This week on Third Eye Weekly, BTR Staff Writer Mary Kate Polanin sits down with Michelle Legro, one of the foremost authorities on historical hunks as an editor for Lapham’s Quarterly and the creator of My Deguerrotype Boyfriend, a Tumblr account celebrating some of history’s most handsome men.
Later, DJ Thompson reports from the campgrounds of this year’s Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, which took place this past weekend in Manchester, Tenn. There, we ran into festival veteran and mustache competition competitor, Kory Kyle. On today’s episode, Kory talks about his career in growing facial hair as well as his business owning an indie music venue in Clarksville, Tenn.
Just how awesome is Kory’s facial hair?

That’s how awesome.
Lastly, today’s spoken word segment features the talents of Nikole Jewell. If you’d like to submit a poem for our consideration to be played/read/performed on the show, send the text of your poem in a Word document format to thirdeyeweekly at gmail dot com. Feel free to send an mp3 of your file but if you do, of course, we’ll have to take the file’s sound quality into consideration. So just be prepared to have one of us read your poem on the air (you know, if we like it) if we can’t tell what you’re saying.
So without further ado…
