"I actually started a blog myself about a year ago, mainly it's fiction, but due to time constraints I have deviated to writing reviews from time to time. Of course I designed it as a sort of magazine, basing it on old pulp magazines and…"

The Art of Manliness Comes To Mexico

This post has a purpose and it is to congratulate Brett and Kate for the success of "The Art Of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man" and to tell everyone that the Spanish version has appeared on bookstores in Mexico. I came across the book by coincidence when I went looking for some books in English at a bookstore. One of my brothers was with me and excitedly told him and showed him the book. I was very happy seeing it and the best part is that it has become a promotional…See More

New Year Reflexions.

Posted on December 31, 2010 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

It is 12:10 P.M. New Years Eve here in Mexico City and a new year will be coming in 11 hours and 50 minutes. As 2010 ends and 2011 begins, I am reminded that not only is a new year is begining, but also de second decade of the XXI century. It is truly amazing how fast ten years have passed and how quickly this new century is progressing, although we were told things would be different in the world of the future, that future is now our present and things haven't changed much. Sure technology…

Thoughts on marriage

Posted on December 9, 2010 at 9:08pm 1 Comment

Sometimes it's pretty hard to find a topic to blog about, but recently I came across a TV show here in Mexico that caught my attention. It talked about how many women today don't want to marry, which struck as a bit of a coincidence, since not so long ago I had read an article in a newspaper that said men, in Mexico, were now more in favor of marriage and children, than women were. It stated that men prefer having children because we, men, see it as a way to continue to spread our genetic…

Roberto Carrillo Diaz Barriga (my grandfather) Febuary 2, 1910- September 11, 2010

Posted on September 11, 2010 at 3:19pm 2 Comments

Not so long ago I wrote about my grandfather, well it is a sad day today for my family and me as he passed away at 9:00 AM CST. After living 100 years 7 months and 9 days the day I dreaded, yet was mentally prepared for, has happened. Mind you I am not sad or grieving, but happy as he will now be rejoined with my grandmother. He lived a good and very long life and he will continue to live through the my generation and the next and the next. It will be very strange not to have him around… Continue

A New Year's thought.

Posted on December 31, 2009 at 7:18pm 0 Comments

As the year is about to come to a close it is unavoidable that I, and perhaps all of us, should reflect of the past year's events. For a lot of us it wasn't an easy year as a world economic crisis hit us all and recovery is slow, yet I feel that in ending the year we shouldn't think of all the negative things that have ocurred, but to think of all the good that the year brought us. To Mexicans this is the day of giving thanks to all the blessings we recived in the year and, as in the rest of… Continue

Hola Chilango,

Welcome to Man Bags!

Start a discussion promoting your favorite every day carry item. I assure you, you’ll find other people in the group who are like-minded. Not a fan of Saddleback designs, no problem.
