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.

    Haven't read the book but Reynolds comes off as really condescending in that excerpt.

    He tries to be nonjudgmental in most cases (hesitate to say objective). The passage I posted, although it is for sure condescending, was leading up to saying most innovation (again, primarily in music) in the last 40 years has come from working class and ethnic minorities, while the middle and upper classes were reveling in nostalgia

    He also has a chapter on Japanese obsession with recreating (mostly American) cultural moments that would have some resonance with SF readers. Also verges on dismissive, but...

    Really really been wanting some more club collar shirts. (If anyone has any Ervell ones in an XS hit me up!)
    Also my closet is now Ervell Dominant. Just need some more button shirts and trousers.
    I want to start styling it a bit more on the aggressive side. We'll see if I go with it in the future!

    Either SF or LA, not sure yet. I'd prefer SF but it sounds like they want me in LA

    one of the people who writes this blog is in the class I'm in right now. He doesn't know it, but I'll be fit-battling him 3x a week now.

    That's pretty much what I think about it too. It's alright, but I wouldn't read it if the authors didn't go to the same school I go to. Every once in a while somebody big (most notably putthison) will mention them.

    4est: you do realize, that if you wear those velcros, people might ask if you got them because of "thrift shop"?

    I didn't really understand what you meant by this so I went and watched that video and I now see now he wears some cheap velcro shoes in one part. I guess I never made it that far.

    whatever, I'll find some cool cheap shoes somewhere. I won't let some unfunny meme song ruin my summer!!!

    Wear chacos and have everyone reblog it. Then they become the new New Balances. Then everyone will do it and look awful and youll have destroyed fashunz from the inside. Conceptual de_forestation
