It could be the Australian setting and/or the film’s writer, Nick Cave’s, outsider status that gives 2005’s The Proposition it’s fresh feel.

Mechanically, there is very little you need to do to make a new Softtail badass. That comes stock. But up until now, this upper-end Harley model has also been weighed down with tons of stock trim and comfort features that guys like you and I would immediately unbolt and eBay once we got it home. The new Blackline is the Softtail you’d have after you stripped it down, blacked it out, etc. Except now, Harley’s doing the work for you.
Don’t think of this as giving up. When you’re lying there in your post-pizza, starch induced coma, think positively.

You probably drank a barrel of wine last year. Ever wonder what happens to the empty barrels? We didn’t think so. Luckily though, San Diego artist/designer, Gustaf Rooth, thought about it. He also took action. He and his small team produce handmade furniture from used wine barrels that isn’t just rad, but also built of 99% recycled material. Their designs are functional, solid and each peice is unique. We’ll drink to that.
Sure, making the birdhouse from recycled wood and finishing it with a natural, soy-based finish helps the environment. But, the part you play might be even more crucial.
