The search is so different…
idk ‘bout this.
Illustrations from Disney News, Fall 1978, for Mickey Mouse’s 50th birthday. The interesting bit is his birthday moved around alot. Up until his 40th birthday it was generally on September 28th, the date of his first cartoon. On his 40th it was considered to be October 28th. During most of those years Disney merchandising and films would pick any number of weekends in September and October to have special celebrations and rent films to theaters for his birthday. For the 50th (where the above illustrations were for) the date was moved to the first showing of in Steamboat Willie on November 18, 1928. That wasn’t Mickey’s first film, but it was considered his first major role, with a lot of positive press. Since the 50th, his birthday has continued on November 18th. Via Vintage Disneyland Tickets. More vintage Disney.
Happy 85th Birthday Mickey! You don’t look a day over 21 (; Without the birth of you happiness would have lost its meaning. ♥ xoxo
“I heard about No Shave November and I just kinda got roped into it naturally. I hardly shave as it is and I figure if everyone else isn’t shaving might as well do it too,” says Taylor Hayes, junior electrical engineering/math majors. Some people celebrate No Shave November as a lazy way of getting through the month. Others enjoy the thought of prostate cancer awareness and having the chance to look manly. “November is prostate cancer awareness month so in order to show how manly we are we grow out our facial hair,” says Nick Guerrero, freshman biochemical engineering major and the only one of the students to know of its origin. “There’s a bulletin board that I made in the union stating why we do No Shave November.” No Shave November is not only raising awareness and funds for male health issues but also for Children & Family Services and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
“I think [No Shave November] is pretty good because it raises money for any people with health issues,” says Patricia Rosas, freshman criminal justice major. There are competitions on both of those websites for No Shave November and some of the rules for St. Jude’s are as follows: shave on October 31st, take a picture and post it on your Facebook, no shaving, only trimming, for the entire month of November, if someone wants a participant to shave they can donate money to St. Jude’s as well as another person can donate more money for that person to not shave, participants can donate $30 to shave before the end of November, and all proceeds benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
On Movember.com, men also participate in No Shave November only in a more interesting way. Men still start clean shaven on November 1st, but they groom, wax and trim their way to a perfect moustache. “I think it’s awesome! We save money and time without having to shave, it gives us an ability to always show off how manly we are, and it’s for a great cause. Every man should do it,” says Guerrero. On the other hand, some students think the idea of “proving your manliness” to be a little too cliché and become less interested.
“That reminds me of Fight Club when he goes to the testicular cancer support group and they’re all crying and saying how it doesn’t make them less of men,” says Hayes. “I’m indifferent because I don’t ever worry about my manliness and I don’t think any man with prostate cancer should. It doesn’t make you less of a man to have prostate cancer.” Other students felt the same. If a person has prostate cancer or any other health issue it should not make them feel any less or worse of themselves. “That seems stupid and I don’t want to do it anymore. Just because you have prostate cancer you have to prove that you’re a man? No,” says Gregory Samaniego-Morris, freshman elementary education major.
Whether someone is celebrating No Shave November knowing the facts or not, the tradition will still continue and make true lumberjacks out of the males, showing their manliest side and their compassion for health issues.
An article written by me for the Lumberjack Newspaper back in 2011. The editors scrapped it before even editing it because they thought it was boring.
Hope you enjoy (:
