    I know what happened. Guy got a ticket, just ignored it. Got a warrant issued for failure to respond. Then got pulled over, cops see warrant out so they take him in until he pays.

    Even if you can't pay you have to respond to the ticket.

    I have noticed that many women who are mothers of young children fall into the habit of talking to adults as if they were children. But I hardly ever notice fathers of young children doing that. I wonder what's up with that?

    A lot of people don't care about their car's looks. They care only about whether it meets certain needs and it's at the right price point. I'm generally not one of them but I get it

    The jeep srt is pretty nice in person, especially in black. And I normally hate the way American cars look

    That Cherokee looks like shit, but I really like the way the Grand Cherokee is designed. It's pretty striking.

    I'd drive the SRT GC as a family SUV.

    I wonder which have dumber names on average, jazz fusion songs or restaurants? I think it might be jazz fusion songs, but it is a close call.

    Someone other than me might know of a seminal collection he's done in the past, but I've never seen anything particularly great from him. It's not bad and I would even wear a lot of his menswear, but there's nothing particularly inspired about it from what I've seen.

    I hate to draw this card and I'd welcome being proven wrong, but I think he's a big hero of the gay community, and that's given him a lot of cache.

    If I were looking for a gay fashion hero, Tom Ford would be my first choice, who by most measures seems to be extremely likable in about a million ways. But regarding Jacobs' talent, I don't see much to suggest he's more talented than about a dozen other designers whose shows I look forward to with a lot more interest and admiration. Is it rare of me to find Alexander Wang significantly more talented?

    Well, Jacobs has been around long enough to be considered part of the old guard, so he has a bit of classic appeal as well as that extra bit of cache. Basically, an experienced designer makes a boring collection and it's "understated" and "a return to the basics", while a new designer does that shit and will be criticised.

    I agree that Wang is probably a better designer.

    That said it's probably best to look at some of Jacobs' collections in the 90s to see why he's so revered.

    Why is the talent on X Factor so shitty this season? Are the three singing shows dividing it up or is the real hot shit talent moving to one of the others more exclusively? I can't imagine American Idol or The Voice have shittier talent than this.

    I praise TF for creating the magical fragrance that is Tuscan Leather.

    Srsly. They've got this awful old guy out there giving a rendition of Wilson Pickett more suitable for a talent competition at a Tampa Bay Applebee's.
