My New Favorite Blog: The Art of Manliness

Oh. my. goodness. What a site for good reading, and something so necessary for our men these days. While I am working, very humbly, with a few other ladies on learning and crafting the Art of Being a Woman, it's nice to know that this site exists. I am especially impressed with the first date page:

If you play music, play it softly and keep the list classy. AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long” or Sir-Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” are not appropriate. Stick with some classic jazz or crooners like Frank Sinatra or Bobby Darrin. The music is pleasant, warm, and doesn’t distract from conversation. Remember to keep the volume down so you can hear each other talk. Oh, and don’t play NPR either. Sure, it will make you look “smart” and “enlightened,” but talk radio will kill the conversation between you two. Make a date with Terry Gross when you’re alone in the car and stuck in traffic.

I also enjoy the sections on manly hobbies, dress and grooming (particularly this post), and skills a man should (and can!) learn. This might be perhaps the most enlightening reading I've been exposed to in awhile.
