    Last night Porsche kicked off “The Sound of Porsche”, a multi-sensory pop up that’s set to call 446 W. 14th Street in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District home for the next three weeks. The entire experience is a blend of brand stories, virtual driving, and even a design challenge for fans to partake in. It all starts with the media stations at the front of the space that turn it into a modern record store. There are several custom records and playlists created by Porsche for you to check out as you slap on a pair of noise-cancelling Bose headphones. In the lineup are…

    We’ve rolled out a fresh new assortment of 180-gram-vinyl-worthy Sennheiser audio equipment. Sennheiser was founded in Germany just weeks after WWII ended in 1945 to produce voltmeters. Before long, they started churning out their famed microphones and headphones; 70 years later, they remain at the forefront of audio technology.

    There are many skills fathers should pass on to their children: how to ride a bike, how to skip a stone, and of course, how to make a paper airplane. When it’s time to show your kids how to fold a humble piece of paper into a soaring jet, don’t stumble around and hastily construct one from the poor memory of your youth — one that takes a disappointing nosedive as soon as it leaves your fingertips. Instead, teach them the art of making a plane that can truly go the distance.

    Magnetic collar stays. Just how necessary are they in a man’s wardrobe? I personally use them daily. However the reality is most men don’t even use basic collar stays. Basic collar stays are primarily made of plastic or metal. The small percentage of us men who use collar stays regularly – only the most detail oriented of us focus in on the magnetic variation that allow you to hold your dress shirt collar in place with a hidden magnet. So don’t be embarrassed if you’ve never heard of the specialty niche that magnetic collar stays fill. But now that you know it…

    Loving relationships are the most important factor in a man’s happiness, success, and ability to live a fully flourishing life. And one of the most important factors in creating and sustaining these warm, intimate relationships is communication. Unfortunately, how to communicate with one’s significant other in a healthy, positive way is something rarely taught to either men or women. As a result, many couples find that their discussions regularly turn into heated, unproductive arguments that ultimately damage their relationship. Angry fighting leads to distance and weakens intimacy.

    Brett & Kate McKay

    John Boyd is described by some as the greatest military strategist in history that no one knows. He began his military career as a fighter pilot in the Korean War, but he slowly transformed himself into one of the greatest philosopher-warriors to ever live. In 1961, at age 33, he wrote “Aerial Attack Study,” which codified the best dogfighting tactics for the first time, became the “bible of air combat,” and revolutionized the methods of every air force in the world. His Energy-Maneuverability (E-M) Theory helped give birth to the legendary F-15, F-16, and A-10 aircraft. Perhaps his…

    Though we’ve seen Speed models of other vehicles in the Bentley stable, the British coachmaker’s flagship sedan has never been so fortunate. Until now. The 2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed brings in more power while adjusting some design elements as well. Outside, you’ll notice dark-tinted grilles and lights as well as directional 21-inch wheels while you’ll notice a two-tone interior that takes roughly 150 hours of labor and 14 bull hides to finish to perfection. Under the hood, the Mulsanne Speed delivers 530 horsepower which is 25 more than the standard Mulsanne.

It features a beautiful design that’s focused primarily on the LED screen that has display indicators which only show when required. You can touch the front to wake it up, switch between heating, cooling and controlling the fan by swiping left or right, and use the up and down arrows to set the temperature. From there, the display will fade and return to a seamless state while working in the background. And when…

Having 100 wineries all working with the same grape varietal is fascinating and challenging as you decide: Which wineries to try; How to compare them; What story to look for. Since wine has truth, it should tell its own story. The first wine I tried was from a reputable and well known producer Benovia. The winery is located west of Santa Rosa, with vineyards in the Russian River and Sonoma Coast appellations. The first glass was from…

As the translator churns English into Amharic, the young mother in a red t-shirt hides her mouth behind fidgeting fingers and stares through the ground. There’s confusion about the meaning of “typical”. “Normal”, Micah says. Immediately tears form in the mother’s eyes, then slide down her brown cheeks. She speaks. Then the translator looks at me.

  • The Bauhaus School Gets Its Own Font

    17 Sep 2014 | 1:47 pm
    The iconic Bauhaus school never had its own corporate identity or logo since its founding 54 years ago. But this year, thanks to Studio L2M3‘s founder Sascha Lobe — who’s worked with the likes of adidas, Vitra, and Mercedes-Benz — Bauhaus finally gets its own font and design. With commission help from the Bauhaus-Archive Museum fur Gestaltung, Lobe and company created typography and posters that will represent the design powerhouse. The new font is called Bayer Next, an updated version of the Bayer font launched by Bauhaus in 1925. The text designs will also appear in…

Well, if I can’t talk you out of it, I might as well let you know how to do the ring right… and keep your plans under wraps so no one ruins the surprise. The first thing you should know is the hardest part of buying her a ring is determining her ring size. That’s going to require some risky sleuthing. Because anyone you tell could potentially spill the beans and spoil your plans. Plus, there’s the added difficulty of choosing a ring style she actually likes without tipping her off.

Believe me, I agree. Are you really going to call any of these guys feminine to their faces? Nope.

Because while Anthony Davis may get away with rocking the unibrow on the court, you just look like Creepy Bert trying to get in some chick’s pants.

    When working through conflict, does saying “I’m sorry” really work? In my experience, no. Most of the time it is used as a way to “hurry up” and move on. Sure, there is a place for a genuine apology, but I don’t recommend any apology until you’ve first acknowledged where you messed up or caused harm. Instead watch this short video…   As you can see, a true repair isn’t just about an apology. It’s about helping the other person see that we also see what we did or did not do.

But instead of being received, we feel misunderstood, judged, and not really heard. Our share triggered them into their stuff and now they aren’t available to us anymore. Sometimes this can escalate into a long fight, or rift between us. Of course, some version of this is what happened in our families. So, here we are again feeling wrong, or bad, frustrated and unmet.

    On the heels of last week’s news that industry giant General Cigar had acquired the Toraño brands—and that Toraño would be shutting down—seemingly everyone had an opinion to voice. I saw viewpoints ranging from indifference to surprise to downright anger. There remain many unanswered questions. Why did Toraño make this move now (assuming there is a reason beyond Charlie Toraño wanting to spend more time with his family)? Is General actually committed to maintaining the current Toraño portfolio as-is, or will there be changes to the existing blends? Will new Toraño offshoots/brands…

That’s understandable given the extremely small production numbers of that first VOR; most probably never saw the cigar in any cigar shop near them. With a name clearly evocative of that acclaim, Viaje recently rolled out this new Churchill (7 x 50) size of the VOR blend dubbed Aficionado.

  • Quick Smoke: La Antiguedad Corona Grande

    14 Sep 2014 | 1:00 am
    Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.” My colleague reviewed La Antiguedad (Spanish for “antiquity”) a couple months ago, but I hadn’t gotten around to trying this new offering from My Father Cigars. I picked up the box-pressed Corona Grande (6.4 x 47) from a local shop for just under $8. The Ecuadorian Habano Rosado Oscuro wrapper looks flavorful with its reddish-brown color, notable veins, and oily appearance. Beneath are double Corojo and Criollo…
  • Quick Smoke: La Palina Goldie Laguito Especial

    13 Sep 2014 | 1:00 am
    Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.” On a recent trip, I was surprised to spot this limited edition on a cigar store shelf. Naturally, I couldn’t resist, even at $19. Goldie has achieved something of a cult status since La Palina released the first edition 2012. I never had that one, or the Goldie that came out in 2013. If they were as tasty and elegant as this one, I understand all the praise. This lancero-shaped (7 x 40) smoke is, simply, wonderful—from the fantail…

    Thomas G. Fiffer
    17 Sep 2014 | 4:00 pm
    Inspired by his eight-year-old son’s passion for ‘Mythbusters,’ Thomas Fiffer tackles a major way we hold ourselves back in life. ___ My younger son, who’s eight, watches a show on the Discovery Channel called “Mythbusters.” Watches isn’t really the right word. He’s obsessed with it. In the show, a group of young men and women conduct experiments to test and, if possible, bust popular theories and myths. The shows often involve car chases, explosives, science experiments, and other elaborate set ups to determine the truth through exacting…

I’m a smart woman. A lot people say, well, who would stay in that situation? Somebody who maybe doesn’t have the wherewithal to get out, the means to get out. I had that. I had a job at the time ….

