D.J. Uses Them - Do You?
Susan Lee
What Susan Lee SHOULD Look Like

My friend, Susan Lee, is NOT Chinese.

She’s actually a pale round-eye from Cincinnati with blonde hair who doesn’t know the difference between Mandarin and Cantonese.

Despite how she actually has a southern-style American name, I have decided to continually poke fun of her for having a Chinese name. READ MORE

New Year, New Strategy, New Stories – Same D.J.

I have taken an unusually long hiatus in updating this site.   There are a few reasons for this, which I will touch on briefly…

  1. I started my own company, and also went to work for my friend’s company simultaneously.
  2. My wife sadly decided to end our marriage, and filed for divorce.
  3. I joined a band, and we play live twice a week.
  4. I ran out of good stories.

Well, that last one isn’t true.   I have a TON of good, true stories of stuff that has happened to me.

But around August, when I was framing the outline to “The Girl With the Tiny Vagina” (a non-sexual story, surprisingly), I realized that I wasn’t entirely thrilled with what I was doing here on ThoughtsFromParis. READ MORE

AdultSituations – Carlton Loves P**n

Remember watching HBO when you were a kid, and when an R rated movie came on like Angel Heart or Hardbodies 2, you sat with eager anticipation of the warnings that would display right before the film started?  As a boy, the best I could hope for was “nudity.”     Although, often times, if there wasn’t nudity in a movie, there still might be “adult situations.”  This usually meant that there was some dialog in the movie pertaining to sex.  Good enough.

Wendy's Can Eat It! (Since I Can't Eat There)

This is in poor taste, because he's dead.

About a year ago I participated in a men’s weekend retreat out in the country.   About 15 participants and 13 facilitators gathered together for three days of serious work with the intent of exploring truth, shadows, and learning how to be a better man.   It was intense and emotional, and I saw dudes explore rage, shame, fear and sadness, as well as joy.

Celebtweets – Jackie Stallone

Jackie Stallone



I love Jackie Stallone.

If you’re not familiar with Jackie, she’s movie superstar Sylvester Stallone’s mom.   The first time I became aware of her was around 2000 when she appeared the Howard Stern E! show.   She’s a tough-as-nails broad with confidence and tenacity.   But a lot of people have those qualities and I’m not easily impressed with bravado.   Why I fell in love with Jackie Stallone was the reason she was ON the Howard Stern show.

The Big Racist Glass Head

Not the retarded janitor

I have this friend, Arnie Becker.

Okay, truth be told I don’t really have a friend named Arnie Becker, but for this story I feel I should change the names, as to not embarrass the real people involved.   But, if you really want to know who I’m talking about, just ask me.   I have a feeling I’ll tell you. READ MORE
