“[Raw Art] is a project offering an alternative view upon circus, it promotes artists who are eager to bring their contribution to the development of the circus as a modern art. We call [Raw Art] a project on purpose as sometimes we find difficulties answering the question what it is.

Thank Goodness it is Friday: Moustaches et al

In honor of Friday the 13th AND this weekend’s 2011 World Beard & Moustache Championships in Trondheim, Norway, we offer you the following interesting and pertinent tidbits:

How to say Moustache in 13 different languages:

Croatian– brkovi
Danish– overskæg
Dutch– snor
Finnish– viikset
French– moustache
German– Schnurrbart
Italian– baffi
Norwegian– bart
Polish– w?sy
Portuguese– bigode
Romania– musta??
Spanish– bigote
Swedish– mustasch

If you’re like us, you’ve probably noticed how spell check corrects the word “moustache” with “mustache” at least three or four times a day. Which is the correct spelling? According to Grammarist.com, “Mustachio was originally a variant of mustache, but the former now denotes an especially luxuriant mustache. Moustache is the preferred spelling of mustache in British, Canadian, and Australian English.” Looks like we’re traditionalists when it comes to our facial hair.

5 facts you most likely didn’t know about moustaches
(for more detail, check out the original article HERE on AskMen.com)

1) Moustache experts rank Sam Elliot as having the best moustache ever.
2) The oldest picture of a moustache dates back to 300 B.C.
3) Mark Spitz tricked the 1972 Russian Olympic swim team into growing moustaches.
4) There is a “Freestyle”competition category in the World Beard & Moustache championships.
5) The owners of the three longest moustaches in the world are Indian (record as of 2009: 12.5 feet).

“Movember” is an month-long event that raises vital funds and awareness for men’s health by encouraging men to grow a moustache for the entirety of November.  Essentially, the moustache becomes the equivalent of the pink ribbon for prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. Learn more at Movember.com.

And finally, we here at Fearless are huge fans of Firehouse Moustache wax– check out their website (firehousemoustachewax.com) and their facebook page. We highly recommend their strongest offering, Wacky Tacky, for maximum style and hold.

Eat Mail, May 2011: Ginger Miranda and Macadamia-GO-NUTS

With great excitement, we introduce this month’s Eat Mail extravaganza: the Ginger Miranda Bar and Macadamia-go-NUTS! On a scale of amazing to fantastic, we just couldn’t choose a favorite…

Eager to jump into a mid-summer daydream of summery fruits and buttery-nutty crunch? Us too. We bathed fresh macadamia nuts in blackberry-starfruit dark chocolate, which is even more delicious than it sounds. So much so, it drove us crazy. Hence, Macadamia-go-NUTS!

The madness continued. Inspired by a Carmen Miranda’s fruity adornment from “The Gang’s All Here”, we couldn’t help but samba in banana, mango, and peach along with a touch of ginger delicious to bring it all together. We defy you to watch this Busby Berkley Classic featuring the original lady in the Tutti-Frutti hat and not want to get fruty-licious:

Does all of this sound good? The only way to try them, or any other of our small-batch tasty ridiculousness is to join our EAT MAIL program! This monthly subscription will deliver exotically crafted chocolate treats right to your home or office.

Always made with certified Organic and Kosher ingredients.

EAT MAIL is a $19.99/month service — which essentially covers the cost of ingredients and labor — plus $5 shipping. Each subscription is 2 Servings.

Art of the Title Sequence

Check out this amazing collage detailing the evolution of the movie title sequence, courtesy of Kontraband.com:
Go to www.ArtoftheTitle.com for an in-depth look at a variety of stellar opening credit montages. They’ve recently just posted top-to-bottom look at one of our all-time favorites: Dinner for Schmucks. One can’t help but experience both an intensely awkward respect for and slightly discomfort by the amount of detailed work shown during the intro. After seeing the level of craftsmanship and dedication that went into creating it, all creepy awkwardness is replaced with with a whole lot of artistic awesome.
Go get your amazing on.

Delicious Design: Bicycles by Van Hulsteijn

Thank you, Van Hulseteijn, for combing classic style with modern amazing. This is the T-1000 of pennyfarthing terminators, and we’re in love. I just want to wax up the mustache, throw on a pair of lycra tweed pantaloons, and go for a decidedly non-boneshakin’ ride.

SCIENCE FACT: Chocolate makes your brain feel good… and how!

For all of you who have ever had a satisfying chocolate interaction and dare to learn more, take heed of an extremely informative and accessible article from the Exploratorium Magazine entitled “The Sweet Lure of Chocolate”, particularly the section entitled “Feel Good” Food. It outlines the similarities of the brain’s reaction to other chemicals, including amphetamines and THC , which might explains a lot about that general feeling of loveliness we feel after our daily doses of tasty delicious.

Whether you are a long time listener or a first time caller, the odds are good that if you are reading this, you appreciate chocolate. That doesn’t necessarily mean you know much about it, though. Let’s be honest, you don’t need to have a diploma to intimately enjoy this delicious superfood. Nor do you have to live in a chocolate factory to understand how supremely beneficial chocolate is to fearlessly living a happy life. The proof is in the putting, so to speak, of chocolate into your mouth. Nature takes it from there.
