Rock Star To Marine Corps In One Minute


I don’t know about you, but every couple of years I get sick of being mistaken for a rock star, tired of women chatting me up all the time and have had enough of guys looking at me with jealousy in their eyes. When I can’t stand any more I decide it’s time to get my hair cut off to scare them all away!

Ok, all of that is a complete lie. What I meant to say was that every couple of years I get sick of shampooing and conditioning my hair all the time, tired of having to try and make it look anything other than a total shambles and have had enough of it getting in the way and making me overly hot when playing football. When I can’t stand it any more I decide it’s time to get my hair cut off so I can focus on the important things in life – and stop being obsessed with my hair!

And today was just such a day. Time to switch from rock star to military man. So here is that transformation process in all its glory courtesy of my lovely assistant. Sort of like going from a moth to a caterpillar. (If you can’t see it in your feed reader, click here).

There, all gone! And I’ve got lots of hair to start work on a Yeti costume! πŸ™‚

  1. Private Connors!!!!!

    All you need is a uniform, and you’d look better than a rock star πŸ™‚

    The hair dresser looks quite glamorous too.

    It looked itchy though. Those stray hairs don’t go unnoticed, do they?


  2. Nooooo!!

    Sorry, i always reacting in such maner then see someone is cutting off his beautyfull hairs. Just becose i’m started to getting bolder every year :(. God damn that fathers herritage!

    But anyway – looking good with that new style. Marine Corpse needs you πŸ™‚


  3. Thanks for the hair update! Can we expect another round of avatar updates? πŸ˜‰ Was that a grade two?

    What did you use to film that? Nice toaster BTW!


    • Nah, I can’t be bothered updating all those avatars! By the time I’ve finished the hair will have grown back!

      I used my old digital compact as the iPhone would need some sort of stand to film the scene, or I’d have needed a helper monkey. And yeah, the toaster rocks!


  4. John,

    Just love the new look!!! It looks absolutely great on you, kudos to your hairdresser!


  5. Sorry about that John.

    I meant kudos which is praise for your hairdresser, your lovely wife.


  6. That was funny! I looked back on here and said to myself “you didn’t spell it wrong!” Then saw. corrected it.

    Kudos John!
