Scott’s Super-Duper Secret Manual to the Women Thumbnail

Valentines Day is well behind us, all the chocolates have been eaten, the strawberries have gone bad, and the wine is flat. Personally speaking, it was a wonderful evening, and I hope it was as wonderful for you. There just seems to be one thing that has persisted from this. The complaints of oblivious men [...]

The Sochi Olympics: At Least It Isn’t Detroit Thumbnail

As the world turns it’s ever lazy eyes on Sochi for the Olympics, a flurry of reportings have emerged from the resort city. Hotels that lack basic accommodations like running water, or floors, seems to be the norm. Littered across the roadways are uncovered manholes, and there seems to be a serious issue with stray [...]

man eating emotions

It’s now February, and like most people around this time, I've been struggling with my New Years resolution. I ate far too much of Nana's traditional Christmas Lasagna (don’t ask) and packed on the pounds. Normally this is something that wouldn't bother me, except I find myself in the unusual position of having an extremely [...]

Massdrop – Save Big on Gadgets and Gear with Group Buying Thumbnail

So being a perpetual hobbyist, constantly in search of new ways to do strange things better, I find myself on the fringe. I paid a man a premium for the privilege of ordering a Raspberry Pi. I have custom programmed video controllers to run salvaged laptop screens. Hell, you guys have seen me write about [...]

Manscaping: Don’t Call Your Lawn Guy Thumbnail

The rise of manscaping in the lives of 21st century males has been an interesting development. Mostly, because we’re all entirely friggin' lost in this ridiculous ocean of products. I literally have no clue what conditioner does, but I know my lady likes it when I use it. My medicine cabinet used to be filled [...]

Stoptober – Our Vice is Scary Thumbnail

If one takes but a moment to scrutinize my author picture, you might notice a big fat cigar in my mouth. A Romeo y Juliet if I recall, and I must admit that I enjoy smoking. It's a pleasurable experience, and I doubt if it weren't, many people wouldn't have started. I also doubt many people would [...]

Budgeting your Wireless: Minutes and Dollars Thumbnail

The state of wireless providers is really truly something to behold. Every time you turn on the television, a new phone is out, they’ve got just the new deal for you, but the terms of service have changed. Hassle free is thrown around a lot, but it seems like the more often they use the [...]

Even Cavemen Decorated their Caves – What Kind of Man Are You? Thumbnail

So being as I've been left talking about man-caves, I'd like to talk to you about the activities of such a place. Sure beer works, and a television is more of a necessity than the beer itself. Yes, entertainment is a necessity for a man cave; otherwise you'd just be drinking in an empty room. [...]

The Obamacare Trail – Navigating Job Opportunities Thumbnail

With the roll out of the Affordable Care Act, a lot of feathers have been ruffled on my home turf. People complain that it costs the taxpayer too much. Others complain about an "encroachment" of personal freedoms by the government. Even still, there are those who believe the bill doesn't go far enough, and desire a [...]

Creating a Manly Space for Work and Play – The Above Ground “Man Cave” Thumbnail

So just a few articles ago I wrote about the possibility of setting up a summerhouse as a separate home office. While this is all well and good, I realized that some of us are struggling a more base way. It’s that we lack that original space in which men could be men. The place [...]
