Manly Products Have Manly Names—I think...

Wouldn't you want to smell like an artic sea fresh glacier? I totally would.


If you ever find yourself bored at any type of grocery or department store, here's a game you can play. Go to the body wash/shampoo aisle and read the names of the products, whoever finds the strangest name, wins. Personally, I think men's products take the cake on this one. Don't believe me? See for yourself.

1. Charcoal and clean


Yes. Body wash gets you clean. If it didn't, I would be concerned as to why it was marketed as such a product. Body + wash = clean. Right? So why does it need to be explained in the fragrance name? I don't get it.

2. You


So does this smell like you? Or me? Or Chris Hemsworth? Maybe Cole Sprouse? (Don't ask me why those were the first two male celebrities that popped into my head, okay? Okay. Moving on.) Such a vague name for a personal product, if you ask me. Or is that the point? Is this supposed to seem personal? I think I'd prefer to smell charcoal clean, thanks.

3. Cool Charge


I imagine this one is meant to make you feel refreshed but all I can think about it batteries. Does anyone want to smell like a battery? What do batteries even smell like? Go sniff one and let me know.

4. Dark Temptation


Ooooh. We're getting mysterious now. If this is meant to make guys feel they're the cool guy from the movies with his hair slicked back, leather jacket and only mutters under his breath most of the time, then yes. This works but if that's not what this company was going for, then I'm not too sure what they were.

5. Black


Compared to what? White? Blue? Green? Yellow? Do colors even smell like anything? If so, is this what black is supposed to smell like? How do they know? A lot more questions than answers on this one.

6. Chill Black


So the same as black, but just cold. Got it.

7. Snake Peel


You know the skin that snakes shed that sometimes can be found around your yard if you happen to live in a wooded area with a few stone walls? Is that what this is? Or are we going for more of a banana vibe?

8. Sensitive Shield


​All I can think of is captain America whipping out his "sensitivity shield" in battle and then just bursting out into tears. Definitely not what they were going for.

9. Fresh Awake


Again. Body + wash = clean, which also = fresh. I know the whole world likes to market products that say what they do but common sense people.

10. Aqua Impact


Thank god, my aqua is impacted. I don't know what I would do without some impacted aqua. What does that even mean, by the way? Does anyone know?

I can't be the only one who sees this stuff and laughs at the ridiculousness. Do guys even pay attention? Do any of you care what you wash yourself with or as long as you don't smell like a wet dog who's rolled in its own poop, you're cool with smelling like a dark ice mountain rock cliff? Even if that makes no sense, what so ever. Genuinely curious.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
