Should I Stay or Should I Go, Damon?

I did consider for a moment making my friend, Damon, a Dish of the Day (he's cute enough, don't you think?). But then I thought that might embarrass him, so instead I'm just going to blog about him and his new book, Absolutely Should-less: The Secret to Living the Stress-Free Life You Deserve. Damon is a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist in New York, and his self-help book is about recognizing, understanding and eliminating the destructive "shoulds" in your life that keep you from feeling good about yourself (i.e. I should lose weight, I should make more money, etc.). He's also a contributor as a Soap Shrink for the soap opera website, Marlena De Lacroix, which recently featured a review of his book (click here to read it).

Damon is, of course, busy promoting Absolutely Should-less, which brought him to Chicago this weekend for an appearance on the fabulous GLBT podcast, Feast of Fools, with its hosts, real-life gay couple Fausto Fernós and Marc Felion. Their show is a sassy chatfest of odd news, social trends and celebrity interviews--with folks like Damon, who was their guest last night. In the YouTube clip below, Fernós and Felion ask Damon to watch and comment on an odd (to say the least) video called "One Guy One Cup", which apparently is all the rage on the Internet. Personally, I have no desire to see a man put a glass up his butt and have it break inside of him. Just doesn't sound like my cup of tea, so don't worry, I won't post it on here. However, I found Damon's reaction to it quite amusing--but I think glass in the ass is a definite should not.

For more information on Damon and his book, go to his Absolutely Should-less website. You can also buy his book on Amazon. And to listen to Damon's Feast of Fools podcast, click here.

wow, i watched this because it looked like this guy's book would be kind of interesting. But after watching him snicker at some sort of disgusting porn/gore video, I think I'll pass.

Well, the YouTube video has nothing to do with Damon's book. If you want to hear him discuss "Absolutely Should-less", you should check out the actual podcast on the Feast of Fools site tomorrow (Tuesday). As for him snickering at the weird video, he was just goofing around with the two hosts. Apparently taping people's reactions to the video is quite common now. So, Anonymous, I think you should give the boy a break and lighten up a little.
