Whiskerino 2009

Throwdown details coming together. Please attend!

I don't even know what to say. I'm horrible at goodbyes. I just know this past 4 months has been awesome. Meeting people online is usually fraught with difficulties. Perverts abound. Nigerians trying to steal your life savings. 32 year olds posing as 16 year olds. 16 year olds posing as 22 year olds. Bears stealing children. Its crazy out here.

But Whiskerino is different. I have never met so many cool people. And the weird thing is, something as simple as not shaving brought us together.

There are artists here. Photographers, graphic designers, parents, teachers, sculptors, musicians, stunt men, comedians, mechanics, accountants, parents and your mothers here.

In a tight knit community of people there are bound to be the outliers and even they weren't so bad. At the very least they provided hours of entertainment for the people who were amazed by their out right gall.

Thanks to @mackle for everything. Michael, you are a king among men. To take the workload of this thing onto your shoulders for no pay whatsoever other than the smiles of a couple hundred bearded gentlemen is one of the most admirable things I have ever witnessed.

I have made friends here. So many friends.

My name is Moses Harris Jr.

My email address is kidstatic ratz gmail dote com.

I am a whiskerooni.





Also, I am releasing an album digitally tomorrow. I created it for RPM (rpmchallenge.com). If you would like to hear it, please contact me and I will send you a link.

Yay. I love you all.

You tore it up on the stage and here on the site. You're officially the only rapper I've ever met! Also, thanks for performing the "Mega Man" song, @Jar introduced me to that song and that is how I found out about you.

Hey Moses - it was great to meet you in Nashville. You're a hell of a guy. I'm glad we got to talk and hang out, especially after all of the goofing around we did in chat. Thanks for rocking the mom jokes with me. Hope to see you around - I'll keep an eye out next time you happen to be in Atlanta. Until then, take care of yourself and good luck with your music.

Also: your car is slow, and your mom is a wonderful lover.

Hey Moses. I don't think we've ever really conversed, but I've always followed your pictures and your music. I think they're both great. If you're ever in the NYC area I'd love to hang out with you.

Cheers.

Moses you are one of the nicest funniest guys in person, absolutely one of the sharpest funniest guys online, and an amazing performer on top of it all. There's not much you can't do. It's been amazing having the pleasure of getting to know you, your music, and of course your sense of humor. Good luck with the move to LA and keep us updated on your goings-on!
Sincerely,
Noel

I will come play with you in los angeles some time when you get out there...and not like play a show.. I mean run a muck and do fun activities like eat tacos and knock on @vanbert's door and run away before he can answer and roll @terrymaster's house and possibly let all the air out of the tires on @masonbernard's bike... You know pretty much the stuff you and I do normally...but just in LA to people who we know that live there. YOu rock.

hale. says:
@kidstatic, you've brought a lot to whiskerino.

i bet at least 70% of these beards here had never heard of rap before.

and we needed someone tall to make the Whiskerino Participant Heights graph more accurately reflect greater society.

and your continuous quest to better your Taco Time is an inspiration to all hungry taco lovers out there.

and we needed more people flipping in photos.

and you provided a steady stream of 'your mom' jokes.

in all seriousness, you are a powerhouse of talent and comedy, and it has been a pleasure of mine to grow a beard alongside of you once again.

and since you'll be in LA, with luck, i'll see you soon.

take care of yourself and be well Moses.

also, keep me updated on record breaking Taco Times.

Beard Goggles says:
kindred souls we are. And If I don't see you in May... (I better!) I'm sure you haven't seen the last of me.

It's been great growing with you. I'm glad I got you getting limber again. You're a F-ing awesome dude. Thanks for being you. I am honored and pleased to have met you, drank with you, danced with you, and chilled.

Be easy, see you soon.

sariebell says:
Kid. Thanks for making my Whiskerino experience rad again this time. I got worried there about you when you got robbed and your luck was just shot. But, you persevered and came through for all of us. I'll always cherish my moment on stage with you during the Golden Girls theme (even though @tedford was in the can and missed the whole thing). Take care, stay golden, and EACHOSAMMICH!

You've got a superb command of this wonderful language called English, and you've got some crazy style as well. Wing tips with well-worn jeans? Hell yes.

I'm among the 70% @hale was talking about, and I thank you for introducing me to your passion.

I will see you in May.

JamesC says:
I hate rap music, it sounds like the guy is so mad. But I like what you do because I know you aren't mad. You're a cool dude, I'm glad we got to hang out. My little heart was going pitter-patter when I zinged your mom. It was a new zing and not fully tested. (Your momma's so fat, she walked by the TV and I missed the first season of LOST!).

Stay cool, man. I know you will.

Presto Beardo says:
Moses, you are the man! seriously, there's not many people that come up as often in my daily conversation. I am blown away by all the awesomeness that your life seems to be filled with. This definitely is not goodbye, and I promise we will battle it out on the dance floor one day.

Your photos and your music have been a highlight. One of the reasons I couldn't wait to do Whiskerino again this year. Thanks for sharing and caring.

I definitely want a copy of that album. I will drop you a line.

And for the record, I only try to sell bears to children. What the bears do on their own time is their business.

Ace says:
also i meant to tell you that if whiskerino was a reality all the time, then we would probably spend all of our time together talking about how everyone be actin a fool constantly. or at least i would and then you would and then it would go on forever.

and i throughly enjoyed our time on the dance floor together. you make for a mad t-rex. all right. later.

Like a cosmonaut of awesome, you float across the plains of forever, chasing the lost ones and herding them into a safe place of amazing importance. You are the pied piper of hip hop wizardry, telling robots to transform into conventional food heaters at will. You are a man who can climb a building like I can climb onto a stool. You are my friend. You are an amazing person.

I want you to succeed beyond your wildest dreams. Please stay in touch.

Best to you, and may at least 19 of your 43 dreams come true. I hope more.

You are, hands down, the coolest dude on this thing. I know there are a lot of COOL dudes but none of them top you. And that's saying a lot. Ask anyone - "Are you cooler than Kid Static?"

They will reply no.

Thanks for participating and I hope this isn't the end. Hopefully you hit up /talk (clame) and, at the very least, get drunk in my general vicinity during SXSW.

Thanks for playing two Throwdowns as well.. seriously epic.

Andrew says:
man, ain't no fading moses harris JUNIOR. I was thinking it would be really fun if we tried out/auditioned for the eventual inevitable remake/sequel:

Twins II

I'd play the Arnold role, of course.

It's bee awesome getting to chat shit up with you on here and hanging out for a little while in Nashville. I need to make it down to Chi before you move. Playing any shows soon? If not, let's just hang out.

If worse comes to worse goddamn man. LA it is. Stay in touch.
