Hey Ya’ll Adam here, I love November! Why? Because November is really Movember and I get to grow a righteous mustache. I have already begun to prep for my mustache halfway through October by growing a beard, this insures a nice thick mustache come November 1st. Both my fathers have had mustaches my whole life, so it is in fact a right of passage for me. Last year I grew a very pink panther detective esque mustache, it was awesome! This year I’m going for a fuller look, 80’s porn star if you will. I look so good with a mustache it should be illegal. All the Austin hipsters will envy and bow in the presence and glory that is my mustache. My wife and fellow women will be hypnotized by it’s beauty. What can I say, I look great with a stache. The only regret I have is that I don’t have enough time to grow some handle bars. That would be awesome. Usually by the end of November I am throwing around threats that I will keep my stache forever but Sierra quickly puts the kibosh on that thought. This year I am channeling some of the great mustache aficionados in the hopes that I encourage my facial hair to grow to its fullest and become the most beautiful mustache I have ever had. There is only one way I see fitting to end this blog and thats by screaming at the top of my lungs, “who wants a mustache ride!!??”

Hello, my name is Sierra and I despise November. Ok, ok, I have nothing against the month, its just that I dread Movember as Adam feels that the start of November he has to grow novelty facial hair…and it’s usually as bad as it sounds. Now don’t get me wrong, I think that the idea behind Movemberand the awareness is raises for mens health is wonderful, but do they have to be such bad mustaches? I am not against all mustaches, my dad for example had one most of my life and for the past few years that he has not had one, something always seems to be missing from his face. Adam however, seems unable to grow a mustache that makes him look anything but a creepy porn star from decades past. I wonder how much of this is due to his lack of personal style as his hair also tends to gravitate towards the creepy look of his facial hair or just the way he looks with facial hair. Part of the problem is that due to genetics, he grows a full mustache in about 3 days. This gives him a lot to work with in the area of sculpting (which is an obsession I am also so curious about why it exists), and once he starts he can’t seem to stop. He becomes part chia pet, part bonsai master and part wooly willy. Note the above example from 2011, excuse the grainy photo, I had to stalk his instagram account to find past selfies (which he takes a LOT of). Also note that he was out of town for that version, which was pretty fortunate, as I doubt I’d be able to keep a straight face if I had to talk to him while he looked like a 70’s porn star.  Now check out the version of the 2012 stash below. This was right before he shaved it off after realizing that he was beginning to develop an undesirable likeness to a certain dictator from the mid 1900’s. You may be getting an idea of why I dread the 11th month of the year. What fills me with the most dread is the fact that he has already come up with a “theme” for his Movember stash this year…who does that??? The only good part is that he gets bored quickly and usually ends up shaving it off before the end of the month. Mustache ride, indeed.
