3-Way Helicopter Beards

Ok - real or not real - this is the question? Regardless - Gentlemen everywhere should
take this as advice - there is a LIMIT to beard grooming. I repeat - there is a LIMIT.
In this case, I believe Justin and Andy are 1 step away from the (GASP) GOATEE. Gag. Me.
With. A. Spoon. Or should I say here Gaga me with a spoon? Whatever the case, they had
me at helicopter D*** and the 90's jumpers are ridiculous. Take a look.
(Also, why has it been seeming lately that Sarandon has been popping up in all the buzz?)

Self Titled OMB! (Oh My Beard) Beard

Thanks to a proper beard exchange of tune tips (thanks Papo!) comes the ever so fresh,
OH, SO, SWEET, new record from my boy Justin Vernon, also known as Bon Iver. Justin,
I will accept this record as replacement for tucking me into bed every night, nestled
ever so gently in the palms of your sound, that is, unless you would still like to come
over and kiss me good night? (Insert bad "Bone" pun here) Seriously though, I can't
think of many things better right now than this self-titled release that has me
swooning over every dip and dive. Vernon - you've done it again.
Check out the lyrics to the new album HERE .

Moose Champion Beard

Yes. A MOOSE. Also, a bicycle, the London bridge, and Berlin's Brandenberg Gate.
A true work of living art, 47-year-old German hairdresser, Elmar Weisser, has
done it again. He's managed to scoop up yet another international beard title in
the ever so strange and fascinating world of sport bearding. Slaughtering a whopping
160 contestants to emerge victorious, he reminds all the boys everywhere - to
try harder as men. I'm with you, Elmar! Grow long, or go home, that's what I say.

For the full press release from the competition, and more photos CLICK HERE
And thanks Rab, for the discovery!

Heavenly Beard

I believe the filmmaker appropriately opened this film with a shot of the heavens
parting for good reason. I've seen Robin Pecknold open with his band the Fleet Foxes
a few times - and EVERY occasion of experiencing his sweltering soundbox caress
my humbled eardrums has brought me literally to tears. I will even admit that I've been
so mesmerized by his sound that I've completely overlooked the lovely locks on his
face - something that I would naturally lock eyes with.

I can't encourage everyone enough to go out and snatch up their 3rd album:
"Helplessness Blues" which officially came out yesterday, May 3rd. Listen to a few
of the tracks on Indieball's blog here. Looking forward to NOTHING MORE than
to see these guys play in NYC in a few weeks.

Collared Bearded

Would you like a bow tie to go with that collared beard?
Our friends over at JCrew would gladly say YES. More proof here that the
facial dynasty isn't planning on going anywhere this Spring; it's blossoming
quite nicely like the little cherry blossoms outside my window. These groomed
lovelies probably smell just as good also. Did someone say SPRING FLING?!
