Lesson Learned


, , ,

If you’re a follower of me on Twitter, you’ll know I’m in the exploratory phase of starting a podcast. Last night, I sat down in front of my computer, opened Audacity, hit “record” and started talking into my microphone. 46 minutes later I hit stop, satisfied.

After doing some basic editing (Noise canceling, deleting some of my longer pauses) I saved the project. Now for some reason I canceled that action, then deleted the files that appeared on my desktop (I was surprised at the size of the data for some reason). Thinking these were temps, I emptied the recycle bin and moved back to Audacity.

This was my one big mistake.

I then exported the project to an mp3 format then opened up the file to listen to it.


Although I could see the waveform on my screen, the project had nothing in it. A “Save As” didn’t help at all and since I permanently deleted the original data, I couldn’t restore it.

I cursed, then started laughing at my mistake. Yeah, I did just flush maybe 2 hours worth of work down the drain, but I did gain some experience with this for my upcoming second attempt.

I learned a valuable lesson for next time, mainly let the project finish saving before doing anything!

Manosphere Rage


, , , , ,

We’ve all seen it. With some of the popular writers in this part of the internet having hundred of comments on their posts, these guys always show up:  the Rage-filled commentor.

You know the type if you’ve been around long enough. They’ve been dumped or divorced and hate all women (don’t lie to yourselves, you actually do). Feminism and hypergamy is their constant excuse for failings with women. Empty and soulless hedonism is their only goal. They spend hours upon hours online debating and discussing essentially nonsense in comment threads and message boards/fora.

To be honest, it’s these guys that makes me glad that I read most blogs (which have been getting smaller in number with the passing of time) via Feedly instead of visiting the site itself. There’s no value in reading something that boils down to “I’m blaming this external thing for my problems instead of owing up to my fuck up and learning from it.”


In Aaron Clarey’s most recent podcast (concerning this RoK article, the fun starts at 33:27), he rips into these guys and calls them out as the pathetic keyboard jockeying theorists and virgins that they are.

And you know what, he’s absolutely right.

If you’re supposedly “red pill,” “all about self-improvement,” and an “Alpha Male” how are you actually doing said improvement when you’re online in front of your computer all day?

Are you actually looking to improve yourself, or are you just adopting a suitable and convenient ideology in order to find a target to blame?

You constantly shout to the metaphorical rooftops that “marriage is for chumps/betas/losers” and to not get in any actual meaningful relationships with women because “she’ll just dump you anyways.” Then you wonder why you’re usually alone?

Do all those meaningless “Internet Alpha Male points” you’ve “earned” matter, because you spend 99% of your time hate-masturbating in comment sections and fora in an attempt to suck up to and rubber-stamp the site owner’s point of view, even if you disagree at a visceral level?

Have you actually talked with real girls or are you just making stuff up about all the “feminist” girls you so happen to come across in your daily life, even though they only exist on the internet?

Why the vitriol?

Why the rage?

What’s YOUR actual issue?


On the internet, nobody knows that you’re a dog.

Maybe I’m just simple-minded, but I don’t see the value (or point really) in “proving” to some faceless person on the internet that you’re this Real Alpha Male™. Are you that afraid of being labeled a “Beta?” Do you really need acceptance in a group that badly? Who gives a shit?

If you feel the need to savage me since I don’t have a triple-digit notch count, a soft harem, or am not making my money online, go ahead. I really don’t give a shit. How do I know that what you’re saying is truthful and not internet boasting? At the end of the day, I go to sleep each night with a clear conscience because I don’t have to constantly lie about my accomplishments or big myself up for street cred.


Alpha and Beta are useless and meaningless terms as of this point.

I get the whole point of the Alpha/Beta thing and its popularity as a topic/trope, but some of you guys should really sit down and shut the fuck up about it for once. The Alpha/Beta dichotomy is an okay model framework of illustrating the current sexual marketplace, but its current definitions are so watered down and so all-encompassing as to render them absolutely meaningless.

If you ever have worried about whether action XYZ is “Alpha” or “Beta,” you do not have the conceptual understanding of the actual meaning of the words and for the most part, you never will.

RealAlphaMale™1:  “Durrr, I just had a threesome with two Playboy models and said that I liked the pretty eyes of the blonde afterwards. WAS THAT BETA??!!?!?”

RealAlphaMale™2:  “Durrr, unless you did her anally BETA TO THE MAX!!! βββ!1!!”

You’re talking jargon and technobabble. Don’t talk like a retard.

You all claim to be “Alpha” in your own right because you’ve supposedly “taken the red pill” and can now “see the matrix.” You start going out, having a bunch of un-fulfilling one-night stands with “9’s” *cough*6’s*cough*, eventually getting an STD and later nearly get accused of rape once. You post on the comment sections of multiple blogs and a few fora hoping for a upvote/rep point/reply/featured comment by the proprietor. Congratulations, you’re an official Manosphere Real Alpha Male™ now!

What you actually are is someone who’s pathetically looking for validation from a father-figure and for a person to blindly follow.

