DULL OR BORING?
I am a member of the British-based Dull Men's Club (DMC) – which also includes women, and, indeed, claims to have 35,000 + members worldwide. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The DMC's “mission statement” is to 'celebrate the ordinary... the life-changing magic, of simple, everyday, run-of-the-mill things'. (www.dullmensclub.com)
It's current Blogs include:
Telegraph Pole Appreciation Society
Wet Floor Signs
Post WW2 prefab houses
(forthcoming: a blog by yours truly on French shutters)
One of the current Blogs features a British postcard collector who reckons that he has well over a million postcards amassed over 50 years, He admits “..I’m obsessive at times. Last year in Berlin I picked up 114 postcards of the old Berlin Television Tower, the tallest structure in Germany, third tallest in the EU. It was constructed in 1965 by the German Democratic Republic.”
Which makes my, our, and Martin Parr's collection of Boring Postcards look pretty meager
One of the DMC's FAQ's (too many acronyms here!) asks:
“8. Are dull men the same as boring men?
