Re: The Night Crew

Many years ago, I grew a long goatee for 2 months, dyed it pink, then cut it off a week later.

I just wish I had a picture of when I shaved my hair off back in the late 1990's.

Just buy a trimmer. Buzz that over your beard once or twice a week and you're done. I've got a Phillips one that even vacuums up the hair as it goes.

Re: The Night Crew

I haven't shaved in a few days, I'll let it go a few more days than make up my mind.

Re: The Night Crew

^Hey, good day?

I'm in a bit of a funk. I spent the day listening to Sigur Ros and taking long walks without my glasses on. Has anyone else noticed how music of the Shoegazing genre sounds like the world looks without your glasses?

Interesting you should mention it, tsq. I have become rather hooked on shoegaze/darkwave/ethereal/dreampop/whatever the frak you call it. Have you ever heard of these bands? They are some of my favorites:

Tearwave
Autumn's Grey Solace
Love Spirals Downwards
Black Tape for a Blue Girl

and, of course:

Cocteau Twins.

I love taking my glasses off sometimes when I head out. Currently just waiting for the Cup ... around 70 minutes until it's run again. Go Mad Rush!!!

I know the bands, but I'm more partial to the likes of Slowdive, Sigur Ros, and Asobi Seksu. But speaking of Cocteau Twins, I've recently bought the soundtrack to Mysterious Skin (a damn fine movie, based on a damn fine book; both movie and book have affected me more than any other), which is a collaberation between Robin Guthrie and Harold Budd. It's a gorgeous soundtrack (the also used some Slowdive and Sigur Ros in the film, but they're not included on the ST), I'd recommend it.

Re: The Night Crew

There's a genre of music called Shoegazing?

Is that because it's so boring?

Also try The Moon and the Melodies, which is Budd with all three Twins (actually Liz Fraser only sings on about half the tracks I think).
