  1. You wrote, El Rubio, that this is the best style for playing football. Apparently, Bryan Braman, the Pittsburgh Steeler from Spokane (a half hour drive from my town, Coeur d’Alene), took your advice during the Super Bowl. I rooted for Bryan and the Steelers, and they won.

      Yea, we just got that cleared up. It will be back online here soon.

  3. Yo Longhairs!

    Thanks for the tutorial on this simple braid. I am happy to announce that I have successfully tied my first self-braid today. The two biggest problems I faced when braiding my hair was first, producing three good even sections of hair, and second, keeping those strands separate from one another. With further practice I know I will be able to improve my ability to braid.


  4. When I braid my hair, I sometimes finish it off at the bottom with a crisp touch w/o all the remaining hairs just dangling around at the end of the hair tie. To do this, I do a normal braid and as a finish I take the leftover tails and tuck them against the main braid. Place your hairband like normal but go around the bottom of the braid with the tuck against it. It will give the hair a nice finish.

    Longhair and prosper!

      Equus good to hear from ya man. Yea getting to the bottom is tough, thanks for the tips. Helpful.

  5. Maximum braidage! Your hair’s thick like wharf rope. My hair isn’t long enough to try it. But I’m afraid it’s too thin, too. When I do it I’ll send you a pick.

  6. Solid! Nice guns man. I like the combo of the top angle and straight on for multiple vantage points for this complex operation.
    Letting it ride,
