Staches Save Lives and 80s Bands Don't

Now this may not be the most unique Stache I've ever come across, but slap on an 80s rockstar wig and a good cause and I'm game.

At 28, Travis Frink (another Huntington Beach-er) was probably a little too young to really get into the glam/hair bands of the 80s. BUT nowadays, he is totally pulling off a tribute to the hair band look plus a Stache. And Travis did it to raise money with his company Quiksilver for the Movember cause that helps fight prostate cancer (see below). That's way more style and contribution than 80s ultra-glam rockbands like . . . Poison. First, the Poison bandmembers look like they can't even grow a Stache.And second, their only (semi) worthy contribution to this world is "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." And seriously, what kind of contribution is that?

Moral of the story: Staches Save Lives. (and 80s Bands Don't)



More about Movember: Come the 11th month of every year, Movember begins and guys all over the world start growing out their Mo (Aussie word for mustache). The Movember charity event began in Australia (hence the "Mo"), then spread worldwide, to encourage guys to grow out their Stache during November to raise money and awareness for the fight against prostate cancer. And spreading the Movember word definitely happens considering guys with Staches encounter a Stache-curious person almost daily, allowing them to tell their Stache story time and again.
