Attus Hesher t-shirtAttus Sid t-shirt

Suppose you’re heading to a rock concert, but you just can’t bear the thought of wearing a collarless shirt. Attus Apparel might have just the solution. They make semi-destroyed polo shirts with thrash-worthy logos, such as a long-haired metalhead and a mohawked homage to Sid Vicious. For the truly extreme, you can even purchase the polos once they’ve been blasted with a shotgun, which gives them a deconstructed look reminiscent of these shoes.

Sam Elliott with yellow-gray hair

Izzy thinks there’s nothing objectionable about going gray.  But yellow-gray is a color he finds hard to stomach.  While it’s great to have a full head of hair at any age, sometimes, as in the case of Sam Elliott, less would have been more.

superjew t-shirt

Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah, a celebration that lacks anything like a Santa Claus. Dissatisfied with the introduction of Hanukkah Harry, Izzy instead suggests associating the holiday with Superjew, from the Planet Kvetchton. Up, up, and oy vey!

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes with bangsJavier Barderm in No Country for Old Men

While Tom Cruise’s and Katie Holmes’s matching helmet-hairdos are frightening in themselves, their similarity to that of the homicidal psychopath in No Country for Old Men is truly hair-flattening. Izzy has read that the Coen brothers based Javier Bardem’s Prince Valiant hairstyle off of a 1979 photo of a brothel patron. Surely it’s no accident that it gives his character the silhouette of the Grim Reaper.
