Hair Fun

So I have this thing that I do when I jump into the pool. I always take a quick leap and while in mid air I try to stop for a split second and think, 'What the hell am I doing?" I don't know how cold the water is? Am I ready for the shock? Then realize that I'm pretty committed at that point and here it comes. Well, I've never really liked my hair, ever. I've done a few things with it over the years and it basically always sucks. Thin, flat and stringy. So if it's not going to cooperate, screw it. It's gone. Here is the before shot. I hadn't had a haircut in about 7 months. It was about 8 to 10 inches long I guess. I decided to just start cutting before I thought about it too much. You know, just jumping in. Oh, also, enjoy the nudity.

Here is the part where I've committed to cutting it. I actually took a second here and realized what I was doing. Trying to think if I could pull off leaving it like this. It is San Francisco after all.

and at this point I realized the comb over wasn't going to work. I've always thought that the comb over was wasted on the old. Any reason why the youngsters don't try it? Basically shave the center part out of a perfectly full head of hair and comb baby. Anyway, it seems kind of stinky and I decided to finish the job.

So here it is, my scalp. It's OK I suppose. Easy to take care of but it doesn't leave you with many hair options. And it seems like cheating a bit. Not much imagination required for that 'concentration camp' look.

8th Annual Bring Your Own Big Wheel Event

OK, so I'm getting all viral and shit but could anything be more San Francisco: childish, pointless, (most likely) drunken mayhem. An annual event of careening idiots in banana costumes, riding Big Wheels down Lombard Street. All set to the thrashing beauty of Motorhead's Ace of Spades. Check out the video and let's check it out Easter Sunday. Good timing too, after those skull cracking bricks, we will rise from the dead like zombies, like Jesus... oh wait, that blasphemous, like San Francisco. Enjoy (PS - Ben - bachelor party idea?)
