Going to pick up my beloved Panerai today after having it tuned up and being without it for the past 2 months. I like my Timex Ironman as well, but I can't wait to put a real watch back on.
Talking about the Solera? Yeah I like to drink a glass of it, then pour another half glass over some ice cream for dessert, and then drink another glass. Basically a full meal.
Truth. Leone's films just got better. Also, Once Upon a Time in the West is the probably best Western ever filmed. The opening scene alone is better than 90% of all other Westerns in their entirety.
That thing reminds me of the Porsche from Bachelor Party.
Speaking of LED: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/21/technology/personaltech/cheaper-led-bulbs-make-it-easier-to-switch-lights.html?pagewanted=1&_r=0 Ditto on loving dimmers.
A few years back I got on the waiting list of ~10 wineries that were hard to get, and now I'm starting to get allocations on these. The problem is that I'm not drinking quite as much good wine as I thought I would be at this point, and it's hard to justify spending the money to buy from a lot of these places. One of them was Saxum and it was a no brainer for me to go ahead and order because I love their wine. But another was Leonetti (Walla Walla) and I'm not sure...
Must have seen The Toadies 25 times through junior high and high school. They almost made it to the bigtime but not quite - but in DFW they still get regular air play with several songs including this one. Rubberneck is still one of the best rock albums of the 90's though...lots of brooding angry teenager stuff which was great when I was 16.
Had a great dinner on Friday that started out with a bottle of this: And then included two bottles of this: Split between 5 people. It was enjoyable.
If you think QT's other movies are over-the-top violent, then don't see Django. It is far more violent than any of the others.That said, I don't think his films are overly violent. Look at Paul Verhoeven or Sam Pekinpah or David Cronenberg who get way more sadistic and violent than QT. I also think QT will go down as one of the greats in the end. The more recent homage films might be pet projects for him, and certainly aren't as original as Pulp Fiction was when it...
Can't say that I agree with that...are you saying that is is no longer a good writer, or that he was never a good writer?
