    biggest local trash/nerd convention ever. Guy/girl ratio of about 50 to 1. Rode back on the train across from a guy wearing Visvim Virgil cap Folks and a Burberry black label puffer jacket, $5 haircut. Steez.

    baconzilla's MDR is so nice. Is that calf? I'm having a hard time telling from the photo.

    :inlove: baconzilla's fits.

    It's the 2.3, sort of like a pre-cursor to the MDR. He wrote about it here.

    Are the TOJ1 and baseball jacket cut in the same pattern? I could possibly size up to the 48 for the toj1, so somebody better jump on the baseball that was just listed in BS.

    no. While people have to size up for the TOJ1 the BBal jacket if anything seems to fit a bit bigger than regular TOJ sizing... IMO a lot of the time it looks a little too big on people wearing it in their regular size.

    haha. never lived in California (although I almost moved there and then cancelled my trip the night before, long story) - so I never got to go to those things. I think if I did and my fate chose the other road, I would've ended up killing time in California with some Asian-American hoozy, would be living in mediocrity somewhere in America now pushing the pen and paper around for a paycheck and have an aging Civic hatchback, and TOJ would've never happened. Think about that.... it was somewhat accidental that I got to see the bigger picture, but fuck, how I wish I knew what I know now, back at age 20... I should choose a young protege and groom them for world leadership...

    it's not an internship, you will have to pay me for life coaching - like a tuition, of sorts. I will work with you for 2 to 4 years to ensure that you are a finely tuned money-making, J-beezy getting machine with stories that will make J. Petermann feel unaccomplished.

    well it seems like i have to get a good amount of savings going before launching my own business/pursuing my passion on the side

    i can't help but think i'm living in mediocrity now having read your previous post. i am living your former self , "...pushing the pen and paper around for a paycheck and have an aging Civic..."
