Cultivate Your Creativity- Don’t Be Shackled By What You Already Know

MEAT EATING LOVERS VS. VEGAN LOVERS: True or false: Vegansmake better lovers?

I have not tested this theory?

THE SMELL TEST: What you Eat will determine how your breath smells and how your skin smells.

I learned while preparing for my upcoming trip to Peru and Brazil that what you eat causes your body to produce volatile chemicals that are released into the air – these airborne chemicals either attract mosquitoes to you or repel mosquitoes away from you depending on what you have eaten.

ASIDE: The woman who is wearing this shirt will be taking care of my orchid plants while I am traveling in Peruand Brazil this summer and she is a fabulous cook. (Her husband is a carnivore.) I dropped my orchid plants off at her house tonight (Wednesday August 2, 2018). She and her husband treated me to a wonderful homemade dinner. He barbecued Meat for an entree and she prepared a variety of dishes including Vietnamese Spring Rolls.

After dinner, I asked both of them (privately) whether vegans make better lovers. I leave for Peru on Monday(Aug 6, 2018).

See video of her garden posted on Instagram @garyspassion.

FOOD FACTS: There is an art and science to pairing common ingredients to create extraordinary dishes.

MOLECULAR GASTRONOMY: Each ingredient has a complex network of chemical structures that give each ingredient its own unique flavor. These compounds are responsible for 80 percent of what we perceive when we take a bite or sip. A simple ingredient like lettuce has about twenty such compound.

Coffee has nearly 1,000. When it comes to enjoying food, our sense of taste would be nothing without our sense of smell. Test that for yourself. Next time you sip your coffee, pinch your nose closed and see if it doesn’t taste like warm, slightly bitter water. Without your nose to sense hundreds of volatile compounds (called aromatic compounds), coffee – or any substance – becomes nearly flavorless.

Think about how much the aroma of burgers on a grill tell you about the food’s flavor … as the scent wafts through the summer air … even if you are sitting far away from it.

Relationships: “A Beneficial Purpose”

Gary : July 23, 2018 1:32 am : blog

Once upon a time, corporations in Europe and then in the United States were given their charters by the government to carry out specific endeavors meant to enhance the common good.

Status as a corporationwould give the proprietors special protection against personal liability as well as the ability to pool resources and manpower that could not easily be achieved by an individual proprietorship.

QUESTION: What would personal relationships be like TODAY if people specified “beneficial PURPOSE” they have in mind clearly at the beginning of their relationship?

Gary Smolker,
FashionBlogger, World Traveler and Trial Attorney.

PHOTO ABOVE of two people who appear to be authentically enjoying each other without fakery manipulation self-aggrandizement or hidden agenda.

HISTORICAL NOTE: Corporate charters today are handed out to anyone who asks, without the founders having to justifytheir need for this special status by specifying their beneficial purpose. Today people treat each other – treat their boyfriend and their girlfriend, and treat their husband and treat their wife – as if they were/are COMMODITIES.

In “HIP” cities like San Francisco male-female relationships are short-term; there are more pet dogs than children. People have a longer lasting relationship with their pet than with their significant other.

She (ALEXA) is absolutely beautiful, friendly, calm, centered, kind, gracious, wholesome and shy. She refines and restyles high performance automobiles.

Some of the automobiles brought to her to restyle were purchased by someone for a base price of $850,000 or more before being brought to Alexa for restyling.

Stylish shy womencan’t help glowing. They are naturals who they can’t stop expressing their creativityand emitting good vibes.

NATURAL BEAUTIES emit good vibes and glow. ADVICE: High style women have style. It is a core part of their being.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO DEEPLY UNDERSTAND NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION

Gary : July 8, 2018 5:28 am : blog

Positive vibes are everything. An enlightened person changes when he or she receives new information/vibes that changes his/her understanding and/or his/her point of view.

PAY ATTENTION TO THE VIBES people emit. Understand how women and men see/think and understand things and how they communicate verbally, nonverbally, and by their tone, by their vibes and by their focus.

ADVICE TO MEN: Try not to assume anything. However it is probably safe to assume the woman who just got her nails done like the nail treatment shown does not intend to wash the dishes after dinner tonight. If in doubt, ask. MEN WAKE UP. LOOK at your special woman’s nailtreatment. The woman who had her nails done like this is sending a signal. ADVICE TO MEN AND WOMEN: The relationshipbetween two people more than anything else determines their ability to achieve results.

