It has become clear to me that I am a nonparticipant, in all meaningful ways (except for the fact that I'm growing a beard and will continue to do so until the deadline of 02/28/10; you can see it in Richmond, Va, in my living room!). But this is a game of participation. And those who do it well do it genius. Keep it up great beards and great minds.

From here on out I'll grow a beard but won't photograph it. I'll watch.

My hat's off to Mackle for caring about art and community. Both take weird shapes. The weirder, the better.

As long as you've got the beard you might as well experience the rewards of participation. It's well worth the picture taking, even at the rate of a picture a day. You're not out yet, you should reconsider.

Good on ya for recognizing your status and not allowing yourself to just be washed out. Come out to the throwdown so we can see the final product!

I totally back up what @HiImTerry wrote -- that was perfectly stated.

I've been bad about commenting and looking at shots recently... but we have our good days and our bad days. It's not too late - so please stay since you won't be shaving. It gets tough towards the end. I almost shamed out for non participation (not posting) in '07 but was able to hold on.

This won't likely sway you, which is definitely a shame. The fact that you will continue to grow lessens that shame - but it's still shame, none the less. If you don't change your mind, good luck out there.

PS. NICE CD COLLECTION!!!!!

Wait - don't you know someone else on Whiskerino? Give them your account info and have them take candid (not too candid - it's a family friendly site) photos of you and upload them. It would be awesome!

Or just take one stinking photo a week! C'mon!

Oh, man. You only post once a week. Why? Just start posting more; it doesn't have to be elaborate.

So sad!
