The AnonymousBosch Appreciation Thread
I have an addiction, and it's time to come clean about it. More times than I probably should have, I have blown entire evenings or lunch hours reading old AnonymousBosch posts.

It's strange to say that a man with over 200 rep doesn't get enough credit around here, but since he's posting less now than he used to, some of the newer members might not be aware of the literally breath-taking levels of insight that he brings to the forum.

There are other writers at the site who are very, very smart, and who bring an amazing variety of perspectives and wisdom to us, from philosophers like Quintus Curtius to astute political observers like Lizard of Oz, but what makes Bosch special is the sheer breadth of his lived experience. Reading a Bosch post can sometimes make you questions beliefs you've held for years.

What am I talking about? Well, here's an easy example. For a man who certainly doesn't seem like a video gamer, Bosch brought some piercing insight into #Gamergate that I've never seen anyone else match. I wrote on #Gamergate topics for almost a year at Reaxxion, and he matched and exceeded every word I'd written with three or four posts he banged out while I was drunk.
Of the literally millions of words written about #Gamergate, you will find no better summary of who Anita Sarkeesian is and where she came from than these three posts tucked away in a forgotten thread on failed moviemaker Jordan Owen.

Bosch's idea of looking deeper into the past, to see the roots of the modern's left's ideas and where they came from, is something that I've never seen any author do. Jonah Goldberg tried it once, but Goldberg is an pop culture-obsessed idiot who thinks in Simpson references, and so he made a big mess of it.

Want another example? How about an explanation for why American girls are so goddamn crazy? Why do they flake so much? Why do they have those abrasive, sarcastic personalities?
There's a lot of answers, but once again, Bosch has one of the best ones, and once again it's tucked in the #255th post on a forgotten thread about an unrelated subject.

He theorizes that American girls are literally mentally dysfunctional, but in a very specific way: they have what he calls a Dismissive-Avoidant relationship style. A Dismissive-Avoidant, to hear him describe it, is someone who puts an enormous priority on avoiding hurt and rejection. They have to put up the appearance of not caring, even when they're desperate for someone to love them.

Here's how he describes some typical American girl behaviors, filtered through this lens:
- Vocal fry: you're sooooo boring. It's just soooo tedious having to talk to you. Leave me alone. Reject me.
- Independence: I don't need no man, (because he might reject me).
- Tinder and Hooking Up: the immediate physical need of sex without the risk of emotional rejection because, 'it was only a hookup anyway, they never lead to a relationship'.
-Stupid Hair, Ridiculous Tattoos and piercings: "I'll make myself deliberately unattractive to separate myself from 'normal', so everyone rejects me."

AnonymousBosch was also the first person I've seen to use the term female incel, and to describe the rise of the Sex Negative Feminist. His 4-page thread from last September, The Increasing Rise of a Sex-Negative Narrative in Australia lays out the the future of feminism in the west, and the joyless, sexless creatures it's creating, in a way that you won't see anywhere else.
All the way back in July of '14, he wrote "All the cultural signs seem to be pointing towards an oncoming shift by women into Neo-Victorian sexual prudery. I expect it to be one of the main theological splinters of feminism in the next few years - the pro-sex versus the anti-sex."


Some more choice Bosch quotes:
On why you should work out and look good, even if it takes a lot of time and effort:

Quote:"I knew an obese laywer - easily 140 kilos - in his forties who turned himself from an enormous slob to a GQ model in just two years through sheer force of will after his wife left him for another man. Dude worked like a champion and the fat just all turned to muscle, though he had to have plastic surgery to remove the excess loose skin around his waist. All the women in life were shocked at just how good-looking he turned out to be - he had a classic, strong sculptured chin under the triple one, and they all started saying he looked like Sean Connery. A few months more along, and he had a girlfriend half his age.

My dad: still works in security, built like a tank. Sixty-five. His current wife: a slim, long-haired, girly-girl at forty-two, who regularly brags at length about how much she loves her 'big, tough husband' on Facebook.

