  • Household Hacks for the Modern Man

    There’s this misconception that straight dudes shouldn’t care about creating a comfortable, functional, and generally nice living space for themselves. Our culture stereotypes interior decorators as flamboyantly gay men and markets household fixtures and cleaning products to women. But that doesn’t let your average straight-dude-self off the hook. Maintaining your place can feel like a never-ending chore, but if you create productive habits, they will pay off. You don’t need to hire a cleaning person or bookmark Martha Stewart’s websites to keep your home looking on-point. Just as I mentioned about hygiene and appearance, you don’t need to uproot everything you’ve ever known about housekeeping to make an impact. Just pay attention to the right details. Trust me, this will come in handy if you want to bring someone home, if you know what I mean. Use your five senses to straighten up your space: Sight: Tidy up the clutter. If things are strewn across the floor or taking up unnecessary space on your counters, put them in a sensible place. FYI: Shoving crap under the bed or into your closet is not sensible, and it won’t help you later when you’re in a hurry and need your stuff. Do the more »

Suddenly your wobbly coffee table and “Scarface” poster just don’t seem to cut it anymore. On a related note, I’ve decided to redecorate my home theater in homage to my favorite film, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” The toilet in the bathroom adjacent to my den broke some weeks ago, and I’ve opted to not fix it, instead allowing the effluence to create an authentic New York underground ambiance.
