Mike Oswald, in conversation about the ‘stache:
What makes a successful moustache?
A successful moustache is one that transforms the identity of someone into something completely different. What would a super-villain be without a thin evil ‘stache? What self respecting lumberjack would be clean-shaven? That is why I have assumed a crime-fighting alter ego. It comes with the territory.
And you think you’ve grown a satisfactory one?
You’ll be the judge of that (hint: not a chance!)
How has your family handled the growth on your face?
I think my dog is jealous that I can seemingly grow hair on demand.
Do you see benefits to having a ‘stache?
Ever wanted to enjoy a beer after that last sip? Now you can!
You play horn – does the growth affect your playing?
My tone is a little fuzzier.
Do you feel different inside when you have a moustache?
The largest pro is that it really does improve ponder-ability and think-ocity. For example, three of us Movember guys were all in a players’ meeting together, and I noticed that all three of us were hard-at-thinking scratching our chins or upper lips. The results speak for themselves.
