I ate a chili pepper and when I woke up, this site was here.
Around Summer 2002, I was spending money on nothing but bills for school and who knows what. My brother had just gotten Scars, to which my impression was "that's really dumb to spend all that money on sunglasses", but then I tried them on and really noticed the difference in quality. I'd never seen a lens be so clear before. My comment was Everything looks like the Autolevel function in Photoshop. What a nerd I am sometimes. At that point the Splice came out and my brother wished he had waited and gotten that instead. So one day when I was at a cookout playing hooky from work, the one shred of champagne taste that I had kicked in and I decided to get a pair
After that, I got a pair of minutes, but they were too girly and didn't look like the online picture, so I gave those to my sister and then got a pair of leather Mars, since they were so odd. That lead to a pair of 24k X-Metal XX's, and a Time Bomb. Then on and on and on. Once the site took off, it was all over. I think I had a dozen or so when that happened.

(Social) media blackout. Good idea anyway

That temple scraping by the earstems can be rough. I have a few, but seldom wore them even before they became overly expensive.

Price point on Coldfuse wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

The 24K is really nice. Hammers needed to appear on more of the X-Metals.

The newly released M Frame is a mix of Gen1 logo and gen 2 hammerfang stems.

Welcome. Thank you for your service, and hope you recovered well.

Almost like the classic goggle pink iridium

Love the hatchet. Came out around the time the site started, so good memories.

Welcome, great to have you here. Nice to hear that the site's been useful for your work. It takes a bit of effort to keep the database up to snuff, especially when the 500 female glasses come out a quarter with 14 colorways each.
My son's been watching Crocodile Hunter every night for months, so he may be game to move, but I don't know about that whole Christmas in summer concept.

Believe so. I started updating the Chrystl and Coldfuse, and those all use the new base Prizms. All are $10 under the Iridium counterparts.

One looks like Matte Clear, the other Polished

Based on these latest photos, it looks so.

Nice. I've been planning on doing something with the python skins that I've collected, but never have the time or donor frames to experiment. Glad to see how it would have come out.
