In 2004, Brig received a generous gift from one of his students while teaching abroad in Moldova. The student’s name was Oleg, and he literally gave Brig the clothes off his back: a ratchet belt. Oleg told Brig that he used the belt while serving in the Russian military. Instead of using holes and a prong as a fastener, this belt used something different: a tab on the buckle ratcheted into teeth-like ridges sewn to the back of the leather strap.

Fascinated with the utility of the belt, Brig thought it could become a huge hit with some stylistic changes. He collaborated to improve and refine the buckle for the fashion world. As it turned out, the ratcheting buckle was already public domain, and a SlideBelts patent would not be possible until 9 years later when he improved and redesigned the buckle into a dual-ratchet lever.

Until their unique dual-ratchet redesign was ready, the older buckle style would have to do: a familiar but awkward buckle with a tiny protruding lever to activate the ratchet. Michelle undertook the task of launching the belts into the e-commerce scene while Brig worked at Nugget Markets to pay for inventory costs. With a lot of tireless hard work and attention to detail, SlideBelts grew from their garage into a new office space. With over 40,000 belts sold in 2013 and the recent success of their Kickstarter Survival Belt project, SlideBelts is well positioned to continue its exponential growth.

Our commitment to refining and improving our products means we utilize the best materials for you. Some of our competitors use synthetic fillers in their belts. SlideBelts does not. We understand how much you value a high-quality perfect fitting belt that’s comfortable, easy to adjust, and stylish. We offer high-quality belts so you will look great!

With all due respect to Mr. Kahaiali`i, I do not care for the condescending implication that hoales like the pinhed have to call him "Willie K" because we can't handle Kahaiali`i. bounce

The set for the theatrical Diamond Dogs tour, which was built to resemble a city (called "Hunger City"), weighed 6 tons and incorporated over 20,000 moving parts including a variety of props (such as streetlamps, chairs and catwalks). The props themselves weren't ready for use until a mere 6 days before the show opened, which led to a variety of technical problems during the tour: a movable catwalk collapsed once during the tour with Jones on it. The set was at least partially based on work by German artist George Grosz. In 1990, while preparing for this Sound+Vision Tour, Jones recalled the difficulties faced by the show, saying it "was good fun and dangerous, with the equipment breaking down and the bridges falling apart on stage. I kept getting stuck out over the audience's heads, on the hydraulic cherry picker, after the finish of 'Space Oddity.'"

Other props worked as expected: for the song "Big Brother", Jones sang from inside a multi-mirrored glass "asylum," emerging during the next song ("Time") from a giant hand.

The show in Tampa, FL was performed without any of the stage props because the truck driver driving those components was delayed after being stung by a bee.

Any help appreciated in finding www.servimg.com contact info. I forgot my password but have also closed the gmail account linked with it over a year ago. Now what? Want to remove images I have posted. Also, if one knows how to remove DDOS from Android phone let me know. Weird, I post some pics from cell here, and then receive some DDOS warning. Oy...

I saw Lewis Wilson in a short feature before "The Last Days of Pompey" in the neighborhood theater back in The Day. Very Happy

I just want to say that the new North Carolina rest-room law means that if a guy wants to hang out in the ladies room he just has to tell them that his birth gender was female.

i would think Carolina's law would require some sort of issued Gender Certification Card, and thus possibly a Bureau of Gendered Affairs
