Warning: The following post is mostly content-free and full of boring minutiae! Buy a case and share with your friends!

I shaved off my moustache this morning, and now I have a clean-shaven upper lip for the first time in 13-14 years. I first grew a moustache two years earlier to that, and the last time I was 'stasheless lasted one week. It was odd to see my face in the mirror, all moony and sometimes reflecting back at me what appeared to be a bad photocopy of my teenage face. I'm thinking muttonchops are next.

What inspired you, if you don't mind my asking?

I've got a goatee now and have had it for close to a year, the longest amount of time I've ever sported facial hair. I think there will come a day (maybe this summer) when I want to shave it off, but it'll be a hurdle since it is semi-permanent now.

No one thing, really. Some grey hairs here and there, the need to trim the damn thing every couple of weeks, and the growing feeling that I should see what my face looks like at least once a decade.

Ah naked face... we have beard growing season in New Engand. Some people shaved for "spring" since it was getting "warm."

Those poor dummies are sorry now - we had a cold snap....

I went the rest of the way tonight and shaved off my little goatee. This I regret. Now I look a little like I did as a teenager and a little like I just ate a teenager.

Muttonchops are so in this season.

(David S. Ware is new to me. He's pretty great. Thanks!)

Glad you dig him! He's a monster of a player.

Hey, if you're interested in the new wave of free jazz, you should check out New York Is Now by Phil Freeman, which has sections on Ware, as well as Matthew Shipp and William Parker and some of the other major players. Phil's a friend of mine, but I'd recommend this book even if he weren't.
