What Makes a Man in 2016

The public perception of masculinity has changed quite a bit throughout the decades. For some, a man is simply someone who provides for themselves and their family a life of comfort and relative safety. In fact, if we’re talking about manhood in a strictly colloquial sense, the word today may not even be completely centered around gender. While it’s unfair to associate adulthood with only one half of the entire species, it’s impossible to deny that when we tell each other to “man up,” we’re really referring to a person’s maturity, rather than their efficacy as a particularly gendered member of society.  Read More

Iconic Men from Now and Then: Men Who Croon

It’s hard not to look up to somebody who spends their whole life up on a stage. Putting the literal meaning of that statement aside, let’s talk about the men who give us a framework for how to be men ourselves in terms of style, appearance, and personality.

It’s no secret that entertainers are quite possibly the cornerstone of American pop culture. Those who live their lives in the limelight form archetypes in our minds in their own image. After all, when a person makes entertainment their trade, it means that they specialize in creating our most impressionable moments. You might not remember your first teacher’s name or your current best friend’s favorite color 10 years from now, but you’ll never forget the people who help you escape to a different world that your own.

Few mediums provide this kind of escape and catharsis better than song. Films give us a story to dive into, and actors provide a character to relate to or despise, but a great song can make you transcend yourself, and a great singer can look like a saint or an angel when standing behind a microphone.

It’s funny how an art form that’s primarily focused on sound can produce such visually iconic styles, looks, and characters. Let’s talk about a few.
