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.

    But be careful in west hollywood.

    I don't know if theres a grooming thread, just bought the semi anual bottle, this stuff is amazing especially if you hate moisturizer and its gross oily creamyness that never absorbs properly.

    Are we talking about lube now?


    Some of those natural water based ones are great for vaginal because they dry out once you stopped, meaning that you don't get that nasty gooey feeling if you don't have time for a shower. Best to stick with silicone-based for anal.

    Stupid Japanese magazines have told clueless heritage/streetwear people they were cool, just like New Balances so you have a lot of people posting these here and on sufu (just checked the recent purchases there), someone even posted a massive fail outfit with them on stylezeitgeist. Next is probably Guatemalan hats, oh wait maybe not heritage enough.

    Birks are ugly as sin and my friends give me endless shit for them, but I've worn them for so long i've accepted them as part of my repertoire.
    I've always thought new balance were hideous though.

    Nice try, you just happened to purchase and post them here at the same time that this shitty trend is exploding? Sure, I hope you have a better explanation when you get caught for sexual tourism in Phuket.

    You just noticed trends are cyclical? They're popular now, doesn't mean it is the first time.

    when i first saw the last post by and it said, "I'm leaving thursday to go to thailand for a month..."

    i thought the recent purchase would be a few boxes of condoms :foo:

    The general consensus shows everything on this forum isn't popular, but that doesn't stop everyone here from splurging on margiela gats and RO dunks.

    As surprising as it seems people aren't aiming for undifferentiated mediocrity but adherence to the norms and language of a certain group, so neither pure belonging nor entirely singular distinction.

    When you have a thread called "Recent Purchases" I think one of the few valid reasons for its existence is to observe some form of trending.


    90% of it is for validation and conspicuous consumption, but at least we get to see the difference between what gets talked about and what people actually buy.

    You really come across as judgemental and preachy despite being a supposedly well-educated, open minded libertarian... No offense of course.
