Sienna Miller’s Boyfriend Tom Sturridge Sports Increasingly Bushy Beard 

He’s always favoured a hirsute look – but Sienna Miller’s bearded boyfriend Tom Sturridge appears to be pushing the limits with his facial furniture. The 25-year-old London-born star has long been a fan of face fur, but his beard now appears to be bigger than ever. However, the growth is for a part. His spokeswoman told Mail Online: ‘Tom’s beard is for a part. He is shooting additional scenes the much anticipated epic On the Road.’ MORE

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

If You’re Arrested This Weekend, Do It Whitey Bulger’s Way

by Accidental Bear

The next time you get thrown in the slammer forget your grandmothers useless advice about wearing clean underwear. When busted for whatever illegal activity of your choice you hope to look as good as Whitey Bulger in this classic, actual mug shot from 1953. Fashionably un-aware  Bulger gets him a spread in Esquire Magazine  in 2011.

(via Esquire.com)

If the New York Times wanted to avoid burnishing the legend of Whitey Bulger, who was wanted for 19 counts of murder until the FBI arrested him on Wednesday, they picked the wrong front-page photograph: a mug shot from 1953 that may be the most stylish diptych in the history of criminality. Bulger is 23-years-old. He’s wearing a collared shirt and a wide-checked zip-up flannel coat. In profile, he looks just like James Dean. The crazy thing is the shot was taken when James Dean was still a nobody, working in TV. On the right, staring straight at the Boston Police cameraman, he’s inexplicably wearing an outsize fedora. As a whole, the mug shot is a strange amalgam of Jim Stark and Roger Sterling. He’s the rebel with a cause, the real tough from whom the Hollywood toughs were ripping off their style.

GAY INTERN HELPED SAVE THE LIFE OF GABRIELLE GIFFORDS

by Accidental Bear

Hernandez had only been interning with Giffords for 5 days before this tragic event. I think he will have an additional story to tell in his cover letter resume from now on.

Arizona Republic reports:
When the shots began that morning, he saw many people lying on the ground, including a young girl. Some were bleeding. Hernandez said he moved from person to person checking pulses. “First the neck, then the wrist,” he said. One man was already dead. Then he saw Giffords. She had fallen and was lying contorted on the sidewalk. She was bleeding. Using his hand, Hernandez applied pressure to the entry wound on her forehead. He pulled her into his lap, holding her upright against him so she wouldn’t choke on her own blood. Giffords was conscious, but quiet.
Ron Barber, Giffords’ district director, was next to her. Hernandez told a bystander how to apply pressure to one of Barber’s wounds. Barber told Hernandez, “Make sure you stay with Gabby. Make sure you help Gabby.”
Hernandez used his hand to apply pressure until someone from inside Safeway brought him clean smocks from the meat department. He used them to apply pressure on the entrance wound, unaware there was an exit wound. He never let go of her. He stayed with Giffords until paramedics arrived. They strapped her to a board and loaded her into an ambulance. Hernandez climbed in with her. On the ride to the hospital, he held her hand. She squeezed his back. When they arrived at the hospital, Hernandez was soaked in blood. His family brought him clean clothes because the FBI took his for evidence.
