Here are the rules for my experiment:
- No trimming, shaving, clipping, or shortening is allowed until the set end date
- The set end date is August 23rd, my 21st birthday
- If I want to, I do not have to shave on the 23rd of August
- Every now and again I will post updates here, with pictures, a story or two about being bearded, and a video or song by one of my favorite bearded bands.
"The Bearded State - Episode 1: Sarsgaard."
So I was looking through Us Weekly magazine yesterday, and doing so without shame thank you very much. In this magazine, I stumbled across a picture of a very bearded Peter Sarsgaard. For those who don't know, Mr. Sarsgaard is what you could call a character actor, known for his roles in Jarhead and Garden State. Mr. Sarsgaard is usually pretty clean shaven, with maybe a little 5 o clock shadow now and again. But in this picture I saw, he had what one can describe as a "Megan's Law Beard," where the wearer immediately looks like an imminent threat to your children. Jaoquin Phoenix has been sporting the same kind of facial hair. When I saw this, I started to think, is that what mine will look like at that length, and how do I stop from looking like a total pedophile? I guess I will cross that bridge when I get to it.
