  2. I couldn't remember if these had been posted before, but a quick search didn't come up with anything. I was reading an article/interview with Fujiwara about early HTM projects and was reminded of the existence of the Solar Soft Sandal:

    I've spilled beer many times while walking around the city with an open beer in a jacket pocket, so I'm kinda into that koozie jacket...

    He presented prototypes of the upcoming collection (Raw Research II) at the Palais de Tokyo yesterday, I haven't been able to find any pictures of details of anything other than these moto jeans: "The raw denim trousers, named Motac-X, feature stretch fabric panels in areas that the body needs to move, such as the knee and hip joints. We have great stretch denim, but it's something that's standardised," Throup told Dezeen. "How can we get a garment to move with the body, but made out of rigid denim?" "Then you start engineering panels that move in certain ways, that are elasticated, that shifts and expands and twists as your skin does."

    Band shirts?

    I have a ton, rarely wear them but still buy them when I see a band I like (knowing full well I'll only wear it a couple times). Weirdly enough the only band shirts I seem to wear are bootlegs. A his hero is gone shirt, an MBV "you made me realise" EP cover shirt, and a really sick double-sided death shirt pulled from some obscure graphics they used early on in their career.

    Hi-Fi Nerds?

    I'm in the process of reworking my casual listening stereo set up and not trying to spend a ton. I just picked up a Sony STR-7045 and I need new speakers to really do this nice old solid state amplifier justice. The phono preamp section is such a step up from the old pioneer I was using previously. I need to give it a nice cleaning, it was kept in good shape but there are a few smudges here and there! For a speaker replacement, I was considering those pioneer SP-BS22, but I am almost positive Ill be picking up the Elac Debut B5 (ideally the B6, but most places are sold out). People raved about the pioneers for being budget speakers when they came out, and the Elac's (supposedly) blow them out of the water. It's also an Andrew Jones design, and not that much more expensive.

    what drugs are you ingesting today?

    I've been wanting to buy adrafinil, but I only ever find it in powder from from sources that I actually trust, I don't feel like buying gel caps and doing all that work. I guess I should though, it seems like the way to go in the long run. Been reading a bit about phenlypiracetam today, people say it is by far the most stimulating and energetic of the racetams - without really feeling like a traditional stimulant. Might be a cool substitute for Adrafinil? Holding off on ordering myself though, same deal - only finding powder and not caps.
