Going To The Movie Theater By Yourself

Roll Sound

A few days ago, at the age of 31, I went alone to a movie theater for the first time in my life. I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

 Growing up I always thought it was weird to go to a movie by yourself. I would think, “Doesn’t that person have someone to go with?”

I suppose that was a little naive of me. Back in the day I always went to the movies with my friends. We had a ritual. We would fill our backpacks with snacks, pop, beer, etc. We would sneak 3 or 4 people in. How did we do that?

2 people go in with 2 tickets and get them ripped. 1 person goes out to the waiting area with the 2 ticket stubs. Then the 1 guy brings 1 new guy back in with him with the ticket stubs. Repeat that a few times, a free movie for our buddies.

Lights, Camera, Action

There I was sitting on the right side that had only 2 seats in the row, up a bit, not too far from the door aka my new favourite spot to sit.

The theater started to fill up. I thought I’d be nice and moved my shirt and backpack off of the seat beside me. Just in case someone needed to sit there.

The seating was getting few and far between. You could see couples, young and old, standing by the front searching for seats together.

An older lady and her hubby sauntered up the stairs looking out into the sea of people for 2 perfect spots beside each other. No luck.

The next best thing was to have her sit beside me and her hubby 2 seats down in front of her. #MovieNight ruined!

But, as luck would have it, the guy that her hubby was going to sit beside, wait for it… was by himself as well! That guy was nice, he gave up his seat so that the older couple could sit beside each other.

And wouldn’t you know it, he came and sat beside me! 2 guys went to a movie alone and ended up sitting beside each other. That’s funny to me.

Fin

All in all it was a good movie and a fun time. I enjoy movies like that. I call them, “popcorn flicks”, mindless films with little re-watch-ability but flashy and fun for an hour and a bit. Going to a movie alone is something I will definitely be doing again in the near future.

How about you, have you ever gone to the movies by yourself?

PS smoking a bit of pot before the movie can certainly make it even better (smoke responsibly).

College Again

Three semesters down. One more to go.

Has it really been almost a year and a half since I started this quest of going back to school?

Damn. Time flies when you’re studying and drinking.

Only this time around, I’m a bit older and a bit wiser, so I’m not drinking AS MUCH as I did when I first went to college about seven years ago. I had way too much fun back then. That’s actually one of the reasons why I went back.

Other then the student debt, I’m glad I went back. The field of study I’m in has a high hiring rate after graduation, one of the highest in the school.

There is also a lot of opportunities for self-employment in this field as well. Something I’m considering doing once I graduate, to help pay the loan bills.

I have to admit, it feels sort of strange to have, dare is say a, “Vision” of what I want to do after graduation. I usually just kind of go with the flow and see what happens. But having an idea of what I want to do in nine months is another good change.

Pass or Fail

So, how exactly did I do? What where my grades like? How about I show you:

grades.jpg

Not bad, eh? Considering I never got any certificates or diplomas from college all those years ago. I barely went to class. And when I did, I was usually a few beers deep or stoned out of my mind, or both.

Oh well, you live and learn. And this year I certainly learned, a lot.

Here’s to the beginning of a fun and productive summer!

The Nervous Braindown Podcast – Episode 4 – Should We Be Worried About Artificial Intelligence

After almost a year long hiatus, The Nervous Braindown Podcast is back!

The buzz on my Twitter feed is all about podcasts. I couldn’t help but get the itch to record another episode. It was fun. Between the technical difficulties and the cursing I was finally able to put together this episode in a few days.

The length of the original cut was just over 20 minutes. The first 6 and a half minutes I did a bit of a “catch up” – shared a bit about me and what I’ve been up to. HOWEVER, I decided to cut that part out. Mostly for the sake of length (nobody is going to listen for 20 minutes).

I think you’ll enjoy the final cut.

Episode 4 – Should We Be Worried About Artificial Intelligence?

