Brother McKay - Anything you can do on the blog to revitalize the official AoM book club? Great idea but starting to fade. I just joined today, hoping to find a vital community but not much happening there.
Been following your site for a while, decided to join the Community recently. Noticed you also have a section on Careers, and recently did a podcast with John Corcoran about reaching influencers.
I am also finishing a guide for people looking to get ahead in life, it's got a ton of powerful "hacks" that not a lot of people are talking about yet. It can save a lot of time for job seekers, headhunters etc and can also be applied for entrepreneurs.
I think your audience could find many of them useful in their business/life/work.
Would you be interested in taking a look at it, and tell me what you think?
I really like most of your articles and even more — so I've already translated one of them into russian (talkin' about Adrian Peter Shmidt and his odd exercises).
So my question is: can I place my translation of your article at FurFur.me? This is the popular russian web-issue about men's way of life in the modern city. And don't worry, I promise to put the active link of original article below or even above the translation!
I think you guys doing the great things and I want to share it with the russian audience, chasing the goal to promote healthy way of life and ideals of manliness.

"In regard to Confederate memorials, perhaps Robert E. Lee's response to an invitation to mark Gettysburg with monuments is pertinent (emphasis my own):

"General pent up anger getting lashed out in all directions. Which when coming from the left = ZOMFG this is main stream and something we need to worry about. And on this site, I'm a fucking pariah for saying that. I mean seriously, how many…"
"Yeah. None of this is surprising or new to me. There were certain shows you knew everyone was gonna show up and it would be a riot. The skins, nazis, anarchists, punks, skas, leatherdaddies, angels. Then you add in the security which was often times…"
"Always figured you were a punk. I think that time was a little before mine. My teen yrs were more early 90s. Bangers and preppy guys then later grunge was popular and guys who wore bomber jackets and carried skateboards as a fashion item. My friends…"
