Hi there! I am a 46 year old man from Norway who has been struck by the realization that there are more boys than men out there, even at my age! I was also struck by the realization that my own…Continue
"As a lecturer, I find it far less disturbing to my students if I discretely look at my watch than if I pick up my mobile phone to check the time.
Aside from that, a watch and a ring are more or less the only manly jewellery, so wear your watch with…"
"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…"
