Double Feature

Standard

I own two movies about losers who work in a music store and have emotional crises and have kickass soundtracks.

Tonight, I watched them both.

Started out with Empire Records (Remix! Special Fan Edition) in all its quotable awesomeness.

Moved on to High Fidelity because it just seemed like the logical follow-up.

I highly recommend both movies and watching them together. You will want to fill your MP3 player by the time you are done.

Helping the World

Standard

I know that most guys don’t like being told to change things about their appearance, how they act, their grooming habits, etc.

However, I also know that there are a lot of great single men out there who have no idea why they are still single.

I think the problem is that these men just don’t know how to market themselves properly. You can sell damn near anything if you package it the right way and position it to the right buyer. I think some of these men just need help with their packaging and their positioning.

At least, that’s what my friend Liz and I decided the other night over dinner. We were discussing a few mutual male friends and noticed that they both just weren’t aware of a few things that are blindingly obvious to the female eye.

One guy is proud of the fact that he can still wear clothes that he wore in high school. Dude just turned 30.

Another guy took a girl out to dinner and a movie and was thrown off when she thought of it as a date and he thought of it as two friends just getting together and hanging out.

Both men have potential, they just aren’t aware of it or how women are looking at them.

Liz and I want to change that.

We’re also aware of the fact that women probably aren’t showing their best sides to men, either. We plan to change that, as well.

I’ll be creating another blog soon where we will start posting our suggestions to the world. Does anybody have a name suggestion, tagline suggestion or even just a general suggestion of what we can add to the blog?

The categories we have come up with so far are:

Grooming
Clothing
Attitude
Dates
Household

Help us help the world! Give us your suggestions and feedback and I will be sure to post a link when the blog goes live.

Southwest vs. Kevin Smith

Standard

I went to Phoenix last February to visit my grandma. It was a fun trip (hi, Grandma!) and I had a great time. She was nice enough to buy me tickets on Southwest to get out there and back. I have to admit, I was scared I’d be told I had to buy another ticket when I got to the counter or on the plane because you know what? I’m fat and Southwest doesn’t like fat.

I was so worried that what happened to Kevin Smith would happen to me.

I was going to get on here and rant about it for a bit, but Kate Harding from Salon.com has written the response that I wanted to say.

I’m going to go see Kevin Smith when he comes to town next month. I’m betting he won’t be flying Southwest to Kansas City.

Spinning

Standard

Spinning up some hand dyed alpaca. It’ll eventually become a two-ply of gorgeousness.
