Renaissance man Glenn O’ Brien takes us through his new book How to be a Man (Rizzoli) and reveals the details on some of his private collection of works from Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Tom Sachs.

    “You can tell more about a guy by his home then by his clothes.” Greatness.

    We all about art, we all about private collections of art. But from our viewpoint the art is in the streets, and its being riddled and ruined with bullet holes.

    Being a ‘man’ means getting your balls back and learning how to stand up to women–something most guys can’t do today.

    “…no, I’m gonna wear my Steelers Jersey”. Black and yellow black and yellow, lol! Book seems like it would be interesting just to see where Glenn’s brain goes on the subject, but I think you can’t learn to be a man via books and mags. Becoming a man is a process of refining one’s individuality over time, and the self-confidence to express it. I’m digging how he’s got Warhols on one wall, and skateboards on another.

    A wise man talks less and says more and in the end All men grow old, just a few grow up, and even fewer grow wise.From those fewer that grow wise treats his woman as a princess in proof that he has been born and raised in the arms of a Queen.

    Being a man should be about “knowing how to be one” instead expecting women to always make you feel superior. To expect that of a woman helps to make you less of a man than you already are. Either you know how to be a man or you will never become one.

    Being a man means “knowing how to be one” and not expecting women to stroke his ego. If you don’t know how to be a man, stop trying so hard because you fail miserably every time. Learn to be a man by treating women as “equals” not as “stepping stones.” She has to make that climb too but much harder than you. Instead of pushing her back to be your background, how about helping her up to join you in the cause. Be a man and not an ego-”man”-iac!

    Zulema, I think you said it right. Right on. That’s a real man.
    Glen O’Brien’s wit and humor should be great in this book. People like this are who keep this world interesting and evolving in the right direction.

    -Thanks Glen
