Have you joined a Moustache Team? You probably should...

I'm supremely thankful for these facial hair internetolympics and all the quality, real life relationships they've inspired. I grew a massive beard and sported a moustache for the first time in my life, and picked up a camera seriously for the first time in years. I owe all of you so much for being so awesome and inventive; the "competition" here makes you push yourself and it's something I'm going to miss a lot. Big thanks to mackle and derble for the time and work they've put into this thing in all its forms (including Miguelito Day.)

It was once said that "Having satirical facial hair apparently isn't as hip as some would like to believe... Maybe there will be another Moustache May someday, but I wouldn't count on it."

Irony can be a good thing sometimes. But I concur that everything has its time and season.

I've been pretty busy this month and haven't been able to put as much time into commenting and chatting but I hope you all stay in touch and we can talk/hang when life settles down a bit. And if you're ever in my neighborhood, you better stop by. There's always beer in the fridge.

All my facebooks/twitters/flickrs/blogs are over on the right. See you around.

I was just talking to Jill yesterday about how much I love your photos. You've displayed enough proof of camera proficiency in the world of in-camera trickery, but you never veer to far away from the natural beauty of a "seemingly" simple portrait. And you captions have often cracked me up ("Don't worry, they're prescription." being a recent favorite). I guess what I'm saying is, I'm a fan of your work. I'm glad to have met you. And I will see you around.

It's been great watching your photography reach ridiculously awesome levels over the years. Inspirational stuff, for sure.

Keep being radical, and keep in touch. Hit me up on IM (awesomehogger) sometime.

Hey man it's been a true pleasure following your photos throughout the last few years. Your style rocks massive awesome balls! Seriously, I remember seeing a shot of your typical photo setup during Whiskerino and running out to get a clip light and tri-pod to copy it. Keep creating and publishing.

Take care.

I like your ideas. In life and in regards to Portland. It was a lot of fun watching you evolve since Whiskerino. You were pure magic then and now you are just plain sorcery.

Just realized i never gave you any words in my comment trek.
And that would have been a shame had that gone unnoticed. You were one of several that i actually had followed because i didn't want to miss your greatness... Thank you Sir.
