Hells no man, I drive around until the song is over and the next one starts...which usually means sitting in the driveway listening to THAT one. I'm also not the kind of person that has to stop what I'm doing to appreciate beauty (or lack there of...or whatever). I...

Certainly not everyone likes classical music, but there have to have been more than the very few people who actually stopped who, if they'd been paying attention, would have realized at *least* that they were hearing a very, very good musician. But they weren't paying attention, they were singlemindedly focused on getting to work. I...
Haven't seen a pair of 5EPs...but last time I was in the city I stopped by AB Fits and tried on a pair of RB11s and RB6s (don't remember what denim though)...both in 30 x 32. The RB11s seemed to fit ok, a little tight in the thigh actually, at least from what I'm use to wearing. The RB6s were almost impossible to get on. I don't even think I could button them...so maybe I had a funky pair or something. I like the idea of both of those brands, but haven't made that leap...

I've loved Nine Inch Nails since I was a teen, but I'm not gonna rate Trent Reznor on the same scale as Tchaikovsky. NiN is great music that servers a particular purpose for me, but I wouldn't call it beautiful in the same sense as I refer to Rach 3 or the Intermezzo...

Can we all agree that beauty is a subjective thing? If so...don't get in a tiff if I keep walking. What else is subjective? Calling something a masterpiece? I'd say so. The author is implying, or rather, flat out saying that because people didn't stop to listen or even drop some money into his case in appreciation, that we as a society have someone been diminshed by our day to day rush. How well...stupid. I'm guessing the author has no idea how the people passing by could...

I kinda don't know what the hell I'm talking about...but...I tried on a pair of Adam Derrick To Boot's that looked somewhat similar in shape, but in brown, at Nordstroms last week. I think it was the "Hugh" model...didn't think they were worth the $395, but they looked kind of nice.

I'm somewhat shocked...never thought I'd find such like minded folks on a style forum. Nifty!
