Yes those are quite tasty. I've always been a gin guy and now I've just slowly been building up a nice whiskey shelf. Laphroaig 10, Bowmore 18, Balvenie 12. Nothing too impressive, though I see no rush as this learning process is more of a lifelong journey kind of thing.
Can't wait until I have the proper income to afford the nicer stuff, love sipping on scotch and bourbon and such

French 75s are great, I should start making these at home.
It´s not what I would like to talk about. I was just wondering since it´s pretty much the only thing discussed when music talk starts. I mostly listen to Arctic Monkeys, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, early day Green Day, Radiohead, etc; local bands like "Las pastillas del abuelo", "Babasonicos", some power metal and progressive metal: "Sonata Arctica", "Rhapsody" and "Dream Theater"... and classical music.
I guess rap isn´t big here, nor it was when I was in my teens. Back then it was pretty much Limp Bizkit, Korn, Green Day, The Offspring, Blink 182, Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas, Oasis, Blur.
Oh so you've been into confused bad taste for awhile then
Is Purity Ring Christian rock? I've yet to hear any of their music and I already know its not my thing, but I see their name around a decent amount.
An ironic name. They're this electronic pop duo that uses trap drums and has a very waif-life female vocalist. I like them, but I'm also biased because I'm a sucker for that sound (and they're originally from my city).
Context: Guy I went to high school with is now a club promoter in Vegas. Nice enough guy; one of those people who seems to know and be friendly with everyone around him. His girlfriend is one of those artificially assembled model-types with implants, caked-on makeup, fake tan, fake hair color, etc. He's posted about it legitimately takes her hours to "get ready" if they're going out. Maybe CM would find nothing wrong with the shoe thing, but man, between that and some of the other stuff he posts about her, I'm regularly reminded that these "hot" girls would be way too much of a headache to be seriously involved with.
Their relationship reminds me of that part from Annie Hall where Woody Allen's character sees the happy looking, attractive couple:
Alvy Singer: Here, you look like a very happy couple, um, are you?
Female street stranger: Yeah.
Alvy Singer: Yeah? So, so, how do you account for it?
Female street stranger: Uh, I'm very shallow and empty and I have no ideas and nothing interesting to say.
Male street stranger: And I'm exactly the same way.
Alvy Singer: I see. Wow. That's very interesting. So you've managed to work out something?
There is a difference between a woman with taste an d one who is high maintenance. The tragedy is when you have the second in the absence of the first. Though, tbh, I'm not sure that I could ever have been happy with a woman who doesn't enjoy fashion and food.
Other than the shoes, that CCP fit is pretty amazing. I've actually seen a lot of "wearable" CCP pieces pop up on the marketplaces lately, they mostly just look like really really high grade minimalist tailored wear. I'd certainly fuck around with some of their pants/shirts/jackets if I was a wealthy man