His reply? "Of course you do.""
Bosch on the Art of Conversation

Quote:"So, you ask about family and she says: "I have a sister."

You might say: "Huh, so do I. Man, we fought like cats and dogs growing up."

Then pause. It sounds like you're sharing something personal with her, but what you're really doing is suggesting an emotional framework for her response. Your statement is really just How do you feel about your sister? Was it antagonistic, like mine?
...
Now she's thinking of a loving bond with her sister, and if you lead her right you'll trigger other emotions in her: perhaps intimacy, femininity, innocence, youthfulness, nostalgia.
...
You're encouraging an emotional openness in her whilst deliberately withholding or dripfeeding her yours.
...
Enngage emotionally in the initial small talk stages, so she's primed to move into the deeper, more personal questions.
...
You'll know if you're forging intimacy this way: you'll hear some kind of "OMG, I can't believe I just told you that!" statement."

Bosch on How to Write a Rock Song
Quote:"The alpha rap attitude, done right, will make girls sexually-attracted to you.

The sensitive rock attitude, done right, will make girls sexually-obsessed with you.

Both approaches have their advantages.

It's all Game.

1) When writing a song, tap into a core emotional truth of what you're feeling.

2) Make sure the song is emotionally-dynamic: peaks of intensity and quieter valleys that mirrors the emotional unrest that exists at the core of women.

3) Now, replace every "I feel" statement with a "You feel" statement so she feels the song is actually about her, not you. Women don't want to hear about your emotions, they want to hear you reflect their emotions back to them, which makes them ascribe your deep-perception of women to being highly-experienced with them."

It's getting way too late for me to make this post any longer, but there's so much more to read and see. If you want to browse AnonymousBosch posts, you can just click here. Click to a random post and just start reading. You'll be amazed at what you find.

RE: The AnonymousBosch Appreciation Thread
Here is one of my favorite quotes of AB, so much so that I copied it to a memo on my phone.

Quote: Men built her house. They built the roads to her house. They generated the electricity that powered the house, and the infrastructure that connected it. They built the car she drives. They built the supermarket near her. They drove the trucks that stocked the shelves for her convenience. They hunted and killed the meat. They police her suburbs to keep her and her children safe, and put their lives on the line to save her home, should it catch on fire. They built the hospitals that can save her life, and the drugs to treat her injuries. Men en masse will travel to foreign shores to guarantee the security and comfort of her existence, and all she has to do to contribute is a couple of hours of housework a week, and cook a few meals, but that tiny expectation of effort to contribute to the comfort of someone else other than her narcissistic self makes her feel hard done by and 'persecuted', so she bitches about 'Mother's Day'.

I'm not bitter about women. I just understand they're fundamentally incapable of gratitude unless they develop true maturity through hardship. I know not to expect it from them, so am not disappointed or hurt by its absence, and pleasantly-surprised when it does appear. I know that when offered the world, they will grumble about how they should also have the moon. They complain to complain. The way to handle it is to simply ignore it or tell her that's what her friends are for. There is no possible correct answer that will make a woman happy when she is determined to be unhappy.

Thank you for all the great reads so far AnonymousBosch and for all of the others to come.

RE: The AnonymousBosch Appreciation Thread
One of my favorites:

http://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-45247-...#pid963608

3 am here. Just returned from a late night bang with a lot on my mind. I've no idea if this will end up making sense, but wanted to get it out of my brain before I hit the pit.

I've mentioned before a main driving force of female behaviour is the need to subsume their personality and act on pure emotional drives: to 'become' emotion itself.

Faced with having to control their behaviour when working towards a goal, their natural instinct will be to think it's 'too hard', and give in. It's the moment of 'giving in' they crave, not mastering control, because it gives them permission to indulge their vices.