HUMAN RELATIONSHIP IS NOTHING OTHER THAN ATTUNEMENT. Be “attuned.” Constantly strive to be attuned.

WHY WOMEN GET BOOB JOBS

Gary : July 4, 2018 5:25 am : blog

Today I asked two friends (a man and a woman) “Why do women get boob jobs?”

The man replied: “I never met a woman who was happy with the size of her breasts. Everyone of them wished they were smaller or larger than what they were. One woman had breasts just like the famous Venus in the Louvre and she told me that nobody had ever told her she had attractive breasts and she didn’t believe me about the statute until we went to the Louvre.” The woman replied:

Women got liberated and then bought into the idea women were supposed to look like the centerfold of PLAYBOY magazine.

“Nobody has a boob job in Europe.” She also told me that before women start caring about boys they have fun riding their bicycles but after they start caring about boys they start trying to compete, then life stops being fun.

Being an adult is fun. Being an adult is contagious. The smart men I know care more about whether a woman smiles than the size of her breasts.

ADVICE: The women in this photo have beautiful smiles and are beautiful people. That is what counts. SUCCESS IS BEING ABLE TO SMILE. There is nothing more pleasant than being around cheerful happy lively, intelligent, mature, gracious good-natured, compassionate, helpfull, smiling people.

The Five Second Rule to Prevent Sexual Harassment

Gary : June 19, 2018 2:26 pm : blog, Uncategorized

SEXUAL HARASSMENT TRAINING

WARNING. Enact a rule/law that makes it sexual harassment for a man to look at a woman for five seconds or longer. If there is a rule/law that states it is sexual harassment for a man to look at a woman for more than five seconds, women wearing the nails shown … will cause many men to break that rule. Gary Smolker, Fashion Blogger.

CALL TO ACTION: Fashion advocates unite. Unite against the effort being made to illegalize (criminalize) sexual attractiveness.

SEXUAL ATTRACTION IS NATURAL AND NORMAL. A healthy heterosexual man who sees an attractive woman is going to look at her for more than five seconds. Penalizing a man for breaking the 5 second rule for looking at a woman with those nails for more than five seconds would be like penalizing a man for sneezing. The “don’t look at a woman for more than five second” rule is equivalent to making it against the law for a man to sneeze.

At lunch today I was told that Netflix has enacted a five second rule to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. For the sake of the men working at Netflix, if there is a rule at Netflix that looking at a woman for five seconds is sexual harassment, I hope none of the women working st Netflix wear nails like those shown above while they are in the workplace.

COMMENT: The civilized world has trouble dealing with human sexuality. QUERY: Has the social mores pendulum swung back from sexual freedom back to Puritanism? Will everyone soon be wearing Burkas FASHION ADVOCATES UNITE AGAINST EFFORTS TO CRIMINALIZE SEXUAL ATTRACTIVENESS BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

Colors & Shapes Can Seduce The Eye And The Mind.

Gary : June 10, 2018 12:25 pm : blog, Uncategorized

MEN AND WOMEN REACT STRONGLY AND POSITIVELY TO COLORS, SENSUALITY, AND SOULFULNESS.

Example: There are many exact artistically perfect proportions and precisely right combinations of colors and shapes in fine cuisine.

That is one of the many reasons fine cuisine is fine cuisine.

ABOVE IS A PHOTO of fine cuisine — a photo of a colorful dish served at a popular world famous restaurant in South America. – If I remember correctly, you need to make reservations at least three months in advance to get a table there.

PSYCHOLOGICAL COMMENT: Men and women live in colors. Colors effect mood. Men and women react emotionally to colors. That is why that dish looks so stunning.

>*ADVICE TO WOMEN: Men react emotionally to complexity. Men know by intuition and by experience that Complex, Bright, Quick Decision Making, Strong, Spiritual, Sensitive, Intelligent, Lively, Colorful, Independent Thinking, Healthy, Generous, Fun to Be With Women add much welcome color and pleasant excitement to life.

 

*ADVICE TO MEN.: Women compete with one another for prestige. That is why they carry expensivehigh fashion designer handbags.

ADVISORY CONCLUSION: COLORFUL ART CONQUERS AND SEDUCES. Before I knew what it was, seeing that dish made my mouth water. I’ve had similar experiences with women.

PRECAUTIONARY ADVICE TO MEN AND WOMEN: Testosterone is not your friend. All that glitters is not gold.

ADVICE: DO NOT PRETEND THAT SQUARES ARE ROUND.

