Day 22, the penultimate week of MOvember 2013. Its been a blast so far, haven’t made as much money as last year but I’ve had even more fun uploading MO-posts to my blog.
Earlier this week my MO and me travelled to the Highlands. Wrapping up nice and warm was essential – I made sure my MO was covered throughout the trip to avoid the harsh winter and to prevent the chances of the hairs recoiling back into the skin, which is what often happens in cold weather conditions.
Today’s MOPhoto is in honour of all those singer-songwriter duet bands out there. ‘Brothers MO’ are a band from Inverness, their latest LP entitled Mo You Up has been no.1 in Puerto Rico for the last seven years.
MOustaches in the news
The creators of MOvember have released a cookbook aimed at the modern gentleman and his Moustache.
Cook Like A Man is the official MOvember cookbook and includes a number of manly recipes including spiced crab and avocado on toast plus tai loin of pork and prawn with grilled sea bass.
MOvember co-founder, Justin Coglan, said: “We thought we’d teach the modern man how to cook, what he needs in the kitchen, and how to woo a lady, or a man, at home.
“It’s all about cutting out fast food and teaching guys how to cook cool stuff so you can have a dinner party and have people bring wine to your house.”
Recipe contributor David Johnson, Head Chef at Swan Shakespeare’s Globe, and Sam Wilson, head Chef at Caravan Kings Cross London suggested that the cookbook is all about keeping it simple.
He said: “It can be for lunch, brunch – if you put a poached egg on top – or you can break it down to smaller portions for a party.”
A character portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction (1994) directed by Quentin Tarantino, Winnfield is a hitman working alongside Vincent Vega for Marsellus Wallace.
The role of Jules Winnfield was actually written with Jackson in mind but after his first audition the actor almost lost out after being overshadowed by Paul Calderón.
Border lining a beard, Winnfield’s ‘Horseshoe’ moustache – Often confused with the Handlebar Moustache, the horseshoe was possibly popularized by modern cowboys and consists of a full moustache with vertical extensions from the corners of the lips down to the jawline and resembling an upside-down horseshoe.
“And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.”
Facts about MOustaches
A number of tribes in Brazil use moustaches as “Dream catchers”. They believe that by sleeping in the same room as a man wearing a moustache, his hairy upper lip can catch all their bad nightmares and keep them there until the moustache is removed.Thanks for reading.
