There has been some sniping in the comments that I am apparently trying to grow big sideburns to resemble Jemaine from "Flight of the Conchords." I'm OK with that, silly and slanderous analysis as it may be. It beats being accused of growing sideburns to hang on to my 20s by a pathetic thread, as they slip away, inexorably, in a few short months. In any event, I have decided to let the readers decide - awesome, or only slightly awesome?
fig A. Here, in natural sunlight, you can see my sideburns shimmer as I "kick it" on my ranch. Rustic!
fig B. In this representation, they play off nicely against a necktie my Uncle Harry gave me. Renumeriffic!
As long as we're on the subject, here are the Conchords channeling Donovan. Fabulous.
