Tie by STRUCTURE - IMPORTED 100% SILK MADE IN U.S.A. (I think that's a contradiction!) - DRY CLEAN ONLY

I think I bought this on a spending spree at FOWAD. It's gone now, how sad.

*Insert tablecloth joke here*

First thing that popped in my head when I saw that tie:

"Way back, when I had the red & black luberjack, with the hat to match"

Now NAME THAT QUOTE!

And what's FOWAD?

That certainly is tablecloth-tastic.

I'm sure they've merely sold out which is why you can no longer find it. To discontinue such a masterpiece has to be some form of fashion sacrilege.

Silk ties in general truly are the spawn of the devil. I simply can't find any way to get anything approaching longevity from one. Even when you only dry clean sooner or later it starts to get scrunchy. And every one of them is either utterly iron resistant or simply melts on impact with even the slightest application of heat, which leaves you with an irretrievably crumpled garment.

EDIT: the lumberjack quote's Jay-Z no?

What you can no longer find is Fowad.



Fowad was a shady ghetto bargain basement (literally) full of clothes that had fallen out the backs of countless vans and trucks all over our great nation. It closed down to be replaced by, I believe, a Washington Mutual branch office. More on Fowad, and the general changing face of my old neighborhood, can be found on some dude's blog here.

That picture was taken about eight years ago from my 14th floor apartment window in a series of photos documenting the cleanup of a wicked car crash in the intersection of Broadway and 96th. (Check out the blood!) Thank goodness those pictures can serve some purpose to the youth of today.

I want you to know, I agree with everything I just said.

Wow, that looks like a brutal crash. Thanks for pointing out the pool of blood in the crosswalk there. I might have missed it.

So how did this accident occur? Just regular New York driving?

Accidents were a pretty regular occurrence at that intersection. There was major pedestrian traffic from the subway stop, then 96th was a throughway to the West Side Highway on one side and to the East Side on the other, throw in a lot of buses and it was always a big mess. I lived in that apartment for eight years so there was a lot of running to windows after hearing loud crash noises, at least once a month on average.

The other pictures aren't terribly interesting -- the minivan gets towed upright and away, then firemen come in and spray off the pavement, the end. The pictures in your mind are probably more exciting. The most exciting part is the pictorial document of the Upper West Side legend that is forever FOWAD

Aha. I'm assuming thus that the presence of the police in said area was by no means a one off occurance then, even in the absence of car accidents.

I'm convinced these shops just regenerate in any case though. As soon as one shuts down another appears elsewhere in the city within weeks and under ownership who look curiously familiar.

I suppose the Barras in Glasgow would be the biggest we've got but its got almost cockroach-like survival tendancies which enable it to survive the nigh on weekly police raids it endures.

The quote by FrostyFreeze isn't Jay-Z... it's Biggie from "Juicy". I thought the exact same thing when I saw the tie.

According to a study in the news today, Minneapolis is the 3rd most affordable housing market in the country. What do you think and does affordable also mean desirable ?
