So some people out there don’t care for me…
That’s right? And some of you will say to that, who gives a flying f..k. That’s fair. But it may be of interest to others, so here’s the real dope:
When you climb out of the fishbowl, some of the other fish are going to get pissed off.
People tend to like others who mirror themselves and the way they see things or live their lives. Those kind of folks think they’re right and others are wrong. They have their point.
But when you fight the aging process and are winning to a certain extent, you can make fast enemies.
Add to that a high profile public presence and, ‘Oh brother’ now you’re an asshole.
When we’re in our teens we get this: "What the hell do you know? You’ll see how tough the world is when you get older."
Then as we hit our mid 20s it’s, "Ah, you’re still too young. We can’t take you too seriously yet. You don’t have enough life experience."
Am I right?
Then at say age 35, now we’re talking, "OK, time to have kids, be responsible, buy a home, get into debt, just like everybody else. It’s time to grow up."
Now here’s where it gets crappy…
At age 45 it’s, "Man you look good for your age, are you still married? I don’t remember, do you have children? How’s your career going?"
All of a sudden you’re guilty of becoming OLD.
Men’s hair thins or goes. Your belly sticks out, no more muscle – if there ever was any. No more going out late, unless with the Mrs. Make sure you go see your kid’s basketball game on Saturday Night.
And don’t even ask about age 55 or older, that’s twice as bad.
For women, it’s worse!
They get there even quicker. After 30, they’re treated like it’s all DOWNHILL from there.
None of this is fair. Aging is now, and always has been, a crime. Yet everyone is saving for the future, making plans for the retirement, planning for what comes next.
The younger set – and there always is one – views folks over 40 as out of it, dumb shits too old to be cool.
But sometimes a few people don’t accept this routine. I’m of them.
As I’ve aged, I decided to stay as young as I could by living a young man’s life. Staying fit, keeping my hair looking good and being around younger men and women so I knew their feelings and lingo. Their music, the way they dress.
If it fit, I did it. If it didn’t, I stayed with what makes me comfortable.
Hey, in my mid 50’s it’s worked so far. So my contemporaries don’t like it, because they can’t do that stuff. It’s as simple as that. To them it’s always, "Why is he dating those young girls? He must pay them." Or, "Who wants those skanks, whores, strippers and dumbbells?"
The truth is, they’re hard to get with just your presence. It’s something up until now that I can still do. Remember, when I’m in LA and before that, lived there, they didn’t know what Stanford and Sons even was! Or is.
So brother, you’re on your own. You can’t drive that Porsche into the club!
So it’s about staying young. Add in that I play the somewhat likable villain and wallah! I’m an easy target to hate.
It takes lots of work to stay inside the game as you age. You see it with some Hollywood stars and athletes but not too many.
I know, people will say, "Glazer, we don’t like you because you’re a jerk, or criminal,etc…"
First off, those who say that likely never knew me. It’s really more like, "Who does that guy think he is with that lifestyle."
There are tricks to this trade.
Believe it or not, going to prison helped. I lost nearly five great years of my life, from age 29-34. So I wanted to gain them back. I learned to workout daily. Older inmates gave me some inside scoop on keeping my skin tight and without wrinkles by using Vaseline Intensive Care daily on my face, leaving it on in morning and evening.
Hey, it worked.
And ladies like bodies with muscle, so I worked on that. Still do.
Keeping your sex drive high, means hormones and testosterone which is legal and paid for by Blue Cross.
Ups your sex drive, helps build muscle and no, it’s not bad for you – it’s good for you if not overused. I get a shot once a week. Now before you put that down, check it out. Women get hormone shots, why shouldn’t men?
It works and well.
Even HGH is good if done correctly and given to you legally by a doctor, depending on your medical history. All these things add to youth and looks. If you are in shape, you can dress younger and look more upbeat. That helps. Also the way we talk and look at things is important. So you have to be around young people to understand where they’re coming from.
These are just some of the things you can do to stay young.
Nobody beats the clock, but you can slow it down. It takes effort, but it’s worth it. It really is. I’m not the only one who works on these angles.
Life is not a dress rehearsal, you only get to do this once, so make it last and have some god damn fun!!!
