For the last 12 years I have gone with the same haircut. Push it forward and up and have a fade from the top to the sides where they buzz it with a number 4 or 6.

I'm fed up with it because everyone and their brother has this hair cut now and not that I am saying anything bad about lesbians, but so do they. So it's time for a change. Right now I have let it grow out enough for a side part but I was wondering what you gents think about different haircuts for men. Also, what manly goop do you put in your hair?

I, also, wear a 2 all over. It's efficient, looks alright, and takes no time to style.
How about the classic Clubman styling gel? Low cost, good reviews, classic scent. One guy said that he bought it for something cheap to hold him over, hasn't looked back for fifteen years. Another said he rides a motorcycle, and it doesn't leave him with "helmet hair". I'm going to pick some up myself and see.
Now I can give you a decent response. It is a decent hair gel and fairly strong. If you use too much, you run the risk of smelling it all day, but at least it has the Clubman scent. I have used it for about a week, and do not regret wearing my cowboy hat for a short period of time. So, I agree with other reviews, that this is decent stuff and not a bad price. Clubman products are available at some of the larger drug store chains, I got mine at Walgreens.
I switched from American Crew to Axe. I hate Axe with a burning passion. But they make a good hair product that's 1/3 the price of AC.
I have troublesome hair, so I cannot do much with it. And that is fine with me. Long looks ridiculous on me, and a conservative ("business") short style works all the time. I can express my individuality in other ways and not waste time preening over dead cells.
Pish posh. Shave yer head.

If you do decide to let it out and part it, one great product that has been out of the limelight for several decades is Brylcreem. It gives your hair holding power while remaining moldable. It works great for me. You could also try Tres Flores Brillantine.
Funny you mention Brylcreem. I just got back from picking up some shaving supplies at CVS and am pretty sure I was just looking at it. Never tried it though might have to make a quick trip back if it's the same thing.
Try growing it out. You'll be able to tell what looks good on you. Sometimes that takes a little experimenting.
For the longest time, I had the unkempt, long "Lion's Mane" cut. I concluded that long hair only looks good if you have a matching beard. In more recent times, I have it short and use hair wax at the front to hold it up in varying positions (parted, all straight up, etc.).
Oh to have these problems ;-)

I have been going bald since the 6th grade. What hair I have left on my head is cut with clippers on the #3 setting about every 2 weeks.

It's funny when you get old. Hair grows non-stop where you don't want it and disappears from your head where you do want it.

I am a proud bald man though. Some of the old dudes at my office have the comb-over. Simply awful. I aspire to be more like Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek TNG) when it comes to my baldness.
Just don't go with the emo/retro 70's/80's shaggy surfer do or a fauxhawk and you'll be okay.

Roasting heaven

For the past month I have been roasting batches of green beans I got from a wholesaler in Washington off of Craig's list.  I have been mixing and matching and came up with what I consider a fine brew.  1/2 Guatemalan for the sweet high notes, 1/4 Ethiopian for the richness and 1/4 Sumatran for the heavy notes all roasted just past the 2nd crack.  Yow, it's good.  I give it away to the relatives for Christmas.  What are you guys roasting?See More
