I've run across a few websites that have pretty ridiculous levels of shaving information. They are dedicated, it seems, to the concept that shaving is a manly rite of self-pampering that demands a great deal of thought and the involvment of exotic and expensive equipment.
It makes me want to mock up a Matt Groening- or Ruben Bolling-style fake magazine cover: "Blade: The Magazine For Those Who Shave". Or maybe "Blade: Shave Excellent".
Possible article ideas:
- Damascus steel: are you worth it? Yes!
- Brushes: Is a synthetic your future? We review seven up-and-comers!
- Distancing yourself from the "Schillette" crowd
- Cleaning German strop oil from your moleskine
- Five lotions under $50
You get the idea.