Which by the way isn’t what a “leader of men” actually does.


Usually, I try to end my posts with something positive but in this case I just can’t. There is a cancer of extreme negativity in this corner of the internet that will consume all in its path. You see it with the constant bitching, whining, and complaining about feminism, for example. Just because a big name gets his jollies (and probably money via clicks) from trolling feminists doesn’t mean you have to dive and swim in the same rotting cesspool he boxed himself into.

It’s fucking depressing to see what once was “write on how to get better at stuff” has now become “write listicle clickbait to go viral due to outrage trolling.”

For the guys that are genuinely out to help others (often without compensation or out of their own pockets), thank you for your time.

For the rest of you who see the Red Pill as a way to shuttle your personal issues onto something else, or those who enter solely with the purpose of making a quick and dishonest buck, go fuck yourself. Take your vitriol, your hate, and your $9.99 50 page ebooks and get the fuck out you scum sucking lowlife weak-minded pieces of shit. You are no longer welcome nor can be considered as a fellow denizen of the Manosphere.

Red Pill Orgasm by Halfbreed


, , , , ,


In a part of the internet that specifically (and to be frank, only) goes for one-night stands, the idea of making sure that the girl has an orgasm is preposterous and ludicrous. If you’re never going to see that “slut” again, why should you care if she got off or not? You got yours, right? So what if she didn’t?

The “I got mine, so fuck you” mindset is something only a selfish, immature child would have. While this might be a “proper” strategy for drunken you’ll-never-see-her-again hookups, it’s not a particularly great method for maintaining a healthy sexual relationship. Unless you have some kind of emotional issue or you’re sleeping with a lot of low-quality girls (fat, ugly, crazy), you would want to have some “repeat business,” and the drunken “pump-cum-leave” method won’t cut the mustard.

Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but I am of the belief that the sex act should be pleasurable for both participants. So it was refreshing to come across Halfbreed’s concise yet information dense ebook:  Red Pill Orgasm.

This book is geared towards both beginners with little or no experience and for those who want to up their sex game to the next level.

“For many men, the female orgasm is a mystery. This guide will help. I’ll show you the most efficient ways to make women cum hard.”

Halfbreed does a fantastic job of walking you through the steps of becoming the guy girls brag to their friends about.

While you don’t actually get to the sex tips until the middle of the book, I found that the opening chapters are the most important because they address the basics that many guys probably don’t think about. For instance, if the girl has some sexual hangup, there’s a high probability that she won’t orgasm no matter what you do. He also stresses the importance of dealing with any issues you may have yourself, whether they be health, sexual, or mentally related.

I found the information in the foreplay chapter to be spot on with my own personal experiences via trial-and-error.

“Don’t rush foreplay. Your goal should be to build up the tension by delaying penetration for as long as possible.”

Moving on from foreplay and oral sex (if you like cunnilingus), you move into the meat of the guide, the chapters on sexual technique and positions. Since each chapter builds on the next one, foreplay and oral sex leads to penetration. Penetration leads to thrusting technique and hip movement. Thrusting and hip movement lead to different sex positions, and so on.

I found the chapter on Energy work to be a bit New Age-y, but considering Halfbreed’s background in Tai Chi and Chi Kung I can see where he’s coming from. Controlling movement of energy in your body could be solution to those that suffer from premature ejaculation or for those looking to last longer than they normally do.

Also there’s a few chapters in the end covering the more “advanced” topics like rough sex and anal sex, for those inclined.

To round it all off there’s a checklist at the end of the book that summarizes each of the main points of the chapters to give you a refresher in case you forgotten something and don’t want to search through the text for it.

So if you’re looking for a no-nonsense, no-BS book on making a woman cum hard, Halfbreed’s Red Pill Orgasm is the book with the vital information you need to have on your nightstand!

Did a Return of Kings Author Fabricate a Scenario to Help Support His Later Argument?


, , , , ,

For some reason or another in the past few months I began reading RoK again (I don’t remember why). While there are a few good authors there (Kyle and Runsonmagic, for example), the rest I usually skip past after reading the first sentence/paragraph or so. Those in the “skips” are usually, in my opinion, crap.

I’m looking for grain, not chaff.

Usually, I approach each article with an open mind before deciding. However, when I read the latest piece from RoK’s supposed “Chief Investigative Journalist” Douglas, I was taken aback (emphasis mine):

I was blasting some paper at the range one day, to practice to keep my pimp hand strong, when a man struck up a conversation with me. Usually the discussions at the pistol range coalesce around politics and what weapons to buy. Well into this gentleman’s rant about the Second Amendment, current denizens of Washington DC and policies of ”blue” states, I noticed something. He was shooting a Kimber 45 caliber pistol. I interrupted his tirade and asked him that if he does not support the various policies of the states of New Jersey and New York, why did he purchase a product from those states. He stood there for a minute and contemplated the realization that his beliefs were inconsistent with his actions.

Nice straw man you built up and knocked over, Douglas.

