      Watching Italian chefs react to other chefs making Italian cuisine is more fun than expected. Do not break the spaghetti...

      A Seiko 7002 can be had for 80-ish Dollars. The SKX costs at least 200 in retail. Seriously, with that 7S26 that is overcharging...

      Even in 2019 I prefer Tool on CD. Something about a CD-player and a reliable HD600...

        I was just thinking, it totally makes sense why Tool's new album dethroned Taylor Swift's at #1. Tool fans still buy albums.

        The CD ritual isn't all that different from the vinyl one, at least in spirit if not also in practice. Both can be very satisfying :)

      Looked around for a Seiko Turtle, bought a Seiko 7002. I cannot explain why. Paying retail for an SKX when the 7002 costs way less, nope...

        I love my 7002, it's just different enough from the SKX to be more awesome!! Crown at 4 o'clock which gives it a slightly slimmer profile, date only vs day/date and square vs oval indices.

        Need to post my Turtle re-issue in the watch thread. Have had it for a little over a year.. it's my first mech. LOVE IT. The pad and raised bezel means business. Dig the (authentic) tool-y look and functionality.. looks classy too.

        Lost a SKX171 modded with a Murphy bezel due to theft. Maybe I should recreate it before they disappear.

      Seiko will stop making the SKX. I kind of want one. A Submariner might be cool but a SKX is kind of cooler...

        Bummer! I don't own one, but they are pretty rad. With Seiko also discontinuing many of their entry-level watches with the 6R15 movement, they don't seem to represent the same bang-for-your-buck that they used to.

        The seiko mini turtle is a good alternative to the SKX.

      Aglio e Olio, such a beautiful dish. Once you master the flavour you enjoy pasta so much more.

        It doesn't fit at all.

        Here hard cheese is a more common spice on pasta than salt is, this and a couple of other spicy ones are the exceptions.

        Pecorino is acceptable on arrabbiata, so long as you get the one that is itself effectively strong enough to taste spicy.

        I made fresh pasta and this dish for my now wife early when we were dating (and a million times since). She claims it was a big factor in realizing I was worth keeping around. I've still not mastered it, but I'm fond of it for obvious reasons.

        If it'll make you feel better, we can strangle ojneg on a rope of his own guts. He probably won't like it!
        Or we can write him a sternly written letter and sign it by hand.
        Either one. Pm me.

        I don't know the cause of this upset, and I am not going to go looking for it. It's a community: it takes all sorts. And hey, just because someone is a Trump supporter or a Brexit supporter doesn't mean they have nothing that I can't talk to them about. Heck, I even make friends with rich people in the audio community!

        …unless you're writing a new game engine. Or spacecraft simulations. Or ballistics study. Or high explosives. Or the impact of gamma rays on radioisotopes used in medicine. Or nuclear energy.

        Or what happens to water when you drop a rock into it.

        So, maybe not so impractical?

        Thank goodness the company-pension minimum contribution was not optional. But sadly, I ignored all the good advice to pay more.

        Can't remember if you've seen Knights of Sidonia but it's worth a watch if you want something a bit heavier.

        Loved Gundam Unicorn! Good return to classic form for the series, and the animation was top notch. Good palate cleanser after Iron Blooded Orphans (which was still good but... eh?).

        "War in the Pocket" is next I think. I loved I.B.O. Mikazuki Augus is the Guts-version of a gundam pilot. Unicorn was good, not my favourite. "Knights of Sidonia", will look that up...

      I love the Cure. Not much of a fan of their radio hits. Songs like The Short Term Effect, From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea and The Kiss are where they really shine- layers of swirling guitars and synths. When Robert Smith starts busting out funk licks I tune out though.

        Think I'm alone thinking [The Same Deep Water as You] is epic and a beautiful transition into Disintegration, and you do need to be in the mood... also, in America, they use to skip Same deep water, we just don't get it-- lol
