You can see the bunching at the shoulders.

 

Disappointing. I wasn't expecting this.

 

I've learned my lesson - make sure the suit fits at the shoulders.

Occasionally I flick across from Housos to Q&A.. About all I watch are Housos, Louie CK, docos on cute fluffy wild animals and big ships. I did notice in advance to catch Tony Windsor on Oz Story - usually Oz story is a PR job on some dodgy millionaire but was almost good with Windsor - I hope he gets to be an election /politic commentator on radio somewhere..

I watch cable for the both the HBO content and as of next year first run BBC content. As for politics on TV fuck it waste of time, I just listen to ABC AM and the 8:45am news that does me for news, given up on ABC 7pm news as all i do is swear at politicians,. Anyone watch Man on Wire the other night? Great story and welcome relief to all the election bullshit.

Thats disappointing dude, that bunching would put me off wearing it.

 

I think from time to time we all think we can save our old stuff.  I pulled out my first tailored suit lastnight and gave it a try on, anyone would think I had it made up in the 80's, so much shoulder padding.  I too was contemplating having the passing removed and a couple of other things but I think best to cut my losses and put the money towards a new one.

Not at all and typical neocon attitude at its best i must add. I am simply fed up that we have to wade through the bullshit that emanates from the mouths of idiot politicians who claim that they have the public interest at heart.

Shoulder alteration is one of the hardest to perform, to do it probably the sleeves have to be taken off and the shoulder seam open up and then tailor then should do a fitting for you.
As you already know it's a very costly exercises and I woulds only go to the best bespoke tailor to have it done.

I always feel sorry for the Labor politicians - apart from the obligatory Tory, they'll be surrounded by a News Corp analyst who refers to the Coalition as 'we', a member of Amnesty International or the Greens and a comedian who sometimes takes pity on them.

I actually plan on going in the holidays, DR. I was going to ask a question about where Australia is going after primary resources but I can run one on RMWs if you like.

Foxhound can come with me - we can wear Morbid Angel shirts and camo.

Labor politicians get rousing applause each week on Q&A for consistently inane, overly emotive comments that ruin any chance for meaningful discourse about policy, economics or ideology. You feel sorry for a Labor politician on a show which has a dominantly young, progressive leaning audience (both live and televised)?

 

The stats shown each week on Q&A with the Labor/Liberal split in the audience are a farce. I have countless progressive-minded friends who know that their best chance to pass the ballot for the live audience is to say they vote Liberal, which is what they say every time. 

 

Having said this, the non-standard studio audience last night in Melbourne was filled with an equal split of Liberal and Labor hardline, unwavering automatons.

That was incredible. It's rare that an athlete is called an artist and it's actually true rather than bullshit hyperbole. You could see that over 30 years on, the people involved were still emotional about the event.

 

The subject is also covered (equally well) in the Ken Burns New York Documentary series. The film charts the rise and fall of the WTC, presenting Petit's walk as the zenith in the life of an otherwise quite ugly building (the nadir being, well... you know). Interestingly, though I remember 9/11 very clearly, it was not until I saw that documentary that I understood the symbolic power and impact of that event, as much a horrifying work of art as a pivotal moment in history.

If you are in to fiction, Colum McCann incorporates these events in his novel Let The Great World Spin.
