Why CRaPUSA ? The realization that we go through so much CRaP in our lives and that people try to hide all the bad stuff. Most want to be safe. I personally think it is so much more rewarding to piss off as many people as possible and to push the envelope to its limit. OK, so maybe not always. ..So we live in a world of uncertainty and our education system sucks, and our economy is doomed,the ocean wildlife is in turmoil,our politicians are thieves, and terrorists are trying to kill us blah blah
1. provoking or intended to provoke sexual interest a sexy dressa sexy book
2. feeling sexual interest; aroused
3. interesting, exciting, or trendy a sexy projecta sexy new car
OK. Now that we have that under our belt, lets discuss what most of us think is sexy.
Men have quite a different viewpoint on this. Women however think a nice dress or outfit is sexy. Most will get dressed for a date with a guy or their husband etc., and think they are dressed sexy in whatever they are wearing. Chances are this is true, BUT......guys are looking at other stuff. Maybe it's because most guys are just plain animals. Naturally that does not relate to me ???????
Some guys think their wife is the sexiest person around. OK, so that is probably only 10% or so. The other 90 % are probably going to say the bartender or server at a cool restaurant or bar is.
But that is the wonderful thing about Choice......We all get to make up our rules. We all get to dictate what we think is best. We all get to lie to our friends, partners, or whoever for the sake of our privacy.
Find me one business person (guy), or guy flyer, who hasn't checked out some flight attendant and thought she was the sexiest thing in the world.
Find me one guy who hasn't gone to a parents conference at their kids school who hasn't thought one teacher was really sexy.
Find me one guy who hasn't looked at a wonderful smile and thought she was the sexiest person with the greatest smile.
I rest my case. Guys only care about girls when it comes to the word sexy (actually, not all guys. ) ????? We don't care about cars, books, clothing, or anything else. We care about plain honest to goodness sex and what it does and what it means. I guess the bottom line is simple.
Most guys are not going to consider this picture sexy.........This one is for you girls.....Payback is definitely a Bitch. So what have we learned today ????
FYI. Any gender can be substituted for men, women, etc. in any of the above.. Big difference from 2011 to 2019.
Here is a blast from the past for all you New Yorkers. Yes, it's Jahn's Ice Cream. I bet you already are thinking one or two things to yourself ????? The Kitchen Sink, or the Awful Awful, or the Screwballs delight ???? Anyway to give you a little history of this great ice cream parlor that only made its own ice cream and was a destination for kids like myself who grew up in NY. We would go there with 4/5 guys and try to finish one of the Kitchen Sinks. Now the Kitchen Sink was a Little ice cream sundae with at least 30 scoops of ice cream, banana's, fruit, syrup, nuts,cherries, and who remembers what else. I seem to remember that if you completely finished one, you would get another one for free. Fat chance of ever finishing one, and if you did, who would want another one. Besides, in those days we were all so thin, no-one even knew what the word FAT was.... I really don't remember what was in some of the other specials, but they were all great.
Jahn's was in Richmond Hill, Queens, which was not too far from Jamaica. It also had a nickelodeon inside which was also quite old. From research it was opened in the 1930's and the last one closed in 2007. The one in Richmond Hill was the most famous and the one we always went too. Although I have to admit that once we learned what girls were, we went to the one in Forest Hills. It was larger and had more girls there. What can I tell you, I probably was shallow then as well. During the mid 1950's, I understand there were several opened throughout NY, but who knows ? In it's heyday the place was always mobbed. It was next door to a big RKO Kieth's movie .INFO on Jahn's Back in the day, a date was considered going to a movie and then either to a diner or ice cream place... Hey, I am only transposing what I have read. ( I was much too busy playing ball and trying to get laid. What did I know ? )
http://www.richmondhillhistory.org/Jahns.shtml This link really gives the history of Mr. Jahn, and all the close to accurate information about this NY landmark. Of course like the RKO Keith's movie which is also gone, it's a thing of the past never to return.
This is a sad picture of the Kieth's in Flushing that is now being made into Condos after years of neglect along with a later Jahn's next door. I would think these pictures are from the 70's, because the movie had already been closed.
There is really no meaning to this blog other than a little trip down memory lane for those of you that remember this. For you others............this was just some of the great things that Made NY that are once again no longer there..........Growing up as a kid, I remember lots of ice cream places like Krum's in the Bronx, Addie Valens,, . Then there was the bungalow bar ice cream trucks that came to your street daily.... A single single cone was 5 cents, a double 10 cents. ( I looked that up ). Now I am really getting nostalgic and am thinking about Horn and Hardart Automat........But That is for another trip down memory lane.........Guess even I can't be full of CRaP daily. But don't despair. Tomorrow I will be back bitching in full force.
