It’s the weekend! That means giving love to fellow bloggers and webmasters around the ‘net. Here are some of the great posts and articles I found this week, along with my completely subjective reviews:
Natural Stacking part 1 and part 2 by DJ Fuji, a PUA with Mehow.tv. There’s a lot of back and forth among the various pickup companies about “stacking,” or using canned routines, versus using a natural, spontaneous approach. Mehow is an advocate of having a very tight stack, and after reading these two articles I’m sold. They liken it to a speech that a professional speaker would rehearse before speaking to an audience, or perhaps like a comedy routine that a comedian would practice before doing the standup. This makes a lot of sense. If you’re a serious pickup artist, you’re essentially a professional at marketing yourself…why not have a script or stack that you know back and forth? It removes a lot of the variables from a pickup and frees you up to be spontaneous and creative later in the interaction. Both articles are well written, concise, and easy to understand.
