11 minutes of time for 3 songs

3 people that I've known for a long time ...one I've known for 26 years, one I've known for 15 years.....one I've known for 7 years.....have died.
all within the last 6 weeks.
My sadness is tiny compared to the grief of their families.
 This makes me....feel very strange.
Almost as if I'm only entitled to feel strange.
So I went to find some....music, some art, so to place it in its place.

sleek classy early 1960s style

I so applaud the mini-trend I see trying to educate men to grow up and stop dressing like a 9 year old. I am sick of seeing grown men, in slobby oversized tshirts and those retarded cargo pocket short/pants things ......
See Mark. ...linen slacks, crisp white cotton shirt, black skinny braces, vintage watch and vintage RayBans....

from the blog 2xbreasted, which is all about artful men's fashion.
allow me to show you how a grown up dresses.

and in 2009, a lot of that sleek 60s-ness was channeled in this Moschino spring show.

Shorter pants......not everyone can pull that off....but there's a lot of goodness there...simple classic lines and some effort in good grooming......all guys can do that much.

These early 60s Levis hopsack pants have the skinny legs and tapered hemlines. Hopsack is a rather thickly woven fabric sorta like a nice domesticated burlap, but soft.
Shorter length...nice.

Another style that Levi's has remade...... Original 1970s, another sleek style for men.

And finally, put on a real shirt with a real collar and hey...A tie!
whether you choose skinny or wide...Just tie one on & be adult about it.
a selection of 50s 60s vintage skinny ties.

vintage wide ties
