Movember Update 2/3 Done!

Just posting a quick Movember update for those of you that are interested in our lip sweaters so that we can "change the face of men's health".  This has been a fun exercise in hair growth and slightly reminds me of having to take care of an egg in home economics classes way back when:

Getting a group of men to keep their mustaches for thirty days is not as easy as it sounds but, now at nearly three weeks into the flavor-saver fun, finally everyone seems to have fallen nicely in line.

It may have taken threats.

Cajoling may have been needed.

Promises to certain ladies may have been made.

Gifts given.

But the results speak for themselves.

Just take a look at these monuments to masculinity in mustachio form!

Titans of tangled testosterone!

Unfettered follicles of fame! (Don't hate on the Pope in the top left.  He has blond hair but it is actually a nice full stache.)

Hope our mugshots keep you entertained -  happy Tuesday!

Movember Update Day 12

The men have really started to separate themselves from the boys and what a difference a week makes in turning a Movember Hero into a Movember Zero. As this tale of the thistle ticklers gets deeper into lip doily development, I have promised to keep you updated.

This week's hero is No-Man Notheis for standing tall in the face of friends fleeing him just as the action heats up.  Nick shares an office with last week's hero, KanYe-Wheezy who shaved a grizzled man growth off of his giant chin.  However as the month has heated up and his cheek hugging affectionate friend has inched its way back onto his face, KanYe has found it hard to depart with the familiar fuzz.

KanYe Today:                            

    Before Being Called Out               Ashamed of Himself

Nick has gloriously grown this guy over the last 12 days:
It's too bad his compatriot felt compelled to cower beneath the comfort of his forbidden beard.

Meanwhile the rest of the crew has held up to their end of the bargain and as of yet there isn't a welcher among them. K-Swoll even got his license renewal with the stache! If this man doesn't deserve a hero award I don't know who does.

K-Swoll cemented this look for the next 8 years, until his license expires or he conveniently misplaces it.  Though let's be honest, no one is trying to deal with the Department of Motor Vehicles unless they absolutely have to...

Mine has developed nicely, and though I am no stranger to facial hair, it has been a while since the stache got to stand alone amongst the stubble of my face.  It is enjoying the attention of being conditioned each night, combed, and then rubbed with evaporated milk and silky oils imported from India.
 And then there was Tom. Despite a 14 hour trip to London, and a same-day back to Wales (due to vehicular issues) trip, he still managed to make the most of his lip-titan.
He looks remarkably like Edward Scissorhands
Some of you may be asking about The Pope and though he didn't get the picture in on time, word is he looks very close to this guy:

I Hate To Love My Pals -Mustache Amended Post

A "no-show" mustachio in progress, a man from the depths of Georgia, forgot to send in his photo yesterday. No-Man Notheis rectified the situation today, but did so with a bit of a shot at me since the University of Florida Gators were a bit toothless in their efforts against the Georgia Bulldogs last week.

While I hate to do it...

It was a pretty good shot and so I appease the victor.

The correct term is "Jorts" though.  Everyone knows that...at least in Gainesville, GA. Also, we have yet to play Vanderbilt, but as of this post I can say, "At least we haven't lost to Vanderbilt."


As you can't really see his pristine face, here is a close up:

Visions of the GA victory dance in his lenses.

And after letting his hair grow about 5 days we end up with:

I don't know....What YOU talkin bout Willis?

If and when we get further updates I shall post accordingly.  The next mustache update for the bulk of the group will be Monday as I think we all agree that some time is needed to cultivate these staches before we present them to the public again.  The last thing we want is our upper-lip follicles to get a case of stage fright...

Movember: Some of the Cast of Characters

With the end of the weekend and the welcome to a wonderful and Mo-tastic Monday, we usher in Day Four of the charity event that is all about bringing more awareness to men's health.  I promised last week that we would try and assemble pictures of the roster, and though I have a few pictures of the team with the hairless cheeks, some were not timely about getting photos back to me, so I offer unto you, the reader, what I have available.

Welcome to Movember -Tribute Post

Well, it's that time of year again;  that time where the autumn air is crisp and the promise of winter lingers just beyond the horizon.  It is a time when, more than ever, men around the world need their facial hair in order to survive the wickedness of the winter elements.

And of course it is that time of year, where in honor of Movember, (that isn't at typo) men are required to shave their coveted and carefully crafted crumb catchers and cheek cowlicks before embarking on exemplary, entertaining, and new gregarious growths of follicle glory.

While everyone puts the focus on individuals who have to grow their man-staches. I think it is important to note the individuals who have been growing facial hair for near to a year and then need to part ways with their blessed beauties in order to start from scratch.

So with that in mind, let us pay tribute to our fallen facial hair giant.


In a later post I will do a team lineup.  Getting pictures from everybody is like herding cats, so for now just enjoy the glorious metamorphosis above or check out our team page and leave a small donation for men's health if you feel so inclined.
