    socal- nice trip down memory lane. I actually found that while trying to find thom browne dress shirts. Some guy on sufu mentioned to me that he found them for only $150. I didn't believe him and searched but he later told me he meant black fleece [​IMG]

    Black fleece shirts do not compare to TB eponymous label. Something about the way the BF shirts are cut ... it looks very square and stuffy. The TB shirts are much more stylish.

    None.

    Really? Where did you get that recipe that calls for cumin?

    Cumin would leave a lingering taste that I would think would be reserved for garlic in guacamole.

    WHY is Naomi Watts, who is one of my most favorite actresses ever, wearing pasties??!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    I'm so glad I didn't marry a blond. They age too quickly.

    Is that vain, yes. Would I be happy with a wife who is blond? Who looks like Naomi Watts? Hell yes.

    Oh, good. Do you toast the cumin? Even if what you have is already ground, you can throw it into a cold skillet and heat it over a fire while tossing it - it makes a big difference in flavor.

    Also, I suspect cumin is one of those things that mellows out after you would put it into a dish such as guac. If you're serving it right away, use less. If you're serving it later, you can use a little bit more.

    I agree. I ain't buying no dressed up BB. I remember being angry that i slept through an auction for a thom browne shirt in my size on ebay. I don't think a bit of cumin would overpower something like guacamole. It'll just add a bit more soutwestern smokey flavor.

    I think both Thom Browne and Black Fleece oxfords serve their purposes each in their own right.

    I guess the reason why I wouldn't consider it is because the dishes I usually serve guacamole with are already laced with cumin, so my opinion has that particular bias. Now that I'm thinking about it, I might give it a shot myself!

    They probably do. I didn't know much about black fleece and those guest designer diffusion things make me nervous sometimes. Also, i'm a skinny ma'fucker and i'm guessing that a thom browne shirt would require less tailoring for me. It's a dead issue really, as unless i get really lucky, i can't afford it anyways. Horns- That's understandable. I was thinking of just a side of guac served with chips or something. I can see how a heavily cumined guac with a cumin dish might be overkill.

    I just got back from the National Gallery of Art and they had this beautiful (although a bit small) collection of Afghani art and jewelry. I always feel this sense of all consuming reverence when I'm in near things that date as far back as 2200 BCE.

    Hmm...wasn't that year the last time you had sex? I bet you're feeling plenty of reverence about that.

    It was, and you're the reason I gave it up.

    Are most people who self-identify as audiophiles really dumb?

    I have really gotten into cooking duck breasts. They're the tastiest things in the world and soooo easy to cook.

    Dumb, witless, thickheaded, tiresome, dense...The empirical evidence seems overwhelming.

    That said, I don't think I have words to describe those audiophiles who also belong to BMW fanclubs that meet in suburban Starbucks to cruise around in their freshly shined douchemobiles.

    We're talking about audiophiles, people who appreciate high quality sound equipment..correct? Because I used to be pretty into audopphile type equipment and nobody I knew could afford a BMW after the thousands they spent on home stereo equipment, amps, and DJ headphones.

    Please post your method.

    I have one which gets pretty crispy skin and renders alot of the fat, but always looking for new ways
