    Came from Barnstormer to Ukraine in four weeks, the last leg of the route, from Poland, overland in a truck.

    Ordered from Barnstormer. No hassle, no worries, no rush. Shirai was very calm and friendly. And the price is much, much lower than S&S asks for.
  3. Actually, only items that you have personally skinned from an animal qualify as handmade, I suppose...

    Well, they had pre-ordering deadline for ducks for a month or so. They would have the same for denim for a week or day, but not for 2 minutes...

    Yes, exactly. This system of selling at exact time is all fucked up. Last year S&S launched a prepayment ordering for OA duck pants, everybody interested was able to place an order without stress and agitation. Why not following the same again?

    Since I was refreshing the page constantly, I'm sure the jeans didn't show up for me until 9:03, when the size 38 was already sold out. Why that happened is another question. Of course, it was a real bummer, since I had been waiting for months since last December, when it was first announced. Nevertheless, since it happened, it was for the best. Many good things come to us in the form of bummers.

    I did the same with refreshing the page constantly, it changed at 9:03 only and 38 was sold out already. They claim they had 6 pairs in 38 which were sold at first two minutes. Well, it looks their system works just fine.

    I was refreshing the page every second, item appeared at 9:03 AM and my size 38 was sold out. Not so sure it wasn't sold to anyone else who were... more equal than others...(((

    Odessa is a city of cats, they are loved and well fed. Cats are well aware of this, and they feel fine. Two celebrities at the bazaar, Marusya and Syoma (with nectarines).

    What are your jeans doing today?

    On my daily walk to the Novy Bazar (New Bazaar, which is two hundred years old -- in Odessa, Ukraine), for fresh fruits and vegetables. Air defense alarm blaring sometimes.

    World of denim shops

    I was buying from them many years ago. In fact, my first Japanese jeans, Samurai, were purchased from Denimio. Since then, as it seems to me, a lot has changed in terms of customer service, and not for the better. The last time I wrote to them with questions was a year or so ago and I didn't get any response. The organization of the site is even more annoying than before, and the selection of brands is mostly of no interest to me. Good riddance.
  14. That's exactly what I expect from a guitarist who plays with the Dead & Company, a band largely dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Grateful Dead. Even the fact that he's a pale shadow compared to Jerry Garcia is a preferable thing. As a deadhead myself, I don't much want anyone to outshine Jerry while playing with Bobby, Mickey and Bill. I do, however, find Mayer's solo albums quite listenable. But I can't be non-biased when it comes to someone who is some way in the orbit of my favorite band...
