documentary "Died Young Stayed Pretty"

|:| Mo Mo Mo, How Do You Like It |:|

I've always been a fan of the facial furniture
and this November Rockstar Games is sponsoring
men's health charity Movember.
It's for a good cause and I'll be trying my hardest
to grow and semblance of lip plummage.

If you'd like to sponsor me that would be well
appreciated and you can go


to contribute.
Any donations are welcomed.

Also, if anyone is interested in participating
themsleves I think you can still register
and Rockstar is hosting a comp for the best
mosutachioed fella to become a character in
Red Dead Redemption.

I didn't think I could find this guy a bigger idiot
until I clocked him appearing in this ridiculous
sounding show.
Great quote (Dyer about Vicious) -

"People would come just to see him but why?
What was it about this guy? He was talentless really."

I think that sums up Dyers career too.
