You're the best... around.

Seriously, Brandon. I think you're one of the coolest dudes on Earth. Or at least on Whiskerino. But probably on Earth as well.

Have fun out there, and I'm sure I'll see you in a few months. Take care.

Sir Jellobeard says:
you really grew on me from the beginning, because your photos were real and raw. then you started to get iconic and godly (in the way that an alien would study the human race from afar to one day come to earth in a human costume, and blow peoples minds with his apparent genius), and you grew on me even more. how you can engage the mind of 500 beards is beyond me, but you know the whiskerino brain well, and you truly were this years master of ceremony. in the hip hop way. just slap your face on the logo, cause you own it.

congrats to you both. you remind me a lot of me and natalie. it gets better and better, trust me.

Thanks for the "pose" during this final chapter. It was sort of a right of passage to reproduce it, after which, I felt much more part of the event. Your photos are classics in these events and it was a pleasure to see them each day. Take care and I hope to see you in May.

You know how you get to know someone a little bit on the internet and think, 'they must be nice in person', but in reality they aren't?

So not the case with you. You're great, and I'm glad I was able to share the past four months of photos with you!

Take care!

Damn you! I keep writing pages of text to say what you just nailed in your caption.

So, now I will babble on here about how awesome you are. Ok, I won't, but, I just want to say, thanks again, for making me feel welcome in a new scary place. This has been a tremendous amount of fun, and you continue to set the standard of 'how to be'. I hope you and Laura get a good deal of rest before may!

yourfavorite says:
I'm glad we were able to chat briefly in Nashville Brandon. You have some truly unbelievable talent and humor. I've been following you since day one and I'm so glad. Thanks for making this place better and I look forward to seeing you again in May.

Also, I got on Chat Roulette for the first time the other day... I don't know how you're a fan of that mess! Its like 90% dudes and of those dudes 50% of them are masturbating and the other 50% are only there in hopes to see some boobs. But there are only dudes masturbating so I don't know where they got the idea there'd be boobs. Oh well. Maybe you know some secret hacks to get rid of all the lameos. If so, let me know!

so i dont know what it is about the throwdown but I NEVER GET TO TALK TO YOU. both times! i have no idea what your voice sounds like at all! it bothers me... but then you had that video from the news broadcast and my dreams were finally revealed! amazing! you sounded kinda like what i thought you did? haha...anyways, you are awesome at whiskerino as usual. never stop being that in real life too dude. im sure ill see you again in two years or something like that. later

Voltron says:
What to say... well, it has been great watching your posts the last 4 months. Many of them provided me with inspiration to think outside the box even more with each photo I took, thank you for that. Also, thanks for being a part of the King Beard Force. Your pose for the real photo at the Throwdown was a perfect replica of the one I gimped back in January. If you decide to get married or honeymoon in Vegas, we'd love to grab some tacos with you.

Terry Masters says:
your pictures were amazing and inspiring. but the chatroulette put you over the top. loved it. and then the reveal that you only learned about it the night before but were the only person in the store who knew what it was? Genius.

hope to see you in MM 2010.

I never did "the pip" out of principal. I felt that encouraging alcoholic drinks wasn't conducive to a family oriented website, and obviously you're a.... what's the word for someone who is awesomely clever and an all around nice guy? That's not what I was looking for, more of the opposite.

Anyway... stay cool man. You are awesome and nice.

I wish the best for you. Thanks for shaping and molding whiskerino, even if you only did it on accident. Or on purpose. You.

You guys are great fun. I'm glad I got to talk to you, but wish we'd had longer. I've told that to countless people, but it's true every time. I am serious when I say that I wish we were closer together geographically so we could hang out. I guess we'll always have May. See you in a couple of months!
