Stephen here.

We are currently in Movember (the month formally known as November) And myself and my colleagues at Bluetongue Entertainment (Team name; ‘GAME MO-VER’) are heavily engaged in the stressful task of each growing a Big Moustache for charity.

What is it in aid of I here you ask? Well it’s to raise awareness of the generally shocking state of men’s health. As a rule us men do not take as good care of ourselves as we should, and frequently will sit on a problem for months if not years, shrugging it off out of male bravado.

A few facts.

1: Women are on average likely to live 6 years longer then Men

2: Prostate cancer kills 2700 men yearly in Australia alone. This figure is actually higher than breast cancer in women (2661 deaths in 2004,including 20 males). Yet due to the consciousness raising efforts for breast cancer it is more widely recognised as a problem. It’s time Prostate cancer got the same recognition.

3: Male depression is a chronically poorly diagnosed symptom, mainly due to male bravado and the need to be ‘strong’, yet is affects many men, and they suffer with it when they could be getting the much needed help.

Movember is all about raising the public awareness of these facts and also raising money to help fund research into prostate cancer and also help fund work in battling male depression.

How are we doing this? Simple we are starting clean shaven and growing the best groomed MO we can in the month. 3 days in our team is already up to $190. But we need to raise more. As much as we can, and that is where you good people come in.

I need you to sponsor my MO.

My good friend Mel has already got the ball rolling for me with a sum of $30 but I know with your generosity I know We can push that clean over the $100 mark and beyond (thus earning my ticket to the grand gala at the end of Movember where all eligible MOs will fight it out for the honour of being hailed ‘The Mo of Movember’.

To sponsor me CLICK HERE. And enter your details.

(if that link don’t work go here http://www.movember.com/au/sponsor/ and enter my rego which is 19912)

I have a MO-Log ( a blog for the month of Movember) which you can find HERE follow my progress during this month.

Just remember The research in to Prostate Cancer and Male depression may well benefit you at some point in the future (or someone you know, if you are not in the possession of a Prostate your self!), so please be as generous as you can.

Also pass this message on to all your friends (workmates, employees, random strangers…) urging them to help out. Even if they don’t donate then the consciousness raising you will do in this act is just as important.

I humbly thank you for ANY help you can give in this matter.

Yours, Getting hairier by the minute.

Stephen Rushbrook.

I get spam emails
They read like this
I think about them
When I'm taking a piss
I put them on my Christmas lists
I freestyle in hissy fits
I punch so hard with incredible hulk fists
I drink yoo-hoo and orange sunkist

Ohhhhh!!!!!

Do or do not there is no 'try'
When I choose to do
‘By half’ is not the way
I’ll chat, list, post and blog
Pimp my self and my cause
Till in the end,
‘No more could have been done’
Is what they will say

Yo
Yo yo
Don't complain
pimping your page
I'll cut your hair
you're cause I'll slay
Check my flow, it's the shiz
I rap like I've been back and forth
in the biz

So go drink some OJ and fight bacteria
While my freestyle makes EVC hysteria

Re: Yo

Till thy cash does flow
To save thee from an untimely cancerous foe.

Two Kay and seven zero zero
Die each year, no deviating.
Cause an error in their cells
Don’t stop the replicating.

Money , money, money
Aint just no stupid song
It’s the difference between
life and death my friend
So you just sing along.

I’m in a land down under
And you are over there
But scientific research
For borders it don’t care

Form Russia to Alaska
Not forgetting Fingerinhoe
Results form experimentation
Echo round the globe.

So dig deep in your pockets my friend
Give in large amounts, to this cause beyond your shores
For the life you save this very day
Could well indeed be yours.

New Avatar (yay Photoshop is fun)

And please donate what ever little you can. Every dolour truly will help

Stephen
