What Your Beard Says About You

by Accidental Bear

Sometimes my beard says, homeless hottie or I just ate a glazed doughnut. AB

Beards: Rugged? Trendy? Or Unreliable?

FOUR years ago, I grew the first full beard of my adult life on a whim. I was 41, and it was neither a fashion statement nor a midlife crisis, but it came at a fortuitous time: the style world just happened to be entering the Postmillennial He-Man Beard Epoch.

It was the dawn of an era, when dewy actors like Ryan Gosling and Jake Gyllenhaal started showing up on red carpets sporting cheek-fringe that seemed to boast, “My cover-boy looks can shine even through this tangle”; when it became obligatory to show up at Brooklyn warehouse parties with the shaggy jowls of an 1890s beaver trapper; when the Unabomber chin mane became unexpectedly chic on fashion runways.

ABOUT:

Hello friends! I’m a newborn TV show about two quirky brothers trying to quirk their way out of… I don’t know what I’m saying. It’s not my job to keep track of what this show is about, or who is in it or whether CAA has called today because not only have they haven’t but again it’s not my job to know any of this. I’M NOT A MARKETING DEPARTMENT! I’m just a TV show.

All Eyes On Brett Gleason | Musician

by Accidental Bear

There is no extinguishing this fireball named Brett Gleason. He’s knocked me down with his good looks and picked me back up with his powerful voice and lyrics. It’s not often you hear of an artist being compared to Trent Reznor AND Tori Amos , but I totally get it. Brett runs with a creative posse in NYC with obvious influence in his music. Brett’s debut video for, ‘I Am Not’ was #1 on the LOGOs ‘The Click List‘ which was a baby step in preparation for the marathon of success he’s is about to embark on.

Brett Gleason’s first solo effort, ‘The Dissonance’ is a unique fusion of alternative rock and electronica, combining the dark electronic presence of Trent Reznor with the earnest, piano-based pop of Ben Folds. From Brooklyn by way of Long Island, Brett discovered a love for music at young age after an accident left him with a severe speech impediment, causing him to spend his free time alone with music and books. Later, he would attend the New School University in New York where he studied writing and music. In 2010, Gleason made his debut with the EP ”The Dissonance’, which he performed and recorded himself, debuting a video for the first single, ‘I Am Not’ at #1 on MTV Logo’s, ‘The Click List‘.’

[BLOG] Make Art and Earn a Badge at 3rd Ward

by Accidental Bear

Now I cannot even pretend that I am objective on how great 3rd Ward’s Membership Community is.

I became an unlimited member about 6 months ago to help round out my web skills and my life has never been the same.

Working for a Tibetan Non-Profit at the time the evening classes, practical subjects offered and the short distance from the L train were the initial draw.

A lot of the skill set I used at the time were things I learned on my own or on the fly between fund raising campaigns and computer work.

All I was expecting was take a class or two and continue the selfless grind that is working for a non-profit. I called to register for a class and it was suggested I take a tour of the space before I made a commitment and see the benefits of becoming a member. I was informed that if I did take a tour I would receive a $50 credit towards my first class.
