Regrets And Opportunities

I have to start with a couple of stories before I get to my point. I would imagine that by the time I get to my point, you, Dear Reader, will have gotten the point. Let’s get going shall we?

Back in 2004 I met a woman online. This was before “swipe apps” and dating sites were really just starting to become a thing. If my memory serves me correctly, I met this woman on MySpace.

She and I begin a dialogue, which turns to checking out each others pictures, which turns into both of us sending each other more recent pictures, which turns into flirty texting, which turns into phone calls, which turns into Skype calls, which turns into both of us deciding to meet in Vegas for a weekend getaway.

How You Can Hold Time in Your Hands

This article is originally from my personal site but I want to share it here. I love pocket watches and am thinking of carrying one again.

There’s a new old way to tell time and, in this age of cell-phone-time-checking, it’s about ‘time’ you seriously considered adding this item to your collection.

Sure, we’ve all used a wrist-watch. A nice, sturdy, run-of-the-mill, every-guy-has-one, wrist-watch.

There is something else. Something that adds a little old world gentility to your look.

Thoughts on “A More Complete Beast” by Jack Donovan

One of my favorite writers is Jack Donovan, author of “The Way of Men” and “Becoming a Barbarian.” His works have been an indispensable guide for men such as myself seeking to understand masculinity and build male friendships within the context of 21st Century, post-modern Western culture.

Recently I spent an afternoon reading his latest work, “A More Complete Beast.” Like his other books, it is a relatively short read, but each page seems to contain at least one if not two paragraphs of hard-hitting truths and observations.

In reflection, here are some key takeaways that are relevant for any man searching for meaning and purpose in the West.

Masculinity today is an option, and few want you to choose it

Outrage Revisited

(I originally posted this at RobSays.net and I feel that the message is important enough that it needs to be shared here as well. Rob)

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about the latest from Gillette, PETA, and the American Psychological Association. I still stand behind that post. It was valid then and is still valid now. However, I’ve had some time to think about it, and now I want to revisit it if you will.

Welcome to MasculineGeek.com

What is a Masculine Geek? A Masculine Geek is a Man who can play video games with the best of them as well as go out, pick up women, ride motorcycles, drink scotch, and smoke cigars, just to name a few things that he can do.

A Masculine Geek is a Well Rounded Man. He’s the Man that is comfortable in most, if not all social situations, he’s comfortable being surrounded by women, and he’s also comfortable at the gaming table playing the latest, or sometimes, the oldest role playing game that is out there.

A Masculine Geek can be comfortable with live action role playing as well as having an educated discussion about current politics and current events.

A Masculine Geek is the Man who knows how to program a computer, put together an app, and also knows what style of clothes fits him and makes him look his best.

A Masculine Geek is the Man who takes care of his body and his hygiene, but isn’t necessarily obsessed with how “ripped” he can get. He’s also the Man who has a bit of fashion sense, but doesn’t get hung up on it, or always follows the trends.

In the past Masculine and Geek were a dichotomy. The two didn’t go together and even seemed mutually exclusive. It doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to be just Masculine. You don’t just have to be a Geek.

The two can work together in perfect harmony, if you are willing to take the steps and the time to integrate the two.

So whether you’re a Geek who wants to become more Masculine, or you are a Masculine Man who either hides his Geek side, or is curious to know more about it, welcome! There will be plenty of information that we will be going over here and on our podcasts that will help you understand that you too, can be a Masculine Geek.
