The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.

Just picked up this gem and it's a breath of fresh air. Finally, a lifestyle improvement book that doesn't hinge on flowery, non-sensical, anecdotal phrases about turning lemons into lemonade or some other fruit into a tasty beverage. This book tells it like it is. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it."

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life. It's pretty inexpensive and pretty enjoyable to get through. I highly recommend picking it up.

But if you prefer, feel free to read through some hot garbage like The Secret so you can just pretend life is full of rainbows and unicorns. Your call.

rodney mullen.

A friend of mine is convinced that skateboard style is going to come back into the fashion spotlight in the very near future. I sincerely hope that doesn't include Volcom cargo shorts and puffy dvs sk8er shoes.

However, given that there are a few solid brands that are taking part of the skate community like Brixton, nike, and adidas, there may be hope.  

In honor of this hope, here's a rad new video of rodney mullen.

mint bands still...

I've moved twice in the last year, which means I'm still randomly coming across things I'd put somewhere and forgotten about. Found my mint bands from over a year ago and...

they still smell amazing!!! are you kidding me? Over a year and still glorious? Still filling the air with phenomenal scent! Sniffing one is like waking up on top of a mountain. For $2.99, these little guys are well worth your money and sooo much cheaper than cologne. Buy them. Buy them all. Buy all the mint bands.

Click here to visit the mint bands site and buy them all.

you should be able to save your own life: five fitness benchmarks.

The art of manliness put out this little article and it's kind of awesome. I mean, as you start getting older, you need to put your fitness goals into perspective. Accept the fact that you'r enot going to be Mr. Universe, and therefore, don't need to be able to benchpress 500 pounds. You're not going to be an Olympic distance runner and probably don't need to be able to run two marathons back to back. Your biceps probably don't need to be bigger than your waist and you probably don't need to be taking 12 supplements to get you jacked.

Let's take a step back into reality and focus on some basic skills that could potentially help you save your own life someday.

Every Man Should Be Able to Save His Own Life: 5 Fitness Benchmarks a Man Must Master

In 1926, strong man and physical culture enthusiast Earle Liederman wrote a book calledEndurance. In it, Liederman makes the case that every man should be physically fit enough to save his own life in an emergency. He sets out five fitness benchmarks that indicate whether a man is up to this task. None require you to be able to bench press 500 pounds or have six pack abs. Rather, the benchmarks focus on having the strength and endurance to run, swim, or pull yourself to safety. If you’re looking for a fitness goal, the five fitness benchmarks Liederman lists are a good place to start.

“Every man should be able to save his own life. He should be able to swim far enough, run fast and long enough to save his life in case of emergency and necessity. He also should be able to chin himself a reasonable number of times, as well as to dip a number of times, and he should be able to jump a reasonable height and distance.

A man should be able to...

Swim at least half a mile or more

 

Run at top speed two hundred yards or more

 

Jump over obstacles higher than his waist

 

Pull his body upward by the strength of his arms, until his chin touches his hands, at least fifteen to twenty times

 

Dip between parallel bars or between two chairs at least twenty-five times or more

 

...If he can accomplish these things he need have no fear concerning the safety of his life should he be forced into an emergency from which he alone may be able to save himself.”

Better get started on that new fitness regime.

wardrobe.

 

“To discuss a man’s wardrobe is really to discuss a man’s life. For the kind of clothes he has in it reveals his way of life; and their condition and degree of fashionableness will show his character…”

abc's of Men's Fashion 47.


"Fashion is so close in revealing a person’s inner feelings and everybody seems to hate to lay claim to vanity so people tend to push it away. It’s really too close to the quick of the soul. Vain trifles as they seem, clothes have, they say, more important offices than to merely keep us warm. They change our view of the world and the world's view of us. Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live. Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment."
- Stella Blum, Virginia Woolf, Gianni Versace, Alexander McQueen

kinfolk volume 7.

Kinfolk is releasing volume 7 and it's another beautiful adventure into the world of the people and places they feature. I really dig this issue because it has motorcycles in it, but not in the way you expect. I would have never thought to pair motorcycles with the writing of Walt Whitman, but Kinfolk did. It actually works quite nicely and the two fit together perfectly. I enjoyed it and it made me want to get outside and ride.

With many other features, like the crab fishing pictured above, this issue of Kinfolk delivers. I've got a few more flip throughs and reads to get through before I put this issue down and move onto my other magazines. If you're interested in getting your hands on volume 7 you can pre-order it from their website here. Volume 7 drops in the beginning of March. So buy now, let it slip form your memory and then let it surprise you when it shows up.
