Whiskerino 2009

Throwdown details coming together. Please attend!

I doubt there's any other photo I could use as my last Whiskerino photo than this one. @Chinfropro, thanks for the awesome photobooth setup.

I'm not entirely sure how to sum up the past couple years of all of this, but I'll say obviously: much thanks to @Mackle. You've managed to not only make a website entirely devoted to strangers growing beards not be creepy, but actually an incredibly meaningful part of a lot of people's lives. When I started this, I was a goof in college, right off freshman year. I'm now working in NYC and married. 6 years went by pretty quickly.

I hope something is bound to come up in the next few years to reunite this weird group of interweb guys, but if not: it's been great getting to know as many of you as possible, and I hope to stay in touch.

King Faved!

You're the best Davis! I feel like I'm signing a yearbook all day today but alot of those sentiments are exactly true. I hope to see you again someday (moustached) and I WILL make my way up to New York.. at which time we will have a fantastic time drinking beers and talking nerd talk.

See you on the IM's / Tumblr / etc.

you will always remain one of my favorite's b/c i'm a goof too... also I remember way back in the day when i did my first moustache may...I searched through cal dykes (the commander) friends of thefacebook to see if any of my moustache may buddies were there and you were the only one. It's crazy to think how many of of these ass holes are on there now... But we can rest assured that we were on thefacebook before it was cool...or whatever that means...b/c now it kinda fucking sucsk b/c its so goddamn big and ubiquitous. I can't find anyone on there when i'm looking for them....oh well. See you in the future...and i'll be giving you a call if i've ever in NYC...which i should do b/c i have people i need to visit there...i haven't been back since i left after living there in the summer of 04

You've always been one of my favorite beards. If I'm ever in your neck of the woods (I mean woods figuratively, of course), I'll try to find you. And make you hang out with me. For as long as you like.

Farewell, sunshine. Until we meet again. Probably in May.

JamesC says:
I am so glad we got to meet. You were the reason I did all this and my life is complete that we got to shake hands and hang out for a bit.

When you walked by me at the last night's party and told me that you thought I was the sexiest man alive, I really wanted to punch you, because hey, everyone but you knew it.

You are my brother now, and have always been adopted. We'll hang out again, that's a promise.

mOtke says:
He smiled the largest smile that history had ever seen. That smile, of course, was inspired by the kittens bursting from the center of the earth in a large geyser of fur and cuteness. The kittens were hurled several hundred feet into the air then landed safely on a pillow made of cotton and more kittens. It was a joy of all joys.

In the distance, @mattyc was sneezing, wondering why he was here and if @davis would mind grabbing a taco with him.

The day was complete.

Love this shot. An innocent toddler trapped in a man's body. Your photos were awesome. Especially the ones with v-necks.

I was hoping to bump into you at the Throwdown, but there was a sea of beards in the way. I've followed your tumblr though.

Thanks for growing a beard with me. See you around.