  • Why I Wouldn’t Have Opened Philadelphia’s Schools on Time

    Christopher “Flood the Drummer®” Norris
    17 Sep 2014 | 2:30 pm
    I wouldn’t have opened Philadelphia’s schools out of concern for students, and to send a message to the state of Pennsylvania.   If I were the Superintendent of Philadelphia’s schools and were faced with a legacy deficit and insurmountable political opposition that made it impossible for my district to both compete globally and provide safe, clean, supervised spaces for the more than 100,000 students who expect a quality education, than I wouldn’t have opened the doors on September 8th, regardless of the bad press and potential jail time.

    Alexander Lowe
    17 Sep 2014 | 2:09 pm
    Alexander Lowe examines the role that religions and faiths could play as uniting, rather than dividing, forces.   Watching new Sinéad O’Connor’s single “Take me to Church” I remembered the story of this troubled soul, enfant terrible, black sheep and drama queen of pop music. Propelled into stardom with her ground-breaking cover of Prince’s “Nothing compares 2 U”, she soon became ‘person non-grata’ after tearing off a photo of the late Pope on the live Saturday Night TV performance. The shock and universal condemnation that followed forced her into hiding, even…

No, not YOUR mom, {E’s} mom. Yes, I need to talk to you. I have a special request. Well, more like a list of demands. And yes, I know – I’m not supposed to demand anything of you, but I feel like ya kind of owe me on this one.

    Men love cars. It’s no secret. From the moment these tin creations burst into the landscape, they forever changed how we see the world. From the pick of planes and trains and boats, its the humble automobile that’s parked in our driveways. They let us go further and faster than we thought possible. They created road trips, affordable vacations, and even jobs. Cars also contribute heavily to our economy, and can be found in sports such as NASCAR. Cars are everywhere, and for some very good and useful reasons, but none more so than our undeniable love – and lust – for…

    “Emotional Intelligence for men”: is not an oxymoron. In fact, we are developing the Masculine Quotient, or MQ Test. Go here to take it: www.masculinequotient.com/mq-test-creation We need your help. Men grew up with the honor of being schooled in emotional intelligence by our mothers, then our teachers, counselors, girlfriends, and wives. No matter how good we were as students of emotions, however, there was always something missing. Few of us had men modeling or teaching Masculine Emotional Intelligence (MEI).

  • Masculine Emotional Intelligence: Hacking Emotions at SXSW

    Owen Marcus
    12 Aug 2014 | 6:58 am
    “Feeling emotions” is not an oxymoron for men. Men generally feel and express emotions differently than women do. Women have always had to step up to fill in for all the times men were away from the family working, fighting, traveling – and they did a great job. But we’ve lost the masculine perspective on emotionality – if we ever really had it. Boys often don’t have their fathers around to show them the unique masculine ways to experience and express their emotions. Instead, as boys we learned a feminine way of feeling and expressing. Collectively we now view emotionality from a…
  • How to kiss

    1 Aug 2014 | 7:22 am
    Who was ever taught how to kiss a woman? I wasn’t. Like all boys, I got coaching from other boys who, like me, talked as if were James Bond.. We acted as if we knew what girls wanted and how to give it to them. Over time, most of us realized that our education was lacking. Trying desperately to get to second or third base – let alone hit a home run – was not always satisfying for the women or us. We probably did not understand that focusing on performance created stress and limited our own pleasure. Al Pacino’s speech in The Scent of a Woman is most men’s best education into how to…

These written requests for attendee attire are usually only one or two words long, meant to be printed on an invitation and understood by all the potential guests. Unfortunately, universal understanding of social dress codes is going the way of cursive handwriting: it has an old-fashioned appeal to some people, but most of…

We watch, we play, we love football here at Average Joes, and we know how important it is to have the best pair of boots that both look and feel just perfect on the pitch.

Reaching back through their history, they’ve pulled out a few recipes from their archives to create these two beers that will be sold across the UK by the bottle, although the Dublin Porter may also be found on tap in some rather lucky locations.

