This article was originally published at: Oscars 2020 – I am Ken Saddle up for Pink Suits and Cowboy Hats

Oh, the Oscars in 2024! What do I say? The night was not only a celebration of cinematic achievements, but also a catwalk that made its way into style discussions around the world. You can’t blame me for being utterly enchanted. I will now share the details of this spectacular event with you, sprinkled with wit, opulence, and all of my usual wit.

Let’s discuss the pink elephant or the elephant in the living room. This is all thanks to Ryan Gosling. Ryan Gosling, with a suit so loud it was more than any award acceptance speech, and a pink suit so vivid, that the roses were blushing.

He sang “I am only Ken,” but that suit was anything other than “just.”

Pink is the new black

The bold color of cherry blossoms was a fashion declaration that had grooms and males everywhere asking, “Is Pink the New Black?”

The trend is as irresistible to me as chocolate-dipped strawberry. Cowboy hats have tipped the fashion scales to an exciting direction. It’s like Clint Eastwood had a rodeo on Beverly Hills and I am there to enjoy it.

Fashion is all about expression. It’s about wearing the unthinkable and turning heads. This pink suit with cowboy hat is more than just a fashion statement. It’s an uncharted territory for menswear. Here’s how to rock the look without looking lost at a pink march.

Talk Pink

Let’s start with pink. Pink is not just a colour; it’s a way of thinking. You must embrace pink with all your heart and soul to wear it. It’s all about the shade. Choose a shade of pink that compliments your skin tone. Think soft pastels if you have a lighter complexion, and deeper, richer pinks if you have a darker complexion. Fit is key when it comes time to choose a suit. A pink suit that is well-tailored can make you feel like royalty. However, a poorly fitted pink suit could be a fashion faux pa.

Cowboy Hats

The cowboy hats. Darling, they’re no longer just for cowboys. These hats are a sign of rugged elegance and a nod to American spirit, with a touch of high fashion. Select a hat to balance the opulence in your pink suit. A black cowboy cap can add a touch of mystery and masculinity.

The fun begins when you accessorize this bold combination. Consider your accessories to be the supporting cast of your Oscar-worthy outfit. A white shirt under a black suit adds an air of sophistication. A bow tie, or a necktie with a subtle pattern, can bring a playful element to the look. The perfect leather boots will bring the look together and make you the talk of the party.

Fashion is about confidence and comfort, but don’t forget. Wear this look as confidently and with ease as you do your favorite jeans and T-shirt. Even the most extravagant outfit will fall flat if you don’t have the right attitude. So, strut confidently like a Hollywood star on the Oscars Red Carpet and make sure to turn heads.

We talk about time a lot in terms of economics. We talk about our attention and how we spend time.

We think that we are being frugal and prudent when we decide there is not enough time to complete a certain task.

In many cases we can be terrible spendthrifts.

We don’t realize that everything we own is a loan. The interest that accrues on these loans can be a hundred times worse if we do not pay them back.

You may not have the time to thoroughly check your new product. . . How will you deal with angry customers, returns and damage to your PR that follow its recall?

You may be too busy to socialize in a way that will keep your depression at bay. . . How much can you accomplish if you are unable to get up in the morning?

You may not be able to get out and exercise every day because you are too busy at work. . . How will you get yourself out of a hole you create when you are in the hospital after a heartattack?

You may not be able to fit in date nights or trips for just mom and dad. . . How will you manage to attend sessions of marriage counselling? . . Separation can be emotionally draining and bandwidth-sucking. . . Meetings with a divorce attorney?

It may seem that you do not have the time to devote to important relationships and activities in your life. Flip a few more pages in your ledger to check the numbers. There isn’t time enough in the world for you to regret it when the debt collectors call.

Odds & Ends: May 17, 2024

Odds and Ends header v3.1


A vintage metal box labeled

Nuobell Adjustable Dumbbells by SMRTFT. I tried out several sets of dumbbells last spring to find the one that worked best. Nuobell was the winner. One year later, they’re still my favorite dumbbells. The dumbbells are expensive, but they’re worth it for the convenience factor. To adjust the weight you simply twist the handle. Kate and I have used them several times a day and we’ve never had any problems with the quality. Buy a set and begin a full body workout at your home.

Northwoods Baseball Sleep Radio This is one of the most bizarre things I have seen online in a very long time. Northwoods Baseball Sleep Radio features radio broadcasts that are full-length of fake baseball matches. All the games that Wally McCarthy calls (look at his profile picture; he’s serious) are entirely made up. The episodes sound just like a baseball broadcast on AM/FM radio. The combination of Wally’s play-by-play comments and the low din created by the crowd, combined with slight radio static, can be a very relaxing experience.

The majority of people’s musical taste is fixed. Adam Singer highlights Spotify’s research that found our musical tastes tend to solidify between the age of 13 and 16 years old. We stop looking for new artists after that. Adam argues that getting stuck in your musical routine can lead to you missing out on some great artists. To find new artists, you need to be open-minded and have patience. Spotify’s algorithm is a good start, but only shows you music that’s similar to your favorites. You can ask your friends to recommend bands that you may not have heard of otherwise. Kate’s ability to find new music and have opinions on how to create the soundtrack to your life, even as we age, is something I admire.

The Transparency Society Byung-Hul C., a German-South Korean philosopher. He is a very interesting cat. He writes about life in our fast-paced, technologically-driven society. It’s hard to understand his prose at times, but I find it fascinating. He doesn’t give interviews and protects his privacy. The Transparency Society is a book I’ve thought a lot of. Chan criticizes the modern obsession and drive for transparency. We tend to think that more transparency can be good for reducing corruption and other issues. Transparency can also be used as a tool to control and monitor people. He also claims that transparency removes the need to trust in a relation since you can simply follow your child with an AirTag, and not have any faith that they will do and go where that they promised. Secrets have power.

You need to be in top shape if you want to have a “license to kill”.

What did James Bond do to work out?

In the James Bond novels we learn that 007 enjoyed all kinds of physical activities, including boxing, swimming and skiing. He also played golf, which was another way he exercised.

Bond, as a former Commander of the Royal Navy Reserve incorporated into his routine some calisthenics that he had learned in the military. He may have even been inspired by the Cold War HIIT exercise 5BX.

From Russia with Love shows these influences. Fleming described a calisthenics workout that his agent did, which was topped off by a “James Bond Shower” in that book (one of the five best Bond books).

The only way to get rid of boredom was to kick yourself out of it. Bond sat on his hands, did 20 slow press-ups and lingered over each one to ensure that his muscles were not resting. As his arms began to hurt, Bond rolled onto his back, placed his hands by his sides and performed the straight leg lift until his stomach muscles screamed. After touching his toes 20 times, he got up and did arm and chest exercises, alternating with deep breathing, until he became dizzy. He was panting from the effort, so he went to the large white-tiled shower and stood under the glass cabinet for five minutes.

We’ve shown you a quick and simple bodyweight exercise. Chair dips work the chest and arms. If you like, you can create your own arm and chest exercises. If you are a spy training for the challenges of international espionage, it is highly recommended that you perform this portion and the others in a tux, with a martini and pistol at hand.
