I live in DC, so the Oxford, tie, and khaki look is perennially in. I haven't worn it since the late-80s in my early twenties, but it has its place. I like buttoning just the top button of a three-button jacket, but it is depends on the placement of the waist button (I have a shorter torso) and is a personal preference, not the norm.

On every level Prince was/is completely overrated. Can I get a witness? I'd have to disagree with you. As a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and performer how many people can hold a candle to him? There are better singers, but he far out classes the majority of those cited here....
I've got like 5,000 songs on my iPod, not including podcasts of new music from Audiofile and Better Propoganda. A few themes emerge upon closer inspection: 90s hip hop 90s alternative soul (I classify this broadly: from Erykah Badu to Ben Harper) Late 90s-00s ambient music (St. Germain, Labwaste, Rysoop) Zepplin-inspired rock (Audioslave, Queens of the Stone Age, Living Coulor, and of course Led Zepplin) Alternative (TV on the Radio, Handsome Boy...

So, no one has the balls to say Bono of U2? Good band, 3 seminal albums, huge heart, grossly overrated.
My quick list of Unconventional Beauties: Ellen Barkin Grace Jones (In a scary sort of way) Sara Ramirez (Grey's Anatomy) Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth)

I've never found Uma Thurman all that attractive. Her head and hands are disproportionate to her body, and there's something odd about her face. I also have no idea why Lindsay Lohan has a career in entertainment. Just because I had a huge crush on Kate in middle school after the...

And I liked her more when she weighed over 115 lbs, but I'm funny that way. This may be...
BigBadBuff suggested the place I would direct you to: Black Salt in the Pallisades. Also in that neighborhood is Makoto -- great Japanese tasting menu, intimate space. Went there with the wife for our anniversary. Up Wisconsin Avenue a bit is Cafe Divan -- ok food, questionable service, but a great use of an odd triangluar space and street views of the neighborhood. There's the restaurant at the Ritz-Carleton on Church Street (between Wisc. Ave and 31st Street....
