Movember Prostate Cancer Awareness Contest

Movember Prostate Cancer Awareness Contest

At this stage of my life, everyone I know has either directly lost someone to cancer, or knows someone who has. Everyone. Every. Last. One of us. Every November there is a large event to raise awareness (and research money) for prostate cancer. Called “Movember,” participants are encouraged to not shave for a month. For […]

How to Prepare for a Double Edge Safety Razor Shave

I shaved my beard off in early March and I knew I was going to have to shave more frequently than I have the last year and a half. I burned up my last Mach 3 razor cartridge, and thought I would try my hand at shaving with a double edge safety razor. I am […]

Beardageddon 2012

I used to have a tradition when I lived in Virginia. I’d start growing a beard after Thanksgiving, and then shave it off during the spring.

The Beardageddon Is Nigh

The Beardageddon Is Nigh

It’s getting to be that time of the year: Beardageddon. That’s when I trim or cut my beard to meet the whims of my friends and readers. I normally like to cut my beard when the weather hits 60°F or higher on a regular basis. Unfortunately that day may never come in Minnesota, and I […]

So the time has come. After wearing a face sweater every day since Thanksgiving of last year, it’s time for it all to come off. When it came time for me to trim my full beard, my readers voted for the Freebird a little over a month ago. What was supposed to be a goofy […]
