Most Common Mens Fashion Mistakes

There are certain things that cause even the most earthy and understanding of women to cringe and these things have to do, of course, with what you’re wearing. It’s not that women care only about what’s covering you up, but some items of mismatched clothing can so horribly distract a woman that she is incapable of further checking you out (and making it further into your bedroom). To avoid unknowi …

Halloween Bingo

Halloween is a pretty fun holiday to begin with, but when you reach a certain age, you get a lot of the fun parts taken away from you.  Once you're not allowed to trick or treat, you've got a few dry years before you can go to parties that your parents aren't at.  Then, a few more years until you're legally allowed to buy some adult beverages for said party.  If only there were one …

Personal Standing Hovercraft

Here’s the thing about hovercrafts: they are chick magnets. That’s a fact. You can ask Cutter if he got any action when he was on shore leave, but we’re pretty sure you know the answer. That being said, it’s not exactly easy to get yourself a personal hovercraft. Sure, you can sell the Bentley and Mansion and invest in a full-size war machine, but we’re thinking …

Surviving the 21st Century E-lationship

By: Jenny Foughner The young’uns among you might not remember this, but there was a time, long, long ago, when the term ‘social networking’ referred to happy hours, and ICQ was far a more ubiquitous acronym than DSL. Back then, we were blissfully unaware that ‘weirdo’ pastimes like Friendster and Livejournal were but a precursor to the maelstrom of technological overs …

Pan Am Replica Apartment

Ever since he was a little boy, Anthony Toth has been uniquely obsessed with the airline industry. While most of us were asking for something not exactly practical for our tenth birthdays, he pleaded with is parents to get him a subscription to the Official Airline Guide which lists a timetable of flight times – it’s the reference travel agents use. Since, he hasn’t really let up. Shortly after …

Biggest Treehouse on Earth

If you were Peter Pan, and you just got back from Neverland, the first thing you’d do is get an In and Out burger. But the second thing you’d do, is go find this treehouse and take it over as your new headquarters. Our apartments, opulent and bachelor-tastic though they may be, feel like piles of warm, moist trash compared to what it must be like to live in Horace Burgess’ Tennessee treehouse. …

Natural Hangover Cures

The crap truth of aging – besides the arthritis, cataracts and dementia – is that the older you get, the harder it is to engage in 36-hour alcoholic benders without suffering debilitating physical repercussions. Once you reach a Certain Age, “fun drunken shenanigans” are replaced by “passing out on the floor at 10 PM and waking up with a hangover that lasts for a day and a half,” which sucks, to s …

Shimano Xtreme Fishing for Wii Review

Here’s the thing about fishing games: sometimes their not very extreme. Never did we think that a fishing game would push the way we think about the genre to the point of not only being extreme, but being Mountain Dew-chuggingly, e-droppingly, xtreme. And, frankly, Shimano Xtreme Fishing might just live up to its 90s-inspired name. First of all, you can hunt sharks underwater with a spear gun. …

Is She Playing Hard to Get?

By: Jenny Foughner,  Women are talented creatures. I know, because I’m one of them. (Pause; curtsy.) But really: even the most awkward ladies have some part of the coquette act down; we know how to bat our eyelashes to get free stuff at bars, we know how to dress ourselves to get at least a small segment of the dude population to take notice of us, and we know how to keep a guy sweatin …

2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid

In this economy, in the face of some of the highest gas prices this American generation has ever seen, it seems like folly to buy any kind of SUV albeit an luxury one. But, you can’t take it with you, brother, so if you’re dead set on the luxury SUV, the globally conscious choice to make (without sacrificing luxury) would be the Cadillac SUV. It’s only a matter of time now, unt …

How to Look Rich

Being honest is important, but so is impressing the ladies.

Plus, it’s just plain fun to play the part of raging, ridiculously rich, bling-endowed big man o …

The Pacific Northwest makes no apologies for its precipitation, though it is surprised when its residents struggle on the highways every year during the first big rain after Summer.
