If you would like a formal critique on one of your pieces, please note :note: me. i would prefer it be poetry, as that would be most along the lines of something i am knowledgeable enough in to thoroughly critique, but i am open to at least attempting any and all styles of art.

Hey all, I'm growing a Movember mustache! *le'gasp*

I've done it before, but - like all great things, if it's worth doing once, it's worth doing again.

So yes, you can follow my folloquial progress at where people who are my friends and take photos (neither being a qualifier in and of itself) take photos of a friend of theirs (I hope it's me!) so that I can show proof to some skeptics that I might be real... maybe. There's even a very recent photo where I look 12 posted now! along with some not as recent of photos displaying the results of last Movember.

Heavy stuff: in case you aren't aware, I am and have been mo-ing to help raise money and awareness for men's health. That's right mens, we're letting the ladies dominate us in health-ness, and as the ultra-competitive beings imagining we have something to prove for some reason that we are, let's pretend we aren't emotional about women being consistently better than us and calmly do something about it!

Yes, that's right! Stand up - dust off that strange Dorito spice? residue dust - exclaim to the world "I am man!" - get a little dizzy - sit back down! Cool, we're making progress - or, at least, I know that felt good for me.

Gender is one of the most reliable predictors of life expectancy and health in the world, with men living an average of 6-ish years less than women. A lot of this stems from things I very often fall prey to, which is a cultural and systemic institution where we have been taught that we need to prove our manliness by not seeing doctors or psychologists when things are tough or don't feel right.

This is not just an issue for mens, but also for the awesome ladies out there who put up with us in their day-to-day lives where they are living healthier and longer because they are the superior beings and sometimes are forced by us to deal with their man-friends being not fun - whether because we are getting sick from very preventable illnesses, or suffering from psychological tolls such as depression all because we don't really know how / want to acknowledge, communicate, or accept that we need help with things sometimes. You can find out more information about the Movember Foundation: here.

Everybody needs help sometimes. That's why Kris Kringle taught the Winter Warlock (Finn & The Ice King respectively for the young'uns) how to put one foot in front of the other and walk across that floor!

So yeah, all that to say that, for those interested, I'll be posting pictures of me and mine mustache struggles in the big-little capital of the world! and you can donate at my page to help me raise money for the health of man - any amount helps and is much appreciate by me, a mans, on behalf of mens everywhere.

If I get enough hours stamped onto my time sheet, I hear I get to be considered a master and learn others advanced follicle training techniques - so thank you so much for supporting my dreams.

Cheers and Seasons Greetings - already got my Halloween costume picked out, so I'll be sure to get that on the MoPage as well when it comes.

Hey All!

I'm a happy-go-lucky kid who spends all of his money on music - the darkest & most esoteric he can find, with occasional piercing rays of sunshine - who constantly feels at ends with his interests and the societies they place him in, & who doesn't really feel like he truly belongs anywhere, but is super happy to be right here.

“Holy Sons is about facing your personal reality. You can’t wear it, it’s not cool, so it’s not a commodity in this culture. I don’t think it’s built to succeed in any way."

Sometimes the 80's were the coolest, other times, they were the 80's. This is the coolest:

Oh no, what did I do this time?

Does this have something to do with this pewter chalice full of unmeltable ice I woke up with this morning? I legit have no idea how it got here.

Hey! :rose:

I wanted to drop by personally to say thanks for joining TheWritePlace! I’m excited that people seem enthusiastic about it :giggle: If you wanna know more about our group check out Our Rules (there aren’t many and they’re all mostly common sense to me!) or just ask! If you fancy getting more involved we do have positions open which you can find out about here. For now I hope you enjoy the group and find it helpful. If you have ideas on how to make it more useful, suggestions, feedback, anything, just let us know - and when our chatroom #TheWriteRoom officially launches (soon) I hope to see you in there too :love:
