Who is bringing you this type of content on the internets? I’ll tell you who. Nobody, just the film of LIFE. As advocates of Stand Up culture we continue to RollDatDice…
The year is 2018
The traditional made man has been made extinct due to masculinity being viewed as a negative trait. Society is now emasculated where nobody wants to take responsibility for anything, where there are no innovative men who take chances, take risks, with morals or live by a code.
They remain on display in various museums around America, where tour guides educate school kids and museum visitors on the history of the traditional made man.
The museum tour guide deals with the visitors questions…
Who was the traditional made man?
He was a man with good intentions and ambitions who understood he was imperfect – however he was proud of his imperfections as it made him human, he never seeked validation from anyone other than himself.
What did made men used to do for leisure? It seems as if more and more men are interested in the lives of other men instead of their own and spend most time posting photos on social network sites.
Well the activities were wide and varied. They mainly involved chasing women, smoking, drinking, generating income, hip hop, eating at big a$$ buffet lines, outta state trips, driving and many more. He frowned on seeking attention so as to keep an aura of mystery around him.
Was the traditional made man interested in health?
The traditional made man was able to control his vices, thus reducing chances of addiction and ill health. He indulged in vices to heighten an experience, rather than out of sorrow or to fit in He did this through maintaining a steady flow of water, fruit juices. and basic exercise. The gym was not a place to go when he was bored or to take photos in.
Was the traditional made man a family man?
Mostly yes. The traditional made man understood that although family can be a nuisance at times, they will always keep you grounded and remind you of who you really are. He often did not marry but solely for financial reasons rather than for moral reasons. He was absolutely forbidden from wifing women regarded as smuts, as this brought his name into disrepute. His name was his name.
What did the traditional man used to wear? Was he obsessed with appearance as many men are today? Thus mimicking the stereotypical traditional gender roles of women in society?
The traditional made man saw fashion as a way to adapt to his surroundings and environment. Tight clothing was forbidden as it indicated homosexuality. For the harsh terrain of the city he would wear footwear such as the Timberland boot for informal meetings before evolving to other formal footwear after Timbaland played itself out. He wore clothing with large pockets that enabled him to stash various items in. He was forbidden from ever having any hairstyle that may make him say “ I’m having a bad hair day” – a term associated with metrosexuals and females.
Was the traditional man emotional? Many men in present society care so much about what other people think of them and have public meltdowns.
He understood you must never fold under pressure. Even when angry, he hid his emotions as if he was taking part in a poker game.

Here at the film of LIFE we like to pride ourselves on being preservers of what i like to call “Stand Up Culture”. In this microwave, microsoft world (Shout out to William Gates , you visible) rampant with those who play it safe. Those who are scared to dive head first, those who are scared to shoot scenes in the most captivating piece of cinema known to man your LIFE. We urge you to Roll Dat Dice.
With that being said i am proud to present a new weekly series here at the film of LIFE “Roll Dat Dice Wednesday” written by Harlem World curator of RollDatDice.
“Why do we gamble? What makes us roll dat dice, spin that wheel and risk it all on black? Is it the allure of the glamour & glitz? The money? No, thats too simplistic a view. Human beings, we’re complex little bastards. People like myself we’re always thinking, plotting, sometimes I have to drink liquor just to switch my brain off for a second because we get tunnel vision when it comes to trying to reach our goals.
Some people are addicted to gambling even when they more or less broke! Why? Because it aint just about the money to them.It’s about trying to defy the odds, Producing a lot from a little, seeing that thought translate into an action, something tangible. It sets off the chemicals, dopamine in ya brain, its a powerful buzz.
Now i’m not tellin you to go out and spend your life savings at the dice game, casino or on online poker, never that. I’m just saying, people like me couldnt go to sleep at night knowing we never tried to get what we wanted. That conscience is a motherfucker sometimes. The British SAS soldiers have a motto that goes WHO DARES WINS. If you want something grow some nuts if you want to get it, no homo. Have a lil heart, stop being scared of failure, rejection.If you believe in something, then its not even a risk. Ali didnt win every fight he was in. Nobody is perfect, thats why i like my women imperfect.
I like women who like to indulge in a vice or two. I cant trust a squeaky clean female, who wants to throw that towel in when times get a little hard.
Bare in mind that your going to take losses, thats life, but once you reach your goal it will make it all worth it.
