Hello, my name is Stephen, and I have taken the plunge into joining an on-line community for the first time in a while. I think I will prefer to read rather than write, but we'll see.

The Manly Art of Expertise: Part I -- What is an Expert?

Posted on April 26, 2010 at 6:46pm 2 Comments

Every direction a modern gentleman turns, he is bombarded by the opinions of "experts". These "experts" guide his decisions with endorsements of products, lifestyle suggestions, politics, money, medicine, and any other part of a man's life. Many go along through life listening to the "experts" rather casually, adopting some suggestions, ignoring others. But frequently, these "experts" lack credentials, are paid off sponsors, are opining in a field beyond their knowledge, or outright lying to… Continue

The Art of Fine Dining

Posted on January 30, 2010 at 9:17pm 0 Comments

At some point in your life as a scholar and a gentleman, you will be called upon to pick a fine eating establishment. Maybe your friend is getting married, and you're a groomsman, or you and your boss are going out to celebrate a project you just finished, or maybe you're about to pop the question to that certain someone. With all the options, and with the associated expense of all of them, finding the right place with the right atmosphere and the proper price range can be daunting. Luckily,… Continue

Operation Tidy Up

Posted on January 28, 2010 at 8:48pm 1 Comment

My cubicle is a mess. The papasan chair in my bedroom is used a repository for sweaters, pants, and power cables. The floor is a bookshelf on its own. There is a large stack of shipping boxes under my desk, which is itself covered in old papers, electronics that no longer work, and forms I should have mailed three months ago. I have kitchen knives still in the package on the floor of my bedroom because my kitchen is so unorganized.



Enough is enough. February I begin Operation Tidy… Continue

The Importance of Proper Dress

Posted on January 26, 2010 at 11:46pm 4 Comments

After my Junior year in college, I took a job as a tutor for a private tutoring company. At the time, I had hair that ran halfway down my back, and that is no exaggeration. It wasn't nappy, greasy, or covered in split ends; in fact it was rather well-kept. For this new job, I had to lop it all off, and keep it above the collar.



I had spent many years getting my hair that long, it was a project I had taken some pride in. But I was also in college, and wanted to get a semi-professional… Continue

Hi there Stephen. Welcome to AoM. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my relatively new group, The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you aboard.

Also, Stephen I noticed in your profile that among other things, you're into photography. We now have an AoM Photography Group, and its membership is growing all the time. Last summer, we held our first AoM Photo Contest. It was lots of fun, and a huge success! Want to join? The only requirement is that you love photography.

"Definitely. Just part of my yearly physical. If men want to live long, productive lives, they need to be proactive. That's how things can be caught while they're still treatable. Denial can be one of the dumb aspects of the male ego."

This is a GSRM (Gender Sexual Romantic Minorities or LGBTQ+) group.  But And straight men and cis-men are encouraged to join as well.However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled.  The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities.  This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered.  And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.Debate…See More
