How to Prepare for a Double Edge Safety Razor Shave

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

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. My readers would vote on “Beardageddon,” and I could cut my facial hair in whatever style they chose. Most of the time the result was ridiculous, and I’d shave […]

Beardageddon: Pulling a Harold Camping

Over a month ago I put out a call for votes about what to do with my beard. At least once a year, “Beardageddon” occurs, and I do something silly with my facial hair before shaving it completely off. Last year I liked the vote result so well that I kept it for two months. […]

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 […]

Beardaggedon 2010: The Final Chapter

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 […]

Beardaggedon 2010

I don’t know what I enjoy more: the warm feeling of a bearded fluffyface, or the fanfare associated with cutting it off. This marks my third official Gibberish “Beardaggedon,” but this year I added a twist: I asked my friends and readers how I should cut my facial hair. I am excited to announce the […]

Beardaggedon Cometh

Every year I grow a beard for the winter. I like to pretend I do so to keep my face warm while motorcycling, but for the most part I just like having a beard. However, it gets pretty hot and humid in Virginia during the summer, and I usually shave it off sometime in the […]

Beardaggedon, winter 2008

I have grown a full beard for the last three years in a row. I mixed it up a bit this year by starting and ending earlier. I typically started after Thanksgiving, but I had been on such a tear riding my motorcycle to work I thought starting early would be a good idea. Unfortunately […]

Last year I grew my facial hair out from the day after Thanksgiving to sometime in March-ish. It was nice, especially while riding my motorcycle when it was below freezing. The same thick hair on my arms and fingers that scares small children away protected my babysoft skin from the cold. I did it again […]