You know the mantra from women: "It's so hard being good." It's why it's easy to market to them by preying on themes of indulgence, and suggesting they 'deserve it'. It's why their sexual desires are fiercer and more depraved than men.

This, not the patriarchy, is the reason for eternal female mediocrity in any field, because there is no-one who will respect a man, and carry his burden for him if he chooses to gives up. Women know they are excused from judgement, and know some stupid man will pick up their slack.

If you spend any amount of time around children playing, you'll eventually hear a girl emit a blood-curdling scream that fires up your protective instinct, only to discover they're screaming over nothing. If there's other girls around, the scream is catching, and they'll all scream. They're learning: unrestricted emotion is a thrill to them. Of course, to us, it's a sign of danger, and we come running. They learn further: unrestricted emotion gets us attention.

As they move into their early teen years, this takes on a sexualised element, and girls will gather in groups to scream, cry and tear their hair out over boys, usually celebrities and bands. They might convince themselves that they feel some deep emotional connection with some random musician on the other side of the globe who in unaware of their existence, but it is simply permission to indulge in hysterical emotion.

The Beatles once said that Beatlemania had nothing to with them: 'They were just using us as an excuse to go mad.' And they should know.

In the later teen years, and onwards this transitions into managing real relationships: relationship dramas. They get their thrill from the instability of a relationship - nothing turns a woman off quicker than stability and knowing her man adores her - and are always ready to push it to the brink of destruction to feed their voracious need for emotion drama. This is why you cultivate unstable relationships if you want to create deep obsession from a woman: they'll tell themselves it's the man, but it's just the drama they're in love with.

In the wider world, men long to build, and women to destroy, and so it goes in relationships. She gets permission to eat Hagan-Daaz and to become the sole conversational focus of her friends during the 'crisis', and some hardcore make up sex to resolve it. Once again, she learns, drama is good.

Female entertainment functions as emotional porn. 'Twilight' is just a fantasy of the hottest boy in the coolest clique in school chosing the reader substitute as his girlfriend. Groups of women quickly return to a feral state in a situation that allows them to indulge emotion: note the recent stories of women acting out watching 'Magic Mike', or glassing a man during '50 Shades Of Grey'. One of my mates is a male stripper, and the scenes I've seen women enacting in a social group at his shows are animalistic at their core. It's never about the triggering excuse, it will always be about permission to become hysteria.

That's my basic theory that I use for sexual seduction and to manage relationships. As corny as it sounds out of context, one of my tactics to create quicker intimacy is a suggestion that she doesn't seem to fit with her friends, and that they seem a bit ... straightlaced, whereas she seems more spirited.

That was the traditional growth process for women, but what happens with Millennials, when women are too socially-awkward and loathe themselves to such deep degrees that attracting a man for a relationship to provide them with the drama they need is impossible.

I wonder if this is part of the reason behind every girl suddenly coming out as a rape survivor. Their self-loathing creates a desire to be viewed as damaged by those around them, and excuses them from their lack of romantic success and emotional connection with a man. It's the same instinct that makes them hack off their hair. "I'm a (strangely-unashamed) rape victim. I am damaged: so it's not weird that I'm alone."

But this is what I was thinking tonight and I banged another idiotic 20-something girl, so hyped up her YOLO attitude that she was forward enough to be pulling out my cock in a public park at 2 in the morning, not caring who saw us, wanting to give in and become her raw sexual desire without thought for consequence or public decency, despite her fake porn star attitude and insincere gasping about needing my cock 'sooooo bad' guaranteeing that we will never truly emotionally connect, because I just wonder how she learned to perform:

What influence does the internet have on a woman's need for drama? How does it risk fundamentally-changing them?

I mentioned long ago that I suspected the cultivation of social media likes from multiple men could provide so much more positive self-affirmation and ego boosting than a relationship with any one man could ever hope provide, and, as such, connected women eventually won't desire them.

