A birthday shave.

This morning, I showered in a hurry, knowing I was running a bit late for work. Normally on such days, I snag the proraso and just pound through the shave, splash on some aftershave, and off I go.

This morning after my shower, I reached into my cabinet and accidentally knocked out my sample of Castle Forbes lime shave cream, so I figured why not. Slathered it up, threw down three passes, finished with the intense burn of Royall Lymes aftershave... and I was ready to go. Pretty nice shave, pretty nice.

Music to shave by: Sonic Youth / The Eternal
The album will be released in a few weeks - I'll be buying it immediately. My uh... pre-release version will have to do until then. :)

To Mr Punk Rock,

Good day. How are you? Honestly, it is so weird to contact you here on your last post since it was your birthday postings. I do not know whether to say Happy Birthday to you but it is very late to say that now. All I can say is that I wish you the best!

Anyways, I saw your Punk Rock Shaving blog site and I am wondering if we could have an exchange link? Some interesting links are listed on your site and I am hoping that you could add me in your list as well. I believe that the readers of my Perfect Shave Dispatch blog would also enjoy your very informative site.

My site covers the techniques for the art of traditional shaving.

Here's a sample description: - Perfect Shave Dispatch

Contributors and writers for this blog are expert in the classic shaving. They want to impart their knowledge to people who want to experience how it is to shave in the most excellent and beautiful way of removing facial hair with a razor.
Wet Shaving is not about being snobbish, but about a better shave with less irritation and fewer ingrown hairs.
With an old style razor, men have the luxury of choosing the sharpness of the blade.

I will be visiting your site from time to time and will be waiting for your favorable reply regarding this concern.
