I don't know what "have wank'" or do a "kit kat suffle" means. And I've often found banging one's head against a wall to be quite satisfying because it feels so good when you stop. Seriously, I don't watch television, we seldom go to a movie, and I turned away from music when it started to be atonal, clashing amplified guitars, unintelligible lyrics, and rap. There are really fine musicians 'out there.' I just don't know where to find them--and I don't necessarily listen to music for the virtuosity of the performer on a given instrument--although I heard a trumpet rendition of "Flight of the Bumblebee" the other night that was breathtaking. It was incidental background music in a TV movie my husband was watching.

"Fascism combats, and must combat, without respite or pity, not intelligence, but intellectualism—which is, as I have indicated, a sickness of the intellect" - Giovanni Gentile

”After visiting these places, you can easily understand how that within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived. He had boundless ambition for his country which rendered him a menace to the peace of the world, but he had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. He had in him the stuff of which legends are made.”- John F. Kennedy

You just don't know where to look. There's something out there for anybody with ears, it's just not always easy to find. I put a lot of effort into finding good music, and some of what I find aggregates in the link below this post, in my sig.

Not that I don't visit this kind of site from time to time (a bit more fashion related though) but I can never look at one of this sites without a pinch of salt.

Who gets to define what being a man is ? Who gets to tell others what a man should look like, act like and so forth..
And I'm not being pretentious, I'm a victim of this too. I love my clothes, I go to the gym, I wanna have a very specific kind of body...
But every now and then I see these things for what they are. Bullshit. Fight club comes to mind.

Anyway...

Top 5 "types of art"

- Music
-Architecture ( minimal and contemporary)
-Movie/film
-Photography ( conceptual)
-Sculpture (conceptual)

Top 5 colour trends for 2012

1. Brights, preferably neon bright
2. Candy-coloured pastels for Spring
3. Hot shades like red, orange and yellow
4. Prints are in, preferably mix n match
5. Head to toe black is still chic as always
Examine what is said, not him who speaks.

The Narcissist exists whereby every activity and relationship is defined by the hedonistic need to acquire the symbols of spiritual wealth, this becoming the only expression of rigid, yet covert, social hierarchies. It is a culture where liberalism only exists insofar as it serves a consumer society, and even art, sex and religion lose their liberating power.

There is just something elegant and cool about black, and with men a touch of the mysterious. I have to say I feel chic in black, especially a decent suit.

However since my fashion sense has all the adroitness of mixing orange and green and none of the tailoring I'll pass on what is suave and leave it to someone else. :)

Bang on trend that will be a first.

Dapper and chic, this whole fashion thing intrigues me. :)

See there's no recipes there, ever thought of using some herbs and spices? Sure you do, but hell fried, baked, shot into the sun by Jesus and his angelic choir to the halelujah chorus, anyone can cook pork like that. :)

I am obviously not suggesting that you simply take a pig and roast it slowly with no additional steps.