But tonight, expanding on that thought, what if Millennial women have become damaged even further by connectivity?

What if one man can no longer provide their need for emotional drama either? What if women aren't going to be drawn to relationships because there's always a hysterical group of schoolyard girls screaming online, offering her a chance to join in and get a sweet, sweet spike of raw fury? To cry 'literal tears' and to share the outrage with everyone in her circle so everyone cries with her. Where women are screaming for the sake of screaming, of being outraged to be outraged, to become anger and fury and the community of voices making the drama so much more intense and every tiny imagined slight and offense into the goddamn end of the world until they have no emotional setting left but 'nuclear', because they're trained themselves out of realistic levels of emotion, the same way they seem to have no setting anymore between raging slut and outraged prude.

Then I noticed just how consistently ugly the screaming women always are, and could only come to the most likely conclusion: Social Justice isn't their cause: it's simply a boyfriend substitute.

Man, I'd better get some sleep.

In case this is the fact of the matter:

Remember McCoy, whenever you wonder what a woman wants, the answer is simply more.

The moment you give into a woman's demands is the moment you lose her forever, because:

- She'll never stop demanding more.

- She'll learn to despise your need to please her instead of standing your ground.

- She needs a man who doesn't entertain her bullshit and makes her feel sexually-submissive.

If you give in now, eventually she'll seek this submissive feeling from another man, and won't feel any guilt about cheating on you, because she "isn't happpppppy".

Lose her now, or lose her then. At least if it's now you'll have your self-respect and your nuts.

You can ignore the reality of the situation, but this is exactly how it has played out for every 'nice guy' I've known over the 44 years of my life: the wife takes any children involved and runs off with a biker, or a drug dealer, or an older, traditionally-masculine man, and the guy doesn't see it coming, I mean, she kept telling him she wanted a 'nice guy'.

Hell, I'm seeing this play out in three men I know at the moment:

- A bodybuilder with a hamplanet of a girlfriend who has gradually taken ever single outside interest away from him, and is now starting on his bodybuilding. Their relationship gets more embarrassing and negative to be exposed to by the day. Even though he's built like a tank, his niceness and acquiescence would already have her justifying her eventual affair in her head.

- A die-hard Liberal American friend whose wife of 20 years just ran off with a Poor Masculine Musician, leaving him with both kids, despite him doing everything she wanted, they voted correctly, went and rebuilt homes in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and he was always so socially-concerned and caring for others. His arms were the size of my wrists, her new fling is jacked.

- A biker mate - tough looking, but, man, just a really nice guy, you know? His wife ran off with a drug dealer, leaving him with their 5-year-old daughter. The next woman he shacks up with turns out to be both obese and a prostitute, and recently-decided that she 'doesn't want to give up the work' because 'she needs the money', and 'doesn't feel any pleasure from it.' If he doesn't stand firm, the same shit will happen again. (I simply said "She could always get a job.")

There's no surving marriage I know out of the 12 guys I went to school with. Why? All of them were Nice.

An example of a strong marriage. At dinner the other night, the couple were talking about heath issues as they age:

Girly-girl wife: "If [Alpha Husband] was ever gone, I don't know how I'd gone on."

All the women offer sympathy.

Alpha Husband: (shrug) "... I'd have a new girlfriend a week later." *smirk*

Her: "Oh My god!" (lightly hits him)

The Nice Guys all looked absolutely-horrified, and later talked amongst themselves about what an arsehole he is and how she's so nice, (meaning still slim and pretty for her age, and feminine as hell without being so sexist as to actually say it), and that he doesn't deserve her. They fail to realise this sort of behaviour is why she absolutely adores him after 20 years of marriage, and why they have children and still have a regular, happy sex life. (When I told her that male semen has anti-depressant properties in unprotected vaginal sex, she giggled like she was being really naughty and said "I guess that's why life with [husband] is always so good").

So, McCoy, respecting yourself as a man is more important than the prettiest pussy in the world. Tell her no.

