Going Forward… Into The Drain

I’m bored with the blog. After three years and ~1,175 posts, I feel like I’m rehashing the same shit over and over again, and I don’t want to do that thing where I would grab a news article and give my opinion about it. So I may blog a little bit less and try other things.

Also…

1. I think I want to go back to bartending part-time. I’m looking for a room to rent somewhere around Dupont / Adams Morgan / Columbia Heights. If you know anything in the $550-650/month range then please let me know. I don’t care if it’s a closet. The suburbs are sucking the life out of me.

2. I’m ready to start writing a book about my trip to South America. Maybe it will be something short and in the form of an e-book, but I definitely want to share what really happened down there (i.e. which flags I accumulated). And I don’t want to take a year to do it, like I did with Bang. Speaking of Bang I came up with a genius slogan: More Lays In 60 Days. It rhymes.

3. I bought the Flip Ultra video camcorder. I’m going to play around it and see if I can do anything interesting with video besides amateur porn.

4. I’m going to move some of my straight-up “how to get laid” advice off the blog into my game newsletter, which I plan on sending more than once a month. Putting things I still use on a web page that is one Google click away is making my life more complicated and awkward than it needs to be.

Next month I’m off to Las Vegas for a week with midget porn lover Virgle Kent (below). Sure it’s a cliche 20-something American vacation, but I have to see for myself what the fuss is about.

Here is the first post-South America Roosh photo. The anal beads I got from Brazil is making a strong impact to my style.

Noooooo…. no less blogging, please. Lucky me that I submit my thesis this Friday and thus will need less excuses to procrastinate.

On a separate note, I believe you used to criticise small studios in the Dupont area as being “matchboxes” or something like that, but I think it’s a great move for you. I miss that part of DC so much…

And the suburbs are depressing…

Maybe in Gaithersburg. I don’t even think you can find rooms in a shitty group house in those areas for those prices.

Getting blog-blocked is happening way to much for me (a 4 month long blogger). I can’t imagine the effect it has on a noted DC blogger who willingly gives his uncommon name and photo. Good luck

Vegas trip almost sounds like a April fools joke considering the money you wont want to spend….even if you don’t gamble.

A sudden shift?

Now that I think about it, you are trying to move out, going to vegas, bought a camcorder …… doesn’t sound like the Roosh I know….is money not an object anymore? Did you hit a lottery?

All I know is two things must happen for me to consider Vegas the for real for real….

1. I must kill a hooker
2. Two I must find a woman who will let me tie her up to the bed and take a dump on her chest…..

If these things do not happen Vegas is a bust. 1 should be easy. I might need a little help with 2.

Virgle, #2 shouldn’t be too hard to do here. If you’re tired of being shit on by those DC chicks, just FYI things are different here.

yeah, Vegas is a place you go once so you can stop wondering about what the fuss is like. I used to live in southern california and went a few times. The people you’re with can make it fun, but the town itself is not so great.

Also, I got your email; been swamped with stuff but going to get back to it shortly.

Lonnie, is Gaithersburg a shitty, low-income part of MD? I’m not familiar with the area and met a chick in DC who is from Gaithersburg. She seemed educated, high middle class, but curious on what the area is like. I find a lot of trends can be learned / assumed from people, especially women, based on the type of neighbourhood they live in.

Pls fill a new MD resident in.

If I knew of a $550-650/mo place in Dupont, Adams Morgan, I’d rent it out myself… and turn it around, sublet it for $1600/mo. I’d even market it with “walk to Metro” even if it weren’t (yah, walk a mile to Metro).

Yeah, I gotta second people here on rents – even columbia heights is going to be out of range there. You might get lucky in Petworth. Still, I’ll keep an ear out for rooms in group houses around the hood. I take it you’re looking for just a pied a terre.

Roosh! I am apartment searching in the same area…The best I have seen is 750 in dupont to share a 5 bedroom house with a hippie, a bartender, an NGO employee and a vegan….have fun!If I get a place you can live in my closet for 650 a month, they said I can have any size dog I want.

Gaithersburg is actually pretty upscale. It’s in northern Montgomery County, a pretty rich and very suburban area. Think tree-covered streets and old houses on pretty big lots.

RE: Gaithersburg

Some parts are nice…some parts are really shitty.

Its not a posh suburb like Potomac or a lot of Rockville and its not a cute, fun expensive semi-city like Bethesda…its just your average, normal suburb.

And the reason people referenced it as not so nice wasn’t because its a bad area… but because it is so far from the city compared to other DC burbs hence less expensive than those other burbs or the city itself.

$550-650 is too cheap, unless you want to live in a flophouse in Woodbridge. (I’m from the Bridge, trust me, this is NOT what you want.)

VK, remember that most hotels have a maximum of 3 dead hookers per visit.

Roosh, you can find a decent apartment to rent at $550 per month in Silver Spring, splitting the rent with 2 other roommates………….

…………..four years ago.

I’ve said this a million times – move out of DC. A new city will breathe new life in you. Oh, and rent is cheap in Houston. Paying only $750/mo in one of the most expensive neighborhood and great 900 sq ft apartment with an outdoor pool and hot tub. Not trying to brag, but just trying to show that there is life past the Appalachian mountains.

Agnostic–Rockville is nowhere near as nice as Potomac or Bethesda but you would be surprised at how many nice areas have been built up there.

Its gotten to the point that its even called “North Bethesda” in half of the town to coincide the name with the area as it is now.

Yet again, I would not choose to live in any of those areas…DC or bust.

yeah, you can get an awesome place in san diego for $1000-$1200 on your own, or in the $500’s with roommates.

I just looked at CL’s renting for the areas you were talking about.. I thought no way could they be that high, and I’m dumbfounded. wow. DC’s renting market is ridiculously expensive.

dude, all these commenters telling you you can’t find a room for ~$600 in the U st-dupont-admo triangle are full of it. i know three people who got rooms in sweet rowhomes on 16th and 17th, T and S streets. the rooms are out there, you just have to be willing to live with multiple roommates, share everything, and hide the cracks in the walls with posters. for your lifestyle location trumps amenities.

Actually, there’s a room opening up in my house (Adam’s Morgan) for $585. Not suggesting you move in, because we’re looking for a girl, but I’m just sayin’ there’s hope.

RE: DC rents. Let’s put it this way: I just moved out of my one bedroom apartment in Adams Morgan that’d I’d been living in for over eight years (good ridance). I moved in Jan 2000 and the landlord kept my rent the same at $1,250 the whole time. Now the landlord rented it to someone else for $1,900.

What city are you living in? I guess if he’s unemployed he might qualify for public housing, but otherwise $600 apartments are few and far between.

Cheap group house rooms exist, sure, but first you have to pass the open house meet ‘n greet test, then you have to actually live with all those other people. And even group houses are getting expensive. Plus utilities.

My rent is pretty cheap, and I have my own place, so I know that cheap rent can be found. But I don’t exactly live in a hip neighborhood (which is fine by me).
