Manly Man Shows

Man do I love shows featuring men doing mean jobs. As I write this I'm watching Ax Men the latest in these shows where I see "green horns" that are a thousand time tougher than I'll ever be. (Thank goodness for showbiz.) One of the sickest loggers in this show is Jay Browning who lost his hand at the THUMB...
The show keeps threatening that someone is going to die or something. So in way it's like LOST.These men are fearless in the woods. The chop and cut with the sickest precision and they can walk across a fallen tree like it's nothing. 
I on the other hand am not so confident striding through the trees.
Yeah. Climbing up to take that picture was the easy part.
Not depicted was me crouching down on my hands and knees to get down. 

Deadliest Catch comes back in about two weeks. It's the original and still my favorite. I've already set my DVR to record the reruns that are going to be leading me up to the premiere. 

And man when is Ice Road Truckers coming back?!


Steve said...

Yeah, he's pretty tough. I couldn't run a chainsaw w/ one hand and a claw.

Can't wait for Deadliest Catch, saw the commercial for it the other day, always enjoyable.

I need to catch s1 of ice road truckers, never watched it but heard really good things about it.

Survivorman FTW!

Geez, I'm missing "Ax Men" already? Shows how much TV I've been watching lately. I do love "Deadliest Catch", "Man vs. Wild" and "Survivorman", though.

Your "Ax Men" story reminds me of my great-grandmother, who lost the top of three fingers in a corn husking machine and still managed to do some of the loveliest embroidery and quilting I've ever seen. Tough? You betcha. In a "Steel Magnolias" kind of way.

I've read that the new season of "Ice Road Truckers" begins on Tuesday, April 3rd. I can't wait!!

Hehe, wow!

The rock is amazingly shaped! =P

And what can I say, I love those manly type shows too! Hehe, haven't heard of Ax Men but Deadliest Catch is amazing!

Anyway, theres a new show out here in England, it was made in America. Heard of Storm Chasers? You gotta watch it, it's amazing!

twisby said...

"So it's sort of like LOST"

... hahahahahahaha. Remember when they threatened someone would die, and showed pictures of Jin and Sawyer and Claire, and then it was just stupid Karl? We were all, "ABC, you dramatic little bitch-- and listen, taking three tylenol and scratching yourself with a plastic knife isn't going to make us feel sorry for you this time," and then we had to wait 6 weeks for a new episode. Remember?

Miss Scarlett said...

Thank goodness for Steve's comment - I was trying to understand how you lose your hand at the thumb...

Deadliest Catch stresses me out and all I'm really thinking is, if people just stopped fishing we probably have enough tinned tuna to go for a few decades the world over. Have you ever seen those aisles in Costco? And then those guys could just go home.

The whole point of the show whizzes right past me. And I can't watch Ax Men because I hate loggers. It's irrational but true.

i still can't believe it took eight hours to convince you to finally jump down. i can't believe you held your pee for that long.

Heather (a.k.a. Bella) said...


I love to hike, and once my boyfriend and I hiked up to a water fall in Olympic National Park. The hike up was OK, but going down, the trail was narrow, slippery and super steep. I tripped and fell, and the only thing keeping me from falling over the edge was that my 6'4" boyfriend grabbed me and pulled me back ontop of him.


Topanga said...

This is how Ax Men in Nova Scotia deal with trees. No need for unnecessary cutting tools here. We just knock trees over with our amazing Canadian savate!

James Hernandez said...


Your comments almost brought tears to my eyes, almost! Oh yes who is afraid of death? I love being Canadian, hate living in Tally where there is no snow to challenge my driving skills (read: I'm blind as a bat so in snowy conditions I drive wonderfully).

Shiro said...

That place is look more like the forest of Blair Witch proyect XD

Honeybell said...

Yay! You know I've been waiting with baited breath for the phallus.

I love Deadliest Catch . . . and I have to mention my undying love and adoration for the narrator, Mike Rowe. He also hosts Dirty Jobs, another favorite. (just don't tell Mr. Honeybell about the love/adoring part, ok?)

StarbucksIsMyCrack said...

"Ax Men" is awesome. Can be gruesome at times lol but that's cool. Can't wait for "Deadliest Catch" to start back up though, it's definitely my favorite among "Ice Road Truckers", "Lobster Men", and "Ax Men".

By the way, here's a hilarious blog you should check out: www.midgetmanofsteel.blogspot.com

I laughed til' I damn near pissed myself lol.

