What the hell kinda pants are those? I guess they'd keep you warm on a cold ride (I'm pretty sure they are CHANEL-more pics of them here)

Automation, bringing more and more production in-house, and having good patent attorneys is part of it. But it all comes down to the stubborn determination of one man — Anthony "Tony" Maglica, the company's founder.
"I will not go out of the country if my life depends on it," Maglica says. "There's no reason for it really."
Maglica is 79 years old and still comes to work every day, often before dawn. He walks the 700,000-square-foot factory floor, checking in on every detail of production.
"It's like a city," he says
Maglica was born into the Great Depression in New York. But he spent his formative years living in Croatia surviving hunger and worse as World War II tore through Europe. When he returned to America and set out to start his own company, he says, he had just $125. He has built a multimillion-dollar business, with more than 700 employees and customers all over the world." more of the story here on NPR
I found my maglite under a car in downtown Phoenix. I now use it to search for rattlesnakes when I walk out my patio door at night.. it's usually stationed right by my front door.
You're losing the calling that you've been faking
And i'm not kidding
It's damned if you don't and it's damned if you do
Be true 'cause they'll lock you up in a sad sad zoo
Oh hidy hidy hidy what cha tryin to prove
By hidy hidy hiding you're not worth a thing
Sew your fortunes on a string
And hold them up to light
Blue smoke will take
A very violent flight
And you will be changed
And you will be in a very sad sad zoo.
I once was lost but now i'm found was blind
But now I see you
How selfish of you to believe in the meaning of all the bad dreaming
Metal heart you're not hiding
Metal heart you're not worth a thing

Because you know if you are seen wearing this and you stole it that something very bad may happen to you by the Karma Gods- like a bird will fly into your face or your bike will suddenly self combust or you will have a skinny girl with glasses jump on your back and bite your ear off.
If you are like me and have dogs and the dogs like to go for car rides and then the dog hair gets stuck deep down into the fabric and you can't ever seem to get it out no matter how hard you try.. well, THIS thing is a miracle worker. I'm not getting paid by them to plug this item either. My friend Yoli's lil brother is a car detailer and I asked him how he gets the dog hair out and he said a rubber brush. They had an extra and so they sent me one and it is so awesome. Just thought I'd share.
Hellz Yeah! I'm glad the Frye boots I got in exchange for a return at the store were just sitting in my closet and hadn't been worn yet. I'm taking them back and exchanging them for these hot ass Frye boots instead. I didn't really feel completely satisfied with the ones I had swapped out in the first place because they had NO heel at all. These are perfect, the heel's not too high, not super flat.
