Happy Boxing Day... you wanna fight about it?!

To our dear friends in the United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Kenya, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago and some other Commonwealth nations... HAPPY BOXING DAY!

To all the rest... wanna fight about it?!




PS In the meantime, get this awesome stache fightin' T from Etsy (where else):


Game, Set, Mustache

You don't want to get in between an activist and their cause, nor should you want to strip outside on a breezy February morning in NYC... but, you should want to commend Holly Van Voast (who the NY Daily News describe as a "46-year-old serial stripper") for her killer stache.

Thanks Holly. Lesson learned... When your point cannot be made by writing, scream; when screaming wont help, get naked. When nudity just wont cut it... don a fake stache (if you can't grow one).

Kudos, way to #proveit.




Brand Bowl Misses the Mark -- Will Ferrell to the Rescue

So, the Super Bowl is over, the more bearded team won, Colin Kaepernick will finally be forced to grow an actual beard vs. his awkward 'goatee'... all good things right?

Well, the commercials this year were something dreadful... really uninspiring (e.g. sleeping with horses sounds horrid; God didn't create farmers, he WAS one, Adam just pilfered his crops!), disengaging and most of all hairless. This is a shameful representation of our culture, and the bearded and facial hair arc we all know we are at the apex of (or better yet, climbing toward). This was a missed opportunity...

Unless you lived in a small part of the United States (tiny portions of Texas, Oklahoma and Montana, or perhaps Sweden)... then you saw a Will Ferrell Old Milwaukee commercial during your version of Super Bowl XLVII. Thanks Yahoo! News (and  of Shutdown Cornerfor the find. Enjoy the below folks, really, let your inhibition go and let the ad take you to that special, warm place... a place, with mustaches and better kissing abilities than Bar Refaeli.

P.S. This awesome stache on Mr. Ferrell almost makes us forgive his shaving of Conan O'Brien's chin mane... almost.


Big (stache) Ben


Kudos to our mustached brethren across the Atlantic... this is freaking amazingly awesome. Grow it out, grow it proud!

Best Reason to Vote

The Economy? Jobs? Foreign Policy? Healthcare? Energy Independence? No... Helping avoid beard or moustache-cide, especially during Movember.

Look, we're not going to baited into the political discussions of he said or what the other guy said, all we know is that David Axelrod, a senior adviser to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, said Wednesday he will shave off his 40 y/o mustache on national television if Obama loses Minnesota, Michigan or Pennsylvania on Election Day.

Here's a clip of the testy proposal on Joe Scarborough, the host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”:

So... MN, MI, PA... the ball is in your court, or on your chin and upper lip that is. You know what to do... #proveit.


10 Qs with Jason Miller

"Why keep shaving when I can have a werewolf fist on my face?"
-- Jason Miller

Jason Miller () was an intern at the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show (aka Elvis Duran and the Morning Zoo, aka the Elvis Duran Show, aka the number 1 syndicated radio morning show in the country) this past summer, and yes it's a show I am a fairly devout fan of. I went from a hater to a convert this past year, when I started to drive towork from time to time in the morning. I used to listen to this show all the time a long long time ago, when my brother would drive me places, and I hated it... Why? I can't possibly imagine now... it's a motley crew of characters, topics, and verbal mayhem, which is squarely up my alley.

Jason stood out from this year's cadre of interns at the show... mainly because he did a hilarious video series for called The Intern Interview, and, he had an awesome beard... Though everyone on the show is talented in their own right, Jason is clearly the only one with any facial hair to speak of, definitely the most fierce.

Wanting to give a the beardo like him the spotlight he deserves, I reached out to the show to make an interview with the owner of The Double Goat (see photo below) happen. When I found Jason, he was back in Iowa, scratching his chin and still hoping that the male cast of the show would indulge him in a Beard-Off... so, c'mon Elvis, Skeery, TJ, et al PROVE IT!

