Breaking Bad never really knew what it wanted to be. It didn't know if it was a Western or a Dark Comedy or a Drama or an Action show. I would put that on Vince Gilligan and maybe the directors as well. Personally, I really enjoyed Breaking Bad. But I certainly don't think of Mad Men as secondary to it. Someone indicated earlier that Breaking Bad was entertainment. And I agree. I think that Mad Men can veer more into art territory as Matthew Weiner tends to have a pretty...
If they truly are using the cross as a literary device, then I would think that they will make Don out to be a Christ figure. Just some things I was thinking of off the top of my head: Don loves trying to save people, even at his own expense. In particular, he is kind to "whores." Like Jesus, Don has this time in his life where we aren't really sure what happened to him. There are big gaps in his story. Don is often viewed as a miracle worker (at work, at...
I picked up a pair of Boggi Milano chinos when I was in Europe a few weeks ago for business. Very slim fit, similar to Incotex's slim fit, although hemmed unlike Incotex. Anyway, a decent value at around $80. Idk if they have a webstore.
SQ5 is pretty awesome. Lot of bang for your buck there when comparing to the other higher end SUVs.Macan drives better, but Porsches that are well optioned can really cost you an arm and a leg.Agreed. The Mas is hideous.

10 fold is probably a conservative estimate. It has ~350 million viewers a week. My only point is that there is no way she would get that kind of exposure elsewhere. Personally I don't care what she does or doesn't do with the exposure, but it does have value and it's probably worth trading a slight insult for.I agree that Clarkson is a human dildo. My only point being that I don't think Sabine can be too offended in that I thought she was 1.) portrayed in a very positive...
Not defending Clarkson in any way here, but I will say that I think Sabine got way more exposure via Top Gear than she would have gotten anywhere else. Probably increased her fame / brand 10 fold if not more.
I went to Diehl & Diehl on the rec of a number of threads in this forum. Really nice store. Picked up a few things on sale (end of the sale season here). Hahner an der Oper (aka Willi Hahner) was also pretty nice http://www.yelp.com/biz/hahner-an-der-oper-j%C3%BCrgen-hahner-frankfurt-am-main These places had nice accessories like Magli umbrellas, fancy socks. Diehl & Diehl had an incredible shoe selection. As you walk along Zeil, there are a lot of stores as well,...
Currently in Frankfurt for work and I am astounded at how many people drive relatively nice cars on steelies here. I have also seen a few SLS AMG's, RS4 and RS6 Avants, and 911s just parked on the street. Given the number of bankers in this town, I am surprised at the paucity of Range Rovers.
On the topic of new car buying, has anyone used TrueCar? I downloaded the app the other day since my wife is starting to look at SUVs and wants to buy by the summer. I am a trader and have seen the stock and options pretty heavily traded as of late (they just released earnings this past week) so it got me reading about it. So, I have only heard about things from the financial side. Was wondering if people ever had used it to buy a new car / lock in a good price? It seems...
