Something Faster This Way Comes

So yeah, the Sasquatch/not King Kong big thing I was talking about...

I am going to do something different next year.  It's not incredibly different from what I normally do, but just a change to mix things up, make life more pleasant, and add a bit more joie de vie.  This project was back burnered last year, almost didn't happen when something else came up in September involving a beer factory (known as a brewplacery), but is now full bore for 2013.

It had to start somewhere.


Yes, it starts with a bad mustache, but it ends with a faster one.

I'll be officially riding for Faster Mustache in 2013, more specifically Faster Mustache: Charlotte.

Also known as:

Over the past seven years, the organization has grown strong in Atlanta.  In 2012 they branched out into the Queen City with a very close knit crew.  I've been riding in an around these guys for the better part of a year now.  They ride bikes, drink beer, make great bike race, and have a thing for pinewood derby racing and male scissor fighting.

You may ask yourself, "Why would Team Dicky do this unless there was a free bike involved?"

Sometimes it's nice to be part of something bigger.  I've done fine on my own, but Lenny was never gonna have his own show.

I'll be contributing over on the new and improved (not yet) Faster Mustache site.  Hopefully there will be some FM related fodder I can include over here.  It will be a reciprocally beneficial relationship full of wonder and uncomfortable man hugs. I imagine I'll be riding the same bike(s), doing the same races, and performing just as inconsistently as ever.

I will have to do something I am not comfortable with...

wear red.

2012 kit shown above

The FM kits have always been predominantly red, that being the sole color I truly despise wearing.  I can't say exactly why.  I think it looks great on others.  It's just that my favorite kits are usually a combination of black, white, and maybe some gray.  I do have to admit, I made canary blue look pretty good.

I guess I'll have to learn to live with it.  It's all part of selling your soul to "the industry."

Now to come up with a catchy slogan for the ad campaign...

"Team Dicky: making your mustache that much faster and a little less under control in 2013."

In the aka image I sure hope that's an upside down cobra and not a lower intestine?

one can only guess what lurks under the veil of cool that came up with that idea or what it means...

Dicky in your mustache? yea, maybe not....

Not sure that red will go well with the pink.

Is team jumping a symptom of your ADHD?

As far as my ADHD goes, I would say...

Oh look, there's a little bird outside the window.

There should be a mustache on the skull head of the jersey.
