Geez  just follow @Synthese Maybe if Spacepope has tumblr, that?  
Are you conceding so early to an evening of abuse and regret?  
Deep fried prawns and hamburger steak?  Sounds like the "working class" surf and turf I grew up with (where men were men, women were men, and children, likewise, men.)  Sign me up.
At least on the CM side, it's sort of an honor to be featured on the Styleforum tumblr.  I know that I've gotten emails thanking me for the mention, and irate emails asking why they weren't featured.  And the featured people follow their own pics and see how many likes they have gotten.  Styleforum has about 8K followers in tumblr, and growing, and is regularly featured on #menswear.  I've never worried too much about repurposing a technology.  I think that that's the way...

Damhorst, K. Miller, and S. Michelman. Published New York: Fairchild.  (and then search forward for the writings that reference the work.  There are other examples, of course.
This is something that I, and many others, have thought and written about, pretty extensively.  Styleforum is a prime example of what the internet enables.   Right now, we have people in Australia, the UK, throughout all of North America, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, France, Belgium, Germany, Brazil, some legitimate users from India and the Philippines, and so on, all constantly and instantly exchanging information, knowledge, opinions.  The growth of "global culture" has...
