Maybe the southern hemisphere's answer to Cinco de Mustache? Someone sent me this article from the Wall Street Journal. Its content is cut from the same whiskers as is my late mustache, so to speak. Read all about it.

Matching Hat Rocket

My huge rocket of Cinco de Mustache 2007 wore the same hat as I did, so I launched it straight out of my site. My mustache had something to do with it. The best part by far is when the rocket flies and sprays deadly smoke at Dane and curves away to the honey tree.

(When I tried to edit it, it cut out the audio, so I threw in Baraga Embankment by Bear vs. Shark)

Final Cut

It's hard to hold still when a mustache is coming out of your face.
(and when you're aging 10 years in 30 days)

The Corporate Event

After last year's excursion to Guadalahonky's (great name, awful food), we thought we'd try something else this year. And, well, Mi Ranchito in American Fork did not disappoint. The decor tickled our mustaches' collective fancy and the food was decent. I'll let most of these photos speak for themselves. Just know that I made $58 that day. My palate and waistline suffered what may be irreparable damage, but it was worth it... just for the memories, boys, just for the memories.

The challenge: tostada, enchilada, taco, burrito, rice, beans.

Vegas Style

Even mi hermano got in on the action. And, yeah, he slicked back his hair in celebration. I should also mention that he's moving to Wyoming in a month. Seems appropriate.

My rocket is not ready.
But the launch rod is.
And my mustache is.

Monday Music Roundup

Everyone needs a hobby.

A few of my dear readers have found purpose and meaning in facial hair and have started a blog chronicling their moustache progress from April 1 until May 5 ("growing season"), thus joining the Cinco de Moustache movement. Important topics such as "World's greatest moustaches" (yes, Tom Selleck is in there) and "Take baby pictures of your moustache" are covered. One of these guys won my Stranger Than Fiction book title competition a few months back by saying if he wrote a book of his life, it would be entitled: "Facial Failure: My Everyday Struggle to Grow a Moustache (and Sideburns) that looks neither Pervy nor Predatory." So there's a precedent here.

Good luck, men. Be strong. And may the best . . . follicles win?

Check it out yerself HERE.

(and P.S. I really need that T-shirt!)

In defense of the mustache

World's Greatest Mustaches

Let's see your all-time favorites, boys. It's probably best to start with the legend himself.

3 mustaches

I like thinking about my eyes being mouths and my eyebrows being their mustaches—giving me a total of 3 mustaches.

Thankfully, White Ninja Uses Mustaches Often

click for clarity.
Mmmm. Growing season.
I'm beginning to arrive at a point in my 'stache growth that is laying upon me concerns.
Food concerns.

I fear food taking up residence.
And bringing in roommates.
Throwing obnoxious parties.
Could be cheese from a taco, chocolate sauce from a scrumptious ice cream cone (it is spring afterall), or a bread crumb from a Dagwood sandwich.
Now when I'm in public I must be more selective about the foods I eat.
Rather than going for straight taste to maximize my bliss, I must subtract from the overall bliss the likelihood of something from each particular food nestling in amongst my whiskers.
And I'm starting to develop of compulsion of wipping my face.
Even when I haven't eaten for half-a-day.

This haunts me.

If I get in a car wreck this month

It will be because I'm looking at my mustache in the rearview.

Take Baby Pictures of Your Mustache

Growing season started yesterday. It is time to sow and to grow; the harvest is on the 5th of Mustache at midnight. Take plenty of pictures. Make a flip book. Make a time-lapse. See your lip go from bald to bristly, bristly to bushy, bushy to pushbroom.
