HAPPY NO SHAVE NOVEMBER!!!!!!!!!
Today we salute the Nashville Predators captain and star defenseman, Shea Weber. He is a fine and shining example of the playoff beard. Unfortunately for Weber he’s been stuck in Trashville playing for the Sexual Predators for his whole career and they’ve never made it far enough into the playoffs to unleash this beard’s potential. I’ll admit they’ve gotten much better in recent years but Weber’s beard really hasn’t been given it’s fair chance, but then again neither has their franchise. They play a cold weather sport in a town full of a bunch of toothless hillbillies who throw catfish on the ice to show their support in lieu of actually knowing what the hell is going on or how hockey is even played and their team is owned by a empty-headed country singer from Oklahoma who probably doesn’t know what an ice-cube is let alone an ice rink. Weber’s beard, much like the Predator’s franchise, is just a glimpse of what could be. Hell I bet if this guy ever made it game 7 of the Stanley cup finals he would look like a member of ZZ Top. His beard would look so glorious that win or lose they would firmly place Lord Stanley Cup right in his beard like a child sitting in a bean bag chair. Weber is a big bad dude playing for a dark horse team rocking a dark horse beard. I hope for his sake the Preds can get their shit together so we can see what this beard is really made of. For now Weber’s beard lays dormant in the shadows of the playoff beard world, but someday his beard shall have it’s comeuppance and finally show us what truly can be, and for that, we salute you.
HAPPY NO SHAVE NOVEMBER!!!!!!!!!!
Today we salute musician ?uestlove. Quest rocks that old school funk beard. His kicks beats on a drum set like you ain’t never heard, and it all starts from the hair in his buuuurd. The beauty of this beard starts all the way on the top of his head with one of the most recognizable afro’s in the music industry today. The seamless connection from ‘fro to beard really brings it out. The beard itself is scraggly at best but the afro accentuates it so well that you can’t help but be impressed with this man’s ability to grow out hair on his face and head. The “Cherry on top” is the afro pick, which he could just as easily put in his beard. Just like his name, ?uestlove’s beard brings a lot of mystery to the game, and begs the question, “what’s going on in that jaw ‘fro of his”? I could easily see ?uestlove breaking a drum stick while kickin a funky jam and without skipping a beat pulling a drumstick out of his beard as if it was nothing but natural to him. ?uestlove and his band The Roots are currently the in-house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon which is really unfortunate when you compare the talent of The Roots (or even ?uestlove alone) to that no talent SNL ruining hack Jimmy Fallon. But alas, we shall all live on in admiration of the glory that is Quest’s beard. ?uestlove’s musicianship definitely brings him to the forfront of the music community but his beard brings him to forefront of no shave November and for that, we salute you.
HAPPY NO SHAVE NOVEMBER!!!!!!!!!!!
And happy election day as well. I’m sure we’ve figured out by now that Barack Obama has been re-elected to a second term. I’m also sure that you’re all sick of hearing about this election, so lets a take a moment to look back in our nations history and honor the first FULL beard elected into office. Yes I’m aware that Lincoln was before Grant, and that Lincoln had a beard. But Lincoln’s beard, a great and unique beard at that, was not a full beard, it was a chinstrap. It took the general who won the Civil war to finally bring the full beard to the white house. A thin but distinguished beard. It showed great authority and commanded respect on the battlefield and in the office. Truly a great beard for a great man, trite and true the beard represents the Red, White and Blue. Today candidates and expected to keep a clean-shaven and clean-cut look to appear slick and professional and it pains me to say that our president can’t even grow a beard (see for yourself here http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/12/04/obama-i-cant-grow-facial_n_148545.html). I hope beards somehow make a comeback in the political world but until then lets give reverence to he first of four beards that would make it into the oval office. Ulysses S. Grant was the first full beard into the white house and for that, we salute you.
HAPPY NO SHAVE NOVEMBER!!!!!!!!!!!
Today we salute the beard of actor Jason Bateman. Bateman is a great actor with an interesting acting record and a beard that we just don’t get to see enough. Bateman’s first sign of a beard showed up in the horrendous sequel “Teen Wolf Too”. The movie is completely unwatchable but we see Bateman in a full body beard, although fake, still interesting to see at such a young age. Today every once n a while Jason busts out the beard and my goodness it’s great. The Bateman beard falls into the category of “hot homeless guy”. He looks like he just woke up from an underpass, yet women still find him irresistibly sexy, I just don’t get it, but good for him. Bateman is not really known as a mover or shaker in the beard world as he almost always appears clean shaven on camera, but I don’t think any of us would be opposed to seeing him rocking the facial fortress more often. We can be almost certain that when Arrested Development comes out next year Bateman won’t be wearing a beard… but a man can dream. Although he doesn’t wear it often Bateman still wears the beard well and for that, we salute you.
HAPPY NO SHAVE NOVEMBER!!!!
Today we honor the beard of The Black Keys’ frontman Dan Auerbach. Danny boy was born in Akron, Ohio (tough break) of a Celtic Mother and A Jewish Father; beards are in his blood. Auerbach’s band, The Black Keys, is a straight up blues rock band and you can see their style in his beard. Auerbach’s beard is rough, ragged and shows the passion and determination of an artist, just like the blues. I fell as though each strand of his beard hair has a story to tell about how much hard work and effort goes into this musicians struggles. His beard is a true artists beard and is portrayed as such. I admire and respect the sheer length of the beard as well as its thickness and true color. Dan Auerbach can rock the hell out of an arena as well as a beard and for that, we salute you.
HAPPY NO SHAVE NOVEMBER!!!!!!!!
Today we celebrate the beard of rap artist Rick Ro$$. No doubt this beard is hustlin’ every day. Rick Ross styles my favorite beard look: the big guy beard. Rick Ross’ size lets people know that he’s a man that indulges in the finer things in life… often, and what better way to complement that than a big burly beard. Rick Ross is straight up gansta, and his beard embodies his thug life style. He wants people to know that he spits rhymes, makes bills, and don’t take no shit from no body. Let me tell you folks, the beard says all of that and more. It’s a burly son of a gun and powerful, it makes itself known and leaves a lasting image in your mind. Simply put, Rick Ross’ beard is an unstoppable force that is not to be reckoned with. He often refers to himself as Rick Ross “the boss” and I truly believe his beard is what puts him at boss status/ His song “Hold Me Back” says it all. (if you haven’t seen the music video for this i highly suggest it, Rick hardly wears a shirt, always wears a beard, and doesn’t give a fuck,. ( I have the video posted at the bottom). I can’t say I listen to the man’s music too much, but he’ll always my respect thanks to his powerful beard, and for that, we salute you!

HAPPY NO SHAVE NOVEMBER!!!!
Today we salute film legend, George Lucas. George is most well-known for his creation of the space opera Star Wars. A creative mastermind ,he has given us one of the most sensational and incredible movie sagas of all time. Who would have thought from one beard could come so many great ideas. Recently his beard sold the rights of Star Wars to Disney and claimed that he will donate 4.05 billion of his new earnings to a Disney foundation focused on education; that’s quite a generous beard if you ask me. But what impresses me the most is George’s unwavering support for the beards. Try to find a picture of Lucas without a beard; those pictures are few and far between. Lucas’ masterpiece “Star Wars Episode IV:A New Hope” was released in 1977 and even then we see his beard at the age of 33, so to my count he has been consistently wearing a beard for 53 years, not including the years before ’77 that I can’t be certain of. George’s Star Wars series is certainly an artistic masterpiece but if you ask me his beard is even better and for that, we salute you.
