Pascal








Today, I was supposed to meet Tai at The Dive. This 28-year-old Chinese-American makes $60,000 a year as an engineer in Trenton but lives with his parents in South Philly. Though Tai went to a state school, he still pays $1,000 a month in student loan and he claims this prevents him from having a place of his own. I wanted to hear more about Tai's life, but the man didn't show up, so I ended up having a very fascinating conversation with Pascal instead. I will try to build a Postcard around Pascal.

Pascal has a blog, Dirty Frenchman, with only one entry so far. This is its introduction:

"Dirty Frenchman aka Pascal was born in 1965 in France and moved to the US in 1989 to escape the French Police, the street life and drugs.

Pascal has been working as: a sex worker, photographer, musician, cameraman, plumber, waiter, bartender, set designer, prop designer, costume designer, bondage master, actor, art restoration, social worker, heating technician, driver, radio and club DJ, music producer, master craftsman, guilder, painter, etc…

Dirty Frenchman his a bohemian, he traveled at early age and lived in many European cities doing things most people would not do to survive. He always had an appetite for new and out the ordinary experiences.

Today Dirty Frenchman is considered has a pervert from most of the people he talks to. He dislikes fake boobs, American porn, meat heads and women without natural smell. He love to eat and sodomize a nice hairy butt hole. He does not have one-night stand anymore and try to really appreciate intimate moments at his best. He is ready to experience more debauchery and exiting adventures.

So if you need a friend, a lover, a teacher, a master or simply you need answers, you can drop him a line."

Philly has better bars than Cleveland. I'm jealous.

Hi Elizabeth,

Philly has many more divey neighborhood bars per square mile than NYC, Washington, Chicago, Boston and San Francisco, that's for sure.
