Hello.

I went by 'Lasers go Pew Pew' on Esangha, but I am taking this as an opportunity to rename myself based on my strange affinity for Brian Bosworth, his Oakleys, his popped collar, and his bitchin' hairdo.

So after being away for a while, I noticed that Esangha appears to be no more. So it goes.

Today, I stumbled across this site and noticed that quite a few of my favorite peeps from that site post here. And it's strictly Theravada to boot! I think I'll be staying...

Cheers.

I found those fashion links very interesting. I had always thought popped collars started as a hockey coach thing.

From the angle in the avatar, I can see how one may mistake Brian Bosworth's hairdo for a simple Grace Jones-like pencil-top. However, if we look at it from another angle:

We can see he is also sporting a mullet, which completes the look. Here is a shot of him at maximum plumage:

I confess, I once had this same plumage...shaved closer and higher on the sides. With green or purple streaks and a few dreds. Gawd, the late 70s, early 80s were fun. :tongue:

Damdifino. I never heard of this guy before now. Googling him, while providing some entertainment, I could have happily lived my life without ever hearing about him.

The Boz was a star player in American football in college in the early 1980's, but was most known for his look and lifestyle. He never performed well in the professional league (NFL). But with that look, still made a success with acting.

I think The Boz look and lifestyle was an out-growth of the punk rock look and scene from the late 1970's. Personally, I don't care for the hair-dos or the color streaks or the lifestyle, my postings were only about the popped collar look. :D

Several celebrities, Buddhist and non-Buddhist do the hi-collar look occasionally and models and supermodels do it enough to keep it relatively in style most of the time.

Yeah, attachments, fads, and styles can do that. As I age, my cravings and interest has waned somewhat, but still some there. :tongue:

These days I sport an uber fashionable shaved head, because I no longer care about hair and I don't have much of it to care about. :tongue:
