Why do men’s cologne smell like concentrated urine?

If 2012 really is the end of our time, I’m fairly certain Pestilence of the Four Horsemen would be wearing Eternity by Calvin Klein while War would be using Armani Code Black.

I can’t be the only one who feels this way whenever passing by a heavily scented man or a particularly obnoxious stall at the mall. In fact, I never really saw a reason why you would need aftershave and cologne in the first place. Doesn’t the first take care of the next?

Do women really enjoy this pungent musk or has the constant marketeese on TV, magazines and the internet been translated into a weird form of double-think that smelling like the rear end of a buffalo was somehow sexy? That said, I only use one and only one kind of scent and I think it should be the standard that all others be judged by.


The end.


Site of the Week: Unibrow Club

I’m all for social acceptance, especially when the detraction is over something stupid. Imagine my glee when I came across the Unibrow Club.

From their Mission page :

At Unibrow Club we try to answer all those ancient questions such as what is unibrow, what is the difference between unibrow and monobrow, does tripplebrow exists and so on. Get all your unibrow questions answered here.

I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a “tripplebrow”. Suddenly I don’t feel so bad about having South Asian “hair” genes.

Damn you, girly hands!!!

This shouldn’t be bothering me as much as it does, but what can I say, I sometimes take comments about the way I look way too seriously. I’ve just been told, I have “girly hands”. I really didn’t need to hear that from a girl.

I didn’t see this coming at all as I’ve always been under the impression that I actually have the hands of an 80-year-old man with veins everywhere and crocodile skin thanks to years of sun damage and lack of moisturizer (cuz’ that stuff’s for wusses).


Trying to wrap my head around this, I tried breaking this down.


I also have very skinny fingers for some reason, which I thought added to the creepy Crypt Keeper look, but it was all in vain it seems.

Must get gloves...

Despite the awesome fur (thank you South Asian genes) and a badass Adam’s apple, not only do I often get mistaken for a girl over the phone, I now have “girly hands”?! Ugh!

Site of the Week: Materialicious

After a looong delay in posting due to other affairs, we bring in the new year here at Intentionally Left Ugly with a site that displays what I believe to be the most honest expression of progress and functionality. This is a site that can please the eyes of all beholders.


Shelter, Materials & Objects

Following the words of William Morris,

If you want a golden rule that will fit everybody, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.

The sentiment is also remarkably similar to my programming philoshopy which ingratiated this site so much to me.
