Hello /class/y Ladies and Gentlemen, any suit style recommendations for attending a local event?
A tailored light grey new wool double breasted three button jacket, flat front charcoal trousers and a shirt which suits the occasion, not so small a collar as to be understated but not so large as to be belligerent.
I was wondering how to create the "perfect" cup of tea, such as how much sugar, milk, water and the order of how to do such.
I shall try every suggestion I get.
I find that the "perfect cup of tea" really depends on the situation. For instance, during a easy going weekend morning, I find a black cup of English Breakfast or Earl Grey absolutely exquisite, however by mid-day and later afternoon a smooth Mate tea or a rooibos tea are more to taste.
I personally find any sort of additives like milk and sugar, with the exception of mixed brews of tea, tend to be reserved for when cheaper teas are all that is available, as they tend to weaken the strength and unique flavour of better teas.
I use generally any kind of green tea, even if it has rosemary in it.
But mostly what I add to it is Nectresse sweetner (It's expensive on it's side, but it's taste might be worth your money. I have tasted it before and used it a lot, but each packet is like 10 cent since there's foil around it to protect it. Sugar, I don't like a lot since it adds up to my calories.) But if I were you, I'd try adding milk into it to get in protein if you have a desire for protein and calories. But I just make green tea with artificial sweetner, but eh, it's just me to reduce calories and get better taste. You can try artificial sweeteners with all these other people are giving you. (Nectresse is expensive on it's part, but you might be able to cut out a bit of calories on your part with it since it has some Erythritol,Sugar,Molasses, and it's main ingredient, Monk Fruit Extract which comes from China.
I'd really want to try tea with the 140 servings and not 40 packets however.
I once had a lively blend of Indian teas. Tasted great by itself.
One day I tried it with milk and sugar. There is still a stain on my armchair.
I recently acquired an album of sonatas and partitas of J. S. Bach, but was disappointed to learn that the original harpsichord accompanying the violin was substituted with a piano. Granted, I do prefer piano with my Chopin, I find the harpsichord quite a lot more exquisite than the piano, and of course, especially with baroque pieces.
What is your conception, gentlemen? Would you concur that the harpsichord is much too underrated in today's day and age, or do you prefer the piano in any setting?
Oh! I have found this to be so in other classical albums as well. The harpsichord has such a "stun" like percussion, so sharp. But the piano leaves the pieces with echoes that change the mood.
By the way, I am not sure what baroque music really is, what it means? I have looked it up before, but it's very vague for me.
Baroque music refers to the era preceding the classical period, and encompasses the works of Bach, Händel, Vivaldi, Tartini amongst many others. It is generally characterized by an excessively rhythmic performance, in stark contrast to the later music in which pauses and calmness were common. Baroque pieces tend to keep going and going, and are rarely interrupted by more than a moment's pause from all instruments.
Also the piano, which largely replaced the harpsichord, was invented around the same time the of the conclusion of the baroque era - and so the chances are great that any music you may possess of which the harpsichord is a part, is indeed baroque.
I enjoy the sound of the harpsichord as it is much more raw an fresh than the dull tones of the piano - when is comes to baroque era that is. Classical era is a different matter altogether I daresay.
Good evening, gentlemen.
I come to you today curious as to whether or not any of you fellows are proficient in a second (or third!) language.
I myself have studied Russian on and off for the past two years and may plan on learning conversational French as well.
The are three radio stations held in esteem by the educated Russians:
1.Echo of Moscow
along with the Novaya Gazeta paper this is the last remaining vestige of an independent public sphere.
Most important liberal journalists such as Latynina, Venediktov and Ganapolskiy work from here. Still it's owned by Gazprom.
2.Voice of America
American state radio initiated by Zbigniew Brzezinski. It's somewhere to the right from Glenn Beck but it can afford more than anything transmitted from Russia. As opposed to BBC, EuroNEWS or Deutsche Welle all VoA channels are run by autonomous editors and not by translators.
