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.

    +1 on the sennheiser hd-25 II's.
    They're pretty much the industry standard for DJ's all over the world for their excellent isolation, full frequency spectrum (super and powerful deep sub bass and nice treble) and the fact that the cable only connects to one side = no twisting cables. They can play very, very loud. The sound quality is very detailed and sharp.

    They're quite big, but they're partly foldable.

    Damir has undergone this weird transition where his mainline is totally unappealing and the diffusion line is getting better every season.

    Wish he was still using the wicked soft organic cottons though. My FW10 (11? maybe) shirts are so much softer than my newer ones

    I remember the tag on Silent's first season had some commitment to organic fabric printed on it. So much for that. :lol:

    seems like a lot of brands start out saying they're going to use only the best, organic, eco-friendly whatever fabrics made in fair-labor factories and then after a couple of seasons as they look at their margins they're suddenly thinking 'holy shit, we're making nothing." then the fabrics get a little cheaper and production moves and then finally a little money starts coming in. the brand starts taking off, not because they cheapened the product but because it takes a few years to really get the ball rolling, but once it's rolling they've already cut back wherever they could. now the cash is coming in and they're not thinking, 'hey, let's go back to great fabrics and the best factories." they're thinking, 'we must be doing something right. if we could up the margin just a little more then we'd really start making some money.' the brand keeps expanding and now that they have some basic designs set and they know what sells they stop making stuff that doesn't sell, and then before you know it they're not even designing anymore, just doing market research to figure out which fabric to offer their bestseller in next season because why design something if you already know what works and...
