Rich and I were at the Javits Center this past weekend signing copies of “Sweet Stache” at the Adams Media booth. It was as Borat might say ” a big success.” Here’s some sights and staches from the day. Continue reading
These Celtic rock jammers are pretty refreshing to listen to given other artists in their genre. In any event, I asked guitarist and vocalist Trevor Lewington who had the best stache ever, and here’s what he said…

Darren Aronofsky is likely to land an Oscar nomination for his docu-style behind the camera, but yesterday in Manhattan, the guy’s face took center stage. The Brooklyn-born filmmaker sported a nicely groomed pushbroom. I had the good fortune to chat staches with him yesterday. Here’s his explanation… oh and don’t fret we’ll have more with Darren later this week.
“Probably because Brad Pitt has one in Inglorius Basterds. I bumped into him like a couple weeks ago, saw it and made fun of it…You know what’s so strange. What happened is I was just screwing around,” he explained.

As we made way toward more gripping and grappling conversation, Aronofsky wrapped it up with a parting shot. “Hopefully, eventually she’ll grow out of it. It was a prank gone bad.”

I think I helped put the mustache back into the hearts and minds of America. More importantly, I’m pretty sure I helped put the mustache back on a few friendly faces. Recently, however, I’ve wondered what exactly has the mustache done for me? It’s been a long, arduous task of getting a book about furry beasts under a man’s nose published, and that difficult journey is far from over. In the coming weeks, I may or may not reveal the story behind the story behind The Book of ‘Bert.’ Stay tuned.
