    2019 50 Book Challenge

    Thanks for starting the new one. Subscribed, and hoping to keep up last year's pace again.

    2018 50 Book Challenge

    Happy New Year, all. I would like to have had the chance to comment on these, but barely made it to 70 books under the wire (finishing Anna Karenina and thus completing my rereading goals for the year) before watching Northwestern complete an epic comeback against Utah. Total page count of...

    A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread

    Yup. I've never done it myself, but I've considered it from time to time. https://www.samhober.com/options-for-tie-construction/handsewn-monograms-up-to-2-on-tie-keepers.html

    NFL 2017-18 Thread

    That game was cool and all, but let's not forget that Tom Brady is one yard away from getting 1,000 career rushing yards. He could hit that milestone on Sunday. Seriously, though. That game was one of the craziest things I've seen in my time watching football. Two Super Bowl contenders...

    Great photos, Andy. Looks like you enjoyed the trip to Chicago.

    A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread

    I have a couple of Satin Hober ties. I'd echo the other poster who says they are not incredibly versatile. They're a great choice for the evening when the sheen can really bring an outfit together, but not so much during the day. On the other hand, I love Macclesfield silks and some of his other...

    How many miles did you run today?

    2.5. Felt some abdominal cramping, so just ran at an easy pace for a bit.

    2018 50 Book Challenge

    ^ Thank you, sir. It feels good to not be crawling across the finish line at the last minute this year. I've found the trick is to have just enough semi-light stuff to keep going. Well written biographies and histories can be a lot of fun to read too and tend to go faster than the really dense...

    2018 50 Book Challenge

    64. Davis, Jack - Gulf: The Making of an American Sea - A sort of history of the Gulf of Mexico. There are some interesting characters and anecdotes, but I wasn't particularly blown away by the book. Decent enough prose, though. That one got me to 30,000 pages worth of books, my goal for the...

    How many miles did you run today?

    4 miles after leg day at the gym. Tomorrow is likely going to be a lot of riding the stationary bike while watching college football due to a mix of (1) wanting to watch games and (2) weather being garbage around here.

    How many miles did you run today?

    5 miles today in 45:00; ran a pretty darn fast (for my current running) final 400 meters to get to 9:00 pace just under the wire.

    How many miles did you run today?

    4-something today.

    How many miles did you run today?

    Good stuff. I also think more exercise can be linked to greater quality of life; I say this as a former unfit person. I would accept a couple years off my life expectancy to be able to enjoy being able to get out and do things for much more of said life.

    How many miles did you run today?

    A couple 1.5 milers earlier this week, 3.2 miles yesterday, and 8.75 today (spread over more than one run, getting extra mileage in during halftime).

    The State of Black Tie: Your Observations

    There's a big difference between "unflattering" and "not as optimal when it comes to creating the most flattering possible silhouette." Shawl lapels might be the latter. My first dinner jacket took shawl lapels; my second, when I start attending more black tie events and get around to having it...

    2018 50 Book Challenge

    I've looked into this a bit. You definitely can publish actual paper books as well as e-books via Amazon. I've considered it (of course I need a book first) because most of what I've read suggests that a first-time unknown writer isn't going to get a lot of marketing and other support from the...

    What are you reading?

    ^^Red Notice was a great read. Good stuff. Currently working on a reread of Dostoevsky's The Idiot.
