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.

    You gotta pick a horse and ride.

    That's the beauty of Tubo. You can wear it right side out and be dressed up, or turn it the other way and be rockstar.

    Tubo inside out seems a little Edward Scissorhands, no? Or maybe the Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman?

    You aren't taking into account the wrong-side-out buckle dangling with a rebellious, devil-may-care scorn for authority.

    Ha! Unlike most schools, Georgetown has a wino flask. Classic. The obvious message is, if you went to Georgetown, you have a lot to drink about. Not "to"..."about." Probably right...

    Yeah--you can tell by the orientation of the buckle. Stitching on the outside would be disgusting.

    I thought you just said stitching on the outside was disgusting...now it's rockstar-like? [​IMG]

    Rockstars disgust me. What's so confusing about that?

    But the undone buckle could make you the next sensation of WAYW.

    Bridle belts don't need backing:

    On SF, these are commonly referred to as bridal belts. That's hot.

    Continuing my use of genre metaphor, I picture you walking into the distance to sad piano music, like Bill Bixby at the end of the old Incredible Hulk TV show.

    Only your belt buckle is undone.

    If the belt were made from a baby alligator's tail, you wouldn't need any stitching.

    I'm pretty sure that kitonbrioni has several baby alligator belts like these.

    I am waiting for the day that he incorporates plants and minerals into his wardrobe. The animals need to rest.

    It looks like Frankenstein otherwise.

    In the back, where no one will ever see the stitching but you. Stitching on the edge would show to everyone else.
