Do you shave? If so, what do you use? Wet or dry? Two blades, three blades, five?? Electric or manual?

I’ve been a wet shaver for years now, two blades and a little shaving oil is plenty for me to whisk away those annoying (for the wife) bristles. I keep missing the bit in the middle of my chin though, odd that.

Back in the day I had an electric foil razor and it was pretty handy for a quick once over, just enough to make you presentable for another day at the grindstone. I’m not entirely sure why I stopped using it, but I’m guessing it would be around the time I grew my goatee (or soul patch as some people inaccurately call it).

Anyway, I have a quick question for those that use an electric razor. I’m looking for a comparison between a Philishave (three rotating heads) razor and a foil razor. Good? Bad? Any specific things to be wary of?

FYI – I rarely cut myself wet shaving, and don’t suffer from overly sensitive skin or razor rash, but sometimes a wet shave is just a little too demanding of my time in the morning. I’m guessing that, long-term, it’ll save me a little money as well, those razor blades are chuffing expensive!

So it’s over to you dear reader. You have a chance to influence my Christmas present, so be nice!

A friend had some bad news last week. He runs his own joinery business and took on an apprentice last year, a young lad of 17.

On Wednesday night the apprentice hanged himself.

Needless to say it has provoked a lot of thought about life, values and the like, and I’ve not been able to find much else to think about. Certainly nothing I’d post here, which in itself is sad as I would’ve in the past.

FYI: The previous post was in an effort to keeps things ‘normal’ but hasn’t worked.

The Straight Man’s Guide to Enjoying Gay Sex (via Plasticbag)

“This article does not aim to change the collective consciousness of Western culture; rather, its goal is to examine and exploit some loopholes in the “laws” of masculinity – loopholes which allow the straight man to explore the extended spectrum of sexuality while maintaining his heterosexuality unbesmirched.”

Worth a read if only for the punchline three paragraphs in.
