We're cutting edge!!
This morning the Today show ran a report on the rise of the "retrosexual." Of course, we all know that style and taste in America are dictated by Madison Avenue. Marketing creates taste cultures that create identity--all that crap. Well aparently the new tast culture is real men, those who won't eat quiche. There has been a backlash agaist the Metrosexual, and none of us really had the money, power and influence to be ubersexuals (apparently blogger can't create umlauts). But now a series of adds has heralded the return of manliness. In a number of adds, from body wash to burger king to those great "man law" adds from Miller Light, manliness is now chic.
