About RobFather X

G E 'RobFather X' Robinson, Sr., is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and a retired U.S. Navy veteran. He is currently a resident of Saginaw, Michigan. Writer, blogger, father, teacher, confidant (and sometimes freelance computer repair tech), RobFather X (or simply “RobFather”) describes himself as the typical free-thinking person; a man who is confident in himself – specifically as a Black American male, and secure in his masculinity. He simply lives life on the completely non-religious, psychological, emotional, and sometimes sexual levels. Intelligent, educated and "old school" street-smart, RobFather maintains a “take-charge/no-bullshit” attitude, often supported by his occasionally tactful, no "political correctness" type of personality. He is often perceived as "always serious" but people who get to know him quickly discover those traits are equally balanced with a laid-back demeanor, a cool swagger, and witty sense of humor. On his blog, 'Real Time' (formerly 'Keepin’ It…REAL!'), RobFather tries to keep it as honest, real, and “on the level” from his point of view and personal experience regarding various subjects of life and other issues which some people would rather whisper about. Check out his mindset at the ‘Real Time’ blog link: (www.robfatherxkeepinitreal.com). RobFather has worked in the field of military [U.S. Navy] telecommunications from 1979 to 1999 and has been in media broadcasting for more than seventeen years, totally his combined communications experience to roughly thirty-seven (37) years. His experience in media broadcasting includes work in both AM and FM public and commercial broadcast radio as an announcer, radio personality/disc jockey, audio producer, programmer, board operator and assistant radio traffic coordinator, as well as work as a news copywriter, sales account executive, radio engineering assistant, with some work experience in television broadcast production. RobFather holds a degree in Electronic Media Broadcasting and is currently seeking a degree in Criminal Justice at Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) in Saginaw, Michigan. RobFather is single. He enjoys music of all genres, a good game of chess, spending time with his son, reading, blogging, naturism, traveling, discussing social and/or political issues and simply having good intelligent conversation over a cold beer or wine with quality friends and acquaintances.

RobFather and Jose Cuervo

I’ve been making the attempt to get over my shyness factor when it comes to creating and posting video “selfies”. It’s a slow process but I’m getting there. I’ve already produced and posted two or three video shorts to my Facebook page in the last several months. If memory serves, I think the video posted here is the first of its kind of myself that’s been published on this blog.

 


This video short was taken Sunday morning (1:30 am) August 27, 2017.
For the hearing impaired, here’s what I am saying in the video:
 I just finished off my only bottle of Jose Cuervo’s Tequila Gold and will be buying another bottle today. When I’m drafting/writing a blog article (or just writing long things in general to express my feelings about a particular subject matter), I often have my bottle of Jose Cuervo Tequila Gold (aka JC) and a shot glass sitting on my desk. I take a few (sometimes several) shots of JC during the two or three hours I might spend writing. Tequila (or rum, my other favorite beverage) relaxes me and helps get my creative writing juices flowing. In the video, I show a bottle of Patrón Tequila Silver as my “backup” tequila beverage. I further explain: I normally save Patron for special occasions like, birthdays celebrations, when I’ve had a great day at work, or when doing shots with a sex partner. A bottle of Patrón costs much more than Jose Cuervo which is why I don’t drink that as often.

Praise for a Simple [Space] Experiment

First, watch this video:
*All credit to Col. Chris Hadfield and the Canadian Space Agency

Simply Awesome!! Well, at least I thought it was!
Such experiments conducted in a zero-gravity environment – whether that environment is artificially created on Earth or is genuine in outer space and, no matter how “silly” or a “waste of time or tax-payer money” naysayers think such experiment may be, are uniquely educational and instrumental to technical scientists, medical scientists and engineers. Such experiments help scientists and engineers learn how to develop new or better technologies, medicines, and cures for mankind; at the very least, such experiments help those scientists and engineers improve upon the tech and medicines we already have. Much of the tech, medicines, and cures we now have would not have been possible had there been no space travel and no space experiments to begin with. Think about it!

Sometimes the simplest of things, many of which we take for granted, have to be performed in completely nonideal or unorthodox environments or situations in order to get certain results and/or to teach us different, if not better ways to approach or find viable solutions to particular problems.

I may not have as high of an IQ as scientists and engineers, nor may not understand much of anything math-related beyond basic math (I still find algebra difficult to do and pointless for my daily living) but I’m smart and wise enough to realize, understand, and appreciate space missions and space experiments, and to support the work done by astronauts from Earth – regardless of their country of origin/nationality; that is, so long as their work is for the specifically peaceful and useful benefit of all mankind and other lifeforms which exist here on Earth.

RobFather X in a Smooth Groove

I hardly take video selfies but, when I do, I have to make sure that such videos will make me smile, otherwise I won’t post nor share them with anyone. (It’s the shyness factor in me.)
So yeah folks, this is me at work today [Sunday, August 20, 2017], doing my radio show. I’m grooving to one of my favorite tracks from the American R&B (rhythm and blues) and jazz-funk fusion band/group, The Blackbyrds. The song is Soft and Easy from their 1977 album, ‘Action(Click the song title or this You Tube link to listen to the entire song.)

Staying cool…by any means sexy!

Chillaxin'-71 (how to stay cool)

Face it: it’s hot as fuck somewhere on this globe…perhaps even where you are!
What better way for you to chillax, cool off, and stay cool and sexy than by stepping naked in a public park’s water cascade?
(You can deal with any police-given citation for public nudity later!) 😎
