Dull Men Have Hobbies
In “Born to be Mild” from Aeon Video, members of the Dull Men’s Club share thoughts and experiences about finding enjoyment in everyday life and ordinary things and a passion for slow paced adventure, including roundabouting and escalator riding. Proving Dave Barry’s theory that “hobbies of any kind are boring except to people who have the same hobby”, their stories are engaging and funny.
BORN TO BE MILD –“There’s a lot to be said about being dull.”
In case you’re wondering—–yes, there really is a Dull Men’s Club (for the “dull and the proud”) and a book, “Dull Men of Great Britain“. The club website is full of hobby ideas in various categories (e.g. “Safe Excitement”), and provides helpful informational resources for unusual leisure activities.
