View Full Version : Pictures from our show last Saturday (my hair's growing pretty well!)

Hey all!!

So Sam and I played a show last Saturday at this place called The Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids, MI. It was a whole night of video game cover bands so it was us + three other video game bands (needless to say it was a very fun night for all who were there). The purpose (besides just having fun) was to raise money for the local children's hospital to buy video game equipment for the kids to play while they were in the hospital :eek:

Anyway here are some pictures that were taken that night. Looking at them now I can really see the progress in how long my hair has been getting.

Keep in mind that my hair is pretty sweaty in these pictures from the massive amounts of headbanging I was doing before we went on stage (we were the 3rd band to play).

Its a me!

Here's my favorite shot!

And here's a pic of my hair from the back side. That's me standing next to the stage with my back facing the camera. Would this be considered shoulder length or not yet?

Great pics! I would defiantly say that you're at SL!

May 9th, 2013, 01:05 PM
I agree. It's SL for sure. Your hair looks great.

May 9th, 2013, 01:11 PM
Definitely shoulder! Nice pics! :)

Nice wurly hair, and yes I'd consider that SL. Congrats! :D :thumbsup:

Your hair looks great.

Your hair is looking great! It looks like you put on a fun show too!

Thanks everyone! Yes it was definitely a fun show. I was going absolutely crazy during the other bands. I've found that headbanging is a whole new sensation when you actually have hair to whip around. Feels good man! :rockerdud

Yay SL!! Whoohoo!! Finally!! Now I can update my signature!

We're still getting all the videos uploaded but here's one from the first band that went on, Playing With Power. You don't have to watch the whole thing but it will definitely give you an idea of what the night was like (actually every band was pretty unique so I guess you'd have to watch them all but whatever). Anyway these guys were a lot of fun to watch and you can see they have a projector which shows videos of whatever game they're playing at the time. Also you can catch glimpses of me in front of the stage from time to time but only when someone's camera is flashing lol.


I'll be sure to post a video of our set once its uploaded!

Wow, your hair grows fast!

Yeah I know!! Its only been about 16 months since I stopped cutting my hair and that was going from a buzz cut, about as short as you could get.

Looking great! Men + guitar + long hair = sure win! :)

That's crazy!! I certainly wasn't expecting that! Very cool though. I hope they enjoyed themselves.

congrats on your hair growth!

The full goatee really compliments your long hair in my opinion :thumbsup:

Great growth! and kudos to you for the charity show.

I just finished reading "Just Kids" by Patti Smith, partly about her evolution as a singer and songwriter and performer. It's very good. I just had a flash that you might enjoy it.

Nice growth! (It's shoulder length, IMHO.) The whiskers look pretty good with the guitar, too. --Thanks for the charity show. I have a friend who lost her 14yo son to leukemia, and events like yours make the kids' hospital stays better. thanks. --

You will reach "BSL" in no time! Great pictures!

Yes, shoulder. Very nice hair!

Thanks guys!

So we have a video now of our performance from that night. Now you can see the hair in action! :cool:

The guys from 2 Nerds 1 Podcast are hosting the show so they spend the first few minutes talking and introducing us so the music doesn't start until about 3:20

Hope you enjoy it (whether you are into video games or not).

Great pictures and a great cause! :D
