Time: 5 min Cost: $50 Difficulty: Easy Peezey Badassery: Off the Charts FEEEEEEL THE TESTOSTERONE (Ladies, you have testosterone too, and I know you’re feeling it right now). Let’s be honest with ourselves. All of us at one point of our lives have had the desire to kick down a door. Whether it was when our little brother locked himself inside our room and messed around with your stuff, or when we where saving a helpless cat from a fire…its a basic human instinct to want to kick down doors (but don’t qoute me on that). “Its a basic human […]

#30) How to Cook a Steak

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Blog, Food, Season 1

Time: 10 min Cost: $10 Difficulty: Easy Manliness: Instantly Doubled The Home Field Advantage Compared to my young years,  I find that there are many things that when moved out, I have begun to finally appreciate. Things like clean clothes, a dog, no rent, free food, and food that is cooked for you make it almost worth it to sacrifice my recently gained independence…. almost. But all of that aside, the one thing that made the move more difficult than anything else (other than my parents unfaltering love and affection of course) was missing out on Dad’s steak. After 40 […]

Time: 2-100 hrs Cost: $2-$10,000 Difficulty: Mid Range Badassery: 10 Battle Cries out of 10 Childhood Dream….Accomplished As a kid, I probably spent a good portion of my youth running around with homemade wooden swords, waging wars against trees, and challenging random dandelions to duals. One of my fondest childhood memories is of me riding my bike, homemade numb chucks flailing above my head, and chucking the forcfully bound sticks at any innocent bystander foolish enough to get close (and by innocent bystander I mean trees) I have to admit…I was a massive medieval nerd. And after this experience with […]

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Blog, Building Useless Stuff, Music, Season 1

Time: 2 Hours Cost: $10-$50 Difficulty: Easy as Pie Badassery: Not really increased, not sure why I wrote this here…WATCH THIS! A Skill 3 Years in the Making Almost 3 and half years ago I discovered a lonely old baby grand piano and an aggressively used tiger guitar in Value Village. As per the usual, they were both hidden underneath a pile of aggressively chewed up barbie dolls, booger incrusted hot wheels and popular play sets from the late 90s’s. Being a reasonable man, I dug through the mess, promptly grabbed the instruments, payed my $5, took them home and […]

Time: 2-4hrs Cost: $50 Difficult: Easy Ability to Annoy Roommates: Increased Astronomically   The Peak of my Musical Career “Never in my life have I felt more a part of my essence as I did when I played upon the gentle sweet potato and crisp zuchinni. It was as if the pure organic nature of the vegetables took a hold me, and whispered into my ear inspiraaation“ Is what I would say if I was trying to get your attention. From a completely honest standpoint, this was probably the opposite of of the peak my musical career (which is not […]

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Athletics, Badassery, Blog, Season 1

Time: 1-5 hrs Cost: $0 Difficulty: Moderate Badassery: Oh helllll ya  Skijoring ski·jor·ing: the action of being pulled over snow or ice on skis by a horse or dog or a motor vehicle, as a sport or recreation activity.

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Blog, Music, Season 1

Time: 5-30hrs Cost: $0 Difficulty: Easier than you think Increase in Sexyness: Yuuuuup Breaking Down Barriers For the majority of my musical life I have considered myself a closet songwriter…someone who spends hours writing songs to never release them to the public.  And since the beginning of my songwriting, I have had the desire to share them with people, but have never really taken any actionable steps to do so. Various bullshit excuses such as “no-one is going to like it”, “I suck at singing”, and “there’s enough songs out there anyways, why do I need to perform?” would constantly […]
