a train wreck: the eric schaeffer story

hours of entertainment contained in this post, if you have the time...
 
so gawker stumbled upon this guy eric who actually has a book and a blog about how incredulous it is that he's still single. the blog is aptly named, " i can't believe i'm still single." the guy is CLEARLY one of the larger douchebags currently residing in new york city. so gawker posts to say, " hey, we have a guess as to why you're still single, you douchebag! " that post " opened a monster can of douchebait" and several women proceeded to write in with their eric schaeffer dating horror (and i really mean horror ) stories. the gawker eds went through his book. found a girl who was stalking him and blogged about it on myspace (he has a profile, btw). he just flew out to charleston to meet some 25 year old (he's 45) that he met on the internet and gawker readers found her on myspace too.
 
those have spawned other blogs to try to collect all the stories and ES drama in one dedicated place.
 
so the tool finally responded. saying, basically, "i'm rubber, you're glue." but he did it in a profoundly idiotic and very lengthy diatribe.
 
 
and he really, really can't believe he's still single?! seriously?! THIS, people, is why trying to find a sane man in nyc is nearly impossible.
 
in other news...blogs have been blocked at work so i can't comment during the day. don't take it personally. poo.

I totally remember when this dude was a filmmaker. My LIFE'S IN TURNAROUND got him some praise way back in the day. Then he made IF LUCY FELL... which sucked. I saw some of the one after that. Suckier yet.

And could he be any more in love with his own words?

Reading parts his blog, I feel like I might have evolved into a sort of human ploygraph. Every other sentence, my brain was telling me "Lie. That's a lie. Another lie."

Suddenly Carrie Bradshaw gives normal a WHOLE new definition, and ES is the COMPLETE opposite. Not saying that Carrie was ever a "nutjob", but OCD, yes...

who is this guy? and I do have to say that it's quite fun and entertaining to watch his ego inflate and deflate as it does...

Where's the next article? This is HILARIOUS!

I'm sorry, but I am hooked on this guy. Not because he's charming or witty or insightful. Oh no. Because he's so completely oblivious to what his issues really are. Nothing makes me want to punch someone in the groin more than preachy spirituality. His "one with the universe" crap is a cover. It's what he uses to try and prove that he's "good" and all of us self-aware, non-clingy, non-stalking people are "bad." And he's so into his Yoga class, his time for meditation, he respects and loves it so much...that he uses that same class to meet women. I;m sorry, this guy and his ilk (both men and women) irk me to no end. It's everyone else that's at fault and they're the ones on the path to enlightenment.
