Hello again, B&Bers!

Dune 2 is coming out this week in Canada and other locales (USA release March 1st). Many people are excited to see the second instalment of the series, so let’s do a SciFi theme this week. Dune or anything SciFi!

For this Week’s SOTD Theme Week, let’s see Dune or SciFi items or any shaving gear that is space age looking, futuristic or looks kinda out there. Post your Techmatics, Merkur Futurs and other cutting edge or futuristic looking shaving gear. Incorporating Dune or SciFi themed items in your pic is also another way to participate. Have a moon rock or a Lego Mars Rover instead? Perfect!

This Weekly Theme is one I always look forward to as I love seeing unique and futuristic shaving related items… and I am a space nerd. Even your PAA soaps and splashes with their goofy alien logo works for this week’s theme. Muglar Alien cologne fits. Noble Otter Orbit? You betcha. Have some of that gross freeze dried astronaut food lying around? Let’s see it! If you don’t have anything themed, post pics of your usual SOTD or just tell us about it.

As always, being creative and having fun IS mandatory but sticking with the theme is NOT mandatory but very strongly encouraged.

Let’s see your Dune/SciFi themed items and futuristic looking shaving gear!



Head Cheese Head Chef
-He who controls the spice controls the universe.

-I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

-We are House Atreides. There is no call we do not answer. There is no faith that we betray.

Menthol Monday SOTD

Razor: Schick Type F
Blade: Gem PTFE SS (D1)
Brush: Oscar11 24mm Black Wolf
Bowl: Olivewood 5"
Pre-Shave Scrub: PAA Ice Cube 2
Pre-Shave Balm: GroomingDept Eucalyptus & Spearmint

Razor: Fatip Piccolo
Blade: Gillette 7o'clock Super Platinum (4th use)
Brush: Omega 48

Aftershave: Euro Brut

Ok shave, comfortable but not the closest, I feel a slightly sharper blade (BIC) works better in the Fatip, and I might keep my Super Platinums for my Tech. I didn't get around to using this combo during last weeks theme (European), but I thought I'd do it anyway.

Statting the new week with a different razor. Today’s razor is a slant: ATT S-1. Once again, I am using a Wizamet blade. I can use almost any blade in this razor and get a nice BBS shave. The shaving brush today is a Frank Shaving Synthetic. To load sufficient soap with this brush I wet the puck but keep the brush just damp. The Williams soap is on its 74th use. A perfect shave. Hope you all have great day and week.

My favorite SOTD Theme! I am on the road at the moment. (What else is new!) And I dont have any Dune related stuff with me. But behold! I do have a cool little sample tub of PAA Mega Flora! What a great soap and scent this is! it is firmly in the fourgere camp. But with a bit of a twist. The top notes are a mix of a woodsy forest scent, with a good kick of citrus layered in. Its great. And the PAA bases are high on my list.

Space themed? You bet. The Mega Flora label shows a dude in a space suit trying to enter a derelict ship that has been overgrown by vegetation.
