Where a Man can be a Man and not told to Shut Up!

Latest

Welcome to 2013!


We made it through the year when the world was supposed to end. A lot happened last year good and bad but toward the end of the year there sure was a lot of killing. Although the United States may be one of the best countries in the world we have a lot of violence. We are no longer a culture the respects one another. A matter of fact as a whole I am not sure that we respect anything. I mean don’t we deserve everything. I am entitled to whatever I want. If I don’t like something I won’t do it. This is what parents accept and teach their children. This has got to change! There should not be safe and unsafe neighborhoods. I should not have to worry where I go when I am in a foreign city.
In an age of texting and email we have lost our ability to communicate and deal with problems. I am not better than you and you are not better than me regardless of where we live and what we do for a living. We are only different. This has to be taught early.
I may make fun of people on here but believe me I will make fun of everyone and mean no disrespect. I believe that the more macho you act the less of a man you really are. Lets all try this year to relax a little more. Lets try to help people out a little more. Lets go out of our way to respect and get along with others regardless of their race, religion, sexual preferences, or wealth.
American culture teaches us to rush rush rush. In 2013 we should all try to take some time to have a nice glass of scotch, beer, or wine and cherish what we have. I try and do this at least once a week. Sometimes I add in a nice cigar! The point is I hope that you and me can have an amazing year and while we need to make an effort to spread the love we need to take care of ourselves and our love ones as well. As Micheal Jackson said “it’s all for love”.

Al Jazeera Corespondent has produced a one-hour documentary on the Isle of Man TT, a motorcycle race considered to be the one of the world’s most dangerous competitions. The Isle of Man TT: A Dangerous Addiction film talks about the race’s history, how it’s still held on public roads and how riders safety is touch-and-go. Watch the documentary after the jump.

New Years Resolutions


The new year brings a chance to reassess your life and what is important. It allows you to make changes and set new goals. 2012 has been a great year.  I got an amazing Mountain Bike

I realize that I need some new challenges. In 2012 only set one goal and that was to get my weight down to 165lbs for the Santa Barbara Triathlon.  I did it and had an amazing race.  I had my fastest run in any distance triathlon.  I only had a 5k where I had a faster pace.

The Mind Of Lemm

Hello! Welcome to the first edition The Stache. My name is Dylan Gross and this is a new publication for themindolemm and it’s been far behind in schedule. The aim is to bring you the latest and greatest things in the realm of, “manly things.” It’s titled The Stache because I believe every man should go through the process of at least trying to rock a moustache at some point in their life to be able to claim the title of man.This means we will be discussing: cars, motorcycles, tobacco, scotch, guns, moustaches, and essentially whatever I feel like talking about here that can be deemed manly.

The first thing I’d like to post about is the incredible masterpiece that is the Königsegg Agera R.ImageThis machine is the new big boy on hyper-car campus. The Swedish company has crafted a 6 world record holding monster that produces 1140 BHP…
