"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."
"I'd recommend these YouTube channels:
I'm a self taught woodworker and now work in cabinetry thanks to the skills I picked up from these channels and…"
"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…"
"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…"
"While there are many important Canadian writers, my top three favourite novelists would be:
- Michael Ondaatje (Sri Lankan-born)
- Margaret Atwood
- Sinclair Ross
I'd like to include Leonard Cohen, though he only wrote two novels and excelled…"
"And Kafka was Czech - though he was German-speaking. What do you mean by linguistic difference? American and British English are pretty close, sure, but I've found American and British literature to be two rather distinct genres, so 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…"
"I think it's important to note that coffee shouldn't be boiled at 100 degrees celsius/212 degrees fahrenheit. I think in fahrenheit something like 190-200 degrees is preferred.
If you're willing to switch methods, try this…"
"I've used these, and this is what I came here to suggest. That said, if you want real espresso, you're going to need a real espresso machine. Unfortunately, as you've noticed, they're quite expensive. I'd say get…"
Ernest Hemingway, Cormac McCarthy, Margaret Laurence
Leonard Cohen, Fleet Foxes, Hiss Golden Messenger
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.

"Some clothes are purely fashionable (tuxedos), some purely functional (coveralls/boiler suit), and the rest are on a spectrum between the two. I feel these vests (never heard the word gilet before so thank you for the addition to my vocabulary) lean…"
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
"It's ok, just caught me by surprise haha. I don't mind the direct approach :D, I prefer it as that's how things get done, no messing around ;) I tried a more casual approach today with a vest, would be interested for your…"
"Although I don’t know what it is like to be either black or a woman, I have felt like I’m rejected by everyone at times. I’ve had no success whatsoever when it comes to dating (any sort of relationship, romantic or otherwise,…"
