Not until we regain a functional government. I sort of look like George Washington now.

Yes it's true. I measure our government by the length of my hair. Sorta.

The best from an angry man...?.. Not convinced...

"BABBOY (anonymous) says…

I buzz it every so on often.

Tomorrow, they will ask how often I take shower? (every day).....

Then, how often I brush my teeth? (daily and regularly).

Then, how often do I eat? (every hour except when)

How often do I wash my hands? (before eating, after going to the bathroom or shaking hands with a republican)

How often do I go to the bathroom (frequently -- I drink lots of pop)

And so on............"

BABBOY, from you, eloquent. Right on , Man. You are one of my favorite posters. I like grumpy, but, dude!, that was real. Real works better than grumpy. ROCK ON, Man! And, you gave me a needed laugh.....Yeah, maybe misunderstood, but you are cool. - Odeo

"I'm going with Ronaldo the next time he goes back to his homeland..."

well, a nod's as good as a wink to a blind owl, T_O_Bobster. I chased that gawker a lil' harder & watched the number. would post it & enlighten all the brethren but am afraid ms. crump would be envious of all the fine moves. How long does it take to get a passport these days?

four or so times a year, my hair doesn't grow too fast most of the time.

Larry's retiring next year, d*mn.
he's really good with the beard.


Roe: here's an idea.
get moustache wax, grow a really big moustache instead, big handlebar moustache, see how the little woman likes that.

"porn moustache???" maybe it secretly turns her on? maybe she's secretly one of these womyn who are insanely jealous?

If you don't have, or have never seen the hard-to-find Wattstax documentary, I would highly recommend getting it. I ordered it from amazon about 10 yrs. ago. The Wattstax festival in 1972 was a 7th year celebration of the Watts riots of '65, held at LA Coliseum, headlined by Isaac Hayes and featuring a ton of other talent, as well as candid interviews with common brothers and future celebrities like Ted Lange, who would go on to play Isaac on The Love Boat. If I could only keep one of my many DVD's, it would be Wattstax. And hey, this silly white boy always thought Barbara Mandrell sang "If Lovin' You Is Wrong". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWAUCV...

Man, y'all got me jammin' & feelin' oh so fly with all the great tunes! Am grateful for that WattsTax vid. From now on I will think of Watts I will think of that & smile. This home schooling is fun!

If I thought I could look as cool as David Crosby I'd grow out the remainder. He almost cut his hair, ya know. Happened just the other day...

46 and no gray yet. However, come what may, I have taken a long-standing vow that I will never put shoe polish in my hair. That's just absurd.

I have long hair so I only think about it 2-3 times a year. But by then I'm split end city and the hair peeps lecture me and tell me I'm naughty and you know what? Doesn't really make me want to do this more often but thanks. Maybe I'll just the Crystal Gayle from now on.

Remember Ken Koenigs and Paul Mokeski?

Getting back to my "back in the day" with a mention of Dr. Koenigs. Mokeski was one of the non prettiest people to ever play at the University.

I hope you people don't ask anymore questions about hygiene. Poor hygiene? I have NO hygiene. Ever since I was a kid I have a phobia about falling in the shower, just like Elvis. Mom would tell me I had potatoes growing in my ears and I needed a bath. So I would go in the bathroom nekked and run the water for 10 minutes while I sat on the toilet reading dad's Playboys. In grade school I got sent to the nurse's office about once a week. The teachers kept telling me to say "Hi" to someone named "Gene". But I never had a school nurse named Gene. I still don't know what they were talking about.

I wish black women would go back to the Natural. It's totally sexy and I'm totally serious. Hell, I would sport the Natural if I had the right hair. On the other hand, the white man 'fro doesn't work at all. Remember Ken Koenigs and Paul Mokeski?

The Mayor is no sour pickle. He has a great sense of humor and a ton of common sense. He's been cutting my hair since 1984, which might have been the last time he raised his prices. Misterlee, I don't think I've ever seen you without the muttonchops. Do not shave them. That look totally rocks!

I cut my own every day. I also shave my chest, arms and eyebrows. The nose and ear hair can be a problem at my age but I have one hell of a head of hair. I got it from my uncle/ mom's side of the family, like everybody. I hang my head over a 5 gallon bucket and collect the hair in it, along with navel fuzz. Every 3 months I knit a sweater. Got to go green, but I still say the worst thing Bush ever did was to sign that damn lightbulb law. I will not forgive that.

Sarah, just an FYI, to let you know. Bacon grease is really not a good moisturizer for hair, or anything other than fried eggs...Sorry...

Bill Lee 2 years, 6 months ago

Whenever I get tired of how long it is, I cut it. That varies a lot. The same goes with facial hair. I've had muttonchops for several months and am probably going to shave them off in the next couple of days. I may or may not leave a moustache. It will depend on my mood at the time.

Losing or gaining weight takes time. There's nothing I can do about my height, but my hair is something I can control. Well, all except for where it won't grow anymore.

RoeDapple 2 years, 6 months ago

Yeah . . . then I get the "You should try the Just For Men" hair color. To hell with that!! I like the salt and pepper look of my hair. Although recently there appears to be more and more salt and less pepper . . .

Odeo 2 years, 6 months ago

Skin it, Roe. Bet it will make you look younger than your years. Speaking from experience on that one. I had a "Van Dyke" - commonly mistaken for a "Go-Tee" that was long enough, at one time, to wrap around a few of my fingers. I let it go. Most people thought I was at least ten years younger, and happier. Roll the dice, man. Like I said. You can always grow it back. I have not.

When my folks lived on New York street we had a retired barber for a neighbor. Before that my dad cut our hair, every one of us got a 50's buzz cut, like it or not. Haircuts were a buck and a quarter back then, but old man Porter had a barber chair in the kitchen and would cut our hair for 50 cents, any way we liked it. The Beatles were beginning to tour about then, I believe I heard him coin the phrase,"Damn Longhairs!". Good old guy though . . .

RoeDapple 2 years, 6 months ago

Rock on, Odeo! Real men cut their own hair! When I trim the old mustache it looks like I did it with a chainsaw. Nobody says anything though, they know I might shave the damn thing off if they do.

RoeDapple 2 years, 6 months ago

Every five weeks. Which brings up a gripe of mine. These ladies can come home from the hair stylist with their hair curled, straightened, colored, bleached, highlighted, . . . in short, anything goes from the confines of the hairdresser's lair and we men are supposed to fall all over ourselves raving about the new do. I, on the other hand, have been tired of wearing this 1970's porno looking mustache since, well, the 1970's. Yet, if I threaten to cut it away, I get the old,"NO! You'll look like a dork! Your nose is too big! The kids and/or the grandchild won't like it!". Jeez . . . how old do I have to be to be the boss of me . . .?

Odeo 2 years, 6 months ago

Me? I have been cutting my own hair for about 15+ years plus the neighbors kids. Can do it in the dark. All by feel, no mirrors to look at. Actually, that is the worst thing to do if cutting your own hair--have made a few mistakes. Otherwise, just skin it, unfortunately, had to do that a couple times quite a while ago. Live and learn... Heck, it grows back anyway,

“Every two months.”...Come on Andy. The pic does do you some discredit. However, I do not think you are a serial killer. Try getting it cut more often, lady.

0

Odeo 2 years, 6 months ago

Sorry, Matt. If it is that infrequent right now, with what looks like a beginning to a "comb-over" and "circus wings" on the side. Just skin it, man. Live through the beard if have to. But, seriously, ship is going down, man. Skin it.