What are they doing to us ? Why do they deem it fit to take away the last of the public display of sexiness that still exists ? Why can't they just leave well enough alone ?
There is not a adult male in the world that doesn't enjoy taking a peek at beauty. There is no one in his right mind that will not take a quick peek at a great pair of young sexy legs, or a great start of a wonderful tush, or anything about a sexy young lady. We love it, and let's not kid ourselves.....Most females love being looked at just as much. It's not a bad thing and it certainly does not hurt anyone. In fact, I have to believe it makes for a better world, a more relaxed and comfortable environment. So why the fuck are some people trying to ruin this ?
Why are they insisting on taking away that little bit of skin along with that wonderful bikini view from us ? Isn't the world in enough of a turmoil without adding to it ? Why are companies like Trendy Tops trying to ruin it for most normal, red blooded American men ?????
What is next ? Will some company make pull down shades attached to the front of skirts and dresses for the sole purpose of getting out of a car or some such other act of movement ?
Is side boobs and the old side boob look also a thing of the past ?
Will another Un-American company come along and make a retractable awning to eliminate this wonderful view made popular by Hollywood ? All these questions and no answers.
If you got it, flaunt it.. Nothing Un-American about a little honest advertising.
My own personal opinion is that we are being unduly attached by clothing companies trying to invoke a major cover up on things we like to look at and discuss, as well as things that just make our day just a little bit more bearable (note the pun).
Please don't let this happen. Let sexy women be sexy.
New York in the 70's was probably the most exciting time for a young, good looking, straight guy with a good job and some good drugs to really party. (Was that me??? ) It was a time before Aids, a time of crime, a time of filth in the city, a time of corruption, a time of cocaine, a time of homeless people in the streets, a time for disco, and a time to party on. I was fortunate to be living in the City then, making a little money, had the availability for drugs and liked to have fun. I was in between wives and thought I was really hot shit at that time.
I am probably giving a little too much information now, and maybe should just keep some of this to myself, but know that I was obviously not the only person who did all this. Actually I don't really know if I want my daughter to know this, but it's a little late now. With about 8 million people living in the city then, I am sure there are many of you that experienced some, if not all of what I did. Being single I went out probably 6 nights a week but always managed to stay home on Saturday, or the entire weekend ,especially if I was lucky enough to have custody of my kids that weekend.
The week days were usually pretty much the same. Work till 6, walk home (how lucky to be living in the city), spend an hour at my rooftop pool and gym, then take a power nap, and wahoo. Time to go out. Take some ludes in the right pocket and some coke in the left. What could be better ? Or so I thought . Meet someone for dinner, do drugs, have sex, go to sleep about 3 or 4 am, and off to work by 7am. Don't know how I did it then, but I did. Of course there was always time for tennis, sports events at the garden, or the stadium, shows, museums, business dinners and whatever. And when I say whatever, I mean whatever.
Which leads me up to one of the wildest and strangest happenings in NY. The opening of Plato's Retreat. Look at the video below, which clearly describes this whatever you want to call it. Remember now, this was many years ago, and New York was crazy and untamed then.
By now you are thinking that I am a complete degenerate, but that is not true. Plato's had very strict rules that had to be observed. There were only straight and lesbian's permitted and you had to have a partner to get in. This was in what is today one of the most expensive buildings in NY, and was once home to the Continental Baths. I could go on explaining everything, but these links make for some good, fun, reading about what was, and will never be again. I did go there once or twice, but probably more so to be able to say that I went there. The reality is this was the second location. The first one was on 34 Th. St. and 10 Th. Ave which was really seedy, but then it moved uptown. Success has a way of making things take on a life of it's own.
If pictures speak a thousand words, then I am speechless now. That's all gone now. Gone are the days of Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll. (Maybe not) I am not quite sure why I felt the need to write and share this. I think it was flipping forward and looking at a bunch of blogs the other day. I said to myself that if I see another blog with ugly kids, with the &(*+& Family, with John and Jane camping, with nothing but ugly people telling their boring story of Gloria's 3rd birthday party, Bob's first bike ride, Harold and Maude going to church, on and on and on, I might just kill myself.
The End of Plato's
I just had to share Plato's and a little bit of old New York Disco history to those few people that might either remember it, or try to wonder what it would have been like to experience it. Check out the links above as it is really interesting.