    Timberland have opened the doors on their new look Regent Street flagship store, which has been given a brand new design concept to align with their slightly more urban, outdoor lifestyle identity. You’d be forgiven for thinking that the store on Regent Street is brand new, given the sweeping changes and dramatic facelift it has undergone. From the moment you walk into the store, it has a more urban renewal feel, with the bare brickwork style wall facing you and the subdued tones of the AW14 collection on the shelves. Everything in the store is ‘hand made’, a lot of the…

And if you have been living in a cave, you still managed to find your way to this somehow – it’s all over social media so get on there and let your friends know you’re ok, please. There’s plenty that’s been written about the Apple Watch (not iWatch rather annoyingly for the OCD in us) already and has caused more attention as it’s the first brand new product line since Steve Jobs’ passing. As is usual with Apple products, however, there is a lot of…
  • The Abyss Table

    There are two kinds of furniture in this world. There’s the plain, every day kind, the kind that subtly does its job with minimal fuss; and then there’s the attention-grabbing, completely-absurd-yet-awesome kind – furniture that might not be as practical or hardy as your boring brown armchair, but who cares? It’s a talking point in itself; its impracticality is all part of the novelty. Obviously, the ‘Abyss Table’ falls into the latter group. The name alone hints at its absurdity; after all, anything with the word ‘abyss’ in its title is bound to be out of the ordinary. And…

At 30 years old, I was preparing for a life on campus of laptops, leggings, and social chatter, an environment I had left 10 years prior.

    I’m still a drug addict. I have an addictive personality. Actually, it’s more a habitual personality. Addicts have a hard time quitting their chosen vices. I’ve never had a hard time quitting anything…when I want to. But I like drugs. I like them a lot. LSD+X+K used to be my standard cocktail of choice. And by standard I mean 3-4 days a week. Occasionally more. Back then I was a bartender on A1A in South Florida making ridiculous money every night in all cash. My roommate was a dealer who paid 100% of her rent in the above mentioned cocktail ingredients and cartons of Newports.

I was a horrible person. “We don’t just want to be seen. We want to be significant.” I heard that line while watching House of Cards on Netflix last night. Jill was at roller derby practice and the kids were in bed. It’s the only time I have to watch it. I immediately thought of Jason (not his…

I wake up around 5:30 or 6:00 (depending  if wine, bourbon, or tea was involved the night before) so I can be alone with prayer and gratitude. It starts my day in the right mindset. It’s a kind of armor for me. I try to be quite as possible to not wake the girls, but… any parent knows how that usually goes. My first emotion when hearing one of them stumble into the room is annoyance. “Ugh. Why is she awake? It’s 6:30 in…

That’s how I felt reading the email…over and over and over again. As I sat there growing more pissed off I realized every word in the email was TRUE! You see, I’d been blinding myself to the real reality of a few areas in my life. Areas that were (some still are) causing cracks in my integrity — limiting how people see and trust me. Even more, I started to see the hypocrisy of my own heroes! And…

    Eric J. Leech

    An oxford dress shoe can be called gray or grey, unless it is made by Bacca Bucci, handmade in Italy, and there is a really burly football player demanding you call it Suzy—and then we recommend just calling it Suzy. You can wear a lot of different shoes with Demin. However, few shoes will dress up a pair of blue jeans like these Bacca Bucci Suede Grey Oxfords. They feature a classic perforated medallion design, leather/rubber outsole, and a brilliant heritage of world-class appeal and quality. You probably own a pair of black wingtip dress shoes, but wouldn’t you rather own a pair of…

    Zombieland (2009) With the Walking Dead television series in full swing on AMC and movies like Resident Evil and World War Z so popular in the theaters, the zombie movement has never been so grand. Everywhere one looks zombies seem to be coming out of the woodwork. They are overrunning mainstream culture and consuming everything in their path. Though zombies have been around for years in entertainment, since about 1968 with George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, that theme has usually been relegated to low budget movies, video games, and throw-away episodes of television series.

But the truth is, presenting your soon to be wife with a diamond ring hasn’t always been the norm. A Brief History of the Engagement Ring History tells us that the cavemen used to forage for plants and twigs and tie them around their “wives” fingers, wrists, or ankles to claim their spirits. The ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians were also fond of symbolic rings to represent the union of man and woman. The Romans used to use heavy duty materials for their…

Regardless of the success that you have, in your own right, you are no better than anyone. Not to say that you're accomplishments are worthless, but you can damage the worth of your hard work. How? When you allow them to conceit you into the perception that they (your accomplishments) establish you as "better" than other people. Truth is, you are not.

Infidelity is one of those things that can cause so much anger to a person and it shouldn't be tolerated at all. I believe that if you know that you cannot and will not be faithful, then you shouldn't lead someone on that can and will be faithful to you. I hear people all the time say that they told the person that they didn't want a relationship or that they cannot be faithful, but the truth is, what matters is your actions. You…
