I actually got an "A" for this answer.

Occam's Shaver.

I once did a TV commercial for an electric shaver. The funniest thing was that we all had to shave with a blade to get clean shaven enough for the 'after' shots.

Due to a skin condition, I actually shave with an electric balding clipper used for your head. It gets it pretty close, but not like either an electric shave or a blade. I've always thought of it as my attempt for the most well trimmed Orthodox beard out there - not clean shaven, but not really a beard either, the via media of Orthodox asceticism. :)

Orr, I've thought of posting pictures of all the permutations of facial hair I've had in the last 20 years. It wasn't until I was almost 40 that I could actually grow one (the Chinese thin stringy look didn't go over well in my Protestant church). If I didn't have the freedom of being a construction dude I'd do the close cropped via media too (my wife would actually like that better). My daughter's boyfriends like the ZZ Top look and it intimidates them. I may shave it when she moves out. :)

I thought you were just going for the ruggedly handsome look Christopher. Very popular at the time you were working.

When I saw your picture I thought, someone that good looking must be up to no good. :)

David, I'm living proof you don't have to be good looking to be up to no good.

Unfortunately, you were right in your initial impression. No good at all, then or now.

orrologion: That's funny. Reminds me of a friend of mine who did an ad for a cosmetics company years ago. The ad featured an extreme close-up of her eyes. The make-up artists did not use the brand being advertised on her eyes for that shot. "We're not gonna use that junk! It's worthless."

Steve, I must admit, you are the one person on the planet that is a smaller demographic than I am.

And Christopher, Cooper Hargrove must die! Well, all the 90210 characters must die, so it's nothing personal.

David, LOL! When I told my catechism class that the Church Fathers teach I am a unique, unrepeatable event my priest said, Thank God! :)
