Thoughts at the curb: Today’s Cut? What a treat! An invitation! A challenge! Who could resist! Yes, we’ve stumbled upon the unique chance to prove to the world we aren’t afraid to embrace the possibilities of TODAY! Today’s Cut! Carpe diem! La Vida Loca! LETS DO THIS!

Inside: Mourad, pictured above, is the master of time in an invisible but very real parallel universe where, once a person has made the decision to cut their hair, time is suspended, making the day you get your actual haircut Today regardless of the date on the oft cruel Gregorian calendar. Today can be tomorrow. Today can be yesterday. On rare occasion, and only if you’re wise to Mourad’s time manipulation abilities, Today might even be Sunday. In our case Today was both Monday and Tuesday. (Self-identification as Spontaneous Idealists intact!)

1. Walk-ins welcome to find out when to come back

2. What people talked about when they got their hair cut Today, yesterday – rent, death of the printed word, favorite chairs, Pat Kiernan’s sexuality, cheap jazz festivals, James Dean, James Dean’s pompadour, self-esteem in relation to how closely one can resemble James Dean.

3. James Dean, reigning King of Today’s Universe, allows time suspension on the condition that his image alone be worshipped.

4. This is short. This is long. In-between is whatever Mourad says it is. ‘And up’ is whatever Mourad says it.

5. We’re so sick of places not carrying 8FR.


7 Simple ways you too can be a spontaneous idealist:

1. Be creative, lively and open-minded.
2. Make sure your sparkling energy sweeps those boring, non-spontaneous pessimists away.
3. Entertain, entertain, entertain! (Always guarantee fun and variety.)
4. Jump as much as possible.
5. Be a visionary, leave the boring implementation stuff to the bitches.
6. Collect bitches to do your bidding by collecting experiences to lord over them.
7. Never be racist.
