The 4th Annual Month of Mo'

The Month Long Moustache-Growing Competition Returns

May is the Month of Mo'

Who's got mo' Mo'??? Citizens of Wellington, lock up your razors, and prepare ye for the 4th Annual Month of Mo' Moustache-Growing Competition. This is a 28-day competition that culminates in the Big Moustache Party and Judging Session where moustaches grown during May 2004 will be judged under a variety of genres and criteria. Moustaches grown outside of May 2004 may be accepted, but will be soundly ridiculed as cheaters.

After a failed attempt at Neck-Beard November in 2003, the moustache is back to claim its rightful place upon the top upper lip.

$65 Cash Prize for First Place.

Rex Royale

Ed's Juice Bar

1. Gentlemen's Shave Saturday 1st May 2004.

2. 28 growing days before the judging.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
