So here is a little MANPEDIA social experiment. The group chat is something that dominates our messaging world with a new group set up up for almost every sector of our lives. They are places we share things, make plans and stay in touch with to name just a couple of reasons. So this is a little short term experiment to see how we communicate with a group of people that may never come in contact with each other but share a link through you. It’s a promotion of sharing, finding common ground and hopefully just some good old fashioned … Continue reading MANPEDIA MESSENGER LUCKY DIP


Man caves can come in all shapes and sizes. Whether it is built outside in the garage, behind a secret passageway beyond a bookcase or in the standard basement location, the man cave is your space. Man caves give the freedom to express our true selves. Man caves give us the space to enjoy football with the guys, a relaxing pool game or pure quietness to get extra work done. The benefits are endless, but before you go building your extravagant man cave, be sure to include these 10 necessary items all man caves absolutely NEED. It is most likely the … Continue reading MAN CAVE ESSENTIALS


The alarm is going off. If you don’t wake up right now, you’re going to be late and you’re boss will be mad. We all know this feeling and I don’t know anyone that looks forward to it. Maybe it’s time to escape the 9 to 5 and start enjoying your life.

That’s no way … Continue reading ESCAPE THE 9-5


Can you imagine living your life without music? It would be very hard to do so, as music has been hard-wired into our very existence as human beings. While everyone enjoys listening to good music, not many of us are what the world calls ‘musicians’- the ones with the ability to play a musical instrument. This could be due to not having the opportunity to learn as kids or simply due to lack of inclination or proper instruction. However, music is something that is never too late to learn. And here are 10 good reasons as to why everyone should … Continue reading WHY YOU SHOULD PLAY AN INSTRUMENT


Every now and then (or, if you’re a woman with opinions, every 5 minutes) men publicly and loudly start to lament the decline in chivalry. They take to Twitter, righteous in their fury, to declare ‘Can’t even hold a door open for women any more. Bloody feminazis! #ChivalryIsDead.’ These men do have a point. Chivalry IS dead. But not because men can’t hold doors open for women (although to be honest, I’ve never seen a feminist have a meltdown because a man was polite to her).

The death knell of the lads’ mag has sounded again strongly, with the announced closure of both FHM and Zoo magazine. The decision by publisher Bauer media follows the closure of Nuts in April 2014 and Loaded’s switch to an online-only format earlier this year.  The press release implies that this is a result of the inevitable switch in media habits to mobile and social. Certainly, there remains an online appetite for the type of “laddish” content the titles used to offer, as the success of websites such as The LAD bible reveal. The problem for FHM and Nuts is that these readers no … Continue reading DEATH OF LADS MAGS
