Haaaay Guys

That hat in the background I wear out to the races on Sundays.

So I've been a member here for three months and watched it for close to two years and this is my first post (I comment on occasion). My dreads are somewhere around three months old, and these are the first pictures I've ever taken of them. I don't know, I'm just more about the experience of having them and where it takes me rather than documenting their progress and phases. Plus, I hate taking pictures of myself. In the middle of the act it just seems like the most self-centered thing to me. I'd rather be caught masturbating by my grandmother than be caught taking pictures of myself. To each his own, I suppose.
Admittedly, I did do some cleanup with felting needles about two weeks ago to round the tips and patch up some parts of the dreads that were undreaded in the middle, but generally my tips and roots were well knotted to begin with. My girlfriend did the back for me and is much better at the technique, just to give credit where credit is due. Oh, and I'm aware of my loose hairs, and I kinda like 'em.

Blurry, I know. It's a way to retain some small bit of my anonymity.

My Beaker (From Muppets) face:


Yeah, I see it. We are like family.

In closing, I realize I could have taken much better pictures if I had 1) gone with natural lighting, 2) cleaned the mirror, or 3) gotten someone else to do them, but I don't have those kind of resources. At least I didn't use the flash; I'm smart enough to know that.

Check yo'self before you wreck yo'self,
