We’re super excited for the new book, Caffeinated – How our daily habit helps, hurts and hooks us by author Murray Carpenter.

From The NY Times:

“With just enough caffeine in the system, the body’s organs become a little more themselves: the brain a little brainier, the muscles a little springier, the blood vessels a little tighter, the digestion a little more efficient…It takes only about 30 milligrams of caffeine (less than a cup of coffee or can of cola) for stimulative effects to be noticeable.”

Now if only someone would put this stuff in shaving products!

Being a great father is like shaving.
No matter how good you shaved today,
you have to do it again tomorrow.

– Reed Markham, American educator

Going way back in the interweb machine here to find this great write-up from…

Who knew what a good stain-remover shaving cream apparently is?
This year, when Messy Marvin drops that meatball on the carpet at your upcoming holiday party, you can play it cool.

This is cool.

Last week, Walgreens opened up what’s believed to be our nation’s first net zero energy retail store – meaning it’s anticipated to contribute more energy to the grid than it consumes. It sports two wind turbines, nearly 850 solar panels and a geothermal system burrowed 550 feet into the ground. The grand opening was November 21st.

Full Walgreens press release:

Movember is over. Presumably successful in its efforts to raise awareness for prostate cancer and definitely successful in reminding us that only a small percentage of men can really pull off the mustache-look. Ouch.

And as we close one chapter in shaving history, it is time to open another in the form of true shaving innovation. Shaving cream with a kick? An aftershave that arouses? Pacific Shaving Company has you covered. More to follow in the coming days and weeks…

PS: Looking for some great holiday stocking stuffers? Head on over to Pacific Shaving Company. We’ve got a great holiday sale going on right now. Check it out!

Random Stranger Shaving Your Head On The Street?

I hope I’d react as well as these ‘victims’. Pretty funny. May need to download this app and give it a try…


Jill Foster at The Daily Mail UK just posted this fantastic article on men who shave their legs.

My favorite part:
‘I was in bed with a girl and she wouldn’t get close to me,’ he recalls. ‘When I asked why, she said it was because she hadn’t shaved her legs and the fact mine were smoother than hers made her feel insecure.’

All I know is that this summer I went for my first ever buzz-cut at the barber. It took one day to get used to feeling the breeze on my scalp every time I walked outside, but in no time, I grew to love it. I know there is a huge difference between a buzz-cut and shaved head  – and even even bigger difference between a shaved head and shaved legs, but still. Maybe these guys are on to something.

It just goes to show – you can’t rush the act of shaving.

I gave myself a really nasty shaving cut this morning while trying to do a speed shave. Ouch. However, it gave me an opportunity to actually demonstrate just how well the Nick Stick works! The lengths I’ll go to prove the efficacy of Pacific Shaving products…
