I always wonder if the Alabama equipment manager sends a grad assistant out to Home Depot every August with a blank check and directions to buy a box lot of the number decals by the mailboxes.

is to a well-written review with a streaming sample. So take a chance, I guarantee that $75 Guitar are nothing like any other band mentioned on this thead.

Removing the foot would've been awkward.

A bumper sticker we made when I worked for a record label. Billy Corgan had one on a guitar. We never got around to making "My other car belongs to my parents, too" stickers.
|39 weeks 1 day ago||Ditto on Harry's||
I like Harry's blades and holder, although I would really like them if there was a trimming blade. I'd also recommend the use of a good pre-shave oil for those with the time. And definitely use a post-shave balm.

Jim Harbaugh knows to hire good people and let them work. As a professional in communications, it seems pretty obvious to me that Coach Harbaugh has been paying attention to all kinds of developments and putting some work into marketing. He's surrounding himself with some smart people in that regard.

I got my journalism MA from Newhouse, where they told us to "show me, don't tell me." Greenstein has done a lot of telling and very little showing.

Nice to see Mike Hart (Onondaga Central HS) return to CNY. Along with the hiring of Dino Babers as a Salt City native and MA-holder from SU I have reason to follow the Orange again.

From the report:
"The vast majority of players, coaches, and sports medicine staff interviewed dismissed any such notions and reported no concern or even interest in either issue. Instead, witnesses interpreted these motivational tactics as meaningless."

that Cheap Thrills used to be the best record store in New Brunswick, NJ?

|1 year 11 weeks ago||I'm an Urbana resident||
and I can tell you that the t-shirt shop printing Creepy Racist Mascot shirts is also the source of the Muck Fichigan/ Ann Arbor is a Whore shirts, too. The "rivalry" notion is strongest in the Greek community and embittered locals who never got over losing the aforementioned creepy mascot. Most University staff and academics chuckle when the topic of a rivalry comes up. A huge percentage of students here are international and really don't give a hoot.

Or maybe Vest Rock. The two overlap.

My wife and I moved to Urbana recently. We still still listen to WFMT every weekday morning (and most of the weekend, obviously).

There is and it kicks ass. In a freeform way, of course.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Fresh ground Espresso!||
At last! Thanks for initiating a coffee discussion 901P. I grind espresso in a burr grinder and brew with a Bialetti stove top espresso maker. I live in Urbana, IL and recently discovered that the Espresso Royale shops here sell excellent whole bean coffee. I'm also partial to cofees from Wisconsin: Colectivo (Milwaukee) and Just Coffee (Madison).
Then some half and half and honey, which I found I really enjoy in my coffee,

I've got a D'deridex-class Warbird there.Not that you can actually see it or anything.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||What will satisfy me?||
Seeing the relief in our opponents' eyes when the fourth quarter of each game is over. Everything else will follow.

New series by Mark Waid is a fave. Less gratuitous "darkness," more fun.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Pre-shave oil/ post-shave balm||
I'm surprised that none of you shaving nerds have mentioned use of a pre-shave oil. There are many to choose from and jojoba oil will set you up nicely for a shave. I always use a balm after shaving as well (currently Geo. Trumper Skin Food.) Chicago Wolverine, take a trip to Mertz Apothecary in Lincoln Square or the Palmer House downtown. They can set you up.

is perfectly acceptable Romulan name. What's your deal?
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Ron Johnson = My first Michigan hero||
I was but a young lad in Upstate NY watching one of those college all star games where the guys all wear their college helmets. I saw Johnson the distinctive Michigan helmet and my imagination was captured. I went on to follow his career with the New York Football Giants, my favorite pro team. And I became a fan of Michigan football.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Manlius is my hometown!||
For at least a year everyone in my dorm said I was from Manliness, New York. Right now I am in my office in Champaign, IL. And when I cross the street I'll be in Urbana.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||The Illinois Difference||
I work in Champaign-Urbana and can confirm that the attitude of University of Illinois alumns, students, fans and university staff is definitely different from that of their Michigan equivalents. The Chancellor (who has an advanced degree from Michigan btw*) mentioned this in public a few weeks ago. Despite the many academic strengths of the institution, Illini are reluctant to talk up their university. As for sports... fans here remind me of one of my cats when he walks around my feet; he remembers being stepped on and is always afraid he'll get stepped on again.

My wife lived above it while she was in grad school at RISD. Get some Johnny Cakes and you might change your mind.
