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.

    This is my new project. I will share something entertaining with you every day. Something interesting. Something that I'm thinking about or enjoying. It may not be much, but It will be here.



    Today's thing I'm enjoying is my playlist. The link can be found in my signature. I'd like to call your attention to a few tracks I'm currently infatuated with:

    Neko Case - Ghost Wiring. Haunting and awesome.
    Astra Heights - Never A Reason. Sort of a retro 60's pop thing.
    The Pixies - Caribou. I love this song. But then again, I love the band...

    I personally recommend just opening the playlist and listening to it straight through in the background while you go about your other stuff. Thats what I'm doing.

    I am going to give you props for the Neko Case track. Really, that entire album is the shit. So was the one after that. I fear you will never post anything that is as interesting to me for the entire life of this thread.

    That is all.

    Maybe, but I'm somewhat unpredictable. I might surprise you.

    Oh man slim, I think I saw your cousin or uncle or something on the train a couple weeks ago. I should have snapped a pic, the resemblance was uncanny. About the same hight, build, hair, and glasses. I was like (in my mind) "Fully shit, Its Tokyo Slim!"

    This is a great idea TS. You need just a little bit more schtick to it though to really nail it. Like you only make one post per day? Themes of the week? And I plan to look up Cat Case on iTunes when I get home tonight.

    I will take suggestions for the theme of the week on Sundays i guess... Due to the nature of this thread, its essential randomness, and the unpredictability of what i might be thinking about or interested in at the time, the "theme" might not be apparent or clear.

    I have a good one for today I think. But you'll have to wait until i get home.

    So today's "new thing" is a big departure from yesterday's. Today I was thinking about the vast underground spaces that exist under almost every major and most minor cities. Steam, bus, subway, power, drainage, and other kinds of tunnels, maintenance and storage areas, bomb shelters, abandoned basements, miles of city blocks that were regraded or covered.... There are some really interesting stories and facts out there. There are people who explore these man-made caves out of fun and curiosity. There are people who live in them out of necessity, preference, or... habit? Dark Days Abandoned subway stations/levels NYC Newark Yokohama Paris Cincinnati London Misc. Including Tokyo More London Seattle Portland Jinx Magazine Photos - some stylish gents in here! Sub-Urban (UK) The Grandaddy of them all, Infiltration R.I.P. Ninjalicious. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] There is so much under your feet! Interesting thought of the day. Enjoy!

    There's actually a new show on the History channel about exploring sewage systems in major/ancient cities. Those pictures are really cool TS.
