"I think hell for men is the Anthropologie dressing room sofa area," so says one of our favorite writer/comedians Mindy Kaling. So for all of you guys who have put in your time on a seafoam chesterfield, this round up is for you!

Coincidentally, there has been a bit of tabloid buzz about certain family-minded celebrities forking over some Hollywood cash to beef up their man caves (Brad Pitt, Nicolas Cage pre-financial meltdown, and Johnny Depp...allegedly). Out of those three, I'd personally like to see Depp's island (affectionately named "F**k Off Island"), not only because um, the obvious...but also because his 35 acre Caribbean paradise will be completely solar and hydrogen powered thanks to Mike Strizki who created the first solar-hydrogen house in New Jersey.

Unfortunately, the closest we'll ever get to Depp's island is through Vanity Fair, so let's turn our attention to our own favorite man caves and dude decor questions:

Steve's Sydney loft gave man caves a good name: Chic, tech-savvy, and colorful? Fantastic! Visit Steve's house tour.

If Steve's loft is the Marc Jacobs of man caves, perhaps Andre's Home Theatre Man Cave could possibly qualify as Calvin Klein: a lot of neutral tones paired with glamorous, glossy black.

Rebecca recapped a pretty hilarious Simpsons episode that focused on Gender Differences and Decorating

And speaking of Gregory, we suspect he may sometimes feel the heat being the lone guy on the LA team. Especially when he posts about Kitchens Designed for Men.

Almost a year ago, I polled two friends about what every guy should have when trying to impress a date. While each of their Top 5 Essentials That Every Guy Should Have were entertaining, it was really some of the comments that had all of us laughing--and debating about hand soap vs. liquid soap.