Ice Road Truckers is one of my faves for sure! I will have to check out Ax Men

Kris said...

Isn't the Discovery Channel awesome? I love Dirty Jobs and When Dinosaurs Roamed the Earth.

redelf said...

WOOT!!! Deadly Catch!! I love that show!!

Have you seen Living with the Mek? I love that one too. I could never run around in the jungles without a bra. lol

Dirtiest Jobs is pretty good too.

Z said...

Deadliest Catch is hardcore. Sucks you can't really bet on the outcome anymore now that it's based on quotas.

Jess said...

All of those shows are pretty much amazing. I am so about the Ax men. I love his hardcore, like, mechanical hand.

Karen said...

I <3 ice road truckers...Alex is def my fav..hopefully he'll be back. I love how he laughs at his own jokes!

Radioactive Tori said...

Ice Road truckers was my favorite! My son watched it with us and always hoped he'd see them fall in. He's only 4, so he has time to get the hang of empathy and not wishing bad things to happen to other people, right?

Geoff Gentry (aka xforce11) said...

Watching old eps of Deadliest Catch on Disc. I like Ax Men too. I would bet on June for Ice Road Truckers

Unknown said...

My husband loves Ice Road Truckers. Oh, the drama... But my great-grandfather was a logger. He lost his legs up in northern Wisconsin.

Sonia said...

Oh man! I love Ice road truckers!! alex was my favorite!! love his laugh ! :) I can't wait for the new season to begin! Maybe this season Hugh will get his ass kicked! TEAM ALEX! hahaha

Becky said...

Oh my gosh- are all men the same? MY hubby is obsessed with the same shows!

sneakers shoes She continued,
"Why...? Don't you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?" Then he answered, "No, there is no need for that anymore......"
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, discount nike shoes"Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! nike shox r4 You haven't been searching for one for the past years, right?" The man looked up, as if he has struck gold, his face beamed and looked directly at the drunken girl. tn dollarHe replied, "Yes......you are right! I haven't been looking for anyone for the past years."
With that, the man darted across the floor and out the door, cheap nike shoesleaving the lady in much bewilderment. He finally realized that he has already found his dream girl, and she was.....the Vancouver girl all along! The drunken lady has said something that awoken him.
All along he has found his girl.nike tennis shoes That was why he did not bother to look further when he realized she was not coming back. It was not any specific girl he was seeking! cheap nike shoxIt was perfection that he wanted, and yes.....perfection!!
Relationship is something both parties should work on. Realizing that he had let away someone so important in his life, he decided to call her immediately. His whole mind was flooded with fear.free shipping shoes He was afraid that she might have found someone new or no longer had the same feelings anymore..... For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.
As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through......precisely at 1200 midnight. He confessed his love for her and the girl was moved to tears. nike shoes It seemed that she never got over him! Even after so long, she was still waiting for him, never giving up.
He was so excited to meet her and to begin his new chapter of their lives. He decided to fly to Vancouver to join her.

Two days before he was supposed to fly to Vancouver,cheap puma shoes he received a call from her father. She had a head-on car collision with a drunken driver. nike shox shoes She passed away after 6 hours in a coma.
The guy was devastated, as it was a complete loss. Why did fate played such cruel games with him? He cursed the heaven for taking her away from him, denying even one last look at her! How cruel he cursed! How he damned the Gods...!!nike free shoes How he hated himself....for taking so long to realize his mistake!! That was in 1996.
The moral of this story is :
Treasure what you have...
Time is too slow for those who wait;
Too swift for those who fear;
Too long for those who grief;
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love...
Time is Eternity.
For all you out there with someone special in your heart, cherish that person, cherish every moment that you spend together that special someone, for in life, anything can happen anytime. buy shoes onlineYou may painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.

In 1981, ed hardy and his wife formed Hardy Marks Publications. In 2004, Christian Bale licensed the rights to produce the high-end Ed Hardy UK line, which is based on Hardy's imagery. Prior to the ed hardy clothing line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard. Don ed hardy, commented, As demand for my artwork continues to skyrocket, I felt it was ed hardy clothing time to take on a partner that could help me manage the demand and opportunities for the ed hardy T-shirts name. Iconix is at the forefront of brand management and clearly has the capabilities to dramatically grow the Ed Hardy UK business. I'm thrilled to have them as a partner. Cheap Ed Hardy are located in everywhere. We also believe that by owning the brand alongside ed hardy clothing, the founder, there will be opportunities to further leverage his iconic name along with his new artwork.
