Hatin’ On Utica Datin’

Another dating rant, this one based on a 2009 article in the Observer-Dispatch about the dating scene in Utica.

If you’re interested, I did find a link to the “He Said” portion of the article:¬†http://www.uticaod.com/article/20090416/NEWS/304169882


Frozen Dating Rants

In this week’s podcast, I discuss why the movie Frozen continues to remain popular after more than two years. Also I do a couple of dating rants with one of them about why American men go for foreign women and a little look at Utica dating as well as a review of the 60’s Batman movie and a couple of short stories from my Tales of the Blackcat series.

Let’s Talk Movies

An all-new podcast where I read an old article from my local newspaper the Utica Observer-Dispatch about movie recommendations to fit the mood of every boy and girl. Also I review one of the greatest revenge movies ever made, count down my top 10 favorite movies of all time and do a dating rant about not paying to use online dating sites.

Here In The Real World

The other day, I was reading an article in the advice column in the Fusion newspaper, which is basically a free newspaper from the publishers of the Observer-Dispatch. In that article, a person was complaining about how good things happened to bad people such as the bad guy getting the much sought-after promotion at work and marrying a person that he/she did not deserve and so on. I thought that the article was really interesting. It is very rare that I actually read newspaper articles that actually make me think because in a way, I deal with issues like this on a daily basis.

In fact, I spent nearly my whole life dealing with issues like this. I too have to deal with work issues, dating issues (as in lack of getting a date in my case), success issues, and so on. Who doesn’t in today’s world? It’s like they say, “Chivalry’s dead.” And of course I do believe that life is unfair. I probably know that better than most.

It also reminds me of Alan Jackson’s first song, “Here in the Real World,” which was released in 1989. In that song he compares real life to life in the old cowboy movies where the boy always gets the girl and good always wins. Everyone, myself included, wants life to be that way, it’s not that easy in the real world where everything is in reverse.

But then again, good things can happen, even if they don’t happen fast enough. Wait a minute, did I say that? Of course I have a rep for being impatient because my life isn’t going the way I want it to and I have good reason to. The biggest reason is the fact that I am not getting any younger. Something has got to happen soon.
