    I don't like shantungs because they look unfinished. I know,that's probably the point. But to me it is like this sentence, it just feels

    Embrace the wabi sabi mentality my friend.

    Your sentence might be unfinished, but due to that it is also

    It seems to me that Noodles doesn't know what he wants, other than "more ties." You can't help a man unsure of his own desires.

    There will likely be local storage as there has been for iTunes Match. iPhoto has sucked for years. No experience with Aperture. Adobe has moved to a subscription model for its software and fuck that noise.

    Noodles, those are really nice what you have, though I think the TF check could be paired better. Please note, I did not say that you are too boring, I said that Id like to see some variation within your boringness. But, you got to be you.

    I love shantung, but Im not gonna fight for it, its always been a fabric that has lovers and haters.

    I have already bookmarked 20 ties on sam hober that I want, and I really don't need more ties. :S this discussion is bad for me.

    Apple is evil. I never even wanted the iPod my beloved insisted I had to have for my birthday six years ago. (Sshh! Don't tell her!)

    They don't mean to be evil, maybe, but they are: as they don't really invent anything except packaging and slick marketing, they can only keep you by locking you into Apple World. I prefer the promiscuity of my PC, though even my Windows Phone is starting to ask me to store some files in the "cloud" i.e. "give it to The Man".

    Anyway, yeah. I would hope you'll still have a local storage option, but there's a reason Apple don't put removable memory cards in their phones and computers, or allow them to act as simple external drives: if they have all your data, you can never leave....

    Yes you can: simply impose your own preferences upon his malleable brain. I am entirely confident that this will be helpful.

    Noodles, you need some texture. Get wool and cashmere ties for winter, and linen and shantung for summer.

    Shatungs, in my environment, is more of a distraction as people ask me what is wrong with the tie.

    @in stitches
    I was being very self-critical. Not saying you said anything negative.

    anyone following the Pistorius brouhaha? - sorry for the derail, but this is priceless

    I often wake up in the middle of the night and hear someone in my bathroom. My first reaction is to go get my gun and empty the magazine through the door to neutralize the threat. Toilet paper theft is a hug problem in America and the liberal media refuses to cover it.

    Plus 1 to MF. Some wool and cashmere blends would probably be a really nice addition for Noodles this coming fall and winter.