I talk about:

  • Types of Artificial Intelligence
  • Who thinks we should be worried?
  • How long do we have?
  • (Length: 13mins12sec)

Have a listen and let me know what you think!

5 Online Dating Tips For Women By Nina Agdal

There I was making a delicious Simple Single Man Meal™ when I then hear a notification on my phone go off. The sound indicates a potential hook-up from Tinder.

Wonderful, another woman has fallen victim of my mass-swiping technique. Let’s check this broad out:

dcllive nina and me.jpg

Wow! It’s none other then 24 year old world famous Danish super model, and future mother of my many children, Nina Agdal.

Could this be true? Could this be real?

Absolutely not. Just another ad. Let’s see what she’s selling:

IMG_20170227_153624.png

Nice copywriting, Nina.

Best dating tips you say, well let’s check them out and see how good they are.

5 Online Dating Tips For Women By Nina Agdal

Tip #1: Wear a bright color in your profile pic to stand out.

640x640_0c66acd4-ea2e-4eee-87c2-114f5c2c695f.jpg

Nina, I must say, that mustard shirt really brings out your tits eyes. Good on ya.

Peacocks (the male peafowl) are usually the ones showing their feathers to court peahens (the female peafowl). But don’t let that fowl patriarchy hold you down!

Show some color!

Tip #2: Smile! Not smiling in your profile pic reduces your chances for a right swipe.

640x640_719e993e-aa71-411f-b459-b0102f1354a7.jpg

Nina, I couldn’t agree with you more. About %50 of the women I see on Tinder aren’t smiling. What gives?

Are these women that don’t smile trying look rough and tough? Do these women think we like that? Do some guys like that? I’ve never heard a dude say, “Omg D, her grimace is such a turn on! Her wry amusement makes me feel kind of funny in the pants.”

Also, good call Nina, that mustard shirt looks better around your waist. You should show more skin.

Tip #3: Include a bio in you profile to help start the converstations.

640x640_77ba15ce-54c4-4f65-8064-e1c1173118de.jpg

It’s amazing how little info we guys have to work with when it comes to online dating profiles. Ladies, if you just have pictures of you and your friends, and no bio, it’s kind of hard to start the conversation. And we all know you gals aren’t the ones usually making the first move.

A link to your Instagram or Snapchat account doesn’t count. All that tells me is that you’re just a social media horder.

But, then again, that could be your way of filtering out the losers. The guys that add you to all that shit are probably pussies. In that case, very clever ladies, very clever.

But seriously, put something of substance in your profile bio.

Tip #4: 60% of singles prefer an evening date.

640x640_bd1e003d-834a-4a4c-9f3b-50642d423105.jpg

Why do you think that is Nina? I’d like to think it’s because singles have shit to do in the day time – like work or school – like I do. But I think it’s because another reason: so they can drink they’re faces off.

There’s something about the night time that brings out peoples darker sides and an excuse to lower inhibitions, especally when drinking.

A caveat to that: summer is coming so patio drinking is upon us. I bet that 60% may drop closer to half in the coming months.

Tip #5: Most singles prefer the clean shaven look for guys.

640x640_6f8e7095-3d3b-417e-82b5-08f0f1aa0436.jpg

Nina, I’m not sure I totally agree with you on this one. I’ve had women compliment my manly mane and also my clean shaven countenance.

Which brings me to believe women don’t know what they want. But Nina, you already knew that.


Let’s recap:

5 Online Dating Tips For Women By Nina Agdal
  1. Wear bright colors in your profile pic, because evolution says so
  2. Smile, because nobody likes a Debbie Downer
  3. Include a bio in your profile, becuase we can’t read you goddamn mind, give us something to work with
  4. Suggest a date at night, because people usually have their nights open to getting down and drity
  5. Shave your face, because no woman likes a nu-male faux-beard

Nina, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to help fellow gals out with the roller coaster ride that is the currect dating market. You’re doing us a great service.

