Bazan 'butes @Pip !!!!

He -holding a Jazzmaster guitar in one hand and a Detroit Atwater Michigan Lager in the other;

Whilst this beard just admires another.

It should be noted Dave was totally in to this picture and the idea of it. He asked, "is the original dude smiling or anything?" i said, "dude, do what you want."

and wow, was i impressed with the outcome.

...so when I try to tell people about Whiskerino, I just get blank stares and lots of confusion. How the hell did you explain this to him?

Katie says:
Also: he looks maaaaaad cuddly. I hope you hugged him.

@Katie i told him it was an online beard growing community/"competition". I asked if he'd heard about it, he said no (though @ACE got a pic with him in 2007) but he said it sounded like a really cool idea. then i told him about tributes and @Pip and asked him to do this shot right before i asked him for a high five.

Katie says:
Awesome! Yeah, I saw the high-five photograph yesterday. I was wondering why you didn't use it but now I see.

I've been listening to Pedro the Lion for years, and I've seen them live probably five times over the years. One of my favorite parts was how he always took questions from the audience.

Did he do that during the house concert? How was it? What kind of stuff did he play?

@motke and @andrew

he played 4 christmas songs, a tom petty cover, another cover i was unfamiliar with 4 songs from Curse Your Branches, and Big Trucks and Priests and Paramedics. He had his drummer, Casey Foubert playing electric guitar on the CYB songs.

and yes, he took many questions. there were maybe 30 people there crammed in this little townhouse in Corktown, Detroit. actually the questions were more like conversations. i blurted out, "this is more like VH1 storytellers at this point" to which he laughed, and capoed his guitar. he was a real peach, that guy. totally open and honest and friendly and funny. as always.

@Andrew - told him i wanted the high five, "just so i can have options."

and what did he say? "Well, it's GOOD to have options. *snicker"

You're 100% awesome. Thanks for this.

The Jazzmaster may be the best 'pet' used in The Pose yet. I will own one SOMEDAY.

Scrivener says:
I think what makes this even the more awesomer is that you got him to do the Pip pose.

Scrivener says:
When I got to meet Sam Beam I talked to him about Whiskerino and Moustache May and took a photo with him. Unfortunately, even though I still had my handlebars then, Moustache May had ended a couple of weeks before and I did not get to get any votes for posting that cameo shot.
