  1. They still make some of the best movements in the business, even in the Rolling Stones tribute watches.
  2. I've done it. It worked out pretty well.
  3. I wish it weren't 43mm, but I know that the original was, too. Great typeface on the bezel insert. Lovely watch. I like that Zenith is getting some real attention in the US, now.

    I didn't think so: most of the scenes with Dolores were quite measured. As were the scenes between Ford and Bernard. I thought the conversation between Teddy and Delores was lovely. I never know that Evan Rachel Wood was such a good actor. So, the woodcarver: I got the impression that he did that to himself to avoid being analyzed. Maybe part of the maze?

    Did you mean Satie, not Sartre? I don't remember the song. I thought episode three was pretty great. Answered a lot of questions, but raised new ones, too.
  6. Well, that's certainly one way to go.
  7. 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.
  8. Did you ever post a pic of that Journe you were buying, Zach?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  12. 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!
  14. 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. Replace the wine with ajikiri and/or sake (I did 1/4 cup ajikiri to a 1/2 cup dry sake), or even beer. Add a nob of butter and some additional parm at the end, before serving. I find that, with my pressure cookers (and I've been using a Fissler, of late), that I need to add a couple minutes to Kenji's timing. the 10 PSI setting is definitely the one you want to use, for al dente rice. The soup is super simple. Roast two medium sized squashes, toast the seeds (reserve), roast a bulb of garlic. add roasted squash flesh, after it cools, to Vitamix or similar blender (I use an Oster Versa 1400). Add 3 cups vegetable broth. Add roasted garlic. Salt and pepper to taste. Add olive oil to taste. Crank blender to high until the soup is extremely creamy and hot. Serve immediately, top with a drizzle of olive oil and the reserved toasted seeds.

    I thought it was great, and it has tons of potential.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Is that a Heuerville strap on the Sinn?
  21. Did they play "Quitter" or "Tyler?"
  22. 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.
