Cowboy Coffee: The Ins and Outs

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from The Young Gentleman’s Guide here! Yes, I know this is going to be yet another article about coffee, but I’m a coffee snob, so sue me! In any case, today, I want to go into a bit more detail about one specific method that I went over in The Gentleman’s Guide to Brewing Coffee. That method is cowboy coffee. There was a lot more detail about the method that I wanted to go over, but I only had so much time to do so in an article with four other entries included. So today, I wanted to go into more detail about this coffee brewing method, and also address some of the misconceptions that people have made about it. So, without any further delay, let’s get started!

What to Look for in a Girlfriend

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So in today’s article, I’m going to try and answer a question that is admittedly extremely difficult to answer. What should a gentleman look for when looking for a girlfriend? As mentioned just now, this can be a very difficult question to answer since a lot of what a man will find attractive in a woman is subjective. However, there are certain traits that I believe many of you young gentlemen reading should be looking for when they’re looking to find a nice young lady to date. These will not be physical traits since like I said, what a man may find physically attractive is generally subjective; what I’ll be talking about today are more subtle behaviors, attitudes, and personality traits that any young gentleman should keep an eye out for when looking for a young lady to date. So before this article turns into a full-length novel, let’s get started!

5 Underrated Composers Every Gentleman Should Listen To

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! To start, I would like to apologize for not posting anything for so long. I’ve been so incredibly busy since I just started a teaching credential program that has been eating up almost all of my time. While I will continue to be even more busy with it in the coming months, I’ll try to continue to keep posting as often as I can. Moving on from that, in today’s article, I’m going to list five (5) composers that every gentleman should listen to at least once, as well as some of my favorite pieces that they have written. I’m going to avoid listing those select composers that everyone has heard of or whose peices are more popular in the mainstream, such as Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, or Sousa. I’m going to try to list certain composers that not as many people have heard of. On top of that, I’m going to try to list composers from various eras of music instead of having all of them come from one era. So without any further delay, let’s get started!
