I’m packing for more adventure — I’ll be visiting London and Dublin this week and next — and in my rush I wanted to give you something to chew on while I’m gone. My timeliness in mentioning this woman’s blog post/rant/edict is about as good as BP’s timeliness in capping the oil spill, but better late than never. I ran across this […]

Musings from the mailbag

by GK on June 15, 2010 · 8 comments

Sometimes I look to you, my dear readers, for inspiration on blog topics. Especially when I’m swamped with work, my social life and the Celtics in the NBA Finals. (I really, really hope they win Game 6 on Tuesday so my life can return to normal and I’m no longer an anxious mess.) So with three of you […]

Keeping it real and imperfect

by GK on June 1, 2010 · 6 comments

Last month, I watched a tour documentary on the White Stripes called “Under Great White Northern Lights.” What stood out to me, other than some blistering live sets and the weird chemistry between Jack and Meg White, is the part where Jack elaborates on the band’s philosophy on imperfection, and on “constriction to force ourselves to create.” I thought it tied in […]

Male closet enhancement

The only thing I don’t like about being in a big city is the small living space. And the thing I hate most about a small space is having to make painful decisions on my wardrobe. I’ve made Goodwill and my friends a lot more fashionable from the donations I’ve made to squeeze all my clothes into a 3 1/2-foot-wide […]

Around the same time I read about the whiny San Francisco women represented in that SF Weekly article (and the whiny SF men and women on its comments page), I found a corresponding blog that’s gained some local popularity. The name says it all: Why There Are No Girls in San Francisco.  Whoever this Samuel Snodgrass is, […]

This is a topic I’ve been wanting to cover for months. For all of San Francisco’s sophistication — its cuisine, wine and culture — we seem to be resorting to some childish temper tantrums when it comes to one thing: hooking up. Or, rather, not hooking up. Both sexes are guilty of this, and I’ll […]

A letter for us guys, from Big Red

by GK on April 20, 2010 · 4 comments

I found the Esquire article below on my friend’s entertainment blog, and as I recently shared dating advice from one woman on this blog, why not another? Especially when she’s the sexiest, curviest redhead in this galaxy, and she appears in my favorite TV show. And I named my guitar after her.  Christina Hendricks, better known as Joan Holloway of “Mad Men,” […]

Be yourself, and she’ll follow

Another week, another guest blogger here at Club GK. And unlike Augusta National Golf Club and the Catholic priesthood, we do accept women.   Actually, the writer I’ve invited would probably prefer to be called a girl — that’s one thing I like about her. Her name’s Vivian, and she runs a wit-laden dating blog called Bread and Boys. Two of my favorite […]
