Art of Manliness Weekly Link Roundup: Cake and Mates of State Edition

Posted By Brett & Kate McKay On July 25, 2009 @ 12:53 pm In Roundup | 6 Comments

This weekend is the annual D-fest music festiva [1]l in Tulsa. Kate and I are going tonight, and I’m pretty stoked about the line up. Two of my favorite bands will be playing: Cake [2] and Mates of State [3]. Many of you have probably heard Cake before. They sing “Going the Distance” which is probably played at every sports event in America. But there’s definitely more to Cake than than one song. Check out Comfort Eagle [4]. I think it’s their best album. Mates of State is a husband and wife duo that has a sound that’s hard to describe. It’s definitely mellow and chill and sort of nostalgic.

Alright, let’s take a look at some links:

Jayson at Revolutionary Man [5] posted a great article on the purpose and value of men’s groups [6]. He followed that post up with a good rundown on how to start a men’s group. [7] If you haven’t already, make sure to subscribe to Jayson’s blog [8]. He’s a fantastic writer and puts out interesting and useful content for men.

Trent at The Simple Dollar [9] has a fantastic series going on called “Trent’s 14 Rules of Money. [10]” The most recent rule was “Stop Trying to Impress Other People.” [11] Couldn’t agree more.

Leo Babatua at Zen Habits [12] has put out another e-book called Essential Motivation Habits [13]. If you feel like you’ve been in a rut lately, definitely pick up the book. Lots of great info in it.

According to a survey of British women, mechanics have the manliest occupation. [14] Hmm… maybe it’s time you learn a manual skill. [15]