 Photo credit: Eric Miller1) Tell us about being an intern at the Elvis Duran Show, was it a Zoo?

Interning for Elvis Duran and The Morning Show was easily the most incredible experience I’ve had. It was such an amazing opportunity to work with best in the business and share my passion with them. Never a dull day and everyone has a blast working every day. I don’t think I can even call it work because it was just pure fun.

2) Is being on the radio a good pickup line still? Do you use it often? I’m sure Skeery Jones used it at least 5 times just today…

You honestly wouldn’t believe it but yea it definitely works. I’ve never flat out used it on purpose but when you are at a bar remote broadcasting live with headphones on and looking the part, girls definitely notice you. If anything it’s just an easier way to approach women at the bar and have a reason to talk to them. After that it’s more on your personality.

3) Do your stache hairs every get caught in the mic?

So far I’ve done a good job at keeping the beard out of the mic when it counts. But I would be lying if I said I haven’t rubbed my chin on the mic to see what it sounds like…

4) Is radio on the way out like sideburns or roaring back like the handlebar mustache?

Well I would have to say neither; it’s really just changing. Internet radio is becoming more prominent which is why they launched iHeartRadio.  I think morning show formats are really what’s keeping traditional radio alive.

5) Do you think Elvis will look good with a beard, or a stache… maybe a nice Dali will suit him, or a chin strap?

I think Elvis would look great with beard! I think he should go for the Kimbo Slice / Rick Ross look. But I also think he could pull off a clean Fu Manchu.

6) We hear TJ has/had some gnarly body hair… would he grow the biggest beard on the show, should there be a challenge?

TJ does a great job at keeping it just under the stubble zone. But I see the potential for greatness. If anything I think Skeery would be the biggest competitor. I’m always down for a Beard-Off.

7) What was your favorite Intern Interview of the series you spearheaded for the show?

Oh boy that’s a tough one. All four interviews were different in subtle ways, which was really me trying out different things. I definitely loved the Greg T interview because it was the first one. Had a blast with Carla Marie, she was hilarious to work with. The Ronnie interview was mostly us goofing around and seeing what we came up with which was a riot. But my favorite one in terms of conducting the interview was Skeery. Only because he was the one person that would make me drop character and crack up. I think it was because I caught him so off guard with it that his reactions just got me. But end result wise I can’t say, I enjoy them all!

8) What’s with your career path: you’re been to college, went to the #1 syndicated radio show in the country HQd in the best city in the world, and then left for… Iowa? What gives?

Hahahaha well let me explain…Born and raised in Duluth Minnesota but I go to college in Des Moines Iowa where I also work at the radio station KISS 107.5. We broadcast Elvis in the mornings so that was really how I first was introduced to the morning show. I then landed my internship for the summer and unfortunately had to come back to finish my last year of school. Don’t worry I don’t plan on being in Iowa much longer…

9) What advice would you give the young kids reading this interview about starting a career in Radio or show business broadly?

Well what I would say for not just radio but most industries is get your foot in the door. At a younger age the easiest way is via internship. But interns come and go so you have to stand out from all the interns before you, the other possible interns you will be working with, and the interns they haven’t even had yet. You have to be doing the things no one else is doing and let your passion and hard work ethic shine above the rest. After that it’s all a matter of constantly pushing yourself and learning as much as you can. Ultimately it comes down to passion. You can teach people the skills and for the most part how to do things, but you can’t teach passion. So follow your dreams and never stop till you get where you want to be. Don’t be afraid to show it and people will start paying attention to your actions.

10) What advice would you give non bearded men looking to take the plunge and dive head first into facial hair growing.

Everyone knows coffee and whiskey are the keys to a face full of hair…but really if you aren’t gifted in full force beard growth abilities, then I would say grow what you can and stick with it. Everyone has a transitional phase where you start to look like a freak…you just have to be dedicated to getting it as full as possible and then deciding what look to best roll with.


