Beard of the Week: November 17

17 Nov

I’ve been slacking lately, but goshdarnit I’ve been so tired and things have been so hectic! I, however, will not overlook my beard of the week responsibilities. A more blasphemous thought has never crossed my mind!

As I was sitting in Market Market cafe tonight with my friend Geena, I realized and said, “Shit, it’s Beard of the Week night. I need a beard!”

After first suggesting her father, she gave me this great idea.

Joaquin Phoenix! I have a hard enough time spelling/typing his name correctly as it is, but how is it that this good looking piece of man

suddenly one day announced his retirement from the acting profession to grow a grizzly beard and start a rap career? Well, in the end we all found out it was a hoax for some Casey Affleck film, but even still, he grew some pretty mean face fur.

I know it’s a bit…rugged…but here at Beard of the Week we try to honor all beards. This beard as it turns out attracted a lot of attention, alongside his peculiar, not to mention, hilarious behavior.

So, good job Joaquin. You proved you can grow some mean facial hair, that you’re willing to dedicate your life to a role, and that you’re actually still sane.

I say grow the beard back, but give it a trim every now and then, eh?

Here’s the clip from Letterman that started all the nonsense:
