Social media marketers

It may seem strange for me to say this considering what I do on the side marketing other people… but I wouldn’t buy or pay attention to 99% of the social media “gurus” out there. Most of them don’t have a damn clue what they are talking about. Also a lot of them steal ideas from other people and try to pawn it off as an original idea. That is weak as hell. If you can’t rub two brain cells together to come up with your own theories then guess what? You aren’t a strategist. You are a fucking tool that steals ideas because you are too dumb to come up with your own. Dwell on that and keep stealing I guess. That is the only thing you are good at apparently. Losers.

That includes people on Twitter, WordPress, and every platform you can think of. Everything you need to grow your network you can find for free. Paying for “tips” in some self proclaimed social media expert’s book that they probably cut and pasted to create makes you one thing. A chump.

A Nod to Poe

How sweet is the tender touch as I caress your every limb.

Our lips meet and thoughts collide on each and every sin.

Even as I take you into my warm embrace.

I smother the image by destroying your very grace.

Transforming now our reality to fantasy.

Pain brings the passion to ecstasy.

You shudder, I feel you tremor to your bones.

A sweet sensation adding to the quiet undertones.

Softly now, gently I lay you down.

I board you up inside with the golden crown.

And there dies the buried light.

Another name, another dove takes flight.

Apply To Be My Friend

You must fill out the survey to apply to be my friend. Failure to finish the survey will disqualify you.

1 – During an alien invasion who would you save first? Your family or me?

2 – A zombie has bitten me and I need you to cut off my limb before I turn into one. Would you do it? Would you then give me your arm so I can have two again. Obviously I would need the corresponding limb.

3 – Superman has decided to kick my ass for some reason and is looking for me. Would you agree to switch identities… temporarily of course. I can’t imagine you surviving that.

4 – Women are chasing me with knives and bats. Would you fly a helicopter above me and save me?

5 – There is one last donut left. Do you eat it or offer it to me? Do you eat it and pretend it wasn’t there even though I saw it and watched you eat it in front of me…

6 – I break my toe. Would you carry me across mountains, hills, deserts, and a river or two to get me to a hospital and save me?

7 – My Camry has an issue. Can you fix it? It really does have an issue.

8 – If you found Narnia would you leave it to come and get me even if there was a chance you couldn’t return? No? Selfish!

9 – Will you agree to “like” and “smiley” every update I make for the rest of our existence?

Please feel free to leave your responses below or simply let me know you qualify to be my friend. That would be great.

My Degree

I feel like people keep challenging my well thought out relationship advice and my degree from the Intergalactic Academy of Women so I took a photo of it.


If it looks like it was written in crayon that is due to the pixelation of your computer monitor. I highly suggest getting it replaced and maybe buying Samsung or LG. Support your local Korean. The person writing the degree was having some trouble with their hand so they had someone else finish. That signature at the bottom… well you don’t want to mess with her.

I hope this lays to rest any suspicion over the accuracy and professional relevance of my posts dealing with women and relationships. Thank you for reading.

Trickle

Trickle down broken crown.
My dreams seem to run.
Passing by without a sound.
From the sun they run.
Terrors of the night my friend.
Good things weren’t meant to be.
Terrors of the night are sent.
I run but cannot flee.
They say to wish upon a star,
But all the stars are taken.
Wishes and dreams they seem so far.
Maybe they were mistaken.

I’ll be in Florida soon. The waves remind me of Korea.

Blogging Me

I am not ashamed to show my shame. To show my humanity in the daylight where the world can judge me. To feel ashamed of being human is a shame in itself. We can only be what we were created to be. I will not spend my life fighting who I am. That is not a way to live. That is not living.

I am blogging me because no one else will. No one else will ever care to share with you my singular thoughts of the moment except for I. I move my pen because I want to. Because I feel myself being moved by my desire to experience emotion. Pushing some thoughts aside so that my spirit never dies. I examine my life while living it, while being me.

What moves you in this world? What will stay your hand? Will you allow the world to forget your name or will you force the world to acknowledge your existence daily… by blogging you.

Blogging me because it was meant to be. Because I am worth the effort.

Women are Crazy (The way to lose your female readers)

This is not a relationship blog, but occasionally I will write about and share some revolutionary facts that I discover in my life. Here is one fact that I would love to write about (but not discuss) women are crazy. I would go so far as to say “most” women are crazy and the funny part is they make sense to each other. That really is the kicker, because women can understand the craziness in one another, they then do not consider themselves crazy. Impeccable logic to be sure, it is hard to debate evidence so sound.

Women pick arguments on purpose. The only time men pick arguments on purpose is if we do not like someone, we are drunk, there is a Raider’s fan in the room, or we decide to act macho in front of our woman. Men do not often argue just to argue, do you know why ladies? We are lazy and it is hard to watch Sportscenter AND drink a beer while you argue. Ok, so why is women arguing so crazy? Because of the reason they do it, women argue and pick fights with men “to test their relationship.” That is the whole “if the rubber band breaks” concept that women are working on. They obviously haven’t heard of the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” concept that men love.

Women ask questions that they know the answers to. Guys, they still expect an answer. And God help you if the answer is not politically and socially correct. You may want to bring a cue card with a few facts and pointers to back up your answer, though those facts will help very little if your answer is different from hers. These actions by women can also be tests; you know those random pop quizzes we hated in school, well now we get them in marriage and long term relationships. Your girlfriend or wife has just become the teacher from hell.

Women really don’t care about your opinion most the time. You know “they” say that a good conversation is good dialogue between the two participants. Whoever “they” were, “they” were obviously not talking to a woman. A woman does not want your input on a topic she has already decided upon. You are allowed a couple head nods, a few confirmation noises (to let her know you are still listening), and a really big “you are absolutely right honey” near the end. That is all that is required, or better yet necessary, to successfully navigate through a conversation with a woman. One last thing, if you even dare to talk about a subject she knows nothing about just give up, women quickly grow bored with topics that don’t interest them. Notice the way she “sighs” and glances around the room every five minutes, those are your hints.

Give up trying to keep up with your wife or girlfriend’s social drama, whether at work or with her friends. Never side with Becky, her hated arch-rival, unless Becky is going to let you sleep on her couch. Do not dare and sympathize with Helga, her dictator of a boss, or your soup might taste a bit off tonight. If your wife is on Facebook just be prepared for monthly breakdowns and breakups. I think women came up with the term “BFF” so they could have one more thing to break up with in this world. Women are crazy.
