M3 Black Bear Trailer Review: I Frankenstein

A new era of monster has arrived on the big screen, Frankenstein. A story that have been told and passed down for generation to generation about a mad scientist that wanted to created a monster from the flesh of deceased men and women. Director Stuart Beattie has taken on a significant challenge with this infamous monster story, but I'm glad he did its time to tell a new story that does not involve vampires or werewolves in everything. When I first looked at the trailer I was a little disappointed, not because the trailer was bad, but i wanted them to tell the story that we grew up with and read about, besides that the trailer looked wonderful and the graphics design looked great but no big wow factor people expect, but i will hold judgements until i see the movie in theaters and do a real detailed black bear review.

Hygiene Tips From A Nerdy Black Bear: Smelling Good

Nerdy Black Bear is hear to talk about scents, smelling good, and the products you can buy and use to accomplish a perfect natural man scent for yourself. Why have I brought up this topic? Well a lot of men out there want to smell good, but are having a hard time finding the right product for themselves. On the other hand, some men are just lazy and like walking around smelling like the walking dead but that's another post for another time. As men, we are primal  creatures. We go on our scenes, like the way things look, taste and smell. A wonderful smell is sometimes a first impression, and it's important to get it right.

Are Gay Men a Gay Man's Worst Enemy?

One of the wonderful things about the world we live in is that homosexuality is becoming more and more acceptable every day. What's more, people such as Dan Savage have had incredible success with campaigns such as "It Gets Better." Mr. Savage and his contemporaries continue spreading the message to adolescent and teenaged members of the LGBT community promising hope that the bullying and mistreatment of their them and their peers will eventually end once they leave their high school lunchrooms. However, what happens after you leave the walls you feel have closed you in for years is very rarely discussed. The truth is, the bullying doesn't end once you get your diploma, and it doesn't necessarily better. The faces of the people who make fun of you simply change.

The Proper Etiquette for Greeting a Married Same Sex Couple

A Victorian Double Breasted Waistcoat
So much has been discussed concerning the rights of same-sex couples to have their marriages legally recognized by their respective states that hardly a breath of celebration has been uttered concerning how we will formally introduce our new gay husbands into society. As gay marriage is legalized in more and more states across these United States of America it is appropriate that we pause to contemplate how to receive this new and exciting evolution of human freedom. In the 21 years since Essex Hemphill wrote “American Wedding” presaging a day in which gay marriages would be accepted, much has changed but the fundamental message of his 1992 poem was that clear and culturally relevant traditions should be established to distinguish the marriage of a man with another man.

A Straight, Southern, Christian Redneck on Homophobia

by Neal Wooten on Huffpost

I'm not judging homosexuals. The Bible clearly states that it's wrong, so these people are making a conscious choice to live a life of sin. That's why they can't be Christians, and if they're allowed to marry, it will destroy our society.

A Terrible, Tragic Game

The House leader was responding to an anonymous “senior administration official” who was quoted in a Wall Street Journal article, saying: “We are winning. ... It doesn’t really matter to us’ how long the shutdown lasts ‘because what matters is the end result.’ ”

(The White House press secretary, Jay Carney, distanced the administration from the boastful nature of that quote, referring to the president and a budget bill known as a continuing resolution in a tweet: “This is absurd. POTUS wants the shutdown to end NOW. Speaker can do that NOW by putting a clean C.R. to a vote. #JustVote”)

Top 10 Breaking Bad Episodes

You're goddamn right, we're giving you a top 10 list!

by Seth Amitin 

Breaking Bad is finished, but it will not be forgotten. The story of Walter White made a giant impact on TV and will be discussed and debated for years to come. Now that we've seen every single episode of Vince Gilligan's epic series, we've come up with our list of Breaking Bad at its finest. There were arguably no bad episodes of this show, but these ten stand out as something special. Several other episodes almost made this list, including "Fly", "Half Measures", "Full Measure", "A No-Rough-Stuff-Type Deal" and the series-ending "Felina." But as great as those episodes were, the following ten episodes were Breaking Bad at its very best.

Suffice to say, full spoilers for the entirety of Breaking Bad follow...
