The April 2014 Playlist

The April 2014 Playlist

I struggled figuring out how to open this month’s playlist, so I figured that I would start with a song that has no particular pigeonhole to begin with. “Dograces” by Dub Thompson is weird, awesome, terrible,...

Modern Dionysus: Three Famous Philosophers Explained 30 Seconds

Modern Dionysus: Three Famous Philosophers Explained 30 Seconds

Rule 2 is important, y’all. Not just for my unborn child, but for everyone. To that end, I recently wrote an article for Apothic Wine’s blog, Modern Dionysus, explaining three philosophers in 30 seconds. This is a wildly incomplete and simplified synopsis, and I’m certainly no well-respected scholar, but I did my best. Here’s a...
Giveaway: Old Spice Shampoo and Bruce Lee Collector's Set

Giveaway: Old Spice Shampoo and Bruce Lee Collector’s Set

Not too long ago, I reviewed the entire Old Spice haircare line–some of which isn’t even released yet. Well, since that’s not really fair to those folks who might live in areas where they might not have access to the most recently-released shampoo, we decided to do a giveaway with Old Spice to help spread...
The Rakani +5 Watch

The Rakani +5 Watch

By now, you know the importance of wearing a watch; you’re a guy who has things to do, and you need to keep track of your day. However, there are a ton of watches out there, and most of them are either really cheap and poorly made, or they’re so overpriced that you might have...
Mandles: Candles for Men

Mandles: Candles for Men

So burning candles in your home is a nice touch, but the hard part is sorting through the riff raff and finding candles that keep your man cave sacred ground. The market of candles for men is pretty untapped at the moment, but there are a few good options out there. Below are a few...
The Entire Old Spice Haircare Line

The Entire Old Spice Haircare Line

This is a sponsored post. I was compensated by Old Spice to write this article, but was given creative freedom to decide the manner in which to do it. All views and opinions are my own, and I was given total control, in typical Old Spice fashion. Hey y’all, did you know that there is an...
The March 2014 Playlist

The March 2014 Playlist

Yes, it’s that time again. Time for you to read my awful descriptions of songs that does nothing to add to what is already an awesome set of songs. I know, I’ll try and make it quick this time. We start off with Beverly and the best song I’ve heard all year with “Honey Do.” I...
Jack Black Blue Mark Cologne

Jack Black Blue Mark Cologne

The Jack Black Blue Mark cologne ($70) is a fresh, minty, and herbal-smelling summer scent that has a lot of similarities to the New York cologne from Brooks Brothers, and not just because the bottles look similar. What both scents have in common is their freshness, although I think Blue Mark takes the cake in that...
BFM: "We" by Yevgeny Zamyatin

BFM: “We” by Yevgeny Zamyatin

“We” by Yevgeny Zamyatin is everything that is awesome about the dystopian genre–irreverence for history, a dictatorship-style of government, and a ubiquitous factory lifestyle. However, what makes “We” stand out is how this lesser-known novel (when compared with works like “1984″ and “Brave New World,”) set the standard for later works. Written in 1921, this novel...
The February 2014 Playlist

The February 2014 Playlist

First of all, I’d like all of us to take a minute and appreciate this really creepy photo of this dude looking at us all–yeah. Anyways, it’s a new month so you know what that means. If you don’t know, now you do–a new playlist. Let’s get right to it, shall we? Fear of Men...
Lucky Tiger Face Wash

Lucky Tiger Face Wash

It’s been a while since I reviewed a face wash, and I’m glad to have gotten back into the swing of things again with Lucky Tiger. If you don’t know Lucky Tiger, you probably should. Founded in the 1920′s, Lucky Tiger started in the Missouri basement of a barber and amateur scientist by the name...
The Kraken Black Spiced Rum

The Kraken Black Spiced Rum

Sometimes, you just feel like a pirate. You know, typical Wednesday, out plundering and looting, and what better way to end your day than with some rum. But you’re not just any pirate, you’re a pirate of discerning taste–so you want something other than a light run-of-the-mill rum. So what do you do? You turn...
