The Barber gets a shave

Before I came to Milwaukee to sing Barber of Seville, I wanted to get the genuine barber experience, so I went to a fantastic place in downtown St. Paul called Heimie's.  Here's what happened.

For those of you (like myself) who had never had a professional shave before, I highly recommend it.  It was indeed smooth as a baby's bottom, and lasted for several days.  

I shot this using my digital camera, and the memory card ran out of space before he put the straight blade on me- Sorry!  I tried to use the magic of video (and Apple editing software) to tell the story anyway.  Enjoy!



  1. Dude, this is awesome. I work three blocks from there; I'll have to head over for a lunchtime shave someday.

  2. This is BRILLIANT. I really enjoyed it. I mean, I've enjoyed your other posts too, but this was great. And it was good seeing you again too!

  3. Cool video. You built up the suspense to the lather and blade perfectly, but you definitely missed the 'money shot'. I wanted to see the blade in action!

  4. Sweet video :)

    P.S. I'm stealing the phrase, "Catch you on the flip flop"

  5. This is AWESOME!! I played it for my sister, b/c she and I used to love watching "The rabbit of Seville"- I love the editing job too!!

    Did you buy any man-stuff at Hemie's?? It is such a fantastic spot!
