Shaving News 6.11.09: Moustache Parties, Splitting Hairs, Depression Shaving, and Political Moustaches
This week in Shaving the Web:
Mustache Parties Sweep the Nation:
"Beyond gatherings for the culmination of Mustache May, Cinco de Mustache and like events, there has been a recent uptick in festivities dedicated to the 'stache. Mustache parties are on the grow in cities across America."
Splitting Hairs, the movie:
"The film begins one year before the World Beard and Moustache Championships in Berlin, we meet Phil and Bruce at home, and learn of their ongoing rivalry. As Phil puts it: "it's whether he's the bigshot in America or I'm the bigshot in America." We also meet outspoken World Muskateer Champion Gary Johnson, who professes loyalty to no one."
Pubic Hair & Market Totalitarianism:
"If you've been fortunate enough to see -- one way or another -- much private anatomy in recent years, you'll be aware that we live in an age of de rigueur pubic (that's p-u-b-i-c, not p-u-b-L-i-c) shaving. Supposedly edgy and hip rather than creepy and infantilizing, this practice is truly rampant, from what I've (ahem) seen."
Depression Shaving v2.0:
"We keep a food pantry at our church for individuals who need it to get by. The other day one of our regulars asked for men's toiletries, toothpaste soap and shaving stuff. Shaving stuff? How could I not have thought of stocking up this essential of human worth and dignity? Kraft Dinner and canned soup are good for your belly, but what about your soul? So my question...what low-cost shaving products could I solicit as donations?"
Moustache in return to cabinet:
"The moustache has fallen into tragic disuse in recent years - and nowhere more so than in politics. Within seconds of being called to high office, once proud wearers of top lip upholstery have swallowed their pride and reached for the razor."
