Movember: Day 12

I know it’s been more than a few days since I have put an update in, but it’s been really busy planning for the move and everything. I always try to not accumulate stuff, but I’ve found that it’s super hard to actually have nothing, lol… Believe me, I’ve tried. I have no furniture save my bed, dresser and nightstand (which are staying), so now i’m just trying to make everything fit into some duffel bags and then just ship them cross country (i’m flying)…. much cheaper.

But enough about me, let’s talk about Movember.  Our team is plugging along, everyone diligently seeking people to join the cause, or support us financially (every little bit helps).  Joey is our money leader at this point. This is the second year in a row that he’s been the front runner for us at this point in the Movember season, so kudos to him.

As always you can check out our team, see our progress, and of course donate here:

Movember: Day 3

My facial hair is not growing fast enough. I was hoping that I could have gone and seen @hotbarber at Top Of The Line Barbershop to start grooming my mustache. Such is not the case.  At this rate, I think I’m going to have to go see him Saturday.  Saturday is also his grand opening, with DJ Flaco Flash spinning… That’s right, a DJ at a BARBERSHOP! Ramon really does know how to do it up right. 4191 Pearl Road in Cleveland.  I’ll be there… eating, and prob sneaking in a flask, lol.

I talked to some people last night that I think are going to jump on the Movember bandwagon (yesss!). People are very enthusiastic about the fact that I shaved and look like an 18 year old boy. All good though… Its all for the MO!  I’ll keep posting these updates, but you have to spread the word. Below is the link to our team. Pass it on to a friend, click to donate, or to sign up and fight with us!

Movember: Day 2

 

Pretty lazy day today, lol… I woke up on the west side after a bender at Liquid/Suite Sixx and figured I had to holler at El Jalapeno. Shit was phenomenal. Enchiladas Supremas…. #29. Make sure you check it out if you’re ever around 117th and Detroit, lol. Jesse threw me a ticket to the Cavs game tnite against the Hawks. Cavs played terrible, but you’ll have that with a young team. They will be a 6 or a 7 seed in the playoffs this year. Mark my words.

Today was an interesting day as far as team dynamics go. We actually had a girl sign up with us, so more power to her. So please welcome Kelly Repenning as our first Mo Sista on team Cleveland’s Mo Bros. Now we have to put separate showers and bathrooms in the clubhouse, lol.

Looking forward to what’s in store for us on this team. Make sure to keep us in your thoughts and if you can, contribute to the cause (link below). Funny, I know guys that can pretty much grow a full beard in a day. It’s like 24 hours after my haircut/shave and i’ve got a 5 o’clock shadow, lol… Guess it could be worse hahaha

Movember: Day 1

1 11 2010

So the day has finally arrived… I need to be clean shaven by the end of the day and i’m not too sure how I feel about that.  It’s been MONTHS since I saw my bare chin, so i’m sure i’m going to be spilling stuff all over it in the upcoming days to come. This go ’round, I’m more interested in spotlighting companies that can help out with the Movember effort, so I called on my good friend, Ramon Claudio who is the owner of his newest business venture, Top Of The Line Barbershop.  Ramon is an expert barber, and agreed to lend his services to help w/ the campaign. Now why he wouldn’t participate remains to be seen, but supporters might as well be participants. Whether it’s with their time, their money, or their services, every little bit helps. Top Of The Line just opened today (how about that, two new beginnings on the same day!), and it is located at 4191 Pearl Rd in Cleveland (for those of you who don’t know, W. 25th turns into pearl. My first time too), so for you downtowners, he’s not far. Pics to come….

Here’s what we started off with.  I made sure to not go to get cut by Ramon, so we would have a nice before and after picture.  Here’s the messy before pic:

Here’s a shot midway through:

Then a few snips here and a few snips there and…… VOILA!  Moms would be so proud

 

Movember: After/Front

Movember: After/Side

How sick is that fade? I’m serious… you have to go see Ramon. He’s a big social media guy, so check him out at @Hotbarber. He’s about to drop a foursquare deal as well… Stay tuned!

Ramon and I are trying to come up with a good mustache for me to rock this year… He said he’s gonna look into it, so I guess i’m off the hook, lol… he’s the barber, i’m just the subject, hahaha!

I’m gonna be posting a new picture around noon everyday and giving you vital stats on our team. Please consider donating to our Movember cause. We’re Cleveland’s Mo Bros and we’re trying to end prostate cancer… Won’t you help us? If you would like to donate:

You can donate here (it’s tax deductible), and also join our team. Our newest celebrity recruit is DJ Evil One. He’s from Portland, Oregon (where beards come as thick as the trees), so I thought this might be a hard thing for him to do, but he was all about it. So not only is he our most famous member, but he’s also our farthest… repping Los Angeles.
