The “yummy” factor – The Addiction to Comfort and Stimulation

by Admin

If you flash back 50 years, men lived a different life. We wore suits to the office or to church, drank bourbon or scotch, didn’t have air conditioning, we read newspapers, and sometimes we just sat there and did nothing. Somewhere along the line we have traded it for sweat pants, sugary drinks, and constant […]

Poems Every Man Should Know – Charge of the Light Brigade

by Admin

Regular TBFM readers will be familiar with what we regard as the best poem for men.  However, there is more than one worthwhile poem for men.  The Charge of the Light Brigade was an actual event where a group of British Soldiers was sent erroneously into a near impossible full frontal attack of a Russian […]

Dystopian Novels

by Admin

Real men read books.  This is just the truth.  Books get into more detail than any movie ever could.  Characters are developed, plots are twisted, and stories are told.   Today I want to shed a little light on one niche of literature that is interesting. By definition a dystopia is the opposite of a utopia.  […]

The Mancation – A real man vacation

by Admin

A mancation is a trip including a manly activity to any given location for men only.  This is not simply going on vacation with some buddies.  It is not the cliché trip to Vegas.  It goes beyond the normal and the usual.  The mancation is a vacation with action.  It is for guys only…no drama, […]

Damn, it Feels Good to be a Gangsta – 11 Lessons from Office Space

by Keith

PETER Michael, we don’t have a lot of time on this earth. We weren’t meant to spend it this way. Human beings were not meant to sit in little cubicles staring at computers all day, filling out useless forms and listening to eight different bosses drone on about mission statements.   Office Space, Mike Judge’s […]

Historical Bad@ss – Sir Francis Drake

by Keith

Spanish King Ferdinand II called him “El Draque.” Others spoke of “Francis the Dragon.” Born a British farmer’s son in 1544, Francis Drake rose to infamy by age 23. At 36 he cemented his name among history’s immortals. It was said of Drake that “people of quality dislike him for having risen so high from […]

Funny TV Shows that You Probably Haven’t Seen

by Admin

There are an ungodly amount of TV shows that litter our TV screens these days.  You can place these programs into a few buckets:  reality shows, cop shows, bad sitcoms, and doctor shows.  We have more shows than ever before to pick from, but so very few funny shows.  There are a few mainstream shows […]

The Better Half: Profiling Women of Substance – Marissa Mayer

by Keith

Marissa Mayer is beautiful. Blonde hair and blue eyes with an arresting smile; it seems likely Brian Wilson anachronistically wrote “California Girls” about her. It’s not her looks, though, that make Marissa one of the most powerful women in the world. Beautiful women come a dime-a-dozen, a lucky confluence of genetics and fashion. Make no […]

Crawl Through the Sh*t – 11 Lessons from “The Shawshank Redemption”

by Keith

Crawl Through the Sh*t – 11 Lessons from “The Shawshank Redemption” RED Not long after the warden deprived us of his company, I got a postcard in the mail. It was blank, but the postmark said Fort Hancock, Texas. Fort Hancock… right on the border. That’s where Andy crossed. When I picture him heading south […]
