Archive of Chad

I'm a co-founder and writer here at Unfinished Man. I write, manage the look and feel of the website, and make sure that nothing breaks. I also reply to the vast majority of our emails, so if you're sending one through, I suggest you be nice. Everyone says I'm the least offensive of our writers, so they gave the email jockey task to me. When I'm not improving the site, I write about fashion, video games, politics, and anything related to science and technology.

dark clouds ebook

I like to think of myself as a voracious reader, but I'm very particular about what I read. I spend a lot of time researching authors and books before diving in, and though this may not be the best way to go about it, this system has worked pretty well for me so far. So [...]

van damme as predator

Predator, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Jesse Ventura, and a collection of other memorable (but clearly not too memorable) actors, is one of my absolute favorite 80s movies. Predator lives in the realm of Total Recall and Terminator 2, and for me, that's saying something. But Predator also has a secret history. Did you know [...]

sleeping soundly

It goes without saying that sleep is an important part of life. We have crazy adventures during the day (and into the night), but eventually we need to set our head down, get some sleep, and recharge. The reasons are numerous, but for a straightforward example, try not sleeping for a night and see how [...]

civilization beyond earth

Have you ever played any of Sid Meire's Civilization games? They've been around for ages, and though they always seemed like something I would enjoy, I just never got around to playing any of them. I think that's a shame, and this fall I'm going to give this franchise the attention it deserves. You see, [...]

cyber attacks map

The Internet is an amazing invention; perhaps our very best. It's a place of endless information, rich media, rapid communication, and wonders yet undiscovered. But experiencing it without anti-virus software is like fucking a stranger without a condom - eventually you're going to catch something nasty. So to illustrate this point, I would like to [...]

watch dogs technology nvidia

Have you ever noticed how games seem to become uglier as they get closer to release? Strictly speaking, this isn't actually true. What's really happening is that the marketing departments of game studios think it's brilliant to only show the high resolution PC version of the game for most of the marketing material. This makes [...]

hotline miami 2 violence

Hotline Miami was one of the most unexpectedly enjoyable games I've ever played. When I finally gave it a try about a year ago, I did so with complete reluctance. For one thing, I was beyond drunk and didn't feel like doing much of anything, and secondly, I looked down on indie games. Most of [...]

la art district man cave

I've written about a metric shit-ton of man caves and bachelor pads in my day. Many of our readers just so happen to be men trying to improve their bachelor pads, so it makes sense. But I'm not going to lie... it gets a little old sometimes. That's why it's so nice to finally cover [...]

solar energy panels

For those of you that keep tabs on my articles, you've probably noticed quite a few talking about solar energy. I'm excited about it... it's going to be a bright future, so to speak, and though this future affects everyone, today I'm going to zero in on Australia a bit. Few people question the wide [...]

550 cord shoelaces

About a week ago I was tying my shoes and the laces broke. Now, I know what you're going to say... "cool story bro!", but I'm telling you this for a reason. I'm telling you this so that you too can have awesome, super strong, inexpensive 550 cord shoelaces. This is so easy to do [...]
