On this episode I discuss my 6 month experiences with sex workers.   I also chat about my biggest takeaways from Simon Sinek's book 'Start with Why'.   3 new weird stories are covered.    A new mixtape sandwich in between.   Finally a few quick reviews of TV shows/movies I've recently watched.

Simon Sinek's 'Start With Why' book.   My Biggest Takeaways.

I found Simon Sinek watching Evan Carmicheal's 'Believe' YouTube channel. I was fascinated by Mr. Sinek's book title, 'Start With Why.' The question 'why do we do what we do' fascinates me.
If you don't already know, self-help books are my jam. This was more of a business book and a slog to get through at times. Also, Mr. Sinek goes on and on about Apple, Steve Jobs, and their products.

Nonetheless, there were some great quotes I pulled from the book. Here are five that spoke to me.

-'The example starts to prove that people don't buy WHAT you do, they buy WHY you do it.' pg 41

-'This is one of the primary reasons why teachers tell students to go with their first instinct when taking a multiple-choice test, to trust their gut. The more time spent thinking about the answer, the bigger the risk that it may be the wrong one. Our limbic brains are smart and often know the right thing to do.'pg 58

-'Great companies don't hire skilled people and motivate them, they hire already motivated people and inspire them.' pg 94

-'Most people in the world are HOW-types. Most people are quite functional in the real world and can do their jobs very well. Some may be very successful and even make millions of dollars, they will never build billion-dollar businesses or change the world. HOW-types don't need WHY-types to do well. But WHY-guys, for all their vision and imagination, often get the short end of the stick. Without someone inspired by their vision and the knowledge to make it a reality, most WHY-types end up as starving visionaries, people with all the answers but never accomplishing much themselves.' pg 141

-'The reason so many small businesses fail, however, is because passion alone can't cut it. For passion to survive, it needs structure. A WHY without the HOW's, passion without structure, has a very high probability of failure.' pg 184

MIXTAPE PREVIEW



Quick Reviews of Recent TV Show/Movies I've Watched

Netflix Lost In Space (2018)...Very enjoyable, easy to get through, engaging. Bring on season 2.

Netflix The Rain...Was ok. I'm not looking forward to another season. This dragged for me.

Upgrade (Movie). Wow. I dug this film. Robocop, Terminator vibes. Violent too. This came straight out of the 80s with a futuristic twist. Loved this.

Sense 8...I've watched this from the beginning. I'm a fan of the Wachowski's stuff. I enjoyed there their Matrix films, Cloud Atlas, Jupiter Ascending. I enjoyed this show, but it's not perfect. It lingers on certain situations for a while, and others it wraps up immediately after a long build. The romances and chemistry between the 8 main characters is the highlight of this series for me. Causing me to tear up several times throughout. The action was cool as well. As a whole, this fun.

Black Lightning...For a CW show to include topics such as experimentation on poor, urban neighborhoods. Drugs, gang violence. A strong sense of family within the nuclear unit. Black Lightning was fantastic. This was miles ahead of Netflix's season 1 of Luke Cage. Jason Inman of the Geek History Lesson podcast hailed this show for being the best CW-superhero show of 2018.

My 6 Month Sex Worker Experience

I've been seeing sex workers for the last 6 months. I've had good and bad experiences. The people I've seen have all been in New Jersey. They've been transgender women and some cross-dressers. I've never considered myself bisexual, maybe I am now. Who knows.

I'm reminded of the good experiences while going through bad ones. Normally they happen when the sex worker lives alone or is alone at their place. When they take their time, give a massage, get to know you a bit. I'm often nervous when first meeting a lady of the night. These elements help ease that tension. If the sex is great, this makes the whole encounter an A+.

Bad experiences consist of someone saying they'll do something during the initial contact, then when you get there they no longer do it or want to upsell you to the 'girlfriend experience'. A bad experience happens when the escort looks nothing like their pictures in their online profile. When she says she has no remaining condoms or lube. A bad experience happens when she says she lives alone but someone pops out of the closet while you're having foreplay. Yes, all of this has happened to me during my sexcapades. But I don't regret any of it.

I prefer when the sex workers have their own place. I work in a hotel, at the front desk. I've seen clients walking in asking for the working women. It's awkward, weird. The escorts never give their real names so the client is in the lobby loitering waiting to hear from the worker. I know, I've done this! In New Jersey, there seems to be less hotel security as opposed to NYC hotels. Less awkward in Jersey? Maybe.

It has been a financial drain. Most sex workers charge $200 for an hour. This doesn't include the uber ride to/from the destination. If they're local that's even better. When I went for a two year period of being celibate I had more money in the bank. Like I said before, no regrets.

