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... 

The Self-Made Man: Greg Anderson

TSB has looked at guys who’ve started their own record labels before, and we generally agree that making any kind of mark in that business—especially considering what the Internet has done to/for music—requires you to be an extremely dedicated... 

Awesome Men Throughout History: Andrew Lersten

If you’re into weird music like I am, the Internet might as well be your best friend. Even the most unlistenable, experimental noise/music projects have some kind of web presence: a Bandcamp page, a Tumblr, a Soundcloud account, something. It’s... 

The Self-Made Man: Milton Hershey

As someone who eats a lot while he writes, I have become very familiar with Hershey’s products over the years. If only I’d paid that kind of attention to the company’s history, because its founder—one Milton S. Hersey—was a classic,... 

Awesome Men Throughout History: Auguste Rodin

When it comes to sculpture, most of our frames of reference are pretty narrow. If it weren’t for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, names like Michaelangelo and Donatello would have virtually no footholds in the popular consciousness. That’s... 

The Self-Made Man: Jack Daniels

TSB has never done a formal poll on the subject, but it’s probably a reasonable assumption that some of our readership likes to drink Jack Daniels whiskey. Quite a few of our Awesome Men Throughout History have been fans of it, most famously Lemmy... 

Awesome Men Throughout History: Crazy Otto

More than any other era, the 1950s was full of novelty music. That’s not to say that other eras didn’t have their share of strange one-hit-wonders and songs that were popular because they were momentarily amusing, rather than good; hell, we... 

The Self-Made Man: Larry Jeter

Unlike a lot of TSB’s past Self Made Men, Larry Jeter isn’t someone many of our readers have heard of unless they live in Baltimore. Even then, it’s doubtful that they’ve heard of him. Which is a shame, because Jeter boasts some... 

Awesome Men Throughout History: Ernest Hogan

Unless you’re a ragtime enthusiast, you’ve probably never heard the name Ernest Hogan. Even then, it’s a longshot. After all, the man’s primary accomplishments as an entertainer happened over a century ago. Hell, he died over a...
