I have no explanation for it, so I'll just post up what happened.
I recently joined Reddit for wicked edge and things have been going well. I have been able to get more blades for free, samples of shave soaps, and tonw of great advice, even some directly from leisureguy and mantic59.
One of the soaps I have gotten is Light Foot's Pine Shave Soap. I love how the package smells so I thought I would make a batch of…Continue

If you lived through the 90s and were old enough to grow facial hair, chances are, you wore a wrap-around mustache/beard combination and you probably called it a goatee. You might be shocked to know that in the modern era, this facial hair style, mistakenly called a goatee, is actually a 400 year old Flemish (Dutch) style called a Van Dyke.
Author, Victoria Sherrow, explains both types of facial hair in her historical study of appearance in For…Continue
I have been pressed, in the interest of context, to provide the text of a speech I delivered in the recent past. Below the is the transcript of said speech. Judge how you will.
President [redacted], Speaker [redacted], Justice [redacted], and my fellow Senators:
I am up here today to speak to you about the formation of a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning group at the University of Notre Dame. I want to say, first of all and for…Continue

I came to The Art of Manliness only a couple of months ago, and after some navigation I came across the series on King, Warrior, Magician, Lover and decided my life in general could use a manly boost. I have some very good friends that I decided to share these articles with and after reading them, one of them got together with me and decided that we would take on, what sounds like, a simple task together: becoming better men.…Continue

A lot has happened in the past year.. one year ago today I was in the lowest place I can imagine, watching my marriage fail in a way I was unable to stop. In the year since then I have found I am better for having endured it, to have rised above it and made my life even better. The last 12 months have been full of almost conostant change of one form or another. At times it even felt like I was stuck on a roller coaster, and I had no idea if it would take me where I wanted to go. Thankfully…Continue

I ... would not recommend. I had to be up early Saturday morning so I got up even earlier to shave. Went well, as it was the second shave of my first Derby Extra Super Stainless blade. I also had an early start Sunday, but even earlier. To shave the day of, I would have had to get up at 3:30 AM and I wasn't about to do that. So I thought I would shave the night before.
Bad idea. It was pleasant enough at the time. Not my closest shave, not even the closest shave of the day. But as I…Continue
In my previous post about March Madness, I shared an interesting bracket-style contest that Pringles launched. Even though you have to vote according to the bracket, you can still browse the videos. Below is an interesting and very funny one I thought…Continue

It's hard to escape March Madness, especially when just about every brand is doing a bracket tournament.
But here's an interesting spin on it, Pringles got fans involved early and sent a "call out" for fans to create web videos on which Pringles flavor is their favorite. The videos have been narrowed down by Pringles to 16, and now it's up to us to vote!
Head over to …

What ever happened to Mortal Kombat Legacy? I liked these web series. It followed the storyline of Mortal Kombat and mixed in some "real world" elements to accompany the fantasy aspect. Anyone have news on it?

You don't have to be a gamer to know about The Walking Dead. It's everywhere, from TV and news stories.
The series stars the Andrew Lincoln as Sheriff's Deputy Rick Grimes who wakes up after being in acoma to find the world dominated by "walkers", resembling the zombies. He finds solace in a group of survivors outside of Atlanta.

My inspiration for this post comes from the Friends of the Library Old Book sale that happens here every Spring. I'm pretty sure I have heard that it is one of- if not the- biggest book sales in the southeastern US. This year is significant because it is in a new, bigger site. It happens over four days and I usually visit at least two or three times, to give myself the best chance of not missing something I would love.
I love books. Some of my earliest memories are of my mom reading…Continue
Preface: I’ve decided to share some of the notes I write when I go on my walks. Mostly these are musings and observations I have about life in general. For this one in particular, I guess you should know that I am only 17 and not yet a father in any capacity of the word, so maybe you should take what I say with a grain of salt.
A Father is the first and foremost teacher to his children. It’s his responsibility to teach his children the little life lessons,…
I would never be a teacher. I always knew this. I come from a long line of teachers, you see. I know how difficult it is. The relatively low pay; the high stress level- these were things I was aware of because my mom is a teacher. Additionally, I like the idea of a job I can go to every day and leave it at work when I go home. None of these things apply to the teaching profession.
My mom suggested a few times during my time as an undergraduate that I study education. She had…Continue
Last week, Davy Jones' sudden death prompted a post about his life as an entertainer, and his life as a short man. Today, the focus is on tall men - their cultural psychology, how women feel about them, and medical problems they can face.
I know a lot of women like tall men. Our society has a thing about…Continue

Got My Merkur, like I said in the last blog post. Tried it out this morning.
It's a great razor. It's way smoother a shave than I thought it would be, with my only previous experience being the GEM I used before.
I used it with one of the Derby blades from Mitch. Thanks for sending those. In this razor they are a little mild for me. I'll give it another shave or two to make sure, and to try to get…Continue
A little while back, and I haven't mentioned this online so you wouldn't have known, but a huge hail storm passed through. Everyone in town was getting a new roof. Ours was so old that it didn't appear to even be a little damaged by it. However, after a friend looked at it and had the suggestion to get it looked at by the insurance people, we did. They said we qualified for some roof replacement money.
So about three days ago the roof replacement started. I have friends that have done…Continue

This is a copy and paste from my Wordpress blog, which you can find at jedennard.com.
I thought I would devote one of my first blog posts ever to a subject that is near and dear to me. I have a birth defect called Spina Bifida (SB). In my case, it is a malformation of the spinal cord where the nerves around the spinal cord fail to connect to the right places. This results in muscle and nerve damage to the spine and spreads throughout the body. I am able to walk as a result of…Continue
