I picked up an Artist’s Club Feather straight razor the other day (the special edition one, of course) and I think I’m finally getting the hang of it. Cut the heck out of my face the first time I used it, but now I just tend to knick myself a few times on my neck now and then.

The main difference between it and a traditional straight razor, though, is that the Feather’s use disposable blades. That means I can get a super sharp razor for shaving and when it starts to get dull, I just put in a new one. No messing with ‘honing’ or sharpening the blade. Quick and simple. And it’s still cheaper than normal replacement blades for a Mach III or whatever.

Plus, I mean… c’mon… it’s just freakin’ cool looking, you know?

So, really, I get the best of both worlds. :)

Found an odd shop that sells all sorts of unusual stuff (mainly pirate-related). While there, I saw this neat skull with a tribal art pattern. The shop owner said that it could be used as a candle holder, ashtray, etc. But, personally, I like using it as a toothbrush/toothpaste holder in the bathroom :) I didn’t get a shot of it with the toothbrushes, but it looks pretty amusing with them sticking out of its eye sockets. It’s like a warning to all dentists or something — abandon all hope, all ye who enter with floss…

The sunset was gorgeous as we drove back from Fort DeSoto, so I just had to take a shot of it.
