Two new rocks !!!
I was in the local mall here at lunch - looking for Mennen Cool Spice AS, when I took a chance in a new bargain store (not a dollar store, I guess they buy up stock from failed businesses etc.) and there it was... in all its flat red carboard box and milky glass glory:
an entire shelf of old stock Old Spice!
I bougth two bottles!
Its not the ship logo on the bottle, but the newer logo.... a good thing that SWMBO told me that she actually likes it (in small doses)...
I'm set for life.... well, maybe.
look what was in the mail this week..........

Fortunately I'm not afflicted with RAD, though my SCAD is out of control. In an effort to head off my newly developing SBAD, I picked up a Rooney Heritage Emillion in Super Badger from Vintage Blades LLC. All I can say is WOW! Completely different from my other brushes - pleasantly stiff (which is how I like 'em) but oh so soft on the face. I was shocked how much water this baby sucks up, and holds enough lather for 4 passes without recharging. I think SBAD has been satisfied (at least for now).
The thick handle is sweet
50 blades sampler pack: I should be ok for the next year.
Shaving goo and cartridges free since July 2008... except that one time at the smelter.

I just got my new Rooney Style 2 size 1 super badger brush yesterday from Jim at vintage blades. He is a great resource and the customer service is superb. I received the product quickly and it is fantastic. I used some Castle Forbes lime as my first go around. The Brush is very soft and supple on the tips but has plenty of backbone for hard creams and soaps. It holds a lot of water, it is extremely dense and lathers well. It is just the right size, not too big that you cant put cream on your upper lip, but just right size for slathering the thick rich lather all over your face as you massage it into your beard. This is my favorite new brush. I have attached pictures below to those interested. Travis
Lets see, no pictures yet, since half isn't in yet.
Tabac in the ceramic bowl
2 Bigelow/Proraso SC tubes (Bogo coupon from Bath and Body)
Caswell Massey Lime AS
Panasonic travel battery razor (for the times when I'm out in the field with no running water and no plug to charge the Braun that was my daily before this addiction started)
Yes they are after it bloomed. I can't believe how dense a brush it is. I was comparing it to some of my others with a 22mm knot and there just is no comparison. My Col. Conks/Vulvix look like they haven't bloomed when sitting next to the Rooney. Travis
SCS Very V cream
SCS Barbershop soap
SCS Lanolin soap
Proraso Aloe & Green Tea soap on the way
Erasmic soap and stick on the way

I need to fix the case. It doesn't spring open and it looks like it should be. Anyone know how to fix it?
