Just about anything from rural gardening to motivation tips. Very DIY and down to earthy. Such fine read if you ignore the occasional religious reference. The Voluntary Simplicity/
Simple Living section is a must read for any person. Good recipes too.

Another fine blog. More of an "random notions from personal point of view" type of thing with occasional cooking tip.

Not exactly a blog but an article with great instructive comments on the side. Learn for this, /ck/ :)

Real Life Spy Gadgets - For the secret agent in all of us

Tucker Max on becoming a writer:
I had bought into the system so fully, and abandoned my passion for so long, I no longer believed in it or in myself. It just didn't seem realistic that I could do it.
Then I read Fight Club. If there is any one singular event that I can point to that set me on the course to who and what I am today, it is reading Fight Club. It woke something primal and fundamental in me.
I had seen the movie when I was in college, but until you have gone out into the world and worked a shitty job and thought to yourself, "Is this it? Is this why I went to school? For this?", you can't understand it. But once I read the book after the real world kicked me in the teeth, it clicked. It gave voice to something inside me I had not been able to elucidate before:
I had been sold a lie. Life was not about going to the right schools and getting the right jobs just so I work a job I hate in order to accumulate more crap I don't want or need. That's not how life was meant to be lived. There is another way. I can be the man I want to be, I can do the things I want to do and I can live the life I want to live...I just have to stop believing the lies I have been sold, and stop caring what all those people think who don't matter, and find the courage to go out and do it.

update: tucker's movie opens September 25. It screened well in Cannes.
