Just as I finish up a stint on the Lemmy Kilmister look-alike tour and I shave my Ron Jeremy/Kraven the Hunter facial hair, beards are back in style.
The project began on January 2, 2006 (after forgetting to take a picture on January 1) with the original intent of growing a beard from New Yearâ€™s Day to St. Patrickâ€™s Day, not unlike the residents of Shamrock, Texas. During the process, I found watching the bread grow (scraggly and unimpressive as it was) mesmerizing, so I expanded the project to a whole year.
The warming weather and my wife’s wishes be damned!
I’m getting the band back together! I’m growing the beard again!
