    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Superfudge - agree with every word of your American Psycho book review except for "shitheap". It's confronting, hilarious, totally original, and brilliant. This was the first of a trilogy (including Glamarama and Lunar Park) in which Ellis really hit his career peak.

    The movie nearly made it over the line (and Bale is fabulous), but ultimately is played a little too hard for laughs, at the expense of the book's profound darkness.

    Regarding running shoes, I've been on Vibram 5-fingers for a couple of years and love them, even on hard pavement. But they really force one to use a different - dare I say it, "more correct" style. I find now that even in "normal" running shoes, I take the impact with the balls of my feet rather than my heels. I think it's a great way to run and the entire theory behind it makes perfect sense to me.

    Hmm I think investment might be stretching it a bit, unless you are a short / mid distance track runner. Once you start doing long / endurance distance on roads, you will be wearing your shoes out six months at a time... assuming you mean serious running shoes for serious runners.. I think we are saying the same thing though.. don't buy expensive runners! Buy 'good' runners, for your feet / running style. I used to buy the same model in bulk once I find a good one.

    Quote: It is a bit of a fad isn't it, although I like to think of it as a developing niche, there are definite advantages depending on the runner. I do lunch time runs at the Botanical Gardens and rarely see people wearing the 5 fingers. [FONT=Helvetica, Arial, clean, sans-serif]I've had 2 pairs for four years but was only an occasional user until recently - it is very good for the joints, but takes ALOT of getting used to. Man I I'm such a shoe addict.[/FONT]

    I have a love/hate relationship with that book. I get what it's trying to do and I respect the author for doing it, I just feel that the joke is often at the reader's expense. There's vast barren tracts of literary wasteland between the funny parts and the funniest one didn't even make it into the film. I guess getting Tom Cruise to cameo would have been too much, but hey, they could have used Miles Fisher!

    For Brett Easton Ellis movie adaptations, The Rules of Attraction hits the mark better than most.

    Switching to running on the balls of my feet solved shin splints and feels like I get way better power transfer, although I find that with my casual approach to running frequently I'm now getting really sore points on the inside of my forefoot. Time to HTFU...

    Quick straw poll: what in your opinion (dear reader) are the most SF-approved and versatile colours for t-shirts? White, navy, heather gray...others?

    (For possiblities, look here.)

    Tobias: white and marle grey. I've seen some people really pull off black too, I personally don't.

    Think you cover the main ones.

    Next on the list, for me at least, would be a nice pale pink.

    Marble grey is probably my favourite choice.

    Navy t-shirt, and pale pink t-shirt. Natural white t-shirt is good. Optic white is too white for me, sometimes.

    The single BEST thing, though, when it comes to wearing t-shirts it to keep yourself in the best physical condition/shape possible. You invariably look better in the t-shirt, and probably without, but that doesn't interest me...

    I mean, obviously the list would actually be:
    1. Slayer
    2. Slayer again
    3. Heather grey
    4. Slayer
    5. White
    6. Navy
    7-405. Slayer
    406. Pale pink...actually no, Slayer
    ...and so on

    (thanks guise)

    I think it's an entertaining story, I really like the movie and the scenes in it. I find Patrick's character very interesting.
    Lacyzee knows what's up! Iron Maiden, Metallica and Lamb of God Tshirts are also good.

    My picks would be grey marle, grey marle and grey marle, then maybe a white and a blue. You can get colourful after that!

    Seeing that one only wears a T shirt under an opened necked shirt or an old one to the gym - white is the only colour.

    Otherwise if you are the type to wear a T shirt without a shirt, and presumably (shudder) without socks, why not go the whole way, htfu and wear a accadacca defacto-beater, or an interchangeable Slayer or Deicide, Cannibal Corpse or Status Quo sleeveless tank top.

    ernesto - close - but something about your two selfies above makes me think you are wearing them wit more than a touch of the THIM* dialed up. I don't feel that authentic vibe. Man.

    That's harsh brother.

    1) I don't do irony well (growing up in Preston in the 70s kills that off pretty quick).
    2) Too old to be a hipster.
