42

The year will be over in just a few hours, and with it goes me being 41. I turn 42 tomorrow (don't recall what time exactly I was born). I'd say that the worst part about being 42 is all the older people who always have shit to say like "that's nothing, try being (insert older age)!". Well who the hell asked you, anyway???
 
 
But being older does come with benefits. Mostly experience that hopefully makes you wiser. Here's just a few things i've learned in 42 years on this planet....
 
** Physical fitness is important. The more you do at a young age the better your body will feel at an older age, as well as slowing down the aging process.
 
** Most older men are fantastic in bed. Even as a younger guy I always had the best sex with older dudes. More often than not they know how to please a man, whereas their younger, hotter counterparts may look good naked, but sadly, in most cases that's all they have going for them, because many (not all, but a lot) will leave you wondering "is that all there is???"
 
** Life is too short to hold on to excess baggage, whether it's yours or is attached to someone else. Pull out those sharp shears and cut that shit loose!
 
** Life is too short to not enjoy yourself, so take that trip you've always dreamt of, pursue that job you've always wanted, pursue that guy you've always been too self conscious to pursue, start that hobby you've always imagined, etc, etc. Just live your life and let the haters rot away like the bitter old bags that they are.
 
** Nothing makes a hangover better than a good Bloody Mary.
 
** Don't hang on to people who don't want to stick around. Point them to the nearest exit and let their asses leave.
 
** A man with a huge dick who doesn't know how to properly use it as useless as a car with no wheels.
 
** Don't expect anyone else to make you happy. Get off your naive butt and go find that happiness yourself.
 
** Don't base your worth on what others think of you. It's YOUR life, not theirs!
 
** A smile and a good attitude can go a long way.
 
Happy New Year, keep on truckin', keep on fuckin'!  ;-)

A random thought about thong underwear.

I have lots of different types of underwear. Boxers, briefs, jockstraps... only 1 pair of thongs though. I hardly wear them. Not because I'm bothered by the sensation of the thin strap in my ass crack. It's more that the "pouch" doesn't seem big enough to hold my junk in. I'm not packing a great deal and yet I still seem to have issues holding my dick and balls in. Kinda makes me wonder how a guy with a big ole 10 inch dong and/or low hangers would be able to get it all to fit in a thong. And I wonder about guys who wear them regularly and how they must not be packing much.

Questions About My Phone (stolen from someone else's blog)

1. Do you still have a land line?
Yes I do. Not exactly sure why... perhaps in the event that power goes out and my cell is without juice, or something is blocking my cell signal, like aliens or the drone of some giant monster wreaking havoc outside.
 
2. Which cell phone do you use and why?
I have the Samsung Galaxy S4. I love Samsung's phones. Had the S2 and loved it, so I stuck with Samsung. I refuse to get an iPhone because certain people i've known who've had it were so obnoxious about how much they loved it it's given me a bad taste in my mouth.
 
3. Which provider do you use? Is there really a difference?
I use AT&T. I can't really answer this question as I have not had any other providers before. I've heard good and bad things about all the other providers out there.
 
4. If you call someone and they don't pick up, do you leave a message?
It depends on why i'm calling. If it's important then I will leave a message.
 
5. When you have a missed call (with no message), do you call the person back?
No unless I think it's important, but then again, if it were important, they would leave a message, no?
 
6. Do you text willingly or reluctantly? How are your skills?
Willingly. I prefer texting to making phone calls. I hate talking on the phone, it's not really my thing. I find that texting is a less intrusive way of communicating information to someone.
 
7. Has your cell phone replaced your camera?
Actually it has. My cell has become my camera, my calculator, my calorie counter, my e-mail messenger, my digital encyclopedia, my directions source, etc.
 
8. Selfies?
I'll let this photo answer that question...
 
9. How many apps do you have? Which is your favorite and why?
I haven't counted them but not too many. My favorite one is probably PicsArt, which is a photo studio that allows me to do all sorts of things with pictures. Such as....
 
10. What would life be like with no cell/smart phone for one month?
I think it would make my social life less active, but on the other hand it might make me focus with more detail on other things.
 
BONUS
 
How much has your cell phone become a part of your sex life? Sexting, hookup apps, selfies, video, GPS, more?
This is a timely question. Last night I logged onto one of those apps to say hi to a friend. A half hour later I got hit up by some young bear dude. Within a few hours he was over my place, giving me a very good rimjob. Haha! It's become an easy way to communicate with fuck buddies to see if they're available or vice versa. I can't tell you how many times i've gotten random texts, e-mails, messages, etc from someone that resulted in naked shenanigans.

Science Fiction Double Feature!

I got the opening song of Rocky Horror Picture Show playing through my head as I write these reviews of 2 sci-fi films I saw. Not really a double feature as I saw them both on different days, but anyway.....
 
ANTIVIRAL
 
THE GOOD:
A very original story by Brandon Cronenberg (son of David) that brings to mind the some of the twisted science fiction films of his father, such as Videodrome, The Brood and Existenz. It takes place in the near future, where society's fixation with celebrity has reached such ridiculous levels that sick stars sell their disease to companies, who go and inject high paying customers with said disease so that the fans can feel more connected to the celebrity they worship. The lead character works for one of these companies, and he's secretly selling some of the infections he draws from celebrities on the side to shady people for profit. The film includes such insane concepts as a butcher shop that grows cells of certain celebrities and makes steaks out of them, to sell to customers who want to eat the reproduced cell meat of their favorite star. Things go bad when one of the most popular celebrities becomes infected with a serious virus that the lead character has also acquired, and suddenly he's thrust into a conspiracy of trying to find out where this man-made virus came from so that he can save the star and himself. All the actors are quite good and the concept is sick enough to be fascinating.
 
