Late Breaking News: I'm growing a Mo

I'm going to paste this blurb in directly from the Movember people because they explain it better than me, but essentially, I'm going to grow a Mo during November to raise money for Men's health. (The health, not the magazine)

Hi all,

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I’ll be growin a moustache. That’s right I’m bringing the Mo back because I’m passionate about changing the state of men’s health.

Male health is a major issue, did you know:

Men are far less healthy than women. The average life expectancy of males is 6 years less than females.
Every year in Australia 2,700 men die of prostate cancer – more than the number of women who die from breast cancer.
Depression affects 1 in 6 men…Most don’t seek help. Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide. Rates of suicide are more than double the national road toll.
Help me change the face of men’s health by sponsoring my mo.

Please go to, enter my Rego number which is 25953 and your credit card details. All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible.

The money raised by Movember will be used to change the face of men's health by creating awareness and funding research into prostate cancer and male depression.

Movember culminates at the end of the month at the Gala Partè where I’ll be parading my Mo on the cat walk for a chance to be crowned the Man of Movember. If you want to be part of this great night you’ll have to purchase a Gala Parte ticket for $33.00 (inc GST).

I'm also running (yet another) blog, this one focussing on my mo progress which you can check out here

Expect regular postings (better than here,hey) and pics and at least one bad mo pun each day.

In unrelated news, just picked up the new Ground Components (Melb) album and it's a cracker - lots of rock weirdness and a ripper cover of the Paul Kelly song Our Sunshine (about Ned Kelly). Tune in on Monday to hear a little.
