PROMOTE! PROMOTE! PROMOTE!!!

Well it seems that that’s been my life for the last week and will be for the next week until the 6th. The days come closer and so must the plans come together. Still haven’t met with the owner about details but it’s a club and less has to be done on my side when you don’t have to rent out your own venue, get sound, lights, blah blah blah… We meet tonight so this is *I hope* will be a short post. So..once again check the details for the Oct. 6th Party Fluid Mosaic!!!! and sign up for the mailing list for future events!!!

Went to the dentist today… first time in over a year and a half. Scary huh? I just hadn’t had medical or dental insurance in over 2 years so I’m taking the time to get all the body parts back into working order. Mike(the Frenchman scamming on all the patients/nurses…yeah I saw you lookin down the nurse’s bib!) and Kim(the yapper…just shut up and scrape please!) drilled out two fillings and replaced them, cleaned my teeth with some Ultra Sonic Scaler shit and now I have to go back to get my gums scraped out. By no means is your kiddy dentist…especially when I got the co-pay bill. DAMN!

Just to lighten things up why don’t we play some Osama Games. I got a really good rifle game at work today too but I’ll have to post that tomorrow…

Wouldn’t We All Like to be Money Rounders Pulling…

So two things seem to come up more offer than most in my post work discussions. Money and Women. They both are evil, can corrupt even the strongest of men and in the world of today, the more of them you have, they really just bring more problems than solutions. Well the last one holds more true for women more than money…But alas I cannot take my damn hands off either of em. So I’ve come up with a few simple rules of wisdom, with the help of the Swingers, that can help you get both in life without too many headaches:

#1 There are No Rules in This Game. Believe it or not being genuine is much more refreshing and will get you a lot farther than bullshit.
#2 Team Play. Didn’t kindergarten teach you anything? Work together, and have fun. You’ll get more accomplished with better results. “Where’s my wingman?”
#3 Less is More. It’s not about what you say. It’s how you listen.
#4 Women Aren’t Dumb. The B side is: Money is not easy. Manipulation should be subtle and insults get you NO WHERE.
#5 Be Honest… with yourself and with your dealings. Get straight to the point. If you want the sale ask for it. Don’t be interested in the brand name when you both know you want to see the pants on the floor in your bedroom.
#6 If You Must Lie. Keep it simple and as close to the truth as possible. Lying is bad business but in some personal settings it’s needed to smoothes things over.
#7 Setting the tone. Be confident and comfortable with who and what you have. It’s attractive and presents superiority that most lack. Never apologize for anything. Focus on the benefits not the negatives.
#8 Timing is Everything. If you are pushy or early you look desperate. Be patient and casual. There’s nothing like a good entrance.
#9 Deer in the Headlights. Everyone wants a mystery. Keep it a challenge and drive the needs rather than the wants.
#10 The Law of the Jungle. The strongest will survive. The competition is fierce so always give yourself the edge. A sense of self-respect makes all the difference in the world.
#11 Never bring up old shit. Never bring up ex-boyfriends, partners, encounters or old (sour) news. It will never benefit you and you don’t need to know.
#12 Be a Bad Man. My boys and I call this Owning. Don’t hide the fact that you like sex. We aren’t 14 man. Own your sexuality and don’t apologize for it. On the money side: You want it right. Go after it!
#13 The Waiting Game. The deal goes sour without foreplay. The babies love that shit. No reason to pop off in the first round when you know it’s scheduled for 10. Again don’t be desperate and take your time boy!
#14 Grace Under Pressure. The golden rule is keep it simple. Don’t try to over explain who you are or how you’re feeling (what you are selling). In leaving a message, remind them of something shared, don’t expect them to remember you by voice and name alone.
#15 Skip the Birdseed. Sometimes it just happens. Close the deal then and there. Don’t try to over sell your position when it’s all working now.
#16 Trust Yourself. Play your game not someone else’s. Stick with what feels right. Even if you fail, you’ve learned something and use it to better yourself the next pull.

And because I’m focusing on Money and Women, well what better way to have both than with a trip to Las Vegas. Yup. I’ve booked the flight to the city of sin and next comes the love, but don’t expect me to drop money at the Chicken ranch. The next episode I’ll come with some related links…

HighSide!!

The command to have everyone jump to one side of the raft to avoid rapping the boat around a rock called a banana rap, and jumping in for a swim over some boulders. Went Whitewater Rafting last weekend. Yeah it’s Thursday WTF man… I’m a little slow at updates at this point, I know. Gotta say though that it was fun. The Kern river. I had only been on the Sacramento (north and south), America(both forks) and the Russian. This was probably one of the more consistent ones. With routes through Dead Man’s curve, Horseshoe, and Heri-Kari you’ve got to have a good time. Also had some Cliff jumping and rope swinging and it’s all good!!! Picks will be loaded in a few days when I get copies. *gotta get the digi* Plus we had a personal guide that worked with us. Thanks Mike! I might be up for the Kayaking next month but I want to head to HI.

On the market watch. It’s damn crazy these times. All I hear about these days are layoffs. I wonder what’s next, who’s next? No one is immune I guess. I guess the market’s on it’s own Highside…the wrong one. In fact though this will actually be a blessing in disguise for many people. I can’t imagine wanting to go back to corporate after this. My recommendation is to take off! Go live some where else! Move out of your bubble and find something new. There’s so much world out there, why stop at Silicon Valley?
