Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I was in Boulder up on college hill wandering from frat party to frat party and then I see this house, really big, really nice compared to all the others though with a more subdued atmosphere. People are out on the porch drinking and smoking and they look kind of familiar and so I approach and I realize that it's all dudes from SW&D. Bows or someone calls down "Yo spacepope" and they drag me up the steps and throw me into this kind of subdued SW&D party in this giant east-coast style mansion. Mikey gives me a beer and I wander around in this daze until 4est grabs me and leads me around introducing me to everyone. Met Moo, Teger (the two got along surprisingly well), Casey and Drew who both shone with this surreal and terrifying Hindu-esque holy light and a whole bunch of other people (did shots with a very aggressive AFL?!) until there's this high pitched scream in the other room (the place shifted from opulent mansion to my friend's shithole apartment) and everybody rushes in to find Synthese on the floor, dead. Dream changes from surreal SW&D meetup to surreal SW&D murder-mystery. I declare myself detective and 4est as my assistant and we go around interrogating, checking alibis, etc. 4est was sure either Artishard or Mikey was the culprit, but the more I looked at the body the more I realized it wasn't Synthese at all, it was Zissou stuffed into Synth's clothes. I go around asking if anyone had seen Zissou and everyone said he had left right before they found Synth-Zissou's body.

So the question became why did Synth kill Zissou and steal his identity? Then I woke up

sorry guys

but the untucked shirt+cardigan could look better with some relaxed heavy wool trousers with a break and no crease.

interestingly enough, this was the consensus pretty much in MC about that fit.

some really great fits this weekend, guys. well done.

I've gone back to shampooing every day too, can't deal with oily hair and my scalp gets very itchy if I don't.

Agreed; I tried it for a few months and ultimately just found it too oily to deal with. It just looked bad.

I've posted this over in the sufu hair thread awhile back without anyone addressing it, regarding the no shampoo thing:

Myth#5.: If you shampoo less often, your scalp will gradually produce less oil.

No matter how frequently you shampoo, your scalp produces the same amount of oil, says Jeffrey Benabio, MD, a dermatologist at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego. Cutting back on shampooing will have no effect on your sebaceous glands; genetics and hormones determine the amount of oil they produce. But it will cause dirt and oil to accumulate on your scalp and hair follicles, and could cause inflammation and irritation that might stunt hair growth. All experts agree: How often you wash your hair is a personal decision. Use your judgment. Wash your hair with a moisturizing shampoo when you feel you need it, whether that's daily or weekly.

SDS is basically soap. It can help solubilize grease and suspend dirt on cars so that they can be more easily removed the same way it can solubilize grease on your skin to help remove it. That’s what soap does. In fact, if you consult the almight Wikipedia, you’ll find that SDS is usually made from cocunut or palm kernel oil, just as other forms of soap are made from fatty acids from animals. Normally, Mercola would consider that to be natural, except when he doesn’t. That’s because SDS has a nasty, chemical name, making it more conveniently demonized in front of all those devotees of all “natural” lifestyles. If SDS is an evil, vile chemical, then so is soap.

Think it helps to brush your hair regularly if you don't shampoo it to spread the oil around.

But I've gone back to shampooing ~3 times a week. Scalp gets itchy after 5 days or so.

edit- i think the color might be off on my monitor, because they look like light wash blue jeans, but apparently they're grey. I'm just going to pretend they're blue though.

Cheers - they're definitely grey and slightly darker than the photo suggests - I probably upped the contrast too much. Think the tone of an old galvanised nail.

I saw a fucking ultra-fly japanese dude today wearing the crazy cameraman and he had just gone all-out: super full chunky wool trousers, big-ass boots, looked great. I don't think the jeans are too slim - I would have felt great wearing that jacket with my APCs - but I do think the color is off, and I think beastly wool trousers would look a lot better. throw on some tricker's, too!

Cheers - I will find a fit that works with these jeans! The boots are Trickers btw smile.gif

agree that grey jeans aren't the best. I too thought they were light wash blue jeans, which I think could be cool.

i want to be like conceptual_4est in 10 years and MOK is 15 years.

Wait until you reach 42 then you'll find you want to look like some of the younger guys biggrin.gif

lol how do you transition from 4est to MoK in 5 years.

You know that feeling when you are giving a girl a hug but you're taller than her so your face kind of ends up all in her hair and it's super soft and it smells really good and you're really glad that it doesn't smell like 4 day old hair mixed with sweat and "natural oils"
