What it’s like with a beard?

Blogger Eric Bandholz writes about his life with the evolution of side burns into a big bushy beard.

Eric on couch with beard

So recently I’ve made a conscious decision to grow out the largest beard I have attempted. I have worn one style of facial hair or another since college. Started off with sideburns, then a chin beard, chin strap, mustache, full beard and pretty much any other conceivable style out there. The only consistent thing between those beards is that none of them were ever big and long. MORE

The Sunnah Beard: the latest trend amongst non-Muslims in Philadelphia USA

There’s not a woman in Philly who would rock a burka just to make a fashion statement. But when it comes to Muslim-inspired menswear, well, that’s another story. Regardless of their religious affiliations, certain Philadelphia men, mainly African-Americans, have adopted the style of wearing long, old-world-style beards, sometimes pairing them with calf-length trousers and long shirts – all looks inspired by traditional Muslim attire. For many, this convergence of hip-hop with Islamic style is purely a fashion statement and has nothing to do with whether a guy worships in a church or mosque. Some jokingly refer to non-Muslims who adopt this mode of dress as “asalama-fakems,” a play off the traditional Arabic greeting of “as-salaam alaikum,” meaning “peace be upon you.” MORE

GrizzlyYELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — Rangers investigated Saturday whether a Michigan man was the victim of a grizzly attack in Yellowstone National Park or if the bear had come upon the hiker’s body after he died. The man was found Friday morning by two hikers on the Mary Mountain Trail, which runs northeast of the park’s iconic Old Faithful geyser. Investigators found grizzly bear tracks and scat near the man, but were not immediately sure whether the grizzly caused the man’s death or disturbed his body after he died. “Bears are opportunistic when it comes to food sources,” Yellowstone spokesman Al Nash said.

Celebrity Accidental Bear Paul Rudd Has a Shiny Penis

by Accidental Bear

We are weak to Paul Rudd‘s charisma and naturally manly vibe. So, when we saw an interview of him talking about his man part, his tool, his long john silver we had to re-post. Well Paul, if your nob is as shiny as you say, you will need that thing regularly polished (hand raised in the air). Mike Enders

We knew Paul Rudd was hot, but is his penis shiny? That’s what he and costar Adam Scott claim in an interview with Black Book magazine.

The two actors discuss working together on their new comedy My Idiot Brother and Rudd’s nude scene. “Your penis shines pretty bright,” Scott joked during the interview.  Rudd replied, “It’s a little like looking at the sun, it’s true. I think the only way you can really look at my penis is if you’re wearing a welding mask.”

News: Lower Income LGBT, Cyndi Lauper, Pro-Bullying Campaign, Deputy’s groin grab…

Cyndi Lauper Opens Housing for LGBT Youth

Cyndi Lauper speaks to a crowd at the True Colors tour on May 31, 2008 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Next month, Cyndi Lauper‘s 1986 hit “True Colors” takes on new meaning when the True Colors Residencefor homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (L.G.B.T.) youth opens in Harlem on September 1.

In New York City, a very disproportionate number (up to 40 percent), of homeless youth identify as L.G.B.T. Even more disturbing are reports that these young people often face discrimination and at times physical assault in some of the very places they have to for help. This is shocking and inexcusable!— Cyndi Lauper

How Global Warming Is Making Hurricane Irene Worse

Hurricane Irene is bearing down on the Outer Banks of North Carolina as a Category Two storm, and is expected to track a path of destruction up the densely populated Atlantic coast, with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg ordering the first-ever mandatory evacuation of low-lying areas of the city. As the U.S. government report “Global Climate Change Impacts in the US” summarized in 2009, warming of the oceans is causing Atlantic hurricanes to become more intense and dangerous.

Ron Paul On Abortion: A Libertarian, As Long As You Don’t Think Women Count As People

Two sources of pushback on my post on Ron Paul’s anti-freedom view of abortion rights. Ann Althouse chooses for some reason to dispute that Ron “respecting the God-given right to life—for those born and unborn” Paul wants to ban abortion. Since she’s apparently incapable of reading between the lines of such proposals as “Defining life as beginning at conception by passing a Sanctity of Life Act’” she might be interesting in some other quotations from Congressman Paul such as

Accidental Bear Teams up with Celebrity Personal Trainer Johnny Pearman for a Series of Fitness Videos

by Accidental Bear

The night before my meeting with personal trainer Johnny Pearman was a restless night of sleep. Fitness for most can be that pink elephant in the room that you just do not want to acknowledge. You know you should pet it more and take better care of it, but chose to ignore it. So, meeting Johnny was like meeting this pink elephant, face to face. The plan of attack was to tackle fitness and workout myths and to get Johnny to reveal some secrets of the trade.

Johnny exudes a bright light and even before our initial meet-and-greet handshake, I was a fan. Once I got past his movie star good looks and his make-you-weak-in-the-knees Kentucky charm I found a well seasoned athlete that knows fitness and well-being inside and out. His training techniques are gentle and effective and he will deflect any negative thoughts or feeling you may be having regarding your own personal faults, with helpful tips in terms that are easy to understand and relate to.

Japanese author Haruki Murakami’s celebrated novel about Tokyo college life in the 1960s was banned by the Monroe Township Schools in Williamstown after a public outcry over its supposed inappropriateness. “Some of the language is inappropriate,” said Chuck Earling, superintendent of Monroe Township Schools. “We were not trying to create controversy. We were just trying to get students to read.”

An Intimate History of Gay Men in the Military

As “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” comes to an end, we sent Chris Heath to interview dozens of gay servicemen from the past and present to find out what life was really like as America’s military struggled with its last great identity crisis. On a day to come very soon—September 20, 2011—a serviceman’s sexuality will no longer be grounds for dismissal from the U.S. Armed forces. These are the voices explaining what it has been like to be a gay man1 in the American military over the previous seventy or so years, from World War II veterans in their late eighties to young servicemen on active duty.
