In Memory of Dirk

by GK on January 19, 2011 · 9 comments

 This post won’t be as long as I originally expected. I’d rather avoid a lot of the “seize the day” cliches that come from an untimely death, and I’ll just stick to my personal thoughts about Dirk Manley. It is neither desirable nor intentional that I already had to give a eulogy to a departed friend […]

GK’s Book Pick: Seduce with Style

by GK on January 13, 2011 · 1 comment

I was vacationing with Oprah in Australia last month. Well, not really, but we were both in the same beach town at the same time, and her helicopter flew above me while I was snorkling in the Great Barrier Reef.  So it’s only fitting that I play Oprah and make a little book recommendation for […]

by GK on October 20, 2010 · 3 comments

Before I start kvetching over the season finale of “Mad Men,” I just wanted to follow up my wedding post by saying I had a truly memorable time watching Rob get married last weekend. I’ll never forget golfing with the guys on Wedding Eve, fist-pumping with Eastside Mike in the car after the wedding, and tearing up the dance floor […]

A wedding shouldn’t be a funeral

by GK on October 13, 2010 · 4 comments

I’m hearing wedding bells — not for me, of course. In a few hours I’ll be flying to Michigan to attend the wedding of one Rob Overman, while reuniting with a few other ex-Charisma Arts Superfriends. I’m not sure what kind of high jinks will ensue, and which girl will be my dance partner, but I can’t wait to […]

GK’s Pregame Playlist

by GK on October 1, 2010

It’s been a tough year for party music — if you’re looking for something other than Lady Gaga, at least — but I wanted to pass along some new songs that might suit your pregaming needs: Chromeo — I’m Not Contagious: Their entire new album, Business Casual, is full of sweet electronic dance songs, but this one […]

Don Draper: Owning the Dating Pool

by GK on September 14, 2010 · 3 comments

If life does originate from the water, Don Draper is showing us one can be reborn in it as well. Don does a lot of swimming in “The Summer Man,”  the latest episode of “Mad Men,” and while I’m not ready to call it a comeback just yet — he’d hit a new low last episode — he is […]

Now that I’ve felt the ghosts of kings and queens at Westminster Abbey, pondered life’s mysteries at Stonehenge and gazed down from the gorgeous cliffs of the Irish coast, I can get back to writing about what is truly meaningful: hot chicks and stuff. I want to address a topic that arose during my vacation, in the comments section of my previous post about […]
