Hey, gidday mates. On Thursday last week I was using my laptop, minding my own business, when all of a sudden my mouse pointer started flying all over the screen, and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get it to go back to normal. I took it into my local repair shop and apparently my hard-drive, hard-drive cable and touchpad had all failed in one fell swoop. So for the past weekend I’ve been forcing my lovely young Airbnb houseguest Sam to let me use his computer. Thanks, Sam! The other thing I’ve been doing is DJing nonstop with Jenny at this great new club named Never Never on 14th Street. A ton of the music I play to chill out before we open up the doors is perfect summer road trip material, so with that in mind, next time you’re in the car heading to the beach, throw this on and think of me sitting in front of my laptop with a perplexed look on my face as my cursor flies — unprompted — across the screen. And laugh. Or don’t.Click to Continue!
Anon asks: Hey Isaac! I have a little dilemma with guys. It seems to be a constant thing rather than just a typical ‘dry spell’ that I guess every girl goes through. I’m a model, in my early twenties, and most guys would say they find me very attractive in an unconventional way. It seems I do get this good feedback a lot and do have guys that will make contact via Facebook etc, but barely any will actually pursue me seriously. Is there something wrong with me maybe? Help!

Anon asks: Hiya Isaac. I recently slept with one of my best friends. It would have been fine, but he went out with another girl a few days later (which had been planned for a while and I already knew about) and they are now pretty much together (except he doesn’t want a serious relationship). I don’t regret sleeping with him, and we both know there are no feelings involved so the friendship is still intact. Which leads to my question why did he sleep with me?
Hey, gidday mate. I’ve gotta be honest, something about your question doesn’t make 100% sense to me. Do you really have no feelings for this guy? I detect a bit of a bitter tone in your words. No?Click to Continue!
Maison Kitsune has a new brick and mortar location in NYC, on the quietly cool stretch of Rivington (between Chrystie and the Bowery) in the Lower East Side. Fellow retailers on the block include Green Fingers (which shares its backyard garden with Kitsune), Freeman’s Sporting Club, and Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream, meaning it’s fast becoming the ideal hang spot for anybody looking for a moment’s break from the traffic, the humidity and the noise so prevalent in the city this time of year. Moti Ankari and I paid the store a visit last Friday, and couldn’t leave without trying on some clothes; I’ve been reading my old Ivy League style books nonstop recently, and my number one takeaway has been cuffed pants with white socks, canvas sneakers and a button-down… See below.Click to Continue!
Anon asks: Dear Isaac, I find myself in a peculiar place. After nearly a year and a half of marathon dating (Tinder, OkCupid, Coffee Meets Bagel — you name it, I tried it), I took stock of what I wanted VS needed and I can say with complete confidence that I do not know what I want or what I need. Beyond dating disasters, I’m not happy at my job and I think the stress of it all has taken its toll. Have you experienced Dating Burnout?
Hey, gidday mate. I don’t know that I’d call this situation Dating Burnout, it kinda just sounds like temporary life dissatisfaction. If you don’t know what you want or need from a romantic perspective, why not stop exerting so much energy in that direction, and redirect it to more worthy pursuits like getting a job you actually like and enjoying yourself with your friends. As far as I can tell, relationships are supposed to be the icing on the cake, they’re not supposed to be the entire cake. If you’re not happy in yourself you are never going to be happy in a relationship, so work on yourself first, and the rest can come later!Click to Continue!
