In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Dear Blowhards --

* Lex turns up a clip of a self-possessed flapper demonstrating some convincing jiu-jitsu moves. Talk about confident and self-reliant!

* The Patriarch alerts us to Monkey in a Suit, the blog of a young female Indian lawyer. Talk about frank and funny! Sample passage:

I do like to push buttons when it comes to my boyfriends. That's the risk with brown men. Deep down on the inside I do think they're consumate misogynists, dying to bust out a palm and whop their women upside the head, but at the same time I feel white men are running around clutching the bloody stumps where their dicks used to be. It's a veritable conundrum, with men stuck between a wilten cock and a shrunken nutsack.

Gals who can look out for themselves are hot.

That "Monkey in a suit" gal is despicable:

The White guy phenomenon may be unique to American white men. From Spanish porn star Avy Lee Roth on the differences between American & European men:

Duke: "How is sex different in America?"

Avy: "In LA, the guys are like girls. You go to clubs and the guys are like fags. They want to take care of their hair. 'Do I look great or not?' They're like f---ing fags. They don't go straight for a girl. In Europe, guys dress nice but they don't care. If they see a girl, they'll go up to her and say, 'You're hot. Do you want to come up to my place?' They have sex. In the morning, they prepare for you tea and they pay for your taxi.

"Here it is hard to get a cock on the weekend. Guys are like girls. Girls got to chase guys in LA, in f---ing America. Girls are so desperate to get a cock, they're all like little bitches. Guys know girls are easy.

"In Europe, guys chase the girls. Here, girls chase the guys. Here, when I go out with my husband, all the girls, even they know he is my husband, they try to f--- him. They don't respect anything here. There are sacred things in life. They don't care."

Thank you for the shoutout. I was alerted to your interest in my blog by Patriarch, who has e-known and mocked me for a long period of time (I think coming on 5 years or something).

I must admit that I never really thought I would be described as "despicable"-distasteful, yes, but I like to think I've retained a shred of humanity.

Patriarch told me you guys are somewhat more conservative. I admit that my writing leans liberal, and I've grown way more to the left over the years (socially and fiscally) but I'm probably best described as a drifting libertarian and I'm still registered as a Republican. I haven't bothered to change my registration because I think Republicans need wide-eyed hippies like me and I hope one day we get back to protecting the interests of the rich rather than muddying the waters with randomass inflammatory social issues.

Thanks again for your interest and I'll link you guys up and read your site.

Maybe that lady lawyer would like this guy:

On the other hand, maybe they are the same person -- just putting us on.
