Diagram of Geek Culture

Regarding passions, hobbies, preferences, etc, I've come to believe one thing: everybody's a geek about something. It's just that some areas, like sports, fashion, cars, celebrities, are more socially acceptable. But, knowing a lot about the things you're passionate about is awesome, and I'm glad folks get excited.

So, while I think it's only fair that most informed people own the geek title, I still think Julianna's concept map is tops.

25 Surprising Knitted Objects

created at: 12/07/2010

I've seen plenty of knitted and crocheted versions of real world things, and usually, the appropriate reaction is a warm, smiley feeling, rather than a shock.

But a knitted life-sized motorcycle? Illegal drugs? Hilter?!

Hipster Dinosaur Coloring Book

created at: 10/15/2010

Somewhere in the last few weeks, making fun of hipsters became more prolific than the irony-clad, mustache filled trend itself. Which was sorta funny for a bit, but at what point does the cultural response become even more pathetic than the ridiculousness of the subculture it mocks?

So, with that in mind, we at ManMade promise that this very post will be the latest hipster mocking piece we do. 

Well, unless its very, very funny.

20 Mustaches That Changed History

"When in the course of human events a mustache comes along that truly changes things, Aaron Perlut is there to celebrate."

Perlut is the chairman of the American Mustache Institute and is currently coordinating the AMI's third annual "Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year" award. The self-proclaimed Dr. of Nuclear Mustachology was recently interviewed by the Atlantic monthly, saying, 

As a young man I grew up surrounded by mustaches in my family, but I was always intimidated to grow them, even though I could from a very young age, because of the public pressures against it--because they weren't cool, they weren't hip. There was a certain stigma attached to people with mustaches, that you weren't professional or intelligent, and I commited myself to working for an organization that battled against that... [We hope to achieve] an equal playing field for people of Mustached American heritage. I got off the phone earlier today with a gentleman who told me he was told that he could have a job that he wanted, if he shaved his mustache....We recently saved the job of a young man who was a college student working at a restaurant, whose employers told him that he would either shave his mustache or lose his job that he was using to pay his tuition at the University of Georgia in Athens. There is a pattern of discrimination against people who are different from whatever the norm might be at the time in this country, and facial hair is no exception.
Didn't think facial hair choices could incite so much injustice, didja?
