You are not old; old is kind of in your mind. Further more, it's a miracle you're not old because you have kids and kids usually make people old. That means you're really special if you can have an awesome family AND stay young!

Are you really dying your beard? That's a little more than awesome.

Brian says:
Great photo, and blog entry. I also vote to just go gray.
Posted: Dec 8th, 2009 - 6:47am -
Brian says:
Also ... if you decline to embrace the gray ... I think a whiskerino pic with you mid dye is in order. That would be entertaining.
Posted: Dec 8th, 2009 - 6:48am -
Le Duncan says:
@brian, I think he is mid-dye in this one. I think.

You're a wizened elder. There's something to be said about that. And hey, at least that bottle you're holding isn't Viagra.

Ozzy...lets face it...you kinda looked like a tool back then...You definitely got cooler with age.

your beard doesn't show your age... @mattyc is right, you do look like a tool in that photo

There are definitely things that suck about getting older. You have the right attitude, though. Fix what you can...the rest of the stuff, don't sweat it. Nice photo.

KO says:
I don't know what to say to this. I am 33 and have gray hair, and couldn't care less. Maybe that will change in 10 yrs, but I doubt it. I say let it go natural man, but whatever makes you comfortable. Still wish I could get ink around here like that though.

Andrew says:
I'm 27 and have to take advil after workouts. not quite where you're at but I hear you.

also, petroleum jelly along your hairline(s) will stop the dye from getting on your skin. (a little tip from my barber/stylist)

i see fantastic inkjob.

ninja wife says grey is sexy.

Getting ready to dye mine too.

Beardwinner says:
I need to dye mine as well, but only cause my head hari is black and my face hair is red. Makes for a disconcerting appearance.

ThatGuy says:
Seriously? What the hell are you doing? Have you seen what those guys that dye their hair end up looking like? You're going to end up looking like those old Gi Joe dolls. Stop it Ozzy! Just stop it right now! I'm coming to the bash and I don't want to have a beer with this guy...

Clame for your future...if you don't turn back now.

iambillpower says:
Ha ha. I'm 41, dude. Just shave your head. It works for me. Nobody ever can tell my age. They always guess a lot younger.

Ozzy Nelson says:
@thatguy I had several of those old GI Joes, I know what they look like.
Thanks for your heartfelt concern.

Hahahaha. You're welcome of course. Looking forward to having a beer with your handsome dark haired self in February.

i thought you were a strong supporter of "natural" rather then "enhance"

MVC to @Gavin

i'm coming up on 40 and i'm slow and bigger than i was at 20 but i wouldn't trade it for the world.
Posted: Dec 8th, 2009 - 12:50pm -
Ozzy Nelson says:
@gavin and @ko. I don't care whether they are enhanced or natural. I like both varieties.

You look exactly like Paul Reiser circa Mad About You in that photo. Mind blowing.

in other news, please refrain from overly comment bombing.. just a friendly wag of the finger on that one.

Women's hair dye, eh?

I shall not judge you, for your beard is epic.

Paragone says:
I'm pretty sure your tattoo work puts you automatically in a different category then other 41 year olds. Young at heart for sure.

yes it's time to get the other side done.

Being old does suck. I've been dying my hair for years (for lots of reasons, but def grey is one of them). I will probably most likely absolutely never have grey hair. I will be a jet black haired old cat lady with lots of bracelets. Oh yeah... I kinda am already. Embrace the dye and do what makes you feel good about you!

SoulGlo1976 says:
Dude, you're not that old! You also got kick ass tattoos and a level of beard density I'll never attain! Life is beautiful man!

hankbobs says:
Crap! I just wrote a whole message about the old days when we knew you as Paul Reiser on Mad About You... now I see @mackle beat me to it. Damnit. I was going to ask if I could walk your dog.
Posted: Dec 8th, 2009 - 7:34pm -
hankbobs says:
and dying your hair and moustache isn't that bad. I just wonder, with all those tats, why aren't you dying it a more interesting color? Like, purple?

Boaz says:
You're even sexier now, funk the haters!

Ooo, don't forget the brows ;) JK

mike says:
I'm almost thirty, no gray. My grandfather on my mother's side (god rest his soul) had a full head of gray-less hair even after the chemo. Don't know if he could grow a beard but he had some mean stubble (ticklefight!). Long story short, I'll probably die before my hair goes gray, much to my chagrin. I want some Clooney like action.