If the girl in question is reading: Be quiet, men are talking.

But damn, the first story is indeed brutal. Intense lesson that would be lost on many.

Far and away, one of the all-time greats. I can even read his most somber, intense reflections on the state of things and come away feeling galvanized, in that "I need to do my fucking part" kind of way. (And when my subconscious is whispering of "taking an extra rest day" all I need is one good Bosch post.)

AB has mentioned this before, but I thought I'd remind us so we appreciate this quality about him: he received no formal training as a writer. Everything you read - the mordant wit, the grammatical equipoise, the flow of the writing - it all came from him. And the result is probably one of the most distinct and immediately recognizable voices to appear on the forum.

In a time where, as men, we are increasingly unsure of whose counsel we can trust, men of AB's integrity and self-possession are all too rare. I deeply appreciate his insights and continued involvement with RVF.

RE: The AnonymousBosch Appreciation Thread
Anonymous Bosch is one of the most incredible posters here. His social observations manage to be dead-on, scorching, and funny, all at the same time. His stuff is so pungent that it will make your eyebrows singe. One of us really should be saving his mini-disquisitions on male-female dynamics, social commentary, and the state of masculinity.

Like a Hieronymous Bosch painting, the picture that emerges is a dark world of weird characters, tormented souls, and bizarre monsters. (Which, in a way, is what a lot of modern life is like these days!).

(And I mean that as a compliment!)

Not only that, but I've spoken to him many times, and can say that he really is an old-school guy, the type that is very hard to find. He has firmly-held notions of honor and loyalty (like we all should have), and does not take kindly to nonsense and bullshit.

Much respect, AB.

He is one of those rare men who offers you good advice, rater than merely telling you nostalgia stories; he has done so for me several times over PM, and I regularly check his profile to see if there's anything new.

Incidentally I finished that movie
; didn't dig at all into McIntosh's background (he's not a feminist - he just wants to use feminism to destabilize the culture), but the end result is nonetheless a good introduction to the culture war.

One of my favorite posters. It's a shame he is in Australia, the USA women would absolutely love him "oh say that again!" with his attitude and accent. But his game is lost on all of the obese bogan women in Australia.

Or is it really not that bad in Oz?

RE: The AnonymousBosch Appreciation Thread
I like Snowplow have also copied an AB quote on to my phone. This man is pure genius. And from what others have said about him the physique matches the mind. A true Renaisance man.

Quote:Try being White.

If I see colour, I'm racist.

If I don't see colour, I'm racist.

If I don't try to help, I'm racist.

If I do try to help, I'm still racist because it's never enough.

If I don't give money, I'm racist.

If I give money, I'm still racist, because I'm not giving enough.

If I don't try to elevate you, I'm racist.

If I do try to elevate you, I'm racist for expecting effort on your part or gratitude rather than entitlement.

There is no winning condition where I'm not always accused of being racist.

This is how identity politics divides us, and makes community and brotherhood between us impossible. I used to think it was, but with the ever-increasing rise of Social Justice since 2008, I've thrown in the towel. It's all just bullshit accusations to grab for power and make others your little dancing puppets, and I can see right through it.

I'm cursed with Original Sin - despite being very underprivileged in my youth - and no matter where I turn throughout my life, it's Religious White People telling me I'm a Bad Person for not being Catholic; Privileged White Girls telling me I'm a Bad Person for being Male; Bitter Lesbians and Trannies telling me I'm a Bad Person for being heterosexual; Obviously-Racist Minorities telling me I'm a Bad Person for Not Being A Minority; and Wealthy White University Liberals telling me I'm a Bad Person for not being a Socialist.

As such, as politely as I can put this: fuck you. My patience with this victimhood bullshit is at an end.

