I spend my days doing stuff for Soul Survivor NZ and my church "Blueprint" in Wellington NZ. I am perplexed, amazed, in awe of, and spend a lot of time thinking about this revolutionary called Jesus and what it means to follow Him.

Slugvember

It’s the business end of movember, and it turns out that this molestache is just as bad as the last time I grew one, just thicker, with more substance.

I do want to have one little rant if I can. You will notice that I have gone for the classic “slug”. The slug is the purist form of movember. I have noticed a lot of people have chosen to go for the “handlebars”, or even the “beard that I will shave a couple of days near the end”. From my perspective, I wonder why you are bothering.

I am sorry is this sounds really harsh, but I am very passionate about his particular topic. Let me put it this way. Having the handlebars is like going for a nudie run with your boxers on. Whoopdeedo. You think you are participating, but there is no risk, no cost, and no fear of being caught looking like an absolute idiot (which by the way those with the slug have to deal with every day). The slug is where it is at… those with the slug are the ones on the edges of society, they are the ones shunned in public places, they are the lepers of our culture. I would contend that the word “mo” and “slug” are interchangeable, and therefore I would strongly argue that we could be calling it “slugvember”. Which raises serious questions about those who are choosing to have a more “culture friendly” version of the mo.

To those with the bars and with the beards I say… step up!!! Acknowledge your error, shave the offending part, and join the purist movember crew. You will be welcomed to the inner circle with the love and tenderness that only those with dirty slug mo’s can give. Wink wink

    That photos is suprisingly unoffensive in comparison to the real deal. I feel way more violated being in it's presence, especially in a bar *shudders*

    Hey bro... I don't think I ever let you know that I did actually take up your Movember Challenge, much to the disgust of my wife. And I'm feelin' ya on this.... I ain't got no beard or handle bars and it makes things very interesting. Especially when you're at a professional Branch Managers meeting of an international company (like General Electric) and you're explaining to all your peers and your boss and his boss as to why your branch didn't quite hit the expected results and how you will turn it around. Just to be told you look like Pablo Escobar....lol.... at least it took the attention off the results....hahaha

    Hey Sean. Huge respect bro. I feel your pain, having to relate to people you respect and want to impress is very difficult this month. And you have the added cost of having a wife who I would imagine is not hugely stoked on the whole deal. You da man bro

    Preach it brother! You're not really experiencing MOvember until you've been met with persecution.

    yeah! go the mo! as you can see in my latest mo photo i'm not really doing the slug or the traditional handlebars. i've gone for a cross between them both. at first (before my haircut) i looked like an 80's porn star...now (after my haircut) i look like a fireman :o{D

    my mo has been met with both adoration and disgust over the last 3 weeks. the praises have thus far outweighed the disses, and the mo has stayed.

    though i can safely say, there will be a few people who will be happy to see it go next Friday :o{)

    Preach it Sam, can't wait to see the final result. Sporting that mo makes me feel you actually fitted in at the realm the other night...*sigh* sad.

    Mate, I hear you, I took to the Franz Joseph on Saturday, then finally whittled it down to a slug on Monday. I know it's a bit late, but better late than never. And I have to chair a public meeting tonight! With a slug!!
