Something something
 
Well I guess I should post a thingy, you know, a photo. Sadly the vast majority of my photos over the last couple of years are work stuff that I can't share, so here's some other crap.

A while back I finally got around to going through all the stuff of my dad's, and photographing it all. Partly because it was some cool stuff, and partly just to document it all. Here's a couple.

Good stuff Adam.

Mankins are lumps of cold, dead plastic. But that doesn't mean they don't turn me on.
With friends like these, who needs mankins? I do, that's who.
I love pinging my junk with a rubber band. Dr Snip taught me how.
I lead an underworld cult of mankin people.

50 years ago, everyone! Dad had a surprising number of shaving and sharpening-related items, as it turns out.

Not just 50 years ago! Some people still do it. Otherwise, why would they make products like this? http://www.mensbiz.com.au/razorpit-razor...pener.html

I have no idea, but one of my things-to-do is to find out, and if possible, transfer it to DVD, along with scanning several hundred similarly-aged slides.

Mens' Health Grooming award? WOW! That's a pretty elite circle of products, such as:

Umbrian Clay Mortifying Serum? I keep a tub of that under the sink in case I ever find myself shining. I wonder if it can "mattify" glossy prints. Hmmm ...

How does it go with the Lucky Tiger aftershave? Are you still mattified afterwards? Icon_cheesygrin

I discovered the hard way, Rudi, that Umbrian clay and Lucky Tiger spontaneously combust when brought into contact with one another. The resulti is ultra-mattification.

Sure. People are sick of being gouged for overpriced blade cartridges! Especially since the only reason they cost $4 each is because they are patented and no one but Gillette or Schick can manufacture them. So they turn to alternatives. Re-sharpening those cartridges is one option. The Dollar Shave Club is another.

As far as blades are concerned, I shave for about $0.20 - $0.40 per month. Usually it's closer to $0.20 since I only shave every other day at most. And I don't re-sharpen my blades. I just don't buy cartridges. Icon_smile

I used to shave with electric shavers pretty much all my life, since it's so convenient. I also used to hate shaving! It was a real chore. Then I discovered a better way (for me), and actually look forward to it. It's just as well, since I am going to have to keep shaving for the rest of my life whether I like it or not. Icon_lol

It's funny - I now find shaving with electrics noisy and unpleasant. The opposite of Zen. It is fast and convenient but, for me, a noisy and unpleasant drudgery.

You guys are bunch of babies. You only have to shave your face. I'll leave it at that.
BTW - women's razors cost more than guy's razors. What a stupid rip-off.

I never go clean cut anymore, just buzz off the stubble with a set of electric clippers every couple days. Easy peasy.

While shaving your head with a good electric, you can get some reading done.