Maybe it’s because I’m just not as enlightened because I have a STEM degree, but I know faulty logic when I see it.

Basically, his argument is that you shouldn’t buy a product from companies you support because they’re headquartered in a State you hate. Or, with this specific example, you should bankrupt Kimber because Cuomo is a gun-grabbing idiot Liberal (h/t Thirty Days to X).

Shall we all spite our faces by cutting off our noses now?


I’m going to go out on a limb and flat-out say he invented this whole scenario based on a few things:

First, with every indoor and outdoor range that I’ve been to I have never, ever, seen anyone have a heated conversation like this while shooting due to the ear protection you’re required to wear to stop hearing damage from the loud reports of the rifles and pistols (that whole “safety” thing). Also you’re there to shoot your gun, not chew the fat with the guy in the next lane. Now if you’re waiting for a lane because it’s busy, different story, but I’ve never observed that occurring either.

Second, the “guy” he describes talking to him sounds like a typical leftist caricature of a Tea Party supporter or Conservative (for comparison and reference, this author also has recently written “The Republican Party Needs to Go Away” Parts One and Two).

Third, in the real world a normal person would say “Um, that doesn’t make any sense, can you explain that better?” and not be “completely shut down” by an obviously dubious and weak argument.

Fourth, if I saw that “guy’s” gun I would first think “1911” before thinking “Kimber” like an average person who actually has some gun knowledge.

Fifth, why not say Kimber 1911? He already states he shoot guns, so why the odd description, as all 1911s are chambered for .45 ACP? Calling it a “Kimber 45 caliber pistol” is just about as broad as you can be (since they also make rifles too). It would be like me describing my M1903 rifle as a “Springfield 30 caliber rifle” or my pistols as “Sig Sauer 9mm pistol” and “Walther 22 pistol”

Hell, even a few of the commentors thought this position didn’t make any sense!


I stand by my original position that RoK has jumped the shark, and the quality of the writing there will only get worse and more clickbaity as time passes. I’m not a Super-Red Pill Alpha Male™ though, so who the hell am I to criticize, right?

La Biblioteca di Beppo: Southern Victory Series by Harry Turtledove


, , , ,

Recently, I finished up the last book in Harry Turtledove’s Southern Victory/Timeline-191 series.  While they were fascinating reads initially, I put down the later books more and more to read other stuff.

I enjoy well written alternate history.  Turtledove’s earlier works, the Alternate History/Sci-Fi novel “Guns of the South” and the two novels covering the Japanese occupation of Hawaii following the Pearl Harbor attack (“Days of Infamy” and “End of the Beginning“), convinced me that this relatively long series was worth adding to my “to read” list.

What I did like was the alternative world that Turtledove built, because you could imagine that this would’ve happened if the South won the Civil War (“War of Succession” in the books).  He also illustrates the difference of this world by using different words for objects. For example, “wireless” instead of “radio,” “Y-range” instead of “Radar,” “Barrel” instead of “Tank,” and “superbomb” instead of “atom bomb.”

Even though the world he built was vivid and full of characters with different personalities, I did have some complaints the more I read into the series.

First, It was galling to read over and over again about how the Northern tobacco was terrible in comparison to the South’s.  It seemed as though Turtledove needed to keep mentioning this just to boost his word-count (the biggest complaint on Amazon’s reviews actually).  Second, some of the secondary characters were in the story much longer than necessary (the coffeehouse owner who was a former whore and hated men because of it, and the well-educated black butler are examples).  Turtledove seemed to realize this in the midst of writing and remedied this problem by abruptly killing the character off.  Third, he tried really hard to create in the CSA a Nazi Party analog, the rise of a Hitler-like character, and the set up for the later genocide of “undesirables.”  However, the effort fell flat.  No matter what this Party did in his books, the real world Nazis did things much more brutally and efficiently.  I’ve read enough about Nazi Germany to know this for a fact.  Finally, it felt as though he rushed out the later books just to finish up and get the arc over with, as the quality of the writing wasn’t up to par with his earlier books.

Overall, I did enjoy the books.  So if you’re interested in alternative history, this series is worth checking out.

A full review of each book (or series) would give away much of the story and plot, so I list a main point or two from each of the books.

How Few Remain

    • Twenty years after the South defeated the North, war breaks out once again due to the CSA purchasing some territory from Mexico

The Great War (American Front, Walk in Hell, Breakthroughs)

    • Covers what happens on the American continent after the assassination of the Archduke; where the USA and the CSA are drawn into fighting each other due to their respective alliances to Germany and France/Britain
    • Also, graphically details the horrors of trench warfare happening in America

American Empire (Blood and Iron, The Center Cannot Hold, The Victorious Opposition)

    • These novels correspond to the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression years

Settling Accounts (Return Engagement, Drive to the East, The Grapple, In at the Death)

    • These final four, and the longest of the bunch, novels cover the lead up to the second World War, the actual fighting, and its conclusion following the deployment of nuclear bombs
