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 […]

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 […]

Greg’s go music

by GK on May 20, 2010 · 1 comment

I’m a creature of routine before a night out with my friends. Pushups and dumbbell curls, check. Shower, check. Big dinner — with no garlic — while watching “Flight of the Conchords,” check.

The Club Survival Guide, Part I

by GK on August 5, 2009 · 1 comment

In defense of dance clubs

by GK on July 28, 2009 · 4 comments

Some might find it ironic that although I’ve earned my greatest success as a Charisma Arts instructor from teaching guys how to connect with women during the day, I’ve had much of my personal success this year on the sugar-stained floors of dance venues. That’s right, easy-going Greg does have a party side. Although I’d met women at clubs in the […]

On being a student again

by GK on June 26, 2009 · 2 comments

Yes, folks, the Mighty GK has turned another year older today. I’m not going to reveal my age so overtly here, but if you look up the number Larry Bird wore, that’ll tell you. I bought myself a little birthday present last week, and I intend to make it a big part of my life. It’s […]

A song for summer flirting

by GK on June 15, 2009 · 1 comment

The Monday after a bootcamp, especially one after I’ve traveled as I did this past weekend, is a day of rest for me — a chance for my feet and voice to heal and to get my mind off attractive women for just a few hours. So today, as I often do, I’m relaxing over some music, and […]
