Beard Of The Week

A reader writes:

I’m surprised that Kristofer Hivju, who plays the wildling commander Tormund Giantsbane on Game of Thrones, has not made it into Beard of the Week.

Yes, it has been a lapse. Of all the GoT beards, Hivju’s is easily the Vikingest.

It came from the in-tray:

I’m a long-time Dish reader and wanted to send in a pic of my daughter Layla and myself for BOTW consideration. Thanks!

I thought you might want this as a Beard of the Week. My colleague Matthew Bingley took the photo while covering the World Women’s Curling Championship in Saint John, New Brunswick.

A subscriber, by sending the above photo, panders successfully:

I just renewed and bumped up the price to $25 for now, and likely more to come later. I’ve been a reader for a solid decade, and for a busy person with limited reading time, the Dish offers an incredible value with a great balance of breadth and depth. We’re all richer for it.


Holy shit. It’s taken me this long to figure out that the Dish and my firstborn have the same exact date of birth (one year ago today). I’ve been procrastinating on the renewal, but obviously the universe wants me to knock it off. Anyway: I renewed for $23.273 (which I rounded up to $23.28), which is how you spell “beard” on a standard keypad.

I just renewed for $50, which I consider a bargain. I’ve been reading this blog almost cover to cover since about the time you moved to the Atlantic; and while I’m not into religion or poetry, I read those posts too. They are always thoughtful and worth my time. With all the blowhards out there, it’s refreshing to hear a voice that’s passionate about a wide variety of worthwhile things without being mind-numbingly monomaniacal and bonkers. Bon chance.

And as long as you’re posting silly pictures of Dishheads, feel free to use this one. Every boy should have a rhinoceros.

Meanwhile, Salon gets all paranoid:

“Duck Dynasty’s” bearded male stars offer a symbolic reaffirmation of traditional values onto which many Americans threatened by social change can latch.

So where are all the big-bearded Republican candidates? And, er, how do you account for Brooklyn? Meanwhile, a runner-up for Beard of the Week:

Super Rugby Rd 10 - Lions v Brumbies

I leave it to the Guardian’s round-up of great sports beards to describe it:

Being lost for the appropriate words with which to describe the beard worn by the South African back row Josh Strauss, who has now completed the necessary quarantine period and installed his magnificent specimen in a suitably airy, light and fecund greenhouse somewhere in Glasgow, I’m reduced to wondering exactly which Confederate Civil War general he resembles most. Maybe James Longstreet crossbred with Stonewall Jackson? If nothing else, it’s an image.

Thanks to a reader:

I can’t be the first one who has brought Jon Hamm’s new beard to your attention, but I may be the first one to send you screenshot of him rocking that beard whilst holding a baby snow leopard (from Wednesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live – clip here). Enjoy.

One of dozens of hirsute portraits by Greg Anderson Photography of the participants in the 2013 Beard And Mustache Championships in New Orleans a couple weeks ago. This one is Scavullo meets young Gandalf. I am not worthy.

Update from a nerd:

As your friend and LoTR superfan Stephen Colbert would happily point out, Gandalf was never young. The Istari – the wizards – were spirits sent to Middle Earth by the Valar in the form of old men.

Nevertheless, pretty rockin’ beard.
