Gentlemen, start your Mengines! The latest in a series of grueling (grooming?) preliminaries in the build-up to the World Beard and Mustache Championships took place on October 2 at the picturesque surrounds of the East Bavarian Beard Club. Oh, and the turn-out was impressive: 150 participants, competing in events as varied and, errr, hairy, as Freestyle Beard and Natural Moustache. [Photos via the Huffington Post]
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
