This may be his best articulation of all things Mustachian I've read to date. Really well done.

I hope he knows they posted his last name... he's been pretty tight-lipped about that in the past.

I thought Vox was one of those "You can't succeed in today's America. The 1% will keep you down" kind of places.  Surprised to see them publishing something like this.

I would guess he approved it. His cover has been blown for awhile now. The MMs have gotten much less private lately--appearing on TV, using their names, etc. MMM posted on Twitter about how the mask would be revealed soon--maybe this is part of what he meant.

Yeah he at least made it easy to find out for a little while, like when he posted his brother's stage name in a blog post (Wax Mannequin I think).  A Google search made it easy enough to find out his last name.

It had been a while since I've read a good ol' "bedpan and catheter" note from MMM. Thanks for sharing!

Nope, just another site that figures out what topic buttons to push to get an audience to click though. MMM's "retred by 30" story fits perfectly.

I thought the same thing.  Nice succinct "intro to the mustache" with just enough clever wordplay to keep you entertained.
Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight

Dynamite article!  Thanks for sharing!
