Proof that every man looks better with a beard, a weblog with side-by-side celebrity headshots — Better with a beard. Yes.
This is the last year of Whiskerino, an exercise in camaraderie, manliness, photography and general beard growing. The last time it occurred, I was travelling without a razor, already rocking a massive beard, and was unable to compete. Basically, you start on November 1st, clean shaven and don’t touch your razor or any other trimming implements until February 28th, making a full 120 days of uninhibited beard growth.
I will be uploading a daily photo to my profile on Whiskerino and occasionally to my flickr stream, if you feel like keeping track. I’m also planning on producing a book at the end of it, with each of the daily photos and a collage which may or may not be related to the day’s photo.
How to get that perfect shave. It comes down to using the timeless shaving brush and double edged safety razor. My preferred method for avoiding cuts, razor burn, etc., is called a beard.
Poets ranked by their beard weight. The gravity of a poet’s beard was determined using the lost art of pogonomancy, or divination by beard. I don’t have to explain how awesome this is.
