Babes. Cars. Suits. Beards. Bacon. Leather. Babes again. Beer. These things and more can all be found on Dudepins.com, the site for men and manly interests. You know Pinterest – where you can keep virtual scrapbooks of your most coveted items from around the web? Well, it’s a great place, but there’s one problem with it for those of us with a Y chromosome: Almost everything posted to the site is female-oriented. Wedding dresses, recipes, jewellery, craft projects, fluffy animals, etc. All of those are great, but they don’t get a man’s motor running quite like a montage of explosions, engines, guns, whiskey, jets, meat, and sports. Dudepins delivers all this and more.
Here is a brief guide on how to use the site:
Start by putting on a three-piece suit, pour yourself a tumbler of 18-year-old single malt scotch (neat), settle into a leather armchair by a roaring fire (in an oak paneled library, of course), and fire up your unreasonably high-powered computer. Get yourself over to Dudepins.com, sign up, and install the ‘Post Up’ button to your browser. With this button, you can now grab pics and videos from across the web to share with your bros.
Now take a break, wash down a watermelon-sized smoked meat sandwich with two pints of Guinness, and ‘Post-up’ some manly images to one of your ‘Montages’ – the Dudepins equivalent of ‘pinning’ things to a Pinterest ‘board’. Choose images that show your good taste, gentlemanly savvy, and testosterone-fuelled affinity for all things masculine.
Now get changed into some torn-up jeans (they’re torn from years of hard use, not because you bought them that way), grow a full beard in five minutes, throw on the trusty leather jacket that you’ve had since you were eighteen, and jump over eight schoolbuses end-to-end on your Harley. Then go back to your computer and create a montage of your favourite motorcycles.
Now go paragliding off the top of the Matterhorn and land on the back of an elegant stallion. Gallop into the nearest town, stop a rebel insurrection using only your bare hands and prodigious guile, and rescue a billionaire princess who is also a Nobel prize-winning physicist and Victoria’s secret model from the rebels’ evil clutches. Then drop into an internet café and purchase something on the Dudepins shop, because sometimes you just need swag (and it’s not just any swag, it’s trending swag).
Now that you know how to use the site, I must say that like all manly things, the site isn’t perfect: the navigation isn’t as intuitive as it could be, and the mechanics of the ‘post-up’ button take a little getting used to. But it has a lot going for it, not the least of which is the visually appealing main page with an almost overwhelming amount of desirable stuff for men to drool over. If you can take a break from your busy life of international espionage, professional sports, and hunting trophy moose, be sure to check out Dudepins. Drop us a comment to let us know how you like it.
