The finest, chicest brand of outdoor gear available. It's prices reflect the chic nature, urban-outdoor friendliness and fabulous color schemes that Yvon Chouinard's Patagonia company produces. A fave among the yoga-girl set. They are really nice clothes. Look for the web special on the site.
My Solar Green White Smoke Patagucci jacket keeps me safe and protected from the elements when I stride out every morning to walk the dog.
What you see on TV when the news channels go into 24-hour disaster mode. As a viewer, you respond as you do for flesh porn -- you can't turn your eyes away, you keep coming back to it, you never are fulfilled after watching it, and you feel bad inside when you're done. For examples of disaster porn, withess Fox's coverage of the hurricanes of 2005, or CNN/Fox/MSNBC for the Sept 11, 2001 terror attacks.
I've watched the last 2 weeks of hurricane disasterporn.
