They See Him Ridin', They Be Hatin'

Yesterday Dennis Hopper died. And I'm a little more distraught than someone who didn't know him ought to be. I've only seen four of his movies and that includes 'Speed' so thats really only counts as three. Yes, he had cancer, blahblah he probably shouldn't have lived as long as he did blahdyblah blargh. Still doesn't change the fact that he was dope. As fuck. And I think thats the real reason I'm mourning. 'Cause that man was fly, even at 74.

And we cannot ignore his iconic stache from his 1969 classic Easy Rider.

This moustache gets Hopper (Billy) and Fonda (Wyatt) in all kinds of trouble. I mean look at it. That stache knows how to start shit. What a flavor-saver that is. It's slightly lopsided and all kinds of wild. Perfekt. You don't need an upper-lip with a stache like that. noway, nohow.

But seriously, they get in deep shit for riding hogs and lookin' fine. And I don't want to spoil anything but people in 1969 apparently wanted to kill wild ones like Billy. I'd say its from repressed Christian angst and confusion caused by his and Wyatt's bad-boy charm. Heck, if I were a clean-shaven Christian from bumblefuck-nowhere, I'd be jealous too.

Here's a goodbye to Hopper, who we hope to see in stache-heaven.


PS - remember that he will always live on in Swingvote

Facial Hair Friday

Figured I'd try a weekly mini-post in addition to my random lengthy posts. Let me know if its awesome like a Power-Stache or flops like a crustache. My idea was that I'd pick a picture and use less than 250 characters to talk about it, kindof like a longer, but awesomer, tweet.


Ciscoe Morris is the host of a radio gardening show. More like the host of the stache of my dreams. The man is duel-wielding a green thumb and a moustache. What a combo, and by combo I mean a spicy chick'n crisp combo from BK.

Redford, Then and Now

Major realization today: Johnny Depp borrowed his acting chops (and facial-hair chops) from Robert Redford. It helps that he looks a lot like him. That was a surprise to me too. I always imagined that Brad Pitt or Owen Wilson were closer to Redford's doppelgangers, but look at these photos:

Holy Shit. Even though you can clearly see Paul Newman over his shoulder, I am completely convinced thats Johnny Depp in both pictures, with the same fantastic stache. Props to the guy for the quality stache, but I imagined he was more of 'a man of many mustaches'. But look at their expressions: Redford's stache doesn't even quiver as he prepares to pistol-whip the chump who calls him a cheat. You know who that chump is? Sam Elliott. As nice as Redford's stache is, Elliott's stache can bend Sundance Kid's bullets.

Back to Depp. His expression is slightly exaggerated but still similar to Redford's. One elicits annoyed, the other concerned. Jack Sparrow's stache actually looks a lot like Redford's here too, but the pictures deceiving. All the points Depp loses with his scraggly Sparrow stache are made up by his epic beaded goatee. Epic as in I may have once had goat cheese so good that I mentioned in public that I would marry it (yes, I do mean the goat). That epic. Plus he's sexy as hell. Johnny Depp, not the goat.

To Johnny Depp, the modern Robert Redford (and his moustaches). Scha-wing.

Playoff Beards

The Flyers are fresh off their amazing comeback over the Bruins Friday night. And so are their playoff-beards. Well, febreze-fresh that is. Naturally all hockey players have playoff facial hair in one form or another, but there are a few standouts. Take Simon Gagne for example.

Normally on the stubbly-side, Gagne's playoff-beard is lookin' fine.

Michael Leighton is the new goalie and I totally dig the full beard. It does look a little Keanu Reeves (his beard not his looks. well maybe a little of his looks too). But I'm confident he'll learn and let it grow a little longer. So much beard potential!

Look at this friggin' beard love connection: Ville Leino and Scott Hartnell
Leino's beard looks like its made of solid gold and Hartnell's beard is complemented by his jew-fro. What a combo! and by combo I definitely mean a large Steakhouse XT Burger combo with extra zesty sauce for your fries from BK. fucking delicious man.
