Lets try this again

I will be updating regularly from now on. I've been working on a pilot the past few months so all my writing has been going towards that. Keep an eye on here, I have a back catalogue of great stuff that I will be posting over the course of the next few weeks. Stay tuned.

Alright gather around everyone, its time for acting 101: Subtext!

What is subtext? For acting, subtext is the underlying meaning behind spoken words as interpreted by an actor. What does that mean? Basically you’re adding additional meaning to your spoken words by the way you say them. I’ll give you an example:

Lets say I have the following (cheesy) script for a scene I’m about to act in:

“JOHN and MARY are alone in the bedroom. Mary is upset and John is comforting her.

John: Mary, everything is going to be ok, I just want you to know that I love you.

Now if I’m going to play JOHN in this scene there is a lot of information I’m going to need in order to apply the proper subtext to my dialogue. Things like:

What is the relationship between John and Mary? If they are siblings then the line would be spoken much differently than if they were lovers.

What happened just before? What if this scene took place right after they had sex? How would you reflect that in the above line of dialogue?

This is all information that can be implied with the proper subtext.

So…what does this have to do with game? EVERYTHING!!!

I tell students all the time “It doesn’t matter WHAT you say, it’s HOW you say it” Women are MASTERS at subtext, they know that there is loads of information hidden in the way something is said. That’s why women can get so bitchy over seemingly trivial things that guys say; they know what were thinking!

So how do you use subtext effectively? Well I’ll give you an example of something I do.

So let’s say you’re in a venue gaming and you see a great set. Now in any given set at the venue, realistically, the subtext of the dialogue you exchange with them is going to be “Im trying to win you over and make you like me.” A lot of guys subconsciously use this subtext when they open and are often blown out. Why? Because the women read into your subtext and knew exactly what you were doing, this is why you will hear “Is that a line?” often, even if she hadn't heard it before.

A better way to approach is to use the subtext of your opener. This is how most successful puas operate. For instance, my opener involves me asking girls if I look like a drug dealer, so the subtext is simply that its bothering me that I look like a drug dealer and I need their opinion. When I say the opener I put myself in the mind frame that it JUST happened to me so that my subtext is believable. This is what I did for a long time and its how I got good at opening but its boring and doesn’t really create attraction…there is a better way.

Before I continue, a disclaimer: I am an actor and use my acting abilities whenever I can if it benefits me, so you can bet your ass that I act when I’m in set. If you have a problem with that or think that it’s unethical theatrics and trickery best left for the gypsies then just stop reading now before you get upset.

The best way to approach, in my experience, is to look at the venue as a stage (stop laughing) and look at each set as a scene you can enter into. Instead of using the above mind frames when opening im going to use the subtext of a completely made up scenario that makes me exude attractiveness. So I’m going to enter into the set under the subtext of “I just slept with all of these girls” and I will communicate that to them by the way I speak, not by the words im saying. All of my dialogue will remain the same as it normally was.

So what happens? Remember how I said women are MASTERS of subtext? Well in this case, you’re going to be glad they are. If you’re good at subtext (Take acting and improv lessons!) they are going to catch on very quickly and you will create attraction almost instantaneously. Women LOVE guys that they cant quite figure out, so if you go in acting like you just slept with them then you are basically a social enigma, which is like crack to them.

When students ask me things like “I don’t understand, you were talking to them about robots for 3 mins and then all of a sudden they were making out with you, how the hell did that happen??” Using subtext is how it happened. You don’t always have to use the subtext of “I just slept with these girls” you can use whatever you want, but this one works very well and I’ve had a lot of success with it.

Subtext is one of those things that’s pretty hard to grasp through reading so if anyone would like to know more…I’m available for 1 on 1s

My favourite opener (and why it works)

I've actually kept my opener secret for quite some time. I've been using it for almost a year now and it's honestly the best opener I've ever used, not because im biased either, it's just the only opener I've used that does so many positive things (game wise) at once.

Disclaimer: Before I explain the opener I want you to realize that it may not work for you. This opener has been tailor made for ME; like all great openers should. Because of this I highly recommend that you do not use it verbatim, but simply understand what it is that makes it work (which I will explain) and use that knowledge to create your own killer opener.

Check it:

Cajun: Hey guys I need your help, do you think I look like a drug dealer?

Women: Haha/yes/no

Cajun: Alright, because i've been in (city) for 3 days now and 3 different girls have come up to me and been like (flirty) "Hey do you have any weed?" so I say "No, sorry I don't" and then they're all like (bitchy) "alright nevermind then" Whats up with that? Im thinking maybe its the way I dress, what do you guys think?

Women: No I think you look more like a musician, or artist bla bla bla.

Cajun: Alright, well I guess my real question is this: Do GUYS ever come up to you and want something, almost expect it, and when you don't give it to them they get all mad and think you're a bitch?

Women: OMG yes! That happens all the time bla bla bla

Cajun: It's pretty much your life story right!? Alright so now I know how you all feel, I am a victim too! I feel so guys really helped me through this though, I feel much better, you are all totally my new best friends. Wait, how do you guys know each other?

So there it is. Doesn't seem all that special does it? Well let me explain why it works...

1. When I say "3 different girls have come up to me and been like hey do you have any weed?" I put my arm around my target (imitating the girl who did it to me) and deliver the line as seductively as possible, I also lock myself in naturally. This gives me risk-free kino early on not to mention all the benefits of locking in. Also when I say "(bitchy) alright nevermind then" I give the target a mean look and push her away. It's push/pull and even though im acting it still creates attraction.

