Michael Williams of A Continuous Lean fame has a huge collection of old Kodachrome pictures and he’s kind enough to share them with the world. This beauty came from his Tumblr blog The Material Review.
Reminds me. I need to get my fishing license for the year…

30 Rock and Parks and Recreation are two of my favorite television shows. On Parks and Recreation, actor Nick Offerman plays Ron Swanson, head of the Pawnee Parks and Rec Dept. Ron is a conservative libertarian who loves woodworking, breakfast foods, hunting, and fishing, and he keeps a sawed off shotgun in his desk. Like the The Most Interesting Man In the World, Ron exudes the kind of over-the-top manliness that is both awesome and awesomely hilarious. In one episode, he presents his Pyramid of Greatness to the boy’s basketball team he coaches. Ron says the pyramid represents a “perfectly calibrated recipe for maximum personal achievement.” The pyramid, which satirizes basketball coach John Wooden’s Pyramid of Success, includes such gems as:
Body Grooming: Only women shave below the neck.
Old Wooden Sailing Ships: They’re beautiful
Perspiration: Only sweat during physical activity and love making. No emotional sweating.

The Library of Congress has posted a collection of over 700 photos of Civil War soldiers on Flickr.com. The collection includes portraits of both Union and Confederate soldiers. Most of the men in the photos are unidentified, so the Library of Congress is looking for help identifying them. Check them out. The photos are haunting and manly.

Mike from Tankfarm Clothing sent me this pic of Holt McCallany, star of FX’s new series Lights Out, wearing our Gentlemen’s Boxing tee. Pretty cool.
