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!

#388: The Grand Canyon, Patience and Humility

North Rim, Grand Canyon, AZ
North Rim, Grand Canyon, AZ

 

 

 

 

 

Good evening! I’m back, and tonight, I discuss (among other things) why everyone needs to not just go to the Grand Canyon some day, but hike rim to rim at least once in their lives. It doesn’t cure all of your emotional ills, but it certainly does do damage to the demons in your heart. Enjoy!

Envy and Infatuation

#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!