2. When they say "You kind of look more like a musician or artist" which usually happens about 80% of the time, I say "Wow you're all very perceptive, I AM a musician and an artist" Its a little DHV that doesnt come off as braggy since they brought it up.

3. The fact that I know guys come up to them wanting something (sex) and get mad when they can't get it shows that I am not only socially intelligent, but that im also NOT one of those guys.

4. Most of the time at least one of the girls will ask "So DO you have any weed?" in which I respond "You're bad! But uhh (kino) we'll talk about that later (wink)"

5. I'll use this opener on several sets throughout the course of the night (I prefer to drop in and out of multiple sets all night rather than stay in one) what happens is that I will have girls walk by me and say things like "Hey drug dealer! (kino)" this not only socially proofs me but also voids any Amogs within ear shot (Nobody wants to fuck with a drug dealer).

6. When I re-enter sets they always blow open because im the "charming, funny drug dealer" and they introduce me as such to their friends. If guys are present they almost always become beta immediately upon hearing im a "drug dealer" (see above).

So there you have it, I've used this opener on THOUSANDS of sets (Just ask Tenmagnet, im sure he's quite sick of it at this point) and its stuck 99.9% of the time (I used it on a drugdealer and his "bitches" in Atlanta once and almost got shot haha). I came up with this opener because girls actually DO come up to me all the time and ask me for weed. There's a lot of body language that goes on during this opener that I don't feel like explaining right now, I will make a post soon on body language though. So be sure to check back.

How I made out with Joan Jett

The title of this one is a little misleading, im not entirely sure if it actually WAS Joan Jett that I made out with, but let me tell you the story and you can decide for yourself.

So me and Tenmagnet were in San Francisco in late October last year (2006) doing a seminar. A lot of the instructors (Save Future) hate San Francisco because of the lack of attractive women and I generally agree with this, but I had such a great time in San Francisco that I have no qualms about the city whatsoever. I even ended up getting laid twice during the weekend by two hot women (well 1 hot, 1...hippy dogwalker), and I could literally make half a dozen blogs about all the cool shit me and Tenmagnet did in the 3 days we were there (and I probably will), so San Fran is pretty fuckin rightous in my books. Anyways, back to the story...

On the second night of the seminar we went to this smallish bar on a trendy strip near the wharf I believe. It had a small dance floor and a patio in the back with a lot of seating so we spent most of the night hitting the seated sets there. 1 am rolls around and all the students are in sets and doing really well so I decide to game a bit for myself.

I see a group of 4 women come in who all look about 35-40ish but are dressed REALLY fucking cool. I generally enjoy talking to women who are 30+ because they always seem so much more appreciative of the attention, so I walk over and open them.

Cajun: You guys are seriously the best dressed women here, are you in a band or something?

Two of the women laugh and look over at their rocker chick looking friend who I hadnt really noticed yet.

Blonde in Red dress: You're cute, whats your name?

Cajun: Cajun, as in the spice, and you?

Blonde in Red Dress: (I forget her name)

Cajun: Introduce me to your friend.

At this point 2 of the other girls went to get a drink so there was only the blonde in the red dress and the rocker chick.

Blonde in Red Dress: This is Sandy, were lesbians (laughs)

Cajun: Really? I love lesbians! Come here Sandy, you're my new American Best friend.

I put my arm around Sandy, Tenmagnet notices and comes over and talks to the blonde in the red dress.

Sandy: Oh you're not american?

Cajun: Nope, Canadian, don't make fun of me though, im sensitive. Wow you look a LOT like Joan Jett.

Sandy: Laughs, yeah I get that all the time.

I notice a tattoo sticking out from her cleavage.

Cajun: Wait a sec...let me see your cleavage.

Sandy: I dont have any.

I pull her shirt down a bit and see that she has the same cleavage tatoo that Joan Jett has. I realize that if it IS Joan Jett and I call her on it that It might fuck the sarge up, so I keep quiet.

Cajun: I like your tattoo, you're hardcore like Joan Jett too, thats so fucking sexy. I've had the biggest crush on her since forever. You're officially the coolest lesbian i've ever met.

Sandy: Haha you're so cute, I actually play in a Joan Jett cover band. (smiles at me seductively)

Cajun: I bet you do. (I grab her by the lower back and pull her in closer)

Cajun: Wow, you're in really good shape (she was fucking ripped from what I could feel) its too bad you're a lesbian.

Sandy: Yeah, its too bad you're a guy, your sexy as hell.

Cajun: You ever kissed a straight canadian guy?

Sandy: Not in a while.

Cajun: Come here...

We make out HARD and she grabs my ass (some lesbian). Her friends come back and tell me and Tenmagnet that they are going back to the hotel but that we should come with them. I begrudgingly tell them that I cant leave my other friends (students) and "Sandy" leaves me her hotel name and room number with the name "Joan" written on it, which I still have.

We ended up pulling some hot younger girls that night so I never went to the hotel (which I regret to this day after learning what I did later).

So I get back to Toronto and tell my friend about the whole thing who is a HUGE Joan Jett fan. She tells me this:

-Joan Jett had a concert in San Francisco the next week.

-I thought Joan Jett's head was shaved so I never thought it was actually her, my friend showed me a recent picture and her hair was EXACTLY THE SAME AS SANDY's and she looked identical.

-The hotel they were staying in was one of the nicest in San Fran.

-Who the fuck travels around in a Joan Jett cover band staying in 5 star hotels??

-They had the exact same cleavage tattoo (which arguably could have been fake but COME ON)

So there you go, I cant ever be 100% certain but holy fuck thats a lot of weird coincidences if it wasn't her.
