    Gents, after my poor experiences with Pandora the last few months I have moved over to Spotify and it seems to stream easier on my mobile and does have not the wonky errors I was getting with Pandora. What I need is a primer on how to get started. The interface for Spotify is quite a bit...

    Pandora App Issues.

    Gents, if any of you use the music streaming app Pandora, please feel free to offer up an opinion. Lately the app is going a bit nutters on me. I am sure the problems began after the last update. For starters, it will not truly close. It goes into a sort of minimised version at the top of the...

    PayPal Login Issues At Wish

    Geo. F. Trumper Eucris and Spanish Leather Creams In Jars

    Gents, don't know if this is news or not. I did not see a thread on the front page. I just got an email from the English Shave Company announcing these scents in Trumper's cream in jars. I am a fan of both scents but rarely use creams anymore. One thing I found interesting is from the photos...

    Revisted An Old Friend Today - Qed American Gent

    Well lads, before we get started on this soap, let me say straight away this is no review. The soap is unobtanium. Charles informed me a couple of years ago the line was discontinued due to retirement of the supplier. More's the pity because Qed's glycerin soaps were the best of their kind I...

    Review-The Predator(2018)

    Gents, I do not typically review movies. I am not a cinema 'enthusiast' so to speak. I do not really understand the nuts and bolts of film making. I watch movies that look interesting. So before you read further, be prepared for some blunt wording and opinion. First, this movie should have...

    Need New 7 Inch Tablet - Slim Pickings

    Gents, my old Samsung Tab 4 7.0 is getting...well lets just say slower than mud and more and more I get the dreaded 'not compatible with your devise' when I attempt to install apps.

    In The Workshop-Help Me Organise The Garage

    Gents, the recent tool box thread started me thinking about our own mess in the garage of our home. Like most home owners, I am none too keen on constantly organising our living space. It takes discipline to maintain it. Anyroad, here we go. The biggest issue aside from getting the excess...

    Ariana & Evans Questions

    Gents, it seems as if we are treated to some new soaps or at least some new versions of differing lathers every couple of weeks. This is both good and possibly bad. Good the artisan makers are still formulating and keeping up with trends and wants from the users. Bad becuase, I cannot keep up...

    In The Workshop - New Cordless Drill

    Gents, this maybe should have went in the score forums but since it is not shave related I posted here. Today I was mucking around over at Toolguyd.com (btw, a great tool blog that is updated daily) and they pointed an Amazon deal of the day for a 12 volt Bosch cordless drill. Not only their...

    Yardley Solid Brilliantine - Pics

    Gentlemen, last week West Coast Shaving had a 35 percent off clearance sale sonI picked up a jar of this old brand's hair dressing.

    2 Band Vs 3 Band...Again

    Alright lads, I am still not 100% sure I get what the difference is between the two. Oh I get the physical/visual difference. It is plain to see. I am simply not sure of what it means in lathering use. I ask because I am getting ready to buy a new brush and have a few things in mind that may...

    2 Yr. Update - Todd's 60-54 Weight Loss Plan

    I wanted to pass along my recent experiences in Indianapolis regarding ordering drinks.

We stayed in the...
