1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    i always wait til im super starving to hit up souplantation, haha. i get pissed when i get full [​IMG] we go to the pasadena one whenever we're in the area but there's one in arcadia thats closer. they have strawberry apple cobbler this month!!!!!!

    the only time i ever had tickets to the knitting factory the show got cancelled. is it good?


    Yup, Souplantation requires preparation. Eat a lot the day before to stretch out your stomach, then exercise in the late morning/early afternoon like crazy. Get cleaned up, and an hour later, you could eat a house. That is the time to hit up Souplantation.

    The knitting factory is pretty cool. Nearly all standing room, but it is pretty small, so you can always get a good spot in the middle to feel the vibe. (And being an attractive female never hurts - just the facts.) Last show I saw there was a few years ago was the New Pornographers (Neko!) Great vibe... It being at Hollywood and Highland is sort of wierd though...

    Hell. Yes.

    The one I go to always has a drivethrough wait of about 15-20 minutes (even when there's only a few cars in front of me) but damn, is it worth it.

    Their spicy chicken strips are the bomb. The jambalaya is awesome too.

    sounds like you have souplantation down to a science, haha.
    the thing that confuses me about the knitting factory is how they have different bands playing in different rooms???? or thats what it says on the site/show listings....

    Knitting Factory has 3 different rooms, sometimes each room is a different event with a separate admission for each room. My band is playing in their "Alter-Knit" room next tues nite.

    Souplantation on Lake Ave rules....much better than its inferior bizarro cousin Soup Exchange, which has probably gone under as I have not seen one in years

    there used to be a once-a-month club in the alter-knit lounge called "par avion". that was a great place. what's the name of your band? maybe i'll check out the show. anonymously, of course.

    i like the souplantation across from the beverly center. they have good chili and corn bread.

    And none of that "Hello! My name is Andre, I'll be waiting on you today; would you guys like to hear the specials?" bullshit.

    Some days when you come home, the suspense of seeing whether or not your house has been leveled by a tornado.
    DP, I grew up in Tornado Alley also. I spent many summer evenings in the neighbors' storm cellars! But I sure do miss Rush Springs watermelons, J&W Grill and GOOD fried okra.

    SteveB, serious question. If you hate Texas so much, why don't you leave? This would be a great time to do it, while you're "in transition" with your job. I just can't imagine spending my life somewhere I was so miserable. I'm just looking out for you, Steve. I want YOU to be happy.[​IMG]

    Pretty much everything you guys have in these so-called "states" we have in NY. Quite frankly, everything in the world we have here in some incarnation. So I miss nothing, everything is close, I can go to the beach or musuem or winery or mountain hiking or skiing, we have trucks/stands selling every possible food imaginable, beautiful women of every color and race, stores that carry the best of everything, the best sales etc. etc.

    So in closing, I live in the best place in the world and everywhere else pales in comparison. Good day.

    No insult to NY at all, but sometimes its not what your city has, but what it doesn't have, that makes it great.

    For me, the unbearable, almost suicide-inducing disappointment that I, and most everyone else cursed to live in the dregs of the "flyover country" that comprises the other 49.5 states that make up this thing called the U.S., which we all know only exists as lip service to the awe-inspiring grandeur of New York City, experience, is slightly ameloriated by the fact that it's great not having to put up with the stereotypical myopic, "the world revolves around me" New York attitude. Oh, and New York's Mexican, Cajun, and Southern food selections suck, too.

    I love--LOVE--NYC. But if you think New York has real beaches, I'm afraid you're beyond help. Plus, if you were in Cali, you'd have access to everything listed above within a couple hours driving time, except the weather and the people would be much more pleasant. [​IMG] EDIT: Where all the Southerners at? Seriously, let's get some people repping the South in here.
