"Art of Shaving must have given out like 10 for new email people. Really, though, this kit is worth it to just go ahead and buy, in my opinion. Four years ago, one of my roommates gave me his that he had gotten for being in a wedding. I still use the…"
"Good find, Craig. Thanks, I'll keep trying.

"Well gentlemen, I just christened my Merkur Classic Safety Razor on my second day of using C.O. Bigelow shaving soap and a badger hair brush.
Immediately noticeable was how much closer the safety razor gets than the cartridge razor, as I nearly…"
"Thanks, Brett! :) Just wanted to let you know how much I love the site. My wife is thinking about launching an "Art of Femininity" or "Art of Womanliness" site, she's very impressed with the fact that your site got me to…"
"What a great story, Brett. :)

Sports (golf, NFL and college football, baseball), Music (singing, playing, writing, listening), Spending time with my beautiful wife and children.
Anything by C.S. Lewis or J.R.R. Tolkien. The wife is halfway through ravenously reading the second book in the Twilight series, I'm hoping she doesn't get me hooked on those like she did the Harry Potter books!
Oh, several. We usually watch comedies (both rom-com and the standard variety, Mel Brooks is a god among men) or action/adventures. Not into horror.
Anything and everything that takes talent. Power chords and screaming or rapping do absolutely nothing for me. Classic rock is my standard, though. I sing in a group called The Classics. http://shootingstarclassics.com

But I would agree with the "driven" aspect. You have to want to do it, and be willing to…"
"This was touched upon by a few respondents.
How detailed do you get as far as the 'fashion' goes? Do you account for culture(s), locale, skin type, age, financial status, or any other factors other than what is trendy in a subset of…"
You may have an interest in those things but do you have the talent? My nephew wanted very much to be an NBA basketball player. However, he didn't have the talent for such. It's tough but it happens.…"
"Really if you want to be strong, learn statistics to the point you can teach it. Most people have a weakness with stats and it will give you an edge. Any particular software will be replaced but the foundations of why and how will carry…"