Primarily a music channel; Never listened to but my buddies like it a lot. Ran the "Silver Overshoe" prize every year, usually granted for plagiarism in the entertainment industry. Last year's ceremony (http://video.yandex.ru/users/row-het/view/532/) caused a tremendous outrage since it was focussed on the mock elections, the resulting mock trials and the corruption in the mock church; not a single line was dropped about music. It was presented by a (former) pop star and a (former) tv comedian; both booted last year for their involvement in the liberal opposition.
I'd love to learn about similiar networks in any of the languages spoken here :)
Bulgarian being my native language I also speak fluid English and French, mediocre Russian, broken German and a tiny bit Japanese.
Though I only get to use the English IRL, sadly.
Functional but not exactly fluent in French. I'm told my accent is like a Québécois street performer on acid, but it gets the job done.
I went to every single tobacco shop in my city and most of the gas station convenience stores. Can't find a single pack and most don't even carry unfiltered cigarettes of any manufacturer.
Does anyone have a reliable online source for unfiltered Lucky Strike Red's?
I'm having trouble finding an online source.
In Pearland, Texas there were a few gas stations and head shops where you could get them.
You said tobacco shops, have you tried a head shop yet? I've found that a lot of stores that sell paraphernalia also sell Lucky Strike Unfiltered.
i went to QT they sell them there just like 9 bucks a pack
Djarium Black. Smoke one and sit down for a VERY long time.
Good day Gentleman
Today’s thread concerns a gentleman’s choice in music. A man is defined by the music he enjoys therefore he must choose his music carefully.
First of all, what kind of music you listen to?
is it jazz ? , is it classical music ? or something else
Second please notify the reason why fine gentleman such as yourself must listen to thouse kind of music
Lately I've been quite absorbed by the italian jazz scene, and I do believe that jazzers like Nicola Arigliano and Paolo Conte are truly a gift from the music gods.
Oh, i was almost forgetting!
Another Conte's masterpiece:
I would have to say the music of Dave Brubeck can be quite stimulating. It is jazz of the most unusual and wonderful variety. Unsquare Dance is an especially sophisticated number.
Although they are used most of the time for conduct unbecoming, can guns be worthy of a gentleman? I believe they can. There is nothing more exhilarating than improving one's marksmanship.
Marksmanship is a talent most suitable of any gentleman especialy when hunting fowl such as doves
One mustn't forget defending one's honour in a duel, old boy.
War can be necessary, I believe, but it is always undesirable. Unfortunately, that's the case with many things in life, and there's little most can do. I greatly enjoy combat simulations, but I am opposed to the idea of joining any modern armed force in a combat role.
As for pure marksmanship, I own two air pistols and an air rifle. Considering the risk to myself and others and the hassle involved in getting a firearm, I'd rather not. I do not trust myself with having one at home.
Ranting aside, I, as you might have guessed, agree fully with what you say, OP. It is relaxing and entertaining, as well as it provides a fun way to spend time or compete with ones friends.
Where at present, are the unprecedented exceptional trade surpluses in the world that are unique to this day and age?
How long will they last?
I should like to make a casual lavish splurge in one area of another that I can repack as another financial instrument in the future when time's are less good for that thing.
Gentleman don't smoke the poor man's weed, we concentrate large quantities of it into oil. We then vaporize it out of elaborately gorgeous borosilicate apparatuses equipped with titanium elements.
Consumption can be classy. Winston Churchill was classy. And when a woman said "YOU sir are drunk!" he replied most epically, "You ma'am are ugly, and I will be sober in the morning!"
Many of the world's most noted gentlemen partook of cannabis. In fact, it is posited that the bard himself smoked this fine herb.
Here is an article I found highly interesting: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2001/03/0301_shakespeare.html
If you are such an untrustworthy cad that a little intoxication removes from you the very vestiges of civility then you have no place here. If gentlemanliness is to be but a facade of false habits, a dainty filigree of lies we place upon ourselves to obscure our underlying lout then what worth has it?
If a man's spine is so weak as to be bent under the slightest intoxication he is merely a con. If fine weeds, poppy milk or absinthe rob you of all sense of good conduct then what would a woman's intoxicative charms leave of you but the true husk of depravity which so worries you that you would avoid insobriety at all costs in order to conceal it.
