Dashing 5th Avenue IV — Cirque du Soleil “Varekai” and Finca

Dashing 5th Avenue IV — Cirque du Soleil “Varekai” and Finca

Welcome to another entry in the “Dashing 5th Avenue” series, as always written by your classy writer pair (your Dashing gentleman (me) and your 5th Avenue woman, ms. Ashley Lunt). This month, we tackled something a little bit more unconventional and outside of the norm in terms of class and luxury topics: classy outings, events, and social gatherings. This encompasses things like parties, concerts or plays or media events, readings, dancing, and everything in between. It’s something that I feel most people…

Being a Gentleman IV: Brands, Designers, and Adverts OH MY!

Being a Gentleman IV: Brands, Designers, and Adverts OH MY!

    This entry in my “Being a Gentleman” series required some major research on my part as I’m not quite an expert on this particular area of gentlemanly style and class but the fact that it’s such an important piece of the modern gentleman today made it one that I wanted to learn more about particularly.

“We’re so lucky we’re still alive to see this beautiful world. Look at the sky. It’s not dark and black and without character. The black is in fact deep blue. And over there! Lights are blue. And blue in through the blueness, and the blackness, the winds swirling through the air… and then shining. Burning, bursting through! The stars, can you see how they roll their light? Everywhere we look, complex magic of nature blazes before our eyes.” – Vincent…

Classic Who and How to Get In To It: A Primer

Classic Who and How to Get In To It: A Primer

    Over the past couple of weeks, I have had a couple of my Whovian friends ask me a question that I felt would be a lot of fun to answer in a post. All of them have seen the New Series and its episodes, some of them even more than once. Most of them are extremely devout and love the concept of traveling through time and space with the Doctor and all of his adventures. Now most of…

Song Lyrics – “We Are Alive” by Fireflight

Welcome to another entry of my “Song Lyrics” series. Well Easter has come and gone and for me while I feel sad that my favorite holiday is over, I feel a strong sense of renewal and brightness not felt this strongly since the Festival of Colors a week ago and especially since Lent started more than 40 days ago. Easter and Spring is one of my favorite times of year for those reasons and the Resurrection of Christ is the…
