Each week (give or take one here and there) I share three things I like – It could be a book, a movie, a podcast, an album, a photo, an article, a restaurant, a food item, a beverage, or anything else I simply enjoy and think you might too. You can find a whole pile of things, especially books, I like and recommend HERE.
1. Cast Iron Skillet
I bet you didn’t know that you could make bacon taste better than it normally does. Well, you can, and it requires no candying or seasoning or sigaring or carmelizing or anything. It just requires a cast iron skillet. The same goes for chicken and beef and cornbread and even pies. Cast iron is the magic implement that makes food cooked at home taste home-cooked. And, as a bonus, it is good for home defense too. You’ll never knock a burglar out with some Teflon coated aluminum thing.
2. Harry’s Razors
I have to shave about 1/3 as often as an average man and about 1/8th as often as a lumberjack type man, so you’d think I would care less about my shaving experience. In fact that means every shave is more memorable, like a trip to the dentist. It also means I always forget to buy razors when I need them (twice a year). Enter Harry’s Razors – high quality razors making the shave less miserable shipped automatically on a schedule that suits me, and they are priced reasonably too. On top of that their other products (face wash, after shave, shave cream, etc.) are high quality too. I never run out of razors and I dread shaving 47% less, and I smell good when I’m done.
3. Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison: An Oral History
50 years ago Johnny Cash recorded his most famous album – Live at Folsom Prison. The album is a classic, and the story behind it is captivating. THis Rolling Stone oral history is an incredible read detailing how the event came about and what happened there.