And now, why we all clicked the link to read this post, some pictures of Nina:

Crowd Erupts With “BLUE LIVES MATTER!” Chant At Shia Labeouf Live Stream Link #HWNDU

(This is Part IX of The D Live Culture Series)


Earlier today, published author, New York City Playboy™, Photographer of Pretty Ladies™, and proprietor of goldmundunleashed.com – Goldmund – has shared with us his experience at Shia Labeouf’s LIVE trolling station…I mean art project.

The vibe at the scene of the exhibit is one of fun, uncertainty, and tension. There were people chanting the annoying popular phrase, “He Will Not Divide Us!”, playing tambourines and other hippy instraments. And of course there were real life shitposters and trolls, as seen from their MAGA hats.

Wait! Was that Pax Dickinson from Twitter fame and the www.silencedmovie.com? It sure was.

dcllive HWNDU.jpg
“Who is he? I don’t know who he is.”

For the most part people were just shouting, chanting, and talking shit. Luckily it didn’t escalate. Cops were at the scene.

From his latest video on his periscope account we can see two people, one presumably a Trump supporter, the other a noticabely butthurt individual.

Two guys started chirping each other. Then a police man came over. This lead to the crowd erupting in a new chant of, “BLUE LIVES MATTER! BLUE LIVES MATTER!” A dig at the now defunct #BlackLivesMatter movement. That movement seemed to sort of disappear over night, strange eh?

Watch the crowd chant here:


I think Shia’s idea was stupid. To have people come up to a live stream and virtue signal to the masses. But what Shia doesn’t realise is that his passion for post-modern garbage has now created a new platform – giving people a free IRL Trolling Service.

It’s like a real life Twitter trolling thread came to life!

How much do you want to bet that this, “Exhibit” of his gets taken over by Trump supporters and is taken down within the first year…

…I sure hope so.


UPDATE: HAHA told you so!

Shia says good-bye-a to his precious, “art project”. FAIL!

Swipe Right: Fun for the Whole Family

This is Part VIII of The D Live Culture Series


Tinder is now available on Apple TV. Why you might ask? I thought the same thing.

I’m still trying to figure that one out. In the mean time, lets have some fun with these silly people.

dcllive tinder 2.jpg
(screenshot taken from my mobile)

Invite friends and family

Yes, because my friends and family don’t have anything to do with their time other then sit around while I ogle over woman I’ll never fuck.

put out the chips and dip

That’s actually a good idea. You have to remember to be a good host while sharing your Tinder experience with your loved ones. They need to keep their energy up while you arrange dates with single moms that ride horses and have a giant German Sheppard and their grandpa in their profile pic.

How else are you supposed to know she’s adventurous, is an animal lover, and loves her Papa? Ya, I couldn’t think of another way either.

We’ve combined all the joys of swiping with all the comforts of your home

Wrong! You missed one: swiping on the shitter. There’s nothing more joyous than dropping a huge deuce while reading yet another profile that says, “Not looking for hookups, I’m so over that!”

Hey, she seems like a keeper! (*plop*)

Next, here are some promotional ads that Tinder and Apple put together. And let me tell you, they sure are revealing.

 She’s Not Good Enough for My Boy!

Hey Ma! Get the hell outta here so I can find a chubby 6 and get a handjob, on your couch, cuz I’m unemployed!

Now in the comfort of your own home (or your parents) you can find, “The One” on a TV, in all its 70inch HD-4K-3D glory.

Alpha Cock

Shut up Dad! Don’t you slut shame me!

Now you and your bff can look for bad boys to, “just take you” on that gross 1970s couch.

He’ll probably never call you again.

(PS – I’d be careful on that couch, your brother was using it the other day, eww.)

Boomin’ Granny

Um Mom, I could really use a Dad, you know, since I wasn’t raised with a father figu…..okay I’ll shut up.

Even boomin’ granny can find herself some weathered Alpha cock.


There are a bunch of these videos. Check the rest of them out here.

As long as stuff like this keeps becoming the norm, I will have lots of things to write about for The D Live Culture Series. Keep ‘em coming!
