Meet the Author

I live in Toronto, Ontario (Canada for those who don't know) and I'm probably the second funniest person I know, but I'm the funniest person I know who has the time to write a weekly column. I like roller coasters and I'm scared of a zombie apocalypse.


I was born in West Philadelphia where I was also raised and I spent most of my days playing basketball at the local playground. One day, these guys who were making trouble in my living area confronted me and I got into a fight. As a result, my mom got scared and sent me off to live with my Uncle and Aunt in Bel-Air.

    Half right

    This book is about nothing but it's not hysterically funny. It isn't even mildly amusing. It is a bunch of lame and tired musings, much like we all engage in when bored. Nothing special but also pretty harmless.

    Bros & Hoes in Prose

    One of the essays in "Bros & Hoes in Prose" starts, "welcome to the first and last installment of Relationship Advice from a Guy who's Never Been in a Relationship." (It turns out this isn't really the last installment, since we get the "next installment" later in the book.) After reading the first several essays, I can't say I'm surprised. This assumes Pastukhov is serious about never being in a relationship, which might be a faulty assumption. And therein lies my main problem with this book.

    The best and edgiest comedy requires walking a tightrope. It often means holding a mirror up to a segment of society to show its flaws in a humorous way through exaggeration and caricature. My sense is that is what Pastukhov is attempting in the first several essays in a section called, "The (un)Fairer Sex: How to get women. Also, how to get rid of them." The first essay in this section, 3 Women You Should Date, compares three different female types along with the pros and cons of dating each. The descriptions of the three types of females with the pros and cons were humorous and mostly managed the balancing act for me. However, I found the setup, starting with the "how to get them ." subtitle of this section to his describing the first essay as "product reviews for pu**y," too much. I felt it went over the line, from humorous to misogynistic. Even when the author moves from women to other subjects in later sections, this feeling kept popping up in other ways.

    Although I found many places in "Bros & Hoes in Prose" that made me smile and some that made me laugh, as was promised in the description, I also found too many that pissed me off. I guess this means I need to watch MTV to find out which cookie-cutter mold applies to me. I do suspect a narrow demographic segment, maybe certain college age males, would love this book. One positive is it is free on Smashwords for those who want to see for themselves.

    **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

    Nice

    It was a nice essay, but he shouldn't have ripped on baseball so much, I mean its only a sport for players. Why not rip on golf instead?

    The Broship of the Ring--Part the Third + comments on the comments.

    Comments on the Comments: PIPPIN IS A BOY: Not anymore. XDDD but really, in out lotr rp located at "nz" second result, Pippin has been g<_>enderswapped. Also: To everyone who' s a strict lotr fan and doesn't like to see dramatic changes to the story: Too bad. I'm making a ton. Character application: I'll see if I can fit her in!! <p>
    Back to the story: <p>
    Gandalf, needless to say, was not there the next saturday. The Hobbits even waited an extra day just to make sure e didn't get in traffic. But he did not show up. So the four hobbits began packing up their favorite belongings, clothes, and food for the walk, and they set off towards the small tourist attraction town of Bree. <br>
    The walk was mostly uneventful, so I'll spare you having to read through my long discription of the terrain, at least until they got to the forest. Bree was surrounded by a thick forest, and there was only one road into or out of it. As the four began to follow yhe road, they heard the loud RRRNNNNRRNNNRNN of a motorcycle coming down the road fro Bree, straight towards them. Frodo watched it until the last possible second, when he was pushed by Sam into the side of the road, along with Pippin and Merry, and they tumbled into a bush. <br>
    The motorcycle stopped exactly where they'd been standing. It's rider got off. He was tall, and thin, and was wearing a black sweatshirt with its hood covering his face. The Hobbits caught their breath as they saw the back of it when he turned around. It had a red eye symbol, and a number 5 below it. The hobbits all lay completely still, not daring to move a muscle. He pulled out a gps and stood there looking at something on the screen. <br>
    It was getting late. The Nazgul had not moved one inch, and the Hobbits were starting to get sore, when Pippin had an idea. She scooped up a small rock, and chucked it as far as she could while lying down in the direction that they came. The Nazgul instantly looked in that direction. Merry, catching on, threw another rock in the same direction, causing the Nazgul to get on his motorcycle and drive over there. Instantly, the hobbits scrambled to their feet and ran as fast as they could in the general direction of Bree. However, by general unspoken agreement, they did not take the road, instead running into the dense forest of Buckland county. <p>
    This one was a lot shorter than the others so far, and less serious. But Spoiler: Prepare for Bombadil!! Peace out.