Gary : June 1, 2018 2:19 pm : blog

The most active thing that a man can do is not simply to do something but to dedicate himself to doing it

PERSONAL NOTE: I love flowers, fast cars, fashion, style, glamor and women who know how to dress be fun and behave themselves. PHILOSOPHICAL OBSERVATION: Life is a space of time in which there is imposed upon us a long series of unavoidable necessities, which we must face unless we are to succumb.

QUERY: Life is brief and urgent. Does she need a mani-pedi? If so, she should go to LAQUE in North Hollywood, California. Does she need her hair styled? If so she should go to … blah blah blah.
Mystery Sells: Humans are essentially an exploratory species. The natural tendencies of the species is to explore and investigate the world around it.

Fashion Is Easy, Mystery Style Is Hard. Choose Mystery!

Gary : May 20, 2018 1:25 pm : blog

This privately owned privately used transportation vehicle – limo – comfortably seats twelve.

When the owner comes to LA his driver picks him up… In between his trips to LA it is parked at his home -idly waiting in his garage along with his driver waiting for him to come back to LA.

The photo taken by me this morning in the parking lot in front of my favorite Starbucks on Van Nuys Blvd in Sherman Oaks.

QUESTION: Does this private limo need a custom wrap or paint job to make it stand out? MY WEAK ANSWER: Why go only part way. Hey Ho Lets Go. Of course this limo needs a custom wrap or paint job … it shouldn’t be plain black.

Plain black is so plain. My weak advice is the owner should wander over to Sticker City, either in person or send color coordinator, and have the artist at Sticker City transform this limo to #gorgeous. COMMENT: There is more to SoCal lifestyle than pretty girls in bikinis playing volleyball on the beach.

STRONG COUNTER ARGUMENT: it should remain black because a black color creates mystery, makes people want to know who is inside it. Black focuses attention on the mystery of who is the owner and who is in the limo.

STRONG ADVISORY COMMENT Fashionistas and their beauty consultants and image consultants and PR agents make important difficult choices and complex decisions about presentation, fashion, style and image every day. It’s not easy to be glamorous sexy hip cool desirable or MYSTERIOUS or popular.

The color that would be right to make an exotic car stand out would not be tight or right for a limo. If a limo doesn’t create mystery cache for its occupant it’s not living up to its full potential utility.

Daring Sandals On A Rainy Day

Gary : May 13, 2018 1:44 am : blog

It sometimes trains in Southern California, in Sherman Oaks, and everywhere else all over Los Angeles. Today it was raining in Sherman Oaks, Encino and Van Nuys as I drove from my home in Van Nuys to Starbucks in Sherman Oaks and while I was on my way to my office in Encino.

A few hours ago, While I was drinking a cup of coffee in Starbucks in Sherman Oaks, I saw a woman wearing those shoes in Sherman Oaks Starbucks. She was in Starbucks also. When I asked her permission to photograph her shoes SHE told me she didn’t know it was going to rain today and she was happy she had just got a pedicure. She gave me permission to take this photo and to post it on Instagram.

COMMENT: Nice pedicure. Fabulous stylish and glamorous shoes. BTW, I like talking to strangers. I talk to strangers wherever I am, all the time.

Metaphysics & Moral Philosophy Are Important But It’s All About The Bag & Shoes

Gary : May 7, 2018 9:15 am : blog

 

The fairer sex has always been very interested in decorating themselves. Photographs of shoes taken by me in the Shoe Department of Nordstrom in the Westfield Topanga Shopping Mall yesterday (May 5, 2018).

ASIDE: Among medieval thinkers, Abelard’s life is one of the most colorful. Abelard thrived on #book-learning and chose the pursuit of logic and philosophy over the promised glories of a military career.

Abelard was the foremost logician of his day. The medieval university of Paris – known as the Sorbonne today – arose out of his fame as a teacher. His brilliance combined with personal arrogance combined to win him both throngs of students and life-long enemies.

Abelard was castrated for having an affair with one of his students (Heloise) and getting her #pregnant, by men hired by her uncle . Abelard considered this humiliation God’s just judgment on his lust, and both partners entered #religious orders. Abelard did not live a boring existence. Abelard defined SIN: SIN IS CONSENT TO WHAT IS UNFITTING, OR NOT DOING WHAT WE BELIEVE OUGHT TO BE DONE. The story of Heloise and Abelard is one of the world’s most celebrated and tragic love affairs.

