Awesome Men Throughout History: Howard Werth

This week’s installment of Awesome Men Throughout History focuses on someone you should have heard of, but probably haven’t; musician and record producer Howard Werth. Werth was the frontman of Audience, a British art rock band that achieved... 

The Self-Made Man: Bryan Dwyer

This week’s Self Made Man, pizza enthusiast and Pizza Brain owner Brian Dwyer, might come across a bit sillier and less driven than other entrepreneurs in this series. Maybe he is, at least by conventional standards, and that’s okay. Not everyone... 

Awesome Men Throughout History: Bernarr MacFadden

Some of TSB’s readers might think that current organic/gluten-free/juicing/etc. health fads are a modern thing brought on by fretful yuppies with too much disposable income. That’s only half-true, though; weird health and fitness trends have... 

The Self-Made Man: Jeph Jacques

Making a living as a working artist is ungodly difficult, on a scale that your average tech start-up couldn’t begin to imagine; while theirs can be a very stressful world too, at least techies’ skills are respected by the world at large. Try... 

Awesome Men Throughout History: Jean-Michel Basquiat

Jean-Michel Basquiat’s story is a familiar one in our culture; a brilliant artist who self-destructs and dies young. In his specific case, he died of a heroin overdose at 27, and only spent eight years as a proper working artist. I’m not here...

The Self-Made Man: Cactus Söderström

If you’re a PC gamer, you’ve probably played—or at least heard about—Hotline Miami, a top-down, 8-bit game in which you play a lone weirdo who takes on the entire Russian mob with a variety of weapons and crazy animal masks. It’s... 

Awesome Men Throughout History: Mark Hamill

Mark Hamill really shouldn’t be as obscure as he is. I mean, the guy was Luke Skywalker. In a sane and rational universe, the focal point of the original Star Wars trilogy shouldn’t, at the end of the day, be just another working actor. Well,... 

The Self-Made Man: Deron Beal

Anyone who works in the non-profit sector or the performing arts (or the huge overlap in between those two lines of work) has probably hit up Freecycle for something in the past six months. For those of you who work in industries where there’s actually... 

Awesome Men Throughout History: Terry Gilliam

This week’s Awesome Man Throughout History—Terry “The One American Guy In Monty Python” Gilliam—is a celebrated and revered film director who has made some classics (Brazil, Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas), some utter crap (The Brothers...
