Righto, now I am signed up and a member of the womb broomers Movember team, I need sponsors to help raise money and get blokeman up in the ranks of the mo’ money raisers.

To sponsor my Mo please go to http://www.movember.com/au/donate, enter my registration number which is 96285 and your credit card details. Or you can sponsor me by cheque made payable to the “Movember Foundation” clearly marking the donation as being for my Registration Number: 96285. Please mail cheques to: PO Box 292, Prahran VIC 3181. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

The money raised by Movember is donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue – the national depression initiative, which will use the funds to create awareness, fund research and increase support networks for those men who suffer from prostate cancer and male depression.

For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the detail at: Fundraising Outcomes.

Movember culminates at the end of the month at the Gala Partés. These glamorous and groomed events will see Tom Selleck and Borat look-a-likes battle it out for their chance to take home the prestigious Man of Movember title. If you would like to be part of this great night you’ll need to purchase a Gala Parté ticket .

Thanks blokes.

All men stand up and rejoice, Movember is once again upon us. What is Movember I hear you ask? Well Movember is the month formally known as November, the month when all men can revel in the manliness of their facial hair. I know for

real men like myself in reality Movember holds no real significance, since I already sport a manly butch tash that would make even Merve Hughes and David Boon quiver and cower it’s site.

However what is different about Movember is that we can get recognised for doing it, raise some “tash cash” for charity. The whole month is essentially a charity to highlight male health issues and also to sport a killer 70’s and 80’s tash to be proud of, but there are rules to follow.

1. Once registered, each Mo Bro must begin on the 1st of Movember with a clean shaven visage. Five-o’clock shadows at 10 am are considered ‘false starts.’ (participants will have to take their own ones and mail them no later than 11am on the 1st)
2. Each gentleman’s moustache must, through the entire month of Movember, adhere to the following guidelines:
a. At no time shall the aforementioned ‘mo’ join the sideburns — that’s a beard.
b. At no time shall the gentleman’s chin hair overshadow the Mo’s brilliance, nor may it join at the sides of the Mo — that’s a goatee.
c. For gentlemen who crave balance above all things, we will permit growth of a patch of the man’s own design under his bottom lip (aka a soul patch).
d. At no point may a gentleman’s eyebrows connect to the moustache. We most definitely do not endorse this.
3. Failure to observe these guidelines will, at the complete discretion of the Movember Committee, result in an embarrassing ejection from further Movember activities, including the Gala Parté. You do not desire this.
4. The Movember Committee accepts no responsibility for requests of heroism, increased female affection resulting in the alienation of girlfriends, increased senses of self-satisfaction, or any other of the potential side-effects of sporting a Movember mo.

So it’s time to stand up and be men, well at least for one month, grow your mo and wear it proud boys.

Well I guess every blog is kicked off with a welcome message or at least an explination as to why the internet needs another blog, and whilst I would like to claim I am creative, different or misunderstoon, the simple fact is,

I am not. I am a bloke, blokeman to be exact, and whilst some of my written communication has a certain level of elloquence, it makes me no less a bloke.

So pretty much all you are going to get in this post is a quick run down of what blokeman.com is about and what you can expect on this site.
It’s pretty straight forward really, it’s a blog about the lost art of being a bloke, blokey things, just general manliness. Sport, tits and cars really!

Though the apathy I feel in general for most subjects in life, may just make this a short-lived venture. We shall see I guess.
