flatluigi: A faint line is no longer visible on the heads of babies. Fish are no longer duplicated in the fridge when moving homes. Sims can no longer “Try for Baby” with the Grim Reaper. Sims who are on fire will no longer be forced to attend graduation before they can put themselves out. Children and…
HOW TO SHARPEN PENCILS: The People's Bailout →
howtosharpenpencils: This is a long post but it’s about something pretty interesting so I hope you’ll indulge … Like many folks, Occupy Wall Street has been some doing good work in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, helping people on the ground. Now OWS is launching the ROLLING JUBILEE, a program that has been in… This is fucking incredible.
One of my favorite discount sites has a handful of his in-house brand suits back in stock, and I recommend them as a reasonable off-the-rack suit purchase. The suits feature unfinished sleeves(for easier adjustment to your arm length), functional boutonnière with keeper loop(for the flower stem), traditional styling, and most important - a fully canvassed jacket. Look for the...

I’ll tell you...– -Gene Wilder, from a letter to Mel Stuart (director of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory), on Willy Wonka’s wardrobe. I love Wilder’s attention to detail - he knows that fashion offers insight into character. via the Daily What (via infectedworldmind) This is so wonderful. It gives me even...

Mr.Porter Spring Sale(Part 1)
Today the seasonal sales kicked off at Mr.Porter, and quite a bit of their stock is getting depleted rapidly. There’s so much at this store I like, I’ve had to break this rundown into several components. First up is the stuff most likely to sell out(apart from the things that have already sold out, like the cheapest suits and blazers) - accessories! Remember, there are plenty more things on sale,...
Picks from Park & Bond's Spring Sale

The broadcast version was only 42 minutes long, but this sumbitch runs one hour and fifteen minutes. Uh, that seems like a… Here’s the XBL/Zune link to buy Tompkins’ new show:...
OGRE is Coming... →
I didn’t play this game when it released(I’m not that old, come on), but the first time I played was with the original booklet. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am that it is getting a deluxe edition release. It’s almost as fantastic as the news that the set will have miniatures that don’t require painting! …plus, you can get faction lapel pins. I...
Whisky! (Also Whiskey)
I can’t remember how I found this book(probably due to all the whiskey that came shortly after), but it is one of the best things I’ve found this year. Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2012 - you may not share his taste preferences, but at the least it will guide you toward better whiskey. The iOS/Android editions are worth the extra expense, since the bible is searchable and you can...
