Morning Mail - 4.18.11

Belle: The biggest growing market in escorting is something called "The Girlfriend Experience." Now that doesn't mean getting paid to be moody and forcing...

Minor housekeeping note. I need to not use my work computer for anything but work. So during the weekdays now, my internet access will be limited. Not really limited but let’s put it this way, “Crappy wireless.” Therefore, if you hit me up, and I don’t respond for a while, charge it to the game.

I’ve started to realize that people have a tendency to pull you back. I came to this observation because of my recent distaste of talking on the phone because of how horribly inefficient it is. Just to be honest and forthright with people the question I get all the time is…

How do you find time to write all these blogs?

Correction, blogs, magazine articles, eBook and an actual print book.

The answer is because I’m always writing. I’m at Bobby Fisher level too. I write two or three posts at a time sometimes. This is partially to avoid writer’s block, but also because it’s just damn hard to get all those article out the door in time. So right now, I can tell you I have three posts in the window next to this one; Comparing Women to Celebrities, Phat vs. Fat, and Are you the exception or the rule?

That brings me back to my original problem. People who say, “You are the busiest man in the world” or people who say, “Why you always rushing me off the phone?” I just simply cannot waste time. I’m either here or there maintaining on my friendships, I’m at work, or I’m writing. And until further notice, that’s what I like to do. People ask me, “What else other than writing is going on in your life?” NOTHING. People who want book deals don’t have other shit to do. It won’t work. I started late and I need to work at what I want to transition my career into. But what happens is you have a list of people who will then tell you, “You need to make some time for…” And usually these are people who want to bring you back to where you’ve always been.

You know I feel bad for Knick fans because they are the quickest to ever remember to take their time. You give them an inch and they want a mile. I do not expect the Knicks to win one game against the defending Eastern Conference champions. Not one! No shots at them, but the goal this year was to get to the playoffs. That’s it, that’s fine. If you want to get jazzy, they can attempt to win a playoff game. But honestly the Knicks could lose and their season has been a success. It’s teams like the Heat who have to prove they can win a series in the playoffs, but even still if they lost, there’s always next year to grow. Rome wasn’t built in a day.

If you’re the Knicks and Carmelo down 2 on the road, you shoot the 3. That’s just the rules of the game.

If any of you like to check out what I’m watching on TV, right now Secret Diary of a Call Girl is back for Season 4 on Showtime. I’m a Showtime type of person, I like the writing better than HBO, no shots, I have close friends who write and produce HBO series, but that’s just my personal opinion. I hope you guys enjoyed Shameless as much as I did. I thought it was a great show and I’m excited for it to come back next season.

I like shows on both channels. Dexter and Nurse Jackie on Showtime. Boardwalk Empire and True Blood on HBO. It doesn't have to be either or if you can convince your cable company to give you them both for free.

To get ahead you always have to stay one step ahead of the next guy. Don't stop for anything. Do what needs to be done to get to the top.. everyone will understand once you get there.. and if they don't.. OH WELL..

As far as the Knicks go.. well some people are never satisfied.. They got Carmelo, ok that's great. THey've come back from having a really bad start.. another great thing, but wanting to win the championship because of the accrual of Carmelo.. Oh no.. not gonna happen. Maybe next year.. but its good that you're thinking so positively.. *no shots*

I can't get into HBO shows. They have great production but the writing just is subpar. I do like Hung, but I may be the only person who does since everyone complains about it being squished between True Blood and Entourage.
