Had to stop, was making myself ill.

Curated -- oh, yes. Also "bespoke."

I mean I understand bespoke is a real word and in common use in other countries but it's not typically used in the USA. I always think folks who use bespoke are just trying to make themselves (or their product) feel superior.

I usually hear "bespoke" used in terms of upscale suits, really expensive dining, and stuff like that, but I used to subscribe to a motorcycle magazine that regularly used the word to refer to unique, customized motorcycles, especially racing bikes. Motorcycles. Bespoke motorcycles. Ummmmm... okay.
