    Prada Infusion d'homme.

    For quite a while now people have asked me for a fragrance that smells like a nice neutral triple milled soap. Something that smells like Williams or just plainly clean and without a typical coloney trying-hard nonsense. In the past, I was only able to recommend Speik Cologne or Puro Lino, but...

    Stand up comedy teacher routine.

    A while ago there was this youtube video of someone taking about the value of teaching; someone posted it in here, but I cannot find it.

    Audio Book Recommendations.

    I probably spend 8 hrs driving each week. Enough time to consume an audio book. What titles do you guys recommend? I just bought Freakonomics and The Andromeda Strain. They are not boring but I am half way through first one and it is yet to present something actually relevant. The second...

    The King is dead. Long live the King! Domenico Caraceni.

    How many of you guys have settled?

    I do not buy samples to try the latest and greatest cream. I have 3 creams and 2 soaps and they all work well. I have an HD, a Slant and a SS. After all this time, I can get BBS with any razor... It just needs a slight change in technique (angle/ direction of the stroke mostly). I have a feather...

    Engraving razors

    I was wondering where could I get my razors engraved? Which company would be able to do it? I would like to have some drawing and letters etched on my HD, Slant, feather and a couple of straights. The slat is gold plated so it may not be the best idea but how about the rest?

    Another newbie walking down the not-so-straight road.

    I would love to shave with a straight. I currently use a feather ac and get irritation free shaves. The thing I like the most about it is how easy it is to change the blade and get a shave ready razor. Obviously. But it is time to put the bladeholders on hold and get a real straight. The...
