The Stache Bash event of the world is coming up on Friday October 30 in St. Louis. The American Mustache Institute's yearly Stache Bash is undoubtedly one of the greatest and most bizarre parties on the planet-I've been attending it and hosting that bitch since it started - and now we can barely find a venue to contain the veracity of stache it attracts. And to top it off- this year- both the legendary John Oates and my favorite mustache band, The Flavor Savers, are performing. Costumes are strongly encouraged-dress to your staches! Tickets still available- but going fast!

9.15.08 Folks, it has recently come to my attention that in this year of 2008- a man will take office. This man does not represent Democrats. He does not represent Republicans, nor any other party associated with the United States government. This man represents the mustache and stands for the rights of all mustached people here in the U.S and around the world. He is a man who wears his justice on his lip. And though he may trap unwanted particles deep within the jungle of this lip, he stands firm and proud, determined to see a world where a man is not judged by the color of his skin or where he went to college, but rather by the style of mustache he chooses to sport for the sake of sporting. He is "The Mustached American of The Year" and the world will decide who receives this title during the beginning of October. Friends- I encourage you to vote for me, Jay Della Valle, as I pursue this coveted title. Click here to vote.