THE BAD:
The only thing I could think of is that this movie might not be everyone's cup of tea. It's a very original film that shows the viewer something different and does it quite well.
 
OVERALL SCORE:
I'd give it an 8½. Like I said, a very original, different science fiction film that's intelligently written, well acted and filled with very sick ideas.
 
 
 
THE LAST DAYS ON MARS
 
THE GOOD:
A crew on a 6 month mission on Mars are ready to pack up and leave towards Earth, when one of the crew members discovers living bacteria that puts the crew in jeopardy. The film shows some striking cinematography of the surface of Mars, including dust storms. It's fast paced enough to not drag or bore.
 
THE BAD:
It doesn't feature anything that you haven't seen before. It's basically Alien with zombies. It even features the usual clich├ęd characters you'd see in films of this type: the bitchy scientist who only cares about the discovery, the coward who can't be trusted and you know will turn on everyone, the logical female who keeps everyone calm, and characters reacting with emotion over logic when you would think that trained astronauts would have enough mental control to use their heads first. The lead character, played by Liev Schreiber, also has flashbacks to some situation while they were in space that causes him PTSD, but the scenes showing what happened don't explain enough to make it seem that serious, and Schreiber doesn't have the emotional range to make his panic attacks seem riveting enough to make you care. And some of the action sequences are done with such fast cuts and choppy editing that the viewer doesn't get the full rush that they should deliver.
 
OVERALL SCORE:
About a 6. Decent but not remarkable.

The End Of The Year

Well it's almost the end of the year. It went by fast. Some things changed. Some things stayed the same. I stayed connected with most everyone I know except one person whom I stopped being friends with. No loss there, as he was turning into one of those annoying people that you find yourself wondering more and more "and i'm hanging out with this person because???" The older I get the less tolerance I have for self-centered, egotistical, pretentious, judgemental idiots who point out others mistakes as if their shit don't stink, so distance myself I did, and it worked.
 
 
I continued going to the gym and losing weight. People keep telling me i'm losing weight, that they've noticed. And I enjoy working out as well. Seeing the result myself is nice. I just pack my gym bag and go right after work, I find that method works best for me. The hot guys working out and in the locker room/shower are an added bonus. ;-)
 
 
I did a lot of fun things this year, attended a lot of fun events, including a few live shows. The best by far was The Presets. They put on a damn good show, full of energy.
 
 
Did a lot of dancing at clubs. One that plays mash-up DJ mixes (a mash-up is where a DJ will mix 2 or 3 songs to create a new song, and many times they'll mix artists from different genres to get something interesting). The same club, on another night, hosts a goth/industrial/synth pop night, and that was fun, dancing to a lot of the stuff I grew up listening to. And of course there were the underwear parties where I stripped down to a jockstrap and sweated it out with hot, half naked men (and then some). Even in my early 40's I find clubbing lots of fun.
 
 
I got to see a lot of naked public flesh at Pride, Dore Alley and Folsom Street Fair. I even serviced a few dudes at Dore Alley. After all, when in Rome... hehehe!
 
 
The japanese toy company Bandai allowed me to flex my geek muscle as it released a new series of 5" Ultraman monster figures. I've gotten quite a few (and currently am expecting 3 more from ebay). They also released the complete series of Ultraseven and Return Of Ultraman on DVD, which I got and am eagerly looking forward to the release of more.
 
 
I watched several new movies this last year. The one that really stood out, though, was the remake of the 80's slasher classic, Maniac. It was originally released in late 2012 I think, but I was able to watch it this year. Anyways, anyone who knows me knows that I usually hate remakes of horror movies. This one, however, is the rare exception that gets it right. It was fantastic, brutal, and the killer was played by Elijah Wood, who took on a different approach to the title character, portraying him more like a severely socially phobic nutcase who murders women due to mommy issues. This was the best horror film I saw all year. Simply awesome!
 
 
Not a bad year at all. The holidays were either lots of fun (Halloween) or uneventful (as I expect Christmas to be, though the pic below is what i'd love to see happen, hehe!).
 
 
So this year wasn't bad at all.

BRRR!

It's been pretty cold here in California. Not as cold as other regions of the US, but still chilly for this area. Winter is officially here. Despite the low 30's this morning, I still saw someone dressed like the above pic while getting coffee before work. Only in California. Hehe...

Connected?

 
Lately i've been hearing/reading people complain about how modern technology is causing humans to be disconnected from one another. Just last week I was on a train heading to SF and noticed 2 sets of people on the same train as me. One was an older man and his teenage daughter. She had her earphones plugged into her smartphone, and the entire time she was looking at her phone and not once saying a single word to her dad. Sitting on the opposite side was a woman and her teenage daughter, and again I saw the same thing: kid was so preoccupied with her device she was completely ignoring her mother.
 
 
Over the weekend I saw my family and one of my brothers complained to my dad about how no one socializes anymore because they're all busy on their smartphones. While I can agree with this to a certain degree, I found it amusing when he then went into raving to my dad about all the cool features that smart phones have, like directions and the ability to look up information within seconds.
 
 
It made me realize that this modern technology, like everything else in life, has it's ying and yang, it's good and bad. While it may keep people from socializing more, in some cases that's not a bad thing, as certain people are not worth socializing with and you find yourself thanking the powers that be for that smartphone that allows you to ignore them. And then I think about how some days i'll be somewhere, minding my own business, and I suddenly get a text or message or e-mail from someone, and next thing I know i'm out and about with this person/persons, doing something fun. That wouldn't happen as often without my smartphone.
 
 
I think i'm at the perfect age where I can appreciate the good things that this modern technology has, while not getting too caught up in it because I grew up without it and can recall life before it. And I do enjoy interacting and socializing with strangers... just not all of them.  ;-)
