My glasses broke. And i just had new lenses put in them.

Oliver Peoples of Soho, where i bought them during the dot com boom, told me that:

1) the frame isn’t available anymore because frames have to change every 2 years because they are fashion

2) they only expect their good plastic frames to last 5 years if you’re lucky.

Made to break. Nice business model.

In the meantime, they are ducktaped together and hold for about an hour at a time if I’m lucky.

    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get
    a lot of spam comments? If so how do you prevent it, any
    plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s
    driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.

    May I simply say what a comfort to uncover a person that truly understands what they are talking about over the internet.

    You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it
    important. More and more people must look at this and understand this side of
    your story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular since you
    certainly have the gift.
