1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    You'd love it out here. Thrift stores either have Christian Music or Country Music.

    We have 80s music. So good. So appropriate.

    Goodwill radio played Down By The Water by PJ Harvey a few weeks ago. I thought it was a weird choice. Once Halloween music starts I'm excited to be thrifting to the full version of Bela Lugosi's Dead.

    That, and Ecstacy, are always on my PJ playlist.

    For Halloween music, check out the Hellraiser themes by Coil. Creepy shit.

    Current/Elliot Men's med weight henley with button cuffs. I have been coveting this shirt for a long ass time, and I've only seen 3 before since they are samples. Fits perfectly. Under 20$ too, so I was super stoked. Planning to wear it tomorrow.

    I wouldn't say that would never happen, but especially with the bigger makers like Polo, Trafalgar, Mezlan, Allen Edmonds, Ben Silver, etc..., it's going to be labeled as Alligator. What you have is called embossed leather, and you described it perfectly. Regular ole cow leather pressed to look like a crocagator.

    I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I blast Norwegian Death Metal at full volume when I'm popping tags. :foo:

    Edit: Wes, that's really cool!

    Only sometimes. Have to be in the right mood. This past week I was sitting on my parents front porch staining some crown molding blasting 80's/90's Punk Rock, and metal in a quiet suburban neighborhood.

    Damn those Scandinavians sure can come up with some amazing sounds though.
