Executive Contour

"Now being a barber is a lot like being a barman or a soda-jerk; there's not much to it once you've learned the basic moves. For the kids there's the Butch, or the Heinie, the Flat Top, the Ivy, the Crew, the Vanguard, the Junior Contour and, occasionally, the Executive Contour."
- Ed (Billy Bob Thornton), The Man Who Wasn't There,

A hodge podge of good design, music ephemera, offbeat Americana, ad critiques, misty water colored memories of places I've lived and the Minnesota Twins.

I also run a little country blog called Both Kinds of Music.

I gotta get down to Asheville. Fried Green Tomato Biscuit. Brisket Biscuit. ALL THE BISCUITS.
Normally I would call foodie bullshit on a gravy flight, but not today. Maybe not ever.
Somebody wipe the drool off my chest.

Classy shit.

Even comic characters used to dress snazzy. When’s the last time you saw Peter in a tie?

Yogi’s Sweet Six rocks out! (1960s)

ViewMaster was the best.

That’s not some CGI either. Those are handmade sets/sculpts. Seven frames per reel, three reels per set.
Hand. Made.

As genuine attempts to diversify the Marvel universe, both the Thor and Captain America announcements are significantly flawed, and are likely doomed to fail.

A deplorable article - laced with white guilt and #notallmen vibes.

My favorite painting and have had the good fortune of seeing it at moma, though it deserves a better place than next to the escalator.
