I'm not familiar with that album, but here's a link to the set list, which I think is pretty close to what we got. If you prefer to be surprised, don't click it.

Being a Talking Heads and David Byrne tragic I do have the album some good tunes on it.

I did and they turned out bloody hard boiled.... I'll have to try again.

The GF tried this also and got the same results, although she did confess that she may have been a touch liberal with the timings....

Amateurs, I tell you. I'm not sure what she was doing wrong CHECK, but this is what I've got every time:



I find that adding a hard cheese of your liking makes for a nice touch.

I recently bought 2 MJ Bale suits for $1000. One of those is not actually part of the deal I think - I'm not sure of the name but it's dark blue/navy in colour (size 40R, 34 trousers). Brand new, everything - but I don't want it. Does anyone want to buy it? PM me and I'll send you pics smile.gif

Ice blue shirt for sunny days, white shirt for grey ones?

 

I think.. I have an addiction.. I have 3 suits to pick up from Patrick in the coming weeks... and I still want to order some more stuff

Just pulled the pin on this after giving due consideration to a few other English models which were like an school satchel now I have to wait. Merde! http://www.whippingpost.com/collections/bags/products/the-vintage-messenger

Interesting design compared to most other messenger-type bags; seems to be quite nicely laid out inside. Let us know when you get it and take a few pics of it in action!

I had my second Rockit cut yesterday - they've definitely won a new lifelong customer. Great bunch of people, good cuts, relatively affordable, and they don't just cut your hair but also help teach you how to style it yourself if it's a new style (which mine was). Love the atmosphere too.

I agree with Rob; you can never really have too many white shirts. But there are white shirts and white shirts... The key of course is the texture of the fabric. The beauty of MTM is you don't need to settle for your average poplin weave. For example, I had a white shirt made with a chevron pattern in it. Must have driven the shirtmaker mad trying to match the fabric on the seams... You can also play around with weights etc. so some shirts are better for winter wear, some for summer and so on.

Not that you should only limit yourself to white shirts of course!