RE: The AnonymousBosch Appreciation Thread
I'm not afraid to say I love Anonymous Bosch also, I could spend hours going through all his posts and still not fully process all the wisdom held within. I think he was the first person I ever repped on the forum, as he just immediately clubbed me with his brilliance and made me sit up and really think about the world around me from a different perspective.

I just read this quote, and like all his pearls of wisdom he takes an issue that was previously so complex to me (such as Diversity) and in just a few simple sentences he distills it to it's essence and then illuminates the truth of the matter almost effortlessly.

"Now, note the focus on Adding Diversity: this is a beloved tactic of Marxist Agents Of Change. Diversity creates conflict, and the Agent of Change then steps in as a mediator to resolve the conflict by reaching an outcome they’d already predetermined before creating the conflict. Diversity is the means by which they achieve power. As such, most Authoritarian Marxists would recognise Sarkeesian as one of their own, and willingly support and champion her."

Mindblown

The way AB understands the mind is almost unparalleled, he must be at least Doctorate level in clinical psychology, because i've met a few psychologists and counselors, and from what I can tell he mentally runs circles around just about all of the people who do that sort of thing professionally.

I know I fell extremely lucky and fortunate just to be in a community with geniuses like him on our side, and to be able to interact and learn from him (and so many other brilliant minds here) is truly an honor for myself and many more of us i'm sure.

RE: The AnonymousBosch Appreciation Thread
When I open a random chick in a bar with either, "I'm betting you're a Sanders (or Trump) (or Bernie) supporter." - and I'm right practically every time, do you know who taught me that? Anonymous Bosch.

When I'm fairly accurately predicting the plot of a film or TV series I haven't seen, do you know who taught me that? AnonymousBosch.

When I'm having a crappy day, and thinking of sinking into a much longer depression, do you know whom I fear disappointing the most? Tokyo Joe, actually, but AnonymousBosch is a close second.

When I'm squatting or bench pressing to absolute failure, but I've this smile on my face, do you know who I'm smiling at? AnonymousBosch.

When I'm reading yet another shitty stunt pulled by the Ted Cruz campaign, do you know who makes me feel like it's going to work out just fine? AnonymousBosch.

When I've decided to stop watching a beloved television series because of its degenerate social messages, do you know who taught me to spot those messages in the first place? AnonymousBosch.

Just like Canopus, I, also feel extremely motivated reading anything he's written.

Thank you.

Not only does AB provide consistent quality in his posts, but I've also found him very friendly and approachable over PM if you have specific questions about things that he's talked about. He's been very helpful to me on a few occasions. Definitely one of my "must read" posters here. Cheers AB.

RE: The AnonymousBosch Appreciation Thread
This whole thread is another treasure trove, to delve a bit deeper into the great man's insights.

Thankyou.

I think for me, the greatest thing I take from AB's posts, is the fact that despite his size and training or whatever (not too familiar with the ins and outs of it), he is obviously one very extremely dangerous motherfucker.

The fact he can probably handle himself in a bar fight is neither her nor there. It's the fact that if you pissed him off, and even if you were bigger than him, and had ten mates to back you up, he would still find a way to bring you down.

The best part is, he's not even a psycho! The man has human compassion pouring out of his otherwise (and I hope this won't be taken the wrong way here) lizard like gills.

This restores my faith in humanity.

Usually, when men are so sharp and quick witted, or so obviously superior in the warrior stakes, they exude a kind of superiority, which can quickly bleed in to taking advantage of those not so ordained.

I get no sense of that from AB.

Here is a man wrestling with himself. And winning. Another winner. Beaten, battered, bruised, maybe. I don't know. AB always keeps that bit of himself back, maintaining the mystery. Not for mystique's sake, I don't think, or even for persec, just, because...

I've never seen the guy pull rank. I've never seen him get angry or even flustered. I have however seen him sometimes, not respond at all, and for that, I think he is the wiser man. He is measured, considered and well balanced.

These are just my impressions and may be very wrong.

