My Home Floats on Water: The Luxury Floating Home Lifestyle

  floating-home-urbangent1

The Urban Gentleman HQ (headquarters),  June 2019

Almost two years ago I came across a tv show about floating homes. I knew people lived in their boat houses, and yachts, and homes built overlooking water. But a house, a modern house, on the water, in the USA? This was new for me. Apparently it's a thing people do now, especially in state of Washington. Lake Union is full of luxury floating homes. Anyway, seemed like a good day to show some love to our future floating home lifestyle.

Lake house + main house, why? Might as well just combine the two like a boss.

A Polished Man: The Honorable, Stylish, Well-Groomed Kid Saving Hero

As you all know, we're all about that gentleman life here at The Urban Gent. But beyond style, fashion, and grooming there's the actual manners, personality, and overall morals and ethics that is required to be a proper Urban Gentleman. To really, really be one you have to be a man of character and honor.

From  Chris Hemsworth, to Zac Efron, to NBA and NFL Players men with integrity and standards are fighting against child abuse and becoming Polished Men


I stumbled upon a photo of Zac Efron with his nail painted bright red, and thought to myself, 'Umm, okay, what's going on with this guy here.' I looked a little further and found out it was about a campaign called The Polished Man. The Polished Man, an extension of YGap, has taken on the formidable goal to end violence against children. They're challenging men to "nail it and end it." 1 out of 5 children are subject to physical and/or sexual violence before the age of 18. 

Recently, I've found myself learning more and more about the unfortunate abuse that happens to boys and girls in the entertainment industry. The girls we often hear about (ex. Woody Allen, etc), but the molestation of boys / young men by the hands of men is what constantly goes under the radar.  There's been so much said about rappers like Lil Wayne and Young Thug to R&B groups like Immature / B2K, and so many more being violated as children at the hands of their producers, managers, and/or label heads. You can read about that vomit-worthy underbelly of Hollywood, here. But if it happens in those arenas, you know it could be happening right next door at the homes, schools, churches, and sports arenas in your neighborhoods. It's vital to not turn a blind eye to this type of, well, demonic severely perverted behavior– whether it's family, friends, coworkers, pastors, principles, moguls, or whomever. Saving a child from a life of painful, potentially life-threatening, memories is exactly what a Polished Man would do. No amount of money, no amount of threats, would keep a man, especially a gentleman, especially an Urban Gentleman silent. Besides, saving a kid from abuse definitely wins you automatic entrance into heaven, valhalla (for my fellow Vikings fans), or whatever higher place you seek to go once your journey ends in this life. 

Read a little bit more below and find lots more information, here.

President Barack Obama is obviously a polished man

WHAT IS POLISHED MAN? Being a Polished Man means you don’t turn your back on the vulnerable. You raise your voice – and nail – to say, “not on my watch”. You embrace the smirks and know it doesn’t matter; there are worse things than being embarrassed by a little mani. Because nailing it isn’t about shouting the first round, or how much you lift. Nailing it is saying no to violence against children. 

**If you know someone that is a victim of abuse or you yourself are, visit this site, to report, get help, or learn more. 

Friday Vibes: Yo-Yo Ma, Thou Shall Prosper, and Ties

Man-reading-in-window-TheUrbanGent

An Urban Gentleman must read, acquiring knowledge is key

As a kid I listened to Jazz music, Classical music sounded, well, spooky and scary for some reason. These days, I find myself listening to classical music just about every morning. I especially appreciate the cello… today was no different. Yo-Yo Ma's Unaccompanied Cello Suite No.1 played in the background as I finally finished the list of my next books to read. A.G Gaston's book was on the the list and a few similar reads will accompany it. I just re-listened to Thou Shall Prosper for the 2nd time, a book I recommend for those who would like to wisely acquire wealth using Biblical principles.  


Yo-Yo Ma

We'll compliment the music with ties, just to keep things classy, see below:
