I've decided that my circle of guy friends needs a higher dose of manliness on a somewhat regular basis. I was talking with an aquaintance during a concert recently (yeah, it was that good) and we…Continue
"My friends and I do exactly what you are suggesting.
We like to have a nice bite to eat and a drink or two,
often someone will bring a liquor (or liquer) that is new to everyone.
After eating and a pipe or cigar on the deck we head to…"
"I have, and regularly use both. I use my DEs on weekdays and my straights on the weekend. The straight is capable of giving me a BBS (baby's butt smooth) shave like nothing else can. It just longer to carry out than a DE, which is why I reserve…"
"Matthew, I would suggest joining the forum over at www.straightrazorplace.com and buying one professionally honed by a reputable member. You'll spend about half the cost of the Dovo and probably get a nicer razor. No offense to Mark's…"
"I went through many a tub full of Murray's in my greaser days. The easiest way to get it out is to use dishwashing liquid. Just grab the Palmolive from under the kitchen sink and lather up as if it were shampoo. It might take a few repeats (and…"
"Do you mind sharing what kind of strop you got? Some strops need work while others are ready to go out of the box.
If you have a Russian cowhide strop (has a nappy, rough texture) then you have a lot of work to do in order to smooth the leather so…"
"That is awesome! Congrats on one heck of a first gun! You can't go wrong with a good revolver. Just remember that owning a firearm is a big responsibilty, but I can tell you're already taking it very seriously.
Just out of curiosity, not…"
"I think gentleman's night is a brilliant idea. A friend and I were just talking on a camping trip about how the time spent hanging out with other men has lately become a passive activity, and how we wanted something like a men's night on a…"
"well one got called into work, and the other just forgot...but me and the one other guy who came had some good conversation, we talked about some of jack vettriano's paintings, and some of the stuff that was on the news (we were seated right…"
"My buddy and I had a 'Guy Weekend' this past weekend at his house outside of Philly. Our other friend (my roommate) was supposed to go but backed out. Here's what we did:
- Went to some boxing matches in South Philly Friday night and…"
"I would leave out the laptops. We're plugged in all day every day these days. We need a place to get away from that. Also, the TV's, I would place behind one way glass to hide them and only turn them on during fight night (and only for…"
"The institution of The Man Club at El Cerrito High School came on a cool winter night in 2005. At our friend's annual black-tie cocktail party (we were sophomores and juniors in high school), there were four young men who wanted to watch the…"
"That looks pretty close to what I was thinking. Hey, I could be Clint Eastwood :~)
Homeland security would be kinda disappointed to find my phone hanging out in a holster.
I'm not so sure about leather tucked under an armpit. Anyone here wear a…"
"Personally I would much rather watch the gecko than Flo. The gecko is funny at least. Flo is just "everywhere" to the point of obnoxious.
What I don't like about Geico, is that it stands for Government Employees Insurance Company.…"
"I see what you are saying about FB, but the gym, those mirrors are essential.
Yes, checking form is important, but I use them for one more thing.
To me the gym is more mind game than anything else, and visualization is an important part of that. In…"
"I totally get your desire, and yes, those images really support the site character.
Glad you took the critique positively, establishing a unique identity online when so much has been "done" already, is very difficult, and a manly…"
"I agree that working on something is critical. Part of growing in manliness is feeling accepted into the world of men (you). Also, I would try to point to the manliness of Christ. There is an old book by Thomas Hughes from 1887 called The Manliness…"
"Thanks Carl and I definitely accept the feedback! I certainly don't want to be AoM and try to stand out as much as I can while still being in the same vein of ideas. The things that differentiate Wolf and Iron from AoM will likely present…"
