NSN 2011

Well here we are again, another year of furry faces and a fun yearly tradition.

I think I may have received my first troll comment on the blog!

There's no such thing as "No Shave November". It's called Movember, and it's been around for years and years. Staging this fake nonsense during Movember would be like showing up to a breast cancer event in a t-shirt promoting colonoscopies.

It's Movember. Google it, learn it, do it right, and stop undermining the real one.
I've known about No Shave November just about as long (if not longer) than Movember has been around, and I personally think NSN brings more awareness to the Movember/charity movement during this month.

Are you participating this year?

Another Year Another Beard

Well it's that time of the year again, I hope you are participating in No Shave November! No excuses.

If you need a refresher on the rules, here ya go:

-Guys - No shaving of the face

-Girls - No shaving of the legs

-In the United States - Keep the hair growing at least until Thanksgiving. (This way you can look fresh and clean for family)

-You are allowed to trim at 15 days, however, this is strongly discouraged.

-Rest of the world - You are asked to participate until the end of the month, besides, it'll help you stay warm.

Now start growing!

Rocky and Balls record song for charity

Rocky and Balls a British female duet has just released a Movember themed song called "The Mo Song". You can purchase it for a name your price deal at their site.

The proceeds will go to The Prostate Cancer Charity and we would love it if you could all buy a copy since it is for a very very very good cause!

In addition, we will keep a track of your names, if you purchase the song, and feature them in our music video when we finally get together to record it! Be part of Rocky and Balls history ;)

It is a minimum of $2 so everyone is donating about a british pound, but think of the good that could do!

If you haven't heard "The Beard Song" by the Sophie Madeleine half of the Rocky and Balls duo, check it out as well.

No Shave November Wiki Update

By far the most traffic I receive on this blog finds its way here through search engine searches of "no shave november wiki" and "no shave november wikipedia." This is presumably to find information regarding the wonderful tradition that is No Shave November.

Unfortunately, the No Shave November wikipedia page does not exist (anymore). Back in 2006 I posted about this tragedy, and about how a certain wikipedia administrator felt that No Shave November is in fact a hoax and not a real celebration.

Well it turns out another wikipedia administrator is now putting roadblocks in the path of a real wikipedia page. Turns out user Gogo Dodo feels that a No Shave November wikipedia page does not qualify under certain wikipedia restrictions. After looking at the said restrictions I don't think a No Shave November wikipedia page should be turned down, if done properly.

Please leave a note on Gogo Dodo's user talk page on wikipedia, and let him know that this is in fact a real tradition. And if you happen to be a seasoned wikipedia editor or contributor I would encourage you to use your knowledge and skills to help us get an honest to goodness page about No Shave November.

Facial Hair is Sexy

If you haven't heard yet, People magazine just released their latest "Sexiest Man Alive" report.

Check out this summary from the Fresno Beehive.

As you look through those pictures, what is one important theme that you can see? Yes, you are right, a majority of the guys have some kind of facial hair (and some a 5 o'clock shadow). A coincidence? I don't think so.

Facial hair isn't just for faces anymore

If humans can have facial hair why can't other things join the fun?

This Mustache Head Badge from etsy.com can be a great addition to your bike (you do ride a bike, don't you?), and maybe you won't feel so bad when you give your bike a name.

Next time you ride your bike use this stylish addition to make your bike stand out from the rest.

Real People, Real Facial Hair

I feature famous beards and moustaches all the time here on the No Shave November blog, but do real people have facial hair?

Well, according to Below The Nose, a lot of people have moustaches. These guys photograph one guy a day in real life that has a moustache, and there are special posts on Fridays. Check it out, and if you are sporting the stache, you may even get photographed someday.

I have talked on this blog before about Kenny Rogers, because in all honesty he has a pretty awesome beard.

This is also evident when art is created depicting this fact.
