Sage Francis and Buck65 are quite incredible, although "artier" than Mike Skinner. Roots Manuva and Yungun are Brits who rap more about birds and booze than guns and all that rubbish. Old school US hip-hop artists like Grandmaster Flash and KRS-One are much more positive and enjoyable too.
Fedora Lounge is one that's got a bit of crossover here. Think there's at least one Indiana Jones clothing related forum too. There's the Red Hat Ladies (or similar), which is a social group for women of a certain age. There's a fairly large Dior Homme fan-group on MSN Groups.
If you're buying a new machine, I'd say go with Vista. Hardware compatibility in new machines is good, it's just older or obscure hardware which can cause trouble. Waiting for a service pack or two to be released is good advice for existing XP machines, or if you have specialist or old software which you absolutely must run. Also, $750 is quite low for the spec you're thinking of, especially for a decent brand. You could get a refurbished system of the spec you're...

I had the "drip" problem a couple of years back and came across the taint pinch and roll business, I seem to remember it being quoted as from the Koran or some other religious text. I guess religion is...
You can call up Visa and ask about initiating a Chargeback on the gym membership. Also, if you have paperwork stating that they have agreed to refund you then you should be able to take them to small claims court (or whatever the US equivalent is) and get a judgement against them.
Mostly because people either don't care about fakes or can't tell the difference. The latter mostly happens with mainstream brands where people are truly purchasing for the name rather than the quality, if it says Burberry/Armani/Prada on it it's good enough for them - and the more logos, the better. Note how many obvious fakes are plastered with logos, even for minimalist brands like Prada, and the bizarre brand mixups (Burberry/LV Nikes) which sell well. Not sure about...
A couple of years ago Chris Cunningham (music video director, did many Aphex Twin/Bjork videos, great DVD of his work available) was cited to be doing this project, then it got tanked for whatever reason. Not sure if it's the same version (I assume someone holds the movie rights for the story), but it doesn't bode well for a film if it spends years bouncing around...

This I think makes it hard for us to understand why people get so riled up about ancient crap. But the rest of the world is the rule, not us. As mentioned before, the US is a very young country and has not really suffered on home soil. The one...
I had this done on a D'Avenza Roma suit I purchased a while ago, wasn't particularly happy with the end result - the newly opened buttonholes don't look clean and the buttons weren't re-attached on the bottom layer of fabric completely straight. Not sure if this is down to shoddy work or that it requires a particularly skilled tailor to do right, but it's not a procedure I'd have done again.

I'm not that concerned because I know that I can print everything out from previous years but I'm wondering if it would work. Yes, transfers are no problem - other posters have covered this though. Definitely worth doing. Quote: Should I / could I upgrade my current Quicken to newer version and is it worth...
