I'm Taking A Break From Coolness Is Timeless!

I had wanted to do this post to celebrate one of my favorite holidays, Halloween. I don't have a lot to celebrate right now. My computer died last night. I'm using my cousin's computer to write this message. I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm going to see if my laptop can be fixed inexpensively. If not, I'm going to have to get a new one before I start back in college the first of the year. I really didn't need this new expense. I'm not going to be able to be online much right now since I don't have my own computer. I'm going to have to take a break from the blogging world. This will be my last post for right now. I'm not going to be able to check out your blogs either for awhile. I'm so sorry about everything. I'll miss you guys so much. I'm hoping to be back as soon as I can. Take care. I wish you all the best.

I'm a huge Anglophile. I love so much about the United Kingdom. One of the best things from across the Atlantic is all the great classic British actors. These men have amazing talent, class & style. I wanted to share some photos with you. There are many others that I admire, but this is a start. Let me know what you think. Plus please let me know of any other Brits you would like me to cover here. Thanks.

André Benjamin Is One Of A Kind

André Benjamin, also known by his stage name of André 3000, is one of my favorite entertainers out there today. He's half of my one of my favorite hip hop acts, OutKast. Their hit singles include Ms. Jackson and Hey Ya!. He's also an actor, appearing in films like Be Cool and Four Brothers. André has his own clothing label called Benjamin Bixby. I'm always intrigued to see what André will be wearing. He's definitely one of my favorite style icons of today. He's one of a kind. I love his sense of style. He has so many wonderful looks. André is his own man. He doesn't try to conform to the standards of others. That's a good thing in my book. I hope you enjoy these photos of André in action. Let me know what you think.











P.S. Do you enjoy those Dos Equis commercials featuring The Most Interesting Man In The World? I know that I sure do. I did a post featuring a lot of those commercials last year on the blog. Check out that post here. There have been some more commercials since then. I wanted to post those now. I hope you enjoy them.

P.S. I had another post put up here, but the videos in it were acting up. I took it off and went with this one instead right now. I've got to check the videos in the other one. I hate it when videos disappear. I do hope you will enjoy this post here.

What Is It About A Man With a Mustache

Are you a fan of mustaches/moustaches (both are correct spellings)? I hear a lot of mixed reaction from both men and women on this. Some love them, while others don't. Growing up I always considered mustaches something very manly. When you were able to grow facial hair, it was something you did. It was a sign of being a man. Not every man in my family had facial hair, but many of them did. I would see a lot of men with either just a mustache or they would pair it with a beard or a goatee.

Then it was like one day a man was not suppose to have any hair on his face. His skin was to be as smooth as a baby's bottom. I knew guys who revolted against this and kept their facial hair. I've noticed over the last few years that facial hair is making a comeback. Maybe it's not everywhere, but it sure has around these parts. Plus there are many male Hollywood celebs who are ditching the razor and showing off what God gave them.

I'll admit that I haven't always had facial hair. I shaved for years. I do have it now. I'll change it up depending on my mood and the season.
I'm not saying every man should have it. It doesn't make you any less of a man not to have a mustache or something else. It hasn't always been culturally acceptable around the world throughout the ages. Some religions approve of it, while there are others that want you clean shaven. Some women love a man with facial hair, while there are other women who can't stand it. Plus depending on your job, it isn't always allowed. I'm pretty much a live and let live guy about it. I do know that personally I love it.

So what are your thoughts on facial hair on a man? Do you like it? If you're a man, do you have any sort of facial hair? How does your significant other react to it? If you're a woman, do you have an opinion on it or not? Let me know what you think. I wanted to share a few of my favorite men who have had a mustache.

I know it's been awhile since I've blogged. I've been tied up with getting things sorted out for going back to college. I did want to get a new post up here. Thursday & Friday I will go around to your blogs to leave some comments for those you've left on my last couple of posts. I wanted to let you guys know the good news. I took the math placement tests for college this morning. I scored high enough that I can go into Math 80, which is basically Introduction to Algebra. That's the last course right before College Algebra. It's actually the class I was hoping to get into. I'm no math whiz at all. I didn't do great in math years ago. I actually surprised myself that I did as well today as I did. I was nervous that I would end up in more of a remedial math class. I wanted to get into this particular course because it would be a great way to learn more about the subject material before getting into the harder course. That way maybe it might not be as much of a struggle now. Early registration for the next semester is on November 3rd. Classes will start in January. I had wanted to let you guys know. I'm so happy and thrilled. I know I've got a long road ahead of me, but today was a big weight off my chest. Thanks for all your support. I appreciate it.
