Helping Men Survive the 3rd Week of September
Every week here at The Dignified Devil, we spend a lot of time thinking about how we can help the modern man survive the modern world. This week of course is no different. Today we explore the apps, the tools, the gadgets and the books that will enlighten the modern man as he navigates his way through his week. These are the things that are worth a man’s time, money, attention and space in his Junk Drawer.
The next generation of the computer that also makes phone calls, if you still do that kind of thing, arrives September 21. iPhone 5 is slimmer, lighter, and longer-lasting than its predecessors and features a stunning 4-inch Retina display. 4G-LTE compatibility and an upgraded processor offer a significant increase in network access speeds. The phone that changed the industry continues to set the standard for design, performance, and sophistication.

Ole Smokey MoonShine
By Ole Smokey Moonshine
Once upon a time, self-respecting men drank whiskey. The folly that is our obsession with light beers sold on TV in the most ridiculous of marketing schemes discredits the status of the modern man. Our forefathers, rugged men of the unsettled American terrain, extracted their living from the earth and celebrated their independence with a dignified adult beverage. When the softer sensibilities of city-dwelling lawmakers imposed themselves upon these pioneers, they took to the mountains and defied the law, creating the legacy and myths of moonshine. Honor your hard-won heritage with Ole Smokey Moonshine, a throwback to the early days of Tennessee’s mountain distilleries. The first federally licensed distillery in the history of East Tennessee, Ole Smokey captures the character of its time and place with its strong flavor and lingering effect. Chase it will one of those watered-down beers until you learn to enjoy drinking like a man.
By Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan is on the short list of most influential musicians to ever walk among men. Ludwig Van, Mozart, the Beatles, whatever the order is, Dylan is in that rarest of genius. His latest collection of compositions show the fire is burning hotter than ever in the 71 year-old master. Tempest overflows with rage and blood, darting across the landscape of a rebellious life meted out with unrepentant cruelty. Why should you listen? We’ve already explained.
