Alarming News: I like Morgan Freeberg. A lot.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: We were following a trackback and thinking "hmmm... this is a bloody excellent post!", and then we realized that it was just part III of, well, three...Damn. I wish I'd written those.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: ...I just remembered that I found a new blog a short while ago, House of Eratosthenes, that I really like. I like his common sense approach and his curiosity when it comes to why people believe what they believe rather than just what they believe.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is an intriguing guy...[he] asks great questions and answers others with style, flair, reason and wit. On the blogroll he goes. Make him a part of your regular blogospheric reading. I certainly will.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is brilliant.
Common Sense Junction: Misha @ Anti-Idiotarian never ceases to amaze me. He keeps finding other good blogs. I went over to A.I. this morning for my daily Misha fix and he had found this guy named Morgan Freeberg in Fair Oaks, California, that has a blog, House of Eratosthenes. Freeberg says its "The Blog That Nobody Reads" but it may now become the blog that everybody reads.
Jaded Haven: Good God, Morgan, you cover a topic from front to back with a screwy thoroughness I find mind boggling. I'm in awe of your thought proccesses, my friend, you're an exceptional talent. You start by throwing in the kitchen sink, tie in someone's syphilitic uncle, bend around a rip tide of brilliance and bring it all home in a neat, diamond dripping package of an exceptionally readable moment of damn fine wordsmithing. I love reading you.
Mein Blogovault: Make "the Blog that No One Reads" one of your daily reads.
Philmon: When Morgan meanders, stick with him - he's got a point and it'll be worth it in the end. He's not a hit-and-run snarky quip kind of guy. The pieces all fall into place like tumblers in a lock and bang! He's opened a cognative door for you.
Rightlinx: Morgan at House of Eratosthenes is one of the best writers out there. I read him nearly every day because he manages to provide an interesting perspective, even though I don't always agree.
Poetic Justice: Cletus! Ah gots a laiv one fer yew...
With one fell swoop. You know the ones — “101 Tips and Tricks to Keep Him Happy in Bed! Tonight!”
Reality is much, much simpler, especially if the ladies approach those they’re trying to please, and…y’know…ask us.
[F]or most guys, I am guessing that the women they remember the most — the ones that stick in their minds, the ones they never quite get over — are the ones that were the most aggressive and accessible sexually. Want to make an impression on a guy that will last forever? It doesn’t have anything to do with haircuts or fashionable purses.
Men are simple creatures. Protoplasms. It is a strange irony that a woman can pretty much get whatever she wants from a guy with no arguments and no disagreements —- nothing but “Absolutely, dear” and “Whatever you want, honey” — by doing just one thing (but doing it two or three or sometimes four times a week).
Either women don’t quite get this, or are, you know, just too complicated to act upon it.
It’s baffling that women’s magazines even exist. All those wasted pages on “How to Keep Your Man.” Any article on this topic that contains more than three words (“Screw him lots”) is missing the big picture and dwelling on trivialities.
I think CUS gets the top prize for contributions to the comment section…
I have remarked to my wife at the grocery store checkout counter that I could write every single article in Cosmo headlined ‘How to Keep you Man’, ‘How to Wow your Man in Bed’, ‘How to Keep your Man Satisfied’ etc. etc. etc.:
Give him a blow job.
And yes, it is just that simple.
Anthony, on the other hand, does a great job of capturing exactly what Dr. Helen was talking about, by typifying the status quo: Men as beasts of burden. You keep them on the “right” path, by bruising their sensitive, tender egos anytime they wander astray:
This is the saddest thing I’ve ever read by a man. The reason you are dissatisfied and perplexed by women is not that women are confused.
It’s that you are such a sorry excuse for a man.
Anthony, if you are a woman — which I believe you are — you’re ordering up more quantities of what has already frustrated you. No one’s ever pronounced a desire for a preening, pliable sycophant of a man, and there’s a reason for that. Because nobody wants one. But if you really are a fella, your position is even more absurd because you’re placing orders on what the other sex wants by proxy. Placing an order for what has never made women happy. In all of human history. Not once.
Ace is right. Quit reading heavy, expensive, petroleum-product glossy mags (which contribute to global warming, anyway) about how to do stuff, and just jump in and start doin’.
You realize how aggravated the ladies would be if men behaved this way? It would be like, dishes stacking in the sink higher and higher, night after night, while we sit around and read glossy magazines with “101 ways to get those dishes done” on the cover.
Update: Forgot to deliver a primer for those who aren’t “into blogs” and may not know what’s going on.
Glenn Reynolds does Instapundit, and Dr. Helen is his wife. That’s why everyone’s being all cutesy.
There, now you know what you need to know. Except about what’s up with Anthony. That I don’t know. I’ve got a couple of ideas, and I’m not that curious about ’em.
