You need the facial hair to compete... its a fact.

Sideburns improve your hearing.... how I don't know but when my sideburns are gone it just doesn't sound the same  Laughing

My pony-tail makes me exempt from the facial hair requirements.

My beard changes with the weather due to the fact that, through some genetic freakery, it grows 1" plus per week. There is pretty much always something. Hair length? I've never had a haircut with scissors, EVER. Including my time with Uncle Sam's Misguided Children when it was high and tight with 1/4" on top at best, my hair has always been either just shaved, or growing. Even as a young kid, I had it buzzed in the summer, and then it grew from September to June. Last buzzer to touch my skull was in August of 2000 when I wound up with Marley sized dreads after a summer off that I hiked the entire Appalachian Trail solo. My hair's about to my ass at this point, at close to 41 it is graying though. Smile

My Father today asked if I was growing a beard. I have had one for two years and told him so. He said it was neither here nor there.

Evderyone knows that pro sound engineers (As Bennett says, the good ones) have facial hair. A little bit of grey means that you must be really good.


Well, I feel better now...

I know somebody around here's gonna ask. I'm in the black shirt.

And I was that grey when I was 30. Just like my Dad.

I saw my first gray hairs when I was 21YO but I blamed that on being in the army at the time..

Gawd I hope so.
Otherwise I need to use the weed whacker every two days.
...now if I could get it to grow on top.

I think Kim, and all the other ladies on this forum can choose option 4

( aside from that we don't want to know)

Well, other than the fact that I composed that reply whilst waiting for that table to load, thanks to my lovely prehistoric-speed internet connection courtesy of SoVerNet (in Vermont, home of hand-cranked phones), I suspect that the reply "I'm Just A Girl" may not be the most optimal statement for women in a male-skewed profession.  Shocked

But thanks.

I can't get any hair to grow to connect a mustache and a goatee.
It looks dumb unconnected so I only do one or the other.
(and yes that's a ponytail back there)