When I abstain from watching porn and save my ejaculation for the sex worker(about a 6 day period), I don't have trouble getting it up. If it's the other way around I have a hard time getting going, or if the sex worker is a little more masculine or rigid with rules, I don't tend to get excited.
For the most part, my experience has been positive. No life changing STD's, some bumps in the road here and there. I can be more consistent with fully protecting myself. I will do better.

My Biggest Takeaways-Ryan Holiday's 'Ego is the Enemy'

..Thanks for watching/listening!

The first time I heard of Ryan Holiday was on James Altucher's podcast. I thought, 'this guy sounds smart.' There was a time I was really into the long form interviews from the likes of Tim Ferris, Lewis Howes, and the aforementioned Mr. Altucher. These days I find these hour plus interviews too long. I prefer shorter conversations. Unless it's an author/person, I already know.

That interview sold me on this book(as many other interviews with authors have). This was a quick read as I was engaged with the content. I'm currently listening to the audiobook version during my daily shower. Ego and pride have cost me time, money, and relationships. It still plagues me today. But after going through this book, I'm noticing the moments when it gets the best of me.

The examples Mr. Holiday gives in this book regarding the colossal failures ego has produced throughout history, showed me how debilitating pride can be. In the book, he talks about how he's tattooed the title of the book on his arm. Reading this book made me do the same.

These are five of many takeaways from Ryan Holiday's 'Ego is the Enemy.'

-'His other famous piece of advice, 'Keep your identity small,'fits well here. Make it about the work and the principles behind it-not about a glorious vision that makes a good headline.' pg 112

-'So; Do we sit down, alone, and struggle with our work? Work that may or may not go anywhere that may be discouraging or painful? Do we love work, making a living to do work, not the other way around? Do we love practice, the way great athletes do? Or do we chase short-term attention and validation-whether that's indulging in the endless search for ideas or simply the distraction of talk and chatter? pg 82

-They're not alone. Too often, artists who think it was 'inspiration' or 'pain' that fueled their art and create an image around that-instead of hard work and sincere hustle-will eventually find themselves at the bottom of a bottle or on the wrong end of a needle.' pg 113

-'When you are starting out, we can be sure of a few fundamental realities: 1) You're not nearly as good or as important as you think you are; 2)You have an attitude that needs to be readjusted;pg 53

-'Meanwhile, love is right there. Egoless, open, positive, vulnerable, peaceful, and productive.' pg 207

Avengers: Infinity War REVIEW spoilers!

My anticipation for this film was high. Characters from separate movies interacting with each other for the first time was exciting. I've read some of the Infinity Gauntlet story(published in 1991). I knew going in, the power Thanos wields with the Gauntlet is immense. This film follows a combination of this narrative and the Infinity storyline(published in 2013). There is a YouTube channel called 'Comics Explained.' This youtber has video re-caps of both of these stories. I will link to them in the description/show notes for this episode.

This film had many 'WOW' moments. The discerning fan of the MCU will have questions. Where was Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Valkyrie? Where did the Black Order come from? What was the motivation behind Thanos army? Who or what was Thanos army? Here are other random observations(in no particular order). There are spoilers.

- Great pace. The movie starts off running.

-If they bring everyone back(who passed away in this film)in Avengers 4, it lessens the impact of this movie as a whole.

-Thor's Stormbreaker hammer was incredibly cool. He was the MVP here. I feel he is one of the most fleshed out and likable characters in this franchise.

-Red Skull; it could've been anyone villain who's passed on in a previous film. Not that impactful.

-Higher body count than Last Jedi? Yes.

- This was Thanos film. Josh Brolin humanizes this character. The actor's motion capture performance was phenomenal. He has excellent entrances in certain scenes. Specifically in Titan and Earth.

-Seeing Nick Fury in the end credits scene with a link to Captain Marvel was great! He uses a souped-up beeper to contact Carol Danvers. Is she similar to Star-Lord? Has she been displaced from Earth for some time, and isn't aware of current events?

-The balance of levity and darkness was well done. Thanks to comedic beats from the Guardians, Iron Man, and Thor. The clashing of egos between Stark and Strange made me smile.

-During some of the space sequences, I got a Star Wars vibe. Can the Russos' do something in that sandbox?

-Peter Dinklage's dwarf character looked like a Jack Kirby drawing. Nice.

-Does the gauntlet still work after the deadly finger snap? It looks badly damaged.

--Avengers 4 speculation: will Adam Warlock show up?   Is he being saved for Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3?

I've seen this movie twice to date, and I know I will revisit it in the future. What a thrill ride! Love what the MCU is doing connecting all these films. Other movie studios have attempted this, not successfully, not like this.
