$100 Shave?

I was with some friend earlier in the night and we drove to Apple Bees by going on the 2nd ring road. Since I was driving I decided to bust out Connie and do some war driving. I didn’t find anything on that road expect RoRo.

I found RoRo on the traffic light between Qadsia and Yarmouk Mansouriya. I didn’t have time to connect to it since the light turned green. Later when we reached the 2nd Ring and Istiqlal Highway I found RoRo again and with a very strong signal. So I connected and found it was a computer to computer connection. It just confused me a signal that strong came was from Qadsia to Dasman. I think it could have been another laptop or even a PDA that was in the car next to me. I am going to be going on that road again later to see if I can find it.

I saw the movie Gacy about the serial killer John Wayne Gacy. This movie is indie and shows it in the filming. I think it was a intentional to make it feel that it was set in the 70s.

Basically the movie gives a different view of Gacy showing his life and the events that led to his capture. The movie wasn’t slow, hospital and not boring it was just eh. It was missing something the actors played their roles very well especially Mark Holton as Gacy. I think the direction and maybe the script needed some work. There was no suspense or anticipation. I really didn’t care either way if he killed anyone else or that he was going to get captured.

I think the movie’s focus was how teenage boys who get beaten by their dad or can’t communicate with their parents either become gay or serial killers. Cause the first scene was a teenage Gacy getting beaten up by his father on a fishing trip,. Then later in the movie you see him having heart to heart talks with teenage boys telling them to talk with their dads and that their parents love them and during these scenes you actually see him some what emotional.

So if you are into serial killers watch it, if you aren’t dont bother its not worth it.

MSNBC have an article
How to get that perfect shave. Telling people the way to shave. It was pretty ok, sickness
nothign new or amsuing, but what got to me is how much people in America pay for a barber shave is from $50-$100. Thats insane!

I myself only shave at the barbers, I dont have a shaving kit at home, (which is why sometimes I have a good growth of hair cause I dont have time to go get a shave) and just pay from 500fils to 1Kd.

I know of other barbers that will give you the full treatment of massage, hair removal from ears and cheak bones and even a facail scrub and all for 5kd.

Americans must have forgotten how to pamper themselves and just allowed themselves to get ripped of when they do.

  1. there are some saloon that do it for 10kd , a guy i know always go there

    i pay 2-3 kd per shave , but i shave once per month or 2 month even :P

  2. That’s incredible! It’s just mad.

    I personally always shave at home. I only shaved at a barbershop on my wedding day :P

    I barely find time to go to the barbershop to get my hair cut. If I had to go to the barbershop everytime I needed to shave I’d be walking around like Robinson Crusoe, and spending most of my time convincing the police I’m not an extremist, lol…

  3. i’ve seen 15$ on a shave, but not 100$.. they must like take you on a fishing trip or give you a lapdance while being shaved for that kind of money..

    and to the 500fils thing..they have this reaaally weird concept here called minimum pay..8 bucks an hour (2 kd/hr); a conservative (very conservative) estimate on the minimum amount of money needed to live healthily. 8$ jobs are dead-end jobs though like subway, mcdonalds, etc..

    the regular work day is 8 hours, anything over that is called overtime (where they double your pay). So 8 bucks an hour at 8 hours a day, 6 days a week, 4 weeks a month comes down to ~1500$; ~384 kd a month. they pay some of that as tax though..barbers and stylists have “careers” so they charge that much..

  4. MMM after a while I do look like extremist at times, my cousin always gives me crap about my facial hair, but it does wonders in the government offices, they think your one of them so It pays off.

    The cost of living in Kuwait is cheap, and no min wage or taxes and these guys do work long hours, but also they get volume mass volume of people come to get shave and haircuts so the lower price allows for more people. Also it costs them nothing. Pair of scissors, some razors, and shaving cream. So every cut only costs the barber around 50fils-100fil max, the rest is all profit.

    The safety razor killed the barber shop, people said screw it and went to get those things instead.

    oh M^3 you should go get a shave again just cause of this post and post on your experience and how much it cost. You may not do it regular but I am sure you’d enjoy it like once a month.

  5. Well, maybe the next time I go for a haircut, I’ll also get a shave.

    I really liked it the first and only time, it was the best shave of my life. It’s just that i’m too lazy to even shave at home, trying to limit it to one shave per week, so imagine if I had to go to a barbershop every time, lol.
