Turn Your Favorite Song into a Mustache: Mustachiness

stairwaytoheaven.jpg
There's more to the connection between moustaches and music than the 70s, and with Mustachiness, you can see your favorite song displayed as a moustache:

How the Mustache-otron Works: For each song, the peak loudness per segment is pulled from the echonest audio analysis to create the wave form. The following factors determine the mustaches final look in a very scientifical fashion:
  • Curviness - Curves occur when high loudness deltas are detected
  • Thickness - Mean loudness
  • Divot - (aka gap in the middle) hotness of the song
  • Direction - Up = higher energy; Down = lower energy
  • Curl - Dancability * energy
  • Color - Energy of the song. Lower energy is darker

The moustache at the top of this post is "Stairway to Heaven", in case you were wondering.

Head over to Mustachiness and make your own musical mo'!

Evil Moustaches

moustachelasereyes.jpgThe moustache is on the rebound, now that Movember is here. We tend to celebrate celebrity and historical figures' moustaches and refer to the implied manliness of wearing an epic 'stache. But not all moustaches are benevolent.

"The mustache (moustache) is celebrated worldwide as a symbol of all things machismo. We know it wasn't just Wyatt Earp's Colt 45 Revolver that helped tame the West. Anyone unlucky enough to stare down that barrel knew the last thing they'd ever see was that well groomed, stash curled upward and pristinely trimmed just above the lip.

Yet as with all things awesome, some asshole has to come along and ruin it for everyone else. Here are a few history's most diabolical men who've used the power of the mustache for evil."

The Inspirational Moustache

inspirationalmoustache.JPGWho doesn't love a book about moustaches? Soon to be released, The Inspirational Moustache is certain to become an instant classic among the facial hair crowd:

"There is an old English proverb that goes "a man without a moustache is like a cup of tea without sugar." In our calorie-conscious age, tea has tended to come sugar-free for many years now, but the moustache is making a comeback! In fashion, in craft and on the upper lips of hipsters everywhere, the moustache--the soup strainer, nose neighbor, lip tickler, face foliage, slipped eyebrow--is back and here to stay. The Inspirational Moustache is a humorous survey of the millennial moustache boom. Edited by Ziggy Hanaor (of Making Stuff fame), it features photographs, illustrations, short, witty texts, a handful of moustache-related craft ideas, a summary of key moustache styles (pencil, handlebar, walrus, Fu Manchu, etc), plus funky visuals of such key cultural moments as Movember (i.e. November: moustache awareness-raising month), finger moustaches and of course the World Beard and Moustache Championships."

Cultivating a Moustache is even Pricklier than a Beard

catmoustache.jpg

"Once the brand of outliers, beards have become so mainstream that two out of two male J.Crew execs were sporting them on their travels this summer. Beards abound everywhere, from rock festivals to ho-hum cubicles. They've crossed just about every post-pubescent generational and cultural divide.

So what facial hair remains for mavericks to assert that identity instantly? A unibrow looks like neglect. Sideburns can be overlooked. By contrast, you can't miss a mustache. When unaccompanied by a beard, it doesn't grow by mistake.

Cultivating one, however, is even pricklier than a beard."
