Ok, maybe this is overblown, but I think the man deserves his own thread.

I think it would also give him a chance to tell the world what exactly he does for a living that he can smoke & post all the time. :shock:Cool

I'm j/k of course, but man, you make me jealous on a daily basis! Razz

Maybe you are just the tip of the iceberg and those who never post smoke even more than you? I don't know how that would be humanly possible, though... scratch

I'm sitting here laughing, man. I'm sure there are others who smoke as much as I do. But I work at home as a graphic artist and writer, so I get to do all the smoking I want. And as you have seen, I want to smoke all the time. And I've built a tobacco stash to make sure I don't run out any time soon.

 You should probably put this on recording...as you've been asked this before, if I recall correctly.
Great to be your own boss.  But more demanding, as far as results go, than working for one I imagine.

Sometimes it's great, sometimes it isn't. Being a freelancer has many pitfalls, including having down time inbetween jobs and not getting paid. But I get to work at home, work my own schedule, smoke what I want when I want, listen to the music I want, and lots of baseball games, too. The rewards are give and take.

Ya, I've noticed how many times Jim posts to the "what you are smoking" thread. Looks like maybe 6 or so bowls/day.

Me, if I go beyond 3 or 4 max/day I'm burned out!

Don't know how you and maybe monbla can do it.

Shocked 


Cheers,

RR

In my case, it's addiction!! The fact that I seldom smoke the same tobacco twice in a row or even twice in the same day keeps me interested and helps avoid tongue burn out. Going from flavor to flavor works for me. I used smoke three or four blends, but ever since I joined internet pipe forums, I've expanded my thinking on the subject. Sometimes, it's a pain to decide what to smoke next, but I like variety, so it's worth it.

Hello Jim,

The description of some of the pipes you are smoking sounds impressive. Would love to see some pictures if it's not too much trouble. I enjoy turning green with envy.Laughing

Thank you, fellas. The problem with pictures is that I don't feel comfortable using photo bucket or most online resources like that. That why I got the idea to describe the pipes I smoke in detail. That and the fact that I have a lot of pipes and am also too darn lazy to photograph them all (I'm also a lousy photographer). I do have a few pics of a few of my pipes. If somebody is interested and doesn't mind PMing me their e-mail address and has a photo account, I'll send them to you and you can post them here. There's about 30 pictures of maybe 20 pipes.

I've personally gotten some great ideas for tobaccos to try just based on Jim's posts. Smoke on, JimInks!! cheers

FYI there's a built-in image hoster with this forum. You just need to post it from a computer. It's sort of a weird interface, but pretty easy to post a bunch of pics if they're all ready to go.


  1. Click on the icon with the disk and pic.
  2. Choose the file.
  3. Choose the size (800px, etc.)
  4. Upload.
  5. It'll spit out the links. Click on the [url] one and COPY THE CODE MANUALLY, not using just the copy button. It doesn't do anything (as far as I can tell).
  6. Paste link into post.


I think that's it?

I dunno if this will show a picture, but if it does, the pipe is a Savinelli Non-Pareil OomPaul.

Edit: You have to click on the link to see it. Not quite what I wanted.

That worked. Had you pasted it into the Insert Image button, it would have displayed. Once you've done it, you can Preview and should see it displayed.

Actually, just because of your praise of EGR I splashed out for a tub!

Now, me not being an aro guy and all, well that should tell you something!

Haven't opened it yet, but I'll "get a round tuit'!

The above God-ugly pipe is a 1980 medium bend Lorenzo Leganza Sigma 8635. Ugly as sin, but for some reason, I like it. The pipe below is one of my favorites: a pre-transition Barling.

That Ascorti is just quirky enough. And I love the blasted Barling!

I'm happy I can now finally get context for some of the pipes you refer to in your numerous posts! cheers

This D'Agento is a good smoker that I bought in 1980, but I doubt I've smoked more than a dozen times because I'm usually working and this is not a clencher. There are two brass spots on the rim.

Thank you for the nice words. Yes, I've been a pipe smoker since the summer of 1974. I didn't start out to be a collector, and had not thought of myself as one until my then-girlfriend pointed it out to me in the mid-1980s. "That's a great collection!" You'd think I'd already realized I had a collection, though I hadn't considered myself a collector. I was a smoker; never thought of it beyond that. I probably had about 80 at the time. I have more than 200 now, though a number of them (the Ardors and most of the Rinaldos) I inherited when one of my best friends passed away. I can't smoke them out in my lifetime, but sometimes I see a pipe and really want to buy it. But I resist the temptation. I haven't bought a new one in years, and so long as my resolve holds out, and my bank account complains, I won't!

Jim, I love that Barling!! Do you still want it? I mean it's so old and all you might be tired of it now. I'll take it. Wink
