Area51Lifesyle.com has been covering Mystery, described by the New York Times as the worlds greatest pick-up artists, for the last couple of years…
…Now I’ve decided to expand the investigation to the New York Times best seller, The Game, by Neil Strauss (Aka Style in the pick-up artist, or PUA, community.)
I met Neil early in 2006 though I helped out a bit on his Annihilation Method launch with online marketing guru Frank Kern and Matt Kadish, who goes by the pseudonyms Joesph Matthews and Thundercat.
Here’s the story:
In the summer of 2004 I stumbled across the whole “pick-up artist” community because I was on a west coast tour with John Reese (another online marketing guru) and Eben Pagan, (Aka David DeAngelo of Double Your Dating) invited John to join him at an event he was putting on for his dating advice customers.
John and I got the opportunity to peek behind the scenes of the PUA world and what we learned was astonishing!
We learned that there was a secret society of pick-up artists, but that the word was getting out and thousands of guys were flocking to guys like Mystery, the PUA that many, including the New York Times, describe as the greatest in the world amongst all the Pick-up artists.
By coincidence John and I were seated with Mystery at the end of the VIP table where he regaled us with pick-up artist strategies and stories from his shocking life experience.
We didn’t meet Neil at that time, but we were walking through his world around a year before he would publish “The Game” which would become a New York Times best seller.
John and I ended up at Project Hollywood, the house that Neil was living at the time.
An old Rat Pack mansion, Project Hollywood was Mystery’s brainchild, the ultimate bachelor pad tucked behind Mel’s Diner (from the 80s TV show, Alice) and Saddleranch, which is a “chop house” and singles scene.
John and I were hanging out with Craig Clemens, who would become part of the character Grimble in The Game and Mystery when we went over to Saddle Ranch and watched Mystery in action.
Now I’ve heard a lot of guys talk a big game when it comes to picking up girls, but Mystery did exactly what he said he would do, which is attract the interest of a very pretty young woman.
But what was more astonishing was how Mystery “called his shot” before hand, describing nearly exactly how things would happen.
That incident ended up leading to a chain of events where I would meet, become friends with and work with Neil Strauss.
Next: Saddle ranch and the Annihilation Method.
It’s all happening,
