Maori haka versus Australian aborigines.
What a war dance for a friendly rugby match!

The eternal rift between fathers and sons.

Maybe it's evolution in some social sense.

Mike And The Mechanics - The Living Years.

The Who - I'm A Boy.

Maybe in many cases identity comes naturally, but perhaps in a few cases one has to put one's foot down and demand the male identity to go with the biology.

It was my birthright to claim it.

The sooner, the better.

300: Rise of an Empire
Although the movie had mixed reviews, it scored quite well.

I expected the bigorexia to go through the roof for this one, but it was actually reduced.
The lead actor was actually under his usual weight.

The Athenians were poets, farmers and tradesmen in this film.
The greater variety of male bodies made it easier to identity with the protagonists.
I enjoyed it very much, and still see the genre as inspiring.

Here's the classic Black Sabbath song "War Pigs".
An orchestral version from the credits.

Biffy Clyro - Black Chandelier.

"...I know I'm a failure in your eyes ..."

Tough, I only care what my bros think these days, and all the men in the same boat as myself.
No pleasing others in any case.
Not to say one shouldn't respect everyone, but I don't expect empathy as a male.
Life has been better since then.

It doesn't matter whether it's a rock concert, a tribal gathering, an orchestra, or a yoga retreat - men will always enjoy playing instruments, singing and making music together.

Can't believe this quintessential man music hasn't been posted....

Sabaton - Gallipoli.

Remembering the World War I campaign beginning on 25 April 1915 during which 187, 959 men in the Allied forces lost their lives (not including disease), and a similar number in the Ottoman Empire.

So many dead in eight months.
While the whole war had a lot of misguided eagerness at first, it's also true that men who wanted to avoid it were given white feathers by some women, suggesting that they were cowards.

I try to imagine being a young man back then, and how often the tragedy was repeated.

"Oh mothers wipe tears, your sons will rest a million years".

Dude, that rocks to the very core of the soul.
Thanks so much man.
No matter.
Masculinity is balls, but you don't have to be biologically male to have them.
Although it helps.

Great songs.
Thanks, my friend.

lol.. I once told my husband that I have balls, they are just on the inside. Then he said: "Don't ever say that again, it is just wrong!" hahahaha

The song simple man I used to sing to my son when he was a baby..I figured Lynyrd Skynyrd never thought their song would end up as a lullaby, but my dad used to say that the things you exposed your baby to would be ingrained in them as they grow.. so I sung to him that song almost everyday from the time he was born til the time he thought he was too old for anyone to sing to him.. lol..

But even after that, on occasion he would say, will you sing me that song?

I love the remake of that song by shinedown, and so does he. It is really really good.

As far as Dry Country.. yeah.. they do rock!

Thanks man.. I take what you say as a compliment.

Fantastic, sounds like you have two great men in your life.

I think I said previously in the thread that "masculinity" is not bound by gender or sexual orientation.
Some didn't get that at first.

I'm glad you made that clear!

Perhaps there's different forms, but I'm happy everyone's enjoying the thread, and also the freedom that masculinity allows.
In a masculine frame of mind you don't owe nobody nothing.

It's free from any domestic space.
Free like the imagination.
Free like the prairie.
And you can never hit a fence.

I don't talk about my son on forum because I am not allowed to.
He said that is tantamount to talking about him behind his back and any talking about him is off limits.. lol.. but I love him very very much!

Here is a fun song!
