Inxs Star Kirk Pengilly Has Shaved Off His Trademark Moustache To Raise Money For Charity.
The rocker spent much of this year (15) battling prostate cancer after he was diagnosed with the disease in February (15), and he is now recovering well.
He decided to take part in the Movember charity drive, which encourages men to grow facial hair to raise money for cancer causes throughout November (15), but he reversed the scheme by shaving off his iconic face fuzz.
"I had a prostate cancer diagnosis in February, and lucky for me I got to it early so it was just a matter of removing the prostate," he says. "This is all about getting the message out about men's health."

Inxs Guitarist Kirk Pengilly Has Won A Legal Dispute With His Neighbour Over An Extension On His Luxury Home.
The veteran rocker and his wife, surfing champion Layne Beachley, planned to develop their beachfront property in Victoria, Australia, but their proposition was challenged by disgruntled neighbour Wendy Goyer, who insisted the extension would block her view.
The couple, which bought the home in 2007 for $2 million (£1.3 million), were granted planning permission from Warringah council in 2013 to extend the home despite an assessment pointing out Goyer's view would be "destroyed."
Goyer brought the case in front of the Land and Environment Court of New South Wales, and on Wednesday (08Apr15), Justice Rachel Pepper dismissed the case, ruling the views from Goyer's home are not "iconic" enough to be saved.

Writer-director Dana Brown clearly had a blast burning through the film's travel budget. From Hawaii to Vietnam to Easter Island, his crew captures some gorgeous footage of surfers at play (or at work, depending on how you look at it). Regardless of where he travels, surfers world-wide all share a childlike wonder at how much fun they get to have in the water. Off the coast of Galveston, Texas, Brown follows a group who find pleasure in surfing on the wakes of the massive supertankers that pass through; in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, he discovers a group of decidedly un-buff men cruising the modest tides of Lake Michigan, offering surfer-dude talk in Midwestern accents.

Obviously inspired by the crush of skateboarding-as-rising-sport movies like Dogtown and Z-Boys and Stoked, Billabong Odyssey ostensibly follows a surfing competition in which the winner is crowned by surfing on the biggest wave in the world (this turns out to be about 70 feet high, which the breathtaking opening sequence presents in all-too-dramatic size). That's all well and good, but Billabong falls into the deadly trap of being more about its subjects than about the sport. I don't know Brad Gerlach from Mike Parsons, but if you're the kind of person who does, you might find something interesting in their life history and entree into the sport of surfing.
