Tuesday Dudesday: Books books books.

Physical Books … how old fashioned.
Being a steward of all things digital as I am it is a little weird that when it comes to books I really prefer the physical copy rather than the electronic version.
(Gasp)
I’m not sure what it is – maybe it’s because I stare at a computer screen for at least 8 hours in a day or maybe it’s nice to have something tangible in this world of digital relationships and text based conversations.
Too much?
Anyway there is this cool site I found a while ago called PaperBack Swap:
paperback_swap

PaperBack Swap allows you to post your books and trade other users for their books. How it works is you post your books and when someone wants it – you send it to them (pay the 2 dollars in postage) and they get your book. Once this transaction occurs you get a credit which allows you to request a book from a user and they in turn send it to you. I think when you first start you get one credit for free but I could be wrong.

I have used this service quite a few times and it is awesome for those who enjoy physical copies of books and don’t mind waiting a few days to receive them. Plus it’s basically free (minus postage).

They also have a CD Swap and a DVD Swap.

Check ’em out.

Tuesday Dudesday: Art of Manliness

Hi. My name is Jeremy and I’m a Google addict … there I said it.

Seriously I Google EVERYTHING. Anyway I was looking up how to stop wasting time on Facebook and actually get some work done (I tried to just not do it and that didn’t work) – Soooo my search brought me to an awesome article on an awesome site.

The site is called The Art of Manliness.

What’s it about you may ask?  Google it.  Just kidding.

“The Art of Manliness is authored by husband and wife team, Brett and Kate McKay… In our search to uncover the lost art of manliness, we’ll look to the past to find examples of manliness in action. We’ll analyze the lives of great men who knew what it meant to “man up” and hopefully learn from them. And we’ll talk about the skills, manners, and principles that every man should know.” (About page)

Be A Gym Hero.

Hello.

Is this thing on?

I’m Jeremy.

For some reason the GF thought it would be a good idea for me to write once a week on her blog. I think it was so you all would realize how awesome her writing is … kinda like that ugly friend pretty girls keep around.

That’s mean. Sorry.

Anyway onto the article. Most of my posts will probably be about technology because that’s all I do.  That and sports or something.

Oh Yea Article.

I’ve started going back to the gym semi regularly and lifting weights again after a 7 year hiatus so I needed a great way to track my reps/exercises etc and paper and pencil is to complicated for me for some reason.

Enter an App called GYM HERO.

Gym_Hero_App

It’s pretty sweet. My favorite part is that it tells you how much total weight you moved that workout – you’d be surprised how much work you’ve done – or maybe saddened by your pitiful numbers.

If you are looking for a great/simple way to track your exercises I’d check it out.

And I’m OUT!

(Drops microphone and walks away)

Tuesday Dudesday.

I have mentioned here and there that I don’t want to leave the men out of my blog. So, as a reminder, I will try my best to blog about man-friendly stuff on Tuesdays. Tuesday Dudesday.

The Good Men Project

The Good Men Project is a website dedicated to men’s lifestyles. It actually started as a documentary that highlighted the need for some kind of community/ongoing conversation for men.

The Good Men Project describes themselves as “a community of 21st Century thought leaders around the issue of men’s roles in modern life. We explore the world of men and manhood in a way that no media company ever has, tackling the issues and questions that are most relevant to men’s lives. We write about fatherhood, family, sex, ethics, war, gender, politics, sports, pornography, and aging. We shy away from nothing.” Read more in their About section.

What a cool concept.

What I like about this website is, while it is obviously focused on men, women can comfortably skim through it. If you take a look around, you will occasionally see women’s questions answered, tips that apply to both genders, and stories that anybody can appreciate.

If the site is a little overwhelming (it has a lot of information and categories), maybe just start with their blog.

Happy Tuesday Dudesday! Thankful for all the great dudes in my life 🙂
