    Lately I have reached the backlash point for the antiqued shoes...naturally aged patina is ok, but otherwise have seen enough.

    I believe this cycle is suppost to be for a specific item or style. Each stage should be signified as a time period. Example "Pre buzz - 1998".

    You've shamed me for forgetting Magda.

    But my heart still lies with the sister with the long running feud with Elke Sommer, the one who slaps officers of the law at traffic stops.

    No. This is not a lifecycle chart.
