110813_vanilla_ice_465_apBlokeman is back with a brand new invention. Well nothing really new, however after not even looking the site for several years, yesterday I decided to have a look at the site and see if it was still intact and running. To my surprise apart from a few missing images, the site more-or-less is all in one piece.

Having a read through some of the original posts sparked that irritated irrational and immature blokeman that sits just barely contained beneath my skin. The beast has awoken. Well not really not the beast, but reading back through my immature ramblings and observations has really opened up a craving for creative expression and an outlet for the varied and bizarre thoughts that cross my mind on a day to day basis, as well as an avenue to unleash my frustrations that the world provides.

Luckily in line with this, my life has taken several turns of late, and major changes mean that I am daily gaining fresh perspectives on this world and those who inhabit it. An overseas relocation means I am learning about a new culture, much the same as the culture shift and shock I was exposed to in moving to the country from the city.

Where did I move? Those who know me will know, and those that don’t will learn that when I start to eject my angst out onto the interwebs. The choice of places I relocated to has enough angst to keep me going for years, the culture I moved into certainly has it’s oddities and a certain beauty to its ebbs and flows.

We may have an additional contributor coming on board, lets just call him Rad Racer for now

Movember

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.

THE RULES
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.
