The Year Of The Beard!

Published March 4, 2014 08:49:01

NEW VIDEO! My first For Reals Music Video-type video! This song's an oldie but a goodie, called "The Year Of The Beard," written for my (exceptionally beardly) friend Atom Moore's birthday a couple years ago. He and Mikey Neumann helped me shoot this video during JoCo Cruise Crazy IV, and we enlisted the help of dozens of bearded individuals – who not only lent us use of their beards, but also sorted themselves into groups by beard shape, and then sorted themselves by height within the beard shape groups. Geeks! They are the best! The end result is something that I am super proud of, because not only does it look pretty good, but I got to work with a lot of new and old friends and we had a great heap of fun making it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Be honest, Molly. This is going to be the first and only time we see you in a dress, isn't it? :P

I'm glad I have Patreon because I missed this on YT. Great video that made me so jealous of all the bearded men. I want one, too! :(

Awesome song and video and just one more reason to be sad I wasn't on JCCC4. Hopefully I'll be able to make it one of these years.

I was going to shave my beard tonight...I think I'll keep it a few more days.

One of these days I will make it to JCCC and take part in this sort of wackiness! That could have been ME in this video!

Not showing up for the shooting of this video is now my #1 JCCC4 regret... le sigh. Still, awesome! Love it!

So much fun to do and watch! The beard sorting will remain one of my quintessential JCCC memories. I can't really think of another place where such a thing would be likely to happen.

YAY! I had to chill in the game room while my boyfriend got to take part in this video! INVOLVED VICARIOUSLY!

You provided moral support in the all-important Beard Sorting process! A HIGHLY IMPORTANT PROCESS.

Oh, hell, and we needed it. Man, it was hot out there.

I think there's a great disparity between the number of love songs out there, and the number of songs about literally anything else, so I strive to fill in that gap with just my ukulele and my wits.
