Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: Mr. Pokeylope: Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: airsupport: And none of the women shave or nor trim their copious furburgers, as was the style of the time.

I live in a house where I work six days a week and still have to cook, do the related shopping, do the laundry, manage homework/bathtime/bedtime, take care of the yard and vehicle maintenance... and I still have to listen to her biatch because the house is a wreck.

I'd take a 50's chick with a bush any day after dealing with the end result of women's lib for the past decade.

/it's not like she trims her bush either
//sometimes I get lucky and she'll at least do her legs
///sad face

It's called D-I-V-O-R-C-E. Or you're going to eventually have one of these.

Eh, the love is there, but I do have a list of "things that I'm not necessarily happy about, but ultimately aren't worth destroying my family over".

The older I get, the more value I find in things like whiskey and mistresses.


Oh yeah. I love Internet idiots who scour the site looking for an excuse to cheat on their wives. Hang in there.

I went to a Rockabilly club once. It was great. Fun bands and great people. Love Horton Heat the Cramps etc.

You can keep your top 40 bro joints.

One of the biggest rockabilly fans I know is black (Hi Mike!).

dopekitty74: This is a culture I would gladly embrace fully. I love the esthetic, and miss the sturdiness of things of yore. I also enjoy campy, kitcshy fashion and furniture. Yardsales are a great source for finding such wondrous items :).

/i also like the music, but am also a metalhead, hope that wouldn't disqualify me.
//don't want a caddy though, i'll take a classic T-bird thx.


You're fine, as long as you're not a Death Metal Guy.

There is awesome rockabilly in the Midwest. At least there was when I was in Columbus. Favorite local trio was Th' Flyin' Saucers.

Nah, death metal not really my thing, though I don't mind a bit of Slayer once in a while.

Meh, I've already got three times the excuses that most guys that are already cheating have. What I lack at this point is the time, energy and patience to deal with another woman in my life. That's where the whiskey comes into play.

A former high school girlfriend got into a weird combination of Rockabilly, crappy tattoos, and zombies.  Think of the worst way all 3 could be combined and she has it in spades.  As I look back on life getting away from that was probably one of the better decisions I made.
