  1. I did something very similar yesterday. Ohio has a more elegant ballot, though. I am wearing my dad's Patagonia fleece. It was too small for me until recently, and always had been. Put it on tonight, on a whim, as it's chilly outside, and I'm smoking a cigar. Fits me pretty well, maybe slightly snug. I imagine it was too big for him, if it now fits me, as I'm 3 inches taller and much broader through the shoulders and chest than he ever was. Feels good being able to wear it.
  2. Did you ever post a pic of that Journe you were buying, Zach?
  3. If the new Hodinkee Zenith had been released a year ago, I'd be lining up to get one. Hopefully Zenith gets the picture and continues on with smaller watches. This is a great size for a dressy chrono. You get dumber every time you open your mouth. It's pretty impressive, really. The old bracelets are extremely sturdy for their weight. This is why the Omega 1171 is a classic bracelet design: it doesn't weigh anything, but gets the job done. These are tool watches.
  4. This is something that gets ignored so often. Used tubes aren't NOS. Played records (or polished watches!) aren't mint. Worn shoes aren't brand new.

    I'm definitely looking forward to episode 3.
  6. I have about one hundred 78s, all classical, in basically mint condition, and no way to play them. Definitely weigh a ton! I got mine for free, too. No wife, anymore, but the girlfriend doesn't care. Ain't her house.

    Don't forget Black Hole Sun on the player piano!
  8. It's pretty easy. I follow the serious eats pressure cooker risotto recipe, more or less. Make 3 cups of miso whatever is your normal way (I use paste, bonito flake [this is not strictly vegetarian, and of course traditional kimchi has shrimp fry included] and a pressure cooker), and add some kimchi juice to it (I like the whole cabbage style, and I squeeze some dry, and capture the juice; you need to add 1 cup of kimchi juice to the 3 cups of miso). I had some parmesan rinds, so I tossed them in. You then just sauté the dry kimchi, with a finely sliced shallot and 3-4 minced garlic cloves

    I thought it was great, and it has tons of potential.
  10. It was yesterday, but kimchi pressure-cooker risotto (made with miso broth that included kimchi juice and parmesan rinds, with sautéed kimchi, garlic, and shallot, with ajikiri and sake replacing the normal white wine) and roasted butternut squash soup. Nice early autumn meal.
  11. I'm not going to post a pic, but I finally tracked down a PCS 7067/8 Beatles White Album. NM vinyl, but the sleeve and labels looks like they were dipped in water and tossed in a cave (maybe they were?). It took a significant cleaning (1 part 91% isopro, 1 part distilled water, .5 parts white vinegar, two caps of jet dry, in a half liter spray bottle, followed by microfiber cloths), but it sounds amazing.
  12. I wouldn't worry about it. The battery just means that it had been on the shelf for a week or two longer than "normal." Regarding the typing, if it's fine after a restart, it's a-ok.
  13. I have a "Mustang" nubuck. It's now black, as I dropped fountain pen ink on it, so I dyed it black (I also waxed it and textured it with a brass brush). I've worn mine quite a bit, and I haven't had much in the way of stretching. Great straps.
  14. Is that a Heuerville strap on the Sinn?
  15. Did they play "Quitter" or "Tyler?"
  16. Linguini made with tomato oil, copious garlic, toasted pine nuts, fresh basil, spinach, and parsley, sundried tomatoes, gorgonzola, cream, parm, and linguini. This was earlier tonight.
  17. Houses of the Holy. Not my pic, but a NM of the same pressing.
  18. Applied for a bunch of jobs, then made and served a bunch of pasta, and then played a bunch of board games while listening to a bunch of LPs. Not a bad Thursday evening.
  19. 2016 sucks ass. Then again, viraltimelapse is not a great source. Beyonce and Kim Kardashian still being, you know, alive.
  20. Gerry Mulligan Meets Been Webster. Reissue DMM
  21. Me too, this is an excellent question. Amplification and source.
