    Beard and various component moustaches thereof: We salute you.

    Also, you totally should have gone for the Steampunk era Ringmaster style handlebar moustache and top hat look. That quite possibly would have been the most awesome/disturbing/scary picture ever.

    You look all youthful and as I remember you from PC Gamer staff pictures of yore. Aww.

    Third pic does indeed make you look like one of my teachers. Except he’s a physics teacher, is about 68 and his name’s Lance.

    The civil war one is bestest. Did you do it all with a razor & scissors? If so, that’s pretty skilled. Whenever I have a beard that I’m abotu to shave off, I can never whittle it down to the desired shape. If I’m going for sidies, I always end up with wonky ones that slowly diminish as I desperately try to save what’s left and keep them even :/

    In short: I suck at shaving. Someone should make an arcade game based on it.

    I am getting my beard trimmed tomorrow – paying for it, mark you – so that I don’t look too much like an axe moiderer for my interview.

    I WISH I had the guts to wear a Tickler ‘Tasche – unfortunately, my face is the wrong shape, and my moustache has a tendency to grow up, down, in and out, all at the same time.

    Frankly, I blame My Name Is Earl.

    I usually shave my beard off for comic events – I experimented with the beard for the two I attended in June, and sold fewer books. More rational minds would blame this on the economic pressures of the season – holidays, etc., the lack of need for wacky Xmas gifts – but not I!

    Or possibly me.

    I like the porno-stache. Which is worrying.

    Yes! Everyone likes a good bit of beard fun. Last time I grew a giant beard I shaved it in a variety of humorous ways too. My favourite was the moustache look. It scared the shit out of my wife!

    I kinda wish you’d kept the handlebar, I rather liked that…
    Also, whilst it may be very cruel of me to mention, I keep looking at the current photos and thinking of the wild and shaggy C-monster :-)
    That said, ta very much for the Future of the Left recommendation, we both love ‘em. Have to check out McLusky now.

    Those glasses are in need of some serious straightening.

    I’m still getting over the “Space Invaders” thing you did with the Saturday version!

    Holy shit. I mean, I’d heard of the beard, natch, (I think the whole internet had heard of the beard) but I wasn’t prepared for such bushiness.

    I’m sorry if this has already been pointed out, but you look a lot like the TF2 sniper.

    Your beard rivals my own. One day I hope to have a spectacular beard like yourself.
