The online sale seems to have gotten worse. The spectator double-monk wingtips, for instance, are about $30 more than they were. The one exception are the "country club" shirts, which are now the same price per shirt if one buys one as they were yesterday if one bought two.
I recently found this gem of a quote from Stereophile's founding editor, thanks to a friend who alerted me to Harman engineer/designer Sean Olive's blog. "Audio as a hobby is dying, largely by its own hand. As far as the real world is concerned, high-end audio lost its credibility during the 1980s, when it flatly refused to submit to the kind of basic honesty controls (double-blind testing, for example) that had legitimized every other serious scientific endeavor since...

Student loan forgiveness generally, matching of graduate assistantships for Americans going into basic research/hard science (the backbone of future growth), science (biotech, "green," physics, etc.), infrastructure repairs, mass transit development/expansion. And figuring out something to do with the parts of the Midwest that have been ravaged by the incompetence of GM and Chrysler. (Give the factories to Toyota, Renault/Nissan, and Honda?)

I saw a few of them at Sky Shoes, and wasn't impressed. So it sounds like the marketplace has spoken.

I'm not sure what "the world of finance and business" has to do with the fact that Band of Outsiders' own label products are of execrable quality, so there would be nothing for them to "decontent" in doing a Gap tie-in.
Quote: Originally Posted by Grayland I like Camel Hair blazers, but don't recall ever seeing one mentioned here. Perhaps this forum is bit too hip.

But it seems likely that, between royalty revenues from Harold & Kumar and Van Wilder, some more serious movies such as the Namesake, as well as being on House and reaping syndication money off of that (great) show, he's in a financially secure and comfortable position. He doesn't...
