Random End of the Year Musing

Photobucket
Have beards officially gone from a sign of manliness, to the exact opposite of that? When is the last time you've seen a guy with a beard who was actually manly? If you have, you must still admit that the amount of absolutely, unquestionably unmanly men you've recently seen with beards highly outnumbers the number of bearded men you've recently seen who looked like they could stand up to a cool breeze.
That's lame.

NOTE: Sorry to the dude in this picture. You don't look very manly holding up the immense weight of your Pabst Blue Ribbon, but what do I know?

Hahaha, You may be onto something. I guess they are better than the hipster mustache craze thats been going on in recent years.

I wish I could un-see some of those mustaches. In recent years it had become known as the "rapists' facial hair of choice." Since hipsters rape culture, that seems about right.

And while we're at it, the whole Pabst Blue Ribbon thing sort of bugs me. Why do all the bars have to have Pabst be the $1-3$ cheap beer every time I go out to a show? I'm not picky so I'll go ahead and buy the Pabst to save a couple bucks, but god damn do I feel like a tool standing in there drinking the same beer as all the bearded, tattooed, biker vest wearing, smokers, when I'm just a normal dude who would rather drink a Budweiser. Hell, what am I saying, I just pony up the extra 50 cents lately and grab myself a Budweiser and just to be a dick. Or I just order a club soda with lemon and make all the youngster's drinking their Pabst feel cool and chuckle amongst their group of below average looking female friends. Ha, sorry for the nonsensical ramble.

No, man, I know exactly what you are talking about. I was at an event recently where I went out of my way to get a Budweiser as to avoid falling into the Pabst Ocean. Drinking a common domestic beer in full sight of hipsters has become one of the great pleasures of my 30's.

Awesome Nick, you just made my day. I too, have that weird sense of accomplishment downing a Budweiser while swimming in a sea of beards smoldering in American Spirit cigarette smoke. Fact is right now I have a partial beard not because I want to be hip, but because I'm old and lazy and shave every other Monday night, skipping last weeks shave day.

Lazy shavers unite! My shave day is Sunday. I don't think I've shaved twice in one week in four or five years. If I do, my face protests because it's so used to only having to deal with a blade every 168 hours. That said, I haven't gone more than three weeks since my kid was a newborn.
