    Not principle? :shuffle:

    The photos don't look particularly appetizing, to be honest, though I'd give it a try were I in the area.

    Rasputin Music
    or
    Blondie's Pizza?

    Sorry spelling things wrong on purpose gets me excited. It's like streaking but without the unpleasant draft.

    How do you know about Rasputins, my teen hangout spot? :sekret:

    Rasputins.

    Rasputins Records
    Sabastian Chabal
    this chick with a beard
    or
    Rasputins penis in a jar (there's pictures of it online)

    I C.

    It comes up on the first page of results in a Google search for Blondie's Pizza. :eek:

    Is the memory of Full House injurious to regional pride in the Bay Area?

    :shrugs: For some, it may be.
    No! Why would a silly, long-defunct sitcom have that effect?
    For San Franciscans, it's the shame of the city.
    It's a point of pride with me, actually.

    You mean the 2? :rolleyes: Manuscript thank you.

    Favorite skater "type":
    1. The Ballerinas-emphasize line, toe point, flexibility, & extension. (Cohen, Czisny)
    2. The Figure Skaters-speed, flow, edges. Neither contortionists nor actresses (Sato, Kerrigan)
    3. The Athletes-feats of raw power and physicality on display here (Slutskaya, Ito, Meissner)
    4. The Artists-sumptuous expression and deep musical connection (Baiul, Chen, Bobek)
    5. The Space Aliens-voidzzz. these invoke a cultural aspect of the sport. Those that seek to break expectations and expand the vocabulary of the sport. (Hubert, Markova, Stephanie Rosenthal)

    The very best skaters have elements of all 5 aspects, with at least 2 primary.

    Interesting. :COP: My favorites are 2, 4, 1, 5, 3. (then again, it really is a draw between 2 & 4..)

    Since there is more weight on 3 options, I choose 4)-Barcelona Nights/Adios Nonino/Zorba the Greek.

    U?
