A note on the coming evolution of "titty streamers" and Twitch whores

Do any of you guys watch streams of video games on Twitch? Well, I don't, but I have a guy named Birdman in my YouTube playlist. He has some pretty hilarious videos, like one in which he is hitting on an alleged milf on voice chat on Xbox or his run-in with the "cam girl community". His persona is a bit silly, but he has quite a knack for presenting rather mundane events in an entertaining manner. This goes back to the issue of dullness --- dull minds don't even grasp when something funny or interesting is happening right in front of them.

Anyway, through one of his videos I learnt about the Biggest Twitch Whore Ever. Take a few minutes of your time and watch that video. It is about "LegendaryLea". It's not quite clear whether she is acting or whether she is really that dumb (I'd bet money on the latter). Instead of playing games on Twitch, she shows off her legs, ass, tits, and even vagina. It's quite incredible. She puts on her webcam, shoves her vag into the screen and salivating idiots throw money at her. I don't really care about "LegendaryLea", don't get me wrong.

Clubs vs HD Porn

Alek Novy made the following remark on my recent post on the economic struggles of clubs:
I'd say that guys waking up to "pussy being overrated" & "porn is better than most chicks" are a huge factor too. It isn't just that girls dressed slutty to get male attention. But guys also went to clubs so they can see sluttily dressed girls as well. With HD porn that's no longer that special... not worth dressing up, waiting in line for, and paying a fee in order to see it. Remember, most club guys in the history of clubs never got a single lay. (...) Most guys went for the factor of "omg i get to see a slutty-dressed chick in real life". (...)
This makes perfect sense. To me, the only plausible reasons for going to clubs are 1) wanting to get laid and 2) enjoying to hang out in a particular scene. On the other hand, the average dude only dreams of 1), and 2) isn't really a factor for him because he has no particular taste. Instead, a club is a place to consume alcohol and ogle chicks.

Club Game is now available for Kindle

At long last, my book Club Game: The No-Nonsense Guide to Getting Girls in Clubs and Bars is now available as a Kindle ebook:

Clubs seem to be having a harder time

Prompted by a recent post on my forum on anecdotal evidence that clubs are disappearing, I did a bit of research on that topic, but before we get to that, I'd like to share some of my observations.

I have been aware that gentrification is a prime cause for club closures. Central London was hit pretty hard due to the redevelopment of Tottenham Court Road tube station, for instance. In addition, the authorities cracked down on clubs in Soho, leading to the closure of clubs that have been around for decades, such as Madame Jojo's. Their Tuesday night was one of my favorite nights out in London. When I was living in Berlin, I witnessed first-hand the effects of gentrification, forcing many clubs to either permanently close or move. The pattern was always more or less the same: renovations, redevelopments, new renters or owners of apartments close to clubs. Those uptight high-strung people moved to Berlin to experience some of its "cool". Yet, the moment they figure out that this means loud crowds in the neighborhood, they've had it, and file complaints with the authorities.

Are these men dull?

It is well-established that the mainstream media (MSM) have various questionable biases: they are left-leaning, so much that they topple over and end up with their head in the sand, they are misandrist, they detest logic and clear reasoning, and any kind of criticism is "hate", "racism" or "nazism". Today, we'll look at an example of misandry in the MSM. The Telegraph had a brief article on a book with the title "Dull Men of Great Britain" --- published in the men's section of that newspaper! Can you imagine a woman's magazine running a story like "The dumbest bitches in the world?". I thought so. That book itself is an affront, and the Telegraph story isn't any better. They picked the allegedly "23 dullest men in Great Britain", which includes whose achievements include:

- collecting over 300 vacuum cleaners
- building a WWI tank (!)
- traveling the country in order to photograph hedges
- collecting a myriad of handsaws
- collecting > 7,500 different beer cans in 40 years
- visiting all 2,548 railway stations in England, Scotland and Wales

Club Game for Kindle is almost done

I am happy to announce that the Kindle version of Club Game is almost ready for release. It's unfortunate that it took that long, but life had gotten in the way. I will make an announcement once Club Game for Kindle is available on Amazon.

"She is just young and healthy"

In the recent Open Thread, Lucretius Carus left a comment regarding Marisa Papen, a playboy model who wrote some drivel on why she isn't objectifying herself when she's taking her clothes off for the camera, or something like that. He wrote:
Just looked at this Brazilian (?) chick "Marisa Papen"'s Playboy pics. Honestly, I've banged hotter girls, both in real life and in high class brothels & escorts. There's nothing particularly noteworthy or intriguing about her at all. She's just young, healthy and one monthly local playmate more - that's all. And her "philosophical essay" is nothing but a joke. Not only is it a great example of twisted female logic, it also reeks of solipsism and of completely overestimating her overall importance.

The Open Thread: September 2016

After receiving an increasing number of comments that were only tangentially related to my blog posts, I began posting the (mostly) monthly 'Open Thread'. This has been working very well so far.

In short, if you think anything you're going to write is "off topic" to the current post, but still related to pickup, women, gender politics and other topics I discuss on this blog, then please leave a comment to the most recent Open Thread, such like this one. Just post below.

Thank you.

A joke about efficient markets, and a deep truth about life

I just came across a joke I first heard in an introductory economics lecture. Back then it didn't notice the depth of it, though. Here it is:
A professor and an investor are walking down the street when the investor sees a $20 bill and stoops down to pick it up. The professor says "Don’t bother. If it were really there, someone would have picked it up already."
(The joke is that markets are supposed to be efficient, so investors can't make any money as everything is "priced in" into any speculative asset already. The professor believes that markets are efficient because that's what his theories says. Meanwhile, investors make money.)

Now, the question to you to think about is: Do you recognize the problem with the thought process of the professor, and notice how this is evident in reality? For extra credit, think of all the bullshit you are surrounded with on a daily basis. I am not only talking about politics. Even in allegedly high-IQ jobs people throw around bullshit phrases like "best practices" in order to justify borderline moronic processes. It's as if every excuse is good enough as long as it lets them avoid using their brain. You think I'm too radical? Read up what has become of the companies that were featured in Peters' In Search of Excellence.

An Extreme Case of Female Attention Seeking

As I have become older, I began realizing that women do incredible things for male attention. Tattoos are an obvious example. Since all women put on make-up and dress nicely, a young attention-hungry woman needs to up her game, so she may get inked. Or she gets hair extensions, a new nose, a boob job, or collagen in her lips. All that is not difficult to grasp. However, I quite recently made a possibly startling realization about an encounter I had many years ago.

I was "hanging out" with a young and very attractive female student, and one fine day she told me that she makes some cash on the side as a webcam girl. The context was quite bizarre to begin with, because when I first undressed her, she asked me whether I recognized her. This sounded plain weird to me, but when you're about to get it on, you are not going to attempt entering a discussion that may only lead to you not getting laid. Talking too much in those situations is also bad because you may end up not wanting to fuck her anymore because she says some complete bullcrap that turns you off.
