On Display In Portland: The Art Of Beautiful Beards

by Accidental Bear

Times they are changing. In the past to hunt down a grouping of beards you would have to stalk the local Home Depot, truck stops ( get out of the bathroom men), hunting clubs, biker clubs ( HOT) or hippy gatherings ( FYI, Farmers Markets are great for beard watch). Nowadays getting the same street credit as Michelangelo or Picasso, lovely unusual beards are being put on pedestals in museum and fashioned into a wonderful art collection.

A wise woman — I think it was the Millionaire Matchmaker (or maybe it was my sister) — once said that men hide their insecurities behind facial hair. Well, that’s just one theory. Other men see beards as an outlet for creativity. Every few years, such men from around the world congregate and compete at theWorld Beard and Mustache Contest.

In 2009, photographer Dave Mead traveled to the competition being held in Anchorage, Alaska. What resulted is a portrait series that has since traveled the globe and is now at Portland’s Land Gallery through February. See more beards, if you’re so inclined, on his site.

Pandemic Breaking out at Gyms. Mens Arm Hair Disappearing

by Accidental Bear

Noooo, ( shrieking)! Long hair , short hair, lopsided Flock of Seagull do’s, feathered and permed mens hair go through these massive trends like our female counter parts. I welcome the current fad that has explosion beards all over the face of prepsters, jocks ( my fav), musicians, geeks , on and on. One day this will all pass and Bears will get “their” beard back. I know men shave their legs when on swim teams to glide faster in the water, ok I get that although do not like it, for hairy legs is what make the world go around( well, at least my world). Ok, FOCUS FOCUS, What I am moaning about now is


Stop it right now. It creeps me out, makes my skin crawl. Today while noticing ( wink wink) a fine young man doing lat pull downs , his face had a nice 10 day covering of prickly stubble and  he had a set of peachy fuzz covered legs. As my eyes performed foerplay on him from top to bottom,  I noticed his under arms were shaven. Not acceptable. This PANDEMIC has spread at a dangerous rate. Fuzzy wuzzies, with shaved under arms = Tranny ( FYI, I love Trannies). Men please stop this. There is help for you . Talk with a therapist. Leave your under arm hair alone OR go all the way and make an appointment for your sex reassignment surgery. I am going to start a support group called BIONHIN ( Believe it or not hair is natural). Thank you for hearing me out with todays gripe. Now , mover along.
