Okay, this is a little fucked up…

Okay, well, it’s no secret that a lot of guys don’t really like or respect the James Method.  I don’t know much about it, so I’m not gonna comment on the validity of his system (but from what I’ve seen, it doesn’t lookt hat good).  Anyway, there’s a small contingent of guys who spend their time doing God’s work and making fun of said James along with his method.  The first was when a picture of James’s "girlfriend" made the rounds.  Needless to say, it wasn’t a pic of the most flattering girl in the world.

Well, I guess James has a new picture up of a new girlfriend.  And though this one is better than the last, there’s something in the picture that is more than a little distrubing…

did the rounds, it seems James decided to post another picture of a girl.

She’s nice and all, but look closely at the picture on the wall. The one below the Fight Club picture.

Fuck me, that is one sick twat.

You can find this picture M’s referring to at the mirror site here.

Frankly, I think it’s extremely disrespectful to keep something like that on your wall.  If that’s James’s place, what does it say about him as a person?  If it’s the girl’s place, what does it say about the type of girl you can attract using his method?

Personally, I’m disgusted.

Guaging the Dominant Girl

May 31, 2004 by  
Filed under Tips & Tricks

You know, in every group of people, there’s an inherent social hierarchy that exists. In every group of women, there’s always a leader, a “dominant girl” who pretty much controls the thoughts and action of all the other girls she’s with. You’ve seen it before, so have I. Now, Tyler Durden comments on this phenomenon.

Merging a loose set

May 31, 2004 by  
Filed under Tips & Tricks

In one of Tyler’s rare, short articles, he shares with us a really great tactic for keeping a tenuous set together, despite all odds.

Tyler Durden writes:
Something that I always do is remerge a loose set. I go in and hook IOIs from the girl that I opened immediately. The second that I see that the IOIs are there and that she’ll do whatever I ask, I will use an opinion opener and say that I want a full panel female opinion and to call her friend over. This way I can remove the other girl from whatever guy she is attached to, and if the girl doesn’t want to leave the guy then I will say over and over “Yell at her to come over. Tell her too, I really want to ask her this.” I do this when I pull 2sets with PlayboyLA quite often if its afterhours on the street. I will see the IOIs from a girl, and start walking with her and tell her over and over to yell at her friend to come too. I’ll also say “Tell her I’m nice, and to listen to this story”, or anything like that, in order to unlock the friend. If she says it enough times, particularly if she’s the dominant friend, it will work well. PlayboyLA does the same for me if he hooks IOIs with his girl before I hook them with mine.

I prefer this because it gets my wing a girl as well, and also because if left loose, the girl can become a potential problem if she grows bored of the guy that she is with (often the case with AFC naturals), and then just drag her friend off out of jealousy that she is having fun with me. I may well re-isolate right after, but now the obstacle has met me and won’t unpredictably make an issue for me in most cases.

This is good stuff. I think a lot of people don’t quite understand the importance of having solid group theory while sarging. I mean, being able to merge different sets and play them off of each other is a real advanced (yet vital) skill to have if you want to get REALLY good at pick-up. In my opinion, no one is able to teach this skill better than Mystery (www.mysterymethod.com). So if anyone wants to get this skillset down, I’d recommend checking out a seminar.

Be Hardcore, the best of MrSex4UNYC

Someone posted a rather LONG (but exceptionally good) post on mASF containing all sorts of great quotes from the MrSex4UNYC archive. MrSex4UNYC is one of the all time old schoolers. His archive is fantastic, and since he doesn’t post anymore, that’s the only thing we got to rely on from information from him. So when someone takes the time to comb that archive and find the things worth sharing, it’s worth checking out.

One-Itis

Filed under Tips & Tricks

We’ve all been there and done it before. The dreaded “One-Itis,” otherwise known as the ailment of liking that “One Special Girl” and wanting her more than any other woman on earth. A want so intense, that it’s actually painful.

This is probably the single leading recruiter of men to the PUA community across the world.

Well, Tyler Durden has decided to tackle the subject of the vile & dreaded “One-Itis” in a recent post of his on the Advanced board of mASF. It’s rather long, but it’s a good article. For all you guys out there suffering from the “one woman” syndrome, I suggest you check it out.

Making Her Uninvested In You For Sex

Dimitri, everyone’s favorite swashbuckling pick-up artist, has an EXCELLENT post up on the Advanced boards about how if a woman views you as a friend and a legitimate part of her life, that it can be really hard for you to have sex with here, whereas if you’re emotionally unavailable and aloof, she’s going to practically be beating down your door.

On with the brilliance…

More TD Dissing from the Croatia Camp

May 28, 2004 by  
Filed under Drama & Rumors

Wow, not since the East Coast/West Coast rap wars have I seen such a bitter rivalry.  Someone in the Field Reports section of mASF put up this post that wasn’t really all that kind towards the RSD boys, while exhaulting the Croatian guys.

You can check out the thread here.

The whole thing kind-of reminds me of those old Kung-Fu movies where they all have different schools with different masters, and are always fighting over which school is better and which Kung-Fu is the strongest.

Gayboy!

Where Does Material Come From?

In a roaring rampage of what seems to be excellent posts after a relatively quiet period, Harmless is back with a subject that seems to be on the minds of lots of newbies out there (judging from the sheer numbers of emails I get asking “How do you come up with your material?”).

Well, I think Harmless has some great stuff to say on the subject, so I’ll just hand it over to him…

Yet More Controversy From The Croatia Camp

May 27, 2004 by  
Filed under Drama & Rumors

I found a thread posted by croation Pick-Up Artist Shark on the Advanced forums of mASF about how he uses "You are beautiful, I would like to get to know you," as his Opener as part of the Direct Approach theory that the Croatian guys seem to be big on.

Of course, there’s a great deal of debate within the community as to the validity of this approach.  Some swear that the direct approach will blow you out with a girl immediately unless you have the looks/money/power/fame to back it up.  Others hold fast to the belief that if you’re congruent and alpha in your belief with it, it will work better than any other approach out there.

Obviously, with this controversy, you have quite a few people taking Shark to task about the validity of this type of approach (especially people from the Tyler Durden camp).  It makes for an interesting debate.  Direct Approaches very rarely work for me, but then again, I’m not as congruent as someone like Shark seems to be.

So check out the thread by clicking here.

When you’re done reading it, I’d like to hear other people’s thoughts on this.  Do you guys think the Direct Method is a bunch of bunk? Or is it the best thing since sliced bread?

Inquiring minds want to know.

You know, dieting is a life-long hobby of mine, and I’m sure for some of you guys out there looking to lose a few pounds for the summer months, you can relate.
