I'll miss you beards. Don't go disappearing on me.

Taking notes from @Jnon, I recruited some help so that I didn't have to stand there all day for the painting.

oh and gross.

Thanks for all the kind words today and on all my shots. My attendance for half of this was total junk. I am super glad to have picked up posting and moreso than that commenting back & forth and chatting with some of you. I am making a personal goal to travel and meet more of you throughout my life. Thanks a ton for all the inspiration. A better group of guys can't be found.

mOtke says:
He knew if he hid and waited, they could come. He deftly disguised himself, using a blend of science, ninja secrets, and magic, waiting. He waited for what seemed hours, and then waited a few more hours. He was so sick of waiting. He was. He wanted a cola. Or maybe something in the adult beverage arena. He needed a nap. But he waited. He had to. This outfit cost a fortune.

You're awesome. I look forward to hanging out again in the near future. Seriously.

Fledgling Brewer says:
I agree with @mimsattack. So glad someone did this and even more glad it was you. A friend sent me photos of that artist who does these types of shots and said I should do one for Whiskerino's beard sneak day. In my dreams! I wouldn't even know where to start but you knocked the effin' cover off the ball here. Hat tip to you sir.
Posted: Mar 1st, 2010 - 12:00am -
mackle says:
alright, so here it is March 1st and I've been drinking again and, technically, Whiskerino is over. However, I promised you some legit commenting and here it is.

You and @Poe did this. I know others were doing great things during Beard Contest 2003 but you guys showed that you could go nuts and be comfortable among friends, even when it was wide open on the Internet. I think it was the first time I have experienced the concept of living within a restricted pool of friends but wide out in the open.

Revolutionary to say the least.

Having chatted with you a few times at various throwdowns and such I can easily say you are among my top beardos. I want to come to Atlanta and just hang out for days. can we make that happen? Please? Can you come to Nashville and return the favor?

Thank you Chris. Much appreciated for EVERYTHING you've done for Whiskerino.
Posted: Mar 1st, 2010 - 12:17am -
Presto Beardo says:
yay, finally got to your page for commenting. I will definitely be in touch. Most of my family is in Georgia, and I am sure to head down to Atl before you know it. I will definitely keep you in mind when I do. You have just been a phenomenal beard to watch and I am real happy to say I got to meet you, even if it was just once.

Ace says:
also for the sake of putting it online for all to see for all time to see, i want to tell you that your photos in 2005 were what made me want to join whiskerino in the first place. they were amazingly hypnotic and you were definitely a dude that i wanted to meet, if just to see how much more amazing you could be in person. and you are right about the looking under 20 when clean shaven, and then all of a sudden looking like your ancient with a beard. you have magic powers in that there beard.

c dub says:
@jamesc filter schmilters. i boosted the exposure so that the whites would be real white. otherwise the thing that made it really start to blend was a bright white light that i shined on the wall killing shadows so that i would blend with the background. clame for a shot of me in my suit.

i have been looking at this photo a lot the past two days. that i haven't commented has probably been because i have these closing thoughts in my head, but keep getting distracted by how amazing this photo is. what an incredible way to finish this up.

i have known you since 2003, and it has been a joy to do so. you have forever been so kind, funny and ridiculously creative. your @poe collabs have always been an amazing sight to see, and your solo shots are some of the best that i have seen entire run of the bc2k3 - w'rino 09.

i look forward to our future get-togethers, where ever they may be. it will happen and it will be fun.

take care my friend.

We have a certain similarity of style, I think. Only you're a little older (don't even try to tell me how much older, because I won't believe you), and you've had more time to collect the coolness. I'm so pleased that we could hang out at the throwdown. If you come to Portland, please call me. We'll talk, have a drink, whatever. Okay?
