I like hip hop, but it tends to be older stuff, The Roots, Talib Kwali etc etc (their older albums). I generally abhor aussie hip hop mainly because there is bugger all that has any decent production quality, sampling etc. My wife always gives me shit about how I rant on about how the Hilltop Hoods have become so popular with such bad production, lyrics and rapping. My brother terms this genre Yob-hop. Though, I have a soft spot for an older Aussie hip-hop/electronic band called the Resin Dogs. Not even sure if they are still together.

I'm a child of the 90's too, and being half English by blood my tastes reflect that. I'm a huge Oasis & Verve/Richard Ashcroft fan, but I like a lot of the other brit pop of that era i.e Suede/Travis etc. Also a big fan of the older Manchester stalwarts like New Order, Joy Division etc. Anything I can sing along to in the car is good.

Favourite album at present, which I listen to over and over while running is Girl Talk, Feed the Animals.

We're meeting outside Tio's at 6.30pm.

Any updates from the rest?
I can't make it this week due to a prior engagement, but maybe next time.

All this talk of rap....you must all live dark lives. What about a bit of the old Ludwig Van? 9th, second movement is my preference.

 

When in the company of a newly acquainted devotchka, I prefer the classics, like Singing in the Rain.

tobias - wot all the others said - its a hybrid that gets the worst of both worlds.

Spread/white = formal/bus - BD = ivy bus/smart cas to casual. Might just work with a big bold check as mentioned but why bother. It looks like a Luxire? - if so they can do a nice OCBD with any height collar you want. White isn't the first - or second or third choice or.... for an open necked casual shirt in my book. If its white casual it needs to be a thick cloth or interesting texture and button down or long floppy not spread points or linen (not see through white linen)

Are you sure you have a "big head" or do you just think that?
Get an objective opinion somewhere - probably not here!
Short hair makes a big head look worse contrary to what many think.

Yeah I used to have a lot of those shirts but gave them away years ago - at least partly because my assessment was the same as yours; too many self styled "alpha" males, schoolyard bullies in middle management and ignoramuses who thought they were edgy and sticking it to the man were wearing them as the "signature" shirt.

Yes - ties a must - white contrast collars work best with a 3 piece or 3 button where only a tiny bit of the rich stripe is showing. Great for pink stripes as it puts white against the face where pink can sometimes be the wrong colour for skin tone. Nothing worse than a white contrast collar, ultra spread, open necked striped shirt with fancy "dress" jeans.

Just because someone appreciates rap doesn't mean they don't appreciate classic.. Thats why i describe myself as liking modern music but appreciating classic, because those who describe themselves the other way round are often narrow minded, self righteous bigots..

Not naming names..
