Paying Tribute to My WhiskerMaker™

My good buddy Jeff (aka @runningantelope) is the blazing being of light who encouraged me to murder my sweet goatee on 11/1/09 and embark on this beautifully crazy journey known as Whiskerino.

I was kind of insecure about my Irish Viking Puffball Poodlebeard and how it would look in comparison to the uber-beards I had seen in the archives (Jeff's especially.) I had a good camera, but didn't really know shite about photography. Jeff told me "don't worry man, I think you'll fit right in. You've got the perfect personality for Whiskerino and it's all about community."

So I'm taking this day to give Jeff Wilkerson my eternal thanks and appreciation for bringing me aboard this life changing experience. I have discovered a great new creative outlet through photography and most importantly I have felt welcomed and excepted by a lot of you cool dudes (whom I hope to get to know better throughout the years.)

I can't wait to see you guys next weekend at The Throwdown! PEACE OUT!

Stephen Parrish Phillips

I’m hitting up all of the members of Team #Nashville to try and pimp a ride for @revgoomba and @johnatcollege down to Lynchburg to tour the Jack Daniel’s distillery. They can’t drive and there are no tours going there from Nashville in February. It’s only an hour drive and it’s a great tour. I’d do it, but I’m in Atlanta and won’t be getting to Nashville until Friday. Help a couple of Whiskerino legends out?
