I’ll be a special guest on the News 12 Morning Show – Westchester today after 9:30 a.m. Just another Manic Mustache Monday.
We told you all about Alex Woodard earlier this week. Scroll back, fool. In any event, the singer/songwriter has done us a solid by writing a song for thecheappop.com. That’s right – the site now has a theme song. Last time I checked the other sites don’t have that. Click here to listen to the exclusive “moustaches”.
It is the best song ever. Look for the accompanying video next week!
As reported today (well for me but in reality Aug. 10) by NYMag.com, Jonah Hill is just one of a slew of guest stars on the upcoming season of Sesame Street. Hill teaches kids about mustaches. Pretty damn cool. I must say. Click for NY Mag story here and marvel at the wonder of seeing Elmo with a mustache. If only they gave Bert a bert. Thanks to Nell Alk for the mustache tip.
This comes from The Jerusalem Post…
Hamas has resumed its policy of shaving mustaches of political opponents to humiliate them, Fatah officials said Wednesday. Hamas resorted to this form of punishment in the past after arresting senior Fatah representatives in the Gaza Strip, the officials said.
Jason Giambi’s mustache is getting all the press in New York these days and really driving mustaches overall from honest-to-goodness unappreciated fashion statements to an all-out-exposed fad to gain attention, but let’s not forget about a former New York first baseman who had some Gold Gloves and acting chops to go with one truly signature ‘stache.
Keith Hernandez’s mustache is a gift from the Gods. It’s perfectly trimmed, smells great, and looks even better. As pointed out in the now defunct but no less revolutionary and way-before-it’s-time website, A Quest for Keith, (cheap pop right there) Hernandez’s mustache knew no bounds. As we head into the All-Star Game, let’s not forget a New York legend who didn’t grow the ‘stache as a marketing ploy or team distraction. He grew his mustache because he wanted to. When I had the good fortune of interviewing the should-be Hall of Famer last year, he noted how the mustache has always been a part of him and always will. “I’m never shaving my mustache,” he said during that interview. Let’s begin placing bets now when Giambi will shave his.

The New York Yankees have jumped on the bandwagon and will distribute over 20,000 fake mustaches before tonight’s showdown against the first place Tampa Bay Rays. The campaign is in support of Jason Giambi trying to earn a spot on the 2008 All-Star Roster in MLB’s Final Vote Contest. So regardless if Giambi and his bert win, the real question is whether or note Giambi is in fact wearing a fake mustache himself or if he is simply borrowing a mustache from a past Yankee legend.
During the 1980’s Steve “Bye Bye” Balboni was nicknamed for his home run hitting but was also known for his below average fielding and above average bristles (Sounds very familiar doesn’t it). Could it be Dale Berra’s stache that is causing this Bronx voting frenzy. Dale is the son of former Yankee great Yogi Berra who has definitly done his share of lingering during the final year of the old Yankee Stadium. One has to wonder if the Giambi ‘stache is really the Alvaro Espinoza ‘stache. Giambi entered Tuesday’s game batting .256 on the season. In Espinoza’s 15 season career he averaged .254. Regardless of whose Major League Mustache Giambi is wearing I will put my despise of the Yankees aside in hopes that the All-Star ‘Stache makes the team (Sorry Mr. Longoria).

Bikinis. Beach. Lotion. Yep, the summer is fast approaching but for thecheappop.com, the season means more than tanning and jumping into a ice-cold pool with our floaties on.

Mustaches are refreshing – put one on and put one on a T-shirt, and you look like one suave ‘stached hipster. The list starts after the jump. Continue reading →

All I ever wanted was a mustache. Actually, all I ever wanted was to be able to write for a website that delivers a daily dose of mustache envy. Yeah, that makes a little more sense.
Today, I decided to write about random out of touch thoughts that come to my head. Continue reading →
Welcome to a new irregular feature on the site… here’s a couple mustache highlights for the week…
Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo is all over the web with his new ‘stache. The group’s new album is dropping next week, and its first single “Porks and Beans” or something like that – is heating up on the web with its viral superstar-laden video.

John Travolta was filming scenes for The Taking of the Pelham 123 in Times Square. Travolta, who plays a terrorist in the film and sports one hell of a mustache, was seen walking among pedestrians while filming (notice the Tootsie shot after the fold), then while in between takes, he chatted with photographer Steve Sands. Director Tony Scott talked over some notes on 42nd Street. Later, Travolta would wait inside the Times Square subway station. If Metro North looked like John Travolta’s mustache, I’d travel into the city more often.
