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

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”.

I Think We Survived the Apocalypse (End of the World) I Think!


Well I went to an end of the world party last night.  It was a lot of people from work.  We mostly talked about two other people from work.  Gossip, Gossip. I drank some delicious Anchor Porter.  It is in my top 10 favorite beers.  It is chocolaty goodness.

The party started at 6. I woke up at 6 and it was an hour away.  This basically equals I am not going to stay until 12 and see the end of the world.  Erin asked me if we would just sleep through the end and I said I hope so.  She said I want to see it, so I hit her in the shoulder hard and said it might hurt like that.  LOL.  Erin: ok i should sleep through it I guess.  Although tired as shit I said that we had to have sex because I am not dying without going out with a bang, I will use this line again tonight.  I think maybe the Mayans were just trying to get everyone laid.  I mean think about it.  Last night you could have went to a bar and used the Pitbull line “Can’t promise tomorrow
But, I promise tonight”.  So if you didn’t use this line last night it may still work tonight.  I can’t promise anything but its worth a try.

So I am now writing this blog so I lived through it.  Oh but maybe it ends tonight.  I am trying to figure out what cigar in the humidor would be appropriate for the end of the world.  I did buy some Zaya rum to have with it because I have heard good things but I have never tried an aged rum.

I will be making a Podcast tonight so look for it tomorrow.


Puff, Puff, Pastry and Pizza


Last night was a nice guys night.  It started out with a Papa Murphy’s pizza that I transformed in to The Man Pub’s pizza.  I added puff pastry to the top.  BAM


We also started out with some Deschutes Obsidian Stout which is just an amazing beer.  It is not a super thick stout but it has a full flavor of chocolate and espresso.

Next it was outside to enjoy a couple of cigars, Glemorangie Scotch, a local beer from Sleepy Dog Brewery in Tempe, AZ.  Another great beer that Drew picked out.  

I had a Gurkha Grand Reserve Cigar which was awesome.  it is a light cigar that is infused in cognac.  Drew wanted a more full body cigar, so he thought.  He was at a cigar bar and they wouldn’t even let him buy a full body cigar because they said he wouldn’t like it.  Of course now that’s all he wants.  I got him a medium-full body cigar, a Cubita Spanish Market Selection Churchill.  It was a bit much.  I mean he thought it was ok but he really liked mine.  I didn’t enjoy the Cubita it was just over the top.

My friend came over and told us a story that happen earlier that day.  He went on a call to replace a toilet in a brand new house.  He asked why and she said one of the workers make have used it.  Where do these bitches come from?  What  if she is out in public and has to take a shit?  Does she go on vacation, what then?  Another good night!

This morning I was up early to enjoy the Phoenix Mountain on the RIP 9 with my friend Tommy.  We had a great ride with great climbs and awesome downhills.  It was a little cooler but the humidity was up to 57% which in the desert is pretty high.


Japanese Vending Machines


In Japan there is really nothing that you can not find in a vending machine.  You can buy almost any kind of food from noodles to Kobe beef.  The drink selection is absolutely amazing.  You can get everything from green tea to Coke to hot or cold coffee to juice all in the same machine.  I loved buying the hot coffee cans.  Best of all you can get beer!  Vending machines are everywhere because unlike the US Japanese citizens do not vandalize and steel everything that is outside.  What a concept!

One vending machine that I just found out about that even to me is a bit gross is women’s used underwear.  Now I am probably hornier than average and I just can’t figure this out.  I mean I know they put an amazingly hot girl on the box but do you really think she it the girl who wore them?  It’s probably like phone sex.  She may sound amazing but she weighs a good 350 with facial hair and hasn’t taken a shower in a week.  At about $50 that is a big risk.  I would love this job though.  I mean you prob get free underwear and then a pay check when you turn your underwear in at the end of the week.  If any of you want a pair of let me know I will do a pair for $30.  Below is a video of these vending machines.

Here comes My Bro


Well it official.  My brother is going to move back out to Arizona.  Thank you Sedona for making his decision even easier.  My brother came out to visit first Portland and then Phoenix.  After coming out in near perfect conditions and reunited with Me and his other friends he has decided to come back out to the Grand Canyon State.  

Being based at home has allowed my workouts to be a lot more consistent.  I love getting off of work and getting to workout before I come home.  Commuting to work in a different city really does lower your quality of life.  I am not sure why people do it for their whole careers.  

Took the dogs for a walk after my workout and I think that, although he is far from cured, Sampson is doing better with seeing other dogs.  I am not sure he is ready to walk face to face on a small sidewalk but I do feel that he is making progress.  

I believe that it is time for some relaxation and some products from New Belgium Brewery.


Workout and Pipeline Porter


It was a great day!  Went to 24 Hour Fitness and worked out.  I was actually impressed to see one good Trainer.  Yesterday I was at different one and witness the worst set of Personal Trainers ever.  People watching is what gets me through these workouts.  I am normally scanning for the hot half-naked girls but most of the time I go at 10-11 am so that’s not exactly what I get to see.  I am normally looking at the oldest or biggest person in spandex.  Next it was time to relax.  I was hoping to go Mountain Biking but I was so tiered.  I choose to take the dogs for a 2 mile walk instead.

I have been working on some obedience issues with my Olde English Bully Sampson.  I think that the reading I have done is actually paying off.  He is being much better behaved during our walks and at home.  We walked about 2 miles and both Paddington and Sampson did great.

Now I am sitting dow and enjoying a Pipeline porter from Hawaii while writing this and watching at my awesome reef tank.

What are your favorite Beers?


Chilling a Coke or Beer in 2 Minutes


We have all bought some beer and were upset it wasn’t already refrigerated.  Now here is the key to getting it cold fast!


Samuel Adams Winter Pack


Sam Adams has done it again. Here are 3 of the great beers in their winter pack. The chocolate bock is like dessert. The Black and Brew is amazing. Its like drinking a Starbucks coffee! The Old Fezzwig Ale is obviously lighter but full body and round with chocolate and toffee notes and hints cinnamon and ginger spices. All I can say is YUM.
