Man - do a google image search for "bolo tie architect" and you get nada. I was sure I'd find a pic of Libeskind wearing a baby-scorpion-ensconced-in-resin bolo.

there has to be some bolos around...i'm going to be mildly depressed if no one delivers today

I am not making this up. A dude just came into my office for a meeting wearing a bolo tie. I'll see if I can be sneaky and snap a pic.

Ddot if you do it you'll be a legend for years around these parts....or at least for a few minutes. Come on, come on....

in a cruel twist of bad luck, I was called in to the meeting. I couldn't believe it. My opportunity at archinect immortality seemingly lost, I spent the entire time distracted by the bolo. A simple accessory that made such a bold statement : dark brown oiled leather with silver tips on the ends, which were just slightly uneven enough to drive me nuts. The center piece was carved wood, reminiscent of the skin of a pineapple, but with some mother-of-pearl inlay that threw the entire ensemble into disarray. Alas, no photos exist to further describe my torturous ordeal. The dude just left. I don't remember a word he said.

that's hilarious....well at least i got a good story out of this. Ddot, do you mean you don't keep hidden cameras on your victims whilst in a meeting?

Jul 7, 04 11:49 am

It was driving me insane. we were meeting just two steps away from where our office digital camera is usually kept. I had gone over to grab the camera and be all sneaky-like, but the partner in charge says 'Hey, poquito! I want you to meet......' and my morning was shot.

Jul 7, 04 12:22 pm

Next time, Ddot, make sure to have a tiny camera attached to your temple AT ALL TIMES to capture precious moments like this on film!

You must! You simply must!

I give you his majesty, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and his legendary Sun God Bolo Tie:

My Spanish teacher in High School was from Roswell New Mexico. He was convinced that he had been probed by aliens and thus wore a space ship bolo everyday. The guy was a real nut job. Sorry no pics. Only if we would have had those handy camera phones back in the day.

architechno has been bringing up some old threads, and I accidentally ran across this one today. So here it is.

Where has bossman been lately, anyway?

I need one of these:

Scorpion, silver studs, arrowhead shape: at least three Old West references, please. If only it had some turquoise on it!

I used to have a bolo tie

there's actually a slim possibility that bossman has been strangled to death by a bolo tie in some dingy, western saloon style bar brawl fight.

speaking of which, i've recently been tempted to add a "whatever happened to so-and-so" thread...but i could remember anybody who had disappeared
