The Scarsdale High School Beard Club

scarsdale.jpgA while back Gizmodo expressed their disbelief at the existence of our little shaving site. Now it's my turn. A high school beard site? Serious?

Well... yeah. Kinda.

A warm web welcome to the Scarsdale High School Beard Club, whose quest for official club status appears to be the main motivation. That and getting enough people together to go to a monster truck rally so that you don't feel like the lone loser. Amazingly these guys gotten some press by a few of the other beard blogs and sites. And now us.

But cry not for the poor scarred youth of Scarsdale, their dream has apparently come true. According to this post on the Beard Team USA Blog (more on that in the next few days), the kids have triumphed.

Congratulations to the Scarsdale High School Beard Club in Scarsdale, New York. The school recently granted the club official sanction, despite initial opposition, due to overwhelming support from the student body. The SHSBC is now the second largest club at Scarsdale High, with 41 members attending the second meeting. Good luck and keep up the good work!

You know... I watched this documentary recently about inner city kids whose schools had cut most programs, yet somehow ballroom dancing was allowed in and gave their lives purpose. Must be similar. Beard on.

Weekend Reading - ShaveBlog.com

shaveblog.jpgWhen we got picked up by Gizmodo last week they had trouble determining which was more unusual - a 5 bladed razor, or a blog devoted to shaving. Well, if yesterday's post about BarberBlog.com wasn't unusual enough, here's your weekend reading assignment - ShaveBlog.com written by Corey Greenberg. And he's been on TV!

So I did a segment on NBC's Today Show about the lost art of wetshaving, and how old-school razors, badger hair shaving brushes, and high-end English shaving creams not only deliver the greatest shave you can possibly imagine, but bring back the pleasant, gentlemanly ritual that's been missing since the bloodbath of 1971 when Idi Amin led a coup to become ruler of Uganda and Gillette introduced the first twin-blade razor.

The writing on ShaveBlog is great. Tons of personality and personal experience. The focus is mainly on older single-blade razors, and Corey's contempt of multi-bladed systems is comical yet honest. He's a man after the perfect shave. What's so unusual about that?

New Shaving Blog - BarberBlog.com

BarberBlogJust got an email from our friends over at SharpsUSA about their new blog BarberBlog.com. We covered Sharps earlier in the month when they were having a great sale. Hope you took advantage of it. Now the guys are back with a new blog, covering all topics barbershop related from shaving to haircuts and other means of hair removal. My two favorite entries are the Jesus Shaves T-shirt and the guide to what type of moustache you should have depending on your face, nose, and mouth. I'm guessing my big mouth means I should go triangular.