ESPN's Progressive Stache

Logging in earlier today I couldn't help but notice a fast paced, hairy looking promo for some gambling, betting, insurance product? That can't be right... was it something about cash for staches... insurance for facial hair...? Color me confused.
Upon some googling, and internet super sleuthing, what i found is a campaign by Progressive insurance and ESPN called 'Streak for the Cash.' A fantasy betting game, where one must choose from a list of various team matchups across different sports, and participants must predict the winner of one of the matchups. If you build the longest streak you win... moreover if you beats the Progressive Messenger for monthly wins, you win even more cash.

Still confused what mustaches have to do with this... well, the Progressive Messenger is the one with the stache... this smells of facial hair bandwagon-ing, reeks! Well, in lieu of the real (looking) mustache on the dude, we'll let this slide, this time.


Sarah Silverman's Hairy Lips

Our latest follow on Twitter, may also be our favorite.

What say you Sarah? Does the carpet match the drapes? This and much much more, if you grant us an interview about your choice to go natural... c'mon, #proveit!



Donnie Wahlberg tweeted this photo of himself and fellow New Kids on the Block members. Did you notice the matching mustaches or the shirtless bathroom setting first?



Happy Bday Bobby!

Today is Bob Dylan's 71st bday... that is all.


@SteveCarell's 'Hairy' Entrance

Steve Carell is on twitter! And his picture is mustached... even if it's not a beard, and totally fake, it is black and white and exquisitely old school, so we love it. Welcome to 2006 Steve, come on in the water is warm.


Blood Sugar Sex Mustache

Red Hot Chili Peppers have just released their video for the first single off of 'I'm With You,' the troupe's latest album... Love it/them or hate it/them (the new guitarists is a robot, we are sure of it), what we absolutely love is the now permanent (and prominent) stache on the upper lip of front-man Anthony Kiedis. Kudos!


Mustache Hope

"The time is always right to do what is right." Martin Luther King Jr

Honoring the memory of Dr. King we often forget, the man also rocked a pretty amazing stache... we musn't forget Dr. King's willingness to not conform to the fresh faced madness of the 50s and 60s and rock what he wanted, when he wanted, because it was the right thing to do... The memory of his daring actions, ideals and ideas should linger longer than one day a year.


Braun's NYC Demographics

Thanks to the myriad of beard scouts we have out in the field, whether they are aware of their roles or not (in this case Mido Aboshihata aka @mid0 is not) we find or stumble on awesome gems... we love them even more if they are in New York or San Francisco (B-a-B home markets)...

Check out this awesome (and accurate) ad by Braun, a frenemy of B-a-B, near NYC subways.

Dear Braun, we'd support you buddy, if you ditched the 'shave' part of this 'business strategy' of yours... style and trim is ALL you need. Take note, Braun... if that is your real name.


Tyrannical Hirsute-ness

All praise be to Sacha Baron Cohen and his forthcoming new film The Dictator. Cohen, who plays a Middle East dictator who is very well represented in the hairy chin area... Keeping up his support of facial fortitude he started with other characters from such classics as Borat (stache) and Ali G (chin strap).


We approve this movie, without support of the actions Cohen is so capable to pretend to endorse... Tyrants are bad, beards are good. Dont blame the beard and enjoy the show!


Stache 2012

We have always said at B-a-B that facial hair transcends politics. Our love and devotion to promoting global hirsute appreciation goes beyond and above any other social issue (or fiscal)... that said, it should be the goal of all beardos and stachemates to eliminate pogonophobia from all corners of the world. Arguably, the best way to do this is to elect officials with facial hair.

Those mates are hard to find (and even harder to find are the gals)... but, we have found one. If you haven't met or heard of him yet, please meet Herman Cain, he is currently running for president of the United States. Like or dislike his politics, or that of his GOP compadres (all of whom, including Michele Bachmann) are facial hairless.

Herman, who recently won the Florida Straw Poll, you have our support... just don’t shave. Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can grow for your country.
