Speaking of slicking back that hair...
I occasionally get the question, "what kind of hair style is that?" and I respond, "a pompadour" It was very popular in the 50's and pretty much anyone, who was anyone had a pompadour. Of course there are a ton of varieties but you'll know one when you see it. Elvis, Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, James Dean, Conan O'Brien, and many more rocked the pomp to great effect.
So now I'm sure you're clamoring, "Where can I get my hair cut like that?" Well kids, it's a little harder than you'd think but fortunately for you, I have a solution. Tomcat's Barbershop located on 130 India St., Brooklyn NY is where I go to get my ears lowered. I found this place a few years ago after several hit and misses at various barbershops. It's sad to say but most places don't know what you want. Some only know short and shorter, and others only understand you if you say "blow out". Not on my watch.
So If you're looking to get a cool haircut in a really happening place, check it out. Not only is it the bee's knees but they sell a good selection of different pomades, which is the key to my success (that's another post for another time) Check out Tomcat's site right here: http://tomcatsbarbershop.com/
It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.
I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
