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.

    Not sure if this is a meta dig at SZ for having that photoshoot at the site of a disaster.

    If Freddie Gibbs has taught me anything, it's that Gary, Indiana is fucking awful.

    There are many reasons that I decided to stay here in Moscow, ID, and that is one of them. I thought hard about what benefits I would get from being in a major metropolis, either in the Bay Area, or somewhere decidedly cheaper, and the cons far outweighed the pros, for me, at this time in my life.

    I suppose that if I were 25, single, and with no kids, my calculations would have taken me elsewhere.

    I just always assumed Moscow, ID was a joke and not a real place [​IMG]

    :happy: This could be a t-shirt! funny


    Me too, never took that seriously. I just googled it though and it looks very picturesque … it must be quite pleasant there, never been to Idaho.

    Yeah, it's a nice place. Even a few decent places for food these days. Great farmers market in the summers. A lot of random people from all over who either move back, after having been elsewhere, or end up here because of family connections, or like me, were drawn by the two universities 8 miles from each other. Recently, we just got an honest to goodness good pastry chef and a cakemaker. There is also a guy here who does pretty decent croissants. Sorta an odd, cool, town that was once an old hippie enclave.

    Speaking of Ann D, do all the Scamosciato's fit the same (boots, derby, sneaker)?
    I had a pair of the derbies a few years ago (3 maybe?) in a 45 and they were too big (I'm a US12), I'm looking for a pair of the boots now in a 44 and just wondering if that's the right call.

    Also, some pretty great trolling by Wil Fry:

    Y'all could just hit the nice middle ground and live in a city like Denver (but not Denver, WE'RE FULL). We have most of the good qualities of a larger metropolis but without the bursting-at-the-seams population crowding and a relatively low cost of living in the grand scheme of things. Plus, mountains.

    Feels like Gr@iled is rapidly declining under its own weight. There is simply too much fluff to browse through anymore. Even with my filters applied, every other item is Supreme, Bape or some other equally-garish hypebeast piece of junk.

    There are also too many people selling $50 baseball caps. I was looking just now, and there is seriously somebody selling a Uniqlo shirt for $20. How is that possibly worth the effort to even take the photos? Feels like the entire site is becoming populated by 15 year-olds.

    I almost wish they would create different sections, one for more streetwear oriented stuff and one for artisanal and higher-end brands.

    I'll pay the premium to live in the bay (and give up various freedoms). The diversity and weather >>>> just about anywhere in the states.
