I'd add the following: Burberry DB trench Alden 405's JM Weston 180's JL...
Thought you guys might like pics of the new subs, the Bella from a Monster Cable division called M-Design. I snapped 'em with my phone so they're tiny, but serviceable. Sub #1, on the wall next to my left speaker. The wall angles away at the end of the cabinet, into a hallway. Same sub, no grille. It looks better with the grille. Note the signature pointy dustcap on the driver. I will be plugging that port, because I'm more concerned about using these to smooth...
Quote: Originally Posted by Magician It is an objective fact that portions of the quor'an are verbatim (or with small changes) lifted from earlier religious texts - the significance of this fact is debatable. Still I don't see this topic ending well..... That could cut either way. If you believe Islam is kind of like "Religion v. 3.0", then it would make sense that it kept some "code," as it were, from v. 1.0 and v. 2.0. Likewise, if you...

I'm scratching my head a bit at the Redskins picking up Shaun Alexander instead of looking for all of the secondary help they can find. Even with Betts out, Portis is gobbling up yards like they insulted his sister, and Rock Cartwright is a perfectly capable backup. Of course, I'll be...
I bought one at Knize in Vienna a few years ago.

Comments like the above make educated people look down on Republicans.

Found on ebay. Can't find a picture, but when I was a kid I was in love with the Evans Series-1. Met the designer at an auto show as a sixth grader. The car was basically a Kudzu IMSA racer with a fiberglass body and a small...
Quote: Originally Posted by Kai Whether they are superior to a Viper I suppose depends on personal preferences. I've been corrupted by the Viper's raw power, and would have a hard time giving that up, particularly because I love to spend time at the track. For a second car, however, I'd be hard put to find something better than a Miata. It would be great for canyon cruising here in Colorado on a sunny fall day. Fair enough. The most...
I picked it up yesterday. Except for the spread about "American" designers, which was a complete bust - not because the spread was bad, but because the clothes featured in it were inelegant, intellectually bankrupt, and utterly incongruous with the rest of the book - I liked it. Sure, the Napoli piece was a hackneyed soft advertisement, but one has to expect that kind of thing in a modern print magazine. And I assume the PR reps foisted that Paul Smith notch lapel tux on...
