  • Russell Brown,

    Baudrillard, Bathes and Derrida are for real men.

    Without wishing to re-start the po-mo wars, none of that has ever seemed shaggable to me.

    Luckily I'm 18 years married with three children, so it hardly seems to matter. Apparently 'A' waited long enough for me to grow out of my 'I'm really deep and here's my bookcase to prove it' period. Did I wear stripped shirts? Don't think there are any photos.

    Anyhoo, I was being nostalgic. I could probably pull Mythologies off the shelf though, if nothing else.

    Wheatgrass still tastes awful.

    he-whores

    Hey!

    This is my vote for a Kim Deal archetype.

    Did I wear stripped shirts? Don't think there are any photos.

    And even if there were, you wouldn't just take them willy-nilly to correlate to an outside, objective reality, now, would you? So you're in the clear either way.

    Are we able to in some way distinguish the above guy, who is totally admirable

    On the dancefloor. Otherwise, what Danielle said and Emma's test, and other stuff

    Are you completely mad? I may have to discipline and punish you for such presumptions of the order of things.

    'It's not knowledge bro, until you use it.' Or something.

  • Sofie Bribiesca,

    Emma, I have to contradict you there. Boring girls to death talking about one's specialty is not the mark of a sensitive man. It is, however, the mark of a genuine man.

    Soo, what if the girl is trying to get his attention precisely because of his expertise, and he wont discuss, because he's feeling used. Seriously, trying to design a house (to scale) and all I get is. "when I'm good and ready"
    Not sensitive at all :)

  • andin,

    What you mean this doesn't work anymore!

    It has even been theorised that bipedalism evolved in humans to allow the fashionably new, larger, flexible penis to be displayed to discerning females.

    I dont get out much, as someone elsewhere noted.

    Tough one. I've been in this situation many a time. Sometimes "when I'm good and ready" is the only way to avoid a lie.

  • Islander,

    Marino? I knew they were trying to make a silk out of mussel byses but - They've managed it?
    Waua!

    That erm penis observation is kinda ancient history: bonobo penes would make the average H. sap. sap. cry-

  • Isabel Hitchings,

    Boring girls to death talking about one's specialty is not the mark of a sensitive man. It is, however, the mark of a genuine man.

    A man who is passionate about something and articulate about sharing that passion is remarkably sexy though. I don't have to share his passion (yet) so long as I can see how one might get to love that thing.

  • Islander,

    Wheatgrass tastes green. And fiberous. I understand why people in the deep throes of veganism might resort to it but - y'know, go for carrots good folk-

    Don't ever ask me to talk about algorithm design methodologies then ... I wouldn't want to lead you on.

    It does depend somewhat on the thing. As demonstrated ably by a good-looking young man of my acquaintance whose passionate speeches are largely based around the finer details of power supplies. Other engineers' eyes glaze over, let alone the rest of us.

    Or cucumbers. Now that does sound dirty but seriously not intended. Yeah right says some of yous :)

  • Islander,

    Sofie - you *never* want to know about the cucumber/gourd/marrow conversation that took place here in Big O - me, plaintively offering among the humungous giggling heap, cucurbits dont *do* it that way....

  • Geoff Lealand,

    Baudrillard, Bathes and Derrida are for real men.

    As in regular bathing maketh the man? I think you mean Barthes. But such an ignoble end--being run over by a laundry van (the kind of connection that Ian Dalziel would relish?)

    As for philosophers, give me Raymond Williams any day. Very generous in spirit, and he became more radical as he grew older (as we all should).

    Re Emma's Dark and Brooding category: it is probably best to recall Woody Allen's caution that It is very difficult to appear Byronic without appearing to be moronic

  • Megan Wegan,

    Man, I go away for a couple of hours, and you people are all interesting...

    A man who is passionate about something and articulate about sharing that passion is remarkably sexy though. I don't have to share his passion (yet) so long as I can see how one might get to love that thing.

    There is nothing I love more than someone who cares about something. Could be beer, could be, like, rally car driving.

    (it's probably not rally car driving)

    But yeah, people who are passionate about things, and enthuse: Hot.

  • Emma Hart,

    That is actually true. Cause you know what I've always hated? Post-modernism. I'd love to argue against the theory here, but I have seen post-modernism get a guy laid. Well, I say 'seen'...

    Slash!

    You're a bad man, Brown. Also,

    Bollocks to that. I was much better with the Jung. Quote that shit when you're high, and it's deep.

    Yeah, see, I'm calling 'actual sensitive pretending to be fake-sensitive to get laid'.

    Eh? I'll be in touch

    Oh cmon, I was having enough trouble keeping up as it was

  • Sacha,

    I've only seen that work for the visiting lecturer - and I suspect it was all about the power of his role and the exotic accent rather than his corduroy jacket or the subject matter
