Haircut Boy


1993 — Last time I got my hair cut
1996 — I quit combing my hair
2003 — I finally cut off my dreads
The dreads, thursday morning
The first cut
Pile O’ dreadlocks
First time with short hair in 10 years

    So did you do this to sell the hair to a wig maker? Damn, Whoa! Stunned.

    I’m not even on the geeks list, but when I heard about this–yikes. Very becoming. Congrats. What are you doing to do with the spiders and mice that no longer have a home?

    Holy crap. Haven’t talked to you in a long while. Hope all is well.

    Aliens (no doubt working in collusion with members of the Republican party) have replaced Wally with a pod person!
    Does this mean I have to grow my hair long now?

    Look out Enrique Iglesias! There’s a new short haired stud out there. Thanks for sending out the link, Walls.

    As all things in the universe strive towards balance…
    I now have dreadlocks. Keep it real, Wally. Peace to your culture.

    Wally, I would be interested to see even more off the top. I did not either say “whoa”. What is this place anyway and Why haven’t you tell me about it before? ;-)

    cg — republican? ahem
    \@matthias — i’m thinking of getting one made for myself!
    jen garone — i’m so ahead of the curve i be lappin’ mofos…
    Matt McAdams — this is the so-called “responsibility era” – they’re on their own now.
    fish — governor owens and i have the same hairstylist.
    Jason Haggstrom — it’s nice that my neck no longer hurts every time i get up in the morning.
    Michael Granger — i lost ten pounds on the scale. i’m serious.
    Starky — the hair is only cosmetic. i’m still the irresponsible and lazy person you always knew.
    Max — you know, the enrique look is the main reason i got them cut.
    Timbo — send me pix
    Kevin Ellis — for days, i’d ask jay what happened to my hair, his response? “you got it all cut off!”
    Cal #2 — i’m growing it out. it’ll be the eddie munster look for a few months i’m afraid.