Butt Ugly Brand Award- Valentino Rock Studs

Gary : August 3, 2017 4:03 am : blog

Wow, a shoe line that makes ugly its calling card! Apparently, young t.v. and film actress AnnaSophia Robb has been told by certain depraved grownups that these kind of shoes are acceptable on Red Carpets! (Please, someone do an intervention on this poor young lady before she gets any more weird ideas.)

(SPECIAL NOTE: For your own well-being, if you think you’re in danger of meeting someone wearing these monstrous heels, CLICK HERE).

And shame on you Valentino Rock Studs, we imagine you kicking back in your fashion room laughing at all the impressionable young celebs you tricked into wearing these joke status heels. What next, convincing young innocent women that they should buy these in flats too?

(oh no, too late! )

RED CARPET: Who is this classy celeb? (& a story about 13 trolls)

Gary : July 5, 2017 10:19 am : blog

Anna Kendrick At “Trolls” Premiere (hawt fashion, yall)

This “Trolls” red carpet look is months and months old but we here at DGTWS never get tired giving credit where it’s due.

It seems the lovely actress of Twilight and other hit films, Anna Kendrick, is making us stop to actually notice what women put on their feet for otherwise forgettable red carpet events.

Velvet black heels with hybrid straps and open toe combo? Wow. Too hawt.

Reminds us of the Icelandic Viking tradition where children put their shoes on their window sills during the 13 days of Christmas festivities. Supposedly, a group of 13 trolls called the Yule Boys show up each night to drop treats into the kids’ shoes (or rotten potatoes for misbehaving tykes).

We would predict that Anna’s shoes would cause the trolls to fight each other for the privilege of leaving her bouquets of roses in these classy heels. Merry Christmas Anna, you’ve given our weary eyes a real present!

Exceptional People by Gary Smolker

Gary Smolker : June 29, 2017 3:30 am : blog

Exceptional People Two to Four Thousand Years Ago

Today, cranes can lift up to 20 tons.

In Roman times, Jews lifted stones in Jerusalem that weighed 600 tons, Romans lifted stones that weighed 800 tons.

Before Roman times, Egyptians lifted stones that weighed 1,000 tons.

Those people were marvelous engineers and builders.

We don’t know how they were able to lift objects that weighed so much.  

That knowledge has been lost.

Exceptional People Today 

Last night, June 27, 2012, I attended a “Cornell in Hollywood” program on “how to get ‘booked’ as an actor or writer in ‘Hollywood'” at the Writers Guild of America, 7000 West Third Street, Los Angeles, California.

One hundred forty people, including myself attended this event.

Fashion Is A Form of Immediate Communication

As I looked around a room where cheese and wine were being served, before the panel discussion began, I saw a woman taking advantage of this by wearing a pair of boots.

Compared to everyone else I saw she was an exceptional person.

What should wore made a visual impact on me.

Below is a photograph of the boots she was wearing.

I concluded that she was the most interesting woman in the room and although a panel of six successful writers, actors and actresses were there to provide their insight on what it takes to be a success in Hollywood, I anticipated that she would turn out to be one of the most exceptional if not the most exceptional person attending this event.

Getting Booked for A Role

All six panelist agreed: in Los Angeles/Hollywood, you get booked if you “look right for the part” at your audition.

The auditions are taped.

More often than not, neither the director nor the producer are present at the audition.  

They look at the tape of the audition later. 

In Los Angels, the person making the decision is not there to see you act.

The people making the decisions decide if you are who they want based on how you look.

In New York you go into your audition in jeans, its all about the work, doing something emotionally.  

Not so in Los Angeles.  

In Los Angeles you have to look good at your audition.

2017: Cannes Discourages Flats On Women

Gary : June 26, 2017 8:42 am : blog

From Variety:

Danish producer Valeria Richter made headlines Wednesday for having trouble entering Cannes’ red carpet screening of “The Sea of Trees” wearing flat shoes, despite having part of her foot amputated. Though she was ultimately allowed to attend, the festival has attempted to clarify its policy. However, it still has not explained what kind of shoes will pass muster.

Emily Blunt spoke out Tuesday about what she characterized as a ban on flats, saying, “I think everyone should wear flats, to be honest. We shouldn’t wear high heels anymore. I prefer to wear Converse sneakers.” She later walked the red carpet in sky-high stiletto sandals.

While a festival office reportedly told Screen Daily that heels were required, festival director Thierry Fremaux tweeted about the controversy Tuesday, saying heels are not part of the rules. He outlined the policy: “For the steps (red carpet), nothing has changed: Smoking (tuxedo), black tie. No mention of heels.”
