    Re: Your Favorite Brands

    Claussen pickles
    Macintosh computers
    Coca-Cola
    Hanes underwear
    Heinz ketchup
    Viva paper towels (soft enough to double as tissues in a pinch)
    Charmin
    Bose speakers and headphones
    Nike for athletic shoes, Rockport for casual wear, and my work boots (difficult for an OSU fan) are Wolverines
    Also, not really a brand, but buy all your cargo securing supplies from Trailines on Windisch Rd. Much larger selection and half the price of the truck stops.

    Have you tried red beans and rice? I hear there good for junk in the trunk, or so says Sir Mix-A-Lot. I believe he is an authoritative source on all matters callipygian.

    I'm blessed with a small backside too, so whenever I lose a few pounds, I have to wear a belt or else I can't keep my pants up. I need to get some more casual belts.

    As far as jeans go, as a guy I don't think you can go wrong with a good pair of levis. Every pair I get lasts for years.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I use an electric shaver, and JEEZ, this stuff is a godsend. If you use an electric shaver and haven't tried it, I urge you to do so.

    Biore facial scrub/cleanser

    Head and Shoulders shampoo

    Old Spice Body Wash (although I'm not above jacking some of my sister's girly body wash if I'm at home and in a pinch!! Speaking of which: how many bottles of "ingredients" do you females here on RZ have in your bathtub/shower?!?! I swear, no exaggeration, that my sister has at least 25!!!!)

    Re: Your Favorite Brands

    Three letters come to mind...TMI

    Let's see, I've had three pairs of Birkenstocks in 25+ years. (And since they let me wear them at work, that's about all I wear, unless I'm on the diamond or a dirt bike)

    Dark chocolate

    Fred Meyer department store soda (Citrus Drop for me, Dr. K for everyone else)

    For larger items I'll look on craigslist before darkening the door of any retail store. (I will swing by Goodwill during lunch at least once a month, though. I just picked up some "roller" luggage for our Disneyland trip next month) For smaller items/electronics? eBay or amazon

    Microsoft/Windows/PCs

    Verizon wireless

    Limewire (download.com)

    Reds/Vikings/Blazers/UO Ducks since the early '70s

    Mrs. gm since '86

    Dogs yes, cats no

    I'm partial to my Hammond/Suzuki XK-2 keyboard and Motion Sound KBR-M amp, of course if a real B-3 ever dropped in my lap I wouldn't pass up the challenge...

    Re: Your Favorite Brands

    I should add eBay.

    I've bought probably a couple hundred items off eBay over the last 8 years or so and have NEVER not received what I paid for.

    Exercise due diligence on eBay and your chances of being "taken" are slim to nil. (KNOCK ON WOOD)

    Re: Your Favorite Brands

    This is a fun thread! I'm surprised at how many guitarists there are here -
    Also, the Bose stereo thing is shocking to me. (Bose = overpriced cheap gear from a company that does great marketing IMO)

    My list:
    (leaving out musical equipment that I endorse)
    organic chicken and grain fed beef
    rolex (mine is a '59 Explorer watch. veru light and no batteries. It's acoustic!)
    Nokia phones
    Gaggia espresso machines
    Diesel jeans - they hold their shape for years. Levis and the others don't do that for me.
    I'll try to think of more-

    Wally: Mine is a mid-70s submariner.

    Nice call. BTW, I started using a Braun shaver this year and there's no way the skin on my neck will ever let me go back to using a Norelco rotary

    I think this is an interesting thread too. I'm amazed at some of the brand loyalties. I usually don't buy things just because of their brand, but it can simplify the process if you always know what you're getting and don't need to make decisions over-and-over.
    I always thought Bose speakers sounded better to me, but my hearing is not all that great. (there's an artillery simulator story, but not here) What brands of speakers do you find to generally be the best? I trust your ears way more than mine.

    So here's my list:
    Tide laundry detergent
    Crest toothpaste
    Dawn dishwashing liquid
    (See, I still send money home. )
    Tone soap
    RC Cola
    Aussie shampoo & conditioner
    Cincinnati sports teams

    and recently MBT shoes.

    5 of my last 7 cars were Toyotas, but that's not completely loyal is it?

    Everything else I have my favorites, but I still try the other brands from time to time.