Anyway, every AB post is a treat. I'm going to go back and read some of the posts suggested in this thread. Thanks OP for the search link.

.............


I worded that really poorly, but aw shucks, I think AB is just the bestest, I can't even...

Kudos.

He's my all time favourite poster, out of any manosphere site, even more than Pook whom I learned a great deal from. It's a great privilege for us to have him posting on RVF.

I only wish he'd run for PM here some day, to #MakeAustraliaGreatAgain

RE: The AnonymousBosch Appreciation Thread
My INTJ nature means I'm naturally-uncomfortable with attention, whilst, unfortunately for me, generating it through my thoughts and actions, so, whilst I was hoping I could escape one of these threads, I'm both honoured and humbled to hear people say I've helped them. Thank you.

Don't ever think I have it all figured out. I'm just a Bloke who has his own insecurities and dysfunctions making his way through an increasingly-bizarre world, like you all are. Sometimes I triumph, sometimes I faceplant, but I recognise that even failure offers clarity, and, thus potential for growth, which I see as the point of our journey.

As such, don't ever think you don't offer me wisdom or clarity in return through reading your posts - particularly as the nature of the political and sexual climate threatens to make us deeply-bitter or to lose our core humanity. It might be something as small and seemingly-unnoticed as Glaucon saying "Why are we celebrating drama like women?"; Sharkie discussing his desire to show a human act of empathy to a dying friend; or ThoughtGypsy defending another member who was currently being piled-upon. It's frustrating to see such fundamentally-decent men being so undervalued by society, but your words and actions make me strive to be a better man based upon traditional masculine values.

Thank you, all. Live free, stand strong, and love deeply. You will endure.

You must have missed the 'Roosh is in jail!' thread. I lost a lot of face with a non-forum member I deeply-respected over that one.

One guy said "How could AB even know where Roosh was?" You mean the previous threads leading up to that one where his stalker was discussed, including the nightclubs Roosh was at?

This is the danger of faking a crisis with an INTJ: we try to immediately solve it, meaning that I missed the - obvious - contextual clues in the original picture that he was joking.

It's funny, in retrospect.

RE: The AnonymousBosch Appreciation Thread
I've always admired Bosch's humility (further evidenced by his response in this thread). He's obviously a guy who can talk the talk and walk the walk many times over, and run circles both physically and mentally around the vast majority of men. But he always comes across as humble, patient and generous in sharing his insight here on the forum. Most men would be insufferable if they were even half as talented as Bosch. He possesses that rare combination of traits that the ancients rated as being the hallmark of great men: true nobility of character and a first class mind. They don't make many like him anymore. We're very fortunate to have him here.

RE: The AnonymousBosch Appreciation Thread
Quote:Bosch on How to Write a Rock Song

The alpha rap attitude, done right, will make girls sexually-attracted to you.

The sensitive rock attitude, done right, will make girls sexually-obsessed with you.


I was glad to see this post brought up in the OP because it's the kind of AB post that might easily get overlooked, but that is immensely characteristic of his virtues as a poster -- especially the quote above (italics are mine).

That post is a superb example of how AB will begin with a rather large statement that might not convince on it own, but then derives through the post that follows a kind of proof of his assertion -- and bases it on his actual experience and practice.

He's a master of threading detailed examples through a kind of rhetorical narrative, which takes you from the seeming abstraction of what he says about rock and rap to a vision of an adolescent AB figuring out as he grows up why Chris Isaak never made it big with the ladies, and how trivial it was when finally did -- then further down into a yet lower circle of hell where you are appalled by Andy Partridge's emulsion of BETA -- and finally lets you off with the easy grace of a Picard facepalm that reinforces the rhetorical point without another word needing to be said.

This narrative structure that meanders through the vagaries of textured and lived experience to arrive at its destination with every one of its conclusions secured by the end is at the heart of AB's unique voice and contribution. It's great to have him around.

same old shit, sixes and sevens Shaft...
