#403: Self-Criticism is Great and So is Comprimise

https://www.the-elbowroom.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Self-Criticism.png

Good evening, ladies and gentleman! Welcome back to my weekly blow-hard fest! And tonight, the wind blows so hard about:

  • Why being hard on yourself in a focused way is the best thing for you
  • Why single people who get pregnant on purpose are insane
  • What my beloved Philadelphia Eagles taught me in the best seasons we’ve ever had (NEXT MAN UP!)
  • Weekly confessional story from past-douche Jordan
  • We go a little long tonight as I wrap up the show going on a lengthy rant about compromise, essentially giving you an extended preview for my political show, “Calm the F–k Down with Alex and Jordan.”

Enjoy! email me! sensitiveniceguy@gmail.com

Tonight, I discuss what I’ve learned doing 400 episodes of the SNG SHOW…can you believe it? I can’t.

In no particular order…

  1. Always be a Mixed Mental Artist.
  2. Understand that every day is a gift
  3. When you put something online, why are you doing it?
  4. Dating is a rollercoaster; enjoy the ride
  5. Follow the SNG rules for long-term happiness
  6. Thing aren’t going to happen to you; make things happen
  7. Things will happen to you; play your cards right
  8. Every bad thing is a learning experience if you decide to make it so
  9. Learn when to stand up for yourself, and when is always
  10. Use Active Thinking and Observe your Gremlin
  11. Write down your, “Best You.”
  12. Write down your major life goals…and start walking
  13. If you’re bored, you’re doing it wrong
  14. Everyone is listening. Act accordingly
  15. The Worst People you will meet in life can be your best teachers if you let them
  16. Admit your faults. Out loud. Observe. Again, the Gremlin
  17. Some days are just gonna suck. Tomorrow will be better
  18. Be grateful, always

#393: The Rollercoaster of Life Goes On

 

ChloeTonight’s a wacky one; be warned, I bounce around tone-wise.

I begin with the sad news that my cat Chloe has cancer, then give further thoughts on Hurricane Harvey, Kevin, and Louis CK. After that, I switch gears and talk about the 70’s baby book , “Where did I come from?” and then attack morons who think they are entitled to getting autographs from underage celebrities.

As my son comes into this world, my cat prepares to go out. Needless to say, it’s been a rough couple of weeks.

#391: How to Avoid Annoying People at Bars

http://www.dcclubbing.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/pickup.jpgTonight, I spend the first 15 minutes explaining how to get rid of annoying people who mistake your polite smile for life-long friendship. Then, I ramble a bit about the end of an era. After that, I answer some wacky Quora questions. I also have some fun with people who look like the tattoo monster puked all over them. Enjoy!

#389: Harvey Weinstein and Absolute Power

https://i1.wp.com/www.thebarbedwiresatire.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/6a1-1.jpg?resize=466%2C369
He’s not sorry for what he’s done. He’s sorry because he got caught. You can’t turn a cake into a pizza.

Good evening! Tonight, I wax poetic about:

  • Dating advice about how you should leave your ex’s alone unless you know exactly what you want from them
  • Why we lose interest in people
  • Quick thoughts on, “Blade Runner 2049.”
  • And most of all, Harvey f—king Weinstein, his crew of enablers, and what it means to be truly brave

Enjoy!

#385: Finally…

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/mC1ikwQ5Zgc/maxresdefault.jpg

I’m not there yet, but I got closer last weekend.

I also wax poetic about class warfare in the Kingsman movie, why you shouldn’t settle (again), the sex-addiction drama, “Shame,” and fears I’m having as a parent-to-be. Enjoy!

#383: A Single Person’s Proper Mentality

http://www.bostonmagazine.com/images/uploads/articles/Singles590(3451).jpg

Tonight, I’m going deep on my failures of being a raging coward. Granted, I am completely ignoring the times that I was Sade’s Sweetest Taboo, but such is the life of someone still struggling with self-loathing. At least you might get something out of it.

THEN:

Life happens, and the last 3rd (or so) is about the recent Joss Whedon cluster-f from his ex-wife. I have a more nuanced position the most, at least I’d like to think so.

Enjoy!

#380: How to Break Up With Someone: Revisited

Good evening! Tonight, I wax poetic about:

  • Why you should check out a lecture on gardening even if that’s the last thing you should do
  • The awesomeness that is Tony Bennet
  • How to Break Up With Someone Properly
  • Something women (in general) are dead wrong about, and how their men should handle it
  • And oh so much more

Enjoy!

#379: The Big Sick and Cross-Cultural Dating

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/6/69/The_Big_Sick.jpg

Good evening! Tonight, I wax poetic and shoot the breeze about:

  • The pitfalls one encounters when you date outside of your own, “tribe.”
  • A review of the recent film on the above subject, “The Big Sick.”
  • I also watched the first three episodes of, “GLOW,” and the jury is still out.
  • The kind of man I want Jack to grow up to be, and why that isn’t necessarily a good thing

Enjoy!

Good evening, what’s going on? Tonight, I wax my board about

  • Further thoughts on Netflix’s, “13 Reasons Why.” I finished the show and read the book as well.
  • Slate’s article criticizing the show. I agree with some of it. I think.
  • Regrets I’m still having about the past and how the show triggered some things. Yes. Triggered.
  • Re-watching, “True Blood.”

#376: Tell Them Why You Dumped Them

https://cdn.meme.am/cache/instances/folder982/75574982.jpg

Good evening! Tonight, I wax poetic about:

  • Why it’s a good idea to ask someone why they dumped you
  • Why I am now 40 but feel 32
  • Review of the second season of, “Master of None.”
  • Why, “Bambi,” is the best movie about how to be a man
  • And more!

Good evening and happy HUMP day everyone! Tonight, I rant about turning 40 (next week) and becoming a Dad this December (a real one, sorry Chloe), as well as the wonderful, “F is for Family,” and a few dating stories that make my skin crawl (but everything was my fault). Enjoy!
