What shoes do you wear for work?

[Quote] what kind of dress shoes? isnt that the point of this thread? thats like saying "basketball shoes" instead of "jordan XI's", insufficient info please dont tell me your shoe game doesn't extend into anything other than athletic (this post goes for anyone else answering this thread in the same manner).

Felt 3

looking forward to giving this a listen. i really liked the 2nd one, although it got old kinda quick for me, but still liked it. Im much more of a murs fan than atmosphere.

Deadmau5

I like him overall, but his stuff is hit and miss for me, some of it i love (ghosts n stuff, faxing berlin, road to nowhere, etc), but some other parts of his mixes do nothing for me.

Forza 3

What is everyone using for difficulty settings? i have all the electronic aid's turned off and on medium its not much of a challenge, but on hard if i let someone pass me then i never can catch back up to them?) seems like a huge jump from medium to hard. Maybe if i just turn the stability and traction control back on it will help.

Timeberlands back or wack?

[Quote] IMO timberland is a legit brand and always will be. they have been making their boots for a long ass time, alot longer than all these new timberland wannabe companies making boots now. Not to say that (insert new popular brand here) isnt more popular than timberland at the moment, but thats just a fashion trend. Timberland sells so many damn boots to people that just want good boots and dont care about being on whatever new trend is out there. Their earthkeepers boots are sick btw. It just bugs me when people talk about legit brands like they cant mess with them anymore. Save that for brands like fubu or creative rec or Bape. If the hypebeast crowd stops buying [I]thier[/I] stuff then those brands die, brands like timberland nike, clarks, etc dont worry about one little segment like that as much (although the drop in the urban market has really hurt TBL in the past couple years). Timberland work boots, sperry boat shoes, converse all stars, etc... those shoes never go away, they just lose popularity with the 16-26 year old crowd, but everyone else has been buying them still all along, so to answer the question... the never really left. I dont think a legit brand like that can ever be all that wack, especially if they aren't just knocking off AF1's and dunks like the other supposedly hot brands.

Forza 3

[Quote] yea i have it on hard but i just have stability control turned on. I was using alot of the lower end cars though, i just started the calss c championship and have the 02 camaro ss and its a bit more difficult to control the car than the 250hp front drive cars i had been using. I may still end up turning the stability off though. Still trying to not use rewind. Only used it once last night and thats when i drove into the sand cuz i was itching my head (dont you hate those moments, haha) i think rewind is approproate in those cases. blushing

Forza 3

[Quote] Yea i don't know if i like the rewind or not yet. I have tried to abstain from using it unless its something that was really stupid that I did or some crazy bump in the first 15 seconds of the race that spun me out off the bat. It kind of takes away from the whole "wow i just ran a great lap or race" factor by being able to undo any mistakes you make. Its pretty crazy how fast you can accumulate money on there too, i played last night for about 2 hours and already have like 120,000cr and 5 cars. Also im kind of surprised at the difficulty, or lack thereof i guess, The only way i can make it harder is to turn off anti lock brakes and stability control, i refuse to turn off anti-lock since 99% of the cars on that game would have them in real life. Same with stability control, but all that's gonna do is make me use the brakes more, not necessarily make the computer cars more difficult. But i dunno maybe its just cuz i'm still racing in D & E class, probably will get harder in the upper levels. The game came with that download code for 10 extra cars, i have to go figure out which ones those actually are.

VH1 Hip Hop Honors 2009

i only caught wale's performance of kanye's song the other day, but i must admit that when i heard they were inducting def jam as a whole i thought that was kinda weak, but thats just because i have loved the first few. I will have to catch the whole thing on palladium to judge performances. But i also agree that having kanye's music on there is taking away from the nostalgia of the event that i liked so much. I just hope they dont water it down or lower their standards. When you talk about rakim, big daddy kane, tribe, etc you cant start putting newer lesser artists in there just to have a show and make money.

Comfortable working shoes

[Quote] yea you might want to wear something with an EVA midsole (NB's would work), both those shoes you named are mostly just rubber outsoles. Not sure what to do about the flat feet.

HDMI cables

word. i used to get them at cost from BB. Their $80 rocketfish cable is at cost for like $6, that lets you know that its just propaganda, guys above are correct, with the digital lossless cable no amount of shielding or insulation really matters much, on analog signals then yes. They are just hyping everyone to believe that you need it on hdmi as well. monoprice is best site for all cables of any kind!
