More Bite, than Bark

The term, "Jack of all trades, and a master of none" needs very little interpretation. I think of a middle-aged man in worn out work boots, holey jeans, and a cheap stained t-shirt with a pack of Marlboro Reds protruding slightly from his pocket. A beat up old tool bag with well used, but sharp and precise tools in his grip... Hes a man that can get it done. You remember what a bargain his labor prices are, as you turn the other cheek to his short comments and surly disposition. Finding a solution quickly and getting straight to work, you try to force from your mind that he didn't pull a permit like the expensive Journeyman you spoke to, would have.

CATS IN THE BAG

I worked my ass off to get where I am today, and everything I buy I need it to earn its keep. There is not any room disposable goods. But therein arises a problem - quality goods that are built to last are really expensive, and there are many goods that are labeled as premium brands that aren’t exactly all that durable either

HOUSE OF THE GODS

The word Tepui [te’pwi] means “house of the gods” to the indigenous people who inhabit the Gran Sabana. Table top mountains or mesas found in South America especially in Venezuela and western Guyana, these mountains can tower up to 1000 meters above the forest floor below. Because of the significant difference in altitude from the surrounding area, they are known as “ecological islands” having a very different climate from the ground forest… Among these, is Mount Kukenam…

A brief history… On June 8th of 2002, the Hayman Fire (the largest wild fire in Colorado’s history) was started by a US Forestry Technician who claimed she was burning a letter from her estranged husband. Other evidence came to light as the investigation continued to her inevitable prosecution, but the damage was done and it was extensive.

EDC PART 3: THE GOLD STANDARD OF AMERICAN BADASSERY

Simplicity is always a good standard to stay behind. the simpler things are, the easier they are to fix and stay onto of, because everything requires maintenance of some sort. so if its easy to fix, and stay on top of it should in turn be reliable as well, right?

EDC PART TWO: IT PUT THE LOTION ON THE SKIN

Leather is unique. It’s kind of hard to describe how cool it is, especially when its well made. Look at Steve McQueen, he wore a leather jacket all the time and he was just a badass. Hell, you could have a total piece of shit in your possession and it would still be cool, because its leather. That said though, the coolest pieces of leather are hand made, whether it be with overgrown sewing machines or through the physical labors of our digits: someone still made it, someone cared.

JUICING LIKE HULK HOGAN

Recently I acquired a tool that tames the struggle between phone use and battery life. The Mophie juice pack air phone case packs in an extra battery at no expense to weight, size or even looks.
