Could a Gorf fix that thread title?
"I must say though, artists like Kurt or Thelonious Monk who people think have something to say of the highest importance but are really just suicidal or insane sort of freak me out. Why? Well, everyone thought Monk was really "out there" but they followed his lead and jazz changed. Turns out he really was insane and was finally locked up. Does that mean that the jazzers were wrong to follow him? No, but still." - STeVE
Always interesting having conversations with people who don't know what they're talking about, to remind you how much you know that others don't. Also gives you patience for dealing with these people once you can finally get them to listen to you.

If one looks to the past of what came before the Box Of Vision, it appears a solid concept, designed around products that already existed (or, seemed poised to exist). Nowadays to make that relevant, we need not only at the very least a second Box Of Vision ("double-vision"?), or perhaps a bigger concept ("Bookcase Of Vision", anyone?).
I too suffer from going all-in on a product whose usefulness is rapidly undercut by the next stage in the genesis of the products the one product is released in accordance with. Perhaps in the future, I shall store all my makeup in this box (knowing full well I have no current need or desire to wear, let alone display, makeup). I may seek to locate further pages of storage-capable mylar, which will not be either compatible with the box, or aesthetically-matching of what's already in there, diminishing the validity of the product as a place to hold boots, the contents of the next generation of commemorative singles releases, or even as a Jello mold. (mmm, moldy Jello - finally a proper application for that "green" color!)
The more likely scenario, will be finally girding my loins, and doing my all to store the right and proper products inside this right-and-proper storage product...and then higglety-pigglety tossing it aside for the deluxe edition products in the deluxe edition boxes, which will probably be either 1/8th" too-short or too-tall to fit comfortably aside them on a shelf without throwing the balance off the cabinet.
If you went home with somebody, I'm pretty sure it counted a lot.
Just as I arrived at the party, I realized I didn't have my wallet with me...where my driver's license is. :yikes:
I started the evening with a glass of mystery punch, then had a "root beer"-based beer(ish) drink, 5.9% alcohol, waited about 2-1/2 hours, then we left at 10:30...driving verrrrrry carefully.
Today, my "2nd coffee" was the new "Unfiltered" variety of Angry Orchard hard cider. And, I may not even see another drinkie-drink this week.
Have I mentioned, I dropped 20 pounds this fall? I totally blame my lack of drivers license on that, since I haven't worn those pants in some time, leaving my wallet in my older jeans. So, whatever may be going wrong in my life right now, I've already gotten my first New Years resolution out of the way! Check!
Wait... Dilly is bragging because he lost weight and doesn't drink as much now that he is too lazy to fish his wallet out of his fat pants? Translating Dilly to English can be hard, and there is a lot of talk about specific alcoholic beverages for the point I think he's making.
Oops... I answered my own question: who gives a shit?
