Facial hair (tweets/links of the week)

beard

As you may or may not know, The Red Sox this year is growing their facial hair. I’ve also seen the t-shirts.

As Wesley Morris puts it:

I’m talking about the beards, of course. Beards so outrageous and outlandish and inimitable that people aren’t even trying to grow them. They’re just sticking them on. The Red Sox merchandise shops are selling fake beards that you can wear during games. They’re more dye-job Gandalf than Jonny Gomes, but they get the point across: You’re one of them.

I have never *ever* grown a facial hair in my life. And I am trying it for the first time, and probably the last time. It’s pretty pathetic. Not dense enough. But I will eventually post some kind of photo somewhere. It is kind of rare. There is even a website: Asians with Facial Hair. Their tag line is “relatively rare and undocumented.” There for I need to try it out and document it.

I been tweeting nonsense since May 19, 2007 (such long time ago, can you believe that?). I put weekly digests of my tweets on this blog, so that I can search for it quicker using my blog’s search function. I tweet awfully a lot about baseball (I am a Red Sox fan, if you didn’t notice), but if you are interested, please follow me at @DaigoFuji. Here are my tweets between Oct 6 and Oct 12:

I’ve been posting links that I liked at Posterous (RIP) and then my tumblr blog. Here are the week worth of links:
