I’m making a habit of introducing you to satires aren’t I? HAHAHA, this beauty is about beards, and namely how shaving one off can be quite dangerous! The protagonists of this song and story is a band, appropriately, called “The Beards”, and it discusses the potential dangers of what happens if you allow others to influence your shaving decisions.
All of these guys are sporting monster beards by the way, and look quite grungy. So lets talk about that for a second. If you want to grow a beard out properly, you still have to maintain it right. If you let it loose, you will end up looking like a hobo Jesus and nobody will respect you for that. On the other hand, if you use a beard trimmer, you can create majestic works of art.
Here is what I do. The first thing I do, is completely shave off my entire beard. Yes, that is right. I do this to start fresh, because I like for my beard to grow evenly. I do this by using a traditional blade and hot soap, and try and get the smoothest shave possible.
Afterwards, I monitor the length of my beard and apply something called “beard oil”. If you aren’t familiar with that, it helps your beard grow out and stay healthy, which is very important if you want your hair to not look like beaten dust bunnies. Finally, once it gets to a particular length, I will use a set of shears and beard trimmers to angle my beard in an appropriate manner. This doesn’t always work out the way I want to, and if you are trying to grow a beard for the first time, you might run into some issues as well. However, its an epic look.
The song itself is a satirical work of art. There are guitars, a harmonica, and other wind instruments going to town while the vocalist is singing away, creating a perfect “drunk mans” song for those interested in singing in bars or lounges. I like the rhythm of the song and think that it goes along great for the audience as they can sing along.
