I get my hair cut twice a year

Whether I need to or not. I am hoping to get a discount coupon in the mail. So far, nothing.

But while waiting patiently I noticed that today is the birthday of Thomas Hampson, who is seen in this clip singing the famous Largo al Factotum aria from The Barber of Seville, or Il Barbiere di Siviglia, by Gioachino Rossini. He is 77 today. Hampson that is, Rossini would be 227 years old by now, but I think he died a long time ago. I hope Mr. Hampson has many more birthdays - he is a singer of rare excellence.


I just rewatched that video and notice that he is signing while he is singing - how funny is that?

Just keep some barbers' scissors by the computer and idly clip any hair that feels too long from time to time.

You'll look like you need a haircut but not urgently so.

I like that plan!

I have a Hammacher Schlemmer Self-Barber (basically a fat comb machine) that solves the problem. Paid for itself many times over. What a godsend. Barber free for the last three years. But still not debt free. :^(

Hey rh, doesn't that get a bit messy after awhile?

Endorsed. But might not work for curly, kinky hair.

Idly clip any hair that feels too long?

Any hair that feels too long??? How many hours of hair feeling does that involve? I'm guessing the answer depends on how many hairs one has to touch.
