Why all the spam?

Can someone please put an end to the blog spam? It's really bringing the tone of the site down. Surely something can be done about/to these parasites?

Men in Short Trousers

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jeff Jan 24. 122 Replies

I'd like some opinions on men in shorts. I basically hate 98% of all shorts. They're badly cut, badly worn and often in colours that no man in his right mind would consider in a longer version.…Continue

"Depends on the age range as well. People in my school wear basketball shorts, sandals and white socks mid-calf. It looks stupid in my opinion. Any shorts that aren't too long, short, or colorful are fine in my opinion."

What People Do In Pubs; Or, The Berlin Kneipe

Posted on January 21, 2011 at 10:19am 0 Comments

Rejoice, all ye young choiring throats, round our table rings a roundelay, hey-dey-dey-hey-dey-dey, round our table rings a roundelay. Three times three is ni-i-ine, we swig our drinks like swi-i-ine, three times three and one is ten, let’s swig another one like men – two, three, four, six, seven.
            Who is that standing at the milling-bar, the swilling-bar, the rilling-bar, who is that smiling into the smoky stink-hole? (Alfred Döblin, Berlin…

Now We Are One

It is a year since Being Manly got off the ground. I can scarcely credit the passage of time. In some ways that first blunt list of a post seems a distant historical, if not historic, event, but the subsequent discussion did lay a foundation for what was to come, and for what is still to come. I’m not much of a memorialist – Birthdays come and go without a lot of fanfare if I can help…

Man of the Year, 2010

Posted on December 10, 2010 at 7:11am 0 Comments

The calendar is close enough to its terminal date to make the announcement of the first annual Being ManlyMan of the Year. The decision process has been entirely personal and wholly undemocratic, but still it is more reliable than FIFA. The award, which conveys as much honour as its recipient would care to mention, comes with no formal prize. Nevertheless, the winner’s name will adorn this website for as long as it lasts, and I…
