Louis House replied to Dustin Wilson's discussion Your Best Used Clothing Finds?
"I just found a nice Moores trench, brand new with original tags still on, for $17. I can't usually find suits as I'm fairly tall. I'd say at least half of my wardrobe comes from the thrift store though."

Louis House replied to Regular Joe's discussion Question about lathes for turning bowls
"There are plenty of bench-top lathes around. I turned a bowl on a bench lathe (not my own) just the other day, actually, and the thing was smaller than these models: The bowl I turned is about six inches in diameter and about three inches…"

Louis House replied to Pale Horse's discussion Obsolete Words Used Incorrectly Today
"A few dictionaries seem to define "rewind" as simply something along the lines of "to make a recording move backward". If the English language has adopted this broader meaning of the term, then we can't really say it's…"

""Several" meaning how many? This study found that 10 days of growth was the most attractive. You'd be right about ~5 days of stubble, though, which was rated the least attractive, apparently. "

Louis House replied to Loki's discussion Decent bottle of booze for my best friend?
"Back when I drank rum more than whisky, I'd drink Havana Club and Flor de Cana. They're probably the only rums I'd drink straight over ice, though I've never shelled out for anything too expensive. "

Louis House replied to Ben's discussion New jazz musicians to listen to?
"At first I thought you were looking for new, as in current/contemporary jazz artists. So I'll give you a few of those. "The later stuff" doesn't mean 50s/60s! Jazz hasn't died yet.Roy Hargrove is current. This tune of his is…"

Quote
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

There is a crack in everything; that's how the light gets in.

Life is short, art long, opportunity fleeting, experiment treacherous, judgment difficult.

A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one’s neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.

Has AOM jumped the shark or is it's just cyclical

There is nothing political or religious about this topic but let's face it, unless I'm discussing going shirtless or masterbating, there isn't too many active groups at the moment. I thought it would be a rude headline for the front page though. So here it is, on Herb's biblical paradigm/TGD. At least I think it is. You can't comment on the group's main page anymore and the feed doesn't show on the community main page either anymore (or does it again now?) so who knows, maybe no one can read…See More
