Kade Dworkin missed his calling. He should have been a TV or radio show host.
A few days ago, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Kade for his “meet my followers” series of podcasts in which he gets to know… well, some of his followers on Twitter. The premise is basically this: 140 characters at a time is not the best way to get to know someone. Talking to them live is still a more effective mode of communications.
Not a bad way to get some background info and trivia on me, what I do, and how I do it.
Background notes: We had to stop the interview for a few seconds due to a parrot brawl outside my office. Yes, parrots. Screeching. (True story.)
Click on the above image or here to listen to the interview. Oh, and I may have mentioned a few of you during the interview. Ahem.

One final note about my new Twitter avatar (see below): That’s not a moustache I’m sporting in that photo. It is just a day’s worth of stubble. The stache is more or less an optical illusion.
Now, to illustrate, this is a stache:
See the difference?
So, in closing… Tom Selleck: Moustache. Olivier Blanchard: No moustache.
Update: In case you want to play, below is the complete field guide to typestaches, courtesy of @iPrash and @surekhapillai.
I was going to ask what Clark Gable was doing in your avatar. Thanks for clearing things up.
Not you too! Argh…
LOL!!!! Go Kat!
I completely disagree. Yours is AKIN in both spirit and direction of growth, as Mr. Selleck’s here. I have blown the avatar up large. I am quite convinced, and evidence on Twitter this morning (alarm, panic and complaints about too heavy facial hairs) back me up!
If I could indeed grow a Selleck stache, trust me, I would. If only to torture my mother.
I’ve tried. I can’t grow one. It takes months to grow half a centimeter. I swear, the stache is an optical illusion. A trick of the light in that photo.
I’d have to say the brow wrinkles are more like Tom Selleck’s than the facial hair – just not enough of it!
Then take another photo right now, of your appropriate lip chapeau.
As I said on Twitter, thank you for coming on so early in the show. It means a lot to me that you would take the time.
I am ridiculously humbled that you would put this out into your blog feed.
As for me missing my calling, I’m still young…only 26 years old. Definitely trying to find a way to take advantage of my interest in this space now. I guess I take after my uncle who was a DJ in Miami for years and years.
Thanks again, and if there’s anything I can do to help you or your projects give me a shout.
Thanks a bunch for picking me. The pleasure was all mine. 🙂
I like the new photo!
First of all, the facial hair is working for you…I won’t debate where on the stache-o-meter it falls.
To add to your update and in the spirit of thoroughness I thought I’d share another great infographic I came across a while back:
I love it. 😀
The infographic or the facial hair?
Magnum P.I. is not amused. 😛
Higgins had a moustache too.
I am so growing my mustache now to see if i look more handsome than the brandbuilder. lol
I really don’t follow your stuff for any insights into Social Media, Frenchdom in general, or much else.
I come for the facial hair discussions.
That is all.
I knew that.
