hair.”
Ovid “The Silent Woman” The meaning of being bald as a woman: “What does it mean to be bald as a woman?” One possible sentiment might be “Oh, she is beautiful!” and as exampled in the following quote, typically this comment is reserved for the woman who lost her crown to the fight against cancer: “A bald woman on chemo is beautiful.” Yes, being bald as a woman often represent sickness, or maybe just getting old–er. Then there are those of you who are more forward thinkers and can rattle off the names of beautiful iconic bald-headed women in the entertainment industry who are not cancer survivors such as Amber Rose, Megan Fox, and Erykah Badu. Many of whom a shaved head is a matter of style or stance and choice… [Read more]

I am a hardcore reader. This has been true since I was a young boy sneaking through my mother’s novels, up until now where I fly through about two books a week. Reading has never been a bother; it has been a privilege. When I first started to think about writing a book, I was going to make it an extension of the Hall, and expound upon a topic that I felt would be helpful to our young men. My aim was to write a book about confidence. I wanted to show boys how to attain it, through proven methods, and personal ones that have helped me through the years. When I got to about 30,000 words I began to do research on reader demographics, and what I found knocked the wind out of my sails. I put a stop to the book, which I… [Read more]

When I sat down recently to interview New York-based starlet Cameron Hill, it was difficult to reconcile this outspoken young woman with the playful former elementary school classmate I had once known. Gone were the ribbons and pigtails, and in their place was an obvious confidence and unforced sex appeal, which is ironic, since she pointedly denied seeing herself as sexy. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVEN’T HEARD OF MS. HILL…. ….You must be living under a rock. Just ask any New Yorker about the “Pum Pum Song” and they’ll tell you all about Cameron Hill. With a lyrically raunchy first offering on her EP and the Reverbnation Songwriting Competition win under her belt, Cameron Hill is set to follow in the footsteps of other successful Caribbean artistes such as Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. A MUSICAL AWAKENING With a background in gymnastics, swimming, and water… [Read more]

You’ve heard it before, hell every male has heard it before, but in practice you may have tried it and failed miserably. How do you show confidence without coming off as a total douche to the opposite sex? Well if you have to ask, chances are you haven’t been doing well in this department.  Confidence is second nature to a truly confident person,  it is shown in his walk, his talk and the way he performs in every day life. So the question really should be, “how do I become confident?” Here are a few tips to help you along the path: Do not evaluate yourself through the eyes of others When you look to others to give you confirmation in your life, you end up missing out on personal choices that could have made you happy. It will also allow you to become motivated by mediocrity. If… [Read more]

pretty woman, exotic beauty, lady in orange, sexy eyes, pretty brown eyes

The most popular article on this site has been The Curse of Being A Beautiful Woman due to the amount of commentary and discussion that it has gained. I wrote the article not to pander to beauties but because I wanted to share my unpopular belief that pretty women are ostracized and shunned due to a number of reasons. The comments that spawned from my opinion has been a combination of outsiders (non-beauties and men) denying that beautiful women have a problem and pretty women willing to share their experiences. It has taught me that my observances were correct and that people online as much as in life have a very serious issue with looks. Upon reading the commentary on the beauty article there was one other trend that surfaced which I dislike more than anything else: People who self-identify as “pretty”, “cute”, “cool”, or… [Read more]
