Charles Manson, alpha male (obit)

Most beta males find it difficult to get even a single woman to have sex with them, but Charles Manson was able to get a whole harem of much younger women who he could order to kill people. That’s serious alpha maleness.

These murders happened when I was a toddler, so I don’t have any personal memories of them being current news stories.

Rhinestone Cowboy

By Glen Campbell, 1936-2017

I remember when this song was overplayed on the radio.

I think he looks pretty skinny for a country singer. A modern-day country singer would be more obviously jacked up and full of muscle.

The song is actually about how the singer wants to make it big in New York City. The chorus about being a “rhinestone cowboy” is an analogy for how it will feel to be famous in the big city, it’s not literally about being a cowboy.

Even back in 1975, New York City was the place where everyone wanted to make it.

The biggest hit country song of 2016, H.O.L.Y. by Florida Georgia Line, is just a boring love song.

I think the girl in the video has more muscle than Glen Campbell. Okay, that’s a big exaggeration. But she does have a nice body compared to skinny 70s girls like Farrah Fawcett.
