Those Sweet Old Blogging Blues

In Alaskana, Art, Cinema, Culture, Drink, Health, Music Reviews, Political, UAF on October 4, 2010 at 3:22 am

I plan on writing an actual update sometime early this week. However, before then, I wanted to throw out a few topics I plan on writing about which include health, journalism, music, and politics.

Why? Because I want to do something with the blog tonight/this morning but have no energy for anything investigative (i.e. that isn’t already in my head and doesn’t involve anything more then spellchecker and Google). You know the mood…where you want to feel productive, so you get away with “thinking” about being productive?

Yeah, it’s kind of like that.

Topics for future posts:

Health: Asthma; the Life Insurance process
Journalism: How to Write a Decent News Article; the Ethics of Journalism
Local Music Review: For both Feeding Frenzy and Good Dazes’ (Germ of Creation) new albums; Blurb about a buyers experience at the recent Record Expo.
Non-Local Music Review: Serj Tankian’s new album Imperfect Harmonies and Maroon5’s Hands All Over.
UAF: ASUAF Summer Senate Score Card; Photo slide-show of two university professors research.
State Politics: Scott McAdams and Lisa Murkowski position overviews (to match the one I did for Joe Miller).
History: What Norwegian Vikings Can Tell Us About Masculinity; something with Teddy Roosevelt since it’s his birthday this month.
Film: Maybe something on the Scandinavian Cinema Society I have recently formed with a fellow film enthusiast.
Drink: Brew Reviews-ala-the Northern Light

There are many other things I can and will write about. Some of them I haven’t even thought of yet!  I understand this post could be considered “lame”, but I try to view it as a “teaser” of future posts to come. Feedback is always appreciated.


Men’s Fall Fashion feat. Sam German

In Alaskana, Fashion, UAF on September 9, 2010 at 8:23 pm

It’s September again. That means (for many of you) it’s back to the academic grindstone. However, just because higher education can sometimes be a royal pain doesn’t mean you can’t at least look like (Alaskan) royalty. My good friend Sam was kind enough to sport some duds a few weeks back. Here are a few of the highlights.

Brown wool 'I.N.C.' sport coat // multi-colored handmade scarf // red cotton button-up shirt // silver class ring

'Silver Gulch Brewery' knit hat // black 'Eighty Eight' cotton button-up shirt // multi-colored scarf

Black 'Eighty Eight' button-up shirt w/stripes // wool Scottish checkered scarf // Irish tweed flat cap by 'Mavili's Hat' of North Vancouver

Gray wool Irish flat cap by 'Mavili's Hats' of North Vancouver // brown 'I.N.C.' wool coat // blue denim 'Levi' jeans // white 'Adidas' running shoes // multi-colored scarf

Whether you’re a new student or a returning one, there is absolutely no reason why a guy can’t look his best both in the classroom, at the office, or gallivanting around the quad. Say, does UAF even have a quad? Take a hint from me, when you look good you feel good. Simple as that.

Plus. it never hurts to break out a sport coat or a nice button-up from time to time. Besides, those t-shirts of yours could use a wash, no?
