  1. Thanks for checking on me you all. I really do not have a reason why I stopped visiting HAIF other than I am doing something rare: I'm graduating from University of San Francisco and it only took me four years. ; ) Pretty much I have been very busy. I visit SSP every now and then and although it says I have not visited in a month and a half, I do not always log in when I visit. It is funny to read some of my old post on here. By the way WesternGulf, what neighborhood are you in? I did get your e-mail and I did e-mail you directly back.
  2. Some good news out of this thread. Hey, I shop at Forever 21 Men in Union Square in San Francisco sometimes and you can really dress the stuff up. I can say I am sick of the emo scene too, but you have to be really selective to pull off the look when in that store. You cannot beat the prices either.
  3. I use to live in a duplex style apartment near the Contemporary Arts Museum off of Bayard when I lived in Houston, only a block or two from the rail line, and that walk was hell.
  4. craigslist is godsent. I am moving to San Francisco in a few weeks and I was extremely nervous because of my fear of moving to the most expensive city in the nation and I did not want to live with the parents while I was in school. I checked out a few listings and I have found my place. That looks like a good listing above but be aware that looks can be deceiving. I found that out this week when looking at some places, but I found one that fits me. Good luck.
  5. Are the Richey Street rowhomes in the warehouse district sold out? I checked HAR but there are none listed. Just one more Sterrett Street condo left. I checked the Sterrett Street project website and it says the Richey Street elevation starts construction January 2006. Anyone been there since then to see if construction has started?
  6. I believe that is what Galveston uses with their streetcars. No overhead wires I believe. Also the Perley Thomas streetcars on St Charles in New Orleans.
  7. Does anyone know how much money Houston got for federal funding with this line?

    Megawalk

    Thanks goodness. I thought this was an actual project when I read the title. I wonder if anyone even knows when the last skywalk was even constructed? Seems like more cities want to get rid of them that truly do not need them. *Ahem* Houston. Atleast they should.
  9. Great news, but ummm $150 million? I'm sure that price will probably change since we ae talking 5 or 6 years down the road and I am assuming it will be more.
  10. If anyone want to see the world premeire of Beyonce's new video. Click Here. The ____ is beautiful. The director Hype Williams is a genius. Click on download under the picture of her in the pink. When they ask for a username, type beyonceworld and the password is nohotlinking. http://beyonceworld.fanwired.com/
  11. Looks like I need to clear some plans for that weekend to get a plane ticket. I have not been back home in a while.
  12. OK. I am taking the citykid route but I hope Town & Country reflects the 2nd Street Reatil District in Downtown Austin. The materials used in their project does not look as phony as the AS community. But the Westheimer and Kirby development is suppose to be by the same developers as the disrtict in Austin. http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread...?threadid=93018
  13. Probably posted for amusement but true words have never been spoken. I always wanted citykid09 to give up on Houston and start bugging Dallas since they are the booming ones. Citykid09, Houston sucks. Does that answer most of your questions now? Oh yeah, a new quote to put in the what quote describes forumers here thread: "I asked someone in Bryan how do they like Houston and................" Sorry Subdude and editor. I am just having a little fun.
  14. I was counting down for you to make this thread after I saw something on SSC. Seriously. LOL.
  15. Oh no. No offense Velvetj, but as an extremely light skinned black person myself, that whole thing get's on my nerves. But anyway, I agree that the acting is not that great, but for the most part the girl is talented and yes it sounds like a personal issue, but we all have our opinions. As far as the joining Houston rappers that are starting to get noticed on a national level, I don't mean to try to defend the person, but just to be open minded, that is with every artist it seems and not just DC3. Is it the fact that the group is at a cerain status and they are not reppin'? What if it was someone like Brooke Valentine who has left Houston in the same fashion as evryone else.
  16. Beyonce is overrated? I would have thought she was neither over or under, compared to who she is up against these days. I mean she is one of the few that actually refuses to lip sync in performances and has anyone seen her without make up? Still better than average. OK, that's another thread. As far as the clothing line, she went a little far and is using her success to make a living. I remember when she announced the stuff, she claimed it would be affordable. I guess millionaires forget what is affordable after they have been up there for so long. I actually visited the website, and the stuff is anything but affordable. I will say the clothing line is overrated.
  17. and get rid of those high school cafeteria posters on the outside.
  18. So what's going on here? It's finally Texas' turn to vote for gay marriage huh? Well unfortunately, like someone else said earlier, we have the whole state voting. But we also cannot forget that some times politically conservative does not always mean socially.
  19. ^^ Both of your ideas sound great actually. The metal really shows Houston's quirkiness. Just an off the wall question: Once development comes to this bayou, would anyone feel safe living on it?
  20. People can really give off the impression that they are not innovative on here. Tell my why Allen's Landing cannot be cleaned up. Thanks for the update Houstonian in Iraq.
  21. I like #5. Pretty good resume I guess. Don't forget who brought rail to town though.
  22. I hate to be the bad news in this thread, but what has this mayor done?
  23. Also Habita is opening, which is claimed to be a new chic industrial style retail concept. It is suppose to open February 2006. Also nmainguy, why is your favorite smiley?
  24. Wrong. I have a friend in Dallas that has been waiting on Victory for years. Try the 90's. Maybe a Dallasite on this forum could tell you.
