Moustache May 2011

Mackle

There is simply no way to write a caption that encapsulates all of my thoughts and viewpoints on Moustache May / Whiskerino / facial hair communities. There is a lot to say and squeezing it into this space wouldn't do any of it justice.

I will say this, I assumed that when the end came I would feel total relief... finally casting off the duties of curator and the guilt of not participating enough. In fact, I feel quite a bit of reluctance to let it go. This is a wonderfully special place. I am sad to close to doors on this incredible thing we helped create but I also know that in order to preserve its greatness, we have to stop.

So, I look to the future and challenge each and everyone of you in the NEXT step of Moustache May. Your task is two-fold:

1) Actually continue to keep in contact with each other. The friendships made here are a tight bond, don't let that fall apart. Exchange emails, IMs, websites, tumblrs, snail mail addresses, facebook profiles, whatever it takes to maintain your contact. Don't let Moustache May fizzle out.

2) Keep being creative. You all have proven that this site provides a stomping ground for great imagination (and entertainment). Find a way to harness that beyond today. You're too good not to.

I can't thank all of you enough. Moustache May exists because you all come to the site, post such amazing things and generate a community that is absolutely unexplainable to the outside world.

I am humbled by everything that's happened since the first undertaking in 2003. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I'll see you on the outside.
