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,

    This is an early 1900's Chimayo with a whirling log motif. Spoilered to explain first: for those not up on the history of some stuff, this is not a swastika. The symbol / design is over 5,000 years old. EDIT TO ADD: I have no intention of keeping this - strictly to flip...

    Would Vote for "Spoo Live Crew".

    And that Newspaper is perhaps one of the most Historically significant items ever posted.[​IMG]

    New guys take note. this thread is about the extreme significance of items as much, if not more than what some schleb on Ebay is willing to lowball us on.
    We have some serious history buffs in here. and nerds on almost any topic.

    At this point I think the original gist has been lost and, while some entries have been amusing, perhaps we can retire it and go back to infighting and name calling?

    Right impuntura you big goon?

    Hahaha! ha? (please don't squash me)

    Just wondering, if Spoo did make a band. . . perhaps other members could play in it? practicing at home, and playing a gig in a small bar as a meet activity?
    would be interested to see it. just thinking out loud.

    this band thing was fun, but over now, I think (please). the only instrument I can play is the skin flute.

    I just took a 4 hour nap. That was a new one. Thanks, bottle of merlot.

    @impuntura that jacket is pretty amazing, congrats. Are you keeping?

    Spruce: great patterns on those Samuelsohns. Nice stuff.

    Spoo: I didn't read your post at first and was so confused when I saw the tat. I'm like, did he really put his own name on his arm? Or make his wife brand herself? It was a weird moment.

    That Thom Browne looks a little funny.... I want to go out on the limb and say it might be fake.
