Everything Else

I was winging with Senor Blanco yesterday and we were discussing the direction of our blogs and our aims for the current and following year. I won’t step on his toes and go over what he was thinking about - which would in some way commit him to a plan he may not yet want … Continue reading Everything Else

Fueled by Randomness

Randomness is quite often a good thing; let’s look at why in this Taleb-inspired post. One of the questions many Daygamers asks themselves is ‘how many sets should I do?’ ‘How many sets is enough?’ ‘How many sets constitutes a hard day’s work?’ In other words (with regards to the last one): ‘how many sets … Continue reading Fueled by Randomness

Narcissism, Kafka and Game

*Spoilers below* I recently finished the Wordsworth Classics Essential Kafka; my verdict: Kafka was a massive narcissist. As I read through the unfinished novels and short stories I pieced together evidence to support that claim: Kafka’s relationship with his perfectionist father; the presence of an oppressive authority (the narcissist’s super-ego); the fact that his main … Continue reading Narcissism, Kafka and Game

#64: Long Live the Car Crash Hearts (Analysis)

The Time of Day: it turns out the pussy paradise isn’t a place, it’s a time… man. Jokes aside it’s worth thinking about. I think 11am to 1pm has a higher ROI for me than, say, 2pm to 4pm. Someone more extroverted than me would say that 11pm to 1am has a higher ROI because … Continue reading #64: Long Live the Car Crash Hearts (Analysis)

#63: (And Die With Your Mask On If You’ve Got To) (Analysis)

Afterwork Daygame: everyone knows it’s a ballache to pack up at work, head home, whack your Daygame gear on and then head out with an effective vibe. One way to get over this particular difficulty is to make it as easy for yourself as possible. Don’t tell yourself your going to “hit the streets hard” … Continue reading #63: (And Die With Your Mask On If You’ve Got To) (Analysis)

#63: (And Die With Your Mask On If You’ve Got To)

It was a humid, overcast and sticky summer evening and I was out solo (T). So far I’d reeled off three sets and got one number: an American girl who was only in town for the weekend. She never came out (T). I turned onto Oxford Street and started making my way towards Tottenham Court … Continue reading #63: (And Die With Your Mask On If You’ve Got To)
