Saxon replied to Sean's discussion So, what do you sing? in the group Manly Singers
"Like you, I am a baritenor, with emphasis on the tenor. My singing range is C#2-E5, but my comfort range is narrower (currently roughly G2-G4). I like the "singing" styles of singing, the styles that focus upon the actual art of song. That…"

Sean replied to Christian Schmidt's discussion The Word "Manly" Is A Burden
"Manly is not a burden, it is an honour and a privilege. Only you can give it to yourself, and only you can take it away. Look, we all get stuck dealing with this at some point. Is it manly to do this or manly to do that, but if you are looking for…"

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

Sean replied to Jon D's discussion Making a Living by Audio or Written Word

Sean replied to Steve Dallas's discussion Bully
"Exactly. When I was a kid, I seldom saw a pure bully or a pure bullied. It was just a bunch of kids who were treated badly by some kids, and then treated other kids badly in turn. If all these kids get labelled bullies, the term has no meaning,…"

Sean replied to Steve Dallas's discussion Bully
"^This.  The term is being overused.  Calling damn near every interaction out there a form of bullying is a distraction from the very real cases that do occur."

Christmas in the Workshop

Posted on December 19, 2011 at 7:19am 0 Comments

I am not one of Santa's elves, but at this time of year I do a reasonable impression.

This year, I am making a couple of hope chests for my daughters.

My insanity plea, update,

Posted on April 12, 2011 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

A little over a year ago I posted about one of my ongoing woodworking projects-a homemade pipe organ.  I thought I would drop in an update:  I have finally completed the pipes, all four hundred and change of them,  for the keyboard.  I am now left with a decision:  Should I build fifty pipes for the pedal argan, or should I leave it keyboard only?  The pedal organ pipes would be the largest, and at… Continue

It's Shakespeare Day!

Posted on April 23, 2010 at 7:30am 8 Comments

Today is the 446th anniversary of the date traditionally assigned to Shakespeare’s birth. It is also the 396th anniversary of his death, but people being what they are, we tend to look upon the birthday rather than the deathday aspect of the matter, thus, perhaps, play some lip service to the long acclaimed notion of the ever-living, immortal bard.

But why do I speak of Shakespeare, the man from Stratford, and his life and death, when many believe that he did not, could not, in any… Continue

Lessons in Manliness

Posted on March 22, 2010 at 11:30am 1 Comment

My father. Born in Hamilton in 1922, died in Mississauga in 1996. In the almost three quarters of a century that he lived, he saw the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, the Second World War, the Post War Boom, the Cold War, the end of the Cold War. At the beginning of his life, cars were a luxury, and carts pulled by horses still rumbled regularly through the streets of Hamilton. The sound of an aeroplane flying overhead was enough to make people run out of their houses and look up. He…

Thanks. I figure a guy who takes time to welcome random people to a web community he's not in charge of is probably a guy worth knowing.

The Art of Warriorness

Just as Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War,” has been applied to many different aspects of modern life; I believe there are many great lessons to be learned from all of the warriors and warrior societies, from SEALS to Samurais, and Spetsnaz to Spartans.
