The Failure of Don Draper

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 […]

Thank You, Nerds

by GK on September 29, 2010 · 2 comments

Lately I’ve felt as if my waning days as a social coach are flashing before my eyes — one girl I’m dating turns out to be close friends with a guy I once coached, then I perform at a gong-show karaoke contest to find out one of the judges interviewed me for the Eye on the Bay TV piece this year (I […]

Look Out, Nerds: Here I Come

by GK on September 20, 2010 · 3 comments

I’m going to do something a little nerve-racking this Thursday night: give a speech to a mainstream San Francisco audience on the pickup community. Will I have tomatoes, or even worse, Mystery hats thrown at me? One thing I do know: it will be fun. My presentation will be for Nerd Nite, a monthly bar series put on by my buddy Bart […]

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 […]

The smart way to pick up a bartender

by GK on September 2, 2010 · 1 comment

I’ve never been into the whole hired-gun game. Nothing against the sexy bartenders/waitresses/Comic Con models of the world, but I haven’t felt the urge to pursue any of them. Especially if they work every night (those nights should be reserved for GK!). But I have been witness to a fun demonstration on how to do it, and I thought […]

Was it something I said, Don? Days after my online intervention for Don Draper, who was fast losing his Grade A game with the ladies, he showed us some signs of life in the latest episode of “Mad Men.”  It’s far too soon to say he’s all the way back, but we finally saw our first Vintage Don in Season 4. […]

Don Draper: Ladies’ Man in Crisis

by GK on August 17, 2010 · 7 comments

I’m about to do something I never thought I’d have to do: give Don Draper advice on women. If you’ve watched “Mad Men,” you’ve watched one of the most fascinating characters ever to grace a TV screen. On one hand, Don Draper is an inherently unhappy man who is honest with almost no one, including himself — yet what guy hasn’t wanted […]
